Favorite QUALITY nursing bra?

Ok, I've been BF'ing for 9 months now. Wearing cheap, flimsy cotton bras. I'd REALLY like a better fitting, more supportive bra now. Any suggestions? I looked at the hotMilk ones, pretty, but not exactly what I'm looking for. I found two at Motherhood, but they just feel so cheap. I miss VS bras! Thanks ladies.

Breakoutbras.com has a great selection. If you're on the larger side, I totally recommend the Anita bras--SO comfy!

I agree 100% with Anita bras. The underwires are even comfy. Is there a store near you that you could go to to try on bras? I checked one out and tried out 20 or so bras to find the most comfortable one.

Many mommy boutique stores do. That was where I tried them on.

I was able to find a couple of stores that carried them near me by googling Anita nursing bras and my city. One was a boutique, and one was a lactation store affiliated with one of the hospitals.

You can get the Anita 5035 on Amazon for a great price, and Amazon has a very easy return policy. They have free shipping to you and pay for shipping back to them should you need to return it. I've returned something to them once, a different style Anita and I was amazed at how easy it was and how quickly they refunded me.

I love the Bravado Bliss. It comes in larger sizes and holds up extremely well to washing. My one Motherhood bra was so scratchy and uncomfortable! My Medelas all fell apart after a few washes. Hotmilk bras are too $$!

I agree! I found two at Motherhood but they felt so scratchy and CHEAP so I didn't buy them.

Breakout bras here too But I bought the Freya nursing bras cause they are the only ones that came in a 30 band when I was buying them. Freya is a fantastic, quality brand.
