Hello! I am 38 weeks pregnant and sooooo uncomfortable in the bras I am wearing right now, planning to breastfeed and looking for good nursing bras. I live in Mexico so I have to buy things online and have them sent to me...it's kind of an ordeal. I heard about Bravado and they look great... but I don't know if they are worth the money... any opinions?

I have several of the basic original ones. I have a relatively large chest and the only thing I think they are great for is sleeping. They don't offer very much support for wearing out of the house.

I have two wonderful nursing bras that I love!! One is a wireless soft cup by Elle McPherson. Here is a link to where I bought it Elle McPherson Bra It is a little on the expensive side but very much worth the price. For a soft cup bra it offers great support and is really comfortable.

The other one I love is the Anita Bra. This one is an underwire and offers good support and is comfortable. For me I needed an underwire for some clothes, the soft cup just doesn't look that great with everything. Here is a link. Anita Bra This one is even more expensive but also worth it if you are planning to breastfeed for awhile.

If I had to choose between the 2, I would go with the Elle McPherson bra.

Good luck!!!

I don't have any experience with that one. I just mainly use the Target Gillian O'Malley nursing bras. But I have a smaller chest.

I LOVE my Bravado bras!!!!

Everone is shaped differently and needs different support, but these are well designed and well made, and very comfortable.

My Bravado bra is my favorite nursing bra. I'm normally a 34A but now am probably a 36B. I'm about to order more! Totally worth the money in my opinion. But it depends on your body type & personal preferences I'm sure.

I love mine as well. Very comfortable and plenty of support for me and I am a 34-36D since having my baby.

Thanks for the input... I am going to get one to try and go from there. Swandor... thanks for the other suggestions. I am kind of large chested (now that I am pregnant... never was before!) so I am thinking I might need to get some more supportive bras once I go back to work and will check out those links you send me

The only nursing bra I wear is the bravado supreme nursing bra. I have 3, paid $50 a piece and I wear them EVERY DAY! I'm a 40F. This bra is well worth the money.
