My nursing bras have now been in constant rotation for almost 4 years and they are misshapen, threadbare and downright uncomfortable because I have grown in size since they were originally purchased.

Any recommendations? I can't spend more than around $30 a bra and would really prefer cotton without any lace or trimmings. Motherhood used to have some inexpensive and comfortable nursing bras but I went to the store the other day and EVERY one of them was the padded/molded cup variety and I HATE that!! I know a lot of people wear those because they eliminate the nipples peeking through, but they just are not comfortable for me.

Plain, simple, cotton and supportive enough for a 40D/DD. Any suggestions, mamas?

I have never worn a nursing bra that I liked. I eventually settled on wearing non-nursing bras and haven't looked back. This isn't for everyone, of course.

I've worn and loved Bravado nursing bras for god knows how long. They tend to run a bit more than $30 for their basic cotton version. But they might have one on sale. I also recently bought one of their nursing tank tops and I love it, too. Well made, super comfy cotton, one-handed clasps. Love.

ETA: Heres their original cotton bra I'm talking about. Just checked and they're $35 full price. Not bad! http://www.bravadodesigns.com/shop/the-original-nursing-bra-plus-style

How supportive are these? I had a Glamourmom tank and disliked it - too droopy redface.gif

Also! I just remembered that Bravado is selling a line at Target now - not cotton but stretchy. May be be worth a look.

Kawa... I think I read that you usually just stick to a tank and just flop the boob over.  Any particular tank??  I feel like my milk-full boobs are ginormous and too heavy.  But I don't really like nursing bras either.

Yes! This isn't exactly the kind I wear since I bought mine a pregnancy or two ago. The tummy area isn't maternity but longer than many tanks, adjustable straps, snug fitting, cotton, shelf bra. I have a stack and that's pretty well what I'll wear for the 1st year. I like the shelf bra on top of the bra because I'm apparently really into support orngtongue.gif I'm probably a 36DD at this point which isn't ginormous as some but my breasts are by no means young and perky, I def feel full and heavy so I appreciate the containment.

I had a few of the Bravado tanks with my first baby. I was working at the time and they were great to wear under my scrubs so I could just lift my shirt to pump and still be covered. My boobs were a 36DD at the time and I felt pretty supported wearing the tank. I found one today and tried it on, and though it is way too small everywhere else, the bust fits nicely, lol!

I had a Bravado bra that was okay... not great... but maybe I had the wrong size or something. There is a fancy pregnancy/nursing shop over here by my house where they will size you, but there bras are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive! Last time I was in there I almost snort-laughed in the clerk's face when I looked at the price tags. I think there were actually a few around the $100 mark! Yikes!!

I may try Target again. I looked but didn't try on last time I was there.

i find the original nursing bra and the nursing tank to be perfect support-wise. i'm not sayin i'd go jogging in it, but for everyday wear, it is perfect. i'm a 40dd/e. ;)

I have always worn the nursing bras from Target, both camisoles and bras. I prefer the camis more as I can use it to nurse even outside without worrying about exposing the tummy area, and they are always less than 30$.

Well, I don't have to worry about this yet as I'm still not part of the postpartum club yet, but I'm highly considering this approach this time around. I did buy a couple of sleeping nursing bras and I've pretty much been wearing them during the day - they've been comfy for maternity and my daycare days. They don't clip up or anything - they just pull over. But I know that once I have the full weight of milk and am out and about more I'm going to want something more supportive. Problem is that I'm anticipating being an F cup probably - basing on what I currently am and what I was when DS was an infant. It's HARD to find an affordable nursing bra that doesn't just suck royally in this size. And what's with nursing bras saying "Easy one hand operation" and yet I'm fumbling with clips that don't want to unclip and/or clip back in?? I did finally find some that I liked last time, but they were super expensive. So I'm giving serious thought to just buying normal bras (which is still not cheap in that size, but a little cheaper anyways) and not worrying about nursing bras.

 

Anyways, I am interested to hear all of the recommendations though in case I do decide to go the nursing bra route.

 

Kawa - I admit I'm a bit self-conscious when it comes to showing in public while nursing. One thing I've wondered is if it would be harder to be discreet with a regular bra vs. a nursing bra. Any thoughts on this?

