Default where to buy weird bra sizes

I know we've had threads about bra sizes here before, but I had a question I was hoping someone on here might be able to answer. Where, other than online, can you buy weird bra sizes?

Some of you might remember a while ago I was excited about fitting a 36D, since it meant I could buy "normal" bras. Well, my 36D has not been fitting so well, and since I have lost a lot of fat off my back I thought it was time to stop fooling myself and actually measure and see what size I really am. I recently tried on a 34DD to see if it would be better, but it still felt a little off.

Well, as best as I can tell, I am either a 32DDD or a 30E. I don't even know where to buy such a ridiculous size. I don't want to order online because I really have to try it on before I can buy, but I don't know what else to do. Should I just keep wearing 36D even though I can really tell the band is too big? Should I buy 34DD and hope that it's good enough?

I am so upset about this. I had thought that finally my troubles with bras because of my enormous chest were over, but there is no end in sight. Anyway, I guess I just wanted to vent, and to see if anyone had suggestions on where to buy this stuff.

I have just one thing to say to people who want breast implants to a DD or above . . . DON'T!! I have huge breasts naturally, and I hate them! I don't understand why anyone would voluntarily do this to themselves.

I have a bra problem also in that I'm big around since I weigh so much but still have small boobs. Do you know how hard it is to find a 44 B that does NOT look like my grandmother's bra?! Can't wait to shed more pounds and become a more normal size (many stores carry up to a 38 B). Till then...

I would have suggested Lane Bryant also except for your number being so small--I don't think they would carry a 32 or 30 in such large cup sizes. I would just order a few online and return the ones that don't fit. That way, once you find a good one, you can just order from the same company all the time so their sizing will be consistent. I think it's worth the shipping costs to find a perfect fit. Good luck!

I have that problem as well. I like going to Sears for my bras. I have found them to fit better and last longer. And they are not all that costly! I have not found another store yet to have my size unless I paid tons of money.

Ahhh, the grass really is always greener on the other side isn't it? I'm accepting boob donations as well although I have to admit I don't envy you your DD's (is a nice perky pair of C's really asking too much?).

Haha, I would gladly donate some of my boobs. Really I think everyone wants to be a C! That woudl be my ideal size, 34C. What's most annoying about the DD's (other than sleazy men staring) is that I always accidentally run into walls with them, like I turn a corner but forget they're in the way and hit them on the doorjamb!

I ended up finding an awesome bra at a local specialty lingerie shop. I highly recommend British bras, the fit is lower and tighter on the back, and the part in between your breasts lies flush against your sternum. It's really amazing. I ended up getting a British size 32FF!!

paperclippy,

Lol.. your cracking me up lol. BUT IT IS ALL SO TRUE!!

~~~~~~~~

One time I was cooking and burned them with boiling water when I was draining my pasta into the sink!! I am short so they are always in the way lol.

I will never understand people like Pam Anderson!!!! Why? It is not easy to sleep, by clothes, walk, or do much of anything lol.

They could make a great cup holder though!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA just kidding lol.

I was going to suggest Brittish online stores. I know a woman that goes to London just for bra shopping about every two years!

I went from a 34B to a 38DD with pregnancy and nursing. I used to envy the large chested until I became one! Plus, I can't wear underwire while nursing because it clogs the ducts and is very painful. So being well endowed with no support is not a good combination! It will be interesting to see what size they become when I am done breastfeeding. Please be a C! Though I'm sure far from perky!

I'm moving to London!!!!! Good fitting bras for big chests (for lack of better words lol) and the women there supposably don't get fat!!!! Here I come!!!! LMAO! Just kidding of course lol.

I can't wear underwire either. It hurts and is very uncomfortable! I have never been able to wear them. Nothing is perfect for bigger chests I don't think.

http://www.afraidtoask.com/breast/brasizeform1.html <-- plug your measurments in here and it will give you an 'accurate' bra size.

According to it, though, i'm a 36H, so i'm hoping its wrong!

I've heard that figleaves.com is fantastic for hard-to-size boobage. The other thing you might want to try (and it sounds silly, but it works) shops that cater to strippers (club/fetish-wear/lingerie shops). Girls in the industry tend to get their implants up to that size, so there's lots of (actually sexy! not ugly granny-types) bras and such for large sizes. For sensible bras, that actually support, Figleaves is likely your best bet.

This reminds me, I really should go bra-shopping myself.. yay for Lane Bryant and Avenue, they both sell pretty bras in my size (36 DD).

Very often, walking to or from work, I get guys stopping and asking me for rides. As my neighbor says, I don't need to stick out my thumb to hitchhike, my chest does it for me! (And no, I don't take a ride...) And they DO always get in the way.. people are always hitting them, it doesn't even phase me anymore.. and if I am leaning over the grill at work I'm always afraid I'll burn them! Ouch...

A friend and I were going to start a rent-a-boob service.. renting out my boobs to smaller-chested women! Make money.. plus give my back some relief! Haha anyone want to join me on this enterprise?
