Dh is taking me to motherhood maternity for nursing bras this weekend. I am scheduled to have my csection not this Sunday but next(9 days). I'm very afraid of getting the wrong size bra. What if one that fits me this weekend won't fit when my milk come in next weekend. I remember my boobs getting huge with my last baby! So how do I know what the right size is?

My breasts changed size for the first 3 months. Get a cheapy now and get a good one later

That's what I was thinking I might do. I remember them going back down to my normal size when she was a few months old.

This! My baby is 3 months and my breasts have finally stayed the same for awhile. They will be very big and engorged at first, but once your body adjusts things settle down lol. The bras I bought when he was first born are a little big now, but I still wear them because I'm too cheap to buy new ones!

Go to target and get a large cloth one. they're very comfortable and you don't have to worry about ruining a nice bra. I got mine a cup size larger than my natural size. Give it a few months for the feedings to even out before spending the money on a nice one. The local consignment store near my house sells them too at a really good price. I sold my motherhood nursing stuff to them.

Thank you for the advice!!! I didn't want to spend a bunch on bras that weren't going to fit in a couple months.

Smart! I would say you are safe to buy nursing tanks now though. I have one in every color and at home sometimes I just wear those with pads instead of bras. I still leak everywhere without nursing pads!

Thank you. I suggested that to dh but he just doesn't get it! Lol! I really don't want to waste money. I do want good support though because my boobs are already big:/ I am a 32dd on a 5'6 127lb(prepregnancy) frame. I'm going to need good support!

I've always been smaller chested (I was a d while nursing at my largest).

You know a good option if you want to go to motherhood too is to get one of their sports bras. That way you have great support but you also have more ambiguous sizing.

I use nursing tanks underneath. My regular shirts. I find it easier to nurse.
