Red face Hampton Roads-ish mamas - Nursing bra help?

Hi ladies,

I desperately need maternity/nursing bras. My normal bras are now cutting me in half and I am falling out the top of them. Problem is that I have only run into decent maternity bras at a couple of department stores and I really need a fitting. I've tried on tons and can never find a really good fit.

Anyone have a recommendation of a lingerie store here that does fittings (good ones, not the VS random guess stuff) and carries nursing bras? I am ok with spending a decent amount of money for a good bra in a good fit, odds are good I will live in these for the next couple of years.

Help?

Nordstrom at the McArthur mall has a decent selection (says my friend who previously owned a high-end lingerie store in Coronado)

I found that Nordies selection is really good but got frustrated because the sizing is all over the place, even in the same brand. I spent about an hour there last week and left with nothing. I really need to be sized, I think, and to talk to someone who knows how sizing runs for each brand.

Kick me if I am wrong, but they did a great job at motherhood maternity when I was preggo with my second.

I tried here at Pat. Hen. mall and the lady was asking what size I normally wore and just handing me bras in similar sizes. Nothing fit right. I really need to be remeasured (and I always manage to mess it up when I try it myself.) If I could just get my measurements somewhere, I could at least give Nordies' selection a fair go. I need a starting point, does that make sense, if nothing else?

Not as far as I know. I couldn't even find help from someone dedicated to the dept.
