This One's For The Girls ...

My bubbies are also known as 'The Girls'. I have a hard-to-find size (32DD) and the only place I have been able to find a bra with the perfect fit is Nordstrom. Wacoal is the brand and it is usually priced in the $60 to $80 range.
Yeah. Ouch.
Bra shopping is definitely not fun, especially with prices like that! So I always get excited when Nordstrom has their sales. I haven't bought a new bra since last year's Half-Yearly Sale (don't judge ... I ain't about to pay full price!!) and was thrilled to see online that there were a couple Wacoal styles on sale.
Off to the fitting room I went ... just because the size and brand is right, doesn't mean they will fit, so ordering online without trying on is outta the question. I tried on 14 bras ... all 32DD and brands such as Natori, Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein and Chantelle. I lucked out with 2 Wacoal French Garden Contour Bras (I tried on 3 Wacoals, but only 2 of them fit just right) and priced at $39.90 each! Score!
Do you have a specific bra that you like? Don't be shy ... please share!!

I have pretty small sweater kittens so almost anything works. I do really love the vs bras sans underwire, though! I too think its pretty unfair how much they cost-its braway robbery!

For YEARS all my bras/undies have some from Victoria's Secret. Then over the past 1.5 years, every bra I owned from there was literally falling a part. Pisses you off when you're spending the money for what you think is good quality. I started getting a brand from Target (can't think of the name now) and I love it!! They've been through the wash/dryer so much and still look great! But with being a 36C, I don't really ever have a problem finding my size.

Oh Im with Keeping Up With Kaegan and Dezzy Lou Where are You! I LOVE the VS Biofit bras and prefer any bra minus the underwire! I just recently went bra shopping myself. I have lost a little weight and havent bought new bras in, well, a LONG time. Im more of a sports bra girl. But after my $250 trip to VS, I think Im set for a minute!!

I'm a 32D, I just bought 3 bra's last night @ Loehmann's, I wonder if you have them in your area =/ they have a huge clearance going on, got a DKNY (32DD) bra for $7, Natori (32D) for $6, Calvin Klein (32D) for $8. I really like bra's from Vickies, but the price really puts me off, I only buy them from their clearance racks, unless the hubs tells me to buy what I really want (not so often, LMBO).

I do like Calvin Klein bra's too, I know Elle McPherson makes our sizes, in fact, I tried on a 32DD last night and it was a tad bit too big, it was a $180 bra down to $15, I couldn't justify buying it if it didn't fit, haha.

A Fond Farewell ...

Wow! Is December already upon us? Good golly this year has flown right by! I have been a busy girl lately, hence the blog break. Unfortu...
