  • Yes, but the best place to go is Victoria Secret and let them measure you. Of course, they are doing away with my most favorite line- Ipex.

  • The only bra that ever fit me perfectly was when i went to victorias secret to get measured and they dont sell that type of bra anymore ( i cant even remember what it was called) but it was by far the best fitting bra i ever had. I really need to save money and get down there during a sale to get a new one.

  • Okay, being a bigger girl - - I go to Lane Bryant, not only for proper sizing but their bras give you the extra lift and oompf that a girl wants and needs. After 3 kids - - they are not as out there as they once was - - but after putting on the Lane Bryant bras - - woo-hoo - - I feel great! = ]

  • Victoria Secrets are really great in measuring you but they also help you out in finding the right bra for you. I'm a 38d or 40 c depending on the bra. I have always have hard time finding a bra that would fit me right and was really comfortable but also last longer. I have had my bras from VS for about 5 months and they look as good as they did when I first buy them.

  • You have to shop around.  Some bras fit better than others.  My personal favourite is a gel padded bra.  After you have been wearing it for a bit, your body heat warms up the gel and the bra moulds perfectly to your breast shape.  It cost me $50 but it was well worth it. 

    I also find that bras from Walmart's George collection are also good fitting bras at a reasonable price (approx $20)

  • it's the kind of bras you're lookin' for. if you want something comfy go for no wire or no padding.
