So, lets face it; I’m well endowed… like EXTREMELY. It’s such a bummer trying to find a bra that does what I want it to do at my size. It’s nearly impossible for me to find a 34DD that doesn’t make me look saggier than I already do. Seriously, all I have to work with are old granny bras. If I have this difficult of a time finding bras for everyday wear, how the heck am I gonna find something that I can wear under my dress!!!!???
Anyone got any ideas?

I wear a 32DD. I always always always wear push up bras. I love the Very Secy by VS bras.

Go to a proper lingerie shop and get fitted. Yes, you may pay more for the bra, but with proper care it will last a long time.

You should give the Chantelle bras a try. They’re actually adorable, and work super well. They’re also super expensive, but worth it. I totally feel your (literal) pain, I’m a 34G.

There are a lot more DD+ bras available in the UK and a lot of the UK lingerie websites now have distribution bases in the USA. Might be worth looking at Figleaves or Bravissimo (both of whom do HUGE DD+ ranges).
The current estimate is that the average UK woman is now a 34DD/E (I’m a 34F). It might be worth going and getting re-fitted as a PP suggested. If you look saggy in the size that you think you are, you might not actually be that size.
There’s a great fitting guide on Bravisssimo: http://www.bravissimo.com/perfectfit/ Well worth a look!

I second the idea about going to a shop to get fitted. And try to avoid Victoria’s Secret because they seem to have trouble getting fittings right. I went to a small local shop to get fitted and at VS they told me I was a 36 D but at this other shop I was told I am a more like a 34 H or so. Depending on the brand, I usually find 36 DDDs that fit well.
I also suggest trying to order from herroom.com for bridal lingerie. They have a super good return policy so you can try on hard to find sizes with your dress and find one that works. Good luck!

I have one word for you: Nordstrom. They do the best bra fittings, and they can point you to the ones that will be best for your figure. I personally love Wacoal bras, although they cost an arm and a kidney. They’re super comfortable, hold me up, and last a long time (as long as you don’t put them in the dryer).

Go to Nordstroms and get a proper fitting. I am a 36F and am much more comfortable (and supported) since I went there and got properly fitted for a bra. When you’re well-endowed, it’s worth it to make an investment into your bras.

I travelled around the world when I was 17 and did a lot of lingerie shopping and VS were the worst fitters I found anywhere
. I was told that I was a 38B even though the back strap was riding up like crazy and the cups were giving me six boobs instead of the two I was born with.

I wear a 40DDD so trust me I feel your pain!
I go to Lane Bryant to get ALL of my bras! They make ones that are convertable so I can criss cross the straps in the back and I have amazing support and really nice perky “girls” without my back killing me!
I don’t spend more than $40 on a bra!

Do you know what the smallest band size they carry are? 🙂

I also want to throw the nordstroms suggestion out there! They have the best fittings! Fredericks of Hollywood does fittings too. I get all of my bras from Lane Bryant or Fredericks. I had myself in the wrong size for the longest time. Now I know and I have cute and sexy bras for my 44DDD girls.

The smallest band they carry (in store at least) is 38. I am a 36DD, but comfortably wear 38DD at Lane Bryant.
Try the body by Victoria Multi Way, I bought it for the wedding and LOVE it, it is seriously the best strapless bra of all time! HOWEVER, I agree with PP, get fitted elsewhere first!

I swear by Lane Bryant bras. I always get them when they have their buy 2 get 2 free sale. I wear a 42 DD/DDD so I feel your pain as well.
