    I've been having a lot of trouble finding bras in my size anywhere - 32C. Or at least, any which are simultaneously affordable and not ugly. For the love of me, I can't figure out why - a C-cup is not huge! The typical story of my shopping expeditions at Target, Kmart, etc is sorting through a lot of 32As, 32Bs, 34Cs, 36Cs, etc, but no friggin' 32Cs! It's like the phantom bra size! There's an inexplicable gap! What the hell?

    Not to take away from the issues you larger-busted women have finding a bra, but I figured while we're ranting about bra dramas, I might as well get it off my chest (heh, pun) too. It's been driving me increasingly nuts.

    Victoria's Secret are cute, but only available in Australia via the US website and quite out of my price range as an unemployed uni student... gah. Stupid boobs.

    Ugh bras are like the bane of my life, I still haven't found the perfect bra. I have to say that I quite like Victoria's Secret when I'm visiting my in-laws in the US, you don't tend to get bright, colourful and sexy bras in larger sizes over here. I use Figleaves a lot too, although like someone else said it is a pain in the ass to have to buy a couple of different sizes and return some. I got some great undies in Lane Bryant, really comfy teeshirt bra in a larger size
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    Are those size converters right?

    I have been having some trouble with the clothes I have bought from ebay which I got hooked on not so long ago (usa and the uk), I am a size 36 here, I should be a uk size 10, but the size 10 clothes have been too big, us size 8 are like tents, why? I am going to try uk size 8 next and I have no idea about us sizes anymore. I have been wanting to try ordering some bras online, does anyone know about the sizing? I am not going to trust those size converters in anything now.

    The shoe converters have been right though.

    This place is good Intimacy, The Bra Fit Specialist - Find A Store

    I really like the customer service at Nordstrom; I think they're the best.

    I was at an outlet mall a few months ago & stumbled across a store that had fantastic bras. The store is called Soma, & I don't know if they sell their bras at other retailers or not, but it there's a Soma in your area, check them out! They are also online.
    The particular style that I like the best is called the Allura bra. It fits me like a dream (34DD), & has nice shaping cups so that no one sees your nips. Very good quality bras.

    calvin klein makes great bras.
    i love this kind: Perfectly Fit Tailored t-shirt bra

    and it comes in every size from a 32a to a 38dd.
    it's the most comfortable underwire bra i've ever worn. and it's not padded to make your boobs bigger, just to give them a great shape.

    Thanks Sput. My daughter is a 32C and as Katerpillar and nat2012 said, it seems to be an impossible size to find.

    I was just bra shopping online. Go to figleaves and do a bra size search. You know what's even harder to find? 30c, I have to buy 32b and have the band altered. Usually there is a wider selection of the 32b vs. 30c. So if you wanted to alter you could get a 34B.

    I went on a bra splurge today. I think my new favorite is Chantelle's Hedona. It comes in sizes 32B-42E. Chantelle Hedona Molded Underwire Bra 2031 - Chantelle Bras

    I also liked these from Dillard's. I'm a 34C and I like a fair amount of support.

    Product: Modern Movement "Hidden Comfort" Minimizer Bra
    Product: Modern Movement Full-Figure Underwire Bra

    i have unusual measurements, so i must buy from Figleaves and other high end stores.

    If i was still within the standard A thru D, i'd go for fit over price.

    FWIW, my sister used to manage the lingerie dept at a Bullock's store, and she says that dollar for dollar, Calvin Klein and DKNY bras are the best made for the money.

    I wear a 36D (US size) and you'd think it would be easy to find my size, but it's not.

    I'm the sane size, & it's difficult. Maybe because it's a popular size?
    I've never found any Calvin klien in out size and the DKNY bras don't fit me!
    I bought a beautiful Elle McFearson bra & it was totally uncomfortable second to none, well, except the Betty Jackson bra.... Maybe....
