OP, after reading your post, I quickly glanced at your name and read it to say "B-Cup". I did a double-take.

This thread is timely for me. I got a bra fitting today and feel like a new person. Like others, I was wearing too big in the rib cage and too small in the cup. The result was not enough support. My new bra is snug and I am very happy.

I went into Lane Bryant two weeks ago.
I finally found some bras that are comfortable, and don't give me cone ****s! Not to mention they are cute. When you are my size, it's hard to find cute ones.

They were really nice helping and giving advice. Didn't really need measured because I had an idea of what size I was. They fit too.

I figure they see so many people topless, and its just ****s.

Me too. I have my new sleep bra on. Its very comfy. When you are as big as I am, it is nice to not be floppy everywhere.

A shout out to Fredericks of Hollywood. They are great at bra fittings. I went in and got one type of bra that looks wonderful on me (average size, DD tatas). My BFF went in and got a completely different line (larger, D tatas) that makes her look marvelous!

Also, Fred's bras are cheap and well-made. 2 for $50 or $60 and I'm still wearing some I bought 4 years ago. When I shopped at Dillards I paid $50 or more for 1 and was lucky if they lasted a year.

Did you know there is an entire show devoted to bra fittings now? I saw the adverts on hulu. I think I've seen it all on TV now..

Another good store for this is Nordstroms. Think just about everyone in the department is a certified fitter and most have experience with breast surgeries as well.
I tried Nordstrom once but the woman was horrible. I could actually fold over fabric in the cup and had a large gap between my breasts from the bra where it didn't sit against my skin and she told me that it was a perfect fit. She was crazy !

I tried lane Bryant too but the sides of the bra's are too wide there and are very uncomfortable. I am thinking of heading to a place this weekend, it has been on my mind for a while.

Those bras are basically the same size. When I couldnt find the size I needed for something ( wedding, prom, etc) I was told to go up a band size and down a cup size or vice versa.

All the fittings in the world are not going to help me. I have one side that requires one cup size and the other is 2 cup sizes bigger.

I've had 3 fittings and none of them have been correct. I've been to Lane Bryant, Victoria's Secret and Soma.

My sister had that complain about the bras there. Also, she has different sizes.
I admit, at times the sides get annoying, but its gotten better once they are worn for a while.

This thread is very similar to one a few years back that completely inspired me to go get fitted. I was excited to get similar, fantastic results that everyone else did but what ended up happening is that I got sized 3 different times at all the anchor stores of one mall (I just wanted to be sure it was done correctly) and darn if they weren't 3 different sizes. Most of the women who measured me seemed to just be young girls who were working in that department and none of them made any conversation, didn't give any recommendations or tips, etc. They just measured and told me what they came up with then scurried back to what they were doing before I came.

Thinking the third store would be the one that would determine which of the first two stores messed up in their measurements, I became frustrated and discouraged when it was yet another completely different measurement.

I want to know the best places to go; maybe I just went to the wrong places. I've never heard of a couple of the ones mentioned here that are supposed to be really good. I hope one day I can have the same experience everyone else is having. I hate wasting so much time if nothing gets accomplished.
