Maybe I'm a cheapskate but I can't bring myself to pay 30+ (even more than 20 I want to cry...) for a freakin' bra.

I went to Kohl's today and figured I'd peruse their bra selection while I was there. "Buy 1 get one free!" the signs said and the bras were 30-40. Uhm...with 30 dollars, I at least want 3 pairs of bras, not two.

Am I being a cheapie?

I'm trying to find a website that has some cheap bras. I found some cheap ones on the JustMySize website but the band size is too big for me.

I hate it too. It seems that is the basic price anymore if you are paying full retail. Check out victoria secrets clearance:

Victoria's Secret
Put in your size. I saw some that were around 10-15$

Also:

Go to places like Marshall's and TJMaxx. They have name-brand bras that are in great condition for a lower price just because they're "out of season" (like I care to be in-season when my bf and I are the only ones viewing those items? And bf usually is too busy trying to rip 'em off than to notice whether or not they're in season). My favorite is a CK Bra with ubersoft fabric and stretch that was $14 and a WONDERFUL playtex (yeah, who woulda thunk it!?) bra for $7 that is the best-supporting bra I have so far.

At $30, a B1G1F bra works out to only $15/bra.

Fredericks of Hollywood. They have some pretty good sales and coupons.

Of course, I have giant tatas, so that's basically the only place I can shop

Yeah, I know.

I am sure they will have more bras when I go back. They weren't all that busy. I am sure they will have some when I go back.

I am considering Target and Wal-Mart. My mom said she saw some good ones for about $9.
