Nursing Bras

[deleted account] ( 16 moms have responded )

I'm struggling to find decent nursing bras that support while not costing an arm and a leg, any suggestions? My daughter is now almost 8 months, and I would like to nurse for another 4 months, but I can't seem to find good nursing bras that last. I originally bought 4 Medela bras, and now only one of them is still in one piece. I'm having a tough time since I need big bras(38G or H). Suggestions would be great! Thanks

I am so glad i stumbled across this thread. I have a 10 wk old and already my nursing bra is falling apart! It's driving me crazy. I bought it from walmart for about 15$. I'm a 38 G/H. I live in Canada so we don't have a lot of the stores that you guys mentioned(Target, Kohls). We have a Motherhood Maternity here, and the bras are still close to 35-40$. Do any of you ladies know where i can get a good nursing bra in Canada and not pay 20$ just for shipping(which is what it is from www.glamourmom.com)?

I also bought a nursing tank at target and I LOVE it. I wear all the time. I am in the range of a 36 E-G and i totally understand. The tank is really durable and comfortable and easy to use. Their bras were not bad. the underwire came out really fast but other than that it has held up nicely.

I loved the Glamourmom (www.glamourmom.com) tank tops and Bravado bras (www.bravadodesigns.com) I had. I found some Glamourmom items on eBay, so you may consider looking there. I was 42/44 G/H and know it's difficult; you may not be able to get away from spending more. Get at least 2 more (4 if you can) bras to make it through.

Ahh yes Kohl's is a great place to find Maternity Bras and PJs. The PJs are the ugliest things ever to look at, but they are comfy and so super easy to breastfeed! Esp. those late night/early morning drowsy feedings!

I've been nursing for six months now. I purchased four nursing bras from Kohls (I believe the are Motherhood Maternity brand) and have worn them nonstop. They are extremely comfortable and still look great. I believe They are $32, but they are often on sale for 50% off. That's how I got mine. Good luck.

Hmm, I have been nursing for 6 months, and am in the DD range. I purchased several inexpensive padded nursing bras from Motherhood Maternity for around $16-20 each. I really dislike disposable inserts, can tolerate padded inserts, but ultimately found the padded nursing bras to be the easiest to work with. BTW, I have tried several other nursing bra brands with prices ranging from $35-$55 a pop, and one nursing tank at $65. Funny, how the MM bra is the one I found to be the "best" for me.

The ones I bought from Breakout were Fancy Free and they have lasted well.

I got some decent ones at Target! I am very busty and was totally uncomfortable in the wireless ones. I found some with underwire at Target, they were only 12$ each and they fit ok. They aren't built to last very long, mine kind of wore out after about 4 months of constant wear. But thankfully we don't nurse forever, right?

Sounds crazy, but I found some nursing bras at Target. Reasonably priced. I've been nursing for 9 months and haven't had any issues yet with the bras. They even have tank top ones..

I got the four Medela bras from Breakout, and I liked them, but I spent so much, and then they fell apart. Anyone know about the Bravada or Bravado bras?

ugh I hear ya... I can't seem to find a great bra so I just buy cheap ones and then wear tank tops underneath all my clothes for extra support. I wish I didn't have to do that but nothing else seems to be working.

try www.breakoutbras.com I have ordered from them twice and have been very happy. They offer free shipping and the prices are good. I have two bras that I have been wearing non stop for three months that are still in decent shape. They have many sizes.

I'm with ya girls!! I have a 4 month old and have totally busted out 2 bras. (I'm a 38 DD+) To be honest, I haven't measured since I had her! I just keep looking down and seeing the underwire coming out my shirt!! So annoying!!

I would be willing to hear some responses as well. I have a six month old son and haven been through so many bras already. They wear out so quickly and are cheap...I really need one that supports without being restricting...also I am getting used to being 36 DD...
