    Whats really finny about this is when we were shopping for a strapless corset for my wedding dress i went to get fitted at "dawns bra-tique" but my husband only ever heard me say it and assumed it was "don's bra-tique" and was really wondering why i was going to let Don grab my boobies :rofl1:.

    I buy bras whenever I can get them to fit me, im a 40J...so i buy them few and far between.

    Yeah, don't doubt yourself too quickly. I'm gonna share a photo (you asked, Eddie, LOL). It's NSFW, but it's just me in bras, lol.

    I thought I was a 40DDD. I gave myself more room in the band just to fit the boobs in the bra. Perhaps an extreme example, but that was the highest bra I could buy cheap in department stores.

    I've been sharing this photo around despite it being a bit revealing, because not a lot of people "get" the fact that a bra can actually fit perfectly if you're fitted correctly. That 36H bra in the pic is pretty ugly (it was my first; all my brastop bras are super cute) but it fits like a dream.

    US bra sizes are completely ludicrous. Every bra manufacturer sizes differently using different criteria and different names for the same sizes. I gave up. LOL. The UK sizing system makes a hundred times more sense, and still isn't far off from the US sizes so it's not confusing.

    I want that kind of a fit! I think I need a cup size bigger than the DDDs because the middle part of the bra doesn't fit next to my sternum It's close but just not quite.

    I didn't get a chance to buy measuring tape (I can't find mine) but I hope to tomorrow!

    I have nothing constructive to add, but wow there are a lot of large chested women on chaz! Sadly, my own girls are but a humble B cup, but at least I don't need to leash my dogs up for daily use. Bras? Those are for visiting family and going out to dinner. I'm classy, I know :p

    Allie, I can visibly see where your first bra doesn't fit right but my underwire seems to fit snuggly all around. I sometimes get quad boob but with the right cut I don't lol.

    BUT I am currently wearing a 38 and need to go down to a 36 so I probably need up a cupsize at least but i am measuring like 4 inches above my current cup size lol. I need to find where i can try a J. I really don't want to buy one until i am convinced lol.

    Now my bra I use for exercise (not a sports bra but a minimizer regular bra) seems to fit great.

    I'm envious of all you big-boobed babes. I'm cursed with tiny tits and a massive she-hulk ribcage. I'm a 40B. When my weight loss is done I'll probably be a 40A. How the hell does that happen? :p

    Bra shopping is difficult for me, as well... It's hard to find a cute pushup bra in a B cup that doesn't cut off at a 34-36. I have resorted to wearing a 38 but I have to be careful with my shirt choices, since I get back rolls when I wear them!

    oh man i feel everyones pain. im a 36 DDD, but i have such tiny shoulders that i absolutely have to get the racerback style, and have you EVER tried to find a bra bigger than a C cup in front hook/racerback? its like the loch ness monster

    i buy mine on ebay, if its a brand im unsure of i get the cheapest ones in 2 or 3 different sizes (36 and 38, DD and DDD), and then whatever one fits when they arrive, i go back and order 5 more and wear them until they fall apart

    i second lane bryant, have you also tried Fashion Bug/Avenue/Torrid?

    As much as I love torrid, I was displeased with their bra quality in comparison to LB.
