I am not pg but also top heavy (a little bigger than you), and terrified of what pregnancy will do to my boobs!  I don’t know what I am going to do…. I usually order from Bravissimo or Bare Necessities, so thinking of just ordering bigger sizes?  It seems like it will be hard to keep up with growth though, and hard to know what size to buy.

LOL, I hope the boobs slow down a bit for you.   My cousin had the same problem.   She’s taller than you, but quite slim with a huge rack when NOT pregnant.   Then she got pregnant and her boobs were out of control, lol.    Poor girl.    

I have much smaller boobs, I have no natural tissue, but I wear a 32b with implants.  I gave up with regular bras when I was pregnant, nothing fit right because I had like, c-d sized boobs, but a 24″ ribcage >.<   I just wore sports bras, and camisoles with the built in shelf bra type thing, much more comfy.   I’m not sure if that’s an option for your size, it worked for me because I didn’t need the support, just coverage.

DO NOT keep wearing your expensive bras if they are too small for you! A) that’s uncomfortable B) it’s not doing you any favors–you KNOW that and C) because if/when your breasts return to their normal size, you want that bra to work and not be all jacked up. 

I had to buy even more expensive bras from England, but I was cheap and pretty much would wear the same bra day in and day out, knowing my size would change further into pregnancy and after birth. I grew I think 2 cup sizes and a band size, all told. But it’s different for everyone. Sigh. It kinda sucks though. I’d like my old size back too!

Oh no! I buy from bravissimo too and while I’m not pregnant… I have similar issues with being top heavy (try 28H!) I’m also terrified of what will happen to my boobs if I ever get pregnant… 




Perhaps soft cup bras are a better bet as they have (slightly) more room for varying sizes rather than underwired though I know at this kind of size, it’s uncomfortable to be without the support of underwires.








Soft cups and sports bras… maybe…?

I’m a 36g pp. It’s an up hill battle.  I know they’ll keep getting bigger,  bra extenders have been my friend.  Now that I’m in my third trimester and only have 2 bras that fit, I’m going to go get re measured and order nursing bras.  


Ladies, ebay is your friend.  I bought one or two $80+ bras before learning if you know your size, you can easily get 2-3 for that price.

Try Barenecessities.com  They have all sorts of sizes (up to 30K and 36N!!) and have 25% off sales fairly regularly!  I love the Freya brand personally.

@PatientBee:  I can’t say I have a solution, but I feel your pain.  I’m normally a 36F.  When I found out I was pregnant, I bought a bunch of bras with room to grow.  Well, I’m now not fitting in those.  They are 38GGs.  I am 27 weeks and have gained 12 lbs…I think half of that is in my boobs!  I would recommend buying a couple larger regular bras.  If you plan on nursing, Motherhood has large size nursing bras that you can buy later on and will be able to use for a while.  They also come with nursing pads so if you start leaking towards the end, you will be covered there as well.


I also highly recommend planking to combat back pain.  I plank forward and on each side everyday for 1 minute and so far my back hasn’t been bothering me at all.

@lealorali:  I’m not pregnant, but at a 36DDD hanging loose is so very uncomfortable. I really need the support of a bra. I even sleep in soft wire-free bras. They only time I’m not wearing a bra is in the shower.

OP I can’t say I have any suggestions beyond looking for larger bras on Ebay. I hope you find something that works for you, and when you do please come back and share with us large busted ladies who aren’t pregnant yet.

I’m pregnant and normally a 30G/32ff. I already sized up my band to a 34 for comfort, but luckily I have some old bras in 34f from when I was a little heavier. I’m starting to spill out of the cups, so I’m going to have to buy new bras soon. honestly I’m scared because I went up to a 36G when breastfeeding my daughter, and I only started out as a Dirty Delete, so this time starting out as a FF I can’t imagine how big they are going to get!
