Converting a regular bra into a nursing bra.


I just found a great kit for converting your normal bra into a nursing bra!
I was getting fed up of my granny nursing bra with boobs round my waist as my boobs are so big I cant get a nice nursing bra.
Just ordered this kit : http://www.motherwearuk.com/userimages/procart14.htm

Wohoo I'm so excited to wear a normal bra again and have boobs in the right place!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I have real trouble getting normal bras to fit, nevermind nursing bras! Why do bra designers assume that nobody who is breastfeeding has a back size below 32"? I'm a 28" back and with preg/BF cup size is up to an H from FF/G. I have 2 nursing bras (one of which cuts in like cheese wire) so I wash n wear!

I was considering doing a hatchet job on my old bras, but instructions on how to would be great! Need to do something as I'm in this for the long haul and one decent bra aint going to cope!

I struggle with them having cups big enough. I'm a size 14 with 34H boobs. Nightmare! And the nursing bra I have got make them go round my waist and I have to wear a very high cut top to hide the bra. Even a normal round neck top is too low for this dam bra! Can't wait for my kit to arrive so I can wear nice clothes outside again! lol

Its not that bad apart from the bra thing! Remember, sometimes when you go down a back size you go up a cup size
