I was so discouraged. I bought a couple of nursing bras from Target, and they were the most uncomfortable bras I have ever worn in my life.
I then discovered Motherhood Maternity. What a freakin Godsend. The woman working there was SO helpful. Being a firsttimer, I wasn't entirely sure WHAT I needed, and she took the time to explain sizing and whatnot. I got a couple of bras that are super comfy. I also bought something that I thought I would never buy: maternity underwear. I never understood the need for it, but it is SOOOOO comfortable. I may just continue wearing it after the baby comes.
Haha! You sound just like me last weekend. I went to our local JC penny's and discovered the same thing. Luckily we have a outlet mall about 20 min away that has a motherhood maternity and I stocked up. The sales associates were so helpful and I love the clothes. Some could even pass for regular clothes I can wear after baby is here! Our local Kohls had a very small selection of maternity. When I was preg with DS they had a lot more, guess department stores are getting away from stocking maternity wear.
