Anyone have sites for nursing shirts?
Hehe Yeah, I hear ya. I had a Bravado in the beginning too. It wasn't much support and not as easy to unhook/hook as my new bra. I use the Bravado as a sleep bra now. The Change bra I have has underwire which I feel makes such a huge difference! I've heard that underwire can cause problems like blocked ducts but so far I've had no problems. Maybe it just wouldn't be a good idea if you were just starting out with BFing and your milk supply wasn't established and more regulated yet. To find a good nursing bra I would recommend hitting up a specialty mom and baby store as opposed to a department store or even a maternity wear store. This is a link to the store I have near me...
Do you have anything similar near you?

Thanks for the advice
I really would rather get a great bra, i have never liked the tops ive seen, thats why i was asking. I have one ill fitting nursing bra, cause I can't find one in my size, 34H, i am not big anywhere else so finding any tops that fit is a nightmare. I dont cover up in public, but would at least like to unleash the ladies with a bit more ease...right now its pretty much a show with the bravado i have.
I have a great nursing bra that I love from this brand called Change. It actually fits me better than any bra I've ever had. It's very supportive and also really pretty. It doesn't even look like a nursing bra.
For tops, I've never bought a nursing top. I've always felt that they're ugly. Just totally not my style and kind of pointless too. I either wear a shirt with buttons or I'll wear a stretchy tank top under a t-shirt. That way I can reach up the t-shirt and pull the tank top down and undo my bra (all without revealing any skin) and then I can bring my baby up to my chest and lift up my t-shirt (and my tummy remains covered) and away we go! :) no need for nursing tops of a nursing cover.
If you are really set on getting some nursing tops though, here's a link to a site that I think has the best looking (least frumpy) looking nursing wear...

A tip to save money, since so many maternity and nursing shirts are super expensive is to buy regular tops that are lower cut that you can pull to the side or wear a button-up top that you can just unbutton. Also, try wearing a cami under any shirt you have to lift up to nurse so you’re not exposed. I nurse in public and pump at work & never have any exposure issues.

Motherhood Maternity stores also have a line- Motherhood Nursing. Their tops are great for those of us who are top-heavy (Nursing turned me into a 38E). I fit into their Medium size! they also sell them at some Babies R Us stores.

I haven't seen any good inexpensive nursing tops, so I usually wear a nursing tank from Taget (about 16 bucks) which also serves as a bra (and I'm big up there as well and it supports me pretty good) and then just a regular shirt over it. I don't nurse in public because of body issues, but if I'm at work or at someone's house the tank still covers skin if I get walked in on (and it has happened!)
