I am having the same issues right now with finding a few decent nursing bras with great support and not cost an arm and a leg. I've been looking online for days and simply can't decide.

Ok now call me silly, but some bra sizing is different than others. Right now I am a 40D/40DD. If I go 1 cup size up b/c I will need to once my milk comes in.... would I get a 40E? That just seems so big to me.

LOL! I really have obscene porno boobs- I'm a 30FF.

I cannot bra shop in a normal store at all. Snd the ones I do buy (at a specialty store) cost so much- from 90-170$

I'm also planning to make my own nursing bras- b/c I've never heard of nursing bras with small enough band sizes but with huge cups. For those without sewing skills an alterationist could do it.

no necessarily... I was a 40D as a senior in HS. Before I got pg with Courtney I was up to 40DD. Now during and after nursing two children I've never been more than a 40DDD. It's barely changed at all.

Ya no increase at ALL! If she's already 30FF, what the heck size is up from that? That is my point! Even if it's one cup size.... that's an increase when she's already having an issue with finding bras. I was a 34C in high school.... now I am a 40DD.... I haven't BFed a baby in 5yrs.
