I am bumping this thread back up. For you ladies who also liked the Lane Bryant Cotton Boost Plunge bra, I've found 2 bras that are similar:
1) Freya Deco Nude Moulded Half Cup Bra http://www.freyalingerie.com/lingeri...px?colour=nude
It's kind of scratchy in the beginning because the straps are textured but gets softer. The texture is actually a good thing because there is no slippage after you adjust the straps. That was one of my big complaints in the LB bra--the straps never stayed adjusted. It seems to run pretty true to size & runs from 28D-38F (UK sizing). Luckily, I've lost more weight since last time I posted & can now fit into a 34F instead of 34H. It's a demi cup, so not full coverage (good for my deflated tops). The center gore does come up quite a bit more than the LB Cotton Boost Plunge. It gives great support & it is a padded, push-up like the LB bra. The push up is not as extreme as the Cotton Boost, but the girls are definitely lifted.
2) Parisa Fe Body Veil Push-Up Bra PT1025 http://www.herroom.com/parisa-fe-pt1...h-up-bra.shtml
This is my new go-to bra. I just got it today & so far I LOVE it. It is also a padded, push-up bra. Still not as extreme as the Cotton Boost, but has great lift which is what I'm after. From searching around, it looks like it comes in sizes 32D-44G (US sizes). In this one, I needed a 34G. It is more of a plunge type bra--the center gore is very short like the Cotton Boost, so you could wear it with very low cut shirts if you want & have good cleavage. The cups are not full coverage, which is what works best for my shape. One of the best things, is that this bra is cheap! Only $38!
I hate spending $80 on a bra. It also comes in the same style as non push-up model #PT1042, so make sure you're getting the one you want if you order.
I have not "popped out" of either of these bras even with vigorous exercise--lots of bending over & jumping (not at the same time
). They are not sports bras by any means, but you don't have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions.
