S/C/G: Starting Weight:250/140

Default The right bra

Ok I have LARGE breasts. I am trying to find a comfortable bra (although my philosophy is that some man invented the bra to punish his wife!). Any suggestions on where to buy them and what types are best for large breasts? Thanks.

Nordstrom is the BEST for hard to find sizes.

I second Nordstrom. I found really cute bras that fit really well.

I actually discovered I was wearing the wrong bra size after watching this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8Jk55ep4XUQ
She shows how to correctly measure and choose your size. My bras actually fit how their supposed up now lol
And I can't remember if someone on this forum posted this video, or if I found it somewhere else.

I would not go to a department store for a bra. You really have to go to a specialty store. Often these stores look like they belong I a different era, they sell granny panties and a formidable woman named Helga does a proper fitting on you. Once you get fitted you can continue to buy those bras online or in department stores (if they carry your size which many Dont.)

Don't try to fit yourself. You'll be shocked at how wrong your self assessment is. And don't go to VS, their bras are not made for big girls.

All in all I've been happy with my Wacoals. They're not beautiful but they do the job for my 38G-Fs.

I agree with going to Nordstrom. I used to be a lingerie manager there, and their fit specialists actually go thru training to be fit certified. Nordstrom carries a great selection of Wacoal bras. I believe in Wacoal so much, that when I left Nordstrom, I went to work for Wacoal America! I have since left the company, but will never wear another brand.(and I've tried them all!)
