I just bought this one and it is fantastic for a small chest:

Buy Timpa Luxury Lingerie - Timpa Duet Lace Underwire Demi bra | Journelle Fine Lingerie

It's probably not an everyday bra unless you want to replace it in a year, but fine for lounging and "intimate" fashion shows.

About 4 that fit, a few more that don't.

I'm kind of jealous of all you ladies who can buy bras in your size at a discount from the department store.

I wear a US 34J, so I have to shop online and pay ridiculous prices for something that will work.

I just got my first Cleo bra last month. It's amazing and has great support. For some reason UK bra makers excel in larger cup sizes over US companies. At one point in the not so distant past I was trying to squeeze into 36DD from department stores because for some reason most of them don't sell larger cup sizes. A well fitting bra makes all the difference in the world. When I measured and found my real size I was like .

Cleo by Panache Juna Balconette Bra 6461 at BareNecessities.com

Gotta love reddit MyWifesBusty comments on Is getting fitted for a bra as humiliating as it sounds? (Please, share your experiences, however mundane, and ease my fears.)

If anyone has their eye on a bra and is wondering how it might look on a real person, this is a cool site: http://www.bratabase.com/

I have so many bras there is no way I am pulling them all out to count- pretty certain I have more than anyone else here. Most of my "everyday" bras are VS, but they are a style no longer made, sadly. The style was named "Unlined full support", and I probably have 12 of them, in all colors. I prefer unlined - don't like molded cups - but I do have a few that are not as "stiff" as some. I recently discovered this bra

Maidenform® Comfort Devotion Demi Bra from Maidenform®

that does have very softly lined cups, and it's was such a perfect fit, and so comfortable, I bought two. I have to be careful though, it's a demi, and if I bend down, I can get a bit "discombobulated".

I have several racer-back bras as well, and 3 or 4 strapless. Also a molded-cup style VS bra - kinda fancy colors - that I bought a couple of months ago, - my BF went shopping with me and he liked it so I bought it. And I have about 3 demi-lacy styles. And a couple of Chantelles, a new racer-back Wacoal, and at least 7 or 8 really sexy types...including some bustiers that my BF goes gaga over.

So, let's see, at least 30, probably more like 35...

Let's have some fun, here!
I have about 10, all relatively new. I try not to pay more than 20 for a bra ever, so I shop sales etc.
I love nice underwear. My favorite bras are the t-shirt seamless type bras...I do like an underwire for support. I like a pretty bra, but will sacrifice pretty for comfort and support.

I'm not at home, so I can't do an official count, but I'd say about a dozen or so regular bras. Mostly molded-cup underwire, a variety of colors, but probably half are "nude" to wear under light clothes. I've got one strapless bra, and one with adjustable straps (to make halter or x-back or whatever.) I think I've got 5 sports bras--the heavy duty underwire business.

Never understood why some want loads of bra's at the one time.... I buy when I need them , not out of what draws my eye... I have three black, three patterned coloured ones, and two white... I buy as the elastic stretches or they lose colour, or for special dresses or tops..
