I have roughly 10 weeks before my Squeaker is here, and I would like to start building up my nursing wardrobe. I've found a couple tutorials on making nursing bras out of regular bras, but I would also like to spring for a few nice nursing bras.
Right now I'm living in the sleep/nursing bras from Target, they are so comfy but they also stick out from under shirts and tanks. I've been looking at the nicer Gilligan O'Malley nursing bras, too. I definitely want underwire-free!
Also, where do you recommend going for a bra fitting? I've heard Vic's Secret is kind of terrible at fitting correctly so I don't want to waste a trip.

I lived in the Gilligan O'Malley nursing tanks for about 2 years. I only put on a bra when I left the house and it was just a regular bra under my nursing tanks. If I needed to nurse while I was out, I pulled up my bra, pulled down the nursing tank. Layers are important when you're nursing in public.
I didn't invest in a nursing wardrobe. Basically, if I could pop a boob out, it was a nursing top.
I used nursing tanks from target with my daughter, but wanted something nicer this time around. I got Anita brand nursing bras off Amazon. Luckily I got my size right, but Amazon also makes returns easy.
I use the ones from Motherhood and have lived in them for the past year. I love them they are underwire free and I have 2 different types. I have the normal type ones that look like normal bras for some of my nicer low cut tops and then I have the sport bra (racer back) ones that are my favorite. I live in those. And Motherhood normally has a sale on them buy 3 get 1 free.
Vic Secret is a terrible place to go when you are lactating. I would say to measure yourself to get an idea of the inches that you are. Also there are some Maternity Boutiques that can help you with that. You are right about not getting wire bras. This is because they will cause you pain and knots in your boobs.
