Thanks! May check Lane Bryant too. They had the cup, but NOT band.
This is often my issue too, Barb, the cup is available but the band is not.

I actually hate buying bras, and it's made no easier when there are no standard sizes. I've been a DD or DDD depending on where I look, and don't even get me started on the bands. Case in point...I tried on one of my sister's Victoria's Secret sports bras (DD) and it fit perfectly, even though the band size is something I wouldn't even consider was an option. I love my boobs, but they can be so annoying!

Any luck finding some bras, Barb?

I've been on a constant hunt for some pretty bras. I like them lacy and properly supportive, but wow the good ones are expensive! Like over $100 for bits of fabric and strategically placed wires. Um, unless they're sewn with gold thread, or encrusted with jewels, I'd rather go naked.

Have you checked Curvation? The only problem I have with them is that you get what you pay for. They are fairly inexpensive (as good bras go).

The great white north, eh?
I don't know if you have been on the abrathatfits sub-reddit (r/ABraThatFits) but I know they have a bunch of resources both around sizing and fit but also on brands that work for various bodies (I haven't used their resources myself, for obvious reasons, but I've seen them pointed to quite a bit and a number of people have praised how helpful the sub was)

I don't know if they have them in the US, but I found some very nice Elomi bra's (a UK brand), and am thinking of buying some. I don't suppose anyone has a first hand experience with that brand at all? Ha, I also found out that you can buy nipple covers. The things I've been finding this afternoon!

I personally have not encountered the Elomi brand, though I have heard of it.

Target sells (or used to) lace bralettes that not only support but are comfy. No wires or plastic bands and although they won't make your boobs super perky looking, they also don't let them flop around like some soft bras.
