LOVE the full figured board! For you ladies like me (I’m a 38 or sometimes 40 DD) where have you found a good strapless bra? I need to get one for the wedding, but I don’t have a ton to spend and like to try them on before buying. Any favorites?
I hate that most department stores only carry up to a D or don’t go past 38. Then if they have a bigger-boobie section they’re all ugly and it’s hard to find a 38DD!

I’m a 34DD, but try brands like LeMystere, Wacoal and Natori. They are expensive, but worth it. Try websites (or stores) like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Neiman Marcus.
I LOVE my strapless LeMystere. Worth every penny.

I just got a good strapless one from Lillyette (an off-brand of Maidenform). I got it at Macy’s.

I love to buy my bras at Lane Bryant. Ever looked there for a strapless? I haven’t bought one from there yet, but I know that’ll be the first place I look for when I go dress shopping.

I get my bras from lane bryant. They have a few convertible style bras that you can wear strapless, halter, one shoulder, etc. that are comfotable. I got my long-line corset bra from David’s Bridal. They go up to a 44 I believe.

I’m also interested in a long-line.
@HotChild where do you get the LeMystere- and how expensive are we talking?

@KJPugs: Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales.
You’re looking at about $60.
For long-line, try Maidenform (even the outlets). I’ve gotten larger-sized bras from there.

I almost wee’d myself with excitement when, on a whim this weekend, I went to the Victoria’s Secret website and found that they now carry DD and DDD BRAS!!!(sadly, no strapless as of yet)
LET THERE BE MUCH REJOICING FOR THE FREEDOM FROM THE GRIPS OF BEIGE-TRAPPED NUNGA NUNGAS!!! HUZZAH!!!!!!!
Dillard’s and Figleaves has some cute stuff, too. I’ve never had much luck with strapless; it’s always been the ‘pull em back up when no one’s looking’ game. I’ve heard that if you get a band size smaller than your regular one, it helps to keep the ladies in place. Hmmm…

Lane Bryant is where I get most of my langerie. They have a huge selection and very trendy stuff. You can also try Torrid (torrid.com) or just my size.

Well I’m a bit late to the party, but as a 38G I’ve had my fair share of trouble finding bras! Usually I have to go into like 44DDD just to get my girls in the strapless cups. So not fun!
I’ve found decent success at Lane Byrant and Herroom. but I buy far go for either super cheap (Fredericks of Hollywood) I can buy 4 bra’s there for like $50! If you want good quality I go to http://www.bravissimo.com/ They are in the UK but they specialize in clothes, swimsuits and bras that fit really large chests and smaller waists! Can’t wait to get my basque from there.

i have gotten all my bras from lane bryant and i can vouch for their strapless bra because that is the only bra i wear. they hold me up all day long and are so comfortable. downside to them is that the biggest they come in is a 44. so what i have done is bought extenders for my bras and it works just perfectly. and right now they are still doing their buy 2 bras get 2 bras free.

I’m a 32DDD or 32E, and I get most of my bras at Intimacy, or Nordstrom. I usually by Chantelle or Elixir bras. Expensive, but worth it! Still haven’t found a strapless I like though…
