I just got the size that fit me the day after I had my daughter.  Sometimes the bra was a little tight when I was full of milk but it wasn't unbearably tight so that worked for me.

I never used them ukulele nut right now. They bothered me when Im full. Lol I wear a cami tank to there flexible I can wear under anything and its comfy and when I'm full I'm not UN comfortable. Works for me. And I have a nursing cover for in public so for me the difference between a bra and tank top is easy.

I had nursing bras. I paid big money for them. You really don't have to buy them. It is just as easy to lift your bra when you nurse if not easier. Get a bra with stretch.

I would get fitted for one afterwards. Maybe order a size up for now.

I got mine after baby was born. I actually got mine at Target on the clearance rack and they happened to have a sale on the nursing bras back in Feb.

I got mine at Walmart and it was incredibly comfy and easy to unsnap. I'm a 38C normally and got a 40D 3 days before I was induced.

I can tell you what I didn't like with my first. I got a wired bra (hate wires but the boobies sag) with just a slight amount of padding (thought it would be good to have a backup if nursing pads leaked). It unhooked at the top of the 'boob triangle' to fold down. However, it was like folding a piece of...well, not cardboard, but the padding made it very stiff & bulky. This time around, I will look for less is more- overlapping thin fabric that you can just part.

Hey, I love "ukulele nut."  I'm going to need to find a way to work it into conversation... "My breasts were full like a ukulele nut..."  :)
