I am really getting frustrated when buying a bra anymore.
They look cute, but, they are either not comfortable, or don't last...or don't even come in my size! (34 D)
I usually buy mine at Victorias Secret....but, they always have the same ol' - same ol'....huh.
Any fav brands you guys can recommend?
Oh, and, I hate when you buy those nice ones, and then your boobs end up "falling out" (yes...it's the right size...but NOT the right style!)
Does anyone here have the same problems? (Please don't tell me that I am the only one worrying about finding THE right bras with the matching panties!!!!! )

Default Bras....

I have worn Bali bras all my life! (...and for kaykay that is quite awhile!) Have purchased several different styles but all Bali!

Right now I am buying one of their newer "no poke" wired bras. (Prior to the "no poke" style, I couldn't stand to wear a bra with a wire.)

I am a DD and buy the Breezies bra on QVC. They have a few different styles but my favorite is A73908, a lace trimmed support bra. It comes in a few colors and it's really comfortable.

I'm a 36G (when not pregnant) and buy all of mine online (Bravissimo, PerfectPair and a couple of other websites.) The brands I live in are Goddess, Freya and Panache.

I'm a very similar size and buy all of mine on-line too. I've been living in the Goddess softcups. Do you find that Freya and Panache run the same size as Goddess, or do you have to order a diff size?

I can't find an underwire bra that doesn't kill me after about an hour...

It varied with the Freya & Panache bras, depending on the style. Either I fit into the 36G or they didn't fit me properly at all, no matter what size I tried.


As for an underwire that doesn't kill, have you tried the Goddess 3910??

What I have found is that sometimes the wire falls short in the cups and that's when they rub me the wrong way. I could have 2 of the same exact bras, but were manufactured at different times and therefore one has a shorter wire by 1/2" and it drives me insane.

Actually I have, but not in a long time. I stopped wearing it because I didn't love how it fit, but you're right that it was better than most underwires. Maybe I should try it again at current size (I've gained a few pounds ).

Oh well, maybe we need to invent our own better bras!

I'm with NJKate on buying wacoal bras. The initial hit hurts but the bra really does have a nice fit.

Yes, I wore them for some years before I grew out of their sizes. They are very high quality bras.
