Is there such a thing as a semi-cute nursing bra? I wasn't aware that underwire can lead to blocked ducts... and all the bras I own are underwire! Also, I am NOT well-endowed at all. Any suggestions for nursing bras for those like me?
Check out Hotmilk Bras. They are super nice and very cute! They have underwire as well as no underwire. I don't think underwire always causes blocked ducts. I think that's only for people who are really sensitive to that. But I'm not 100 percent sure. I'm going to have an underwire and one without, just to see which one I like better.
I like that the Bravado bras and tanks have a full clip down, instead of the little hole cut-out on the interior layer.
P.S. I definitely had no desire AT ALL to wear an underwire in the beginning, but once bf-ing was well established and I wasn't nursing every 45 minutes, the underwire bras were not a problem for me. It is most crucial in the beginning when your milk supply is regulating and you are dealing with engorgement to have comfy bras. After your supply regulates, you don't have to worry as much about blocked ducts.
I don't have a good recommendation, but I do have to say that I absolutely do not like the underwire ones. The one I used does not flip down nice, it actually hurts a bit and doesn't stay down. I just bought one from Motherhood that has no wire and so far I like it. Yes, I am already wearing it, just because I needed to start wearing bigger bras.
I got one from Motherhood at 16 weeks and it has lasted me this long. It is underwire, and when it gets a little closer to d-day, I will probably buy one of the more comfy "sleep bras" that don't have wire. I've just grown quite a bit since I got pregnant and need coverage and support
