I got mine online.  I ordered three bras. Two fit really well, one fit perfectly.  I think I ordered from http://www.herroom.com…  they had a good return policy i remember.

I probably bought 6 different one’s and returned them. Although, I did not buy anything else there I actually found my bra at david’s bridal.  It worked out fantastically! It was a long line and did keep me in and the girls up all night long! I’m a 40Dirty Delete

My favorite places to buy bras are Fredricks of Hollywood and Lane Bryant, Caciquce or something is the brand! Love it!

I just bought a few at Lane Bryant this weekend (they’re currently having a buy 2 get 2 free sale). The ones that I purchased have detachable straps but they also come with clear straps. Let me tell ya, they make the girls look damn good!

@UpstateCait: I couldn’t find any long line bras at cacique.  That however is where I buy all of my other bras. I love that stinking place !

If you can – I highly recommend going to a professional fitter.  I took a trip to NYC just for my bridal bustier.  It was well worth it.  I went to Orchard Corset and am so happy with my selection and the service is excellent. 

It’s not doable for everyone but definitely look for a speciality store for this type of thing.

Try this: http://brashop.com/

They have a bra shop near me and they have LOTS of sizes. They will let you return within 30 days, too.

if at all possible, go to a professional store that does european real sizing. most of these stores carry up to like 52K size. you may have seen one of the main stores that do this on oprah called Intimacy, but they only have a few stores in big cities. they do have a list though that have stores that use the same methods in other places. i don’t know where in ohio you are, but there are a few there –  http://www.myintimacy.com/images/stories/intimacy-retailers.pdf

i’m a Dirty Delete and they gave me a number of choices in the longline bra style (instead of just 1 style)

I’ve been to this place and it’s great, but I haven’t perused the website so I don’t know their return policy for online purchases.

@jindc: i haven’t been there but me and my sister (both DDs) went to Trousseau in Vienna for our corset/longline bras http://www.trousseaultd.com/

I have also taken my mom and a few friends there. they’re great with fittings and options and do free alterations.

I ordered my bustier from herroom.com.  Return policy is great. It took me two trys to find the right one. My seamstress recommended the site.
