Thumbs up Best. Bra. Ever.

Victoria's Secret "Gorgeous" line.

Forget implants, this bra is freaking amazing. Hello cleavage! I know some of you don't need help in this department but for those that do, save some $$. I will never go cheap on bra's again.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE VS "Incredible". SO comfy - it has self adjusting straps and you can get it in either push up or demi.

Lol! Awesome that you found a bra you like!

I fit into Victoria's Secret for about five minutes during my weight loss. They have some nice bras but I couldn't wear them before and I can't wear them now. Ah well.

I love VS bras... That's all I'll wear. Although, I'm a 38DD right now, so my selection isnt as cute as it could be. LOL.

My sister swears by one of VS's line of bras. I forget which, the incredible maybe?

I myself am unable to wear VS bras yet, they rarely carry a band of 38, and I would not want a bra to up my cleavage. I have a B cup anyway, but if I do have cleavage, it makes me uncomfortable.

I never have a problem finding 38's at VS. Thats what I wear.....and I'm willing to bet that your sis is talking about Incredible, they are awesome!

They're cup sizes are WAY too limited, unfortunately, and thus I've never even bothered to try their stuff (any of it) out of protest.

That said, I'm glad you found a bra you love! I feel that way about Empreinte and Prima Donna - fabulous bras make me look and feel my very best.

currently i'm in a 44DD or DDD (depending on the bra) and VS doesn't make anything that big

though, as soon as i can fit into their stuff, i'm going on a spree

I wish their bra sizes weren't so limited . They used to be too small for me and now they're too big! I'm not a tiny person either, so I don't get it!

I guess I never realized there was limited sizes until now you guys mentioned it. I'm just your run-of-the-mill 36C so I never noticed. That does stink but if I was large breasted I wouldn't want a push-up. Yikes.

Actually push-up bras are AMAZING for large breasted women. I really need supportive bras because if my breasts are too low I have MAJOR back pain. My favorite brand is Ewa Michalak, which is almost exclusively push-up/padded bras (with a few sheer cups thrown in there).

I think I've asked you this before but I have to check. Are you SURE you're a 36C? At your height and weight that would be extremely rare (I know because I'm doing an underbust survey at the moment and have seen the stats for women around your height/weight). Remember that your underbust=band size (DON'T ADD INCHES): here's a great video about it (and she has other pictures on her blog with her in a correctly fitting bra, the difference is huge). I mean, I know it's possible but just not that common so it's always good to check.

As for Victoria Secrets, well, not a fan. They've been extremely rude to me in the past (when I tried to get fitted there), they don't carry anything remotely close to my size (28HH) and the sizing advice on their website is horrendous! However, it's always great when someone can find a well-fitting bra!

Yes!!! Ever since I tried Incredible it is all I wear! Unfortunately they are kind of expensive, but nothing is more comfortable, I swear!

I used to buy only VS until I discovered Lane Bryant.
I now pay half the price there for bras that last 5x better than VS.
Not to mention the sizing is pretty accurate. Seems like VS wanted me smaller, when I obviously wasn't. :|
I do still own a push up bra from VS that seems to only surface for my boyfriend's excitement. Lol

I have the Miraculous, I think it's called. Thing makes me look two cups sizes bigger. It's fantastic. Of course, my husband likes to squeeze my boobs when he walks by and then tell me I'm made of foam
