I’m in a bra-funk.

It’s true. I find it quite difficult to find bras in my size, even though I know for a fact that I have far from abnormally massive tits. My problem is that I am large, yet proportionate. The shops and websites that specialise in “curvy”/large-breasted bras really only specialise in bras for women who have had implants: small chest sizes, large bust sizes. I am just large and large. A shop which generally has some “boob-equality” is Marks and Spencer, but their bras can be really poorly made. Being jabbed in the middle of the day by a wire is not uncommon. Another problem I have with their bras is that the strap adjustment slips under the weight of my boobs, so I start the day slightly more perkier than I end it. Shopping with them is no picnic, either. I asked an assistant for some advice about which type of bra would keep me contained for the longest. She sighed, showed me to the minimisers, which I then said I wasn’t interested in, so she suggested that maybe this wasn’t the place for me. Rude. So, I’ve done some research online to show you which affordable bras (all under £25) are the best types for us well-endowed females:

My favourite website to look at was Debenhams, because many of the lines did a small-boob balconette style, along with a larger-boob balconette style, which is virtually unheard of. The next website I tried was Ann Summers, but all their bras had teeny-tiny cups, which would lend themselves to escapage. The third bra along was from ASOS, which I was really disappointed with. Upon reaching their bra page, they boasted a range of about 400 bras, but when I input my size, only 7 results showed up. Seriously. But this was a really nice, basic bra. There were loads of those £20 two-packs on Figleaves, which all seemed pretty nice, so I just put on my favourite. The last bra was from a website I’d never heard of before called brastop. Their range was variable, but I came across this little gem which I thought was really pretty, and because of the high cup and no dipping cleavage, lends itself to virtually no escapage.

Anyone know of anywhere else great to get bras?
