I actually just went bra shopping yesterday, because I hadn't bought a bra in so many years that I'm embarrassed to say. I bought 2 wacoal sport bras.

So now I have

5 ancient Victoria's Secret bras (that I don't want to wear anymore because that little clasp in the back always itches) and

2 Wacoals that I will wear.

I would love to know if anyone knows where I can find a padded bra without a clasp in the back (or the front) that has a plunge front (to wear with deeper v-necks).

If I could find a bra that truly fits and is comfortable (not that gross nylon-ish material), I would probably have 20 bras! Right now, I only own 4 1/2 (one is ready for the trash!)

Measure yourself correctly and then buy one in your 'real' size I recently bought a really nice Wacoal for $40 in my size (36H) though I think they run a bit small, just as an FYI if you go that route. I've found that Freya and Panache Cleos are AWESOME and true to size.

I've also heard Nordstroms has excellent measuring services if you're around one.

3 shock absorber sports bras
3 Freya sports bras (half technically don't fit we'll so I save them for low impact stuff)

Well fitting non-neutral bras:
~6 Freya, panache, Cleo
Well fitting neutral
1 flirtelle

Currently ill fitting:
7 mostly Cleo, Panache, Freya

If my weight changes, it really impacts my bra fit. 5 pounds can move bras into the ill fitting category

I also have an obnoxious size, so if there is ever a well fitting one at a good price I feel impelled to get it. Even if it is purple and blue camo.

I agree about the Wacoal fit. I find it to be small in the cups and big in the band. I sized out of their range. If it was to fit me, I'd need about a 32J, but typically I am closer to 34H. Freya is a bit big in the band and large in the cup. If you are between sizes, it is better to go down. I find Cleo and Panache are tight in the band, so I tend to go up there. It is also inonsustent. I seem to need to go up in the cup often as well. Cleo and Freya have excellent shape and fun designs. Fantasie is Freyas sister brand that is more conservative.

i'm not brand loyal but can usually find what I need at nordstrom rack.
i don't care for shelf sports bras & purchase mine from Sports bras, yoga clothing, womens sportswear, athletic apparel - Title Nine.
