Default bra help...sorry to the fellas

I can NOT find my size. Am I shaped that oddly? I mean, even online!

I need a 34 DDD. Do they not make those? I tried Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, JcPenny, Just My Size (which isn't). Any suggestions? This is frustrating and I need a new one. My 38 inch band isn't cutting it anymore! 36 inch fits on the last possible hook, but considering I'm losing weight, I thought 34 on the first hook was probably the better way to go.

Victorias Secret has 34DDD bras. Choose shop by size on the left side of the bras page.

I have found that a lot of places concider DDD an F. I just ordered several from www.jms.com

I highly recommend the Glamorise brand, have worn them for years. They come in a wide range of styles and sizes. They go all the way up to J cup size.

By the way Glamorise are on sale at jms (Just My Size), buy 2 get one free.

Hope this helps!

I'm a 34G and always have good luck at nordstroms. Bigger sizes tend to be expensive wherever you can manage to find them, but the salesladies at nordstroms are always really helpful and do a great fitting. I can always walk away with at least a couple of well-fitting bras.

Nope, still no luck. They all look promising until I go to check out. None of the above sites actually have a 34 DDD/F/E...whatever they choose to call it. I love it when I put in all my information and they pull up 50 bras for me and they say "no longer available" or whatever.

I did find one, but the colors are black or red and I need a practical bra I can wear under light colors.

I agree with moving up to an F. You may want to call around to some local specialty shops in your area and see if they can special order for you. Otherwise, I really like: http://www.barenecessities.com/searc...ch=34%20F&ft=1

True, true. I wish I had something to clever to say...but I don't.

You're a good sport, Matt.

FINALLY! And on the first try too.

I am not a shopper and bras aren't a fun purchase...well, not practical bras anyway. So thank you, thank you!

I have this problem too. I think the smallest band size at lane Bryant is a 34 and they only go to an H. Victorias secret is not really designed with the support in mind needed in larger cup sizes. Try figleaves.com. Goddess is one brand I've liked. They sometimes have non-boring colors too.

Try looking up "foundation garments" in the yellow pages. You may have a local shop that specializes in non-mainstream sizes that could measure you. I'm going on a short road trip to get fitted next month. I figure I'm not guessing too well what will and won't fit me in a clothing store anymore so I may be off when it comes to the girls too.

Edited to add: Why must manufactures make larger cup sizes in boring beige or black if you are lucky? Do only B cups deserve cute fabric?
