Bras.....talk to me!

Ok....So my girls are getting larger. I already needed some new bras and DH told me to buy whatever I wanted. Since I'm going to be nursing I might as well buy some AWSOME nursing bras. For some reason in the past I've had awful experiences with nursing bras and have ended up living in tanks during the entire time I nurse. I bought my last nursing bras at Motherhood, but they never fit right. Now looking at their sizing chart I realized why.....even though they measured me, they had me in the wrong cup and they don't even carry the size cup I need!

Anyway....what is the absolute BEST nursing bra in your opinon? I'm thinking about a few bravado's, but want to get some real feedback. I'm big busted....I'll need like a 36 F

I'm a 34 F and love the bravado body silk seamless nursing bras. I wear a medium on the tightest band hooks. I tried several of their other styles with and without wire, and this was the only one I like.

Re: Bras.....talk to me!

I too wondered this. I'd love a good support bra that is easy to "use" while nursing, yet will grow with me during pregnancy, and adjust to my breast size when I have milk supply before and after feeding baby. Is there such a thing?

I too have never had a good fit for a bra. Im not "large busted" in any way, but I've always gone "cheap" because honestly, I never could see myself buying expensive bras. I'd like something that won't dig into my shoulders, or any place for that matter. Something that isn't "obvious" I'm wearing a bra if I'm wearing thin shirts (like lace ones, or ones with the line across the nipple).

I hope you get some good answers. I'll be checking back! After taxes, I hope to go to a maternity store to try some on.

I have always heard to go with Bravados. Everyone swears that they are well worth the money. I only used tanks and basic bras but I wasn't able to bf DS for long. I will definitely get done nice nursing bras this time if I can so cross fully nurse for longer than a few weeks.

This is exactly what I need too! I totally understand the "cheap" route too. I've never understood how some women can pay $50 + on one bra, but since I'm so big it's hard to find ones that will fit, give me support, and still give me a little room to grow without being in this price range. kwim? I guess I'm going to have to get over that. I mean....I carry around my girls all day, so I need something that's going to make them feel and look good and if that means more money spent then oh well.

I had a Playtex wire free one that lasted me through all 3 kids. They go up to F and run a little big, I think. I'm an H and it was only a little small. It was great, supportive, good separation, and very easy to clip/unclip for easy access.

Re: Bras.....talk to me!

All I've ever used were the cheap pull on bras from WM or the actual nursing bras they carry. I would like to not have uniboob and actually have space between the girls and the baby belly this time around! lol

I'll third (fourth?) the Bravado bras, I bought 2 last time and they lasted me for years. Tragically, I finally threw them out about 3 months ago.

Re: Bras.....talk to me!

I like my Bravado silk bra, but I'm a 36 C pregnant

Target carries Bravado Basics, so I'm thinking of buying one or two to try them out.