I think it depends on what you like in a nursing bra. I'm especially not a fan of the kind with the nipple cutout so if I'm going to wear a nursing bra it's going to be the kind designed so the whole cup pulls away - like with the Bravados. I assume the bras with the cutout design give more coverage. I don't expose my entire breast when using a regular bra but only take out the useful bits and above - this requires a moderately flexible cup. I don't know that it's the best route for someone who doesn't care for that kind of expose. I don't feel like I'm all out there flapping in the wind nipples and boobies everywhere but I will say an entire family was gawking at me nursing rather than fireworks last night. Anyhow, I had to do a lot of experimenting with different bras and tops and such to come to my comfort level.

Oh no I didn't mean the tank on its own but that I like the support of wearing a bra AND a tank with a shelf bra.

I bought soft cup (read: no molded cups) non-nursing bras. I just slide the strap off my shoulder and pop out the boob. I also bought shelf bra tanks to cover my tummy. Works well for my 44DDD and flucuating!

I came to ask this same question today.  Last time I mostly wore the target nursing camis, I don't think I bought a real nursing bra until DD was 3 months old.  But I'm already not liking this set up. I tried on my nursing bras from DD and they are all really uncomfortable and I feel like I spend more time trying to get in and out of it than actually nursing.  I don't like the full coverage bras because my ribs are so wide I end up looking like my boobs were put on sideways.  

 

A coule of days ago I went online and ordered a bunch of bras from target ($50 order gets free shipping) and I figure I'll try them on and just take back the ones I don't like.

I loved my Glamourmom nursing tank (I think technically they call it a "top", which has different clasps than their "tank") and just ordered another one, although with a 41w belly, it doesn't fit just yet. :)

 

FWIW, I was at Target last week and thought their regular bras were not very impressive. There was a denim colored cotton one that just seemed like the straps weren't very well built and the cup style was all wrong for me personally. I did buy two of their cotton sleep-style bras, and plan to wear those and the Glamourmoms until my milk comes in, then go shopping. I'll be back to work while pumping in a few months, so I do think it's important for me to spend some bucks to get something supportive and comfortable. I happen to like molded cups, and plan to try on a bunch at Motherhood and Pea in the Pod (only buy there if it's on sale!!). I bought a Majamas sleep bra online last week in their "new" organic silky material, and it was dreadful. I don't even have milky boobs yet and literally the underside of my boob was at exactly the same place with it on or off. Which is frustrating, since I had a Majamas plain cotton one from last time and it still gives reasonable support. Same size, different material, not adequate. I had to beg the seller to take the return!

 

Personally, I could never have nursed with #1 in regular bras. Not a modesty issue, but again, with molded cups, you'd either be hoisting your boob way up and over or mashing the bra down, which will ruin it quickly, or slipping the strap off of your shoulder, which isn't a look I like in the summer. I'm only a 36D or so, but I like supportive underwire bras and never really liked the all-stretchy cup ones. I leaked through quickly and always felt droopy.

Slightly off topic. Without a doubt, I like my Anita bras the best. I was able to get one on clearance for $40 once. I also like Condessa but it is another pretty, and expensive brand. The Glamourmoms never fit me right. The Yummy tummy maternity tank would always ride up over the pudge.

 

I have some target ones (gilligan and malley) that I started using once I started coming down in size. But I don't think a mother designed them. The inner lining for nipple cutouts or breast scaffolding always poke out above the cotton breast cover. They are square neckline and stick out of my V-neck or non-crew neck tops. I find that target does not have anything over a D cup. I was a 34DD initially and don't think they would have been comfortable at all at full milk.

