Hi. What's your favorite nursing bra for a large bust? Is there one that is supportive, minimizing, and not uncomfortable? Thanks

I liked the Medela soft cup - the kind with the plastic clasps instead of hook/eye closure. I think I have at least 5 sizes floating around - from 42DD down to current 38C.

Now that my weight is down, I like the Leading Lady soft cup. Not as expensive, either.

Leading Lday soft cup! I have a4 34D and they are very nice - I don't look like I have Taco shaped breasts! I also found a Leading Lady sports bra that is SUPER comfy (wearing it now) and pretty supportive!

"Title 9" catalogue has a nice collection of great exercise nursing bras.

Decent Exposures. Very comfortable. They specialize in large sizes. Try the Lined Lycra for firm support.

I only do Decent Exposures now. They customize sizes and customize construction if you have allergy issues with elastic!

If they still include quotes in their catalog, I'm the one who said that comfortable bra is no longer an oxymoron.

I love my Bravado bras! I have been wearing them now for about two years and I keep saying that I'm going to continue to wear them after I am done nursing because I have never found a more comfortable and supportive bra with such cute patterns that fits me.

my favorite bras are the ones usually sold as "sleeping bras" They are microfiber (they feel like panty hose..sorta)Hanes her way from K-mart! No they aren't nursing bras...but pull up or down easily..and are like not wearing one at all.
