    Hello ladies :)

    I made the huge mistake of buying nursing bras when my boobs suddenly expanded at 11 weeks.

    I got fitted yesterday and they've gone from a 32C to a 36E :shock:

    The ones in mothercare are so expensive, does anyone know where to get some relatively reasonable priced nursing bras?

    The lady also told me off for wearing under wired!! :shock:

    xxxx

    Underwired is fine as long as bra fits properly if it doesnt can damage tissue.I haven't bought my nursing bras next as people keep telling me to wait till 35/36 weeks but will see most places have maternity sections online now Tesco Asda matalan next etc so I expect they will do nursing bras x

    I'm still wearing underwired as I've got very heavy boobs! and dont like non underwired

    as long as they dont dig in it's fine :)

    I have got non underwired for bed though, bought one from mothercare for £18 (is a nursing bra so can use afterwards when feeding) and also got a cheap one from Asda for about £5

    If you are worried about underwire but prefer them a lady fitting me said just go up a back size so theres no chance of being too tight.

    I agree though maternity stuff is expensive! I wish Primark would hurry up and do a huge range

    Thanks for your advice :)

    I wish I could still wear proper bras! I've been in nursing bras from 30 weeks as normal ones were just soooo uncomfortable, then when I got measured at m&s she told me off for not coming earlier.... Oh well haha! The m&s where I live didn't have much choice if you still want to have a nice looking bust though! I agree Primark NEED maternity & nursing lol!x

    I would invest in soft stretchy ones for now like bravado and then remeasure again once supply settles around 6 weeks after birth

    Tapatalking so cant see signatures

    I got 2 pairs for £30 from John Lewis. Not the cheapest but a great fit. I got measured at 37 weeks and I got told to go down a back size and up 2 cup sizes for when your milk comes in. My milk came in on Tuesday and the size is perfect as my boobs are huge!!
