VS new Fabulous line up goes up to 38DDD, so perhaps they are changing their ways. Though I'm sure they'll only carry up to C cups in the stores and still only hire petite snooty little scamps to work there.

Nope will probably never get a bra to fit because of that . I cant buy one online because they dont fit right at all ...oh well yeah can feel you all s pain with the bra buying and searching for em .
Have you tried measuring yourself?

Knowing my luck that most likely would not fit me either LOL !!!!
Some of us don't have a choice. I'm a 36GG and that size is not sold in stores. My bras are usually around $60 a pop if I can manage to find them on sale on ebay.

Yup same here, I am also in the annoying size club, your sister size: 34H! (although Freya's and Cleo's tend to be a little cheaper than Fantasie's and Panache's $60 retail. Freya and Fantasie fit me better than Panache and Cleo)

I have a Panache and a Cleo and both make my boobs look like torpedos...almost no support whatsoever. I just don't think my breast shape was meant for those bras.

I really wish Fredericks made bras in my size (I can squeeze into a 38F, though it doesn't fit quite right) because they're very comfortable, cheap and come in all kinds of fancy colors and styles.

It would be nice to find a molded cup bra that was under $60 or so that actually fit me and gave me decent support. One can wish

Hmm try Freya. I got a Deco a few weeks ago. It wa $63 and comes in lots of colors. Panache and Cleo are too wide for me and end up poking my underarms.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

Not sure, but, I think the most I've spent for a bra is $15. Cannot imagine paying $50 or more.

I don't want to pay more. But the alternatives are pretty dire.

You've probably seen this blog before, but this woman shows how to make a pointy bra more rounded. Doesn't solve the price issue, you'll have to move to the UK or Poland and stalk sales racks for that issue.

wow yes I have tried measuring myself and it is a no go cause I had a brain injury some years ago and it effects how I read and stuff and understanding . I am on disability so I cant afford 60.00 for a bra no matter too much money since Im on a monthly budget that does not include much of anything . i was just saying for me a 60.00 bra is not doable at all .the last time i went the fitter embarassed me so bad I will never be fitted again and she kept saying stuff like dont you hear me ? did you not just hear me and stuff like that so we left my cousin was with me .
