Ladies???? can you help me find a strapless bra in my size that isn't 50 dollars???

i tried bare necessities and some other sites which only had bras for 50+ dollars. i'm a 28 DDDD or a 30 DDD. i can't afford to have one custom made. i have this adorable spring dress that has a spaghetti halter strap. i can't go braless. can you help find my size online and post the link. i really don't want to spend more than $20. it has to be a 28 or 30 band. 32 is too big. thanks. please help

  • I've never found one cheaper than around $50. Once you pass about a DD, unless you have a larger band size, you're really going to pay for it (I'm a 32FF, so I know). You *might* be able to find one on ebay or something, though. Sometimes there are new bras on there from stores. I'll do a few searches, though. Is $20 your absolute max price, or can you go higher? If you can go higher, I can probably find something, but at $20... it's hard to find an "average" sized, good bra for that price.

  • i've tried all the stores, including tj maxx. they don't carry bras for skinny women with huge boobs. nothing under a 32 and even the 32 only goes up to a c. i would be a 32 DD but like i said the 32 band it too loose. they have these sizes online but for some serious cash

  • Im sorry, but if your a DDD you really shouldn't be wearing anything that is strapless. Your kinda STUCK paying through the nose to get a well fitting and supportive bra when your this large breasted.

  • Go through your local phone book & look for Corsetieres in your area. Call them, explain what you need & ask the price. You will be surprised that they are not expensive at all & can order anything you need. You can go & bring the dress & try it on there with the bras to see the fit & they'll help you a lot.

  • try looking up fredricks of hollywood...a friend of mine had really big boobs until she got the reduced and this is where she use to shop. Most of their bras are like 50, but sometimes they'll have deals that are like buy two for 60 or something like that. Also, if you haven't already look for bras that can change to strapless, halter, etc. these are eaiser to find anyways
