LADIES; bras help- Women's Issues

I have a friend who is paying $175. for 2 bras. She is 36F, that is correct 36-F and she can't find a bras that fits her without costing her an arm and a leg. For larger women you start with 38 but with 36 and under larger cup sizes are hard to find. It doesn't fit well in the rib cage. Does anyone

    Fashion Bug, Lane Bryant (or their www.womanwithin.com site) Roaman's

    and there are a few other sites online. Look up Plus Size bras. That's

    how I have to order mine also. Also, in case she doesn't realize it, an

    F cup is comparable to a DDD cup most times. I know that those places I

    listed carry DDD cups.

    I have heard that if you go up a size like to 38 you can go down a size in the cup. I don't know if that is true but she can try one on and see. Christina

    Ok, I wasn’t sure if they still did,
    but I went to their website and Fredrick’s of Hollywood
    does, and in nice designs. If you look under bras, in the full figure
    section, they go from 32D to 42F. And they’re $30 a piece! Not
    bad for specialty sizes. Maybe that will help!

    And no I won’t tell you why I know
    so much about them! Wink wink!! <font size="2" color="navy" face="Wingdings">10.0pt;font-family:Wingdings;color:navy;">J

    You may want to check out barenecessities.com. Looking at their

    website, they do have bras in your friend's size and they start about

    $30.



    Hope that helps!

    Your friend might try Catherine's or other shops for large women.

    They will fit you there, and may special order. Goddess is a

    wonderful brand of bras in larger sizes. She should be able to find

    something in the $35.oo - $40.oo range.



    Has your friend considered breast reduction surgery? If your

    friend's breasts are large, she will have pain in back/neck/shoulders

    and deep ruts in her shoulders from the straps. Because of this the

    surgery is considered "functional", not cosmetic, and is covered

    under many insurance plans. The surgery is easier than it was 10

    years or so ago, so recovery time is faster.

    Could she buy a larger size and "hem" the band of the bra so it&#39;s not so big? She wouldn&#39;t have to change the clasps- she can just fold it over and sew it up on both sides so it&#39;s not so long...

    That's crazy! I work at a store that also custom fits for surgical and

    support needs and she should be able to get 2 bras for about $100-120.

    Have her check the yellow pages to see if there is a surgical/post

    mast. bra shop available nearby. If that is where she's getting them

    now, she should check around. They can be purchased for less than what

    she is paying. I also believe that JCP handles some of the same bras

    but that they have to be special ordered.

    I know that's true at smaller sizes. I can wear a 36D or a 38C both.

    They fit exactly the same to me.

    Wow! And I thought mine were expensive. I am a 38H, and I have ordered from www.decentexposures.com for quite awhile now. Be forewarned though, they are not "traditional" bras, more of a really supportive sports bra. They will make them in any size and if you find they need a bit of tweaking, you can send them back and they will adjust them for you. They run from about $40-$60 each, which is pricey, but far cheaper than what your friend is paying now. Even though I can occasionally find my size at Lane Bryant or whatever, they are still like $38 or something for a "traditional" bra.



    I have a friend who is paying $175. for 2 bras. She is 36F, that is correct 36-F and she can't find a bras that fits her without costing her an arm and a leg.

    Omgosh, it is so wonderful to hear about someone else having these

    problems!! I wear a 32H and it's AWFUL! I am soooo jealous of the

    gals that can go to a department store and get a really CUTE bra for

    under $20. On ebay you can expect to pay arround $50 .... the

    downside being that you cant try on the different styles to see how

    they support and returns to an ebay seller are usually a hassle.



    There's also a store at the mall... I think it was Belks... that

    sells some of the odder sizes... their downside is that the bras are

    not made well enough to withstand. They can be bought for around $30+

    dollars, but they don't last very long...esspecially the

    underwires ... they poke through in no time.



    As another poster said, folding in the sides and sewing them is an

    alternative. Not perfect, but you can get the larger around ones way

    cheaper. Just make sure you do a really good job with the sewing so

    there's no embarrasing accident while out and about!



    And in response to the alternating cup and band sizes, that doesn't

    work when your dealing with a size that needs REALLY heavy duty

    support. The band size is really important because you need that to

    give most of the support, otherwise you end up with really deep welts

    and a loss of feeling in your shoulders (know from a LOT of

    experience with that).



    <sigh> bigger is NOT always better.
