Do you live near a Nordstrom?  I had searched high and low for a strapless bra that fit as I am a 32 Dirty Delete and had NEVER been able to find one that fit correctly.  I looked at Nordstrom as a last ditch effort and was amazed to see the size selections they have.  I ended up getting this one (in a 32D as the consultant advised me they run deep in the cup) and it is the most comfortable, best fitting strapless bra I have ever had.

Even if you don’t live close to one they have free shipping and return shipping so you could order one and always send it back if need be.

Hope that helps and good luck!  I know how frustrating it can be!

I actually found one from VS that is amazing! I have never in my life found a strapless bra that would stay up on my, or make my boobs look relatively decent, but this one makes them look amazing! Perky 🙂 which is hard for a strapless haha. It is extremely lightly padded (just enough for.. in case you get cold or whatever ), has straps that are removable, and also comes with an extra set of clear straps. I dont know what it’s called but.. if you go in, they ususally only have one or two straless bras at a time so its worht checking. This one looks like a normal bra (not some weird formed tube thing like usual) and has a tiny round metal charm in the middle. Anyway, its worth a shot since it is inexpensive and I think its amazing. And I have 32Dirty Delete to 32DDD and wear a 0 or 2 in pants, so trust me, I am familiar with the slender and busty dilemnas. Anyway, I know how hard the hunt for a perfect bra can be, so I wish you all the best in your hunting!

@rainbowglitterbride:  for what its worth, Im a 32d and have been shopping there for years.  They always have amazing sales.  Once I outgrew VS I needed something else and even tho VS is slowly starting to carry bras now in our sizes I cant beat the price at fredercks.

@rainbowglitterbride:  I second the bra selection at Nordstroms, maybe Macys.  When you go, get a bra fitting.  I used to wear VS 36/38D and thought the same thing about how sizes change depending on the style and brand of the bra.  Once I got professionally fitted (not the “fitting” they do at VS), I found out I was a 34 Dirty Delete and I wear this size in every style and brand.  It sounds like you need a good bra fitting- it will do wonders.

Cup sizes always increase with band sizes — it’s the way bra sizing works, but for some reason the bra-fitting world doesn’t seem to want us to know that. If the cup on a 36C fits you but you need a 32 band, then you’ll find that at least a 32Dirty Delete is the best fit.

Where do you live? If you happen to be in the vicinity of North Carolina, I’d highly recommend you check out A Sophisticated Pair (http://www.sophisticatedpair.com/index.htm). Their website has some great fitting advice as well.

If you do find you need a smaller band/bigger cup size but can’t find a good store near you, then your best bet is to order something online. Figleaves is a great online store and they have a huge range of DD+ strapless bras here: http://www.figleaves.com/us/ranges/dd/lingerie/20539/20563/#term=&dept=dd&category=&subcategory=lingerie&answerhandle=20539&searchhandle=A%3dTNrange+not+in+olet~B%3dTNrange+not+in+olet~&pageno=1&sort=8&pagesize=28&colours=&sizes=&brands=&maxprice=195&[email protected]~&deptcat=20563&minprice=5&islmin=5&islmax=195&fo=ItemTypes–STRAPLESS~&cups=&bra=&clothing=&cosmetics=&shoes=&mensclothing=&productid=&productcolour=&bboost=&gender=&rating=undefined
