Bra /braless talk/breast questions - Page 2

post #21 of 28

I LOVE being able to be braless at night right now but I know once the baby comes, I will need to wear a bra and change breast pads frequently through the night or my sheets, mattress and babies head will be soaking wet as I am such a leaker in the beginning. It does slow down for me but I seem to be pretty "leaky" for at least the first year nursing.

I recently had to start wearing a sports bra to bed because my nipples/breasts are SO sore, and I'm only 9 weeks. I am not entirely sure what I'm going to do when they start getting bigger, I'm hoping they don't get too big. I'm already in an H. 
For ladies in Canada, there's an amazing bra store called Change that has really good bras at semi-reasonable prices.

For new moms, don't ever wear an underwire bra if you are nursing because it's known to cause clogged ducts. In case you haven't heard that before.

Dayiscoming, I'm a new mom and have never heard not to wear an underwire bra, I am an H/I and I only own underwire. I'm just curious how underwire causes clogged ducts?

I don't know the answer to the question but have heard this from more than one source (kellymom?) website, books, people etc.  I am also one that has to wear a bra 24/7 when nursing because I LEAK SO MUCH

I was about a G or H before DD and I'm happy to say that they didn't grow much. They did firm up (particularly when engorged.. OUCH!) for the first six months or so and although I'm still nursing (DD is 21 months) they feel like my regular boobs lol. The first few months were weird though, with the leaking, lumpiness and tenderness and outside of a wedding I haven't worn an underwire in two years.. They are just so constrictive!

Very glad to hear that! I hope mine do the same. What brand do you wear? I haven't been able to find a non-underwire bra in years that supports and doesn't give me a uni-boob

Well I wear Walmart brand sports bras - definitely not ideal support and pretty high on the uniboob scale but they are comfy and great for nursing. The one big advantage is that they are really cheap so I can replace them once the elasticity starts to go.

Even long thick hairs are okay? I can just imagine them tickling babys throat or something odd. I wish my LLL meeting were at a better time. I really want to be prepared for nursing, i have flat/inverted nipples.Anyone else have them?
