    Well, I meant hold them correctly as in the right size. So where should one go to get sized? Remembering I live in BFAz.

    Even the right sized bra can be uncomfortable depending on materials. Also after an hour of wearing it you may learn the underwire digs into your arm pit just enough to leave a red spot, making it a complete waste of money b/c she'll leave it hanging in the closet never to be worn again.

    Naiad, where do you get sized? I've only been sized at Lane Bryant and Vickie's.

    See if you have a lingerie shack around. Not a porn shack, but someone that specializes in ladies' lingerie. If you don't, y'all'd be better off doing it yourselves/ herself.

    Home (Geek helps) or a specialty lingerie shack out here (Pennyrich, if Twibble's reading.) Vicky's was the place that told me I was a 34C.

    I will have to see if there is a reputable lingerie place up in Tucson. Thanks.

    I know of no reputable lingerie places where I live. We have Vickie's and Fredericks... well, maybe Fred's has closed... Vickie's and Lane Bryant... that's what we have.

    Maybe Talbots or Penney's would be a better choice, but I haven't seen any women with tape measures around their necks at Penney's lately... and I don't shop Talbots...

    I was sized at Nordstrom's. Expensive, but worth it. In my experience the lower end bras do not fit as well as the upper end bras.
    Wacoal fits me much better than Playtex.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Never heard of Wacoal...

    The best FITTING bras I've ever had were Hanes... but they were not very supportive. They just kind of held them in a "smoothed" less floppy version of going braless...

    My Lane bra is holding me up and in place, but I think it's too big as there is a gap between the cup and my boobie. And it's chafing my underarm. But it's hot pink and black!!

    Yeah, Fantasie and Freya fit me a LOT better than Vickie's ever hoped to.
    Jenn, Penney's got closer than Vickie's did. You might just hafta do it yourself with a tape measure.
