What do you look for in a bra?

I have serious bra issues and finding a good one just irks the heck out of me. I'm plus size and on a pretty tight budget. Generaly I go for comfortbut it's hard that it fits nice in teh store you get it home wear it for a day and realize that it bites in places you didn't know you had. So um, how do you avoid that and get a good one I guess.

  • comfort and support. Many stores offer free fittings, and getting the correct size is very important.

  • Comfort support, but mostly those adjustable straps need to be in the front.

  • Everyone tells me to go get fitted, so you'll know your exact size & what type of bra works best for your body. But...i'm still having issues with being naked in front of a stranger....i would like to get over that soon & go get fitted for a bra. I'm in the same boat...it's RARE that i find one that works wonders on my boobs.

    It's free in most places. Maybe you have bigger balls than i do, go get fitted if you do. I hear it's the best thing you can do for the comfort of your boobs.

  • One that fits. I'm a DDD so that's not an easy task.

  • Get measured and then go to T.J. Maxx or burlington or Khols. Go find your fit first then go to a store that has the good brands for less. I usually go to Norstroms Rack. Buy three or four of the ones you think you like then wear it for a week and if you don't like them take the rest back.
