Not sure where I should put this, but here seems like as good a place as any.
I need a good longline strapless bra. I’m a size 30G, but all I can find in stores is like 32D’s, which are not gonna work, and I’m hesitant to order online since a lot of places that carry anything even remotely larger seem, well, a touch shady. I can probably pull of a snug 32, but I need at the very least a Dirty Delete cup, preferably larger. And I can’t have the cups come up too high- that’s the problem I’m having with my strapless, the cups come up too high and show above my dress.
Anyone have a website recommendation or something? I’d feel a lot better ordering from a somewhat unknown site if it came with some kind of recommendation…

I love figleaves.com — I’ve ordered from them a bunch, and everything’s been great. My sister has used them too. If you get on their mailing list, they have periodic 20% or free shipping sales.
Looks like they do carry a longline bra in a 30G: http://www.figleaves.com/us/product.asp?product=Gossard-Ooh-La-La-Long-Line-Strapless-Bra&product_id=GO-5738&size=30G&colour=Ivory.
ETA: just noticed that they have a note on the page about US sizing, so the 30G I linked to is equivalent to a US 30I. For a US 30G, you’d want what they have listed as a 30F. (The company is in the UK, so I suppose they do sizing a little differently.)

@happypup: Would you believe I found that site during some downtime at work today? I was thinking about ordering that bra, and good to know someone else has ordered from the site with success. I checked and the brand I wear normally (who doesn’t make a bra like this of course) is British as well, so I think 30G is my British size. Thanks!!

@pinkfrog: This is my exact dilemma right now. I’m 32G, sometimes 30. I’ve ordered a few bras off herrroom.com. Even a longline, but it didn’t fit right so I sent it back. Fortunately they have decent returns, but you do have to pay for return shipping. I hate buying online though because there are so many variables in style and fit. I’m trying to find some specialty stores nearby that might carry my size so I can try on in store. Good luck… and let me know if you find something!
