    My experience is more like Sassypant's: I started as a 34B, barely, before pregnancy. I was a 38B by the end of pregnancy, and I have no idea what I was for the first two months of breastfeeding, but I was wearing a Large in nursing bras. Then, I was a 36 D for a while, and by 8 months, I was a 34DD. I'm still a 34DD, and DS is almost 13 months. I have a feeling I'll be at this size for a while.

    As far as tops, I bought new ones that are looser. None of my tops fit, so it seemed like the right solution. I found a style that I liked and got it in several colors. I should say, though, that I don't worry too much about what I wear or what's in style. I just like to be comfortable, even in my work clothes.

    i went from a 34G before pregnancy to H at birth to now overflowing my K cups. i love the royce bras (good fitting guide here http://www.royce-lingerie.co.uk/fitting-guide), hated the goddess and anitas. hoping that i can kick some of this chocolate habit i have and get back down to fitting in my Ks while EBF my 9 month old ... having dealt with oversized boobs my whole life, and all the associated clothing problems, i don't think it's a reason to switch to formula. we should make clothes that fit our bodies, not the other way around.

    I did find some tops yesterday that are very pretty and stylish but there is just no hiding my boobs. Love the bras I bought on sunday. Very comfortable and pretty. I always like to show some cleavage which is the style now, but I am gushing out the top. I did wear a scarf last nite to try to be somewhat modest, but still got more attention than I am used to. I am not as comfortable BF in public as I was at a smaller cup size, but I don't want to stay home. Not sure what I will do for a bathing suit this year. Probably nothing. My figure is so out of proportion. I just can't imagine that all that boob flesh will ever shrink back to a C cup. It seems that it did for most oof you moms, so I guess it will for me too. I just love to BF and wouldn't change a thing. If I ever have another baby, I will do it again...Thanks

    I haven't been a DD since high school. Pre-pregnancy I was a 32F, nursing I am typically a G/H cup. Having an out of proportion body is my life. You just have to adjust your wardrobe. If you don't want attention, then stick to higher necklines. I never wear tops that show cleavage, because I look like a walking boob in them. BTW You can find swim suits that will work, just expect to spend more time finding one.

    I try to go with higher necklines, but not really high necklines (no turtlenecks), or I look like I have giant, shelf-like mono-boob. Gotta show some neck, at least!

    you can find swim suits but don't expect to spend less then 50 dollars for one. You won't find one at Walmart. You will have to go to other stores. I find the most for my size chest at Fashion Bug, but also My Intimacy in NYC sells larger chest size suits, and a few other stores. You will have to get the built in bra. lol haha Yeah....or again you can make them, ELD has a swim suit pattern, that is for nursing, I plan on trying to make it.
