    Default Plus size breastfeeding clothes...

    Bub is due in just over 8wks - EPPP!!!

    I really need to get some new clothes for post birth - Im roughly a size 22 (stayed the same size during pregnancy just got a bit bigger in the waist).

    Pants/skirts I can just get normal plus sized clothes but tops wise I have nothing suitable that is comfortable, casual and works with BF.

    My current wardrobe is all corporate workwork, going out clothes or casual trackies/t.shirts - nothing of which is suitable for BF in public.

    Any one know any good online shops?

    I like just loose tops (I am an 18-20) and I like K-Mart and big W
    Other then that maybe eBay? They might be secondhand but they are generally in good condition?

    Im about the same size and got some breast feeding tops from bumpbabyandbyond. They also have a store in Melbourne. The tops were fairly plain though.

    I also got a top from plusmaternity (or was it maternityplus??) it was the smallest size but was still fairly big.

    Also have 2 tops from peppermint, they were fairly expensive ($50 odd I think) and weren't quite big enough but were ok.

    Default Plus size breastfeeding clothes...

    I'd focus on layering, autograph do some nice simple 3/4 sleeve tops and singlets then I just layer a loose top or a top with buttons over it. I'm only a 14-16 on top (depending how big the boob religion is) so its not to hard for me to find tops IRL but a lot of tops these days seem to have restrictive waists so you can't lift up!

    Eta I did find the lift up pull down combo that goes with layering a bit tricky to master with bigger boobs though (I'm a F-G cup size).

    I just tend to later -- where a singlet that I can pull down, & a floaty top that I can pull up, so I can feed without exposing my tummy or anything, & the floaty top kind of bunches up discretely over my boob giving baby easy access with minimal exposure

    I tried "actual" feeding tops in the beginning, but the holes designed to expose your boobs were too small for my massive boobs & I couldn't feed properly through them!

    I found this too, total waste of money if your boobs are any bigger than a D!

    cool - that makes sense. I have lots of singlets already - I will get a few loose/cool tops to go over...
