Need help with Bravado nursing tank size
I would like to order a Bravado nursing tank, in order to compare it to Target's Gilligan and O'Malley tanks. I was a 34A/36A pre-pregnancy, and I'm now 34 weeks along and my 36B underwire bras are just getting to feel too small. The Bravado BodySilk size Medium nursing bra is a very comfy fit at this point.
In the Bravado essential nursing tank, do you recommend I order a 36 B/C or a 38 B/C? After I have the baby, won't my rib cage (band size) gradually shrink back down a little, even though my cup size might stay the same or increase? I want to make sure the band size is big enough to be comfortable and not too tight, but I don't want it falling off of me or have the tank not be supportive enough if it's too big on top. Any tips on the sizing for these Bravado tanks would be greatly appreciated!
I was a 36B pre-pregnancy and jumped to about a 36D after having dd because of nursing....I never offically got measured after I had dd...but the 36D nursing bras where what fit me....
I ordered the 36D/E tank and it was really a bit too big....it worked...but I think the size smaller would have been better......
I think because it is stretchy and made from bamboo there is no shrinkage at all.......and you're right....after you give birth your rib cage and waist should go back down.....
So I guess I'd order the smaller size.......but your cup size may go up if you're planning to nurse...
Hopefully so other ladies will respond too!!
Been wearing them for almost 3 years through BFing 2 kids and my pregnancy. I would go with the smaller. They have a great amount of stretch and cover a wider size range than they say!
Even when my rib measurement went to a 36 in pregnancy, my 34 B/Cs worked really well. Eventually I will end up down at a 32 again... but that probably won't be until 6-12 mo pp. I was in a 34 the day after giving birth even though the 36's were starting to get tight.
Have a nice day!
Thank you for the advice! I ordered the smaller size, so we'll see how that works out.
