I used nursing bras while EPing because it's much easier, and I've not gone back to normal bras. Already having some soreness, so I will probably just stay in my well-worn nursing bras throughout pregnancy.

I always have to try on a ton before I can find anything that's comfortable enough and that doesn't make my boobs into some weird shape (excessively pointy, for example ). I might go looking for the kind that is just cotton knit with an underwire (Playtex makes them, I think). I used to love them when I was heavier, but I haven't been able to find them in small enough sizes since I lost a lot of weight several years ago. Maybe they'll work now that my rack is getting bigger again.

I pulled it over the top. for me i could be in and out easy with one hand. maneuver my shirt too in that one movement. The bra helps cover the bottom of your breast, too, instead of a flap hanging open). I nursed a long time and no one ever saw my boob- at least not until he was a toddler trying to help himself and we had to have a talk! (-and soon phased out NIP, lol)

Am I the only person in the world whose boobs DON'T get bigger with pregnancy? They get slightly fuller but not anywhere near big enough to go up a cup size, even when nursing. This time around they haven't even gotten sore like they did with DS and my miscarriage.

Too bad they HURT and it's hard to find a thickly padded bra in my size that isn't a push-up (double OW). Gawd, I'm going to look silly if I make it to a B before my belly gets huge, like I'm going to fall flat on my face since I'm really skinny to start with.
With the discomfort I'm having on the smaller end of the spectrum, I really feel for you ladies on the other end
I'm with you - with dd, I only got to finally fill out my A's. Have no clue what it's like to grow with pregnancy. And, from the looks of the beginning of this one, I will never find out! They are very sore and tender, though. Unlike my first pregnancy.
