I know the feeling. I can't find one store that has my size. I fluctuate from 46 f to g or h. I am a nursing mom and the average store does not have my size so I went to Lane Bryant to buy my bras or Catherine's. You didn't mention your size I could give you some good stores in your town.

I honestly don't know what size. I guess I just need to bite the bullet and get fitted. I have looked online and tried to do it myself, but I just can't find a comfortable bra!

i have heard that over 50 percent of women do not wear the correct bra size...thats huge! i generally wear sports bras because i find them to be the most comfortable.

Yes, I have heard it's a huge number too! I also prefer sports bras, but unfortunately they do not always work. And they aren't the most flattering. :(

I have a problem finding bras too. I used to wear a sports bra because it fit and wasnt expencive and I have one side bigger than the other. Thats untill I went to Victoria Secret. I went in a told the lady I need a bra and thats all I know. She laughed at me. LOL She sized me then put me in a dressing room and brought me bras in my size. She even looked at them on me and told me what she thought. I am a mom so I wanted something to give me a little lift and show some cleavage. She found Exactly what I wanted by the 4th bra!! I was SOOOO Happy! I know it was expencive..45$..but I only had to pay it once and the bra lasts forever!! Its so comfortable and makes me look good!! LOL Its so worth the 50$ to have one that fits and will stay good for a long time to come. Plus they make you feel special by catering to you. LOL

I'm glad to hear you had such a pleasent experience! Where do you live? I have tried a few different Victoria Secrets and have never come out with the right bra, and the last few times can't even get anyone to help me. Maybe I'll try again because the only other place I know has bras $100 and up. Thanks!

I could never find a bra that fit that looked good on me. I look to show a little cleavage and the proper fitting bras usually required me to wear shirts that only had a button or two loose. They were very wide strapped and not adjustable. I went to Additionelle and finally got a bra that fit and that allowed me to wear the kind of blouses and t=shirts that I liked. So if you are large sized, go to a store that specializes in large sized women only, they often have bras specifically made for them and since many teenagers are also large-sized, they have clothes in the current style, just cut a little larger.

Have you been fitted? I have a heck of a time finding the right size! I have to go to a mall store to get my bras 34D's aren't easy to find. I think J C Pennies is doing a bra fit event. :) Victoria's Secret and Dillards do it all the time.

No, I haven't. I guess I will have to do that. I tried to look online to figure out my size, but I must have done something wrong. I should just leave it to the professionals. Thanks!
