undergarments for women

Postby lucida » Thu, 31 Jul 2008 12:12 am

Hi Ladies

I am wondering where I can buy bras with a larger cup size (size E upwards) I've tried some stores around Singapore but not having much luck. I'd appreciate your recommendations :oops:

thanks Feline Eyes for your reply. i've tried Marks & Spencer, various department stores and a few lingerie stores already. i would prefer to go to a shop and browse and try on the garments rather than shopping online because the fit needs to be perfect. otherwise if there is no store here stocking larger sizes my only options are to wait till i fly home or to ask family at home to send me new ones of versions that i already own.

anyone out there who wears a cup size larger than a DD care to share where you buy your underwear? surely there must be a store here that stocks sizes for the well-endowed?

even if the store dont sell your size, ask them if they can measure your size. at least you know your exact size. worst thing about bra is buying the wrong size!


p/s guys know bra and breast best. :wink:

One suggestion - http://www.agentprovocateur.com/bra_size_guide.html

They have an international bra size comparisons, and I love their stuff (although it's not as well made as it used to be - so be careful)

yeah yeah i've heard this advice before :lol:

C and feline.eyes, thanks for the useful links !

still waiting to see if anyone out there knows where to buy bras (sizes larger than a D). as feline.eyes said, D seems to be the largest cup size available here. i found an E cup at a store i think is called Eros lingerie but they only had one style in the E cup and it looked like granny's underwear, so no deal.

hi Ladies

today I went to Metro at the Paragon. There is a brand called Wacoal and they had two bra models which go up to an F cup even in the smaller back sizes ie a 10F. One of the bra models looked like a t shirt bra and the other model looked like a granny bra. The designs of both bras were not to my liking but its a start.

There was another brand at Metro that had two granny looking bras in E cups but the back sizes were large so they weren't suitable cos I need a bra with a small back and a large cup.

patsy_sg, thanks for the suggestion. i'll check it out.

cool_nich :???: just imagine how uncomfortable you would feel if you wore a pair of jeans where they fit your waist perfectly but your butt cheeks are way too big for the jeans.
