  • I know they are expensive, but the IPEX from Victorias Secret really is worth is. They're about $50 a piece, but I have 36C and they're the best for support that I've ever found and they last forever.

  • If you're not afraid of ordering something out of a catalog (I hate not being able to try it on first) try a Bali. They're a little higher than some brands (between $28-$40 depending on the style), but they're worth it. They give great support and they hold up for forever! I've got several of the Bali minimizers (I'm a 34D) that I've had for eight or nine years, and they still wear great!

  • It would be best if you went to a bra shop, the kind with women who have been selling bras for 40 years. If you are in the Chicago Metro area, contact me directly and I will give you a couple of suggestions.

  • Yes I was a professional bra fitter at Leggs,Hanes,Bali,&Playtex and also at Macy's. They'll be glad to fit you and also recommend certain ones for your body type. Not everyone in a 40C needs the same bra. Get fitted and you'll love it.

  • Oh by the way sometime Macy's has a fitting event where alot of them are on sale and they have special people come in so they'll spend more time with you instead of also dealing with otherr customers. You can call and see if they now when they're next event will be. Good Luck!
