Please tell me they aren't that important. I've tried on a ton and can't find one that fits...its either waaaay too small or I could smuggle naval oranges in the cups. I'm frustrated and about fed up with it :?

Your b**bs are gonna get bigger when your milk comes in. I didn't buy any till the day I left the hospital, I found that the fact that I could unsnap just one side to feed. I just bought some at Walmart last time and I found they were crap.

Walmart has these sport bra types of nursing bras. They were amazing when I BF. Plus they're only like 12 bucks.

I just used a regular bra or sports bra. I bought the nursing ones but to me it seemed like they just got in the way hanging there.

I was just trying on some from that brand, but the ones with the underwire. I absolutely requre an underwire. Their c cup was so tight it cut my b**bs in half but their d was 5 times bigger and literally folded over when I moved my arms. I know I'm going to get fuller, but I just don't trust that I will get THAT much bigger.

I just don't wear a bra. I never have. And honestly bras are what make your b**bs saggy.

This is not true. Gravity and weight makes b**bs saggy.



ETA: Yes, I've seen the studies, but seriously, giant b**bs are going to sag no matter what.

That is part of it. But wearing a bra too often weakens the muscle that holds up your b**bs. Which makes them sag as well.

I have to have nursing bras. Found mine at Herberger's. I don't actually like the ones they sell at maternity stores, I HATE any padding in them. I don't need any more freaking padding!



ETA: Sports bras don't work for me since they just give me 1 massive uni-b**b.

But I have smallish ones so that works. OP if you have bigger breasts I would suggest a bra in moderation and a sports bra or a sports nursing bra would be the way to go. The ones from Walmart are reasonably priced and I heard they are comfortable.



ETA: This is why I added that mine were on the smaller side.

I can't imagine not wearing a bra. It would feel soooo strange! Even when they were smaller and perky, just nope.

I can probably count the times I have worn a bra on both hands. I hate them. Especially in the summer. Which is when I started getting b**bs as a teenager and when they grew during my first pregnancy .WAY too hot.
