Yeh obviously they are cheap. But sometimes I find the fit has worked rather well on cheapos. Only problem is they don't last.

Anyway...Has anyone bought these?

Do you find they run larger, same or smaller than another brand you buy?

Is the padding on them insane (mucho)? (meaning don't buy the padded version if you are over a b cup)

(Brands: cereal, sophie & me @ forever 21)

I used to work there and I don't know how their bras fit since cheap bras don't fit me well. (i'm a 32C). but! I do know their clothes tend to run a couple sizes big, so I'm guessing their bras possibly do too.

As for padding, not all their bras are padded..just check. do you have a forever 21 near you that carries Cereal, Sophie & me? I would try them on and just see for yourself

That store is just like the name says - for young twentysomethings and I figure the bras are made for young boobs also -

I figured they wouldn't last long.
A lot of them are cute though. I'll give them that.

I own a few of the one size fits all type with no hooks; just a one piece type you pull on and it is THE most comfortable bra EVER! I hate,hate and detest a bra but thought I would try this one. The material felt very comfy and well I was right. It's great. I even forget I have it on and that's major!
I checked the label--it's made in China and is 88% nylon and 12% spandex

as for thier lasting -or not---I always handwash all such things. All my bras, cheap or expensive last a long time when taken care of.

How do victoria secret type fit you?

They were so cheap I was just going to order a few sizes and the ones that don't fit I was going to donate. I really do not like doing the dressing room thing if I can avoid it. I thought the clothing seemed a little big for what the label said too! I picked up a pair of used jeans and they were about an inch bigger than what they said they were. But the tops seem a little small in the chest.

So far I am not in need of old lady bra's just yet. I want to be able to get away with the cheapies while I can!

I was looking at some cheap-o ones at a store like that near me. You know how they all just get the same thing and slap a different label on it with those types...
Anyway..going to give them a try and let you know...

Glad it works for you but I CANNOT imagine that there could truly be a "one size fits all" bra...sorry...
<trying to imagine that oh.....Gwyneth Paltrow and say.......Dolly Parton....going to the store and battling over the last bra that would fit them both....>
