Nursing bra question This ish is bananas TTC since Mar 2014; 1 child; Georgia 1774 posts

so, I have to buy a nursing bra online since no where around here sells them...my question is, do I need to buy a size bigger for when my milk comes in, or will them size I'm in now be fine?

my hospital lactation consultant gave me 2 for free so you might get one when you give birth

okay, thanks. I will check into that. Are nursing tank tops supportive enough that I could just get a couple of them and not bother with a bra and just wear a shirt over it when I go out?

I bought bras before i gave birth and that backfired- my usual Bs went up to a D.
Also i personally love tank tops with the shelf branthat is built in. They are more comfortable than the ones made for nursing.

Its hard to say. Some women get bigger and I never grew at all. I bought a cup size bigger since that was the recommended thing and they were huge.

oh, wow! I'm already in a C so I don't want to get a D or something and it be too big. I may just wait on that and use my tank tops with the built in bra until I know for sure what I'll need! Thanks!

Yeah, that's what I was going to do...its so aggravating that no where around my little town sells them so I have no other choice but to buy online :/

I am 46DDD(F) so no stores carried my size and I had to order online.

Hmm well I went up two cup sizes. But everyone is different. I used the bra tanks and I loved them but not super supportive. I would wait, to buy them just in case. I liked my bras to be really supportive because for some reason when it wasn't I let down all the time and was leaking. Maybe it is just a problem I had, but I wanted mine fitted well.

Your welcome, I hate wasting money and it is something you never know. :) But I made that mistake this time around, With my other three I was a larger cup starting so I went up two and no big deal. Well I went ahead and bought a feew because I have gone up two sizes already, and I don't have milk in. I may be buying more when I have this guy. But I guess for a few months I was comfortable! :)

oh my gosh! I haven't had to go up a size but I did have to get new bras that covered more if that makes sense? I'm already a C, and I just cannot imagine having to buy a D or DD!! I don't like wasting money either, so I'm definitely waiting!
