Ok so I have a couple questions.......

Where oh where do you find good supportive bras? I have tried Walmart-which is joke-and a couple other stores, but my problem is this....I have always had a pretty big cup size. Usually I wear a DD depending on the brand. But my issue (now that they are getting bigger than that) is finding one that fits, feels comfortable, and is in a store that I can try on. Do I seriously need to have them made for me or what-that is what I am starting to feel like. It's depressing to not find one that fits.

My other question is about breast pumps...I don't want to rent one because I have this thing about germs no matter how well it has been sterilized, I don't want to use it. It's only on certain things, though, like swimsuits, underwear, bras, breast pumps, (things that can secrete bodily fluids) so I want to get my own...which one have you heard is the best one or most comfortable one?

no clue about supportive bras... ive always had a hard time finding them small enough..

BUT as for breastpumps go Medela brand!! AND i highly recomend getting a double pump.. if you dont you will probably just regret it later.. They can be kinda pricey, but worth it! Youll end up spending just as much trying to find a cheaper one that works, and then probably end up with a double Medela anyhow...

I have heard Victorias Secret is good at having big bras that are very supportive. Im an average C so dont have any actual idea LOL.

and I have always heard Medela is the best!!!

oh and if you do rent a pump, you get a brand new sterilized in a bag suction and bottles, etc.. so the stuff that touches your boobs, has NEVER touched any one elses LOL.

Im not sure on the bras hun. i have an outlet mall by me and i go to the Maiden Form store. they have a lot of stuff.

For pumps, the Madella "pump and style" is a double pump, or you can google Hollister brand. They are both kinda pricy but so worth it. I agree with Em go with a double. otherwise youll be pumping one side, and leaking out the other side and letting your precious cargo go to waste.

MEDELA!!!

I am pumping right now actually I doesn't hurt with this pump and you get more milk out faster. I highly recommend not cheaping out on the pump. I had a cheap one at first and I regret it.

Not only do I recommend a double pump, but I also recommend ELECTRIC rather than manual! Honestly, I don't care how strong your arms are, you get a MUCH better suction with an electric. I actually had my milk supply drop with the manual and I was only getting a couple ounces even though I was so full it hurt.


I got my electric pump from WIC, so I don't know how much it cost, but I know my sister got a Medela (very much like the one I have) for $300.

BUT, spending $300 on a good pump so you don't lose your milk and have to switch to formula is a good investment. Formula will cost MUCH more than that over the course of time!
