Try Victoria’s Secret but I suspect your hand will be forced to shop online for more options in your size.

Have you ever been to a real shop other than Victoria Secrets to get measured… that’s the largest size they carry so if you’re large they say your a Dirty Delete..

I would look for an undergarment shop in your area, idk where that is or I’d look for one for you, and go get measured by a professional… they should also carry a variety of strap/strapless/bustier types in their store =)

@runsyellowlites: ya and even if you’re a real Dirty Delete, you don’t fit in there anyway. VS doesn’t work for me even though I’ve been measured at a 38Dirty Delete at 3 other places. It’s a little sad.

I have 3 strapless bras. One from Fashion bug $48, one from Cacique (which is owned by the same people as Fashion bug) $68, the one that stays up and causes no issues with overflow, back fat or slipage, it’s from Target and it was $21.99 LOL.  Try them on everywhere you might be surprised what you can find.

Try Nordstrom.  If you need a longline, Davids Bridal carries the Dominique brand.  However, the size definitly runs weird, so go in to try on.  If this is for under your wedding dress, a long line will give you more support.

@Georgia Bee: I agree with David’s Bridal, too :). Cacique (which you would find at Lane Bryant’s) is a good brand, too, but their bras tend to wear out pretty fast (or at least they do once I get my chest into them, lol). I honestly wouldn’t even bother with Victoria’s Secret. They just add more fabric to their bras, they don’t actually change around any of the support system for bigger-chested girls, and I think we all know a size A needs different types of support than a Dirty Delete. 

But anyway, I got a strapless longline from David’s Bridal for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, and it’s actually pretty great. The corset back makes me feel really secure and it’s not moving around as I do. Wherever you buy it from, though, I would definitely get a longline!

@runsyellowlites: OMG! Tell me about it! Prior to being educated about it, I went into a VS and asked if they carried my bra size (at the time it was 32G) – the attendant looked at me like I had 6 heads then proceeded to tell me that such a size certainly doesn’t exist and that even if it did, I didn’t look THAT big. She took out a measuring tape and wrapped it around me and said: “See, you’re a 38DD” – this was the middle of winter and I was wearing a ski jacket! VS is useless for bigger girls.

 

to OP: Nordstrom is great and sometimes, you can get lucky in Macy’s. If you decide to change your mind about buying online, figleaves.com and barenecessities.com are awesome!

@RinaRoo lol… I’m not well endowned by any means but I’ve seen enough girls get mis-sized that I won’t even have them measure me…. I mean the last time I gave in and let them, NOTHING in that size fit right. lol

@mwitter80 Yes, Cacique is awesome! Best bras for under $50!
