I am finally ditching the nursing bra and trading up for some normalcy again! After almost 9 months of breastfeeding I’ve found that my old pre-pregnancy bras just don’t fit the same anymore. They’re too small, and some are just too worn. In fact, I split one almost in half the first time I wore it! Plus the cups are too small, and I think I even walked around in public with one of my nipples having fallen out of the cup without me knowing. Embarrassing! So it was more than time for some new bras!
But here was the challenge: money! Ever since I quit my job to stay home with our son, my husband and I have tried to be very conscious of our spending. To the point where I downgraded from my regular hair conditioner to save a measly dollar. So we are pretty serious about cutting where we can!
With that said, I knew bra shopping would be a challenge since bras are so ungodly expensive. So instead of going to Victoria’s Secret, or even JCPenney, we went on the quest of finding a bra at Walmart. I have never been a huge fan of Walmart, but we have recently become fans of Super Walmart because it’s the cheapest place to do our one-stop shopping. However, I was a little skeptical about what their bras would be like.
Luckily, Walmart proved me wrong, and I found two bras that were not only in our budget, but cute and comfortable at the same time. Thank you, Hanes, for making a great bra for only $12! I purchased one with underwire in white, and one without in hot pink. There is something about buying a new bra that lifts my spirits (not to mention other things). I am so happy with the fit and the material that I don’t know if I’ll need to spend $35 on a new bra again!
I am only beginning to rebuild my post-partum bra collection. Two just isn’t going to cut it, but it’s a good start.
Have you tried the Hanes line of bras? What do you think? Do you have any recommendations for a great, low cost bra?
