Question nursing bras question

Have you seen any that have a closure in the middle of the chest, as opposed to up by the strap?

I've been wearing some leading lady leisure bras with a crossover front that i can easily push aside, but these bras aren't very supportive. Due to physical limitations i can't use the kind that fasten up by the shoulder strap...so that doesn't leave many options.

You know, I haven't seen any... I agree that the cross-overs don't give much support. I guess you give up support for ease of feeding?

that seems to be what i'm faced with...i have about 6 of them, 2 of them being smaller and thus more supportive..the bigger ones are bad, i don't like to go out in them. It would just be nice to wear a normal bra to work.

Re: nursing bras question

I only used real nursing bras at the very beginning. So if you don't find what you're looking for, you can always wear a regular bra and just pull your breast of the cup when it's time to nurse!

Re: nursing bras question

I have seen some on www.breakoutbras.com. I do not remember which brand. They have great customer service and usually have a coupon code for an extra 10% off (plus often have items on sale).

Actually, I have one listed on FSOT that has snap-opening flaps that open from the middle. It is a Condessa Cassandra bra. It's made out of very pretty lace, too.

Re: nursing bras question

Not sure if this is what you are looking for here is a link for a center close snap bra (few years back this style was much easier to find than it is now).

Re: nursing bras question

In addition to the pull over style, I found these three on a quick search:

http://www.breakoutbras.com/product/...p/Nursing-Bras
http://www.breakoutbras.com/product/...0/Nursing-Bras
http://www.breakoutbras.com/product/...1/Nursing-Bras

If you call their customer service and let them know your size (make sure to look at their sizing charts first as their charts are different than some places), they will let you know what would be the most supportive for you.

Re: nursing bras question

I don't know what size you wear, but I have an Olga brand 34DD bra you can have FFS. It's in used condition, but has the snaps in the center and underwire support. Send me a PM if you want it.

Here's one on eBay that's black and a different size.
Mine is white, but slightly pinkish, now and well-loved.

and another listing for a lot of them:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-4-Nursing-Br...item3a672e9126

(neither listing is mine, I just thought I'd post what I found)
