*Please Note: This bra measuring method becomes very unreliable at bra sizes 38D and larger.
*Important Note: this measuring system tends to become less accurate as the cup sizes go above a D. Additionally, some manufacturers name larger cup sizes differently. See "The Proper Bra Measuring Techniques for Plus-Size Women".
However their universal cup size only gives you the size for their 3 brands of bras. And none of them are nursing bras.
Here's what I want, I want it to be easy to find a nursing bra with underwire in a size that fits me. I would prefer to find a bra with underwire so I don't have a uniboob. The whole one long boob is not attractive, and I have been wearing nursing bras for over 3 years and have yet to find one that fit me well and was easy to find, also that didn't cost more than my car payment.
I always see such pretty bras in stores, but of course for nursing moms its boring, uncomfortable and not pretty! Also Why the uniboob? Do bra makers think that nursing moms don't want to feel sexy? I guess I could switch to a regular bra and yank it down to have a pretty bra that doesn't give me uniboob, but why spend that much money on a bra that will get ruined by having to constantly pull it down. I'll admit, I'm pretty cheap. I'm also short on time, and would rather just get more of what I have when I need it than spend forever tying on a ton of bras. I know my current walmart bras are not the best, but I got tired of going to store after store trying to find a bra that actually fit me and being lied to by the people who work there about my size because they want to make a sale. The cheap walmart bra may not be a perfect fit, (its a 38DD, I could stand to go up a cup size, which they don't have) but at least I'm not falling out of it while the sales associate is standing there telling me that thats my size and it fits the way it is supposed to. Really? I'm supposed to have a uniboob, with side boob and muffins on top? Really? Thats "the look"? No thanks.
And just incase this post wasn't ridiculous enough, as soon as I thought about writing this post, this video came to mind. I love beaches and the Devine Miss M, and this song just gets me giggling. =)
So have you ever found a good nursing bra for larger women? Whats your recommendation? Have you had sales people tell you you were one size just to make a sale? Tell me about it. I really want to hear from you!
