I just got a strapless bra from The Little Bra Company (yes, that's its name). It is the first strapless bra I've ever had that stays up without being ridiculously uncomfortable. I've come to the conclusion that, even though I have a small chest, I need to spend more on bras and actually buy ones sized for petites (the cups are closer together).



my mother sent me an e-mail about this company the other day. i was skeptical because they just kept hyping how it would give you magical cleavage or whatever, so it is good to hear a positive review. i wear a 30B (i think) and the straps on bras are always too long, and the cups to tall and far apart from each other.

I also have this Wacoal Petite bra that fits really well: http://www.barenecessities.com/Wacoal-P ... earch,.htm (it looks like they're out of some of the sizes on that site now, though).

I like bralettes, but that might not work if you're nipple-conscious. Recently, I'm a fan of Hanky Panky.

Does a bralette have any lining or padding?

Hmm, I may look into that. I'm not sure how I would feel about that.

Where can I buy a bra that won't get a bunch of cat hair all of it and make me itchy?

My boobs won't stop growing either, I swear. I was a 32E in the fall, and I went on Friday because the girls were unhappy and now I'm a 32/34 (depending on the manufacturer) G. what the fizzle?

Bare Necessities is having I think the last day of Friends & Family which is 25% off, I ordered this weekend. Bought one at the bra shop (they are so awesome) and then got the other ones online. I also like Her room but you can't do returns on sale items, which um, sucks.

I hate bra shopping about as much as I hate jeans shopping. I always try a whole bunch of stuff on and come out empty handed.

I heard Wacoal is awesome. I was measured as a 34D, which I detest only because normally I can't find cute bras, but I heard that Wacoal has some cute thin-strapped and attractive ones.

I have some nice wireless cotton ones from Victoria's Secret that I like. I also found some cute cheap ones at Target, too! So if you don't want to spend a lot, Target has a decent selection of really comfortable ones.

Heh, there's only one in my size, but it's 18 bucks, so I'll go ahead and order it!

I get most of my bras at Nordstroms or Saks. I like Chantalle. They last forever (They should! They cost $70+ ish!) and they fit me the best.

Bra twins. I have one Chantelle bra (also 36D) and it is, by far, the nicest bra I've ever owned. It fits perfectly and it's beautiful. Wish they weren't so expensive so I could easily replace mine when it dies.

I think chantelles are the best. They last along time, too, if you are careful to only hand wash.

Weird question - does anyone have recommendations for SUPPORTIVE sports bras? When I go running, I wear an older/ickier underwire bra and a sports bra over it, because most sports bras don't seem to support my ladies that well. But the underwire ends up cutting into my skin after a while (so much so yesterday that I started bleeding, ew).

What size are you may? I'm a 32G and like Freya Active and Enell. You are going to probably have to pay more than you want, but bleeding is NOT cool!

That sucks. For my everyday bras I like Fantasie T-Shirt bras, and I barely feel like I'm wearing one. Did you go get fitted? That is key honestly.

I haven't been fitted recently (this thread is making me think I should..) but I am a weird size, 38B (my sherpa-like ribcage will not be stopped!).

CW-X Xtra Support Sports Bra. For reals. I had too many terrible sports bras that left me flying all over the place and then I decided to fork over a decent amount of money instead of settling on a $20 piece of double-layered fabric.

Definitely go to a sports store of some kind to try it on because it IS crazy supportive - you don't want to get to the point where you can't breathe, though.

This is what it looks like:

Recommendations for bras not made in China? I prefer no sweat shop at all, but specifically trying to avoid china. I know there's no guarantee the maker won't change factory locations, but looking for a starting point. Also, not that one that has the horrible sexist heroin model ads, I need a real bra not a camisole.

ETA: american apparel, I couldn't think of the name. anyway, not them.
