What is the best bra for size 36 dd and higher? Please help!

I am sick and tired of buying bras that end up hurting me after wearing them for less than 2 hours!!!!!!!!!! Victoria's Secret isn't working for me anymore! Anyway, I am a size 36-38 and DD naturally. If you are around the same size...what is the best bra you've ever owned, why do you like it, and where did you buy it????? Please help and thanks!!!

  • Whatever the brand, I highly recommend getting a good fitting done at a specialty store. We often think we're one size and we're way off. If you get the wrong size, it will not support right.

  • I by mine at Shopko its the only place I have found that has comfy bras. You do kinda have to search for them because this size sells fast but I find its worth it.

  • We just got Kohl's down here in NW Fl and I love them! I love them esp because they have minimizer bras for less than department stores. I wear a 40-42DD (used to be a smaller cup, but thanks to lots of weight gain....) but the best one I have found was a Lillyette Minimizer. Not only does it help "minimize" and allow button up shirts to fit better around the bust, but it keeps the breasts "in" with no hangover, if you know what I mean. HTH's!
