View Full Version : Nursing Bras

Does anyone have any good recommendations for a nursing bra? I am usually a 40 H but I know I'm a little bit bigger now in my regular bras. The bra shop I usually go to doesn't have anything for nursing bras and I have no idea where to look.

I'm rather small chested but I loved the Bravado nursing tanks. I believe their bras are suppose to be similar. I'm not sure how well it works for someone large chested though... Sorry I'm not much help. I hope someone else can give you good insights.

I'm pretty small, too, so I don't really know any good resources, either. Stay posted. Someone will chime in.

I'm large chested, anywhere from an H to a K depending on the bra. The ONLY nursing bras I can wear are Jeunique and Decent Exposures Un-Bra. Nothing else that claims to come in my cup sizes actually fits my breasts. I use the latter at home because it's shapeless, but comfortable and I wear the former out because it actually holds them up.
Birth and Baby (http://www.birthandbaby.com/) is the place that Elizabeth here sent me to. I have been working with them for almost two years to find the right fit. I used to wear the Cameo by Coalesce bra, but they disappeared. I found out they are now Jeunique, but between getting pregnant, nursing, etc. my size is changing just enough that when I send for a certain size it's different by the time I get the bra. This place is great to work with and just keeps ordering me the other size to try. Unfortunately in bras my size there is a long gap between when you order and when it gets in. I just got the bra I've been waiting on since Feb. :(

I was coming in to recommend Birth and Baby, but miche beat me to it. They are absolutely awesome. Highly recommended. If you're confused after reading their web site and don't know what to order, call and talk to them. The owner is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Their shipping is free, so you can keep trying on bras until you find the right one, and they do have a pretty extensive stock. They've been really helpful on little things, too, like sending me an extra clasp when one broke on one of the nursing flaps of one of my bras - I didn't even ask for it, just mentioned in passing that it had broken, and there was a new one in the mail a couple of days later.

I was a G cup when nursing. I really liked Bravado. They have some nice new stuff as well. My favorite site is Mommy's Own (http://www.mommysown.com/shop/home.php). She is very well versed in bra fitting, etc.

I only needed a D, but have loved my Medela bras. The only downside is that for the larger cups, the shoulder straps are wider and show in a lot of shirts. VERY supportive though!
