I hate bras! Since I have gotten big I can't stand to wear them..It doesn't matter how good the fit it is, they dig into my rib cage...even the bravados! And if I wear it super loose its useless to have it on. Most of the time I opt to wear a cami at home under my clothes to avoid wearing one..but sometimes you have to wear one ( esp with my big boobs blah) and the whole time its torture...Plus not wearing causing stretch marks on them but I am over caring about that...its just that with the bump and big boobs there is little room for it to fit properly at the band so it just digs in.

I can't wait for baby to get here for many reasons...but being able to fit into a bra right again is now quickly climbing to top of my list.

I had been having lots of bra issues but I finally ordered some Bravado bras last week and they have been wonderful. I love the seamless and the original one. I hate that they are not working for you. It's not much longer and then baby will be here and hopefully you'll get some relief.

I do love the bravados of everything I have tried so far..I think I might try and get the seamless since I have one original..and maybe I need to go up a size. I think I will def. love them after my bump goes down though!

I have the same exact problem! The second I get home my bra comes off... It's so uncomfortable and leaves marks under my breasts from digging in so much.

Oh the joys,of pregnancy!

Definitely try the seamless Bravado bra! It's my fave, although I think during pregnancy you're just uncomfortable regardless sometimes. But they're great after birth!

I went to a bra boutique called "Change" and they measure you and help you find the perfect fit. Otherwise I did order a maternity bra from the UK and it sucks

NEW! Racerback Demi Bra - Incredible by Victoria's Secret® - Victoria's Secret

This is by far the most comfortable bra i have ever owned. It is an underwire bra, but i dont feel it, and i HATE underwires, i usually just wear these.Wireless Bra - Body by Victoria® - Victoria's Secret

I personally love victoria secret, you can try on every single bra in the store, and know how its going to be.

I also plan on getting these, becuase they look comfy and practical when i start nursing. Although i dont know how much support it is going to give you, it is very light material.
Wrap Nursing Sleep Bra | Motherhood Maternity Nursing Wear
Lace Trimmed Nursing Sleep Bra | Motherhood Maternity Nursing Wear

At this point though, i would stop buying expensive bras, as your breast may change once again as you start breastfeeding. Mine went up 2 cups when i was BFing and stayed that way until i weaned at 9 months. I would look for some comfy sports bras or sports nursing bras, and call it a day.

Does Victoria secret have big sizes bc all I see in there are itty bitty women.

I feel your pain woman! I try not to wear one @ home bc I hate mine. I've tried a few on in the store but they sucked! I need to find somethig that is smooth all over and doesn't push the big boobs to the side or cause bumps on your shirt.

But I'd rather go to the dentist than try on bras.
HAte it!

Haha, I love victoria secret also! Its all I buy, except the sleep bras. Generally, after a few weeks of nursing, I give up on nursing bras in general and just pull my boob outa the top of the bra. After all the different brands and styles or nursing bras, I've yet to find one that actually makes ur boobs look pretty. A good bra can make u look ten pounds thinner, haha!

I have a few of those Wrap Nursing Sleep bras from Motherhood. They're pretty comfortable, but have very little support. But I just wear them at night anyway.

I used to love VS, but my boobs are too big now

I'm with you. Anytime I'm home, I'm braless. Taking off my bra and changing into comfy clothes is the first thing I do when I get home. I, too, am over caring about saggy girls.
