Going shopping this weekend and need recomendations...

For a good bra while pg please? Any suggestions? I will be nursing so was told if I get underwire to get a very good fitting one so I told clog ducts? TIA!

By the way, I nurse w/ ds for 10months so I need a nice bra that will be sure to give me a good life. The saggy look isn't too pretty! lol

I would just go ahead and get a nursing bra. Many here have recommended the Playtex soft cup nursing bra, which you should be able to find in many department stores (Click here to enlarge Someone correct me if i'm wrong). Motherhood Maternity bras are pretty much crap. I have one underwire from there that snaps at the cleavage and I like it, but the cotton one I got didn't even last through one baby (nursing 17 months, but still! Click here to enlarge) and it wasn't very comfortable.

Cool thanks...Someone else told me MOtherHood was crap when it came to bras. You know I have nursing bras from when I nursed ds. I should give them a try before my shopping trip. I think they might be a bit loose or saggy in the areola area but will try! Thanks!

I like the bravado bras, but they supposedly give you uniboob if you have big knockers. You can order them off the internet.

I also recommend the Bravado bra.

I've been wearing them for 7 months now, and they're working great! They don't offer as much support as other nursing bras, but if you're not running anywhere, then it should be fine. (But then, I'm a D. Ugh.)

Good luck, it took me forever to find the bra that was right for me.

Motherhood bras are definitely crap.Click here to enlarge

I preferred the playtex bras with the underwire alternative. (no actual wire, but extra fabric support.) They were especially easy to refasten one handed.

I think it depends on the size of your breasts, though. I know some women who got very large feed bags when nursing, and said the playtex bras weren't supportive enough. I never went past a D and had no problems with them.

it has a hook and eye opening, but I never use that, I just pull the whole cup to the side to nurse.

I got one at sears. I can't remember the name. I got it when I was pg. It is a nursing bra. It was a Gma bra but very comfortable and supportive and idnd't hurt my back. It is alo the easiet nursing bra I have found to unhook the cups one handed. I have went back and got a few more of them.

Solstice,
Kohl's carries the Leading Lady brand, but doesn't have a good variety of sizes. I just picked up some up the other day. Ahhhh!

My biggest fear is that there is no PMS and that this is my personality.

I loved the Bravado bras and the Playtex. I found snaps hard to manage especially in the between the boob/cleavage area. Playtex was easy and I could push the Bravado out of the way.
