    Default Bra sizes

    I am wondering if anyone knows how many bra (cup and/or band) sizes a woman is likely to go up during pregnancy?

    Default Bra sizes

    I was a DD and went to an E. I know a B cup who went to a DD. Everyone is different but I would allow 1-2 cups.

    Shortly after DD was born I went to a size I can't even explain, was 3 times the E cup I was before. However I went back to a DD quickly.

    Default Re: Bra sizes

    I'm 17 weeks and early on went from a 12DD to a 12F.. hopefully I won't go up much more! Maternity bras have a lot more hooks at the back so I've bought some already to make allowance for weight gain

    I went from 10E to 12F, but my milk didn't come in properly, so don't know if my changes were typical or not.

    Default Bra sizes

    It's so individual! I went from 10a to 12dd with first bub. Then down to 10c while breastfeeding, then I fell preg again, back up to 12dd. Breast feeding again now and I'm a 10d right now.

    this is so individual..... I'm at week 30 and so far have gone from an 8DD to an 8GG, have just ordered an 8H maternity bra, hoping it will have enough spare room that I feel confident it will last me in size, then I can get more.

    I didn't change much at all. Started as 12d. Went to a 14d. It's very individual as a pp said. Even breastfeeding now I'm a borderline 14d/dd. you might not change much at all. I haven't.

    There is no way to tell.

    I started as a DD. I finished as a DD. Same band and cup size, in 42 weeks of pregnancy, a 7kg weight gain and a 4.67kg baby. Just buy as you need them. Most maternity bras will offer some stretch in the cup anyway.
