    Default Nursing bra clips

    Does anyone know where you can buy nursing bra clips so that you could convert a normal singlet/camisole into a breastfeeding top?
    I can find some online haberdashery places in the US that sell them but nowhere that ships to Aus.

    I hate that all nursing singlets costs sooo much, or are also maternity tops with the gathering at the sides to fit over your bump. I just want to get some cheap Big W singlets and convert them to nursing tops to wear under my regular shirts so that I don't have to flash my stripey gross belly when I feed.

    (I'm an A cup at best and desperate to alter my normal clothes so something fits without coating me a small fortune, not to mention most things are super daggy)

    Sorry might sound obvious but have you tried Spotlight? They have all sort of clips and buckles, maybe something that would even work in the same concept?

    I just checked eBay. I typed in breastfeeding bra clips, to the search box, then clicked on the items from international sellers options. There were 4 different ones I saw at a glance.

    They were a tiny bit pricey IMO, I saw cheaper bras. Maybe you could try get cheap bras and cut the clips off them?

    Yeah they are just so exxy when you buy them from overseas and add postage. I found some on Etsy that were about $7.50 for shipping which is about the cheapest I can find. Definitely considering looking for cheap bras to destroy!

    This or even just a nursing bra (kmart also sell these really cheap) under one of the big w singlets you want. In the early days I wore the singlets with the built in bras but I lived in them and got sick of the same colour (black, white or grey) so switched to just singlets. They are usually stretchy enough to pull down to feed.

    Target has these ones with built in bra/support for $20ish at the moment. They don't have the side rouching.

    I got a couple singlets from bigw a month or so ago for about $10. I have also found that at home o wear a normal nursing bra & a normal spaghetti strap singlet & just pull the top part down over my boobs for feeds, no flashes of belly at all.

    Google breast vest. It's a singlet type thing you wear under your regular tops that allows access for feeding but keeps your belly covered.
