Anyone else having trouble finding comfortable bras that fit. My boobs have gotten bigger and i think I am about a 38 DD now. Even the 2xl sports bras don't seem to cover everything or be very supportive. and i use to wear underwires all the time but don't like to now.

Any suggestions?

I struggled with bras majorly when pregnant last time. I finally found one that was wireless and supported. I live them even though they are granny looking...but of course they are discontinued now...anyway go wireless and get bra extenders! They will be your best friend!

Btw you can find the one im speaking of online...just google bali wireless bra 3228. You have to search around for your size. I use the extenders and i find i can even pull it aside enough to nurse. My boobs stay up unlike normal wireless bras...bur everyone is different.some people recommend just gping to nursing bras but most of them let me droop. Im going to try out some of the higher quality ones this time.....i hate bra shopping because nothing ever fits right...

I hate bras anyway, but so far I haven't had much trouble. I agree to look into the nursing bras, though.

Nursing bras is what I just switched to. WAY more comfortable. Now I'm not nearly as large as you are but I was a D when I delivered DD and nursing bras were a life saver. Supportive and comfy (there's nothing sexy about them but who cares haha)

sometimes i'll wear a night time nursing bra, yes during the day lol. hey if i'm not going anywhere who cares?! it's just more comfy and roomier than a sports bra. i think i bought a two pack at walmart or target for like 10-15 bucks maybe. but i'm a busty gal as well..sometimes going up a cup or band size helps too :-)

I am busting out of my bras but I continue to wear my real bras when going out or to work because they are supportive. When I am home, I wear bigger, comfier ones that make my boobs look bad. LOL
