I have very small breasts and barely fill out a b cup.. so I might not help.. but I have 2 without underwire from Target (not sure of the brand) and I love them! They are comfy enough to sleep in too.

Breastfeeding/pregnancy threw me from a B cup to a D cup... soo....

I use Bestform... bought them at Wal*Mart. Normally, I think Wal*Mart stuff tends to leave a lot to be desired, but I love these bras! They have them in several sizes, and there's no uniboob!

I should probably buy some new ones, but I still wear the ones that I got at Target because they are so comfy.

I am a size that can't be found at Target and Walmart, unfortunately.
I have some from Breakout Bras and I got some from JCPenney.

My favorite "everyday" bra is this one: Everyday bra
It is comfortable and easy to wear and comes in many sizes. I actually got it from JCPenney, but they both have this bra- I"m sure other places do too.

It is an everyday bra for the comfort, it isn't the most "uplifting" though, if that is problem for you!
(I only realized this after seeing pics of myself at Christmas wear it! Whoops!)

I have found that I like the sleeping bras. The kind that criss-cross and you just pull them down. I got mine at Motherhood for like $12.99. They aren't the most supporting bras, but they are comfortable. And since I still leak, I have to wear a bra 24/7 so comfort is key. Plus I have found it easier to nurse in public with it since I am not dealling with any type of clasp

I think you girls have Thyme down in the states. I bought two regular cotton maternity bras (not nursing bras) from there and I love them. I just pull the material down, out pops my boob and Ethan is a happy little lark. They don't even stretch when you do this. I find it very easy to NIP when we're out because you don't have to worry about clasps or anything. It's not just for small chests either because I'm a 38D.

For the larger breasted nursing moms who go above and beyond what you can find in department stores (and in my case, beyond what they carry at motherhood maternity!), here is a great link for you:

http://www.ladygrace.com

They are an actual brick-and-mortar shop in Massachusetts, but I have bought online from them for several years now. They carry a bra called the Goddess 511 that is my favorite nursing bra.... Fancee Free and Leading Lady are the only other companies that make nursing bras in my size. The Goddess 110 is my favorite bra for non nursing.

I range from a 38 or 40H when milk first comes in to a 36G regularly.

Ok so, where do we find this Bravado bra? I have the sleep bras from Motherhood for night time but, dont dare go out in it! I love my Medela bra for daytime.

Has anybody tried the Leonisa nursing bras? I found them on eBay, and I'm wondering if they're worth the extra $$. I can find cheaper bras at Target that will work fine, but I'd also like to have 1 or 2 that are cuter!

Why don't you try the all in one shirt and nursing bra fom topmommy. It feels really comfy besides making you look cool. I own a few myself and can never praise them enough to my friends.

i bought 3 bras from walmart, 2 cotton and one lacey and they completely did the trick, i seriously don't know if i could ever buy an expensive nursing bra, the staining, the stretching out...i would much rather buy cheaper ones and just deal until i can buy new regular bras.

I bought 4 bras from walmart and love them. They are best form comfort strap nursing bras. They have nice thick shoulder straps and I wear them 24/7. I also am a bigger gal and need either a 44 DDD or 42 and they provide tons of support. I actually started wearing them the last month of so of my pregnancy. I am sure you can order them online too so you won't have to search for your size.
