I Cant Buy Nice Bra's

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 376 People

    Perhaps I Should Become a Designer?

    When I was 9 years old in the 3rd grade, having never so much as worn a training bra or needed one, I woke one morning to breasts.  They were rather large breasts too.  C cups over night it would seem.  I could wear my mother's bras.  It was so terribly...

    My Cups Are Significant, But Too Small For My Band Size

    I'm somewhere around a 48 B (in USA measurements).  My breasts are certainly NOT flat, but my chest is just too broad to find a "regular" bra that fits.I may someday use my sewing skills to reduce the cup on an existing bra, to see how that works.

    I Just Want A Cute Bra!!

    Even when I travel 20 miles to the specialty bra shop that actually carries large cup/small band bras, and even when I'm willing to shell out big $, I still can't do better than the basic black/white/nude... though occasionally with a bit of lace. I want a purple bra! Maybe...

    I simply cannot buy nice bras

    because it would look weird as ****. But if a future girlfriend needed me to buy her stuff I guess that'd be my exception

    Big Boobs

    It isnt fair. Just because women should be burdened wih these big boobs doesnt mean that the fashion industry shouldnt make us cute bras, sure it uses more material but hey it makes them look better. I remember how scared i used to get (big breasts run in my family) My mum...

    Cotton Or Cotton Lined Bras In Large Cupsizes

    Although I love the summer I hate its when its hot and humid as my boobs get all itchy & irritated in the heat. In these circumstances (and going braless is not an option for me) the best solution is to get a cotton or cotton lined bra, however they are not that common on the...

    Not Just A Woman's Problem

    Men who wear bras have a similar problem. I cannot wear a Fredericks of Hollywood bra because they don't have one with my band size. I bought a 42C and the band was still too small for me. They said they will be getting 44s in the future, but not for awhile. In men's clothing I...

    I Hate My Boobs

    My cup size ranges from 34D-DD or 36D-DD. It depends on the type of bra and how it is made. But to make it simple lets say I am a 34 D. My boobs are not as big as some women's that for sure. But boobs on a body like mine look abnormally huge. I am petite and skinny. I don't...

    Surprise! I can too! OK,

    what constitutes a nice bra? Does it have to have a very sexy look with sheer embroidered cups? I 'm a 48C due to gynecomastia. As a man, I want fit and support. I usually wear back-smoother bras from Catherine"s or Goddess soft cup bras, like the Keira. These are comfy and...

    Since I cannot find nice looking bras,

    I go braless and topless most of the time. My bras cost between $100-150 each. I need money for other things than a bra.

    Valentine Things

    I was wondering if Valentines day was better or worse than any other day for those blessed with the breast. A few have said "Hugging" can be awkward. Large breasts get in the way. Others note that outfits, not just bra's are not sold. Yes they can be made but are not sold...

    Why Is That?

    If you are a 12 year old who wears 30AAA you can find the sexiest bras but if you are a grown woman you are restricted to something your granny would have found conservative.

    Aargh! It's so difficult trying to explain to people just how frustrating this problem is! Whenever I try I just end up ranting and shouting because it makes me so irate. I can never, ever find bras that fit me. On the off chance a bra does fit me (of course, by 'fit' I mean that...

    I am a larger woman (5'11 - 265lbs) but I have no chest. I measured myself the other day and determined that I am a 42A. Heaven forbid you are a big woman with nothing up top! I cannot find that size anywhere, even at the plus size stores. The smallest cup size for a 42 I have...

    Saturday I went bra shopping.

    Because I am very big up top I need a very supportive bra. I bought the Elilia 1305 bra. In fact the foundations store only had two colors in the size I wanted. I bought both.

    when the fine print on your bra says, "For Industrial Use Only" . . . .

    It's difficult to find C-cup

    and higher where I'm from. So when I find one that fits, feels very comfortable, had ample padding and doesn't have an underwire, I buy at least seven of them.
