I have tried Victoria's Secret bras before and wasn't too impressed. I heard Frederick's of Hollywood has a nice selection of bras. I tend to buy mine at Target, which turn out to be great lasting bras.

For the girls with the bigguns - I have found "Le Mystere" tolerably comfortable and fitting - but they are not cheap!

I usually wear Bali but the underwires always give out way before the rest of the bra. They are cheap. The most wonderful bra I ever had was a La Perla I found at The Rack. I can't afford them full price. But $12 was just fine!

Huh...I have tried so many different bra's, and initially, thought they fit...until you wear them for hours and hours straight!
Did you guys know (watching a segment on Tyra Banks and Oprah) that they claim that approx. 70 % of us girls wear the WRONG size?
Coming to think of it, it makes sense for several reasons.
1. Weight loss/ weight gain
2. Different materials/ different manufacturer
3. Different styles

Huh, I wish there was a bra with a super fit.......
To make matters worse, I have one major pet peeve....lol....I don't know about you guys, but, my underwear HAS TO MATCH! lol
(I think that stems from the time when our moms kept on telling us to wear clean underwear....just in case something happens....ROTFL. )

LOL...finding matching bra & panties isn't such an easy feat when you're big chested (DDD and above.)

I'm actually not a fan of matching sets (unless they're for "fun". ) I buy VS's nude or black satin v-strings (Angels or Second Skin.) I hate panty lines or when patterns/lace show through.

I'd prefer my bras and panties to match as well. Makes me feel more girly.

Lately, though, I've been wearing the Barely There crop tops. Fall is here and sweaters are more forgiving. Or I'll wear sports bras. One of my favorite places to buy bras is Title 9 sportswear. Expensive, but they've got a nice variety, and are rated by dumbbells, with one dumbbell having the least support, and five the most. I'm a 2 dumbbell girl.

I hear ya, I hear ya, girl! lol
I can't understand that either, that someone wouldn't look into the mirror to see (or feel), if they have a pantyline or if their bra is showing trough.
To me it's the opposite of looking "pulled together' and "polished"....lol.

Have you ever been fitted for a bra? If not, I would highly recommend it. My mom and my sisters and I all took a big trip to Nordstroms one day and got fitted. We tried on tons of different bras until we found the perfect fit. It was interesting because I was not the same size in each brand or style. Getting a proper fitting made all the difference in the world, so take advantage if there is a place near you that does it!

i got fitted for a Bra the old school way on Ochard street in Manhattan. I went with my then fiance to get a bra for my wedding. The guy came from behind the counter and proceeded to straddle me & cup my breasts He molested me! My husband & I still laugh about that because I really believe there are better ways to take a womans meaurements He was reccomended by my dress maker as one of the best though so I went along with it. On the up side it was one of the best bras ever One the downside I'm still afraid to go for another fitting.

I am one of the ones with the bigguns and I find that every store measures me different. One time I was told I was a C cup I haven't been a C cup since I was 20.
