I went in to get a professional fit for nursing bras. 2 firsts for me as I've never been officially measured by a 'bra fitting expert' and I've never needed to purchase nursing bras before. I have purchased a few maternity and sleep bras in the past couple of months, but as I've heard it's worth it to spend money on nursing bras, I wanted to make sure things were going to be a good fit. Word of caution, nursing bras can be very expensive! I walked out of Nordstroms with 2 nursing bras and $140 charged on my credit card. $140 on 2 bras!! Most popular styles, but really?! Will be performing a little experiment to see how similar styles of a $16.99 Gilligan & O'Malley bra from Target and the $58 Elle Macpherson nursing bra from Nordstroms compare.
Of course I expected to get a bigger rack during pregnancy, but ahem, wow. And I'll get larger after Buddha Baby arrives? Yowza. I never thought I'd be seeing the letters DD or E on my delicates before.
One brand I've been told to check out is Bravado--I guess Village Maternity at U-Village carry this brand and it only costs around $50. As I'm all about comfort, would prefer to avoid underwire, I may need to check out nursing camis, but I guess it will depend on how supportive they are. Lots of great nursing bra comments and tips on this offbeatmama post.
