I'm currently 23 weeks and will need to be purchasing nursing bras soon, I'm size 20D (but that's in city chic bras, their sizing is always generous) and i'm struggling to find bras. I don't particularly want to buy from overseas (makes refunds difficult) and would prefer to buy in store (I'm in SA).

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go? I would prefer some that are a little bit nice, and preferably not industrial strength style, because I may be fat, but I like to look nice too.

Good luck, I'm a 38j and haven't found anywhere in Adelaide that has normal large size bras let alone nursing bras, I'm 20 weeks and resigning myself to the fact I'll have to buy online. It sucks doesn't it!
As far as buying online, a great company is brastogo.com.au I've been to their store when I used to live in Brisbane and they are lovely.

There used to be a great shop in Brighton called cheeky curves.  It's closed now, but the lady that ran it now does fittings at the boobytrap warehouse.  She is seriously amazing, and she'll give you some recommendations even if they don't have anything at the warehouse.  You can still find cheeky curves on Facebook, and her contact details are there :)

If you can't find a bricks and mortar store, I like Storm in a D Cup. They have an easy exchange/refund policy. I had a Hot Milk one last time and a couple of Berlei, I was fitted in store and they were 18E. I found the target ones useless, no support for me at all, the Hot Milk one is very pretty.

I was an 18G when i breastfed.  I went to a specialty bra store and ended up with an underwire bra that was suited to, and able to be altered to allow for, breastfeeding.  

The underwires did not affect milk supply and it was comfortable and supportive.
