In brief: Keeps shirt dry

If you are a big leaker, get some heavy duty pads.
The lansinoh brand makes pretty solid pads for most women.

In brief: Do it yourself!

When i was a nursing mom, i would fold a cloth diaper lengthwise and put it under a sports bra to sleep in.
Was far more comfortable than the little pads which slide around, and very absorbent to prevent breast milk leaking in bed. During day, it may be less of a problem, but you may want to just use some soft absorbent pads inside your bra.
