Frederick's has bras up to an FF. I think that if I was that big, I'd get a boob bob. That's GOT to cut your shoulders and kill your back! I hit their online sales and get some good deals.

A while back, I read that most women wear the wrong size bra. We have some very heavy women at work, who are in serious need of a better fit. Their bras are too small and give them that "four boob" look. Some of them are too tight, across the back and make them look as if they have a pair back there, too.
I HATE the four boob look!!! At DDD by back doesn't bother me and I have to make sure the DDD are strechie so they will fit. I might get a boob job when I get alittle older if my back does start to bother me but it seems like no matter what wait I am I'm still a ddd just the number in front goes down.

ROFLMAO!! my SIL has that! (the one that is bad) I dont know how they cant notice?? like Shell says, dont they look in the mirror?

I have the kind of bra that has that thin padding and every time I wash it I have to literally reshape the cups. otherwise they go all funky and stuff.

I have a question. Why do the straps ALWAYS slide doowwwnnn the shoulder? I have like three inches of strap they are so tight. then it rides up your back.

Where is Kev? This seems like his kind of thread.

If one is having problems with slipping straps, try a wider strap. When I made evening gowns and prom dresses, I put strap snaps into the shoulders. These are 2" pieces of 1/4" elastic, stitched onto the shoulder seams at one end, with a snap at the other. This kept bra straps from peeking out of necklines and/or armholes.

I never ever put lingerie in the dryer. My mom always told me that was a no-no, unless it was 100% cotton panties . . . then it's OK. And it works, too, I think I've only had to throw away one or two bras ever, unless it was the ones I out-grew back in high school, and those just didn't fit anymore.

I have a great set-up for lingerie, though. My mom's good friend works for Maidenform. So, she always has all these extra samples, that weren't used in the modeling for the retail companies that were going to order them. Afterwards, the extras are sold really cheap, since they don't have the tags and labels on them like normal lingerie. And they're always in my size, too! (The samples only ever come in one size, usually.) It's $1 for each panty and $5 for each bra. Cool, huh?

Check out Old Pueblo Traders catalog. They carry a big selection of larger-sized bras and some of them aren't bad-looking. They are based here in Tucson and I've been shopping their stores, for years.

Ya know it ended up one day that Kylee (whose 9) and I were at wally world when she let me know that she needed a bra... so I took her to the bra dept (she had just turned 8 at the time) and had to explain to her that she didn't actually need a cup size, and then had to explain why....

So now every time we go to a dept store if we pass the bra section, she finds the biggest size picks it and smiles at me, so I tell be carefull, one day you'll have to get one that big... It's like a joke between us now.

One I'll tell the story about when she came outside to ask me what a tampon was...

Its not just the men - try being a single mother, trying to teach her son to pee standing up! I finally enlisted my dad, for that one.

I love VS but can't afford it right now.. There clothes are a poor quality for the price IMO though.. But their lingerie is good.. I too use a lingerie bag, wash on delicate in cold/cold wash, and use gentle detergent.. then i hang to dry.. This helps my bras last at LEAST a year or two, whereas before it was like 6months then toss.

For a variety of sizes, check out:

just go on and browse by size on the left, it's mondo easy and they have a HUGE selection

I bookmarked this site so I can browse it a little further. There are some really pretty bras on this website. I had better not buy any right now though because my hubby Ken might shoot me
