OK what is going on. I measure 34", yet even the 36" bra feels tight. It bothers me so much. I also feel numbness around where the bra hits the top for the sternum. I usually wear a sort of sports bra (also 36" even though I measure 34" ?!?!?!?) and those are better, but not great either. But this (expensive) maternity bra is annoying! I loosened the straps but I can still just FEEL it right where it hits, and it barely hits. I don't even know. I am so confused and irritated about this. All I want to do is pull it up and away from my rib/sternum area. I'm going to ask my doc about the numbness, I read it could have to do with acid reflux, but it is constant, even when I don't have acid reflux. UGH.
