My bras are not as pretty as I'd like, given that I'm not a A/B but I was fitted correctly so it's not uncomfortable.
I swear, try the GAP. Check out the "Silk Plunging Bra" in black with off-white lace trim, in their full support line. It goes up to 38DD.

Lucky for me bras in 36B are pretty much everywhere.

Well I have a big chest so bras are my best friend. It is hard to find a good one that fits right though. I even have to wear one to bed or feel uncomfortable....I wear nice soft, comfy ones to bed though.

Freddies has some of the worst bras out there... yes, some larger sizes, but poorly made... and one of the girls there told me flat out "bras are only supposed to last 3 months'
Really? My friend (who's a 38DD, I think) buys all her bras and corsets there.

I like seeing ladies in them, does that count?

I couldn't find the quote saying that Freddies says you have to replace your bras after 3 months, but I'm going to comment on this regardless. I had 3 LeBJay minimizer bras for about 8 years. After about 4 years I had them taken in by a seamstress for $6 each. They lasted another 4 years. Now I'm retiring them. They did cost about $60 each, however lasted an eternity!

They would still fit now, if I hadn't recently changed shape ( due to going off BC and perhaps age, losing weight, not sure).

If you want bras to last, don't wash them in the machine. Hand wash only. If they are nylon, they don't have to be washed after each wearing (cotton is different as it's more absorbant of sweat,etc). The less you wash them, the longer you'll have them and the less money you'll dish out.

I'll have to try the IPEX VS bra next time I'm in the states. Sounds comfortable.
I bought a gel bra a few years back from VS and it is hilarious. It makes you at least a full size larger. I wear it for tops that i need to fill out a bit more. I sewed a cat woman costume one year for halloween and made the chest too big. Luckily the Gel bra improved the look, so I didn't have to re-sew.

For those of you who sleep in a bra, the good news is it keeps you looking younger longer, I've heard (decreased sagging and stretch marks). Personally, sleeping in a bra makes my skin curl, but..... I guess there are benefits...

After todays trip to VS, I no longer hate bras!!! I tried a few on & it was amazing how well they fit!! I didn't buy any cuz the ones I liked were $40 a pop, way out of my budget.....but I am gonna order some online!!!
post #99 of 113
I know what you mean, I can't stand the regular ones, they are 2 tight around my chest, fortuneatly I have small ones so I could get away with not wearing one for a while until I found a sports bra that fit good and was affordable.

SEE!!! I told you so! If you get a bra that fits properly, you will love them!

And Natalie- try their PINK collection. (I'm a 34B, not sure your size...) but they are like $28.50 a piece, but look online right now, cuz you can get them for like $15 - they are all on sale and last forever, their PINK collection is great, they are a cotton bra and are amazingly comfortable!

I like bras but because i have um...big assets its annoying trying to find something that holds, lifts AND looks beautiful. I dont want to wear beige granny bras (no offence lol) Although the latest one i got is my size and passed (not to make them bigger but to hold them up) and my god, it's like having a shelf! If Tristan still drank he could sit a beer can on them!

I talked to the gal in the store....they don't carry that one in my size. I have to check online to see if they carry it in my size. I'm looking at the clearnace bras right now, being the cheapie I am!

I finally bought new bras. I went to Kohl's and found some nice ones for $20. It still adds up though.
post #104 of 113
I have a tough time finding my size.. which I believe to be a 40C. My number one issue isn't the cup size or feel it's the feel under the arms! Because I am overweight I have..um.. extra fat I guess under the arms where the bra sides go and bras slip and bunch all the time. I absolutely hate bras, but I hate worse going without one.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE VS bras and panties. I haven't bought anything else in many years. I recently "retired" one of them because it had been white but it got really dingy in the 3+ years that I had it. That's the ONLY reason it's been removed. lol

I tried their wireless bra, and I didn't like it at all. I didn't feel supported enough and it made my boobs look flat. Maybe it was too small for me, but still. I'm a 36D...not that hard to find my size, lol.

Anyway, I'm drooling over their semi-annual sale right now...all the stuff I love and buy is on sale.
post #106 of 113
Mwahahaha... it lives!

So, I went to VS this week and caught the tail end of their sale. I bought the last 2 unlined Body bras they had in my (new) size. I guess when you have 2 letters they feel you need 3 hooks. Anyway, they informed me that this particular bra is being discontinued... I don't know what I'm gonna do when I need new ones since these were the only ones I wear.
post #107 of 113
I hate that. You find something you like and need and they discontinue it. I think it's a conspiracy.
post #108 of 113
It feels like im wearing a harness, I feel so constricted, and it sucks because I cant go braless because im ....ahem..top heavy lol. I HATE BRAS!!!! Id rather have no boobs at all lol im so serious.

I bought three new bras about two weeks ago and spent close to $400. (Shhh, J doesn't know how much I spend!) I'd love to be able to just walk into any store and buy whatever they have and spend, like, twenty bucks, but most stores stop at D or DD, and I am so not that. I have tried looking for cheaper bras in my size, but have been unsuccessful at finding anything but the ugliest, most "granniest" bras imagineable. (Where do adult film stars buy their bras? Maybe I should shop there!)

I lost more than thirty pounds since I last bought bras, and although the number has gone down (I used to be a 42/44G), the cup size hasn't. I'm afraid of what I'm going to look like when I finally hit my goal weight ... I have mental imagines of me looking like some kind of freakishly short Barbie doll.

I hate them so much that I basically banned them from my wardrobe in the mid-80s. The only time I wear them is in very hot weather when I'm wearing sheer tops, and am at work, and I only use sports bras then. Otherwise, it's just too bad if somebody is offended by a bit (or a lot) of fatty tissue. The only person who has ever complained is my mom's S.O., and that's his problem, not mine. They're not flopping around my waist, so who cares?
post #111 of 113
I like bras that make me look....bigger and better!

But, I can't seem to find one that fits me right! I don't know why the straps always fall down off my shoulders! Does anyone have an explanation for this? I have fit anywhere between a 32B-38C.

I went to Macy's the other day to try on bras, which were 50% off- but I didn't like any of them. I stick to VS. $40 for a bra may be a lot, but I were a bra every single day and the VS ones last me forever- I only need a new one when I lose a lot of weight. I'm happy to spend $40 a year on a bra that I use all the time
