Padded nursing bras?

I have always been tiny-boobed, until I started BF and enjoyed a few sweet months of being a C cup (am going to cut out the size label from one of my nursing bras and frame it grin). However, DS is 7 months and weaning, and although I am still BF my boobs have shrunk to almost my pre-preg size. I used to wear padded bras pre-preg but these aren't nursing ones, and I'm missing my enhancement...can anyone recommend any good nursing bras with a bit of padding? I've tried M&S ones but they don't fit.

I got one from Mothercare lurcher, I'm not sure about their sizes but might be worth having a look. Had to laugh at you cutting the label out - mine jumped from B to E while pg and I went for a second opinion because I couldn't believe it smile

Oops, should point out that it was a 2nd opinion on the measuring grin

HotMilk did some lovely ones - almost push-up in style, but I don't know if they still make the same ones I had, as they change the styles each season - worth a look though. M & S also do a lightly padded/moulded t-shirt type nursing bra with no external seams.

Mothercare nursing t-shirt bras

Sorry just saw you already tried M&S - but have a look at HotMilk and see if they still do padded ones. All their bras are gorgeous anyway.

Bravado do one with a little padding but they are £££s! I haven't had the padded ones, but I get on really well with my other bravados especially their tank tops.

Do you have to wear a nursing bra? I am an AA and after a few months wearing unflatterring nursing bras with ds1 I just removed the wires from some of my padded t shirt bras (but you can get some unwired padded ones I think)-Primark do £5 ones that are miraculous. I simply hoiked the bra cup up or down off my boob and baby latched on. I never wore a nusing bra when I fed my twins.

Also, once you find the right size and type, keep your eye out on ebay for bnwt ones for a lot less ££ - there are shops on there with old stock from mothercare.

I find the Mothercare ones good - was an A cup pre pregnancy and only a B cup now (dd is 10 weeks). I've found them a godsend - am lopsided as well as small, but they give a good shape and I can happily wear fitted tops again smile. They have a few different colours and styles.

I love these bras. From M&S but not nursing bras - Like defineme, I just hoik my boob out of the top... Padded is good as it stops leaks and looks better than pads. They are comfy and look great!
