I wear a 34FF- 34GG size bra. I am 5'1" so I am short and curvy. I would love to add more lingerie to my wishlist in particluar corsets, bustier, garters, stockings and bras but it is so hard finding tops that fit me. As far as stockings go my thigs make up for the length so that is ok. I just can't find bras and when I do they cost a fortune and usually aren't sexy.
For the past few yrs I have been buying stuff from figleaves.com but that is only when they have a clearance or mega sale. I have been in school and am going to grad school this spring and I really can't afford to pay $80 for a bra with support that is beige or white.
Where can I find some cute lingerie that fits,is quality, will not give me 4 boobs and I can get 3-4 of for under $100? I love a lot of the lingerie here at EF. They are so cute and the right price but as far as bras go I am sure they won't fit and I hate buying bras online only to send them back. So where do you buy your bras. What brands are your favorites? Where can I find one to fit me?

You have my sympathy/admiration. LOL! I am a 36D and sometimes I have a hard time finding what I want. I just want a thin layer of satin or lace, underwire, no padding and none of those molded cups, and I want it to be sexy. No bras that my granny would have wanted. The best bras seem to be made for A-C cup women, and if I find one that's not too bad, the cost is very high.

Thanks, I just ordered some form figleaves for about $20 each I was so excited but I had to send them back. I am sad and pissed. I refuse to walk around with 4 breast and why why do they add padding to something that is over a CC cup.
"I just want a thin layer of satin or lace, underwire, no padding and none of those molded cups, and I want it to be sexy."Exactly!

I think there is a plot against busty women. Seriously, I think jealous bra manufactures have a meeting and say things like "Oh they have big ones, why give them something pretty to put them in? Lets give them something ugly and charge them a fortune." Ha Ha HA Revenge.

For that matter, why would a D cup need padding? Seriously, I don't need to appear to wear a DD--I'm happy with what I have. Also, I don't want the top of the cup to come half way up to my throat!!!

What's up with all the padding these days anyway and those molded cups? It seems I'm finding more and more of them. Maybe that's what people are buying and so that's whats being made.

I know I hate it when they are super high. I don't know who it testing these bras but I really need to get a job doing that cause this is getting ridiculous. As a matter of fact when my favorite bra died last week I had a dream I had my own company of quality affordable sexy bras.

I am just so over it but I can't because I MUST WEAR A BRA. And I would love a shelf bra cami with thick straps. Can I get one of those please? The best shelf bra camis I have found are at New York & Company but those strings they call straps are horrible.

I don't get it either!
I'm a 36 DD, and finding a bra without padding/molding or even a bra in my size is ridiculous!!

I'm a 36C and I get my bras at La senza (is that victoria secret in the states?). I have a co-worker who has 34 DD breasts I think...I'll check with her where she gets her bras. I know she got a really funky pair at the bay. She loves to shop at La vie en rose. You know I don't even know if these stores are in the states so never mind...:S

Title 9 makes the best no bounce sports bras in larger sizes and comfy bras for women who hate underwires.

I'm only a 34D, but it still takes effort for me to find a good fitting bra.

My friend loves a place called Brasserie Dearie, or something of that sort, and she's a...38DD, I believe? She says the bras are expensive, but really comfortable, and I've seen some of them and think they are quite pretty.

Personally, I can't find a bra in my actual size, which is 32B. I usually have to go up a bandsize and just adjust it as much as possible and/or hope it's cut small. Plus, there's no such thing as a bra under a D cup that isn't padded. T_T

It's hard to find non-padded ones at D, too.

Seriously, my tits are big enough, I don't want padding!

The big thing that sucks in the US is that 99% of places only carry up to a DD or DDD. It really isn't right. They need to at least carry the larger size option online. I know it would cost more, but geeze how hard would it be to have a few made up for women who aren't capable of fitting into smaller cup sizes?

Another HUGE issue is that large cups to US stores means large women, which isn't always the case as we can see. There is almost no way to get below a 40 backspan on a cup over a D size.

There are UK stores that make larger bras link though.

I've heard that Nordstrom carries imported European bras; I checked their selection online, and was amazed to see my size (32F). Unfortunately, the same bras are usually $10-$30 more expensive a Nordstrom's than at online-only stores like Bravissimo ( link ). I'm completely fed up with other options, so I'm planning to head over to a Nordstrom when I get a chance, and try on as many styles as I can... then write down the styles and sizes, and order them from Europe. Even with international shipping, it's be cheaper!

Try living in a small town. I can't find any bras that fit me at the local Younkers, unless they're the granny type. Why can't there be bras for full-figured women that show off a bit? I don't want neon leopard print, but something other than white or beige would be nice. The one good bra I have that fits, I got in the UK. Next time I go over, I'm going on a spree. Anyone else know of good places in the Ankeny/Ames area for a gal to get 36DD bras?

Cacique has cute things from time to time, but you might have to order them online. I wear anywhere from a 38DDD/E to a J, depending on the brand. I'd love finding a bra that doesn't come in an awkward box and color
