Looking for pretty, sexy nursing bras?

Do these exist? I usually get my nursing bras from Motherhood Maternity, and they're fine, but I really miss wearing pretty bras. Different colors, lace, matching panties. Do these exist for nursing? I figure if I'm going to be BFing for at least another year, and it's time for new bras, I should get some I really like.

I have some made by You! Lingerie. I love them! I have a black/hot pink lace and a leopard print/hot pink lace. I got them from zulily. They are a little pricey usually, but if you watch zulily, they have some really good deals on cute nursing stuff. You just have to keep your eyes peeled.

Hot Milk. I have 3 and love them. I found them on sale on one of the discount sites, but don't remember which one.

HotMilk are really nice. Babysteals or Zulily has them pretty often and you can get them for a good price.

I don't buy "nursing bras." I buy bras I like and sew on nursing clips. I have a wonderful supply of lacy bras in tons of colors.

Can you show a pix? I was thinking of doing this but not sure how. Do you cut the bra to make it open easier? Or just add the clip.

You only cut the bra strap. When checking to see if a bra will work, attach the bra in the back and adjust the straps accordingly. Then, take 1 arm out of the strap and pull the cup down. If it easily comes down (Most stretch lace does) you know it'll work. You can buy bra clips online.

Using Kamsnaps. I've never done it that way, I prefer the "real" nursing bra clips.

Using Swimming clips. I have a few of these style clips. I hate them because they can't be put back 1 handed.

I've bought form here. These clips seem to hold up well.

You could also use this method to convert any camisole into a nursing cami.
