Do you know of any online retailer or store that does backorder on bras?

Seeing styles and then finding the size out of stock is getting annoying.


If you had to do this how long was your wait usually?

Where did you order from?

Check out:
brastop
bravissimo
figleaves
herroom
very.com
ASOS

The all have some overlap on brands, if I recall I think you are under a G, so there maybe more options. But the 28 bands tend to be "understocked." But when I have had a backorder, it mostly has taken 2 weeks or so.

Your timing can be off, just because of the winter clearance and anticipation of the spring styles and stocking up for then.

I haven't yet.

I have just been bookmarking to check out reviews and the 28's are always out of stock.
Probably going to try a different couple cup sizes around that range to see what fits best.


I just didn't want to bother with customer service if someone on here already knew or had experience. lol

Good luck! I see quite a few 28s at my local nordstrom these days. I go to a flagship one more often. 28s are still a bit of a niche size, and I hope that improves! But keep trying. FYI: I find that Cleo bras tend to be "tight" so I need to go up in a band for many of them. So you can try the 30s in the Cleo's. Many of the Panache's as well. (The Arizia comes to mind as a tight one. Adorra is more true to size.)

Good to know. Most 28's I can't use the biggest adjustment and then reduce with the bra's age like how you are suppose to. Usually I have to go at the second or smallest clasp setting. Putting those on the list...

Nordstorms is close here but who knows what the buy has on stock...

I mail order all my bras, I have an uncommon size. I found the size finally and just keep ordering the same bra brand in different colors and styles and watch for specials. There are only one or two stores that even stock my size. And then, they NEVER have that size in stock. There are not enough hours in a day for me to drive to every single store in our metro area to look for the one they MIGHT have in stock. Mail order is the way to go. Unless you are a 36B.
