Default Bras for the well endowed

Ok ladies with big chests..... Where the crap do you get your bras?

I hate this. I'm like a 40 something DD that I know of and not even positive that that is the correct size since sometimes DD seems on the small size. Can I just say I hate my boobs and hope that eventually if I ever lose this weight that they will disappear?

I'm trying to find some good bras that won't kill my bank account. Need some with straps and would like to get one strapless that will hold up the girls.

I need something that is going to be long lasting, comfortable and supportive. So where do you get your bras? Likes and dislikes about bras you have owned?

I'm not sure if I'm blessed or cursed lol

I'll post reviews when I get home but I'm a 38G and get all my bras here: http://myworld.ebay.com/belle-lingerie/ Even including shipping from the UK they are WAY cheaper than any store I've found, plus they have cute styles! Finding that seller seriously changed my life. I went from 1 ugly bra because I couldn't afford any more/better ones, to a small but growing collection of cute and sexy bras.

First, you need to measure! I was wearing entirely the wrong bra size for yeaaaars, it's so much more comfy in the proper size.

Sadly these two things:

Don't go together. But I've found that the bras I spend more money on last SO much longer and they're a heck of a lot more comfortable (and cuter) than the $20 ones.

I order from Breakout Bras. They have a great refund/exchange policy, they have all the sizes, and their support is awesome.

You and me both. I'm really hoping mine disappear after I'm done BF'ing. Or sooner. Sooner would be better.

The place I go is an independent shop and they rock. They have some sizing and bra reviews on their website that might be helpful for you as well: http://www.sophisticatedpair.com/

Kohl's has a nice line of bras from Maidenform I got a bra from them in a hard to find size that I actually use as my sports bra

Woops, gonna C/P my post from your double posted thread. :P

You're not a 40DD. Having met you and seen recent photos as well, I can pretty much guarantee you.

You should read this, measure yourself, and check out this amazing website. That's how I found out my real size and now get all my bras! Not cheapo, but waaaay cheaper than any specialty shop locally, AND they do returns.

You may have better luck locally than I, however.

ETA: I'll go ahead and link this slightly embarrassing but poignant headless photo of my before/after bra sizes and relevant bras. NSFW because bras.

(I have way cuter bras than that granny one now, btw. BraStop has the CUTEST bras. This was the first one I got after being fitted and it was an epiphany.)

As far as walmart bras go... the 40ishDD ones are the only ones that seem to work though I always find something off so you're probably right... I know they have gotten bigger within the past year due to weight gain in general, but ya regardless they suck... I just want small boobs.

Thanks. I'm definitely going to measure and see what I can find. Really do need some good bras.

Yeah... see my "before" shot? 40DDD. The biggest I could find in a department store. It "works" but my boobs are pulled tight, I have armpit-boob, and the bones in the underwire don't meet my chest at ALL in the centre, or under the boobs. Sure, it holds my boobs up and keeps them in check, but the comfort I feel in a proper-fitting bra is bar none.

Yep I did the same thing, I bought 48 DDD and then took it in around so that. Had boob room, then I got fitted for a corset for my wedding and found out my size....40I or 40J depending on the maker...huge difference in comfort!

Go as small as you can in the back, and as big as you can in the cup.

And FREYA. Best bras for bigger babs
