Is that too much to ask? *~*  Baby is 16 months now and to this point I have mostly been wearing nursing tanks, because they give the easiest access since baby nurses frequently throughout the day.  What I don't want: So much structure in a nursing bra that it won't fold over properly to allow baby access to the breast.  

But I'm tired of looking flat-chested in these nursing tanks.  The reason I wear the tanks is both easy access and comfort, as well as the fact that I can wear another shirt overtop and then when I pull the other shirt up to nurse, I still have the tank on and no one sees the fat rolls on my waist (I'm much more concerned with someone seeing my back fat than I am having them see my bare breast. :P  I have several shirts now though with stretchy necks that I can nurse out the top in, and I'm dying to get a nice cute bra that will make me look perky again (though I'm willing to settle for "not totally droopy" at this point.) Anyhow, I'm tired of being shapeless and I want a nice, padded, sexy bra, in some nice bright (non-white, non-nude color) fabric.  But still gives me semi-decent access.  I am willing to put up with a slightly less comfortable bra, as long as it's not going to block ducts while I nurse, and is not so padded that baby has to compete with the bra to get in the proper space to nurse, etc.  Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm in the UK and Mothercare make padded nursing bras.  I never get them (i'm a J cup when nursing an infant, and an F at smallest when nursing a toddler so i need more support than they give and can't "do" the padded cup, i need a fabric cup to "pour" my breast into to give it shape, i just fall out the sides of padding and look like a pert boob cake with the filling coming out on all sides....) but my smaller-chested friends do and they look great on them - just google it i'm sure they'll ship internationally (don't know where you are).


Another place to google is hotmilk, i think they're australian but there are almost certainly stockists wherever you are and they do some really nice sexy nursing bra's with nice matching underwear.

Thanks, I will check those out!  I'm in Canada.  I found a company called You! Lingerie that has some really cute sets!  They don't ship to Canada but I can surely find a way to get them!  And your description of your padded nursing bra woes gave me a really good laugh, lol!!
