I know this topic has been up several times, but I'm reviving it again, lol. Any good nursing bra recommendations that are NOT the Bravado? I can't find the Bravado in my size.
I was going to order the Bravado from Lane Bryant's website (it's not sold in stores, only online), since they carried it in plus sizes. But now the website only carries it in black in one size (42/44) so that won't work.
I went to the Motherhood Maternity website and typed in my measurements, and the website says I'm a 38G. I think I could wear a 40DDD or 40F. (I've heard you can go up a bandsize and down a cupsize, and end up with a similar bra since G is hard to find.) So I called around the local Motherhood stores and found one that carried the biggest sizes in stock since the website has a horrible return policy. It was an hour's drive, and the sales lady was a jerk. She measured me and said I measured 43 around, and that I needed a 42 or 44 bandsize. She also said my cups were a lot smaller. So I tried on the size she recommended, and of course it didn't fit. The band was huge even on smallest setting and the cups were pinching too tight along the top edge. She was really opinionated, and wouldn't let me try on the size I wanted. Basically said she did this sizing job for a living, and knew what was best for me, and if I didn't agree then I needed to find a new store. I walked out with nothing and just started crying in the hallway of the mall.
So any other recommendations? Baby is only 10 days old, I know I might need new bras again in a few weeks, but I'm desperate for something now. I'm living in ill-fitting bras when I have to leave the house, and not wearing one at home. But going braless has me uncomfortable and leaking everywhere, this is no fun!
