    One more tip is that after you give birth your ribcage will gradully return to normal size, while if you are breastfeeding your cup size will go up. You might end up back at 36 or 38 but with a larger cup size. (The woman at YES bras is good at estimating future sizes.) So don't stock up on too many 42s. With my first baby I went from pre-pregnant 34DD to breastfeeding 34G!

    I found that the nursing bras that fitted me best were too tight on the ribs for a week or two after delivery, so those bra extenders come in useful at that time too.

    Where is Yes bras and Linea? It would be interesting for me to know which size I will have in the end. Now (end of 3 month) up from 36 a/b to 36 c, so if there is a woman which can help to choose a good size I would be very thankful.

    Hope to hear from you!

    sanny07, in figleaves, there is a page that teaches you how to measure your bra size. for your reference, i was a 36C pre-pregancy. gone up to 36D while pregnant (gradually). when i was bfeeding, gone up to 36DD. after 1 yr of bfeeding, gone to 34DD. now that i have weaned, i'm a 34C.
