Yes the nursing tank tops are very useful and helpful and I am probably going to purchase a few more I love them so much! Especially with summer approaching and all...

I need to look for those tanks at Target! They sound perfect for when we go to DisneyWorld in a couple months, and I have no choice but to nurse in public all the time!

As for the leaking, I had that happen a lot right at first, but it's gone away almost completely by now. I still use the breast pads, but more out of habit than necessity.

I have tank tops from Target with built in bra that unsnaps for feeding time... I need to buy a few more actually. My "girls" (lol love that by the way me and my mom call them "our girls" too, lol).

My breast size has increased a lot as well I went from C36 before pregnancy and now I'm D40 and it's very uncomfortable... I remember when I was a teen and wished my boobs were bigger... LOL, guess I got my wish, hahahahahaha!!!

Anyone leak a lot...? I feed her constantly and still leak... lol it's kind of annoying. I have breast pads, THANK GOD... Other wise I'd be embaressed as well..

I've been using Moving Comforts Fiona Bra, It doesn't have underwire and offers great support for large breasts.

If you need a larger size Motherhood doesn't really carry them. I bought the largest size sports bra from there per the sales reps suggestion pre-birth. Well now I'm up to a 36H and that thing is a joke.

I have to order online now. Highly recommend breakoutbras store breakoutbras.stores.yahoo.net/matern
it
ybras.html
for the larger endowed among us. I haven't tried any of the sports bras yet, but the other ones I've ordered fit great. I usually do a strong support normal bra and a tank.

Of course I'm also just starting to get serious about losing the rest of this baby weight so might have to order something new myself.

I know this post is kind of old, but I'll throw in my 2c--Moving Comfort is a great brand of sports bras, and they do carry the larger sizes. I found the Maia model in a sports specialty shop awhile back before I was pregnant and LOVED it--SO supportive! (I was a big girl even before nursing--now it's just ridiculous! LOL) You can also find them at movingcomfort.com. They're a little pricy, but worth it if you're large and need support. Plus, they're high quality and last a long time. I've had the first one that I bought for at least 2-3 years now and it's still just fine!

I bought 'Champion' sports bra in thier largest size and though its a bit tight, I only wear it while running and bring a nursing bra to change into right away afterward. I find this really works and you don't have to buy another specialty bra. I just checked their website and the bras are on sale right now for $19.99! www.championusa.com/Champion/Default

Double up with two sports bras and possibly even a built-in bra tank. It also really helps me to feed or pump prior to running.

I had the same problem with pain the first time I tried running after giving birth. I also started using two sports bras, and it makes a world of difference! I don't have anything fancy, just some cheap ones from wal-mart, but when doubled up, it's quite comfortable :)

Good luck!

I bought cloth diapers from a company a few months ago and am on thier mailing list - they sell much more than just cloth diapers...

just yesterday I got an email saying they are having a 10% off sale on nursing bras this week.

Here's the link:
Not sure if any would work for sports bra or not but thought I'd pass this along for anyone interested.

i'm naturelly a 32DD-- while nursing and an H-- yeah... we have to import them for europe! lol! emoticon anyway, i would actually tell you to go to a sports store if you have the money and get fitted and get a really good sports if you are that big- it will help alot, if you are planning on nursing for a while it will be worth the money. if you are broke or not planning on nursing more then a few weeks- i'd say wear a sports bra and a tank with a bra top-- i do that and it works ok. good luck!

I do my walking or running right after LO goes to bed for the night, when my supply is at its lowest. I also got this tip from my OB -- wear two sports bras. I am 38D while lactating and the two bras really help me stay comfortable.

I'll second the motherhood.com for sports bras. I'd also like to suggest to nurse and lighten the girls up before you run/walk. Nursing is the only time I have anything on top to flaunt and I have a much harder time when running when I'm full.

Good luck!

Hi,
My baby is now 6 months old and I still have about 15 more pounds to lose. I haven't been doing any cardio, since 'the girls' are much bigger than they were before the pregnancy (36DD) and it's fairly painful to do anything aerobic. Does anyone have suggestions for good sports bras? I'd like to be able to start jogging or running soon...
