I'm due in a couple weeks and am shopping around now for a good nursing bra. I've already ordered and returned two and am getting a bit desperate. I'm an H cup now and really will probably need an I when my milk comes in. With DS I used a Medela bra, but hated it. That was 5 years ago, though. Has anyone used one recently in an H cup? How are they for support these days? Last time it was so horrible and there was zero support, but it was the only one I could find in my size. I'm heavily considering doing a conversion on a couple that I have now that may still work when my milk comes in, just for wearing around the house, then also converting one or two for wearing out (I SAH). But, I would rather buy one that will work and is already a nursing bra if I can.
So, how are the Medela bras these days?
I have not tried one lately, but did use them with DS1 (was a bit smaller than you at that time). I am an H cup this time around and ended up going with a Fancee Free bra that I tried on at our local bra store (Wizard of Bras). It was the only one that seemed to fit really well. Support is moderate, and the bra that I have had for a year (used just about every day) no longer has much support at all. I have not exactly taken good care of it though. It has been used and abused and it shows. The Wizard of Bras does have a website and telephone customer service, Maybe give them a call and see if they can help? They have a fitting school onsite, so may be able to offer some help even though you cannot go in personally to try things on.
