Have problems finding bras to fit? I measure a 40H (which feels way too loose) but try to buy a 40DDD/F or G since they seem to hold me up better. It seems impossible to find a single bra to fit in any store and I hate buying thru the mail because it is a pain to wait for returns etc. Plus alot of stores wont let you return under things (even if they were never worn.)
I am about ready to just start buying long ace bandages and bind them up myself LOL. Penny's though seems to have a good online selection, but there again no way to try them on. I really need to find some new bras though because I have had to do some "alterations" on the ones I own right now, I have lost weight from a 44H and had to move the eyes in several inches, and shorten the straps so that I am not hanging to the belly LOL.
Plus I go walking almost every day and with the lack of support I have now when I get home my lower back is a firepit of pain.

Well, yes, I have problems in this area, too. I am a 34D and it's next to impossible to find one that size. I usually just have to get a 36D and wear it on the tightest link, KWIM?

Have you tried to go to Lane Bryant, or buying some offline? I think even Victoria Secret has bra's that size. Not too sure though ... I haven't looked.

Just a thought ...

I am a 38 DD. I buy all of my bras at Jc Penneys.

They have the big sizes in the stores too.

Lane Bryant is a good one too.

I guess it is time for you to take a trip to the mall

Lane Bryant is very good. They will measure you to make sure you are wearing the correct size and also show you ones that will work for you.

I haven't measure since the boys were born but I'm pobably a G or something. I bought my bras on line from Lady Grace. They have all the large sizes plus good maternity bras, but again you can't try them on. I have gone bigger around and smaller in the cup and have been using the bali bras from the base exchange. I'm actually pretty happy with them. So I am wearing a 42DD instead of the 38F I was wearing before the boys birth. I'm not hanging out either, though I know if I were to measure I wouldn't be that size, but thats ok. I can try them on and they are a lot cheaper and I don't have to worry about mail order. I have also ordered alot from JCPennys. I don't think they go up to G though. I can't remember.
