Bras and things

Me, leafing through catalogue that arrived in mail: Victoria's Secret really doesn't do nursing wear, do they.
Steve: Aren't all their clothes nursing wear, really?

Good point. Accordingly, I now have some bra-top tanks that do, indeed, tug aside well enough for nursing. I'm pretty much wearing tank tops of some kind all summer, with open button-ups over them for layers.

Our 4th of July was fairly uneventful, which is fine with me. We went to a small barbecue gathering, and viewed a few fireworks from the West Seattle Bridge on the drive home. Though I'm a patriot and all, I often complain that the 4th is a really obnoxious holiday, not for patriotic reasons but because it inspires people to be loud and dangerous and pyromaniacal. My family has made fun of me for this observation, but honestly, can you tell me the 4th of July isn't loud, dangerous, and pyromaniacal?

However, it did rain a bit. Which was especially funny since there was no rain in the forecast. The weather here just seems to know when it's the 4th of July, and rustles up some rainclouds accordingly.

Think I'll go make some more fandom observations. Or take baby for a walk, since he's getting cabin fever. Yah.

nursing wear
Nursing wear is indeed difficult to find, but considering that the last time I had to look for it was 6 years ago, I can't help but observe that the selection is VASTLY improved now.

Altho, am I the only one who just can NOT find a comfortable nursing bra that does NOT cause some level of pain/clogged ducts? The old underwire ones that I used to have did it, and the ones I've got now (minus underwire) have a really badly placed seam that does the same thing. Urgh.

I got really good at lifting up t-shirts and just covering a little with receiving blankets. Button up shirts work well too. But I'm still having to wear a few of my maternity shirts, til the belly goes away completely. :D

Oh, and about Vickie's Secret pretty much ALL being nursing wear ... maybe, but Fredericks of Hollywood is definitely more so.

Re: nursing wear
I hear from my sisters, as well, that maternity/nursing wear has vastly improved in the last few years. Hope the trend continues.

I don't even try the underwires with nursing wear, but I managed to get mastitis once so far anyway. Huge fun. :)
