When you had to buy new bras did you go up in cup size, band size or both? Thanks!

With my first pregnancy I actually went to a place that sold bra's and fully measured you. I went from a 34C to a 34DD so I just went up cup sizes. Everyone is different though. Just get a bunch of different sizes and see what you feel comfortable in. Also to warn you once your breastmilk comes in you're going to get bigger so don't put a lot into bras for pregnancy.

Both for me too. I went from 32B to a 34D when I was preg with my DS. At the end I actually had a 36C bra because it was more comfortable and helped with my heartburn. LOL.
Now I'm in a 34C or 34D depending on brand. I'm scared of what is going to happen this time around. I do know I will probably need fake ones after this

At a certain point I just switched to sports bras and that worked for nursing too.

Just cup size for me. In first couple of weeks after my babies are born, I just wear a nursing sleep bra (I got mine at Motherhood Maternity). They are just way more comfortable at the beginning when my milk is just coming in.

Both, I think. Up one band size, and 1-2 cup sizes.

Both increase. Cup sizes go up 2 sizes from what you are now. And band increases dependin upon how much and where you carry the additional weight. I went from a 36D to a 38 DDD (ugh!)

Ditto to the word! I loved being pregnant since I actually had cleavage! I'm looking forward to bellydancing with PG breasts- I won't need to stuff (or sometimes double stuff!) my bras any more!

I went from a 38C last time to a 42E. When I had my first, I went from a B cup to a D by the time I delivered and then back to a C or D, depending on the bra, after I was done nursing her.

I started as a DD and went up to an E during pregnancy and then up to an F when my milk came in, I went up one band size as well. It's so hard to say though b/c everyone is so different!

I was up a couple of cup sizes, probably 3 while nursing. I didn't go up a band size, though. I lost quite a bit of weight before I got pregnant this time and shrank a couple cup sizes, so I'm happy I held onto the larger bras because they will fit me throughout pregnancy and nursing!
