Red face OT-women only

I need some help.. I need a bra. A good underwire bra. I have been blessed with large ones(if u can call it a blessing) and after three children I need something to hold them up better....

I do not care the price, because all of them I own break the wire, or the side wire KILLS me under my arm. I am at a loss of what to do? I have went to lane Bryant, bought at kohls.. Olga Bali, etc.. Anyone PLEASE help.

I am also "blessed". Try Victoria's Secret. My best ones have come from there. If you have a store near you, get an employee to measure you and she'll help you get a good one. They don't just have lacy, skimpy push-up bras. They have full-coverage functional bras for those of us who are well-endowed. They are expensive but very worth it. Plus, They last a long time.

I agree with this. They are the best bras I ahve ever bought...expensive, but worth it.

Does Victoria Secret carry bigger cups finally? I'm a 38 DD, and they told me they don't carry that size. I like Felini I believe Nordstrom, and Macys carry them. Their is another one I like, but my morning coffee hasn't kicked in, and I can't remember. I'm sure soon it will pop in my head.

Wacoal I walked in my bedroom, and checked I believe Dillard's, Macy, and Nordstroms sells them. Nordstroms also has free shipping, and a very liberal return policy.

When I was a little smaller like a full C I always felt VS was overpriced flimsy bras. Also Layne Bryant bras are made by the same manufacture that VS gets theirs from. If you don't like them you won't like Victoria Secret.

I agree with buying from Victoria's secret. I'm a 36DD, and that is the only place I have found that offers a bra with support that lasts. I went into the store to be measured, and then bought one bra in the store. After that, I bought the same style bra online in a couple different colors. There is a MUCH better color selection online for larger sizes than there is in the store.

I know they do carry some DD. I would have them measure you though. Some of their styles are not really DD like their pink collection, a DD in pink is like a C.

A friend of mine get her bras at layne bryant and they have a seperate bra store called soma? Their bras are really cute.

She wears a DD at soma I wear a DD at VS, and well, mine are nowhere as big as hers lol So I would have both places measure you, since they both sell 38 DD and see what you like

BTW, I wear a 34DD and VS seems to be the only ones who carrry that size. They have coupons, so I always wait for a $10 off and/or a free panty.

they absolutely do
and if you can find a VS outlet, the prices are amazing (there is one in riverhead, long island). they normally have a good selection also. the bras i prefer in 32/34DD are usually about $13 at the outlet, $45-50 retail just try to never go after a holiday weekend - they get wiped out of a lot.

The same company makes their bras. The Wacoal and Felini are excellent quality. I think way better than VS. I dont have issues with wires or them falling apart. I also get some of mine made at a local bra shop.

Also you may want to try a E cup it could fit better than a DDD they are very close in being the same.

I thought I liked Victoria's Secret until discovering Bravissimo. Amazing. I look slimmer, the wires don't poke me now and I am more supported.

They carry a lot of brands, all in cup sizes D and up.

I personally prefer Panache bras. They suit my shape.

The most important thing is to get fitted properly. So many women wear the wrong size. Dillards, Macy's, Belk, Nordstroms all have folks who have been trained to measure you properly.

If you want a smaller store, check to see if you have a Soma. The folks that work there will also make sure you are fitted properly.
