Nursing sleep bras
I'm thinking of getting a nursing sleep bra that would be light support and some coverage. I want something really comfortable. I have sports bras, but can't stand to feel constricted like that all day. Any suggestions?

I love the sleep bras from Motherhood Maternity. I'm a C/D cup (depending on how far PP I am :giggle:)... they don't offer enough support thhat I'd go out in public wearing one, but they're awesome for around the house. Super comfy, supportive enough, and soft.

I found the Medela sleep bras very comfy for sleeping. As above, they are not super supportive but are nice for around the house and night time. :thumbsup:

I was a 32F while nursing and these were absolutely miserable and uncomfortable for me. If you have a small(er) chest and a larger cup, they WILL not fit. :(

I used the tank tops in the link with nursing pads tucked in, and not only were they more supportive, but they are super comfortable. (at least for me) :) I can't tell from the picture in the link, but the ones I've purchased in store have comfy shelf bras inside. It's easy to just drop a strap and nurse.

I have 5 of the Motherhood sleep bras and LOVE them. I bought them with DS1 almost 3 yrs ago toward then end of my pregnancy and used them for the first several months and I'm 33 wks pregnant again and have started sleeping in them again already. They don't offer tons of support but enough and they're not restrictive. I was a 32DD before pregnancy and I have a mix of small & mediums and they both fit comfortably right now.

Another fan of the Motherhood sleep bras. I've become spoiled by them and hate wearing "real" bras :)

I have a couple Duo maternity sleep bras from JC Penny that I love. 2 for $24. I'm on my phone or I'd link to them, but they're the ones with the lace trim. I think like any sleep bra they're not very supportive, but super comfy. I slept in them in early pregnancy and have worn them about every day since DDs arrival. Super easy to nurse in too.

Probably typing one handed while breastfeeding. My smartphone can't fix it all.

Re: Nursing sleep bras
I second the sleep bras from JC Penny. I have 2 of those, and 2 from Motherhood Maternity, and they're the exact same bra. Only JCP is 1/2 the price!
