So I finally made it to a professonal bra fitter after much ado with victoria secret and the like. For years I have knowed that the 32 band I was wearing was to loose (I have even measued myself and most bra calculators at least put me into a 30 band) and even though I insisted upon them double checking they all said I was a 32 band size. Well finally I had a women that was determined to find the size that would fit me. Turns out I am a 28F(yes this size is real) and I really shouldn’t even wear a 30 band because my actual measurment was a 26 around.
So here is my dilemma…the store I was in only had a couple of bras in my size and almost no store in general carries my size. My question for you bees is do you know of anywhere online or a store that carries non common sizes? I have looked at Herroom but it is all so expensive and there is a very limited selection. Thanks in advance.

Yup, they’re just going to be expensive unfortunately. Your best bet is to find a specialty shop and try a whole bunch on to find out what styles fit your body best and are most comfortable. Som bras fit a bit big/small so even if they’re your size they might fnot fit quite right. You’ll have to buy a few to get yourself started, but once you know what you like I would highly recommend checking out Zulily. You can find great deals on there but you have to pounce on them and shippipng can take a while.

check https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/ (more specifically, they’re guide here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/wiki/beginners_guide)
They have a bra buying guide with lots of reputable brands and models they recommend!

you can find a lot of pricier brands from the UK on Amazon for cheaper (though still not cheap). Also, Nordstrom. It’s expensive as hell to be a not average size.

I usually go to Nordstrom every so often and buy just one new bra in a brand I haven’t purchased before, and I have the salespeople fit me to make sure I get a good fit.
There are only so many brands that will make unusual sizes like yours. Once I figure out my size in a specific brand (the cup will sometimes vary between brands – especially since some have DDD vs F, etc) then I watch for sales on barenecessities.com and order brands/sizes I know will fit.
They will email coupons and I never order without a coupon. Also, when I find a bra I know I like I will order several at a time when they’re deeply discounted.

I buy from from Nordstrom. Not cheap, but they have a great return policy

UK 32G here – My first good bra was from a boutique that fit me with a Freya and it was around $200 CAD.
Then I found these websites and now I spend about $45 – ish on one. Note – UK sizes are different so go to their size chart to convert to your country’s sizes.
asos – go to their clearance section

If you know the brand and style work for you, maybe check Ebay? Otherwise for your size I also say Nordstrom because they have a good return policy.

I wear a 34h and find that the easiest way to but bras is to check ebay out every so often and see what’s selling there. Recently I bough some Curvy Kate bras and really loved them 🙂

Thank you bees. This really helps out a lot. I will have to try to slowly switch over my bras especially since I don’t have a lot of specialty shops or a Nordstrom near by. Again thanks for the advice and helping to find places that carry my size.
