Oh definitely. I'm totally free at home (and am usually at home, lol) but I need something for church and the store and stuff.

Re: I need some new bras.

Oh one more item I have is the target nursing cami, I find it to be more restrictive than the barely there bra but its better than a bravado or something like that, I felt like I was imprisoned in a bravado bra when I had one they are so tight and compressing.

I bought the cami in the largest size I could find 2x and I normally wear a large top and it still was a bit pinchy under my breasts but it would work in a jam I think.

Re: I need some new bras.

I went and tried on a couple of Bravado styles today and did not like them. I need a medium for the band size and a large for the cup, and it felt barely supportive in the store, so I know that after months of use it will probably get worse.

The search continues...

Re: I need some new bras.

After scouring Amazon for hours, I finally settled on a Hotmilk bra and a Medela bra. Hopefully they will work out for me and I won't have to do the "return/exchange" dance, lol.

I like Bravado and HOTmilk, but once my supply stabilizes I actually like underwire so I convert my regular bras.

Re: I need some new bras.

I purchased the Elle Macpherson Intimates Maternelle Nusing Bra on Amazon and I love it. Very reasonably priced and lots of size options too.
