Recommendation please - nursing bra to wear at night for unruly boobs!

I'm currently wearing some M&S bras which I find lovely and comfortable in the day.

BUT at night, when I feed lying on my side in bed, the boob not being fed from makes a bid for freedom out of the cup (or succumbs to gravity) which means it comes away from the pad and I often end up very wet (I'm a leaker from the non-feeding boob in a big way!). I'm definitely not as pert as I once was and I need something to keep them in order a bit more grin

I've looked at the sports bra style in Mothercare as I thought maybe a bra with less definition might control the toppermost boob a bit better but thought I'd ask here for recommendations before parting with hard earned cash.

I'm not that big (38D in the M&S ones) but they're just suffering a bit with age and use smile

I used the mothercare pack of two crop top style ones. V comfy!

And do they keep things in place?!

I thought so, but then I wasn't hugely leaky so might not have noticed?

Hmm, ok. Might do a bit more research...

Which breast pads are you using? I had this problem but then stumbled upon Tommee Tippee ones which are much larger and seems to have solved the problem touch wood.

Bravado nursing bras are perfect for nighttime. I think they have a UK website (Bravado UK). A bit pricey but they are indestructible; mine lasted through three kids....I loved them for wearing to bed (but not as much for day as I didn't find them very attractive-looking under clothing)

I have a noppies bra that i sleep in, i tried the crop tops but always had an escaping boob! Like this one:

Bravado do good vest tops as well which I wear to bed - they have an inbuilt crop-top which is supportive and holds them in well smile

I have Anita cotton nursing bras, expensive but very controlling. Are you sure you're a 38D? If the cups are too small, norks do tend to fall out.

I ued crop top ones and sometimes would use a muslin square folded up on top of the breast pad for extra security
