Anyone get nursing clothes or do you plan to just lift up shirts? Also anyone really large chested, where do you get your nursing bras. I'm talking 36DDD or E by the time milk comes in. They didn't have as many options when I was nursing my dd so I'm trying to figure out what to do. Any recommendations would help.

I got a few nursing tanks. I plan to wear those under button down shirts and cardigan sweaters.

I wore a tank top under whatever i was wearing so that my belly didn't show when nursing. A good place to buy a nuring bra is a specality shop. I know Hot Milk is a brand.

i do have one nursing top, but its also a maternity top and didnt know that it doubled up until i put it on! i do love it, but i prob wont buy anymore of them, i'll just wear a belly band or a tank and lift up or pull down the outer top.

Hot milk do have some great sizes and are sooooo beautiful!

I never got nursing clothes with my other two and doubt I will this time. I just lift up my shirt and will use a cover when I'm in public.

I would do a general search online for nursing bras if Motherhood Maternity doesn't carry larger sizes.

I do have a few nursing shirts but they are from DD and it was summer time. I do love the nursing tanks from Target to lounge around the house in though! Otherwise, I just wear nursing bras, tanks and shirts over that so I can pump easily at work.

Thank you Julka for my beautifully, perfect siggy!!

I think I'll probably just wear easy-to-access tops rather than nursing ones.

As for bra sizes, I'm no help sorry

I didn't wear nursing shirts with DS I just wore nursing tanks under my clothes almost every day. I'd pull my shirt up and unsnap the tank top. Between the 2 nothing ever showed!

I also love the nursing tanks.....I usually wear button down shorts or cardigans or just something easy. The tanks are nice because they keep you covered....especially in the winter! they are also very comfortable. However, I've heard some larger chested women feel they need more support than the tanks give. I don't have that problem!!

I don't use nursing tops. & I don't think I ever lifted up my shirt.. I always just pulled the boob out of the top. I found that really easy & far less noticeable. However I get to wear tanktops pretty much all year round so I'm lucky with that. I guess if it was cold and I had to wear a top with sleeves it wouldn't be so easy. hmm.. never really thought about it.

Christine you should check out Walmart. They have HUGE sizes there! I don't know how large they go but when I was getting my DDs the hubby picked up one that was gigantic & put it on his head. that's how I remember.. hahaa!

I just lifted up my shirt. If you wear a button down shirt, you can just unbutton the bottom few buttons and just lift one side. Also, the tanks that don't have the latch up top were my favorite, since I have to wear a bra anyway, and having to unsnap 2 things just gets annoying. I can't wear tanks with a built in "bra" anyway...does that work for anyone? I can't see how it would be supportive!
Anyway, for nursing bras, I just discovered Hotmilk! They're actually comfortable! And super cute, too. About as pretty as they could be without underwire (a good thing, IMHO) Right now, pre-baby and pre-milk, I'm a 36E. I'll probably have to go up another size or 2. I also kind of like the Medela ones without underwire. It's not as supportive as the Hotmilk one. I also think the Hotmilk might run slightly small.
Thank you Julka for my awesome siggy!

When I'm at home I like to wear a t-shirt and just lift it, and take off baby's shirt/onsie so we can be skin-to-skin while nursing. I also have nursing tanks which are very convenient. And I have a few nursing tops (from Motherwear) that I love.

I went to a specialty shop and was fitted. I am a 42 DDD before pregnancy, so I know where you are! They were expensive bras, but very supportive.

I will probably buy a couple nursing bras and a couple nursing tank tops. I plan on wearing this with zip-up sweaters/sweat shirts for easy access. I also have a couple shirts from motherhood that are both maternity and nursing tops.
