i'm currently wearing <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMotherhood-Maternity-Light-Support-Nursing%2Fdp%2FB000T8D276%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dapparel%26qid%3D1273377720%26sr%3D8-2" target="_blank">this</a> bra to sleep in, but am finding that it doesn't give me enough support to keep my nipple lined up with the nursing pad. i sleep on my side, my boobs are size dd (more like boob, ha! the other one is probably a d <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">) and the top one migrates down to the side of the nursing pad. the same thing happens when i wear a nursing tank to bed.<br><br>
any recommendations on a bra that's still really comfy but will give me enough support to prevent waking up with a big wet spot (and a dry nursing pad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">)?

I never found one myself. My best options were folding 2 receiving blankets into boob-sized squares and stuffing them into my top, or just sleeping on a towel.

This wasn't my favorite nursing bra (because it's so structured and the clasp is a pain), but it's suitable for sleeping in and it might help with the issue you describe: <a href="http://www.medelabreastfeedingus.com/products/intimate-apparel/292/comfort-nursing-bra-nude" target="_blank">http://www.medelabreastfeedingus.com...rsing-bra-nude</a><br><br>
NOTHING moved when I was wearing that bra.<br><br>
Are you sure though that the issue isn't with your nursing pads? The ultra absorbent disposable Lansinoh ones cover a pretty wide area; they covered the entire cup of a sleep bra similar to the one you linked to. I didn't try cloth (other than diapers stuffed in my bra) and they were the only disposables that worked for me. I was also a DD postpartum and had a crazy oversupply.
