Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I have already had to go up two cup sizes and it seems that my bra is tight once again! How can I accommodate my growing bust size without investing a fortune in new bras?

The Bump Expert

Good question! I had the same problem. While there are bra back extension bands on the market, I have not come across a wonderful bra with a cup size that grows with you. For that reason I had to purchase a number of bras during my pregnancy. I found out the hard way that you get what you pay for -- budget bras I bought were quickly replaced with quality, professionally fitted maternity numbers with ample support and comfort.

You may not be able to avoid the expense of buying bras, unless you have a friend like me who passes on her Amazonian intimates to pregnant friends once she’s done with them. But you can at least find some solace in the notion that what goes up must come down, so you’ll be able to wear the sizes you outgrew when you begin to lose the baby weight.

One thing you should consider if you need a new bra and are planning to breastfeed is a nursing bra instead of a regular maternity bra. A quality nursing bra will support you until you have your baby and it will become even more useful after the fact.

Whatever you do, make sure you buy a great support bra fitted by a pro. It may be expensive and about as sexy as grandma underwear, but as you can probably already attest, nothing trumps comfort when it comes to the ever-expanding bust line of a pregnant woman.

re: Q: Handling bigger boobs?

Does anyone know where I can get nursing/maternity bras in a size H or bigger? I know, they're huge, but I was a size DDD before pregnancy.

re: Q: Handling bigger boobs?

I recently asked for advice at a maternity shop on what is normal during pregnancy. I felt awful, like something was wrong with me when I left there. The lady told me that something was wrong with my breasts if I was already increasing in cup size at only 25 weeks; I should only be increasing the other number. I was worried until my doc finally set my mind at ease.

re: Q: Handling bigger boobs?

cpm-I cant believe she made you feel that way!...bigger boobs is exactly how I knew I was prego, my bra didnt fit and my shirts were suddenly 2 in too short b/c of their increased size....they have only gotten bigger....regardless of the fact that I'm 23 weeks and am still down 5 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight....I ended up going with a full coverage bra rather then a demi, it tends to give you more room to grow, especially if you combine it with a bra expander.

I wear a G or an H cup regularly and you can get comfortable and beautiful Bras from the Wizard of Bras, you can look them up and purchase online. They are based in so cal.

re: Q: Handling bigger boobs?

i had to go up a cup size within a few weeks of finding out i was pregnant. I purchased a nursing bra to wear when I need exta support but mostly I wear a tank top with a built in bra under my work clothes. It allows for more room to grow with out having to purchase new bras every couple weeks.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

My boobs growing was my first clue i was pregnant with my cheat being sore, because it's never been that way before so i just had to wait for the test to say pos so i could say i told you so lol. But my mom did a little trick for me and she took me to Target and got me a bra that was 3 or 4 sizes higher then what i was. I was a B34 and she got me a C36 i think, but i'm still wearing it only because i'm slowly growing into it untill i will need a bigger one. Try that with Maternity pants too, you can always pull them up untill you fill into them, this saves money and time.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I buy my bras from Bravissimo.com They are based in Europe. They are kind of expensive but they are the best fitting, most comfortable bras I have ever found. I wear a 36G without being pregnant and they have almost any size you can imagine.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Go to the Bravado design website. There they carry bras that grow with you. The silk seamless nursing bra is my favorite and I wear it right now at 30 weeks pregnant. This bra will stretch as you grow. You can go to their site to see who carry's their bras locally and some have fitters especially for their bravado bras

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I use to work in a lingerie dept in JC Penney. and for women who had "expanding bra sizes" (lol) I would reccomend the Bali bras with no underwire. believe me, they are not the cutest thing but they are comfy and are good enough to sleep in too. They come in different colors and can be ordered online or in a catalog for larger sizes. I hope this helps!! I am TTC right now (for about a month with no luck :( ) but that's what I plan to buy if my girls get out of control! Hope this helps!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

My first pregnancy I went from a B to a C then back to a B, and with my second I went from a B to a D and then to inbetween a B and C. Now I'm between a C and D and I'm only 5 months, and 5ft1in in height. I hope I don't get too big, I'm too short to get bigger than a D and not look funny.

jermainesbaby2010 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm at about 7 1/2 weeks and I've already gone up a cup size! Possibly a cup and a half. I'm living out of one bra right now that I got from Lane Bryant a few months ago that has the bubble padding thats removable for when you wash them, so when my bust started growing, I just popped out the inserts and it was like having a brand new bra! I also keep making the shoulder straps longer which gives me a little more space.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I bought a great maternity/nursing bra at Mimi Maternity for about $18.00. It expanded w/me and I used it while I nursed my youngest child. I am now 7 weeks along w/y 3rd and I have grown 1 cup already, so a trip to buy a new bra is in order!

