    I'm going out tomorrow night (first time since he was born!!), and I want to wear one of my nice bras (lets be honest, the nursing bras ain't the most attractive!!).

    Will it be ok to wear an underwired bra just for 1 night? (forgive my idiotness, but I'm just not sure!!)

    I know your not supposed to wear underwired cause of it damaging the milk ducts but i wouldn't think one night should hurt.

    If its any consolation i've been wearing mine all thru this pregnancy and i only have i week left till due date but thats mainly cause i haven't got around to getting into town and getting some new ones fitted till now, i've actually got a nursing bra on now cause its new, fits and the only non-underwired one i have :oops:

    i always thought it was an old wifes tale that underwire bras damaged your milk ducts, like some one else said, the wire is under your boobs???

    i agree too, cant see how they damage milk ducts when they sit moreso on your rib cage :think: but i've heard/read it so many times.

    KIMBO - not sure about padded but you can get the t-shirt type ones, thats what i got cause at least if you wear a tight top you wont see the pads underneath the bra, thru the t-shirt :puke:

    Just got some from mothercare £15/18 each :shock:

    I *did* make the mistake of wearing underwired bras for a few days and I did start to get slightly painful blocked ducts (I had to massage them out). I only had 2 nursing bra's at that point and they were both in the wash so I just wore my late pregnancy size bra. It was a little small for me but I didn't have a lot of choice..

    I would think you would be fine for a night, I only started to get a bit lumpy after a good few days without a nursing bra. Luckily it wasn't that bad so I don't want to put you off, I went and got a couple more from Mothercare before it got really painful or turned into anything bad.

    I too didn't understand how the underwire could block ducts, but I know it did, so I won't be doing that again for an extended time in a hurry, unless as you say it's just for one night.

    Well I got an underwired, padded, nursing bra from Mothercare... :) So its possible.. :) But apparently the UK mothercare don't sell it anymore.. but I got it just before xmas so probably their stock has changed.

    Tbh my boobs hurt so much when I was breastfeeding I'd go for comfort above everything else... but the odd occasion isn't going to hurt.