 

For what you are looking for, basic cotton, inexpensive. You should try a CozyBra. It worked fine when I was DD and is still fine now that I'm a C/D though its a little loose in the "cup" area so I don't wear them as much now. I loved how comfortable it is, no chafing, could totally double as a sleep bra, breast definition (no uni-boob), no clips, V-neck for the lowcut tops when I wanted a little oomph, center-ish snaps which I seem to remember preferring though I cannot remember why. I got mine from

http://www.birthandbaby.com/shop/products/76

 

This shop also carries La Leche League bras which now come in larger cup sizes. Didn't use to when I was needing it. Click on the Sports bra category, there are a lot of affordable, comfortable bras. I mean $14.50 for a LLL nursing bra? How awesome is that? You could get two!

i'm not in your DDC but I wanted to throw an idea out there--if you have non-nursing bras you like (or can find some for a good deal), you can always do a little diy and convert to nursing. I haven't done this yet, but I know i've seen online tutorials. I don't remember where, but just google diy nursing bra and I bet you'll find plenty.

Those are really pretty! I noticed that certain colours are 50% off but they don't offers returns on those so picky me would hesitate to buy untried. Anyway, $30!

Ooh! Those look like they might actually cover my size range (tiny ribcage, big boobs), but I'm skeptical yet. Mad4mady, if you don't mind sharing, what size do you wear? I'm always looking for stuff that's worked for other ladies with similar fitting concerns to mine.

I live in an area with few maternity stores and I wanted to be measured.  The midwife who taught my birthing class suggested to us all that we should check out JC Penney's (really!).  I went and a little elderly associate who clearly knew what she was doing, measured me, brought me some bras to try and told me how to properly get my boobs in it.  Awkward and totally random...?  YES.  But so worth it!  The suggestions she made that I liked cost around $25.  8 months later, they still get the job done.  

 

I suggest going somewhere and have someone assist you - I never would have thought of going to a department store but am glad I did.

Here's a tutorial at Jan Andrea at Home, looks easy enough.  I love my Anita bras, but they usually run $70.  For that reason I'm wearing the wrong size since I bought two after the birth of my daughter and haven't gone in to be resized.  I can't afford to drop another $140 on bras!  I HATED the bras at Target, I kept losing underwires.

I just wear a regular bra (no underwire, of course!) and hike it up when needed. Maybe it's because I'm just small chested that this works fine (barely on the B size normally but nursing has increased this a bit ;-).

 

I bought a few nursing bras initially but quickly found that there is no such thing as one-handed clasping/unclasping. And the coverage was so thin (like single layer, no padding) that there was no way I could wear it as a normal bra without a nursing pad inside to avoid nipple outlines.

 

Now I just buy regular, inexpensive, soft padded bras from Target. If I'm concerned about being somewhere where I might have to NIP, I may put on a tank underneath from which I have cut slits for nursing, but which will cover the tummy. But I have found that just hiking up the old brassiere is a zillion times faster and easier than fiddling with a nursing bra (if you're small chested and can do it that way, at least.)

Target was great with my first DD.  For the first month, I lived in the nursing tank and night time bra I bought there before my daughter was born (until I went to a department store to get sized and bought a few "proper" bras from Motherhood).  However, when I went back (my old nursing bras are stretched and ugly from 2 years of use!), they didn't have the night bra that worked so well for me (plain elastic band with two pull back soft cotton cups), and the tank had these awful holes in the undershirt where my breasts stick through.  I bought the tank anyway and wear it, but the tank doesn't support me completely, so the undershirt sticks above the tank and looks totally obscene with this fabric Y sticking up between my breasts.  greensad.gif

 

I would really like to splurge on a couple of really comfortable, nice looking nursing bras to take me the distance, but we don't have a lot of extra money right now.  I did get a little cash from my shower, though.  Now I have to decide if I want to spring for a swing to calm baby in the evenings, or the nursing bras.  I can tell you which one would get used more!

Just thought I'd make a note -I ordered two bravado bras, my bust is about the exact same size as yours, OP, and though I measured carefully and ordered a size up in band width and cup range, when I tried it on it was too tight, the straps dug into my shoulders, and I found it came up awfully high under the arms. Try on first if you can. I will never buy bravado again, i got them ebacuse everyone raves about them. I like "YES" bras and I know continuum family in canada sells them, there were out of stock but they are 20$ and free ship in canada, probably only about 4$ to the states...

here is a link of all the retailers online or otherwise in canada and the us. Most places ship free and the price is about 24$ USD. It was designed by a vancouver mom to combine what she loved abotu several different bras. http://yesbreastfeeding.com:8080/yesbreastfeeding/retail.jsp
