Default Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

Belk is having a sale. I found a Playtex non-underwire bra for $16. The Wacoal bras are always $50 and up! The one that fits me well. ggrrrr

Default Re: Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

Before kids I was a 34A, sometimes I could make a 34B work in smaller brands but not often. I never found a bra that fit right until after I had kids and ended up with a small C cup/large b cup depending on the brand still not the easiest . I just use knit bralette now.

Default Re: Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

I am a 32C now. When still nursing a few years ago I was got measured as a 32DD!

I was wearing 34 because that's the smallest band size at Walmart and Target, but then it gets stretched out too quick because I start it on the tightest hooks.

I need a new bra! but really don't want to pay $50

Rebecca Page patterns just came out with a bra pattern. I haven't made it yet, but it gets amazing reviews.

It stinks. I am a 32G so no finding $16 bras anywhere on the planet for me.

If I could sew, I would do it!

Default Re: Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

Same as heartofjoy but 32ff. I would be thrilled with a $50 bra. I was just looking at third love. They have your band size. Of course any in my size are over $65. No cheaper than my local lingerie store. Stinks when you can't get a good sale price off the rack at a department store! Though I guess for as long as I wear them, I get my money's worth! Ha!

Yay! I have had some success finding NWT bras on eBay for cheaper if you know the style and size you want.

Default Re: Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

Hello everyone!
I have been away from GCM for a few years because kids got older and life/work happens. My oldest graduates in May, and all 3 of mine are in high school this year!!!

In my current search for an actual bra that fits, I remembered you ladies! I mean, this isn't something one wants to put on FB. LOL

I'm a 32 band, G or H cup in US sizing. That is, if I measure my band size as the exact measurement of my rib cage and the cup size by how many inches I measure at the widest part of the bust.

Which brings me to this: So many places have you measure your band size, add 4-5 inches, then figure cup size from there. OR, measuring from your back bra band level to above the breasts in front (lookin' at you, VS).

If you go that route in order to be able to purchase a bra from a department store, have you been happy with it? I'd think it'd be way too loose around the band...

Because a 36D would sure be easier to find than a 32H.....

This 32j here if I spend less than $80 I consider it a steal. A few years ago I found some nice ones on breakaway bras like $27 each i bought like 5 and I still love them but I know they aren't going to last forever and that makes me sad.

Default Re: Annoying that size 32 bras are so hard to find

I am liking the Felina Paramour Gorgeous bras. I pay $20 or $25, not more.

Tanya, I haven't bought any bras like that in a long time, but back in the day when all I had was what the store had and I didn't know any better...there were one or two that were ok.

32 B as well

The only time a bra fits ok with no gaps is 2-3 days during ovulation
