New bra after breastfeeding

Not sure if I should ask this here or in infant feeding!
I have more or less stopped breastfeeding, just doing night feed and first thing in the morning. I am going back to work soon too.
I would very much like to ditch the horrible nursing bras as I don't need access now and buy some new ones.
Is it worth getting measured and getting some new bras or is my size likely to change again in a few weeks? I can't afford to spend a load of money then have to do it again in a month or so. I feel like the size has settled during the day at least!
Sorry if I've asked a silly question!

I fed just morning and night for about 8 months after my daughter turned 1, then dropped to one feed for another few months after that. At the beginning of that year I was back to pre pregnancy size, and by the end probably one cup size smaller. I don't know what would have happened after I stopped completely because I got pregnant again.
I wore underwired bras all the time with no problems at all.

Thank you lovecats. If I'm likely to be the same size for a year then I'm definitely going bra shopping!
I think I might just buy a t shirt bra and a pretty one (think I deserve it after so long in maternity/nursing bras!) and see how I get on.

Just make sure you're fitted at somewhere good- bravissimo, john lewis etc. wired bras will prob be a diff size than you're used to wearing in nursing bras.

Off to Bravissimo in the morning then!
