  • Victoria secrets have good nursing bra's, Also I wore a lotof  spaghetti-strapped sport bras. This is not a nursing bra, but I absolutely love the fruit of the loom t-shirt bra, there is no under wire, so you can easily lift or move to theside for breast access, it is very stretchy and comfy.

  • Victoria's secret bras are high quality and barely stretch. I want one of their nursing bras but had to get a strapless instead, but those work too. There are a little spendy but I think they are a good investment because they last a long time. Don't wear out like other bras. I love them!

  • Freya and Panache (about the only thing that I can get in my size). I order from and Breakoutbras is the nicest to work with, but I like the stuff at figleaves better.

  • wacoal. you can get fitted for them at Nordstrom. the great thing is if you take it home and use it for a bit and you don't like it, you can return it, no questions asked. they are not too expensive either ($50-$100 each)

  • I hate bra's so I loved Blue Canoe organic Janes bra (it looks like a yoga top or sports bra)
    now I love shere assets at target, they are like tank tops hold my belly in and supports my breast no bra line. and I have been nursing for almost 7 month without any breast issues, with my second son, I wore a push up under wire bra and ended up with breast infection. I'll never do that again!
