Best Places to Find Nursing Bras in Larger Sizes.

10 Amazing Places to Shop of Nursing Bras in Larger Sizes (and smaller sizes too.)

Quite a few people have asked me where they can find large bras – nursing, maternity and just big in general.

Being a lady of ample proportions, I thought that was a good thing to figure out, so I asked you guys where you find the big boulder holders and here are your suggestions:

(Keep in mind that not all of the models are wearing the large bras so don’t let the pictures throw you. Also, Kirsten made a good point below in the comments saying, “Please note that there is a mix of sizing standards for these brands. Some are using US cup sizing (like Bravado) and other are using UK sizing (like HotMilk). This matters because a ‘G’ cup in US sizing is different than a ‘G’ cup in UK sizing. This can be frustrating because if you order from Bravado and need a UK size H cup you actually need to order an ‘K’ cup size for US sizing.” So make sure you check the measurements before you order.)

Nordstroms

By far the most recommended place to buy large bras was Nordstroms. Not only do they have a great selection, they will actually convert your regular bras into nursing bras. Plus, they have bra styles that run up to JJ. Can I say ‘bras’ one more time? Bras!!!

Bravado

Bravado is definitely a brand I would recommend for exceptional nursing bras. They run up to size L/M and you can find them on their site or on places like Amazon.

Cake Lingerie

I love how pretty Cake Lingerie’s stuff is and they go up to size 40M.

Hotmilk

Hotmilk has some really beautiful lingerie along with nice, comfy day-to-day bras. They run up to an H cup.

Anita

Anita is known for making really comfortable bras for larger sizes so it makes sense that this would apply to their nursing bras as well.

 

elomi

The elomi brand proves that there’s no reason that plus size lingerie can’t be gorgeous. You can search their site to find a store near you but I found a nice selection here on Nordstrom’s.

bare necessities

The folks at bare necessities have a great selection of larger sizes in many brands. They have nursing bras that go all the way up to 52H

Leading Lady

Leading Lady has a great selection of larger bras including this $24 bra that is touted as “the most comfortable bra in America” AND it fits up to 52H (it would make an amazing sleep bra – jogging not so much.)

Motherhood Maternity

Not only does this Canadian brand have fairly reasonable prices, their bras go up to size 46F

Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant carries nursing bras up to 46DD, and regular bras up to F, G & H sizes


So lock and load those fantastic knockers and take over the world!

  • As a 30H living in Australia usually I buy bras online from the UK – the Bravissimo and Brastop sites have a fantastic range of brands that includes maternity/nursing, and start at a 28 back size. My struggle now is that I want to get fitted in person for a nursing bra (4 weeks from due), but that limits my selection basically to Panache simply because the distributor for Australia happens to be in my city and sells/fits at their warehouse – thank goodness for that at least. After years of crap experiences being fitted at department stores I don’t trust them so much and once I’ve got my size right again I’ll go back to the online shopping from UK sites.

  • I live close to a brick and mortar that sells most of the bra brands listed above but one amazing service they offer is online fittings…people swear by them! You can find the Pittsburgh based store at http://www.mothersboutique.com

    I’m not affiliated with the store, I’ve just had great success with them…at 34-36J, a nice bra is hard to come by…I want to share this find with anyone who needs it!!

  • Same issue as Deborah – Motherhood is no help if you are a band size 32 and larger than a DD… Plus they will consistently try to convince you that you are a 36DD when in fact I am a 32H/I. It is not the same. It does not fit the same.

    I have had a little luck on Zulily.com. Nordstrom is eonderful as they are the only brick and mortar that carries larger than a DDD in smaller than a 34 – but they are pretty pricey. I also ordered from BareNecessities.com and my favorite bra is a maternity Anita: http://www.barenecessities.com/anita-stretch-microfiber-nursing-bra-5068product.htm?pfid=Anita5068&search=32H
    Super breathable, comfortable and holds me up! Not exactly sexy… but my husband is understanding of my struggle 🙂

  • Those are all great suggestions for someone who needs both a large cup size and a large band size, but not everyone needs a bra that’s large in both measurements. A lot of brands, including the ones you mentioned above, don’t sell large cup sizes in anything smaller than a 32 or a 34 band. I wear a 30G normally and went as high as a 30J while exclusively breastfeeding. Finding bras was a huge pain. Nordstrom’s is the only physical store I’ve had any luck with – other department stores and maternity stores either have nothing or try to convince me I’ll fit into something that isn’t my size. Online, I’ve had good luck with Breakout Bras (http://www.breakoutbras.com/). They have a good return policy, which helps a lot.

    As far as brands go, Panache is great. I love this bra: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/panache-sophie-5821-wireless-nursing-bra-dd-cup-up/3237490?origin=category-personalizedsort&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=IVORY+%2F+PINK&resultback=0

    Freya also has nice stuff, although they’re a bit pricier. The Bravado nursing tanks work very well. The size range doesn’t actually include my size, but their bands are snug enough and the other material stretchy enough that they work.

    I’ve had absolutely no luck with anything sized small/medium/large. Small has the right band size but the cups don’t fit my boobs, and large has the right cup size, but the band is too big so my boobs fall out the bottom. I know a lot of people who love all those sleep bras and sports bra type things that are sized that way, but I’ve never found one I can wear.

  • Please note that there is a mix of sizing standards for these brands. Some are using US cup sizing (like Bravado) and other are using UK sizing (like HotMilk). This matters because a ‘G’ cup in US sizing is different than a ‘G’ cup in UK sizing. This can be frustrating because if you order from Bravado and need a UK size H cup you actually need to order an ‘K’ cup size for US sizing.
