When to buy nursing bra?


Hi everyone, you would think I would know this being my second but as I didn't breast feed first time round, I honestly have no idea. I'm planning on breastfeeding this time and not sure when to buy some nursing bra's. I've also not gone up any cup sizes despite being 30+1, with my first, I went up 2 sizes by the time I was nearing labour. Does that have any affect on being to breastfeed do you know? (Sorry, probably a daft question!)
Thanks!

I've just bought a couple last week from H&M, I didn't want to buy maternity bras then later on buy nursing bras! My boobs have doubled in size so I don't think they can get much bigger now! I'm 34 weeks.

I didn't like nursing bras with my son as I felt they gave me no support whatsoever and contributed to saggy boobs! But I may just have not bought the right size. But any time you want, really - maybe just buy one in case you do have a sudden growth spurt shortly before or after baby comes.

I've always had fairly small boobs and they didn't get much bigger until after I had my son and my milk came in. Then they probably went up somewhere between 1 and 2 full cup sizes. It won't affect your ability to feed at all, I always had tons of milk even though my boobs barely grew while I was preg.

Thanks ladies. That's exactly what I was thinking, if I buy them now and then go up a size or two after Babys here. I've read it's best to buy them before and to buy them after so was a bit confused. I think I'll buy one or two now then wait and see what for after.

I totally get that Blake, it's expensive enough isn't it, having to buy maternity clothes plus everything you need for baby, never mind buying new bra's constantly. I must have spent a small fortune on new ones with my first lo as I went from a b to a DD with her then back down to a b not long after she was born! This time round, no change at all albeit a bit fuller.

Thanks Talia, that makes me a feel better, it's probably a silly worry but was a bit worried it meant my milk wouldn't come through properly.

Yeah totally, I was trying to refuse to buy hardly any maternity clothes and just get normal clothes in bigger sizes (cheaper!) but I haven't been heavily pregnant in winter before and it's turning out to be pretty necessary to invest in stuff haha.

No no, don't worry about that at all your milk will come in fine regardless of size

If you currently have nice, well fitting maternity bras I'd wait til your milk comes in. I have big boobs anyway but they were on a whole other level when the milk came in!

I have fairly big boobs at a D, but they've just doubled but other than that I haven't really gained weight anywhere else other than my bump! I feel so out of proportion!

I've bought the stretchy non wired bra tops for now, not particularly sexy but comfy and you can easily go up or down a cup size without changing bra. Will get nursing bras when baby comes x

I've just bought some non-wired ones for now, a lot more comfortable than the wired ones I normally wear. I know what you mean, not best thing but comfort over style anyday of the week now. That's a good idea for the bra tops, can I ask where you bought yours from? x
