    Default Bras - buying online - recommendations!

    Where is the cheapest place to buy 'less-common' sized bras online???

    Recommendations please!

    Dont bother suggesting physical stores, theres only one place in Brisbane that sells my size & i had a dodgy fitting from them today so im left with no choice but to try & fit myself & buy online.

    I cant keep paying $80 per bra, we literally cant afford it!!

    I would recommend going back for a refit with another staff member. If you have an uncommon bust size, i think buying online is bound to lead to frustration and disappointment, unfortunately.

    Bravissimo or figleaves. They are both UK stores, but you can usually get 2 bras for around $100 including postage.

    I would recommend looking at the sites to see what brands they have them going back to the store and have another fitting. Then buy online

    I have bought bras from http://www.bellaforma.com.au/shop/home.php they're based in Cairns. I think I've returned stuff without a problem too. Prices aren't hugely cheap, but sometimes they have some good sales.

    I'm a large bra size (about 16F), which i imagine is easier to find than 8F. Bras are expensive. What I've done in the past (probably at the same store as you heartstringz) is find one that fitted me instore, then bought online. Found one cheaper on Ebay. Felt a bit bad doing that to the store. .. but bras, esp large nursing bras, are expensive 😕

    I reckon less common sizes are less reliably standard-sized - ie more variance in what is called a 16F than a 12B, so harder to buy without trying on.

    I used to be an 8F and bought mine from Bras N Things. It was easy to order online and return to my nearest store if they didn't fit.
    The range for 8F used to be limited, so I often used the sister sizing and went with a 10E and that's a pretty standard size. Even now, with a smaller cup size, I usually use sister sizing so I have more variety.
