“It was like a soft sports bra … I never got tangled up trying to get it on and it was really gentle with my ‘now I’m full, now I’m not’ nursing breasts. It was just fine under tees going out and about when my milk came in. When I was less engorged I only wore it at home and at night, opting for more support during the day.”

— Nicole Leigh Shaw, 36, blogger at Ninja Mom, and mother of four, Fort Wayne, IN

Available now on Amazon for $29.98 (pack of 2).

“It’s comfy, breathable, affordable, and comes in a wide variety of sizes. My jugs changed size when I nursing, so finding a bra that was the right fit was really hard. I would definitely go with something affordable and durable over expensive and pretty in a nursing bra. At least for me, this was a straight up utility bra.”

— Julie Miner, 40, blogger at Rants From Mommyland and mother of four, Washington D.C.

Available now on Amazon for $24.00.

7. A Pea in a Pod Seamless Clip Down Nursing Bra

“I was actually a nursing tank fanatic. Slept in them, layered them under my clothes, never had to worry about buying different bra sizes for those wild early weeks vs. later when my boobs eventually calmed the hell down … My favorites were by Glamourmom — totally worth the splurge for the extra-long style to cover that postpartum belly.”

— Amy Corbett Storch, 35, mother of three, Washington D.C. and blogger at Amalah

Available now on Amazon for $59.00.

9. Gilligan & O’Malley Women’s Nursing & Hands Free Pumping Cami

“I loved these tanks because I could wear them out or under another piece of clothing and have easy access for feeding. Miranda was a summer baby, so going for a walk and coming home, being able to nurse her was very easy and helpful with these nursing tanks.”

— Sharon Kucyk, 31, mother of 1, Freehold, NJ

Available now from Target for $24.99.

10. Anita Nursing Bra

“I find the Anita brand to be the best and well worth the extra expense. For one thing, they are prettier than most nursing bras. Plus, they fit to perfection as they magically stretch with engorgement and provide the right coverage. I have one I wear a few days a week and after 20 months looks just as nice as the day I bought it.”

— Kirtley Ceballos, 31, mother of one, Denver, CO

Available now on Amazon for $39.00-$64.00.
