Bra Recommendations

I need new bras badly! Can anyone recommend one that you love? Please! Here's what I'm looking for:

1. Comfortable
2. Supportive (underwire and or minimizer OK)
3. Smooths back rolls

I generally am a 38D or around there. Thank you! I hate bra shopping almost as much as bathing suit shopping!

I like Wacoal and Natori brands. And I encourage you to take a deep breath and go get yourself fitted. If you are near a Nordstrom, they are good and understand the discomfort and awkwardness of getting measured.

I went and got refitted recently after my favorite bras were falling apart!

I went to Soma and love them!

Natori was my favorite brand, but caution... they only go up to a 38 band. It makes me mad that they don't make larger size bras.

I love Soma, as well. The people there are very helpful. You just need to tell them what you are looking for. They hold up well. Look for coupons or sales. They have them often.

I love these Vanity Fair back smoothing bras. On Amazon they are 25.00.

At Kohls they are 44.00. I have many of them since I'm a 44D and it's so hard to find a supportive bra.

I am 36DD, down from 38DDD with recent weight less.

I recently got some bras from Bare Necessities.

The bra themselves look kind of cheesy, but they lift and support really well and even look nice in t-shirts.

I also live in Soma's wire free bra when I am around the house and even sleeping. I have not had good luck with Soma's underwire.

I will also recommend Nordstrom for a fitting.

This is the only bra that I will wear:
https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-23...p66-womens.jsp

It has a front closure and large stretchy sides and back that smooth. The cups are underwire with thin foam cups.

I have problems with bras myself so I wear my Lululemon Enlite workout bras 4-5 days per week. The old ones fit perfect but I believe they have changed the coverage so I have bra bubbles on the sides with the new ones .

I wear VS Dream Angels Demi on the days when I don't workout and VS cotton bras that I love for lounge wear that are ancient.

I want to try Empreinte but always miss the sale in my size .

These are my bras and I had NO idea that they were sold on Amazon. I always buy them at Kohl's. I don't know why I never checked since I do lots of business with Amazon.

Thank you for posting! This will save me money!
