@priyawouldntwannabeya:   How long would the $176 bra last???

I usually spend about $50/bra… sometimes less if I get them on sale.

@priyawouldntwannabeya:  I once spent $75 on a bra.  It looked awesome, but I didn’t get that much use out of it.  In retrospect it was a waste of money.  Still if you’ve found one that fits great, is well made, and that you love the look of, I see no reason why you shouldn’t splurge once in awhile!

The one I’m wearing cost $90 and I think is worth it to spend good money on good bras. That’s a lot, but if its not breaking the bank, go for it.

@priyawouldntwannabeya:  I’m a bra blogger and Empriente almost never sells for a discount. It is a high end brand for a reason. It would be worth it to buy 1 or 2 of them and take care of them by handwashing and air drying.

I usually spend in the 25-65.00 range. I am full busted and my bras come from UK or Polish brands. Most I have ever spent was 125.00

I’m a 36DD/DDD depending on my weight at any given moment. It all goes and comes from the boobs first, which is totally annoying. 

Anyways, I will spend around $70 on a daily bra, around $100 for a step up bra, and honestly would spend up to $200 on a really beautiful bra that was in my size (extremely rare to find fine lingerie in the larger cup sizes).

@priyawouldntwannabeya:  Yes, it is expensive but if it fits you better than any other bra you have tried I say go for it. Maybe just take extra special care of the Empriente 😉

@priyawouldntwannabeya:  I don’t know if Lanebryant.com ships to canada but I LOVE their bras. I am a DDD and I have to drop money on good bras.

They commonly have buy 1 get 1 free sales. Their bras are usually around 40-50 bucks.

I usually spend $60 to $75 each. I take care of them, hand wash, drip dry, etc., and they usually last 3 to 4 years in the states. I wash once a week (yes, I have seven). Hopefully, one that expensive will give you at least that much wear, Hope that helps.

I used to be a 32G/H and had to have specialty stores order bras in from Europe, and each would cost me nearly $200. It wasn’t a matter of having money to burn, but rather of necessity. I now wear a 32DD in Calvin Klein bras, which are significantly cheaper if I purchase at the Bay. However, outside of CK (which make their bras a bit smaller) I would need a 30DD/E and I don’t know of any stores that carry bras in band size 30.
