Preloved nursing bras -yay or nay?

Pretty straightforward,
Would you wear somebody else's old nursing bra? There's no way I'd wear someone else's knickers for example, and a nursing bra is likely to have been in contact with bodily fluids. Breast milk seems a little bit less "grim" though I suppose.

It's a specific bra I want. Not moulded or anything so won't be out of shape. Two new bras are £80 ish, found two used/excellent condition online for £10.
Hot wash and a bit of laundry cleanser?

Or is it just a definite no??

I think it's fine as long as you wash them properly, I suppose it's only like a second hand or hired breast pump.

Logical hat on, absolutely nothing wrong with it, bit I'm not always logical, and I wouldn't

I'd do it at that price. Worst case scenario you look at them and change your mind but you're only £10 down.

There's nothing wrong with it, you're not going to come to any harm. But I personally wouldn't, I'm fortunate enough not to be totally cash strapped and would find it a bit unpleasant.

When I had dc1 I made a friend who has a baby at the same time. When I had dc2 she gave me all her baby clothes and her nursing bras! I thought it was a bit odd unexpected to include the bras but they're great and I'm really glad she did! So I'm a convert and I'd buy them.

babyname you see I'd borrow a pump from a sister or friend, but I probably wouldn't buy one second hand etc, but that's because they can't be properly immersed and cleaned.

Might just chance it and hope to get new ones in post Xmas sales??

I think it's fine, not really the same as knickers.

i would without a doubt.

I would, and have. Better things to spend my money on!

I did.
No way I could have afforded posh comfy bras as i careered through multiple different sizes.
eBay was my friend!

I'm wearing a secondhand nursing bra right now

I wouldn't personally, but I also wouldn't spend anything like £40 per bra.

I bought a couple of hot milk nursing bras on eBay, thought nothing of it!
