Seam placement is critical.

The only problem children are the sheer ones.

I also do not have padded bras, and only one many seamless bra. Seamless gives me crappy shape. 3 part construction gives great shape for me! And works under way more items than you would think according to conventional logic.

Even the patterns! They are part of my regular lingerie wardrobe.
Mine are all molded cup... I have yet to find an unlined bra that doesn't give me torpedo boob or armpit boob. I own 2 of them but they're my backups if something happens to my 2 regular molded cups that are in rotation

That lovely bra is hands down the absolute BEST one I've ever owned. Fits like a dream, isn't bulky and only has 2 hooks in the back. Plus, I can wear tank tops and whatnot if I want and it doesn't come up to my collarbone like a lot of larger sized bras do.

Oo, I am definitely going to check that one out! (I hate it when a supportive bra means that my cleavage starts right below my chin!)

How about "lots"? I'm too lazy to go count.

I'll estimate 5 or 6 sports bras, same number of everyday bras, a couple bras I wear only at home or in the winter when I'm wearing several layers , and a couple bras I probably should throw away.

For sports bras, I go with major compression. My everyday bras are a mix of underwires that give me that torpedo boob look like Janet Leigh in Psycho , and a few of those new Playtex bras with slight padding that come in free sizes (S, M, L, XL). They are sooo comfortable and take care of any overhang that might slip out.

I like the molded plung bra, but I only wear them with certain dresses, I'm just not as comfortable anymore unless I have full coverage for my everyday wear. Plus, when you get to a be a little too plus, time to wear something more containing around the sides and back. Also, one time I had a plung bra accident, one side was plunging just a bit way more than the other, got rid of that bra.

I tried that one on. It didn't like me....I needed a bigger cup.

It is so cute!

The Freya Deco is nice fitting as well.

Sadly, I am sizing out of it now too. I need a 32H or so. And they stop at GG

This is the next one to try on my list:

I think my chest is better suited to plunge bras with a very very small center gore which is why the Neve worked really well for me. It looks like they don't have the Neve or Jude in an H cup anymore (which is what I'm currently wearing) which is a huuuuge bummer.

I'm loving that Freya plunge, but it doesn't come in an H. Bah. I just don't like the really tall center gores and it's difficult to find a bra in my size that has a small one.

Same here.

Well, my bras are expensive to ME at about $30 to $40 a piece. Not to others I'm sure.... I prefer and wear Lane Bryant Cacique and I have five: one black, one white, one fun cotton knit polka dot one, one turquoise, one nude.

I really need to buy a strapless but it hasn't been in the budget lately.

Last time I needed bras I went to LB to verify my size then bought New With Tag bras, current styles, from Cacique, on eBay for half the price.

Me too! I also need a narrow underwire. Otherwise it just pokes my armpit. That's why most Panache hate me. But try the Deco, I only need GGs in Freyas. In general Freyas center gores aren't too high for me. And I usually fit a GG in almost all of their bras. Well, besides the Deco now. But I need to go down a band in that one. So definitely try it! Their cups seem to run big.

BTW: the Elomi plunges are pretty low! Way better than their other ones, a tiny bit wide for me, so no cleavage. But comfy. @Jet: you might need to size down to 34, they seem to run a little big in the band. I can fit a 34, but I started at the middle row of hooks, I know in a bit, it will be too big in the band for me.

Oh, I head about a new brand: Edwards and Millers. Check it out! Looks awesome, and they have long lines!!!

@Jet: they stop at 34 .

Other peeps, they start at 26 band. And up to M!!!!!!

4 Glamorise underwire (2 beige, 1 white, 1 black) and a Champion sports bra which is the worst, I just haven't got around to finding something good.
