Where do you buy nursing bras?

This is my first baby and I'm looking for cheap, comfortable, nice style (hopefully), nursing bras...where have you bought yours? Are the nursing pads also necessary? If so, where do you get them? Please include brand, store or website, and price. Thanks for the help.

  • I didn't buy a nursing bra or pads yet. Im 30wks, to save money.... you can take maxi pads and cut a circle out and put them inside your bra .... WORKS AMAZING!!! I am the same about trying to save money!!

  • I got my nursing bras from walmart for like $8. I don't have large breast so they suited me fine. As for the nursing pads not ONE single of the cheap brands worked for me. I had to buy Lansinoh from walmart for about $7 or $8 dollars. Please get your bras and pads before you have your baby or you'll be looking like me sitting and talking to family with a wet t-shirt on,lol!! I wasn't producing milk at the hospital and the milk just started coming all of a sudden. I had no idea I was leaking,lol!

  • I went to Walmart for my bras and pads. They're pretty cheap. The nursing pads came in a pink box by the baby stuff. Don't remember the price, but they are pretty handy because you have a tendency to leak milk all over without them. (I made the mistake of not wearing them once, my hubby and I were out to eat and when it was time to feed my son, my boobs started leaking. I had to wear his coat to cover my wet shirt. LOL)

    I think my bras were about $12 each but I bought the ones without underwire (they were plain looking, no lace or pretty stuff). Also I didn't get very big in size....if you have big boobs, the bras will be spendier.

  • I usually just shop Walmart. I can't remember how much the bras cost but the nursing pads can range from about $5- $10 depending on the brand. I have used almost every brand of nursing pads and my favorite is Lansinoh brand. I like to save money too and I know they're more expensive but they are definitely worth it. And the pads are necessary if you don't want to leak through your shirt. lol

  • Walmart in my area discontinued maternity/nursing bras.
    Ya pads are necessary, but go for the cheap ones. No need for spending lots of money on them.
    I go to destination maternity, they just built a store in my area. But they only go up to size F, not sure if you are bigger. But i am 7 1/2 mo pregnant I was a DD b4 i was pregnant and am now a F. Remember to get it with growing room and very comfortable. Getting black always makes it look sexier. GL

  • I got mine at Target for about $12 and I found some reusable/washable nursing pads for about $4 I hope they work but figured better than buying boxfulls!

  • I've been having a horrible time finding a nursing bra. I found the most perfect one though I love it. See I have big hooters so I can't go to babies r us and buy one. I can tell you the Medella ones definably didn't work for me. Those were horrible! The one I found and I absolutely love is from Target. It's so pretty with lace all around which is hard to find for a nursing bra. Check it out...


    Pads you can find t Target also. Make sure you get the ones with stickies on the back. After a while you won't need them.

    Good luck!
