Currently wearing very ratty very old John Lewis own brand nursing bras in 32D.

Wearing on middle hook. Cup size seems ok although the gore does not touch my chest at all at any point (non wired bra)

Measure 30.5" under bust 35.5" over.


Anita: Smooth Nursing Smooth Underwired Moulded
Size: 32C 32D 32E

Midnight Grace Maternity: Ava Plunge Nursing Bra
Size: 32D 32DD

Freya: Rosie Soft Cup Nursing Bra
Size: 30DD 30E 30F

Total price of your order: £241.50

Am now skint, and none of the feckers fit None, not one.

The 32" ones all felt very loose when I put it on just the band.

The 30" ones felt a bit loose?

A D cup seemed way too big in both band sizes.

I'm working on the assumption that a bra should fit snugly but not uncomfortably? Am I being too fussy?

Please, please help, I am getting a bit desperate now. I have a while to look as I need to wait for refund to come through, but I can't find any results on ugly nursing bras in a 30" back.

Dd is two by the way. I just had a revelation, should I just get normal bras and whap my boobs out the top? Would give me a lot more choice.

What styles would be best if this is a good idea?

DD2 is one, but down to one feed a day at bedtime. From when we were only doing nap-time, bedtime and nighttime feeds I went joyously back into my lovely lovely prima Donna and chantelle u/w bras. I unclip and hoick bra up as we're invariably at home in private!
Non u/w bras hardly ever stick to your breastbone,iyswim and at hysterically badly designed. Do Elle mcph ones come in a d?

Royce. Look nothing special, but FABULOUS. I used to have Hot Milk, but they are so big and and swamped me compared to the Royce ones.

I have the Jasmine

ThankS for the feedbAck. Im going to wait for this lot to be refunded, and then start again.

Probably not with nursing bras though, I have realised I only ever feed her at home in private, so I will just unclipped or hoick.
