Where can I find this unicorn of a bra??

I am having serious issues finding a bra that fits me. However, since I've been to multiple stores already, I've had some success defining exactly what I need. Previous Qs on bras don't address my very specific petite, plus-size situation. Metafilter, does this bra exist?? [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!

Really, What IS my bra size?

I know I'm not the bra size I wear. I am in between sizes/small size that I would have to specialty order. I am at the point that I want to drop some money to specialty order a bra that will actually fit. The problem is I'm not 100% sure what that size is. [more inside]

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.

Fancy Bras

I've finally undergone a proper bra fitting, and it turns out I'm a 40J. While this would be okay if I was happy just wearing old lady bras, I want to wear nice sexy bras too. Are there any places that sell fancy lingerie for the overly large-breasted women? (Bonus points for online and/or in the UK.)
