Where can I go to buy a T-shirt bra in Tokyo, preferably in Shibuya or Shinjuku?

A year or so ago, Uniqlo discontinued my favorite bra. I bought quite a few, but they need replacing soon. Help me find a replacement in Tokyo! I live on the Toyoko line, so Shibuya or Shinjuku would be preferable.

Snowflakey details:
- I wear a 75C in Japanese measurements
- I need to be able to try them on, so it needs to be an actual store. (I speak native Japanese, so communication is not an issue)
- With underwire
- no lace, frills, etc. Most of the bras I've bought in Japan have lace!
- I would love if I could find them at reasonable prices (around 4000 yen or less?). Wacoal's t-shirt bras are around 7000 yen. Uniqlo's were 3000 yen.

Actually even with shipping the best bet has always been http://www.figleaves.com/uk/. For really plain bras you might check a store like Seiyu - otherwise it's lace and foundation.

Maybe have a look at Shimamura? I've found a few good t-shirt and plain bras there. The prices are definitely reasonable, 1000-1500 yen.

Response by poster: Thanks - I finally found a similar bra.
It's from the Wacol Beauty Plus Dressy line. Two downsides of this bra: (1) It's only sold at select Ito-Yokados (2) it's 6000 yen. At least I found a bra that works!
