Just wondering when I can (finally) get back into normal bras again! How many milk feeds had your LOs dropped to when you made the switch back? Or did you wait until you'd stopped BFing altogether?

I waited till I stopped bf altogether tbh. I hated my nursing bras.

Jacob was about 18 months at least before I started wearing normal bras again, although that was more down to my own laziness than need!

I waited till we finished BFing completely (LO was 19months) and then treated myself to a load of new ones, with wires & everything! My feeding ones were seriously knackered by then :-)

After a few weeks! I very rarely wear them, they give me no support whatsoever.

As Ally said - when we were down to just a morning and night feed. I had to wear them when I went back to work so that I could express easily.

I went back to work last week, so on work days I wear a normal bra. As I'll not be feeding while I'm there. Then I change into a nursing bra to do the evening feed, or I have to take my bra off entirely. I'm loving having some lift and shape again, but nursing bras are v comfy!

Erm, 6 yrs and counting here. Have had 3 children in that time though and still feeding the youngest (14 months) morning and bedtime. I promised myself that once I stopped feeding the 1st I would treat myself to a trip to Rigby and Peller. But there hasn't really been enough time between stopping BF and getting preg again and I want to make sure they are settled to a size that they will stay at so I will wait a while after finishing feeding before splashing out. Until then, lovely clippy bras it is.
No. 3 is definitely the last so maybe, just maybe I'll have some lovely new bras by Christmas.

I'm now down to a morning and a night feed and have just today thrown my nursing bras in the bin- couldn't wait to see the back of them! If I'm lucky enough to have number 2 I'll definitely be splashing out on some Hot Milk ones as mine were just awful!

Hmm I may be in them a while yet then! I have an underwired nursing bra (I converted it myself) but its been worn to death! Trying to work out if I should squeeze a bit more from it, buy another to convert or just switch back to regular bras. The Bravissimo catalogue arrived this week and I really miss my pretty colourful bras. Not sure I could bring myself to buy one to hack it apart though!

I switched about 10 months. I'm currently wearing cheap t shirt bras as I just pull the cup down and they do spoil over time so don't want to waste too much money!

I bought my 1st normal bras 2 weeks ago! I only feed 1st thing in the morning & last thing before bed time (usually) so decided it was time. It was so strange going back to underwired bra, feels so tight. Being measured was fun too, completely changed size from pre pregnancy!
