I have been trying to find a good nursing bra that actually looks pretty as well. I'm not very large, but since I've been breastfeeding my girls are lopsided. I'm probably a little less than a B cup on the right and closer to a C on the left. I'm a 34. So what I really want is a bra that is wireless, with soft cups (sort of light padding, basically to make me look more even and to keep the nips from showing). I am willing to spend around 40 bucks, but cheaper would be nice. I'm just so tired of these granny looking bras from motherhood maternity. They don't even seem to fit me properly...ugh. I used to have such beautiful lingerie, now the stuff in my drawer is just sad. Knowing I had pretty bras gave me a little self esteem boost, and now knowing that I plan on nursing for a long time makes me want much better and prettier bras. Help!

I really like pea in a pod, and they have a nice wireless option. They're relatively simple, but still have some nice things, and aren't insanely expensive (30-40$ range).
I've also heard good things about Bravado, but havent tried them myself.

I love my Bravado bras! In fact, I'm sorry I didn't discover them right at the beginning, as I now have 3 and hardly ever wear my other bras, what a waste! The Bravados are sooooooo comfortable! As for pretty, well, they're just basic, nothing frilly or fancy, but the black and magenta ones I have are a little more fashionable than the beige one, lol.
BTW; I'm a D cup, and although the Bravado has no underwire, it offers plenty of support, no problem!

I just got a nursing bra from Hot Milk (http://www.hotmilklingerie.com/shop/) and it's not only cute, it's comfortable! And they're not super expensive, either. I have this one: http://www.hotmilklingerie.com/shop/bras/radiant-in-her-rescue-nursing-bra/ and I really like that the hook and eyes on the back are metal, not plastic- well made.

I"m a fan of the Bravado original and the Seamless Silk nursing bras. The original is sports-bra-like, though, so a bit of a pain to put on and take off, but comfortable. The seamless silk ones are really comfy too, but a bit pricier.
Bravado Bliss lover here!!! I am an E/F, but find the Bliss very supportive (normally I just MUST have an underwire, but the Bliss is fine without it). It's not really "pretty" if that's your main criteria, but I just LOVE it so much for the fit. I tried a Hotmilk also, but didn't like the fit and their underwire bra did not have ANY padding to it, so the nips were really obvious. The Bliss has molded cups that offer good cover-up (I am lopsided too).
