Hehe. Really I mean bras. Do you have a favorite brand/type/style, etc. which is all you will buy?

Pretty much, unless I need strapless or really low cut.

I don't really have a favorite. I hate shopping for bras (and jeans.)

nope. I just try to find something that actually fits without air conditioning. And without wires because it seems the underwire ones are more likely to slide over the speed bumps.

I recently found some at WM by Fruit of the Loom. Of course you don't get pretty colors, just standard. But I haven't been able to find the beige one in my size.

I'm a fried egg girl, as you all know! 32B. My latest bras are by Calvin Klein and Lovable (the v is a heart), and they are actually a C cup with a booster inside. They are both under-wired, but the wires don't dig in the sides with a C cup. And they don't ride up when I raise my arms. For the first time I have under-wired bras that I can wear for 14 hours before I get so uncomfortable that they have to come off. That's epic for me.

And it's epic that I can tell people I'm a 32C!!

My every-day bras are Triumph's finest padded non-wired. They do nothing for my shape, but they stop the guys from pointing out that it's a cold day.

LOL I hate bra shopping so I tend to stick to the few that I've found to be comfortable, under wire all the way as I need the support, just ones from Target, my washing machine wrecks bra's , I really should be hand washing them.

Bite me, Rosey, on the 'fried egg'. 32 - 34 A (if I'm lucky).

Tam! I'm really, really not a C. My Triumph comfies are a 32A. And I don't need to tell you how difficult it is to find pretty, comfy bras in that size that aren't designed for teens.

I know, but you said a B. I'm lucky when I find A's that fit. :roll: Found some for now - so I've got 6 new ones. I may still try to get a couple more. That should give me a few years or so before I'm back at square 1.
I've tried the girls' section. The problem is, the straps are made too short.

I was being optimistic and rounding up my average measurements!

The straps are usually too long for me. I'm short-waisted.

Can you get Triumph in the States?

Victoria Secret are my favorites. When I went there and was measured I was wearing completely the wrong size and I had been measured at other places.

Listen, I don't want to HEAR how hard it is to find 32A's -- at least they MAKE them, so you have a few choices!!! DD needs 32DD's -- NO SUCH THING.

Actually, she would probably like 30DD if they made THAT.

My SIL wears 32DD. I'll find out where she gets them Beth Ann.

Kim, my point is that I wear what fits, never mind what it says on the label. Labelling has gone to the dogs in my opinion - it's the same with all clothes these days. You have to try things on. I have clothes labelled S, M and L, 8, 10, 12 and they all fit.

I tried on t-shirts a few weeks ago and the 10 was bigger than the 12. I looked closer and found that they had 2 of each size, one made in Sri Lanka and one in Cambodia. The Sri Lankan ones were much bigger and had a more scooped neck. After 40 minutes of comparisons, and traipsing from the rack on one side of the shop to the fitting rooms on the other, I bought a Sri Lankan 10.

I have found that with clothes a lot (I usually compare them) and even shoes. I'd not thought about it with bras.

They're pretty Tam. And I have to say, they may be pricey (they aren't here, or they weren't when I got mine) but they last for years. I bought 4 white and one black in the padded, non-wired Amourette style and I've had them for at least 10 years. I used to keep one white one for medical appointments only so that it stayed nice, and rotated the others.

I just checked the UK Triumph site and the more unusual sizes are more expensive.

But the 32/4As are cheaper, and they're having a sale right now. Have a look here Tam. If you see anything you like, and it's cheaper in the UK than in the US, let me know and I can order it and send it to you. You too Beth Ann.

Thanks for offering Rosey. Still pricey - and the exchange rate is not in our favor either.
I'm good now. I've got 6 new ones that fit and cost me $5 and $8.

Here's the one I got on clearance in the store - I assume the older style. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fruit-of-the-Loom- Jacqua...

And the regular price ones. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fruit-of-the-Loom- Lightl...

You can buy them at Nordstrom's- along with with other odd sizes. This is my FAVORITE place to go to get sized. I don't buy all my bras there but it is the only place that has been accurate and doesn't "Lie" about what size bra to wear. I used to be a 34H-do you know how hard it is to find that size? Nordstrom's was able to accommodate me and NO ONE could tell I was that big because I wore good bras!! And no, they are NOT cheap. However, I don't think good bras are cheap. I am now a 34C and though it is easier to find my size, I still like the expensive bras-Walcoal is my favorite brand-the best.

VS for me. They are more pricey, but I like the fit and they don't hurt like some of the cheaper ones do. Also, I like the ones that give me an extra boost.

Funny side note: I tease DH that when they have me under for surgery I'm going to have the surgeon add boobs. He told me if I wanted them that was fine with him. He's so supportive (and perhaps a bit selfish)