Matthan2b |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I am definately going to need the same advise you are asking for. I am only 5 weeks and I have already gone from a B to a C!!! I am not very comforable with wearing sports bras either..

suzyq678 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I am almost 8 weeks and my breasts were bigger before i even knew i was pregnant! Actually my husband noticed :) Then it all made sense when we found out! I can not wear my bras i am also wearing tanktops with built in bras under everything! I am almost afraid of how big they're gonna get if they are growing this early!

babycoe11 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Your breast size increases based on your prolactine levels, at least this is what my ob and my endocrynologist told me. I have a pituitary tumor that made my prolactine levels go through the roof and I wasn't even pregnant! (I went from an A to a DDD and even started leaking milk!) Now that DH and I are pregnant and I know that my levels will increase I'm terrified of how big that I will become!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Oy...I"m at 5 1/2 weeks and haven't started yet. I'm not looking forward to it, because I'm already a large C cup in a small 5ft, 112lb frame. I don't want to look like a cartoon character!!!! When do you usually start growing?  Pregnancy Ticker

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm 7 weeks and have gone from a 32C to a 32DD in what feels like overnight!! My boobs are my #1 symptom - they hurt so much it's shocking i have to be in some kind of bra at ALL times.... - and my OB says to brace myself, that it WILL get worse and they WILL get bigger... ugh!!!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I am at 30 Weeks and got couple of Bravado nursing bras from a maternity store. They feel amazing. One is with underwire and one without and i love both. They are pricey at $50 but well worth the money. I am hoping they expand and last throughout pregnancy and nursing time frame. BTW - i was a 34C before and now I am a 36E.

grishmabatra |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I finally sucked it up and went to Motherhood this weekend and bought a bigger bra. I was a 36C and was fitted for a 38D. I'm 17 weeks and I've been dreading buying new bras, only because I hate to waste the money if I don't really need too. I invested in a nursing bra because a friend of mine said she was glad she bought those while pregnant because afterwards it was incredibly helpful as she was losing weight and nursing.

multi strap bra and also invest in a adjuster you can get them from beterware catalouge which you clip onto the hooks on the back .and gives you two exta back inches.

kmoldenk |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I had that problem when I was pregnant with my two and I found that wearing a sports bra helped it was comfortable. It just depends on how much support you want. Sports bras have some support.

LizzieB69 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I've given up almost completely on bras. I bought a bunch of sport bras, a size larger, so I'm having room to grow. i'm a small girl 5'3" and 145 pre-pregnancy. But I got so sick my first three months I lost 25 lbs! And my stomach and boobs kept growing. Now I look so weird with my stomach so big and my boobs so large (they are a 34-D!) My husband is shocked because I'm only 22 weeks and I can't see my feet! He says I wasn't even this big the day a gave birth to him. I'm actually kinda nervous there is a hidden twin or something.

Man, you all are lucky because I am 12 weeks and my boobs have not changed, still a 38b. They never changed with my first pregnancy either... boy am I getting jipped! Lol.

BabyHansen |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm 23 weeks and some odd days pregnant right now. I had to buy 3 bras so far. My boobs were a DD but now they are outgrowing an F. Does anyone know where I can go to buy bras to fit bigger than an F. The motherhood maternity only goes up to F's in my area. I tried going to lane bryant. I know they will just keep getting bigger and i'm dreading the engorgement that happened last time when the milk comes in. I looked like I had two watermelons on my chest.

ammunro |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I hear ya! My breast grew from a full 34A to a full 38D! it seemed like ever time i turned around my boobs were bigger. I just mainly stuck to larger sports bras and wore multiple layers. But, when i felt uncomfortable doing that i just got one size bigger and put a sports bra on over the bra to keep everything secure until i grew into it. So far its worked

tiffanator13 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

RE: ammunro I am TTC and I'm already extremely busty and hands down, the 3 best websites for larger cup sizes are barenecessities.com, figleaves.com, and bravissimo.com, the last being a UK company. These companies carrry cup sizes up J-L, including nursing bras! Whatever size you increase to, one of these sites will carry the perfect size for you. Congrats and good luck!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

During my 1st pregnncy my boobs went from 34b to 38d so to aviod spending a lot of money on bras I just wore sports bras. They were a whole lot more comfortable anyway.

bjones86 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Mocky, you are a blessing! I was having trouble finding bras that are 32-34E before I was pregnant, now that I have out grown the cups I didn't think I would ever find cute nursing bras that were G+. Your post is a tremendous help!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm only 6 weeks, and yesterday I finally gave in and bought a new bra. I've never worn such a big bra. I'm in a DD, and I'm only 5 ft. The lady who helped me told me at this rate I'd probably go up again before long.

