Talking Underwire nursing bras

I have never bought one, but really want to this time around. I just never feel supported enough by a non-underwire after it's been washed a couple of times. Any recommendations? Where did you buy them? I need a "full-figure" bra, as my nursing cup size is usually an H.

Re: Underwire nursing bras

I always wear an underwire nursing bra. I've heard they are not very good to wear because they cause clogged milk ducts but I've never had a problem.

I got mine at Motherhood Maternity. I think they are only like $12.

Yeah, I was paranoid with my first two kids, but after never feeling very supported (even with as close as you can get to body armor in a softcup bra--Goddess nursing bras), I'm done with soft cups.

Oh, and therein lies the problem. Unless something has changed, MM doesn't carry my size.

Re: Underwire nursing bras

I was also paranoid the first time around..lol. By the end of our nursing relationship though I was wearing underwire.

This time around I wore them from the beginning. I got a couple of the Motherhood ones and I also go a Medela one. Gap actually has the best price on the Medela that I have found! I love it.

Re: Underwire nursing bras

I bought my underwire at Kohls. I'm not sure how big they go up but it's worth checking out. They were 50% off I think, less than $15-16 each.
And I really like how the straps are thicker and nicely padded...

Re: Underwire nursing bras

I have the same issue (size) and could NOT find an underwire that was actually worth any support. I ended up going to mimi maternity and spending a bundle- the only one that was actually supportive ended up being the one that was not underwire. Ppl with little boobs don't understand that underwire does NOT = support! Those ones at motherhood were a joke for me.

Re: Underwire nursing bras

I only have D cup boobs.. but the MM nursing bra I got I refuse to wear because the support is in the negative range. I have 4 of the cheap wal-mart bras that work just fine. They're all soft cup as well since I too heard to the underwire = problems thing.

Re: Underwire nursing bras

have you tried a norvell?
they dont need an underwire, (I kid you not this is more support than anything even a high impact sports bra)
I am a 28F and have no bounce whatsoever! not to mention they are custom sized so you can order just about any size you want! (great for me because I cant wear a 34 lol)
I usually get mine on ebay for around 15 dollars

Re: Underwire nursing bras

My dears, go to Nordstrom's. They have some of the most awesome nursing bras EVER. AND they go well past DDD/E cup sizes.

I did find a decent non-underwire bra this time from Elle McPherson's line but what works for a DD cup might not work for larger cup sizes. I got them mainly to get through the early weeks and then I'll go back to underwire.
