Buying Bras - ugh!! 01-14-2005 - 08:48 AM
I've been having a heck of a time finding a decent bra that fits right AND is comfortable. Nobody seems to carry my size in the kind that I want. Since I clog, I really need good support. I don't like a lot of jiggling going on , especially if I'm performing I thought that I found some at Sears ( they usually carry one that I really like ) but once I got home and actually tried wearing them - very uncomfortable.

It doesn't help that I have a lipoma just at the bra line on my left side. My dr doesn't want to remove it as he said that the incision scar might cause me more problems than the lipoma. The only problem that it's causing is that it's in an inconvenient place and I hate being a bit lopsidded.

So, off I go, yet again, looking for THE bra that works for me. Ordering them through the internet didn't work either. I'll start at Sears - maybe they got some more in - year end inventory might be done by now. *fingers crossed*. I really really do not enjoy shopping a lot. My DD is happy though - she loves shopping. I usually end up treating her to lunch. I DO enjoy lunch

are you in between sizes? i am and its hard to find anything. our walmart just started carrying nc or nc - nearly a b or c size and they fit so much better, they are made by vassarette. I am buying one this weekend actually for myself, maybe you could try one of them?

good luck, its a terrible thing buying bras especially after this surgery, mine have gone up and down in size and cant seem to decided what size they want to be!

Hi Jean,
I hate buying bras too, and have tried them on in change rooms. I have this paranoid side of me, that says "what if there's a camera or something", and HATE to strip right down.
Consequently, most of mine don't fit well either because I don't end up trying them on first.

Believe it or not I have found the perfect bras for me at Victoria's Secret! No, not the slinky, lacy, sexy ones, I'm much too large for those, I need support. These have some slight padding, don't cut me in the back and have underwire and good support overall. Who would have ever imagined?

I used to wear 'Just My Size'. I had found a perfect bra and then they discontinued it. Story of my life and bras. When you have big breasts it's hard to find a good comfortable fit in an attractive bra. That's usually my goal.

Good luck bra shopping!

Hi, not much luck yesterday. I did find a bra the right size , it's comfortable but doesn't give me enough support. I wear a 34 C but need lots of support, good straps and still would like for it to be kinda pretty. Maybe I'm just Toooo fusy. But lately, most of the C cups come in larger measurments than a 34 it seems. I've tried Victoria"s Secret too, maybe I'll go and look again. I might even try some of the higher priced stores ( I do tend to try to be thrifty ). Ah , well, there's tomorrow and next week.....
