Hi Chaithra you should use confortable cotton bra it will give you support. You can use nursing bra which is very convenient  but don't be without bra except in night. And if you are going out keep some soft extra cotton piece under the bra so it can help in absorbing milk discharged. It won't affect breastfeeding you can wear comfortable clean cotton bra.

Hi Chaithra yes you need to wear a well supported nursing bra.  If you are uncomfortable means you wearing the wrong size. Do get yourself fitted and wear the right size.
