I liked my Target ones until recently. Now, nothing feels good (9th month).  I just bought a Medela and it’s pretty good–well, better than the rest.

I have some soft fabric ones from Target. The brand is Gilligan and Omalley and Target had some sizes on clearance (under $6 a pop!!). (here) They are the most comfortable without losing their shape and stretching out, which all other soft bras seem to do as I’m a 38DD/38E right now at 6 months. I haven’t nursed in them yet, but they are comfy to sleep in. The first thing I do when I get home is put them on!

I hear ya! Maternity stuff is outrageously priced for only getting a few months use out of it. That’s why I stuck with Target, because even their regular priced maternity bras are under $20 and many are around $12. I bought some larger sized regular bras on super clearance, and then a few nursing bras as well. They have many different styles, with both soft and molded cups. To save money I’d look there first!

I liked my Target one okay as well, but my favorite was actually some cheapo Hanes cotton sports bras from Kmart-I just flipped them up and was ready to nurse. They were my saviors! Don’t pay a ton of $ for nursing bras, expensive doesn’t always mean better. I found the ones with all the snaps and bells and whistles were my least favorite. Good luck on your search, its a tough one lol. πŸ™‚

I love the target nursing tanks. Especially for when you are just hanging out at home.

Bonus the tank keeps your tummy covered which

A – Is great early on when I did not want my tummy blubber hanging out.

B – When it’s colder keeps me warm!

C – Makes it easier to feel covered when nursing in public πŸ™‚

 

I have some other target bras that are normal and comfortable… but I will say they do nothing for the shape/appearance of my boobs πŸ™‚ blah.

I’ve asked for Vicki’s gift cards for Christmas so I can buy the new incredible racerback bra to wear when I want to feel normal and sexy πŸ™‚ It’s a front clasp so it’ll be easy to nurse if I need to. Plus it makes my boobs look awesome! πŸ™‚  ha.

Thanks for starting this thread!  I’ve been complaing about my bras not really fitting anymore and now I know that I can check Target out for regular and nursing bras that aren’t going to break the bank! πŸ™‚  I hate how everything maternity has to automatically be more expensive just like anything wedding. πŸ˜‰

@jilian: I also like the Target nursing tanks. My friend recommended I get a few while there was a sale, early on in my pregnancy. Though I haven’t used it for nursing yet, she is the same friend who gave me the most comfy of all the hand-me-down maternity clothes so she knows what comfy is!  I remember asking her what on earth is a nursing TANK? Clueless!! πŸ™‚

I second all the comments on the Target nursing tanks. They are great to sleep in and wear around the house. However, the Target soft bras are not as good quality as I would imagine the Victorias Secret ones would be. I wish that I had just broken down and bought on from VS earlier. The Target ones that I have are soft cupped (I got clogged ducts every time I tried to wear an underwire) and they have no shape to them and really offer little support. 

Buying good nursing bras will be well worth the extra money if you are able. Your breasts will need all the support that they can get after the enlargement of pregnancy and that initial huge breastfeeding phase. Also they will go a long way towards helping you feel better about yourself.

Most maternity bras and tanks don’t handle larger cup sizes, so I bought Bravado items during my pregnancy.  (the ones with flexible sizing)  Then, when I went back to work, and my supply evened out some, I got some more flattering bras at a local boutique.

If you are interested in Bravado (I still love them for sleep & Pilates), you can sign up for their discount emails, and check out cvs.com & target.com for sales.

I have justified the expense, however, bc I don’t want saggy boobs after nursing!  lol
