Hi ya'll, I'm a new nursing momma, and a lot of my shirts don't fit anymore.  My ladies didn't get much bigger during my pregnancy, but I've gone from a B cup to a D cup now.

I'm trying to wear a lot of button-up shirts to make nursing easier, but all my old shirts are popping open over my breasts.  I'm too cheap to go buy new ones, so I'm wondering if there's a way to alter my shirts now to fit better.  Like, putting a gusset in under the armpits to make my shirt bigger in the bust.

Does anyone have experience with this problem?

Yeah, four kids, all breastfed.

I wore my shirts unbuttoned over the bust with a tank top underneath. At nursing time I'd undo a couple more buttons and raise the tank top just enough. Made for very good coverage for the boobage, as well as the belly region.

Yeah, but most of my camis are non-stretchy.  Maybe I can turn the straps of my camis into nursing straps.  Does that make sense?  Gotta go, fussy baby.

You could sew in "faux cami's" using old tees. Just leave the top buttons open, sew in the "cami" liner. You could leave the bottom or sides unstitched depending on your preferences

I read your opening lines, and to be honest, I was terrified! I was an F-cup pre-pregnancy, and have already gone up to a G, not to mention the increase in band size thanks to my expanding ribs. I'm due in about a month, and I can't imagine getting any bigger!
I've found a good place to buy nursing bras, but I always assumed that most of my shirts would be fine for nursing....

Hi jezebel!  Most shirts are fine for nursing, especially if you're like me and don't care if it all hangs out.  I'm just too cheap to go out and buy shirts that fit me.  But Joann's just had a huge sale, so I'm in the process of making my own stuff.  Wish me luck, I haven't sewn much in the way of clothing.
