I realize "cheap" and "comfortable" bras may seem like a misnomer but just curious if anyone knows of any? I am disabled to the point I can't work and my husband is the breadwinner so I hate spending lots of money on bras, but I am looking for some that are at least a reasonable price yet good and comfortable.

Oh, bras can be horrendously expensive, especially if you are out of range of what's generally sold in stores, as I am. So when I find a bra that is a good fit, I look for that one on eBay. Most of my bras I get for half price or so that way (new, of course!). It's also good hunting, and very rewarding when you find that $50 bra for under $20 including shipping!

I had been wearing expensive bras until I tried this bra. It's a Maidenform that I accidentally discoverd at Walmart. The style number is SN1321. They are less than $15. I now have several of them and they are washing and wearing much better than some of my expensive bras. I'm going to purchase several more since it seems like anything I really like usually gets discontinued.

I've found them online and in the store.

Don't think of it as spending a lot though. How often do you purchase bra's? If you are like me and keep them for years, you'll want to spend the money on a great fitting and great constructive bra.

But bras stretch out and their fit is compromised over time. They do not last years!

I am all for spending enough to get something flattering and well fitting, but I have yet to meet a bra worn regularly that fits well after more than a year, maybe 2 if you are lucky. Sports bras seem to hold up the best.

I wear Bali Comfort bra, similar to the one posted above, but a bit more "bra-like." I love it because it is wireless and has convertible straps (you can cross them in back). They are almost like a (more) comfortable sports bra, but I have noticed they have become hard to find lately.

Agree with buying on Ebay. Also, wash them by hand and never put in the dryer, they will last a lot longer. Or machine wash but in a lingerie bag.

My go-to is Maidenform. I buy them when Macys has them on sale for $14. You can also find them at Ross and Marshall's for really cheap.

Yes, that's what I have dealt with as well. My husband gets me bras when I need them but it really as awful how quickly they seem to go bad. Being disabled my husband has to help dress me as well so yeah.
