Pretty but cheap nursing bras

I wasn't originally intending on breastfeeding but circumstances meant it was for the best, plus my little boy has a brilliant latch so the transition was surprisingly easy. He's only 9 days old but I'd actually like to continue for a while. I'm busting out of my current bras so am going to get measured tomorrow.

Is Debenhams or M&S the best place to get measured?
I'm on a budget so where's the best place to get some bras? I'd like some pretty and comfortable that are also affordable...any suggestions?

Thank you!

I've tried loads and really recommend H&m for comfy nursing bras! I've tried measured nursing bras but to be honest always went back to the more comfy crop top style bras as some days I felt bigger than others. I have lots of these... pink

redthank you. What is the sizing like? It comes in small, med or large but I'm between a size 10-12 at most and my noon are HUGE,easily somewhere between a 34-36 and F or G cup!

Very generous cup size, I'm a 14/16 and a DD cup usually but sometimes bigger, I got the large and they are super comfy so I'd go M if I was you. There's 3 or 4 rows of back adjustment and plenty of decent strap adjustment too. I find they are supportive enough. I spent a fortune when feeding dd1 as I bought Hotmilk bras and they were so uncomfy and didn't wash well, not a patch on these IMO. For the price it's worth giving them a go anyway!

I buy the emma jane nursing bras which go by band size and are a sort of one size fits all in the cup size, I get them from eBay for around £10.99 each. I also love H&M nursing vests which I wear to bed or under a normal top - they are £19.99 for 2.

I wouldn't recommend the Mothercare sleep bras, very tight and uncomfortable. Though reasonably priced.
