This was my biggest fear about getting a dress. I was a 30-32 F/G depending on the bra and there is no way in HELL you’ll ever find a strapless bra in that size. And bridal stores wont sew in cups at that size. It was one of the things that pushed me to have a breast reduction a few weeks ago. Once all the swelling is gone down I’ll probably be a 32 D/DD. At this point the twins are perky enough that they wouldn’t need much support, but we’ll see how things are once they’re healed. If you live in the US I’ve heard Nordstrom’s has a really good selection of lingerie, so they might have something there. Or try out specialty lingerie stores, as in not Victoria’s Secret that only sells bras to ‘average’ women, but one that caters to ladies of all sizes from a 30AA to a 42K kind of thing. They might be able to offer something.

@mssmiley:  Thanks! It definitely was a huge relief! About 4-5 days post op (once most of the pain was gone) FI said he noticed a HUGE difference in my posture. My back hardly hurts at all anymore. I used to get migraines 2-3 times a week and have headaches pretty much every day by the end of the day. Since my surgery 6 weeks ago, I’ve had 2 migraines (one brought on by trying to do too much and spending too much time in the hot sun too soon after surgery), my back hardly hurts and I don’t get headaches nearly as often. Of course the big test will be when I go back to work next week, which will determine if my headaches/migraines etc were brought on by stress or not. My surgeon also recommended that about 2 months post op I start doing some physio to help with my back, once things have healed enough for me to do more strenuous physical activity.

I’m not sure what Nordstrom’s return policy is, but could you not buy a few different bras, try them on and return them if they don’t fit, until you find the perfect one?