CT26 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm only 4 weeks and my boobs are quite sore and hard in the middle! They are growing, but one seems to be growing much more than the other. The one growing more has always been larger than the other pre-pregnancy, but it feels like it's going to explode! Is this normal?

melijake |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm not quite 17 weeks, and my breasts have grown tremendously. Normally a 34D and I don't even know what I am now. I've yet to be fitted. However, what I'm wondering is, has anybody experienced one breast growing larger than the other? I feel as though my left breast is growing much more signifigantly. Will this continue? Any knowledge on the subject would be great!

iplay4him |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

CT26: I have had the same issue as you. My breasts are sore, but at night sleeping they are even worse and have woken me up at night. The best advise I can give you is get a supportive comfortable bra to sleep in...it does wonders. I have also found hugging a pillow when laying on my side relieves the pain. I don't have any idea why since they hurt to touch, but it is one of the most comfortable ways I have found to sleep.

MThorsby |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

For those of you who have outgrown your local department or lingerie store's sizes, I would try the store {intimacy}. I was a 34 DDD before I got pregnant and now I'm up to a 36 I (yeah, I didn't know they made bras that size previously). The bras at {intimacy} are a little more expensive, but they are very high quality and I've been very happy with the bras I have gotten there. They sell nursing bras too, which although are not fashionable, are quite comfortable and will come in handy after our little boy is born. For those of you who aren't very far along and are having pain, don't fret, it goes away after the first trimester (or at least did for me). Best of luck!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Jo-Ann Fabrics carries bra extenders in a 2 or 3 pack. i know it just prolongs the inevitable. I am just 6 weeks now, and i was a 36D two weeks ago, but i think i might be DD now. i will go for the bra extenders first, just to see of the equivalent of a 38D will work, for now :)

AliceaMiller |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I would go with sports bras. They fit any cup size and are nice and stretchy. I had to do that with my son. I went from a B cup to a DD. I wasn't about to go out and buy a new bra every couple weeks. the best part is you'll probably still be able to wear them after you have the baby.

kryztel182002 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

9 weeks and the girls have been bigger since about 7, but now its starting to show in my clothes. Dresses I never had issues with have to be tugged over my chest and my mom keeps getting on my case for almost popping out of my dress- i'm really not trying to! it fit before! However, I'm enjoying the feeling of being a "busty betty" for the meantime. I've heard from quite a few, including my mother, who started out very small busted that pregnancy is what it took to actually have a larger, more proportional bust size and they never lost it. It's amazing what hormones will do to us!

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I'm 17weeks and on my 3rd bra already! Going at this rate I'll need a new one every 6 weeks or so! I know how you feel and there isn't much we can do except keep on buying bigger bras!

smbeyer@yahoo.com |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I feel your pain. I am 36 weeks pregnant, and went from a D to an F. With only four weeks to go, I am praying they don't get too much bigger. Motherhood sucked at fitting me, and their return policy with bras is horrible. I ended up going to a lactation center at the local hospital who had a store, and although it's not the sexiest item in the world, I have NEVER had a more comfortable bra. I suggest contacting your hospital to see if they sell them, because those nurses won't sell you a bra that doesn't fit right.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

I am almost 10 weeks now and already busting out of my bras. I was a 34B and probably a 36C by now. I know a shopping trip to buy a new bra is in my not so distant future!

eluino78 |

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Get that new bra if you haven't already! I was like you eluino78 I just at 16 weeks decided to purchase 2 new bras and it is so nice! I went to TJMaxx and bought a beautiful CK bra normally $36 for only $10. I also bought a bunch of really nice clothes for work. I just bought the next size up for now since I am not too much bigger (other than my boobs). As soon as the word maternity is slapped on the label so is a higher price! I figure after the baby I can wear these same clothes again until I get back to my regular weight.

Q&A: Bigger boobs during pregnancy?

Not everyone has a ton of money to spend on expensive bras. So this is what I have been doing since I've gone from a B to a DD: thrift shops and e-bay. My boobs probably won't be this size forever so I've been picking up nursing bras at Goodwill on the 50% off day. Sometimes you find brand new ones. Also e-bay has a lot of good deals from women wanting to get rid of their huge nursing bras that they hardly worn. A lot of crazy huge sizes too!!

I am only 9 weeks pregnant and my bra bandwidth is fine and my cup size just keeps getting bigger & BIGGER. I am thinking of investing in a bra that is a little too big for me & putting bra pads in there. Is this a bad idea? I have a feeling they will be gigantic by the end of my pregnancy based on their current growth rate. Thanks ladies
