What nursing bra are you using/wearing?


Where did you get it?


What are you wearing to bed?


Does your bra have a wire?

I'm not. I gave up on the ones I had because my milk came in and they were already tight. It became like wearing a training bra.

I had gotten it from Target because everyonse said those were the best. I have nothing to compare them to though. There is no wire.

I wear XXL cami's with a built in sports bra. It accomodates my boobs but not my height, so it always wiggles down. I need to go shopping and get some more bra's that fit or grab some sleep bra's from BRU. They look sooooo comfy!!

Yeah I worry about my bra being to tight. I bought a few nursing sports bra type bra's. My boobs really sag in them though. LOL I don't want to tighten them b/c I don't want them too tight. I wanted to get some more but it is so hard to find stores around me that carry nursing bras.

I gave up on nursing bras. The ones I did find that were supposedly big enough for me really didn't fit right, and no stores around me carry ones big enough, so I got fed up with ordering ones that weren't fitting. I pretty much just strip down and take the bra off when I am nursing (after all I have to take both sides down anyway). I only do that when I am home though. I don't see how I would manage nursing them when I am not home, cause without my big green pillow, there is no way I could do it. When I am going to be out long enough we think they may need fed (which is rare) we take bottles for them just in case.

The couple bras I do have all came from motherhood maternity.

Oh and I sleep in a bra at night too. When I get up in the middle of the night to get the kids, I have to have some kind of support. I can't walk around without a bra, they hang and bounce WAY too much ... and I don't feel like having to get dressed when I do get up.

Yeah it's hard to find something that fits right. They seriously had 28 A's in nursing bra's. I was like umm, even a small lady needs more space than that!!! I sag in my cami's and I'm using reusable nursing pads, so it's super annoying that nothing holds them in place at night. I've just started sleeping up right with Roghan on my chest to prevent the pads running away and make BF a little simpler at 5am.

After searching EVERYWHERE for a dang nursing bra, I finally just settled for some at Target. One of the styles I absolutely HATE. It's so uncomfortable, and so hard to get it un-clipped and down, it sucks when you have a screaming hungry baby, and you can't get the dang bra down low enough for baby to latch on. The other style is one of their sleeping bras, and I love those! I sleep in them and wear them during the day. They aren't real supportive, but I am not very fortunate in the chest area, and not large, so they work for me.

I tried on I think every bra out there, and most were awful. I even tried on some Bravado bras (so expensive!), and they were not comfortable either. My search for a perfect bra made me want to design my own!

I got mine from motherwear.com and they seem to work. I got 2 non underwire and one nursing bra. It is definitely different than my Victoria secret and I am not feeling very sexy on them but they work to nurse him and feel better on my tatas than my regular bras. I wouldnt mind something that actually let's them up as my chest is not big even with milk.

Sleep bras from Motherhood Maternity. I refuse to go with anything else. Day and night. They are phenomenal. Not sure how they'd be for larger-busted ladies; I'm fairly small at a C to a D.

Motherhood maternity. Ive both sleep and underwire nursing bras that they fit me with. My bra size surprised the crap outta me. I thought i was a 40 D. Turns out im a 34 E lol. In real stores im a 34 DD. It sounds scary but im not THAT big chested, my ribcage is just narrow which makes the letter go up. But in any event, they were cheap, really comfortable and nice!
Ive this sleep bra, which i wore my last few weeks of pregnancy and while i delivered lol.

Lina, that wrap bra is the one I was talking about. I freaking LOVE that bra. I have an older design from a couple years ago, and some newer ones I got just last month. They are phenomenal and I'm not as worried about plugged ducts or anything, because although they hold the girls in place (as well as the little breast pads), they don't dig into the skin or breast tissue at all.
