I need some new bras.

I could look all over Amazon and do free shipping, free returns, etc. but thought I'd pick you ladies' brains to narrow it down a little first.

The nursing bras I've used before have had a good life, but after 4.5 cumulative years of nursing, I think it's time to retire them. I think I can squeeze some money in next month's budget to get some, but I haven't a clue what will work for me.

I need a 34E and do not want underwire. Other than that, I'm pretty open. If you have a recommendation, it would be helpful to know if that brand runs big or small in the cup and/or band or whatever to hopefully minimize my returns.

Thanks.

Someone on another board suggested I go try some on in person, so I'm going to go do that tomorrow and see if there's another brand or style that might work better for me. Or size, even. I might be totally off on my size, lol.

Re: I need some new bras.

Not sure if it's an option for you, but I really love being bra free, haven't worn a bra at all in months and was a very limited user prior to that. So much more comfortable and healthy too there are bras called barely there which are nice if you don't want to go bra free but want freedom of movement and a more natural level of support. If I absolutely have to wear a bra that's what I have available, but I have only worn it twice since I bought it cause even that feels restrictive compared to nothing.
