S/o of the bra post...if you spend $10 on a bra * edit **another edit

Posted by   + Show Post
What kind is it? (Push up, demi, full coverage)





How long do they last?





What size are you? (If it isnt too personal)





I am just curious. I am a pretty average size I think (36D) and I prefer Victoria Secret, but I have purchased bras from penny's also. I havw gotten a few from target but I don't think I have ever gotten one for $10.



*I read somewhere that you should get a new one every 6 months, I read somewhere else was once a year...

** ok so I can now say I have purchased a bra for less the $10. However they were for my 15 year old daughter. Target is having a clearance sale and I got 5 bras for about $35

What do you use for support? I find that the ones without underwire either don't hold em up or hurt my back!

Quoting LntLckrsCmQut:

In this department, I am definitely a *you get what you pay for* kind of girl. I would never wear a $10.00 bra.

FYI.... Most push up bras are made with underwire and those type of bras are the worst. They can cause scar tissue in your breasts and can cause other issues as well. Stay clear of anything with an underwire.

I am a 36C. Started out as a B cup. But have gotten bigger (no weight gain. I think the lifting at work and perked them up a lil bit). I wear everyday for the last 3 years the VS Bombshell bra. I got 3 of them and just a 4th as a present. I love them. They are comfortable. I wear their sexy bras sometimes too for something different. But all I wear are VS.

I agree with a pp. Pay for quality for your girls and your feet. I work in a hospital as a custodian. So I pay for good shoes too.

I like the *cross my heart* type bras. Something like this..... I've never had an issue with back problems and they support me very well.

I'm a 36G so I can't buy a bra in "normal" stores. VS doesn't carry my size. Even Lane Bryant doesn't usually offer them in store. They'll have 42G & up, but not something for someone who is smaller around but with a bigger cup.

I usually buy from Woman Within because they have frequent sales & free shipping promotions.

Good luck finding a good supportive bra for $10

A 38 d/dd depending on the bra.  I usually buy them at kohls and spend between 12.00 and 25.00.  I buy them on sale/clearance.

I'm a 36G. I usually buy mine at Woman Within. I'd look horrible & would be unsupported with a sports bra. I will pay more for a bra (up to $50, on occasion), but they last at least a year. Because I always have 2 on hand, it works out to me buying a new one every year.

Quoting SJF1989:

Is anyone here...horribly huge? Like boob size, I'm a 46DDD...on a good day. I just buy sports bras...because I've completely given up, I don't have 70 to pay for a bra that fits.
