This is mainly for A-cup bees 🙂
So ladies, what brand of bra do you prefer?
I am a 34A, and basically all of my bras are Victorias Secret… and I need new ones, but they are SO expensive.
Do you have any favorites, other than VS?
I went shopping around Kohls the other day, but almost ALL of the Acups had padding, and I don’t really like much padding (I like the ‘what you see is what you get’ slogan haha).
Also, I only barely fill out an A, so I don’t really need much support, I just want something to help give me a nice (non-pointy: I swear my boobs think I’m still just now hitting puberty) shape.
I just want a good quality, not-bank-breaking, padless bra.
To the point: Any suggestions of bras? Cheap, nice shape, no padding?

I’m an A, and have only had luck buying bras from Victoria’s Secret and Fredrick’s of Hollywood. I tried a bra from the local Hanes outlet years ago, and it was awful.

AdoreMe has quite a few styles and the first set is only $25. On-line is tricky for fitting, but I have to becuase I can’t find my size in stores.

I know this isn’t helpful but as a 32F I just wanted to pop in and say I’m totally jealous! Oh, to not have to worry about support…..It seems like if you’re not a 34C it’s super hard to find a good bra! I get mine at Knickers of Hyde Park in Cincinnati and they specialize in correct fittings. They’re amazing!

VS bras are far too large for my cup. I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m actually an AA cup. Anyway, for non padded bras look into lace “bralettes.” My everyday bras are Calvin Klein and specialty/decorative ones are from Aerie. Aerie tends to have sales fairly often but I noticed the last few bras I ordered had huge gaps between my breasts and the bra so I’m not sure if that’s a quality control issue or some weird sizing going on. They’ve got some pretty good push ups too.

Target has wire-free invisible t-shirt bras called “simply perfect” by Warner’s. I bought one a while back on a whim and it is seriously the most comfortable and flattering bra I have ever had in my life. I was a 100% VS girl before this, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to underwire (because we 34A gals really don’t need it). Here’s the link to them online:
$14 each FFS. It’s definitely worth checking out!!! I’m about to buy a bunch more!!! My boobs look totally normal and good under tight shirts, and the shirts can’t get sucked up into the bottom of it like they can with older underwire bras. Ugh I love them so much.

No help here- I’m also a small A (quite possibly an AA) and I can only wear the VS pink collection bra’s =( All their regular A’s are far too large in the cups & create big gaps between my lil boobs & the cup… Sucks because all their super nice bra’s are not in the pink line, also I haven’t been in college for over 5 years now & I would love to be able to shop in the “adult ladies” section not the 12-16 girls section…
I would check online & see if they have any coupons? I won’t usually buy any new bras without one since they are so pricey…. I’ve been wanting to try a bra form a specialty small titty company- there’s a few in San Fran & LA but I haven’t made it there yet mainly because theire bra’s are more than twice the price of VS…

As a 34A, I would love more options than Victoria’s Secret! $40 or more for a bra is insane.
@iarebridezilla: What kind of shape does this bra give? I love my VS underwire bras because I feel supported (for what little I have) and I have a lovely rounded shape, so I am curious because similar bras to the one you posted tend to be pointy. Also, is there enough material in the cups not to show through on a cold day?

@BeckyS0: I’m there with ya. The really nice ones all start at C cups.

@LeonardLady: I only buy Victorias Secret! My favorite store ever! Sry i couldn’t help

Thanks for the responses everyone!
@iarebridezilla: I think I’ll try those! I’m with AmpersandStyle… what sort of shape does it give?

I’m probably a large A/small B. I like Victorias Secret extra push up bras… These girls need all the help they can get!

@LeonardLady: the shape is totally normal and booblike– not pointy at all. I totally know what you mean though about avoiding the pointiness – I have had terrible luck with cheap bras because small boobs just can’t really take any shape besides what the bra gives, and they don’t have enough volume for push-up bras to look right. These ones look awesome under any and all shirts, I swear. And they’re plenty thick for nipple duty, haha. Seriously go to target and try one on. Prepare to have your world rocked!!

@JenGirl: I feel the same way lol. Sooo jealous! I even had a reduction and am still a C!
