    Default How big?

    Hi Ladies was hoping to get some advice and help this is my first pregnancy I'm 15 weeks. And my boobs are huge. I have out growth the 10b I was wear and am slightly busting a now bra 10 c... Bonds had a sale a bigw and I grabbed some maternity bras, but wondering if they actually might not fit by the time Bub is born. So my question if you were small to start with, or any one roughly how many sizes did you go up by the time Bub was born? & when do/did you swap to maternity bra? I won't just yet, but just wanting to be prepared... Any other info would be helpful. Thank you!

    I went from a b/c to a DD. Mine grew a bit during pregnancy but mainly grew when my milk came in after DD was born and stayed big for about 6 months. Just stopped BF at almost 15 months and I'm back to a B cup now everyone is different though.
    I think it's recommended to switch to wirefree bra around 20 weeks from memory?
    I wouldn't buy too many yet buy something that fits for now but wait until bub is born to see what you need no point buying in advance as you don't know what size you'll need it's impossible to know.
    Oh and I found bonds maternity bras to be a really small fit too btw! Comfy though. The target maternity crop tops 2 pack are awesome.

    I went from a 10b/c to a 12DD while pregnant to an 12E for the first couple of weeks until my milk settled then back to a DD
    @gingermille is right about bonds being a small fit plus they don't cater for big boobs. The target 2 pack crop for $25 I wear these at night time.

    The singlet tops are awesome for warm days and summer aswell

    Started at 10b/c then went to 10DD during pregnancy and to a 10 E after had Bub. I started using a maternity bra about 13 weeks with my first and haven't stopped since lol I couldn't wear a wired bra it must be so uncomfortable and it can damage milk ducts also so best for no wire or maternity while pregnant and breastfeeding.

    Ok wow so I might take these back while the sale is still on and get a bigger size, clearly the c cup is not going to cut it... Especially at the rate mine a growing... Totally underestimated how big they might get...

    @twentysomething it may also pay yo get a proper fitting. They say you should be able to have your hand flat on you boobs while pregnant inside your bra to allow them to expand after you've given birth
