    Im a 12G and always get my bras here. I suggest buying 5 or so, try them. If they dont fit send them back. Its a bit of a hassle but their return policy is excellent. Once you find the bra for you buy a few. Then next time you buy, you already know what size u are.

    Ive only ever sent back 2 bras from there, most of them fit perfect.

    Thanks ladies! Ill try some of these places out (after checking their returns policy

    Im currently wearing a 10E as i happened to have one already & its not right. So i may not be an 8F, im not 100% sure, but i think im somewhere around that. Im having trouble finding anywhere to get an accurate & decent fitting so even though its a hassle retu ning them etc its probably best to just buy online & fit myself

    Also, those of you saying 'im a size ..... & i buy my bras from here' - how did you find out your size (accurately & correctly) in the first place? Or did you fit yourself? I cant get an accurate fitting anywhere in Brisbane it seems & its really frustrating given i have neck issues which, among other things, are exacerbated by an incorrectly fitting bra

    In the previous place I lived, I was fitted at an independent retailer.
    My local one now is rude and hopeless, but I've always found the ladies at BnT really helpful.

    I get them to fit/help every time I try a new style bra or as my size has changed throughout pregnancy etc.

    Bnt told me i was a 10E before I had ds (they've shrunk thanks to breastfeeding yay!) & they were horribly uncomfortable etc. They assured me it was perefct, that it was normal for the middle to sit off my sternum & on my breast tissue instead etc, supposedly it was the 'style' of bra. I finally figured out i was an 8G, so they were pretty wrong. Every single time ive gone there it seems like they've tried to fit me into a size they have in store, as opposed to my actual size. Ive tried 4 different stores. So i dont shop there anymore.

    I've never shopped there but friends who are slim with big breasts have had success there. I suspect may be a tad exxy but could be well worth it.

    If you've got some spare time, you could always try Trade Secret or DFO as well and just see what fits.
    Yep, second trying Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore. They aren't cheap at normal prices, but often have good sale items. They also have a physical store in Brisbane.

    I think ill try one of the online stores in the UK! Thanks ladies.

    Cant believe how astronomical the costs are though! My friends can all go to kmart & buy a bra for $30. Yesterday i bought two bras for over $160!!! Thats ridiculous! That means my son wont be getting the new things he needs this month. I dont understand why they are so expensive or where they expect us to get the money from!

    Bella Forma are great. We went on a cruise in June and one of the stops was cairns. I went and got fitted. I'm a 20f. I got a beautiful white soft cup bra for $60. She now has my details so I can buy online from her

    Try debras.com.au they are super expensive but have a clearance section which has lots of odd sizes. They do pretty much every size imaginable! They have a physical store in Sydney and apparently are amazing for fittings etc so you could ring them if you need a return etc and I'm sure they'd accommodate.

    My MIL has been fitted here and she doesn't go anywhere else now. She recommends them to everyone.

    I wouldn't recommend Debra's at all. The first thing I brought from them (after being fitted correctly) broke the first time I wore it. I went back to them a second time (as I couldn't get a bra anywhere else and needed fitting again), they put me in a bra that was not right. My hubby was with me when I went the second time and after we had waited for ages to be fitted he was waiting in the store and some of the things the sales people were saying about the customers were revolting. I did complain to their head office but I definitely wouldn't use them again after my experience there.

    I am with you sick and tired of paying $60+ for one bra wish I could just go to big w or Kmart and get three for that price.
