So the other day we were at the movies and Darling Husband reached across me to grab the drink and brushed against my very sensitive boobs, made even more sensitive by the fact that my nipple had popped out of my bra without me noticing! Its obviously time to buy new bras(I’ve gone up a whole cup size) and figure I might as well buy some nursing bras so I don’t have to make the switch later.
Any suggestions for good nursing bras? Options that are comfy, no wire, some wire, and not costing Victoria Secret pricing are much appreciated.

@baletrina: I have yet to find a decent nursing bra. Mostly from lack of trying… But I also hate shopping! I was told though that Nordstrom will convert any regular bra that you purchase to a nursing bra for $10. That’s my next stop as soon as I work up enough motivation!

@beckwife: That’s so cool! I’ve never heard of this before.
Commenting to follow. My cups runneth over.

I haven’t purchased any “real” nursing bras yet, as I have no clue how big the girls are going to get when my milk comes in. The Bravado Body Silk has good reviews and comes in S-M-L style sizing so I plan to start with one of those while I wait and see how much more I grow.

@baletrina: Target has good ones, for relatively inexpensive. I ended up wearing the nursing tank tops they sell all the time anyway. It’s easier to nurse in them because you don’t have to lift your shirt up to expose your stomach and you can wear them under anything, not to mention they are really comfortable.

I will also add that my boobs went from a C to bustin out of a Dirty Delete while I was nursing so beware.

@beckwife: I had never heard that about Nordstrom! Worse comes to worse I will check it out.
@bunnymama: haha. My cup too!
@iheartnerds: Thanks I am putting them on my list to find!
@Cady: I didn’t even know they made bras but makes sense? On the list. Thanks!
@Ninteenthchance: Nursing tanks are probably a must. Is there a built in bra in the tanks or do you wear a bra with it too? My breasts jumped from a B to a full C when engorged. But they went down after a few weeks so I should be ok in a C, right?

@baletrina: I found one I really really like. It is the:
Panache Sophie Nursing Bra 5821
It is really soft and doesn’t… force your breasts any which way, nice materials, breathable, and lots of sizes. I think I ordered from Nordstrom. I liked it so much I got two. Plus it is pretty.

I second the Bravado suggestion. It isn’t cheap, but it’s well-made and very comfortable. Since they are sized S-M-L and not by cup size, you have more flexibility than waiting until your milk comes in. They are also wireless, and I’ve read underwire bras can trigger problems with plugged milk ducts.
ETA: Other nursing bras: I have one from Target (okay) and one from Motherhood Maternity (utter shite).

@baletrina: they have a built in bra so they’re perfect!!!! They come in small medium large so you’ll be good either way cause they’re super stretchy. I HATED the actual nursing bras.

After my last “comfy” bra decided to poke a wire out at me I pulled the trigger and went nursing bra shopping.
The ones from Nordstrom were all highly rated but only available in size Dirty Delete or bigger. The lady there referred me to Destination Maternity.
They had a Buy 3, Get 1 Free sale so I bought 4. 🙂 I found 3 great bras that are wireless, comfy, and have room to grow!
- Elle McPherson Intimates – Momomia Jet/Pink Spot
- A Pea In the Pod – wireless “favorite” bra is what the sales girl called it. It is AMAZING.
- A Pea In the Pod – modal sleep bra – I bought two. So comfy and the little bit of support at night is much appreciated
I’ll probably buy a few more in the near future. The sale was great. Hope this helps a mommy to be/new mom!
