Nursing bras and Clothing

Post by sgnyc65 » Thu, 21 Oct 2010 1:37 pm

Anyone know of any good stores that sell nursing bras for larger busts? Am also looking for some good nursing camisoles.

So far, I've looked at Spring Maternity, Mothercare, Mothers' Work, Egg Maternity and Mothers En Vogue, but they do not have the right sizes.

I've seen one (1!) type of nursing bras in Marks&Spencer, they should have bigger sizes.

I would also recommend M&S as their size ranges are quite large. I know the maternity stores you mentioned will sell them but as you've already discovered they don't often cater for the bigger bust size.

I've been to all of the above mentioned places including M&S and none of them had cup sizes bigger than DD, although M&S had band sizes up into the 40" range (which doesn't help me with the small frame and huge knockers :-( )
I'll be ordering mine online...

Am sure you probably have plenty of online options, but I always found figleaves.com and bravissimo good sites and managed to get a few decent nursing bras from them - figleaves even stocks underwired ones if you want to go down that route.

Hi,

I got some maternity stuff online from my little angels maternity. You may wanna try there for yr sizes or give the lady a call (Her number was on the website.) I think she may custom make some stuff for you. Not sure tho but thr is no harm in you asking her.
Good luck!

First of all, look over our fun and hip clothing lines: you can breastfeed and look great at the same time! (And you can breastfeed anywhere: in many states the law protects the right to breastfeed anywhere.) Feedback from mothers over the years has allowed us to hone our selection: mothers like clothing that is functional, comfortable, and attractive, and allows them nurse easily and discretely. :shock:

Another one here who had to shop online for nursing bras. Also went for figleaves, have ordered through the lovable site as well but not to Singapore (shouldn't be a problem though?)

Thanks for the info in this thread. I have luckily just had (within past 2 weeks) a quick 2 day trip back to the UK purely for maternity clothes... As Singapore certainly doesnt have anywhere that does larger than a size 16 it appears... Which is a shame as there are quite a few of us curvaceous ladys i see around town.

Even in the UK it seems only a few shops have a few maternity things, and almost everyone goes online for maternity these days. And most UK companies only ship to a UK address so god bless those that ship internationally.

Anyway, agree with you on Bravissimo, although they only have a couple of nursing bras, I personally was a 36FF before pregnancy and am now a 36GG... I stuck with Bravissimo underwired bras (soft moulded cup) and they are just perfect for me. For nursing bras will have to see nearer the time as I have one more UK trip pending so can buy when home...
