If you intend on bf'ing then yes. I had 3 but wish I had got 1 or 2 more as I was constantly leaking (even when using the pads) and spent my time trying to wash and dry them every day. I got grand plain ones in M&S, I think about €39 for 2. I wore them for a couple of weeks before I gave birth.

Hiya, You can get them in tk maxx and in debenhams. I saw them in tk maxx the other day for about 12 euro when i was picking up a maternity bra. which i might add was very good value coz i seen it in the bravissimo catalog too the exact one! the also do nursing bras in that catalog too. Hope this helps.

yep, i got a couple in debenhams and couple from bravissimo online think the debenhams ones are comfier though also have a couple from M&S (they were pretty cheep) but think might have grown out of them already with the ribs expanding! :eek so i guess i have 6 and hoping thats more than enough think the ones in debenhams were on sale too

I bought three all online, two v sensible and one a bit prettier (Elle McPherson La Mere). Felt three was enough before baby comes as you don't really know how big you'll be once the milk comes in... :eek

Thanks girls, might go get ones in a bigger size. Dont want them being too tight! I hear the poor boobies will be bad enough without a tight bra on too :ooh

i found the m&s ones rubbish but they are fine for the first couple of weeks. I went into arnotts and got fitted when ds was about 3 weeks. I emerged like a new woman. Proper fitting bras are even more important than usual when your boobs are on the large side!

Cool that's what i thought ! just that someone said they were wearing them before baby arrived so got confused!
