I have had some great luck at TJ Maxx. Good quality bras for a cheap price. I usually buy all the ones in my size when I go and stash then away πŸ™‚ You can find DDDs online at Wal-Mart too. They are okay. Don’t last too long, but good for the price.

I get mine at Victoria’s Secret. I am a 32 DDD. I rock the semi annual sale. My size isn’t very popular so there are still a bunch left near the end when they are on super sale!

I don’t know if they carry the big-boobie sizes because I’m on the smaller side but I know some of my friends who are harder to fit went to aerie and had a good experience with them. A lot of my own bras are from aerie and they tend to last quite a while. πŸ™‚

Zulily is really great for bras so long as you’ve had the chance to try the brand in person and know how it fits (or are willing to risk it).

The downside is obviously that they don’t carry stock full time, a lot of lingerie items do show up often, but you can’t count on it.

Other than that I rely on local shops as VS etc don’t carry my size (32G (UK) or 32I (US)). Soft cup styles tend to be a bit more forgiving as far as cup sizes go, it can just strech to fit if the size is slightly to small. Surprisingly, Britney Spears brand fits really great, but I’ve not found it available online. If you’re in the US you can try Amazon if you have a specific bra you want.

Nordstrom Rack.  There is usually more selection online  for the larger sizing but sometimes I see better deals in store.

Try the subreddit “a bra that fits”! They will give you tips on determining your breast shape so you can find the best brands and styles. I used that to narrow down some options I wanted to try, then ordered from bare necessities. They have free returns and tons of sales! Many of the bras are on the pricier side but you can find good discounts, and they will last a long time if you take good care of them.

I am between a 28-30 FF-G cup, so I know your pain! I’d go and get sized in a few places as I have been sized at whatever the smallest-band/biggest cup-size the shop carried, rather than my actual size! In the UK Bravissimo is a great place for “larger” sizes, and brands like theirs and Freya are my personal favourites πŸ™‚ a website called figleaves also stocks different sizes! AND mimi-holiday is a great choice for something sexier πŸ˜‰ good luck. x x x

30H US sizing checking in! I followed all the correct bra sizing guides, got fitted, searched the internet and Nordstrom and put together a great collection of Freya and Panache bras. After all that, I went back to poor VS sizing, 34DDD unlined because the wires were more comfy on my rib cage.

Go to a REAL lingerie store (not Victoria secret)… They should probably have some things for you, and once the fit you in your preferred brand, you should head to herroom.com. They have tons of brands, a ridiculous assortment, and awesome sales pretty frequently.  I swear by the brand Freya (I’m a 34g)- the bras aren’t matronly and they make bathing suits, too!!

I’m a 32DDD and have always bought my bras at Victoria Secret but after too many underwires poking out too soon after purchasing, I too am looking for better options! But they are so expensive! I’m considering adoreme.com

Huds:  Bra size twins! LOL. Out of sheer curiosity, may I ask what size dress do you wear?

maymrswinks:  LOL twinies!! I wear a two! It is a little big at the waist but fits the bust fine even with my VS padded bras! Some dresses I get taken on at the waist a smudge. I am a zero in pants so I size up for dresses to fit the girls. I think my wedding dress is a six though.

I’m 36DDD and I LOVE Victoria’s Secret.  It may be because for my first 15 years in bras, I spent them in ill-fitting Walmart bras lol.  I just take super good care of them so they last forever.  I can’t afford to spend $50 on bras all the time.  Been wearing them for about 3 years, and the only reason I’ve ever had to buy new ones were because I lost weight–never because they wore out!  πŸ™‚
