I can not find any nursing bras that I like.
They all seem to have the metal or plastic wire that runs on the sides and they ALL dig into my side right under my armpit. I have tried about 6 different types.
I LOVE my victoria Secret bras... why cant I just have those as nursing bras


I want something with out the side wires, with a little padding, & the inside have the hole for your boob to go into (most of them just have the side strap and I am a D or DD depending on the bra and with out the hole I look down and see my boobs playing peek a boo out the side of my bra's.

Everything is order online and if you do not like it you have to pay shipping to return it.

Have you tried the bravado nursing bras? I love the original bravado nursing bra. It does have any padding though but it is so comfy and gives me great support. They have others that may have padding. I ordered mine from diapers.com. I just ordered a black one yesterday.

The bravados dont have the hole. This is from Glamourmom but they are out of my size.

No help here sorry, I havent found one I like yet either, and why dont they make one that is like a cloth diaper, waterproof and with an absorbant insert so you arent leaking all the time? I think I might just make my own if I can figure out how.

I was just given a Gilligan & OMalley bra that I really like!! No padding, though. But it has the boob holes like you mentioned, and it's very comfortable and fits me well.

Do you have a item number or something on the tag?
I went to my Target store and they are remodling so they had maybe 3 differet bras and 1 type of tank in 3 colors and that was it.

If I could take parts off the bras I have here I do not like and turn my regular bras into nursing bras I think I would be so happy.. but I am not that crafty or have the time to do it.

The only idea I have is that you might be able to find a seamstress locally who would be willing to convert your existing bras into nursing bras to your specifications. Probably quite pricey, though.

I bought 4 bras at Motherhood Maternity about 2 weeks before I delivered. The salesperson said that my size at 38 weeks should be the same as what I would need a few weeks post-partum when everything "settled down". Ha! All 4 bras are too small 4 weeks out, but I don't really have the time to go bra hunting. I bought the biggest cup size that they had in stock, and I don't want to order online and guess on what my size should be. Mostly I go bra-less when I'm home with Aubrey.

I love my sleep bra and I just stay in it until I have to go out.
What about nursing tanks?
Some people use regular sports bras.
I've heard that Nordstroms has a good nursing bra fitting department, but you have to ask - they don't have their nursing bras out on the shelf at least at our Nordstroms.

I just wear my nursing cami unless Im really going out, I have over production issues right now and leak like crazy all the time so I dont bother putting real clothes on. That's why I wish they made a waterproof nursing bra, nursing pads just irritate my nipples

I think I have this one. For 14.99 it's worth a try!

If you are looking for Vikki style nursing bras, check out You! Lingerie. They have sexy and affordable nursing bras that look just like some of my VS bras. They don't have the hole for your boob, BUT they do have enough coverage to not worry about sideboob hanging out

I am a D cup and 2 of the full cup ones and they support me great.
