My boobs only really grew after my babies were born and I started breastfeeding, not so much during pregnancy.

I ordered bras suited for breastfeeding online after I started breastfeeding. I suggest waiting and then ordering once you know your actual size. You won’t want to have anything that doesn’t fit you right at that time.

Pre-pregnancy I was a 34 C/ 32 D. I grew to a 36 DD while pregnant and am a full 36 DDD breastfeeding. I would just buy some nursing tank tops to tide you over until your milk comes in and you can get measured for nursing bras that fit well. I got several from Target that work well

My boobs never grew during pregnancy or after. I BF/pumped til 6 weeks (long story, very complicated issues).  Everyone kept telling me they would grow but they didn’t. I was a 40/42F and stayed there.

I was a 34F pre pregnancy, then I went up to a 36F/G during pregnancy and now at 3 weeks PP I don’t even want to guess what size they are.. My 36G from pregnancy is almost an entire cup size too small now though, I’ve been wearing the seamless nursing bras from motherhood for the past 3-4 weeks. Im not buying any proper underwire nursing bras until I get settled with pumping, though.

Once my milk finally came in I swear I  had two torpedoes that I didn’t recognize haha… once we got in a good feeding rhythm things went back to just slightly larger than normal.  I would go the comfy tank routine until you know better and things settle down after the first two weeks or so.  Good luck!
