favorite nursing bra

I read through the thread on favorite nursing tanks, but I really need a good nursing bra. With dd1 and 2 i used bras from walmart. I dont really like them and I would like to get better ones this time around. In the past I've always had to worry about the breastpad circle showing through. I hate that, lol.

Whats your favorite? If it makes a difference I have aways been about a 36 b/c while nursing. Oh and I wouldn't be opposed to someone pming me with one for sale in that size, or sending me a link to where I can find your favs on sale.

ok, so i just measured myself and according to bravado and hotmilk i should be wearing a 38b, no wonder all my old bras are so uncomfortable, the biggest is a 36b, now im getting desperate, lol.

Re: favorite nursing bra

I had hotMilk and Target bras last time and the hotMilk bras had zero support. They were great postpartum when you want light support with no underwire, but they wore out super fast. I'm talking at 8 weeks seams were coming out. I was a 36 E and had Mastitis twice while using them. As soon as that cleared up I got the underwire Gillian O Malley nursing bras from Target and they were awesome. I just wish they were lined.

Subbing....but also wanted to add...what about big busted mamas? Ay favorites for us? I think iim around a 40/42 dd (that's an e right?) I have a sports bra type from motherhood that I wear EVERY day. Just the one. I have another lace one from motherhood but its so uncomfortable with the underwire and all.

I'm looking for one with wide straps and some light padding (I don't really care for the thin as a shirt kind. I need a tiny bit of padding to push them up a wee bit) plus my nipples always show through those tiny thin ones...anything? Also, I live in a Podunk litle town so whatever I buy I will have to guesstimate size on...I mean I can measure myself, but do those brands run true to size?
