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).
bigger is not always better.
