underwired & moulded cup feeding bras?

Does anyone know where I can get really supportive underwired feeding bras? Or at least a moulded cup. (in a size 34e or above) With dc1 many moons ago I had a fab underwired, front-fastening gossard bra which was perfect even though it wasn't designed as a feeding bra. they don't make them anymore and I cannot bear wearing one of those feeding bras that give you a uniboob, boobs at your waist, make you look fat etc...

I have the Anita ones, they're good! Pricey, but good.

Second the Anita ones -- with DS2 I've also realized they have the best clips of any of my feeding bras -- easiest to unclip/do up again when bf out and about and you can't see what you're doing smile

I wear ordinary 2 for £8 moulded cup Asda bras blush but my youngest nursling is 21m so I'm not going to advocate them for new mums!

I just drop the strap off my shoulder and fold the cup down to feed. TBH I find it easier than a bfing drop cup bra but if I had another baby I would use them until at least 6m if not a year before switching to an ordinary bra.

If you do go with an ordinary underwired bra make sure that the wire completely misses any breast tissue and doesn't pinch or feel tight anywhere and you don't have the dreaded 4 boob look.

I have the Elomi moulded cup/underwired ones, they're really supportive and give a good shape. I bought them from figleaves.

I have the Anita ones too. They are great, So much better than the non wired ones which are just so saggy. I have 30I boobs blush

The Bravado Bliss is great and doesn't even look like a nursing bra. It's got a 'flexiwire' which feels like a drinking straw so the shape is good. Their sizing is a bit weird, D/E F/G & H/I, I reckon the F/G would be your best bet. HTH smile

Just seen this thread. I wondered those of you who have the Anita bras, in the pictures they look like they don't come up as high as some other bras. Do they sit more like a normal bra?

I hate that the cups on my Royce bra come up to my shoulders almost. It makes clothing so difficult.

Yes, they're roughly the same line as a normal full cup bra. So they'll show more than a normal balcony bra would, but about the same as a standard bra, IYSWIM.

I got one from Debenhams, it's a Miriam Stoppard one and very supportive even though it's not underwired. I wish I had got fitted for it months ago instead of living in my horrible non-supportive saggy bra.

Thanks guys, I really hate my current ones and am trying to decide what to get. It is difficult to get my size too.

Yes the Anita ones are fab. I get mine from that website that twinklegreen linked to, they are very helpful and accept returns up to a month after purchase.

I've looked at that website Ali, it looks like the best place for me to buy from as they have lots of sizes and are not too expensive either.

I'm just wondering if I should leave it a little longer until my breasts settle down. DD is almost 4 weeks, and I don't get engorged any more, but not sure if this is the size I will stay.

I would buy one decent bra and handwash every night. Then you can remeasure in another month.

IME the size you are when your baby is about 12-14 weeks is the size you stay, unless you lose a lot of weight.

Thanks Ali that sounds like good advice.

Eglu, the Deco bra by Freya is great for BF in its so plungey that you just flip your boob right out. smile you don't even have to drop the strap its a moulded plunge bra and goes up to a GG. But its generous i am a 32K and wear this in a 34GG with the back taken to make it fit better. if you are an E cup you could easilly wear this one.
