I switched to maternity/nursing bras when I went from a size A to a C in a matter of weeks. It is by far the most comfortable thing ever, more so than being bra-less. It’s like going from regular jeans to maternity jeans.

@travellingfool:  I just got two yesterday from target.  They are nursing/ maternity and they look like yoga bras almost- I had to!  I love them, they came on a hanger, like two of them for $23 or something.

I work at Motherhood Maternity, and right now we have a sale going on where you buy 3 bras and you get one free (which is a pretty good deal imho). I would seriously wait until closer to your due date to get the heavy duty maternity bras though because your cups will grow even MORE after your milk comes in post-baby.

I haven’t bought any maternity / nursing bras but I just got some other new ones at Soma and I LOVE them. The girl talked me into trying an unlined one to be more comfortable and allow for some extra growth and I actually love it! also got some slightly lined full-coverage “embraceables” from there that I like.

i bought nursing bras from bravado (which is a medela related company) http://www.bravadodesigns.com/ the nursing tanks are AWESOME — so comfortable and yet supportive.  also, the shipping is super fast.

@ms.fondue- are the nursing tanks long? The last thing I want is a short one that when I bend over my lower back shows. I like my tanks a little longer, like cover the belt loops on my jeans long. Im so nervous about not being able to try them on, but I have heard nothing but good things about bravado!

I liked a bra I bought from Amazon made by Condessa, it was really well made with soft fabrics, but it’s still really pretty, too! I have a really tough size to find, 38B, and they’re one of the only brands that seem to make that size.

Bras I did not like: Medela sleep bra (cheap, cheap, cheap, horrible raised seams, exposed elastic, awful) and a bra by HotMilk, which was cute but had scratchy materials on it.

I’m looking forward to trying some of the other great suggestions on this thread!!

sorry — it’s been a busy time at work lately.  I find the nursing tanks to be pretty long — about hip length.  Not long enough to wear as a tunic, but definitely cover the waist band of your pants.  the bras and tanks are the most comfortable i fave found.

Try coobie bras. This company has bras and also tanks with built in bras. 

I started at a C and am now larger than a Dirty Delete, I don’t even want to know lol. These bras are very comfortable and grow with you a little so you don’t have to keep buying new bras. These bras actually hold me up and give me some sort of shape while comfortable.

A saleslady at a maternity store I was in the other day recommended getting bra extenders instead of a whole new bra.  She suggested I wait to get new bras until closer to my due date.
