Nursing bras were never a problem for me. They’re not the best and I don’t feel like they’re flattering, but it’s worked. The biggest problem I’ve faced bra wise was finding a pumping bra for when I went back to work. I ended up using this strappy contraption [link]
The biggest issue I’ve faced is people that give me the side eye or confront me for breastfeeding in public without a cover but a healthy dose of not giving a fuck will take care of that.
It looks ridiculous, but this worked wonders for me. I could wear a normal nursing bra or tank, or go bra less and then just hook this around me when I pumped. I didn't mind the putting on and taking off since I didn't have to undress.
Hey, if you find one let me know! I’ve just been slowly adding bookmarks for things I find along the way! Being plus sized has made this pregnancy so much more difficult. I can’t just walk into a store and find what I need. Also, the coronavirus is stealing to fun and joy out of the parts of pregnancy I could enjoy.
I saw someone post this on another pregnancy subreddit. It looks like it could possibly work for larger sizes. I thought for the price it might be worth a try.
This one looks super weird, but works for me. I use a spectra pum, but it's universal. It's only $14 and is super small. It can kind of squeeze milk out before you get the flanges in but otherwise is fine. LactaMed Simplicity Hands Free Bra Kit - Black [link]
I got this one off Amazon and love it. It's so easy to adjust it for the perfect fit and is quick to put on.
As for pumping bra I got this for 13 dollars

Is it a bra, no. Do I feel ridiculous strapped in by shoelaces, totally. Could I make it myself, probably but with a newborn I ain't got time for that. Does it work? Totally! I usually pump one side while my little one nurses on the other so he helps trigger letdown, but I've done both sides a well! Hope this helps!
I'm on my third week back so heyyyy on the same boat. Missing my baby all day probably contributed to some stress, and work in general is stressful, so I really hope I can relax more so I can pump more milk.
I use this hands-free tie thing and find that it's so much easier to set up while at work versus a hands-free bra.
(On mobile so sorry about the formatting, or lack there of).
Check this out! I’m using it as I type!
I loved this thing, which looks stupid but really works, and it doesn't require changing bras.
