Maternity/Nursing Bras?

Postby PiscesPassion » Fri Jan 04, 2013 12:42 pm

I'm having such a hard time finding maternity bras!!! I'm currently a 42D but both band and cup are getting snug. I am looking for a sleeping bra and a daytime bra.. I hate underwires, so that's out!

I'm confused because I dont want to pay too much for a bra I will only wear a few months, only to need a bigger one after baby is born.

Which brand is good support for fuller figured women during pregnancy and also at night to sleep in but not too expensive???

Also.. I know there are many maternity/nursing combo bras out there too... suggestions on that???

Thanks :)

If you can manage, I'd skip specialty maternity bras, or only get nursing ones. It's hard because you can't really predict what size you could end up needing, but I know my boobs aren't as big as I thought they might be. They also sell these bra extenders that give a little bit extra, which I have found really helpful.

I agree with the previous post. I just went with nursing bras in a cup size bigger than I normally wear. I don't like the wire on the sides, so I wouldn't recommend them.

For sleep nursing bras, I wear these:

They do come up pretty high in the back on your neck, but that doesn't bother me.
