nursing bra for small breasted women???

i'm looking for somewhere to get a new nursing bra for a small breasted woman that is not going to cost a fortune. i'm in my 5th month right now and i'm a 36A. most nursing bras go down to a 34B. the last time i just used a regular bra and it was so unconfortable and a big hassal when out in public. it also put pressure on my breast and caused a lot of clogging. so i'm not wanting to go through that again and want a better way to breastfeed. any advice???

  • I would at least wait until you're 8 or 9 months pregnant. I bought some bras when I was about 6 months pregnant, and I had grown an entire cup size by the time I had my baby. When I first got preg, I was in-between an A and a B. By 6 months preg I would overflow a B or could fit some Cs, now I'm a full C, small D.

  • I would wait until its time. Every pregnancy is different, and I am small chested but when I was engorged or full of milk I got up to a C cup, so the 36B that "grows with you" was perfect.

  • I would just wear tank tops with the built in bra. You can get nursing tanks or really any tank top with a bra built in. I just pull my boob over the top.

  • I am a certified bra fit specialist. Ha ha I had to take a class and get certified for my old job. 34B is the same thing 36A. They always say if you can't find your size, go up and cup and down a number or down a cup and up a number. So just get a 34B. Also, get soft comfy ones too that aren't padded or don't have underwire so it won't press up against you. Honestly my favorite nursing bras are from Wal-Mart. They do get worn out faster than other bras, but they are the most comfortable ones I have found. Plus they are cheap, so when you do have to get a new one, it won't break your bank.

  • I am a 34 A when I'm not nursing or pregnant, and around a 34 B when I am. I really like this one:
