I've been BF for over a year and my bras are shot. I was using Motherhood brand but would like to try something else. What's your favorite bra?

My favorite was actually my nursing tank from Target. It made it easy to NIP and it was really comfortable.

My favorite bra is Bravado Original bra. For quick access sometimes I just pull one side aside without opening the clip.

I like Hot Milk best as well. They are really pretty and that is important - I didn't want to be in boring nursing bras all the time (especially since I've been nursing for over 2.5 years).

I'm on the larger size to begin with and it is really hard to find one that is inexpensive but good; however I have 3 that I got at Walmart that I have had for 15 months. They are still in good condition and very comfortable. They have them in all sizes and they aren't just white or black they have some that are really cute. You could also try Target if you prefer them. Hope this helps.

I absolutely hated the bras from Motherhood. I have several different kinds and had issues with all the ones that had underwire. Even new, they would poke into my side to the point where it was painful to wear them. The sleep bras weren't too bad.
I love the nursing tanks from Target as well!! They are the best. Very comfy and super easy to nurse in public. The ones from motherhood with the hole in the middle are just odd, especially if you have to wear the nursing pads b/c you leak. The medela sleep bras were comfy but didn't seem to hold up well over time with washing. Mine seemed to fray pretty badly. My favorite day bra to wear was actually from the Gap. Bought it online and it is super comfy. I loved their bras prior to nursing due to the underwire always staying where it was supposed to.
Here's the link for the one I got. I love it!!http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid...

I tried on every bra at motherhood and they were all terrible! I wear a 36DDD so I need something well made! I've been earing one of the Bravados (not sure which, but it has an underwire and some lace). It is ok for a nursing bra,but I would still like to find something better. When I'm not nursing, I stick to VS body by victoria...they had a nursing bra, but I waited to order it and they sold out and discontinued it!!

Love Bravado...well worth the money, comfortable, good support without underwire, removable pads...didn't try one until baby #5, wish I had known about them sooner.

Hot milk!! Also target has great nursing bras. I have big boobs so finding ones that fit can be a big problem.

i've been using leading lady bras and i love the molded seamless with lace lining. its one of the only nursing wirefree's i have the supportive enough to wear out in public (large ta-tas, i will NOT flop around in public lol) actually, i think they are having a sale online right now, but sometimes you can find some of their products like in jcpenny or gap or somewhere like that. i know their super lacy nursing bra is only at jcpenny

I got new ones at Target. They have a better selection than Motherhood, believe it or not! Even their sleep bras are better!

Hello Sarah! I love the Bravado brand. I bought it in Bellingham. It's $60 but well worth the price. I wear it all the time and its MADE TO LAST! Plus it is the MOST comfortable bra I have EVER owned, nursing bra or not.

I had trouble finding an inexpensive nursing bra in my size, so I ended up splurging for an Elle bra from Nordstrom. It was way more than I would normally pay for a bra, but it was so comfortable and cute too. It's by far my best nursing bra.

For value for money can't beat mothercares cotton nursing bras (although definitely try on before you buy if you can as I found sizes vary - even in a pack of 2 same size - they fitted differently!) They are very comfy, wash well and have lasted a year for me and still look good.

My favorite are definitely the Hot Milk brand. They're easy to clip back up with one hand, and they look good, unlike alot of the nursing bras out there.

I tried many different bras, but found the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra to be the most supportive and comfortable for me! I went from a size C to size E/F, and the bra's sizing is quite unique that it was able to support me through the changes. It is also very supportive and yet very comfortable that I wear it 24x7.

I really like the Medela seamless underwire bra. I like the tanks but find that they don't have the support I need. I will be nursing #6 soon & so I need all the support I can get.

I love my hot Milk bras. They are very cute and Comfortable. I avoid the ones that have a hole in the middle, (because I am larger and it hurts to confining). Target and Walmart don't sell my size so I shop for mine on line. I like www.Lindasonline.com They sell so many different kinds it's great. Good luck Hope you find the one.

I like the Medela bras. The JCPenney website has them and they do go on sale. They also come in the larger sizes that are hard to find.

I have loved the "lightly padded contour" underwire nursing bra from La Leche League. They aren't manufacturing it any more, but it's still available on several sites, and they are very durable. I'll be looking into the Target bras though - thanks ladies!

My $11 Walmart nursing bras are my faves. I've got a couple Motherhood bras, but I only wear them if I haven't had time to do my own laundry in a couple days. I had planned to use sports bras as well, but my dr told me it was a big no no because it can suppress your supply.

I have to agree that the Target Gillian O'Malley bras and nursing tanks were my favorite. Especially the tanks they are great for nursing in public and nice enough to wear alone in the summer

I personally love my motherhood maternity bras! I got some from walmart and some from target, but the motherhood ones are by far my favorite!

Believe it or not, the best nursing bras I've had were from Target and Walmart. :)

I honestly used a sports bra for a long time. My cup size was shifting so much between me being engorged or not that a structured bra didn't make sense.

I prefer nursing tanks. I have three Gilligan & O'Malley tanks, and they're great! I usually wear a cardigan or button-up shirt over them.

I got a few from Wal-Mart...$15 (Canadian) each and I like them better than the "nicer" Mommy and Me ones I got at Sears. I don't know what brand they are, but they were just on hangers on an end, not in boxes. :)

I love Gilligan & O'Malley bras from Target. I've always wanted to try the nursing tank, but haven't ever gotten one.
