Mamas, any suggestions for some nice, pretty-looking, cotton or mostly cotton bras to wear for the rest of this pregnancy and into nursing? I feel like my bra size has increased yet again recently, and I'm having a hard time finding ones that are cute, and offer some support without having wires. Thanks!

Hot Milk makes sexy nursing bras. Honestly, I wore wires the whole time I was nursing DD. I have huge boobs, that got even huger while I was nursing, and not wearing underwire is really just not an option for me. My issue finding nursing bras was that none of them offered the support that I needed. I wound up just wearing regular bras and taking my boob out the top. eyesroll.gif

I have very large breasts (44 EEE or something like that with Michael) and I just used Cacique jersey bras.  They are cotton, and almost like a jog bra, but they snap in the back.  I pushed my boob out the bottom, and never had problems with plugged ducts or pain or anything (one case of mastitis at 24 months).  They always have a sale with them, so I bought a bunch at the beginning of this pregnancy.  Unfortunately, they don't go past I think DDD, so I might have to find something else for nursing.  We shall see.

You! Lingerie ( makes sexy nursing bras that are comfy and affordable. My fav is Rumi Noir (see below). If you like and are signed up for Zulily, they have a sale going on right now. You can save a little bit of money and bring sexy back!!!
