That moment when you just want some thing to last more than just a couple of months. Yeah that's my luck lately. I have had 4 nursing bras break on me in the last week and none of them were over 2 months old. One I got from the maternity store didn't even last the 1st day I wore it, that was just the strap and I got my money back for that one. Every single other one the underwire has broke through...Gah!

Underwires are not recommended when nursing.  They can contribute to clogged ducts and mastitis.  So, maybe try to find one without the wire.  Yes, you can get a decent, larger size, bra without an underwire.  (I'm a DD when nursing and NEVER wear an underwire.)

So frustrating. I hope you can find something that will work for you soon.

I've never had nursing bras with underwire. Interesting! Mine are good old walmart ones and they've lasted me 5+ years!

Yeah I had several with out underwires and when I look in the mirror and it looks as though I'm not wearing a bra at all there's a problem. I also had complete strangers telling me that I needed to wear a bra so yeah the ones with out the underwires don't work for me

Don't know  what size you wear, but there's a Just My Size style that gives really good lift without the wire....

This is the one I really like:  http://www.justmysize.com/plus-size/bras/just-my-size/jms-satin-wirefree-bra
