Help me find an awesome comfortable durable supportive strapless bra!

I seem to have had bad luck in terms of finding well-fitting strapless bras. I'm looking for a comfortable strapless bra that holds everything up properly for the entire evening without requiring trips to the bathroom to tug it up (!!!). I'm around a 34/36 C/D. [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]

Does anyone know how I can get my hands on this bra?

I bought the best bra I've ever worn (Wonderbra 5126) in Montreal last year and would desperately love to have at least a few more. Apparently it is not available outside of Canada. I have not been able to find any online shops that sell it. Does anyone know how I can get my hands on one (or two)? Thanks. :)

A question for the ladies about bras.

It makes me crazy they can send a man to the moon but can’t make comfy bras. Do you have a favorite style/brand/retailer? Fitting advice? I’m looking for suggestions for my size, which is 32C, but it seems to be a problem for most of my friends: large boobs, small boob, post-breast feeding boobs--whatever. This is for everyday wear, and of course comfort and support are primary but looking pretty is always a bonus.
