I have tank tops from Target with built in bra that unsnaps for feeding time... I need to buy a few more actually. My "girls" (lol love that by the way me and my mom call them "our girls" too, lol).
My breast size has increased a lot as well I went from C36 before pregnancy and now I'm D40 and it's very uncomfortable... I remember when I was a teen and wished my boobs were bigger... LOL, guess I got my wish, hahahahahaha!!!

If you need a larger size Motherhood doesn't really carry them. I bought the largest size sports bra from there per the sales reps suggestion pre-birth. Well now I'm up to a 36H and that thing is a joke.
I have to order online now. Highly recommend breakoutbras store breakoutbras.stores.yahoo.net/matern it ybras.html for the larger endowed among us. I haven't tried any of the sports bras yet, but the other ones I've ordered fit great. I usually do a strong support normal bra and a tank.
Of course I'm also just starting to get serious about losing the rest of this baby weight so might have to order something new myself.
I know this post is kind of old, but I'll throw in my 2c--Moving Comfort is a great brand of sports bras, and they do carry the larger sizes. I found the Maia model in a sports specialty shop awhile back before I was pregnant and LOVED it--SO supportive! (I was a big girl even before nursing--now it's just ridiculous! LOL) You can also find them at movingcomfort.com. They're a little pricy, but worth it if you're large and need support. Plus, they're high quality and last a long time. I've had the first one that I bought for at least 2-3 years now and it's still just fine!
I bought 'Champion' sports bra in thier largest size and though its a bit tight, I only wear it while running and bring a nursing bra to change into right away afterward. I find this really works and you don't have to buy another specialty bra. I just checked their website and the bras are on sale right now for $19.99! www.championusa.com/Champion/Default .a spx
I had the same problem with pain the first time I tried running after giving birth. I also started using two sports bras, and it makes a world of difference! I don't have anything fancy, just some cheap ones from wal-mart, but when doubled up, it's quite comfortable :)
i'm naturelly a 32DD-- while nursing and an H-- yeah... we have to import them for europe! lol! anyway, i would actually tell you to go to a sports store if you have the money and get fitted and get a really good sports if you are that big- it will help alot, if you are planning on nursing for a while it will be worth the money. if you are broke or not planning on nursing more then a few weeks- i'd say wear a sports bra and a tank with a bra top-- i do that and it works ok. good luck!

I do my walking or running right after LO goes to bed for the night, when my supply is at its lowest. I also got this tip from my OB -- wear two sports bras. I am 38D while lactating and the two bras really help me stay comfortable.
I'll second the motherhood.com for sports bras. I'd also like to suggest to nurse and lighten the girls up before you run/walk. Nursing is the only time I have anything on top to flaunt and I have a much harder time when running when I'm full.
Hi, My baby is now 6 months old and I still have about 15 more pounds to lose. I haven't been doing any cardio, since 'the girls' are much bigger than they were before the pregnancy (36DD) and it's fairly painful to do anything aerobic. Does anyone have suggestions for good sports bras? I'd like to be able to start jogging or running soon...
