Oh my goodness (m about bra sizes)

Oh my. I knew my bra was fitting snug but boy did I have the shock of my life about my new size. I was and have been wearing 36C, I thought I probably needed a 38C but no, the woman at Victoria's Secret measured me and said I should be wearing a 38D or DD. I almost passed out, because how big will I be when I'm nursing!!!!!! I bought a couple 38D's for now, but if I get any bigger I'm gonna pass out!!!! No wonder why my back hurts. I remember with DD 8yrs ago prepreg I was 32B and afterwards I was 34-36C. So lets just hope 38D is where I will stay, I'd be happy to go down but not up anymore!! I did buy some cute capri's from Target, and a dress & shorts from Motherhood all a size L which I have some room to grow. Today was just an overall shock about my new sizes!!!

LOL, you're blossoming, Janel! I bet your hubby is enjoying your new size, anyway! I didn't change size much the 2nd time around at all! I like bras from www.decentexposures.com They are very comfortable, and easy to use for nursing! Sue

I didn't increase too much in size till I started nursing. I was barely a B, and I went up to busting out of a C. Of course, nursing is done and now they just hang there back at the original size. I'm so disguested with them! LOL! So, enjoy them while you can! ; ) Buy one nursing bra now and wait till you are nursing to buy the rest. I bought mine when I was pg, and followed the guidlines given, but they were too small!

Cassie-who is in favor of surgery to snip away all that excess skin from nursing! ; )

Isn't it funny? I went from a 38C to a 38DD then back down to a 38D once nursing was established. However, when Valentine's day came around, I'd forgotten about the fact that my non-nursing bras were all too small. I had decided to put on some fancy lingerie to surprise DH - I was so bummed when I realized my lacy black push-up bra was TOO small! LOL! I told DH to just pretend I was wearing one under my top, when instead I was wearing my ugly white Medela.
