Should I get this bra?
 
I need a new nursing bra for my remaining 5+ months I'm going to nurse. I don't want another MOM bra, and I found this one in my difficult size of 32F, but it is $52. What do you think?

I'm a 32G, so I totally feel your pain (pun not intended!), and $52 for a bra isn't terribly expensive.

I can't tell if it is an underwire from the picture, but most LC that I know recommend staying away from underwires. It could put pressure on a milk duct, and cause mastitis.

Good luck finding a comfy, workable nursing bra. I know it was such a struggle! :hugs:

I would get it, 5 months is still a long time in bra life.

It is an underwire, but I used an underwire with my first and had no problems, plus I don't think its as big a deal once you've nursed for several months. Any problems that I've had with clogged ducts or mastitis have come in the first 4 months with no underwire.

Go for it. You gotta go with those hard-to-find sizes when you find them. And I've had more problems from being unsupported by softcup bras than from wearing underwire, so I prefer underwire myself.

Go for it! Also, Victoria's Secret makes nursing bra's now...and, I'm a 36 F cup, so what I do is buy a 38DD and take it in some...(those bra's just fit me best, even taken in)!

i've worn underwire w/ out much issue although I do get clogged ducts if I get engorged. I would do it, I wore nursing bras for 3 years and it was worth it to me to have something pretty and functional. :)
