The one thing I am going to buy for myself this time around is nursing clothes & Bras. For almost 2 years I EPumped for my last babe and this is my personal reward (never mind a healthy toddler<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">). My hubby asked what I wanted as a HUTH (hanging up the horns) gift and I said new clothes and nice undergarments. Well since I don't really want to spend that $$ on maternity clothes that I will just grow out of in a month I decided to spend it on nice nursing garments that I will enjoy wearing out and about while NIP. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I am starting now to think about the few I want to pick up for directly after the birth (possibly a nursing tank and soft comfy bra) and then the nice stuff a few months after when I loose a bit of the baby weight and get the hang of nursing.<br><br>
Any suggestions??? What bras and top companies did you love the last time or have been eyeing but never splurged?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> And what things could you just not live without?

I'll say this. I never liked Bravado because the elastic on their cotton crossover bras would ride up and fold over on me. But, they have a new collection of microfiber bras and I bit the bullet and tried one. I really love it. It's silky, very comfortable, supports well, looks good. I don't know about "sexy" but it looks good. Totally different from their relaxed looking cotton ones. I like it.

I love that one!!! THANKS<br><br>
And also I have to add this...Victoras Secret now sells <a href="http://www2.victoriassecret.com/collection/?cgname=OSBRPMATZZZ&cgnbr=OSBRPMATZZZ&rfnbr=4756" target="_blank">nursing bras<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:</a> and they are CUTE! They seem to go from a 34B-40DD and you can buy them on-line and then ship them back if they don't fit. Sadly you have to pay for shipping each way but what I do is buy more than one size, one up and one down from what I think I will need and just know that I will have to pay the return shipping on the ones that do not fit. Also it saves me the gas to and from VS since I live about 40mins each way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">.<br><br>
But still this is exciting news for a mainstream totally sex orientated store, now all they have to do is start selling them in the store also!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Those are super cute. And I especially love the HOTmilk cherry set.<br><br>
The smart alec in me has to say though, the victoria's secret nursing bra model? She does *not* look like she just had a baby. ;-) Then again, I guess her baby could be older, and she has gotten back her hot bod. ;-)

Vickie Secret is selling nursing bras? Wow! I'll have to look into that. Love it! FYI: I look in Vickie Secret catalogues for outfit ideas too.

Great find! Thanks!<br><br>
RE: Nursing clothes, I bought a few nursing-specific shirts and things but found I didn't really wear them all that much... good nursing bras are a must, though.
