Target and Walmart have nursing tanks that you can wear under any shirt to help with discrete nursing.

I like to wear nursing tanks under regular shirts.

You can wear nursing pads in your bras or tank tops to help with the leaking.

Look up the two shirt method on youtube. That's how I learned to nurse in public and what to wear.

Two shirt method!! You can combine any regular shirt with a nursing or regular tank. I never wore a bra and just put the breast pads right on the tank to prevent leaking.

I always wore nursing tanks under my regular shirts--flap down, shirt up, baby on and no one is the wiser.

For the leaking, nursing pads will help quite a bit.

I bought my nursing tanks at Walmart for 13.00 a piece. Target also has nursing tanks but they were 30.00 a piece. I've seen some nursing shirts at Burlington Coat Factory & Motherhood Maternity.

 The absolute best nursing bras I used were actually Hanes (or Fruit of the Loom, don't remeber) sport style bras.  They're soft, stretchy, supportive; and cheap to replace when either you wear them out or they don't fit.  I'm pretty busty for my size and they worked great (I was a 38DD last time I nursed, started out as a 32B when I got married).  That's what I suggest.  Oh, and nursing pads; I used Lan...???somebody's for my first three, I don't remember them having adhesive on the back, but I used Johnson's for my last one and they have a little sticky tab on the back, so they stay put; it took a little doing, but I figured out how to position them such that they caught my leakage both right after a feeding and when I was full or engorged.  Also, I had some Gerber reusable ones from a friend (I wanted to give them a try; I would make sure to have disposables on hand for backup/ NIP until you pin down how many you need/want to use for your nursing and laundry schedule).
