Good golly the things people do not talk enough about but should. This is it. I am a large chested women before my pregnancies and ginormous during nursing. (We're talking letters I did not know existed before this.) I was buying my bras from motherhood, what a mistake. On top of the regualr pains of nursing my back was killing me. Medela nuring bras are about two to three times more expensive but are much needed to survive this time in ones life. I had no idea I could love a bra so much. I loved the support I felt during the nursing process too. I do have to say for those who have never nursed purchase at least two and maybe a third cheap one. The only other major problem is they seem well constructed but mine all tore up fairly fast. They tore up at the wire part, and I did wash them by hand and hang to dry. The store I purchased from said they were not carrying them anymore because of this. Even with that being said, the relief from the back pain made it worth every cent.( no spell check on this one so sorry for any errors or typos)

I naturally assumed, "it's Medela, it must be a great nursing bra!"  I could not have been more wrong...it felt like I was wearing a bullet proof vest.  I must however admit that they did serve the purpose of easy access for breastfeeding and holding the nursing pads in place.  I continued to use them for about the first four to six months of breastfeeding because I had spent so much money on them, but I honestly could not wait to burn them...you can ask my husband.  I complained about them every time I wore them. Also they were not minimizing at all!!  It was bad enough I was two cup sizes larger...with this bra i looked humongous! (I noticed that cup sizes D and larger had a wider padded strap for comfort, but I did not find the benefit of them and they just made it hard to wear anything because the were so wide.) I got a couple of other nursing bra that were much more discrete and pleasant to wear.  I would suggest try a couple of different bras before committing to the purchase!

Medela bra... not the best!

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        This product just does not seem to stand up to what I would personally expect from Medela! As a large breasted woman - I was pretty disappointed! I had typically went to a local bra store that sold nursing bras and they came in larger sizes (when nursing I was a DDDD or the equivelent of a F). This bra did not cut it! The underwire would dig in, and it did not give much support at all. Medela was very good about replacing the bra but again, it was the same issue. 

        I purchased the bra at our local hospital as we live in a huge city and they had a nursing store within the maternity floor. I was so excited that this would help with my issue of lacking extra bras! As a busy mom at the time of a 13 month old and a newborn it just was not cutting it. My back hurt - I felt like I was constantly adjusting my bra and to no help at all. 

        I would recommend this product only if you had small to medium breasts, but then again, I think you would have more options on brand and quality.

        Got to heave a bra and Medela makes a decent on

        By 

        from Clinton, MS

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        Even after buying and wearing the Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra and other brands, I am still waiting for a good one to be made.  I did not expect my breasts to look like they were before I was pregnant, but I expected them to be supported when I am wearing a bra, especially when I am nursing.  The Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra did function as a decent bra.  It made it easy for me to nurse in areas in a quick and efficient way (although I did lack some of the skill of making it even more efficient).  Even though I bought the bra from the hospital after returning home, the price was still very decent, and because I didn't expect for a nursing bra to be my favorite, this was a good bra to buy.  The look of the bra was good looking or looked as good as a nursing bra could and the structure was made well.  I was expecting more from Medela though.  It is a highly recommended name, and although the bra got the job done, I wish that it had done it better.

        These bras are great for easy access, not the best support thoug

        By 

        from Carmel, IN

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        I ended up needing to buy new nursing bras so I went to my local hospital where I would be delivering my baby.  I ended up getting a Medela nursing bra without the underwire.  They had these bras on clearance due to the color.  I do like the fact that these bras have front flaps and very easy access by pressing down on the clips in the front.  However, I do not feel that my breasts are supported well in terms of when I go out in public, I do believe that there is some bouncing going on!  I am a well-endowed woman so it is hard to find a good bra that supports my girls, but these are great for nursing in terms of easy access.  Since these were purchaesd on clearance, I will not complain for the value, but I'm not sure I would have been as happy if I would have spent full-price for these bras due to the issues of support.  I am not thrilled about underwire bras because they seem uncomfortable to me.  I would definitely buy another one of these bras, though!

        The Medela Comfort bra is what it says!

