Help me find a non-vile nursing bra for my heaving 34F bosom :P

I am 20 weeks pregnant and am venturing into the world of nursing bras.

I was a 34 F pre-pregnancy and my size hasn't actually change - my boobs have just got a bit fuller in shape. However, I notice the market for 34F nursing bras divides into a) pretty but hideously expensive and b) just plain hideous

I would like something that gives proper support and not the monoboob saggy look that seems to be common in the nursing bra world. I love the likes of Cake Lingerie and Hot Milk but are there any cheaper equivalents?

Elle McPherson has done some lovely ones - they aren't cheap, but they made me feel pretty when nursing at a 28GG size. It's really worth spending the money on them instead of forking out twice for crap ones and I know it's a struggled to get ones in a large size for cheap.
Also, don't buy nursing bras until you're about 37 weeks as your breast are likely to carry on growing. Go and get fitted at a proper shop like John Lewis; they're trained in knowing which sizes and styles work best

I got fitted at Bravissimo, am currently in a Panache 34ff nursing bra. They had 3 types. The other two came up really high so would have been a pain under certain clothes. So the Panache was best for me. I have it in the pink and the black.
