What is your price range Op ? then maybe we can direct you better I myself spend quite a bit since I buy like 6 or 7 bras at a time, and then rotate them . I hand wash and I never dry them in the dryer I have a hand wash rack dryer with clips that I use and it works great . So please post your price range and then maybe we can send you there thanks

Maybe for you. For me, that would look horrible. A properly fitting bra is an essential, there is no way to avoid bras. It just isn't comfortable. And bralettes, those new school super stretchy bras etc are all basically pointless on me. I guess they kinda work for sleeping, but I can't get proper fit on them.

This is not a high-end site by any means but I have bought many, many bras on this site over the years. I take an odd cup size in relationship to the numeric size and it is the only place I have found something that works for me. I also have one breast smaller than the other from surgery. Now I am really out of whack from a lumpectomy and radiation on the other breast. Also, I live in Central Fl and the heat puts a lot of strain on bras with sweat, etc and they are washed frequently. I hate bras and get them off as soon as possible. Also, I am an active 73 yr old.


Yes, I do own a few more expensive bras. I used sites dedicated to bras only. They cost somewhat more but I didn't think the extra cost made a whole lot sense.


Oh yes, this site sends paper catalogs that has some other sales on bras that I don't see here, it looks like.


It works for me. Just a suggestion. Don't need any blow back about it a second tier retail though they do carry name brands.

It seems that all bras available nowdays have the exact same hemispheric cup with some shaping. I'm sure everybody knows what I mean. I like the bras from the 50's. I suppose they are called bullet bras. These are more the true shape of a woman. I am a D so I need good lift. I have discovered Playtex style 4422. Two or three when washed and dried correctly do last for years.

I don't like underwires or padding either. I've found bras without either of those, and that are pretty comfortable in the Playtex 18 Hour brand. These run about $18-22 (occasionally on sale for less) in Walmart, K-Marts.

You mean those bras that make your breasts look like the front of two battleships under a sweater or shirt?

Can't see as those resemble natural breasts, though. Must say I prefer the rounded look.

I've gotten most of my bras at Target.

I've bought expensive bras at the Bali store and Victoria's Secret. They are NOT worth the money, as far as quality.

The ones at Target may or may not last a long time, but they haven't cost much, so I sure got my money's worth. I've been lucky that most of them have lasted for years. NOTE: I WASH THEM ON DELICATE CYCLE AND HANG THEM TO DRY. I NEVER put them in a dryer.

I get my panties there, too. No reason to pay a lot for those things. If the elastic wears out, no big deal. They didn't cost much.

As for brands, I can't tell you the brands I got. I got different brands at Target, except that I recall that I bought a couple of Playtex there, of the more modern variety. Playtex can be uncomfortable for me, or old lady looking, but some versions are more modern and comfortable. Playtex is pretty high quality, IMO.