        By 

        from New Haven, CT

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        I was introduced to this bra by the nursing-bra fitter at the hospital at which I delivered six weeks before my due date.  Trading in my regular bras for this bra was the best decision I could have made during those super-uncomfortable last weeks of my pregnancy.  I was a little skeptical at first because it's not the most attractive bra in the world (my husband teased me endlessly) but oh my goodness is it comfortable.  I absolutely loved this bra and lived in it from the time I got it until about four or five weeks post-partum when I switched to a more traditional looking nursing bra.  This doesn't look too great under most clingy clothes but it's absolutely perfect for wearing under your jammies and sleeping in during those first sleep-deprived week when you're breasts are large and you're snatching every spare moment of rest you can.  It's also really easy to use when you're first getting the hang of breastfeeding.

        Comfortable Maternity Bra to wear all day

        By 

        from Walled Lake, MI

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        The medela comfort nursing bra is my favorite nursing bra on the market. I am completely satisifed with the comfort, look, and ease of use this bra provides. I would highly recommend any nursing mother to give try this bra.

        I love the racer back support the bra provides as it almost fits like a sports bra. I am sporty girl and perhaps if you have never used a sports bra, you might find the fit a little odd.

        The material is stretchy, comfy and light. I like the smooth feel of the fabric and how it is soft to my skin and silky for my baby to snuggle into after eating a meal.

        The clasp on the bra that allows breastfeeding is easy to undo and re-latch. 

        I can wear this bra all day and all night without any problems. My favorite part is that you do not have to worry about any tags attached to the bra.

        When I have my next child, I will be investing in another Medela Comfort Nursing Bra and I hope you do too.

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

         I love Medela seamless sorf cup Nursing bra, because its easy to use and its gentle on my skin. its not heavy, Light weighted.** **I have twins and my breast got bigger that i was looking around for better bra when someone told me to get this bra. Sure its a very comfotable bra. And i will recommend this to my loved ones and friends.Medelas Full Support bra line is for the active mom throughout the day and provides a smooth, natural appearance under clothing from everyday t-shirts. I get so busy that i have to run sometimes to catch the bus and this bra does hold me well. It is this unique fabric that is key to how the bra comfortably accommodates fluctuating breast size throughout the day, while maintaining comfort and flexibility. The convenient one hand release cup allows fast easy nursing. This same cup design also provides gentle but effective support to mothers and waiting Moms.Best!!

        Easy to latch cup covers but not an all-day bra

        By 

        from Mount Juliet, TN

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        Medela makes a nice nursing bra with easy access cups but for the price I was hoping for a little more comfort. The straps have no padding (they are just thick ribbon-like material - I actually thought they would cut in on my shoulders a lot more than they actually do) and the chest band has very little (it is not elastic at all). After wearing it for 6 hours or so it starts to get a little bit uncomfortable.  It does stand up to a lot though. I have been using the same bra for almost 2 years now and except for a little rip in the decorative lace on the front of one of the cups, it is in great shape. It also does offer a nice bit of support without an underwire. Overall this is a very nice nursing bra. Other than the easy latching, the little bit of padding in the cup cover allows you to wear more form fitting t-shirts and not have the typical show through of the circular nursing opening.

        The Medela Full Coverage Underwire Nursing Bra is a must!!!

        By 

        from Sacramento, CA

        Comments about Medela Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra:

        The Medela Full Coverage Underwire nursing bra is a must have for any full figured nursing mom!

        It comes in larger sizes, while it still is attractive, supportive, comfortable and pratical. Although it does come in large sizes, some say that it's not supportive enough for the larger breast. I do have to agree to a certain degree. I've tried other bras, like the Bravado that is definately more supportive, however it doesn't give the definition that this bra gives. The Bravado seems to me more like a Sports Bra, not a bra that you can wear with every day shirts and still feel and look attractive as a women. The Medela does lose it's stretch after several months of wearing, so it's durability of use is not long. However, I still buy it time and time again because it's one of the few underwire bras for my size that still gives me the look and feel of wearing a regular non-nursing bra. I do wish though that the bra cup would withstand the wear and not stretch out after a couple months.
