Nursing Bra & Nursing tank Reccomendations Needed!!

I need nursing bra reccomendations for a large busomed women (36 e/f).I had relegated myself to built in shelf bra camis last time nursing because I could find anything large enough that wasn't so constrictive that it didn't give me plugged ducts.

I have heard good things about bravado's, anyone use them and the YES! bras enough to be able to compare? Looks like I could get 3 YES! bras for the price of 1 bravado.

Also, Nursing tanks. I got some from target last time and they weren't that great. Willing to try whatever is good. Any comparisons between like the Glamormom and Mimi ones??

TIA!!

Blessings,
Deidre

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my " Great Support Bra" from Motherwear. I am a 42G and really needed the support but I've never had a problem with a clogged duct from it. I have a couple of other bras I've used... I think the Bravado is the other one I have that works but I'd have to check. I don't like it as much but it does the job alright.

Re: Nursing Bra & Nursing tank Reccomendations Needed!!

postpartum size 42DD/E (was a 38 before) - I have a few that I really like:

Underwires (I must have underwires! No probs with plugged ducts with these:
Medela Seamless Underwire (underwires poke out a bit, but the fit is great!)
Melinda G T-shirt bra underwire (tend to run big)

Soft Cup:
My fave is Goddess 511

Sleep bra:
Original Bravado

Check out this website for more help:

I bought mine from

and
www.biggerbras.com

HTH!

I found the nursing tanks from Target to run very very small!!!!

Hi -
I'm a 34 DD/E and I find the bravado bras okay for the first couple of months (when my breasts are more likely to be engorged). I didn't find they were very supportive though. My favorite is the medela seamless underwire and the medela seamless softcup. I never had a problem with plugged ducts though.

I'm going to check out the website from the pp - thanks for the great thread.

Re: Nursing Bra & Nursing tank Reccomendations Needed!!

I'm a 34 DD/E/F when nursing and a huge fan of Decent Exposures un-bra which they will customize with nursing flaps that either velcro or hook/eye open. I've got two and the best one is the lycra blend. This is the bra to really hold everything in place but has very comfortable openings when nursing. I didn't like the band in the middle and cut mine out to make more of a sports bra style. I think the link is www.decentexposures.com They also make swimsuits and awesome undies. Hyena for mom. I second the Melinda G for underwire and like the Bravado ++ size but sold them to get the DEx.
