I’m hoping to pick your brains for recommendations for a nursing bra. When I first found out I was pregnant, my bra size was 36 Dirty Delete. So, you can imagine that once I’m nursing, I’m going to need all the support I can get.
1. I’d like an around-the-house bra that’s comfortable but also very supportive.
2. I’d like an out-of-the-house bra that’s comfortable but that gives me good support and shape. For this, I’m open to an underwire.
3. I’d like a sleeping bra that the girls won’t fall out of when I roll over.

I would check into the following brands: Anita, Elomi, Bravado.
I’ve heard good things about Anita but their cup size didn’t go high enough for me. Elomi works for me but there are only two options so if you want more choices, it may not be your favorite. Bravado has several options but only one of their bras goes up to a J/K cup and doesn’t keep you separated with a lot of support so if that is the cup range you end up needing (unlikely since that is such a huge jump from a Dirty Delete but everyone is different), it may not be a good fit for you. I was an I cup pre-pregnancy and while nursing I am a J/K depending on full of milk/not full of milk.
I never bought any sleeping bras because I never really leaked much so I didn’t need one.

I haven’t needed a nursing bra yet (not pregnant / don’t have kids yet) but I’m a 36F and have ordered some things from Bravissimo and I’ve seen in their catalogs that they have nursing bras.
The whole line of bras/clothes/bathing suits/etc is all specifically designed for larger breasts (I don’t think they carry anything below a DD) so they might be a good place to check out.

I was a 32Dirty Delete pre-pregnancy, and am now a 34G.
Around the house and for sleeping, I wear a size medium Medela nursing bra. (No underwire, sports-bra type style, it’s what my lactation consultant recommended)
For work and other times when people actually see me, all my bras are Anita brand and I love them.

I am a 38 DDD and due in late Dec, I am nervous of how big they will grow
