    Is there anywhere that does them cheap? except secondhand on ebay?!

    Been on Mothercare website and they're £25 for 2 and M&S are the same. Had a look at Matalan and asda but no joy there either.

    No primark nearby even though I've heard they have cheap ones.

    It makes me so mad that anything pregnancy or maternity related is soooooo bloody expensive when I have so many other things to buy for baby :growlmad:

    Any ideas would be much appreciated ladies!

    It's not fair all of these shops only do up to a certain size and as soon as you start looking in diff places for the bigger ones u can defo add at least 10 quid on top of those prices!!!

    Thanks for that ladies I'll try tesco tomorrow, we don't usually shop there and there's a bigger matalan nearby too so will try and have a look there as well :)

    I bought two sets of pairs from Debenhams which were £25 each. Nursing bra size is 36FF so I suppose that is a bit more readily available but my maternity bra size was 32FF and I could not find that size anywhere other than at Debenhams.

    It is annoying that maternity and nursing bras are not more reasonable priced.

    I think I remember someone mentioning the nct shop being reasonable. I'm a 30ff so my 1 nursing bra has cost me £28 :-( if anyone can recommend big sizes that are cheap id appreciate it.

    which is why i would never buy a maternity bra, as a normal underwired does the same job for fraction of the price

    Maybe you can get a cheap sportbra? They're nice and comfy.

    £25 for 2 is cheap I think!!! You know they'll wash well etc. I usually pay up to £20 for a normal bra from m&s or La Senza and they're so much nicer than cheepos like New Look but I have had a couple from Tesco and they did fit quite nicely too...

    Hey I got a couple from Ebay but not secondhand! Brand new & I think they were about £10 for two? It's worth a look, I wouldn't be wanting secondhand ones either but they have plenty of new and tagged in all sorts of sizes. x

    I'm planning on bfing for a good while so would rather pay £25 for two and get a nice comfy one and a good fit. Some 36D fit me, others do not. Lucky you if you can just pick up ur size or order off the net and know it will fit ok :)
