    Hi guys not sure if any of you can help me ..I need to buy some new bras and was wondering if any of you know where I could get size 40G (preferably padded) bras from without the rediculous price tags!

    Thanks!

    Have you tried bravissimo? Am a 36ff and find they are about the only place I can get a decent bra that is also pretty. They have a great website

    Second vote for bravissimo here im a 38 GG and find their fitting service really good and the bras are really comfortable. The staff are really nice too. Its worth spending alittle more to get quality but there is a sale on at the mo.

    Bravissimo are very good but quite pricey, I've had bras from them in the past being a 34H . You could do what I did and get measured and buy 1 from Bravissimo then look on ebay for the rest. There are usually quite a lot of people selling bras new with tags for a lot less than you pay in the shops. Once you know exactly what size you are in a particular brand you can buy with confidence that they will definately fit x

    I <3 Boux Ave! Yes they're pretty pricey, but theyve got a 50% sale on at the moment and they're the sales you want :D
    Also throughout the year they'll put on, buy the bra & get the matching underwear for free or buy one bra get one free. Yes im only dooty when it comes to bras, but i know a lot of women with bigger boobs than me who go there and the bras last them years, i've still got my first bra from there which i bought 2 years ago...i'm too big for it now, but if i shrink i know its still going strong for me to start using it again :D

    My OH has recently discovered Ewa Michalak (they are based in Poland but ship to UK for reasonable cost) and the quality and design of their bras is brilliant. Not only do they look great, but she was saying they have really great support in a way that others didn't and they give her a cracking shape.

    There is a blog named "Curvy Wordy" which recommended their bras, well worth a read in my opinion.

    I'm a bravissimo fan too.I'm a 34 FF and they have converted me. they really do know what us big girls need and they fit like a second skin only more pert!
    They are expensive starting from about £25 most are £30 but they have sales and end of season stock cheaper. They also have a loyalty points scheme.
    Their swim wear and night wear also lovely , sexy and comfortable and flattering for bigger boobs. well worth a look.

    I second that Bravissimo has me hooked! I am a 34H and they are great at fitting. If you get fitted you may find a cheaper pair at Figleaves. Bravissimo has great bras that look sexy and can be comfortable also. Get a fitting it's worth it!

    I'm normally a Bravissimo fan too; but of recent I've been impressed by the range at Debenhams. They're not too pricey either and look amazing

    Asda is where we get most of the wifes bras from as they are one of the few places that cater for larger boobs and you can try before you buy. We got some bras in the jan sale for just £2!!!!!!! If you look on the packaging on any bra in asda it says what size that style goes to so your not wasting anytime looking

    I haven't bought bras from Asda for a while but last time I did they were good value. However, I do recommend being fitted into your bras, because they do vary, and while you might get away with buying more of the same make and style as you've been fitted into, if you get fitted every time you'll end up with different sizes.

    It does cost more, so if you can get stuff in sales that helps, but once you've got a good fitter I think you'll want to go back anyway.

    As a male bra-wearer, I bought online or without being fitted for years and thought I had it pretty well cracked, but the fact is that I ended up with bras that just sat in the drawer becasue they weren't a good fit. Being fitted for the first time put me in a 38C rather than the 38B I had been wearing, but when I got fitted with my big forms, I ended up with bras in 38DD, 38E and 36F - every bra I have for that size is different! I only wear the forms for fun, but I can see how a proper bra supports them so much better.

    I've already lost one fitter when a shop closed down, but I have a really good lady now and it's so nice to know you won't end up with stuff you can't wear. Each item costs more but they last well and you don't waste money on mistakes.
