View Full Version : Question for those that B/F longer term
When or did you start wearing normal bras again? Have yo carried on weraing nursing bras or switched back to underwired ones?
My boobs are too big to go in a proper nursing bra (or ones that I have found) so I have been wearing a sports bra but I really want to start wearing normal bras again, does it affect your milk at all? I have worn normal bras for short periods if I am going out but I am just so fed up with the sprts bras and I feel not very sexy in them!
I'm with you on that one! I wear cotton nursing bras and they are starting to get a bit worn out. I just can't see how I'd manage to feed in a normal bra though.
I stopped wearing them as soon as I stopped leaking and she stopped feeding every two hours :oops: I wear normal underwire ones and a nursing bra at night. I just yank it up or flop my boob out the top IYSWIM.... Can't stand those flimsy cotton things.
I've never had trouble with blocked ducts etc. I think you just need to be careful that it fits properly.
I still haven't stopped leaking :no: Costing a fortune in boob pads
How annoying... I was like that with my first. This time - hardly anything. I've got a spare box, shame shipping would be horrendous from here :laff:
I am still in a nursing bra, but I haven't found a problem with getting one to fit me (and I am in a 38K at the moment :faint: ). I am going to invest in a nice bra to wear when going out though, as I am fed up with my nursing bras. Maisie doesn't often need feeding at night anymore, so in theory I could wear normal bras then.
I just cannot wait not to have to wear a bra at night any more! I'm like a bloomin fountain by the time Ells wakes in the morning, it's grim! But like August Girl, I don't think I could feed long-term wearing just a normal bra. I've tried it and it means (yes, little pink piglet) floppin 'em out, which isn't pretty... :tongue:
I bf up to 18 months, but switched back to an underwired bra at 12 months.
BB I am so with you I have worn a bra for the last 5 months almost constantly I really wnat to stop now!
I haven't been wearing nursing bras at all all i do is slip my arm through the strap and pull it down.
By 10 months I was feeding her just evening and night (back at work) and wore normal bras (underwired) no problems. I have bought underwired nursing bras this time from Blooming Marvellous - you could check what size they go up to.
