I need help!
Although when I buy my bra’s at a 32 back and it’s snug the first few weeks they eventually start to slip…
My actual back measures at 28in, 29in if I take a deep breath in So my choices are:
U.S. 30I/J or 32G, 30J/K 32H/I UK, Are they the same cup size with tighter back or not?
and where the hell do I get them for under 100 bucks?
I Buy my Bra’s from Wacoal and I really love them but the smallest back is 32 and largest Cup is G. I’m starting to think I might be off in my size just a bit…
First things first, I would really encourage you to get re-measured at a specialty bra shop. I would strongly encourage you not to get measured at Victoria’s Secret (or any chain lingerie shops), because their measurement technique is incredibly inaccurate. Going to a higher-end department store would probably be your best bet if you can’t find a specialty lingerie store. If you order from a department store or a lingerie shop, they might be able to get you a better deal than just buying online. Someone well-trained in lingerie will be able to provide you with the best places to order bras with a large cup size, but small band size, without breaking the bank.
As an alternative to special order, if you find a good bra that is the correct cup size, but you know the band will eventually loosen (all bras stretch out, unfortunately), you can go to a craft store and buy a few extra sets of hooks to add to the back! It is very easy to add another row or two (or three!) of hooks so once your bra starts to stretch out too much, you can continue to tighten the band as you need it.
Lovelies, do you have any tips for a girl in need? Do you know of a great place to order specialty bras on the cheap?
