I need to buy a few and am looking for recommendations.<br><br>
Thanks!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
My favorite nursing bra at the moment is a <a href="http://www.tadpoles.ca/index.cfm?action=ViewDetails&ItemID=397&Category=116" target="_blank">Nummies</a> bra. I bought it a couple of months ago from my friends' business and I'm very happy with it. It is an underwire, which some people don't like, but I'm not at all prone to plugged ducts or anything and I like that my boobs are up where they used to be. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> DH's eyes also bugged out the first time I modeled for him, so that's never a bad sign either!
I wear an H and bought a Medela nursing bra when DS was about a month old. At this point it is absolutly falling apart. I'm very dissapointed in it, and wish I had put the extra money into buying a higher quality bra. After two months I'm shopping again...
I have the Fancee Free, I forget which model but it has the foam inserts for support. It's the only non-underwire bra I've found that supports my 38J boobs and doesn't let them hang down around my navel.

<div style="font-style:italic;">I love the Bravado Lifestyle nursing bra:<br><br><a href="http://www.bravadodesigns.com/product.asp?ID=17" target="_blank">http://www.bravadodesigns.com/product.asp?ID=17</a></div>
I second this! They are expensive, but hold up well and are very comfortable! They run a little smaller than the usual bravados. The website had great sizing info!
I really like the microfiber nursing bra at Motherhood/Pea in a Pod. It is awesome but $$$ (aren't all bras though?! ugh). I am 34b so definitely on the small side <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
Just to put another option out there my favorite bras are not nursing bras. I buy a crossover cotton style that I can easily pull the cups to the side and I have also modified some of my favorite bras using the directions by Jan Andrea on the Web.<br><a href="http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/index.html</a><br><br>
I have never really found a nursing bra that fits correctly and gives me the style options I am looking for. Since I need a lot of support and a larger cup size the only nursing bras available to me tend to be $45 and up. At that price I can't afford as many as I would like to have so I have learned to make do with other options.
I'm in the same boat as the OP, looking for nursing bras. I like the style of the bravado w/ the snaps but the bra itself doesn't fit me too well, I'm a 44C and their bras are either too small or too big. I've tried corsierre, too short for my torso. Elle mcpherson is cute but doesn't come in my size<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> . I'll probably go back to regular bras & just pop the boob out.
I've found the bras sold at Motherhood to be fine - and they are very inexpensive if money is an issue for you like it is for me.<br><br>
Most times, though, I wear a nursing tank under other clothes (or alone if it's warm enough). My favorite is Glamourmom.<br><br>
I'm also looking. I've always had trouble finding bras that fit--even before pregnancy and often simply went without. I was 36 barely A and am now at 34 wks pregnant and 40 barely B. (hey, maybe I'll be a real B when the milk comes in?) I'm thinking about trying a Bravado lifestyle. I don't want underwires, don't like those soft bras that feel like you might as well go bra-less and have a hard time finding cups small enough that are also set wide enough apart for my broad shoulders/rib cage.
I have bought about 5 different nursing bra's from Target. I love them. They are so comfy. Plus they were on clearance recently in my area.<br><br>

mama to 3 boys and 1 girl due anytime now
<b>Torio</b>, I am also very small, 34A but woohoo a B when nursing!<br>
I bought the Bravado original bra in small 4 years ago for DD and it fit me perfectly through almost 3 years of nursing.<br>
It is still in really good shape, but I was looking here to find some recommendations for regular snap in the back nursing bras that are good for very small cups. The one thing I don't always like about the bravado is the fact that it is like a sports bra and is very comfortable, but can get really hot too. I don't need that much support. I was thinking about trying their new "lifestyle" bra.<br>
Any other small mamas tried these out? I will check out motherhood too.
My everyday workhorse nursing bras are the Playtex ones with the underwire alternative. They're pretty basic, comfortable, great clasps, and long-wearing. I get them for about $16 at the Playtex-Hanes-Bali outlet.
