I was thinking of buying a nursing bra or two before the baby is born, but I have no clue what size I should be getting. My boobs haven't gotten huge, although they have grown. I'm currently a 36C, so I don't know if I should jump up a cup size. Maybe get a 36D? Or should I be okay to just get something that fits me now? I personally like my bras a little on the snug side, I hate having a lot of room. Although I know I may use breast pads, hmm...
If you want to buy one now - I'd advise only buying ONE. Once your milk comes in your breast size may or may not change. And really - wait as close to your due date as possible to get that one - so you're within the return policy deadline just in case! Keep tags - keep receipts etc.
Also if you decide to get one - make sure you can fit your hand inside the cup which means you'll have a little room to spare. You don't want it snug now or it will NOT fit you later. But you don't want it loose either. Trust me you are NOT going to want your bras "on the snug side" when that milk comes in. Noooooooo sir.
I bought something called the "Ahhhh Bra" (you can buy them on HSN; http://fashion.hsn.com/rhonda-shear-...408268_xp.aspx) which is a strechie type of knit material similar to a sports bra style but not tight like a sports bra. It has been very forgiving throughout my pregnancy and I think it will be great as a first nursing bra. I am going to hold out on buying an actual nursing bra until at least a week after baby is born so my breasts have a chance to "normalize" or whatever.
if your currently wearing a 36c id buy a 34d nursing bra, but only 1 or 2 as you really dont know for sure what size you will really need, and your size will change quite abit over the first few weeks, untill your milk is settled
