It's SO much better than buying bras in a department store, where you have to keep going back with all kinds of different brands and sizes and styles, most of which don't fit -- and then when you're done, fit the straps back into those teeny little hangers.


 :laugh: :laugh:  This goes a long way towards summing up much of what I can't stand about bra shopping.  And, you're totally right!  The teeny hangers are horrible!!!
 :laugh: :-\

I got a proper fitting at Bravissimo a few months - ago - bes thing I've done in ages.

I went from a 38D - which I thought fitted fine to a 32 FF or a 32G - my shape looks amazing now. It took a bit of gtting used to the tightness of the bra but my shape does look good and I dont hang out of it at all now.


So Id say go get fitted somewhere that is GOOD!

It does not have to be akward now. They're very good at giving your privacy.

I'm a 36C and I usually just buy Hanes bras. Anyone that shops at Victoria's Secret, can you tell me what bras you like best? As far as support and a little lift. I don't want a lot of lift, don't want clevage around my neck.  :laugh:    I don't like underwires but it's hard to find bras that don't have it. Any suggestions?

I tried on a shirt with darts....the darts I thought are SUPPOSED to hit right at your nipples...or am I wrong?? well these darts came up PAST the armpits....whose nipples are ABOVE their armpits?? seriously! I dont' think even implants will get you THAT high up in the air! Whose nipples are three inches from their shoulders??

I am gonna go look at nekkid women pictures....if I can find any...I need a ruler...

i hear y'all on the bra fitting thing.  i can't find the right size anywhere.  i'm definately getting a pro to 'size me up' next time i'm in nanaimo (closest major city).  there's nothing here for that kind of thing.  i think my cup size needs to go up, and my number needs to go down, thanks to years of breastfeeding and excess skin.  lol

and for all you who need a good female laugh, here's something i saw on mad t.v. a while ago.  very funny.

I dont wear a bra very often.......but recently did need one and went to a lingerae shop to buy one.

What if found when I was trying them on, was that I needed a bit more in the back, and not as much in the cup....going down a size, made it too tight, going up a size and I did not fill the cup.....Finding the style, then the correct size and cup size combination, was just NOT happening.

Then the lady in the shop showed me these little strips of material, with hooks and eyes, that you clip onto the bra hooks, and give the bra anything up to an extra inch and a half  in the back. OH glory be, I found a lovely style, nice snug cup fit, and with the extra bit clipped on the back, it felt very comfortable.

Not that it converted me...I still hate the darn things, and buy most of my clothes accordingly, so that they can be worn without a bra and still look nice. I'm lucky I am only a small build, and if I want to dress up my breasts and make them look sexy, I find a nice lacy camisole looks pretty.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Also, I envy anyone who has a small build/breast size. Me, I'm a 20d and half the time I feel completely idiotic and or ugly, the other half just very peeved. But I guess that will change once I lose some weight. Excellent.

Sincerely, Kat.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

If all is not lost, then where is it?

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

We are nearly boob-size twins Kelda- I am 30G! (well I was before getting preggers!!)  I love Bravissimo & would certainly recommend a fitting by a lingerie specialist shop especially if you have any special concerns like a bra for a special occasion or are possibly a bit of an unusual size, like small back & big cup. 

Bras are a bit of a mystery to me as I can be a different size in different styles even of the same brand, which can be very frustrating.  & don't mention the nightmare of maternity bras & even worse: nursing bras  :o   Did you know sometimes even the identical bra in different colours will fit slightly different because of the different coloured dye used affecting the material differently?

So how was the fitting trip? It's not quite the same as a visit to the gynae but it's sort of up there  ;D

Anyone that shops at Victoria's Secret, can you tell me what bras you like best?

I like the "Body by Victoria" line. They're seamless, not much padding (just sort of thick synthetic fabric for the cups), supportive and pretty comfortable. However, they do have underwires.

But VS has a number of different styles, including some -- I think -- without wires.

Thanks for that suggestion. As long as the underwires are well padded, I don't mind them.
