With or without underwire is fine. I love my bravado seamless body silk bras, but I have lost weight and they are now way too big. I imagine we have a year of nursing left, so I need something to get me through that but I don't want to spend a ton of money. Any recommendations? I think I'm either a 32DD or a 34DD.

I've been regularly checking the trading post here and the boards on diaper swappers for used bras. This way I'm able to get name brand big $ bras that are gently used for just a few dollars. Like you, my size isn't that common, so it takes some patience, but I've found some great deals. Good luck!

I have definitely been watching for them here and there as well! It is hard to find my size, especially now that I realize I think I'm a 32DD. 34DD is hard enough!

Not sure about the sizes, but I have all Gilligan & O'Malley from Target, and they work fine. Mine are non-underwire.

I have one of these, for a daytime bra

and three of these for sleep.

ETA often sizes in the store are different from what they have online, so it's worth a look.

I got so irritated trying to find a nursing bra that I liked that I converted my old non-nursing bras to nursing bras. I figure that by the time I am done with nursing (years from now, hopefully), I will need/want to buy new bras anyway. http://eternalvoyageur.xanga.com/710...a-nursing-bra/

I think it cost me $10 in all... a generous estimate. I just bought the hooks and some ribbon. I had the needles and thread. Once you do one, it takes about 10 minutes per bra to do it, start to finish.
