Bras!

Ok so would love some rec on nursing bras AND sleep bras! Last time I lived in sleep bras, but they made me look like I had no boobs! I would like to have a decent bra for when
I leave the house, but I am really wanting a great quality sleep bra (cant remember who I ordered from 3 years ago). If it matters I will probably need 40C and @ least an XL or XXL sleep bra.
Thx!

I don't mess with bras at night. Too complicated ;). During the day I wear the ones from Target. They do the job. I HATE the two I got from Motherhood Maternity. OK, I liked the sleep bra I got there. I wore it around the house when DD was still teeny and I didn't want to put a shirt on. The sports bra-like nursing bra and the regular nursing bra I got from Motherhood suck serious monkey balls. The sports bra gives me mono-boob and the regular one does this weird bunching thing in front of my shoulder. I'm a 36D BTW.

This is why I fell in love with the sleep bra! It was a very soft cotton like a tshirt material and I could just pull the 'cup' down to nurse. Plus, i have to where a pad for quite awhile so I need something and I refuse to wear a regular nursing bra to bed! UNCOMFORTABLE!

I've always worn the nursing tanks from Target to sleep in. I'm a 34G and they work well. Not something I would leave the house in, but does the job.
For my "every day" bra I LOVE my Anita bras. But that's because I need some underwire for extra support. Wink I know lots of people love the Bravado bras.

I love Bravado. I have three of their bras, and they're better than any others I've tried. For work I always wore the one that I call the "fortress" because it has a removable pad that helps hide the nips. I teach high school - so I need something that will help me be discreet, especially after pumping when they stand out more. Here's my "fortress" http://www.bravadodesigns.com/shop/the-body-silk-seamless-nursing-bra worth every penny.

I have a Bravado, one from Motherhood and one from Walmart. IMO a bra is a bra. I love them all, but don't really prefer one over the other. I just wear whatever one goes best with the top I'm wearing.
I don't wear a bra to bed. The "sleep bras" (the ones that criscross in the front) don't work for me. My boobs constantly fall out if I'm laying down. Usually I'll wear a tank with a built in bra to bed.

I JUST stopped wearing pads! I'm so lazy. I slept on a towel for the first 5 months rather than putting on a bra at night Smile

I like the ones from Target - Gilligan O Malley. I can't find the exact ones I have. Mine have a kind of lacy stuff on the front but they're really smooth under your clothes.

And I got a great sleep bra from Kohl's like this:

I don't see it on Kohl's website anymore though.
I'm a C/D cup while nursing.
