I have to follow through on the awesomeness shown here: http://sameatschildren.tumblr.com/post/ ... -measuring

If I measured correctly I am a 28C. I pretty much knew a 32 band size was too big, but now if I want a 28C I have to order $60 bras online. Terrible news, I want to keep buying cheap bras!

Per the conversation in the PSPTY... thread, here's my favorite bra (Simone Perele Andora) that I keep reordering through Amazon. I initially found it when I was fitted at nordstroms and they said its one of their most popular items.

This so far is my favourite

http://www.brastop.com/fantasie-rebecca ... -bra-black

It's an exceedingly comfortable bra, and it gives nice lift, and a rounded - not conical shape. However, it is still a molded bra, and molded bras are hot, and don't give the firm support I could use.

I'd really like to find a seamless, unlined bra that gives the shape I want. Also the Rebecca Nouveau and the regular Rebecca are both great. but I have a lot of breast tissue under my arms it doesn't have the side support to push the part of my breast completely out from under my arms. I'd like my breasts to not look wider than the rest of my torso. And I hate the sides of my boobs rubbing the underside of my arms.

So what I need is a good side support bra, I'd even accept another molded one ...but I'm a large GG(UK sizing) that doesn't give me that pointed look. Freya doesn't run large enough, it doesn't seem that Curvy Kate does either....*sigh

Just venting ...bra shopping sucks asparagus.

The Wacoal underwire sports bra is great, and I highly recommend that as an everyday bra, but I've um, outgrown their sizes as well.

ETA This is the Wacoal I mentioned. It's not pretty and you won't be able to wear anything too revealing over it. But it does get the girls up there, and facing front and centre witout seams or padding. http://www.amazon.com/Wacoal-Womens-Spo ... 9%3AWacoal

my favorite seamless unlined bra was the playtex 18 hour because it was conical. they don't make a size smaller than 34d and my teets have shrunk.

Triumph makes pointy wireless bras for smaller boobs http://us.triumph.com/petites-molded-so ... 2_cl_14592 .

ETA or I think this would give a similar shape to the Playtex 18 hour http://us.triumph.com/delicate-doreen/d/2556_cl_15270

However, if you're band size is smaller than a 34, that could prove more difficult to find.

I've been on the hunt for a perfect seamless, "normal"-shaped, neutral bra that comes in larger sizes (UK size G here), and I seem to have found the jackpot - Prima Donna Seamless Satin bra. I got one at a specialty lingerie shop in February, and it's still the one I grab most often. It's not super pretty on its own, but it's exactly what I need for everyday wear - especially under t-shirts.

I don't know about the side support aspect, since that's not one of my big concerns, but it doesn't seem... unsupportive. And I know it's quite pricey, but totally worth it.

Ohh - I just found this tread. Help! I'm very small chested, usually a 34-36 A (sometimes even AA) and for most of my life I've worn just thin mesh bras or soft, slightly padded bras, I never needed much support on the side or front. Fast forward to now, where I have been breastfeeding for 9 months - my rib cage and my breasts are bigger but the biggest change is my side boobs! Like Jean mentioned, I too have breast tissue under my arms and it needs to go forward! I'm almost done nursing, so I'm hoping some of it goes away...but I need to start wearing non-nursing bras and none of my old ones come even close to fitting me. I guess I should just go to Nordstroms or something? What do I need to look for that indicates more side support? A larger side panel?
Thanks for any suggestions!
