favorite pregnancy/nursing bra?

i haven't been pg or nursing in quite awhile, and my boobs are becoming unmanagable i guess 8 weeks is when they start growing out of control and will no longer be contained by my regular bras. i'm regularly about a 36D but i think i got as big as 38F or G with my last pregnancy? anyway, i need to get some nursing bras. what's your favorite nursing bra? i've heard bravado is a good brand. i know i need to go try some on, but wanted to know what's remained your fav (sometimes they feel so good in the store but aren't that way at home ).
TIA!

Bumping this because I need suggestions too.
I have a couple Medela bras(2) floating around somewhere in my house. Hoping to find them when I prep my room for baby.
Wouldn't say I loved them, but they did the job. I have used many brands over the years, but my youngest will be almost five when our new little one arrives.
Any tips?

Re: favorite pregnancy/nursing bra?

I've been nursing for 3 years now and I'm STILL searching for a nursing bra that I love..........

I've tried Bravado, La Leche League, Playtex, Leading Lady, etc......

I am only 6 weeks into nursing, and I HATE every bra I have so far. So, I feel your pain!!!

I actually just bought a bravado bra and so far so good. It is really comfy and supportive without feeling too tight. We will see how it holds up. I dont really care for the ones I got from motherhood.

Hot milk! I tried a bunch of bras, but hot milk bras have been the best so far. A bit pricy, but worth it IMO. I bought on a sale (zulily or something) I found my meleda bra not supportive enough. I'm a 36DD nursing...

My fave is the Bravado Bliss, super comfy and supportive. I also have a Hotmilk that is really pretty, but not very comfortable to wear all day. I have a bunch of playtex ones that I wear at home as well, which are comfy, but hideous and unflattering

I'm a 38F while nursing too and I had so much trouble with DD1 finding a good supportive nursing bra. I've found one that I love and will never switch. Elomi bras are so awesome that I don't even care about the priciness of them. I buy them from breakoutbras.com.
