With Clara I had a few of those grey Target nursing bras, a couple Walmart ones, and I even bought one of those fancy Bravado $60 bras.... And they've all been crap, IMO, lol. They just start wearing down so fast. Have any of the BTDT found any good nursing bras? Im thinking of just investing in some good regular bras (no underwire, of course) and just using them. I mean, it's what I used after Clara was 6 mos old anyways.

Oh, I did use a lot of nursing camis... But Im kind of large chested when BFing and the lack of support was annoying sometimes.

I could use these suggestions because I'm down to only 3 bras that fit. And I'm having trouble finding bras that are 38DD. So I'm thinking I'd rather just go buy some nursing bras and start wearing them now.

I used Bravado nursing bras for 9 months while I was nursing DD (and still wear them occasionally) and have never had a problem with them. When they start to stretch I just wash and dry them again and they retain their shape. Sorry you didn't like them! I have no other advice.

Maybe it wasnt Bravado, I dont remember....

Let me see if I can dig it up. I bought it on Diapers.com....

It was this one.. So yeah, Bravado..

Bravado Designs Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra - Best Price

I guess just the lack of support is what I dont like in nursing bras. And those little pads that go in the bra didnt last through 2 washings, lol, so that was annoying. I mean, it was an ok bra, but not for $50!

I guess Ill just be buying some good regular bras and using those.

I'm having a hard time finding anything with any support whatsoever, too. I'm very large chested (32F, borderline bigger) with a really short waist/torso, so I NEED the support to prevent me from looking like a squash.

I swear don't work here - but I am totally in love with this store! As my boobs grew to obscene proportions during this pregnancy, they fitted me with brands I had never heard of! I especially like Anita (which are super comfy) and have tons of support for my now 36H's (). I'm super happy that brand also does maternity - although I have not tried any on yet....

I just found this when clicking around her website - how and when to fit nursing bras:
Bras for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding, How to Select Pregnancy Bras
She suggests buying nursing bras at 30-32 weeks - as this is the size most people are after engorgement goes down.

Bravado bras are supposed to be good but I've never tried them. I think I'll invest in some this time around though. I had some from Target last time that were okay. I think it just comes down to what you find comfortable and comes in the right sizes for you.
