So I live in a college town and apparently people don’t have babies here. I’ve gone to places like Macy’s and Kohls and they have no maternity section or nursing bras in their regular section. Our TJ Maxx doesn’t sell nursing bras. Our target had one type of nursing bra but it depressed the middle of my boob even when I went up to the larger side, walmart also had one brand and I have never felt so unattractive in my life, it pressed my boobs down making them look like saggy baggies and I’d much rather not wear a bra than wear that horrid thing.
I’ve bought two bras that have a front clip but they’re not as handy as the nursing bra clips so I think it’s time to go shopping online. Anyone have any recommendations for a good nursing bra that at least offers some support/structure?

Bravado & Anita…about what size are you? I think that makes a big difference. If you are on the bigger size, Ms. Cheese has a post on the same…

I just bought some this week! I went to Destination Maternity which is a store that has Pea in a Pod and Motherhood Maternity in it. I got 4 GREAT bras. Plus they were having a special buy 3 get 1 free. I don’t know if there is one near you but you can google it and search for the closest store. And they do sell online if one’s not near you.

@cannotwait: That’s one reason I wanted to try them on in the store, they just had a growth spurt so now in some brands it seems like Cs fit better and in some Ds fit better. So….34/36 C/D seems to be what fits best but kinda depends on the store.

My boobs have been staging a hostile takeover this entire pregnancy and I quickly grew out of the sizes sold in most stores (I am 32F right now, small band but huge cup which is really hard to find in stores and I am only at 20 weeks!)
I ordered bras online from Bravado and I love them. Ok, they are pretty ugly but under clothes my boobs look good and are where they should be and they – the bras, not my boobs – are super comfortable, which was the most important thing for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to someday where my pretty bras again, but for now, these are totally getting the job done. I found their charts made it really easy to figure out what size to order and their return policy is good (though I didn’t have to test it out).

Bravado or Elomi. I ordered the Elomi bras through barenecessities.com.

I have a few from Motherhood Maternity that I really like. They have really thin padding. It’s just enough to be supportive and not have your boobs sagging. They aren’t the prettiest bras, but they fit and are super comfortable. The ones I have fasten in the back and have clips at the top of each cup for nursing.
i have 3 of this one. 2 nude. 1 black

I have been living in the nursing tanks from Target. Things may change when I return to work, but up until now they have worked out great. They are about $18.

I was at a moms/preggo group last week and the women with babies were swearing by the ones from Pea In A Pod. She said they were kinda pricy, but she bought 2 and wears one of them every single day. She said they were great. They looked like a stretchy bra
