In brief: Yes
As long as the bra fits well, it shouldn't be a problem. If it is too tight and compresses glandular tissue it could impede milk production and milk flow.

You can find underwire nursing bras out there that ought to be comfortable-- as long as the wire doesn't pinch breast tissue, you should be fine.
The main thing is getting a good fit and feeling comfortable.
