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]

Securing the girls

I just had gallbladder surgery and the idea of a conventional bra sounds uncomfortable at the least; painful at worst. I am largish and need something to wear under clothes (when I go back to work) that would minimize jiggling or wobbling. Help me hack this? Extra points: I don't have hours of time and energy to go shopping. Name brands and personal recommendations are appreciated. Thanks.

Help with finding a bra - fibromyalgia, small band, large cup edition.

I have chronic pain, and one way it manifests is rib pain and upper back pain. It occurs regardless of bra wearing status, but bras make it worse. But I can't go without a bra, which is uncomfortable and causes different pain. I think a bra with a really wide band would help, but can't find anything in my size. [more inside]

Armored Leisure Bra in Odd Size?

I want a bra I can lounge in without worrying about underwire or having straps dig into my shoulders when I'm lying on my side. I'd also like to be able to answer the door or go on a short walk without my nipples saluting everybody around. There seem to be options until I look for my unusual size (32DD). Is there such a thing as a padded sports bra that will fit the smaller band size without causing boob overflow? Are there other/better options? This is probably impossible, but I'd like to be able to solve this problem on the cheap. [more inside]

posted by horizonseeker on Feb 8, 2014 - 7 answers

Yup, I have nipples. Big deal.

I am looking for a bra that is (a) unpadded, ie not just without weird foam cups, but entirely unlined, as in, just a thin layer of fabric (this is a must!) and (b) possibly cotton and without an underwire (those two are negotiable). I wear a size 34 D or 36 C, depending on brand. Not expecting to spend more than $25. I haven't been able to find anything like this in my size. [more inside]
