Bra sized long-line bikini top for a 40H

Summer approaches, and having embraced the idea that all you need to do to get a bikini body is to put a bikini on your body, for the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE I am bikini shopping. I would like one with bra sizing, and the sort of long line coverage seen in this top at Torrid. Alas, Torrid doesn't have bra sizing, and the bra-sized tops I've seen (e.g. Elomi) don't have that long-line coverage below the cups. Does anyone know where I can find what I'm looking for?

House bras!

I'm looking for house bras. House bras are non-underwire super-duper-crazy-comfy bras that offer a modicum of a 'having it together look' with a maximum amount of comfy--comfortable enough to sleep in. [more inside]

What is the best plus size sports bra available in my price range?

Is there a worthwhile plus size sports bra available in a 3X/4X (clothing size 22/24) for under $30? I tried every one at my local Walmart, to no avail. The two that fit over my head were completely unsupportive and more like something you'd wear to bed. I don't care about uniboob or looking too flat, just being supported when I work out.

Best Big Bras That Won't Break the Bank

This is not a question about the best bras, but merely the best ones under $50, specifically those for a chest that's approximately a 42H. What are your favorites? I am looking for bras with underwire; my non-underwire needs are sufficiently covered by bras from Decent Exposures. If you have found the miracle underwire bra for less than $50 that can be machine washed, I especially want to hear from you. [more inside]

Strapless bras... in 36H?

So after serious effort with measuring and trying on a million bras, I got myself into the right size about 9 months ago -- UK 36H or 36HH, depending on the bra. Relief! However, I have developed rotator cuff tendinitis and an angry trapezius muscle and now, bra straps cause agony. I'm thinking a strapless bra might be the answer, but with my size and a few other challenges, I'm not sure this is going to be possible. Is it? [more inside]

Cotton, non-synthetic (or low% synthetic) sports bras?

I have a sports bra that I bought in 2005 - Jockey, cotton, a bit of stretch - and it has outlasted a plethora of synthetic sports bras. When I shop at Target, Athleta, etc. all I see for sale are 100% synthetic bras that stretch out of shape, make me feel claustrophobic and get icky when they're wet. Help me find the Platonic Ideal of Cotton Sports Bras again. [more inside]

Finding the right bralette for a C cup.

Hi ladies, I have searched the internet high and low and I am at a loss! I am looking for something similar to the Commando Tulip bralette to wear under blouses for work. The caveats are: Can't show nipples (knocks out the Tulip). Looking for long line so I can tuck my shirts into skirts without wearing a cami underneath (too much bulk). Some kind of support - I'm a 34C cup. No lace cups (texture shows through most blouses). Must be nude color. Can anyone help me find a solution? I'm not sure why this has proved to be so challenging!

Bra-buying in Berlin for Beginners

Where should I go in Berlin to buy good bras? What are the good European brands that can accommodate a plus size, busty gal (I think my Euro size is ~85E)? I've recently moved here from the U.S., where I know how to do all this. I'm prepared to spend some money for quality. I don't think I need a fitting, but I need to know where to go and what brands to look for. And what's bra buying etiquette here, i.e., can I try them on in the store? I don't want to do it wrong! Those Karstadt shop ladies can be really bitchy, and I don't want to get yelled at.
