    Subject:  Where to buy nursing bras?
    Comment:  Originally I purchased my nursing bras and tanks at boing boing and online. I only wish I had first gone to Iris lingerie in Boreum Hill.Iris carries some nursing bras, but mostly carries regular bras that she sends out to be altered into nursing bras.The pros: Iris will fit you perfectly. (I thought I was a 36D. I am a 32F.) You will feel incredible. Whenever I wear any of my non-iris bras, my chest feels completely unsupported.The cons: it can be a little pricey (around $70 a bra, but can go up to $150 for some non-nursing ones). However, my non-supportive nursing tanks cost $50 a piece online. Most bras are underwire. I was one of those people who thought underwire would give me clogged ducts. Truth be told, I had a ton of issues with clogs using the non-underwire bras and no issues since switching to underwire.Go to Iris! She's on Atlantic and shares a store with Kimera Design.

    Comment:  I can't recommend Iris Lingerie on Atlantic Ave enough. I tell you (and all my friends I've sent there will tell you the same thing) she is an absolute boob magician. No tape measure, she can tell what size you are just by looking at you. (I walked in the other day after not being there for 6 months, she says..."you look different, gone up a size....she was right (I'm pregnant)...how she remembers all her clients is amazing (remember my name!)). And most likely you're wearing the wrong size too...I left after the first time seeing her looking 10 lbs lighter and feeling so much more support than Victorias Secret could ever offer. She'll also turn any of her bras she sells into nursing bras!http://irislingeriebrooklyn.com/

    Comment:  You must go to Iris: http://irislingeriebrooklyn.com/She's the best, but fair warning: You will probably pay about $100 for a bra. I did, but it was the best $100 I've spent!

    Comment:  On Atlantic ave in kimera, there is a bra lady downstairs, Iris from Iris lingerie. She is the best. I saw her through out my pregnancy ( I went up three cup sizes) and she will convert supportive bras into nursing bras. You can't go wrong!!

    Comment:  Iris lingerie who is based in Kimera on Atlantic ave is really good. She can size you up and get you in a good bra in a jiffy. Don't wear a bra you like because she will likely tell you to throw it out then and there. She also asked me if I was nursing, and said that she can convert bras and or has nursing bras (I'm way past that, but thought it was considerate.)She makes appt or takes walk ins.

    Comment:  Go see Iris the Bra Lady in the basement of the Kimera dress shop on Atlantic! She is amazing! She took one look at me and found the perfect bra. She's honest too, wouldn't let me buy more than 1 bra per visit while pregnant because she knew my breasts would grow. She was right and saved me $$$.

    Comment:  Iris has shop as part of Kimera on Atlantic avenue. I didn't have great success with her myself (I am ridiculously picky and am clinging to 3 old Victoria's secret bras they no longer make and I don't know what I'll do when they finally give out on me), but my best friend and her sister SWEAR by Iris.I did get my wedding dress from Yvonne and LOVE her, so if she likes iris enough to share her shop, that's good enough for me.

    Comment:  please see Iris downstairs at Kimera on Atlantic Ave between Hoyt and Bond next door to Downtown Atlantic.She fitted myself and daughter last week and my boobies have never been happier.My daughter is looking amazing in her new bra's. I have been wearing the wrong size for 40 years. I think she can also turn your bra into nursing bras as well.

    Comment:  I met Iris for Iris Lingerie when I attended the A Child Grows in Brooklyn Expo. She did free bra fittings and has a very extensive history in lingerie. She is located in Brooklyn and I found her to be very lovely and knowledgeable. Here is her website: http://irislingeriebrooklyn.com/
