I definitely recommend Victoria’s Secret. I worked there for a year and a half and know their bras are good.
You’re not going to be super comfy in most strapless bras because the ones that stay put really well have the rubbery stuff in the wings so they don’t move around.
You need to get measured so you know your current bra size (It changes with weight changes and you should get measured every 6 months)
And when you pick out the strapless, everyone wants to make it more comfy by getting one thats looser. No no no. Get one that is snug. Not digging in or suffocating but one that’s snug. That makes it stay better. And also not so stug that anything hangs over or pooches out of course lol.

Good luck!

I too used to work at Victoria’s Secret and highly recommend them.  Have you looked at the 100-way bra they have?  I swear, it’s so awesome, the front part between the cups not only is low, it’s clear, allowing you to wear pretty much as low cut of a dress as you want.  The straps can also be moved to any position around the cups and back strap, as well as turned into a halter or strapless, or made into a low back bra. I got it for my trip to Mexico (along with about 11 cute VS dresses) and it worked for every one of them.

I tried VS, having had moderate success with them before, but was in a bad mood and became quite annoyed with the 12 year old attempting to help me. She just didn’t get how post-childbirth boobies work. Getting fitted at Nordstroms is my next move, and perhaps add an addition of chicken cutlets.

VS has a strapless bra that’s liked with a microfiber material now… my 34DD BM got one for her strapless dress. When she tried it on she was jumping up and down all over the dressing room, and that sucker didn’t budge!

I recommend VS as well, I get the very sexy bras, they have a deep plunge but really push them up!  And the tops are rounded because the straps can attach inside, not the old ones where its still a "v" on top.

I love VS bras too – but they just don’t fit me well at all, I am small and big busted 32D I found this one that is beautiful and fits really well – gives me lift etc but it is expensive!! 85.00

I love VS!!! They’re more comfy than other bras and last awhile if you take care of them right!

Definitely VS-I just got a new one during their semi-annual sale and it is HEAVEN!  I’m a 34DD and it doesn’t slip or budge in any way!  🙂  Let me see the style…  *walks away for a sec** …it’s a bio-fit multi-way :)!

If  you don’t want to do VS, when I worked at a bridal salon, I heard many girls say they were going to tape them! NO JOKE! Apparently this is common, too. to each their own!!

I ended up at Norstrom’s and came out with an awesome bra, gel inserts, and double sided tape. Very, very pleased with the whole experience, and the girls will look great!
