I need nursing bra suggestions
I know its probably not a good idea but I am going to order a bra online. The closest store is over an hour drive away so thats not happening. I would thoughts on great tips on a nursing bra, I have 2 from motherhood and hate them. I need underwire and these are not and they give a uniboob :giggle: I would prefer not to spend a fortune, maybe under $40.

I was a huge fan of Bravado. I was a pre-preggo A the first time and a pre-preggo C the second time. I have friends that were bigger though and they didn't like the Bravado for bigger sizes. 06-09-2008 08:40 AM

I would recommend a size larger in the cups than you usually wear and the diameter too. I usually wear 34C, I wear a 36 D in nursing bra. AND NO UNDERWIRE!

I love my Medela nursing bras. They don't have underwire, but they are still very supportive and super comfy.

My favorite this time around came from Target. They're not underwire but they are very supportive and a little sexier than others I've had. :blush:
*But this one didn't work well for the initial "milk's just in" time period...great after the first week or so though.

Medela makes an underwire model that's under $40, I believe. Underwire gets a bad rap sometimes, I've never had a problem with it but I've always made sure my bras were properly fitted. Soft cup bras just don't look as good under clothes!

Re: I need nursing bra suggestions
The bras I love are Bravado. My favorite is $45 and my second favorite is $35. Neither one of them have underwire, which I know you said you wanted but I still wanted to suggest them because these bras cover several different band and cup sizes per size of bra. I also used to love underwire and thought I needed it until I found these bras. I have gigantic breasts when my milk comes in and for at least six months and I adore these bras. Right now I have the body silk seamless and no uniboob, it's nice. I also have only a D cup right now due to pregnancy and it still fits and it's very comfortable. I think it's worth it because it covers several sizes so you won't have to buy several different bras over your breastfeeding realationship. Good luck!

Mine came from Target and you can order them online. The brand is Gilligan & O'Malley and there are several styles. They also make nursing tanks that are super comfy and you can layer them under things. The bras I really loved were the cotton ones because they were supportive, easy to care for, and fit a pretty wide cup range. They are about 10-14 dollars each.
