Where to shop for bras for bigger chested girls?

Victoria's secret is nice but their bras aren't very comfortable for bigger chested girls. Any suggestions for where to shop for comfortable yet not hideous bras for bigger chested girls?

  • Nordstroms has a great selection. I also had luck at a mastectomy speciality store.

  • I don't know if you consider 36D a big girl but that's what I wear and I get all mine from VS and they're very comfy but I had to go get fitted.

  • I'm a 38d or 40c depending on the bra I get and I love VS bras because they are so comfortable and I get fitted once a year. I get there Body by Victora Sercet full coverage bras.

  • I think of large chested in two different ways. Most stores (including VS) only serve large cups sizes for large band sizes ( so if you want a DD or larger cup, you have to have at least a 38 or 40 band).

    I wear a 32DD. VS bras don't fit me well. When they do have my size (which isn't often - in store), it's almost always in a demi push-up -- which I DO NOT WANT.

    I go to a specialty lingerie shop. Sometimes Nordstrom, Macy's, or Bloomingdales, will have bras that fit me well; and if I'm lucky, I can catch a sale there. Otherwise, I'm paying big bucks just to get an everyday bra that supports comfortably without creating a silly amount of cleavage.
