Favorite Nursing Bra?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Need recomendations! I hate the ones I have (from Motherhood Maternity). I am looking for: slightly padded (no-show), comfy, no underwire, not a sports bras or gives a uni-boob look. Please mention the specific bra, not just the company if you can.

 

Thanks!!!

I tend to buy the cheap Target nursing bras ($10-$17).  They only make a few styles, but do have a padded, non-underwire one that fits me well.  So long as you're a normal size, they're good.  Also, I like that they're cheap and I can have lots of them and throw them away if they get icky.

I love my Body Silk by Bravado!  It has optional liners, elastic straps, easy open clasps, no underwire, and now they come with a conversion kit to convert the bra to a regular one after you're done nursing!  I posted a coupon in the chit chat thread that's good through the new year (I think).

I use the Basics by Bravado, which I got at Target. I'm cheap, so it likely wasn't overly expensive. Works great, though! :)

If anybody runs across a sports-style nursing or even non-nursing regular cami-bra in chocolate brown, can you please tell me??  I have been looking everywhere and just can't find one.  I like to wear deep V-neck tops that I can pull aside to nurse, but I need a cami-type bra to fill in the chest space so it's not too lowcut.  Brown is my favorite color and I wear it so often, but all of my bras are these:  black, grey, red or white.  I have seen nursing tanks in brown, but I don't want the whole extra layer.  Just a cami.  Thank you!

I adore my O'Mamma bras.  they are made so that you don't need to wear nursing pads, cause they wick moisture away from your skin.  I have both the underwire and wireless--rather prefer the wireless..  

 

one caveat.  when i followed their sizing instructions explicitly, i was a 34C--but needed to return those for 34Ds.  Just FYI wink1.gif

I tend to like the nursing tanks because they cover your belly. Glamourmom, and target sell some good ones, and Bravada, too. The only thing I don't like with the GlamourMom tank is the closure--I wrestle with it all the time. The target and bravadas have easy closures, though.

 

As far as bras go, my favorite is the bravado silk. Not padded, but very comfortable and user friendly.

How well do these work?  It almost seems to good to be true.  They keep you dry feeling without being itchy?  I have a problem with re-useable breastpads because as soon as I leak into them I feel itchy and dampish.  How much can you leak into one before you have to change it?

I actually prefer my cheap Target bra to my $50 Bravado Body Silk. The Bravado bra is so high cut that I fumble a lot with pulling down the cups. Plus, it shows under lower cut tops. (I'm not talking super low cut, just tank tops and the like.) The Target bras are comfy and not so high cut. Very simple to un-clip and pull down. And nursing pads don't show under them. With the Bravado, I have to wear the liners or you can see the pads. Which just adds to the difficulty of using the bra. Of course, the Target bra I'm referring to doesn't have padding. It's this one: http://www.target.com/p/Gilligan-OMalley-Fashion-Nursing-Sleep-Bra-Black-White/-/A-13568134

 

Unfortunately, the one of the hooks broke off the back of mine. Ugh!

I wore this style when I was laboring, haha!  I like it a lot. 

I'm not super happy with any of my nursing bras but I just don't know if I can be- I go from small floppy boobs to overflowing out of my bra throughout the day depending on when he's last eaten.  I can't find a bra that accommodates that change.  Anyone else have this issue?  So I just wear nursing tanks....  Which is fine because it is more modest when I pull up my shirt but I also like to wear dressier shirts sometimes that don't look good over a nursing tank.

No solution. I pretty much just look junky all of the time. All of my cute clothes are so nursing unfriendly. I'd built up quite a wardrobe of non-nursing clothes! Oh, and dresses... sigh... when will I be able to wear a dress again?! I have two Target nursing tanks and two $8 v-neck tees, and I rotate those. I throw a cardigan over them when it's chilly. Yep.... looking good.

I have that blue Target bra too. :)

 

Yes, there are a ton of dresses in the world that are breastfeeding friendly.  I own many of them.  Luckily pretty much all of my clothes are breastfeeding friendly since I was nursing my DD1 before I got pregnant.

That's is a cool idea. Baby inside shirt leaves nothing to see.
