View Full Version : Best Support Bra?

I figured this was as good a place as any to ask this question.
I have large breasts and I am also a large woman. I am always looking for a bra that supports me without making them look like cone-boobs. So if you have any suggestions, please share them here. I average a 42dd. 3 babies later have made them hit the floor. Another question is,,,Did the ladies who lost a lot of weight also lose the elasticity in their breasts? Meaning, did they hit the floor. I guess I'm worried that they will be flat as pancakes before I'm through.
Lovely questions but real ones. Thanks in advance. I'm curious to know what to expect as the weight comes off now after the 3rd baby.

I so hear you about cone boobs.

Goddess has lots of nice bras, not *too* expensive ($30s usually), nice shapes, huge size range. I like model #3910.$productpage$&extend=1,1,1,1&bgcolor=221,221,221

Glamorise is another brand you might check.

In general, underwires and molded cups have a "softer" shape than non-underwires with the T-shaped seams across the nipple and down the middle of the breast.

I find that seamed cup underwire bras work the best for me. Some of the softer cup bras are all right but I pop right out of the molded foam ones! I think those only work if you're already shaped like that, which is not true for someone with a natural DD cup who has lost some weight.

I found a couple of Lunaire bras on clearance and I love them, but they are a bit pricey otherwise. Mostly I buy anything that shows up in my size at TJ Maxx. You'll probably have better luck there than I do because I wear a 34 band and most bra makers assume "full figured" means full ribcage instead of just having massive breasts.

Sadly, I think the sagging is inevitable. I'm young and have no kids, but going up and down in size has killed any chance I may have had at perkiness. Luckily a good bra goes a long way towards fixing that.
