Target or Motherhood bra?

Nursing is going really well for us, so I need to get an actual nursing bra instead of the sleep bras that I have. Right now we cant afford a really nice one, so can anybody recommend one from target or motherhood maternity? Thanks mamas!

I buy from Walmart (2 for $12) and love them. I also buy walmarts' nursing tank tops. We don't have a target within an hour or so drive from here but i plan on getting some from there too. I know I'm not much help but just wanted to say buy one and see if you like it. It never hurts to try unless it's a $40 dent in your pocket KWIM? Just keep the tags on and try it out. If you don't like it return it and tell them it just didn't fit right or whatever.

I loved Target's and used them for years. They held up very well.

I didn't think Walmart carried nursing bras, I'll have to check them out!

Re: Target or Motherhood bra?

I had a Target bra and it didn't work well for me at all. Maybe I got the wrong fit but the bottom band rolled in the front all of the time. I've not tried Walmart's bras but I do like their nursing tanks. They're usually near the bras. I liked the Motherhood Bra I had and they sometimes have sales. I also got some from JCPenny's that I really liked and were reasonable prices. The other option that worked for me was to get a bra that had straps that could be worn regular or crossed in the back (mine were Barely There Brand from Elder Beerman) because they unsnapped in the front just like a typical nursing bra. So it is a great nursing bra but doesn't look like one.

Re: Target or Motherhood bra?

Be sure to be sized by a professional before buying ANY bra. You don't have to buy from a store just because you got sized there.

AND, even though you think you know your size, try on a few different sizes in the style you like to be sure you are getting the fit you want (both cups and band sizes). Keep an eye out for pinching around the arm pit and along the sides of the breast (to prevent mastitis) and if at first you don't succeed, try a different bra! Keep in mind that until 6-8 weeks there is still a good amount of fluctuation of the breast size during the day. And until about 3-4 months, your breasts won't be completely settled. For that reason, I suggest bras with plenty of stretch.

Thank you! I was going to measure myself, since I haven't found a store here other than VS to measure me, and I know they won't do it correctly.

Target ones are great for the price. The walmsrt ones are a great price but not very supportive if you're more than a C cup. They have more variety online though and .97 shipping so it's great to try out if you would like.
