Still looking. I haven't been able/willing to wear an underwire since nursing. For now I buy a Canadian brand that I really like (Elita), but it doesn't provide quite enough support. But the underwear and bras are extremely comfortable, almost like you're not wearing anything at all.
Only thing is I can only find them in Cannon Beach, OR, a tiny town on the coast.

LOL Saige - that was my exact same thought when I saw this post! Sorry, I have no answer to the question at hand...even before I was nursing, I was never happy with my bras and always on the endless quest to find the perfect one!

Saige, I have been braless for a long time now, too, but I NEED one as I've started occasional part-time work away from home. My old ones do not fit me anymore, I wore 36C and now I went to the store and I am 38DD. It baffles me because I feel I have nothing left in the breasts (as Katgut said about her friend on the old boards, these are the packages in which my breasts arrived LOL). I used to like sheer cups (translucent ones) and now it shows all the wrinkling like I was trying to stuff a raisin in a sack, sad. I see the humourous side of it but also am a bit upset. and that's the board where I can unload these feelings and hopefully get some advice, too. I would like to look smooth under business-casual clothing and may be get sth playful too (half-sobbing here).

Lisamarie -

Sounds like fun for Dane! I'm actually thinking of going in July. My mom has a house in Seaside and I just miss so much staying there. This woman actually takes orders over the phone and will ship UPS.

Lane Bryant (yes, I'm a big girl, lol!) has a new cotton demi-bra that I really like. I can even pull the cups down enough to nurse without cutting off circulation! I started as a 36-38C and went up to a 40DD. Now I'm back to a D, but I really should just get rid of the old C's I have, I don't think the girls will ever fit back into them =)

I don't need much support and so I found a Jockey pullover style that I really like. It is mostly just like a real stretchy short tank with elastic under the breasts.

I love the friday bra by warners. It sort of looks like a sports bra, but not as binding. It's very comfortable, gives great support, & best of all pulls down easily for nursing

I just got Hanes Her Way Flexable wire bra. Its cotton/spandex so I can pull it down to nurse and its got this flex wire that looks wavy that goes along the bottom, not up the middle. SO comfy. Finally, those nursing bras are UGLY!! and I didnt want to spend the money on the nice Bravado ones.......and these are cheap too. Six buck xat Walmart.

Playtex 18 hour bra, no underwire but loads of support and separation. During the 19th hour though, true to it's brand, it does start to feel uncomfortable. Strangely, up to that point, you hardly even notice you're wearing it.

I love to wear bikini tops instead of bras. Now that I'm nursing and actually know what it means to need support, I like this Victoria's Secret bikini top, cause its just as sturdy as a good bra while still reminding me of the golden days I spent frollicking around this natural hot sptings resort where dh and I worked...bikini top and yoga pants or less...ah...

Another vote for Decent Exposures Unbra! It is all I've worn for about 9 years - nursing or not! So comfy!
