I am looking for a few cheap nursing bras to pop in my hospital bag.

With DC's 1&2 I spent a small fortune of them, only for my boobs go up 2 cup sizes 2wks after the birth and to have to buy more!

Has anyone found a good deal?

Just marking my place as I need to buy some too.

As a large chested lady myself (34G before pregnancy) I struggled to get good maternity bras... but turning to the ever trusty eBay was the best thing I ever did!!! I found some in big sizes for around £7 each grin

Not exactly cheap but there is a Bravado nursing bra (available from eg that covers a range of sizes, I think two back sizes and 3 cup sizes - so not particularly supportive but it does cover that stage in the early weeks when milk comes in & your size can vary.

I read somewhere that you can just sew poppers into your maternity bra to make it a nursing bra.. having spent a small fortune on bras for now I might try that until I go up a few sizes more!!!

Thanks for all the tips.

I am just home from a long and pointless shopping trip.....5 shops, NO BRA!!!

Mothercare, the woman measured me and announced I was a 40 (or 42) D. I was wearing a very well fitted (bravissimo) 36FF at the time so I thought better of buying one there!

H&M only had nightime ones in stock and don't sell online.

M&S didn't have any above a D cup instore.

House of Fraser 'don't do maternity'......I want a nursing bra, not a maternity one!

Matalan said to try online.

So online I go.....
