Wired nursing bras?

Can anyone recommend a good padded, wired nursing bra?

Padding purely for nipple coverage, I don't need the extra volume!

[Disclaimer: just to get this out of the way, I know the advice is non-wired, but baby no 3 will be here soon and my boobs can't take minimal support anymore (I have always used the stretchy, non-wired, padded kind before). I know about correct fit and have never had issues with mastitis, blocked ducts or anything like that, but would obviously respond to those issues promptly if there was a bra related issue]

I just don't think they exist, do they? I love underwired but found nothing, though it was some time ago.

Freya do wired nursing bras. They’re not padded but the cups are fairly thick material I’ve found

The combo of padding and wire probably does make it trickier for access I guess (which is why I haven't just bought the kits to make my normal bras nursing bras, because they're too stiff). Will have a look at Freya.

Freya 'pure' appears to be padded and has
"Flexi wire" (whatever that means!). Looks quite structured though and along the lines of what I wear already so will give that a whirl! Thank you.

You can totally wear underwires, just make sure they are the correct size (probably larger than you think). Anita, Medela on Amazon and Freya tested and loved (breast pads for nipple coverage)

They do exist! I have a freya one but to be honest the padding just means the cup doesn't fold down out of the way so well.
