I have been looking everywhere for a supportive nursing bra. Can anyone help??!!!

I'm a 38DD so I need wide padded straps, 4 hooks on the back, etc. I've tried Motherhood Maternity, Medela, wal-mart and a website called Breakout Bras. Any suggestions?

  • I never used nursing bras. I went to Nordies and got a fitting and wore regular bras the entire time I have nursed (14 months). I am a 34G

  • Try using a sports bra...they are comfortable and breath...also easy on the wallet.

  • SEARS.. thats were i found my favs and there priced well. like 14$. I'm a 38DD when not nursing. I once went up to a F while nursing. I nursed both my kids, the best support (I need alot) were the ones that flap open, like pull down, still having fabric around the breast. (it looks weird, but you still get support when feeding). NOT the bras that open and the whole breast is out. Those ones just didnt give me enough support. Good Luck! Congrats on BF!!
