    I've only grown a cup size from 34B to 34C (atm) but I'm finding it hard to find a bra that actually fits me perfectly.
    Tried different types, and it always seems that my nipples are on show/fall out. Ones which are comfortable to wear are balconette, but I can't wear breast pads with them as 1/2 of the pads show at the top, if I align them properly, where as if I put them to the bottom of the bra, they don't cover my nipples. Any one having the same issue?

    Ugh bras! lol.... I've yet to find one in my size that is comfy. I can still (barely) squeeze into my 36-D one from before I was prego, but they are not as comfy anymore since I really need a cup bigger... the full coverage ones tend to feel a bit "too much" so I've been wearing some very comfy breast feeding (haha) sports bra's I found at Motherhood Maternity. They have smaller straps and extra padding and are super comfy! I'm sure I'll have to buy a bigger size once my milk actually comes in- but for right now they are perfect.

    Maybe try a maternity store in your area? I may check out Victoria Secret when I have time as they actually carry larger cup sizes in a variety of styles... unlike some other stores I've tried.

    Best of luck!!!!

    It's hard to find a maternity/nursing bras which looks pretty yet a reasonable price. And with it being warm weather over here, I don't want too much coverage in case of sweating.

    What if I was to go one cup size bigger preferably smaller on the back? Would it be too spacious?

    I've given up on bras! I am huge now so have to wear tight vests instead to hold me in but it beats having to deal with the itching!! Grrr x

    ive struggled with this aswell as ive got quite large boobies and find it hard to find a decent priced one.
    ive ended up with a £4 t shirt bra from asda :S not amazingly comfortable but better than my boobies hanging out everywhere

    Bra's are a nightmare! I've already had to puchase new bra's in 2 larger sizes and now I've outgrown the ones I've got. I just seem to keep growing and growing. I'm half tempted to try and get one that is too big so I can grow into it, I'm going to have spent a fortune on them by the time I've had this baby!!!!!!

    Ugh, finding a decent bra is a nightmare! I got a couple of maternity bras the other day, but the lack of underwiring doesn't seem to hold mine up very well!!! They'll be down to my knees in a few months!!! Plus, they've gone up to a ridiculous size that I won't be able to find anywhere.

    I have 3 hot milk bras from last time around and they are still fab. Really amazing support for not being wired bras and quite pretty too :). I have only one regular bra that fits anymore so am glad i held onto those!

    I only have one bra that fits me properly right now so I'm hoping next pay to get some more. I should have bought like 3 of these when I found them but I can't remember if there was more than one since I got it on clearance.

    Pre-pregnancy, I was a 34B and only wore underwired bras.
    At 8 weeks pregnant, I went to M&S, and bought 4 non-wired T-shirt bras in 36B.
    Almost 12 weeks later, they still fit perfectly, and are sooo comfy.
    I bought black, white, pink, and spotty (£10 each).

    Aaarghh, its a nightmare!!! I got measured about 6 weeks ago,and had gone from a 34b to a 36 e (!!). Now the bras i bought then are so small, i end up with what my boyfriend calls "quadruple boob!!"- so each boob looks like its cut in half, so i end up with 4 boobs!!!! Its so not a good look!! But like u said its really hard finding ok bras- all the ones iv tried make me look like iv got conical boobs!!!

    Asdas regular underwear is good (not sure if they do maternity), their "the one" bras are amazing!!- better than wonderbras in my opinion, and h&ms maternity bras have quite a big selection (or in my local one they do).

    I bought a lovely maxi dress today, and need a strapless bra to go with it. Im sure that will be lots of fun trying to find!!!
