Does anyone know where to find nursing bra clips in the UK? I intend to convert a normal bra to a nursing bra but can't find where to buy clips.

Note: Instructions for how to do this are on Jan Andrea's US-based site (and other websites.)
The website linked in this MN thread is now shut down (no surprise after reading the thread).

Hi, i bought myself two non wired bras when i was pregnant and then thought of buying two more nursing bras but realised i could convert my non wired bras into nursing bras simply by cutting the strap near the cup and using an extention strap as the clip.
You can buy the extention straps on ebay in different colours for just a few quid or less, then cut them and stitch onto your bra.
Sorry i cant be more detailed, but it's simple enough to work out, just too long to type out! Hope i helped?

There's a seller on ebay (search nursing bra clasps) selling 9 for about £6 including shipping - I'm not a customer, but they seem to have lots of good feedback.

John Lewis do plastic bikini clasps which do the trick.

Thanks narmada. I don't see them online but will try the haberdashery section instore. I'll be near a JL tomorrow so that would be ideal.
