S/o of the bra post...if you spend $10 on a bra * edit **another edit
December 28, 2012 at 11:29 PM
What kind is it? (Push up, demi, full coverage)





How long do they last?





What size are you? (If it isnt too personal)





I am just curious. I am a pretty average size I think (36D) and I prefer Victoria Secret, but I have purchased bras from penny's also. I havw gotten a few from target but I don't think I have ever gotten one for $10.



*I read somewhere that you should get a new one every 6 months, I read somewhere else was once a year...

** ok so I can now say I have purchased a bra for less the $10. However they were for my 15 year old daughter. Target is having a clearance sale and I got 5 bras for about $35

    Serious question, what kind of bras actually support boobs without them having underwire? I've tried without the wire before and they don't seem to work. It looks and feels awkward.

    Quoting LntLckrsCmQut:

    In this department, I am definitely a *you get what you pay for* kind of girl. I would never wear a $10.00 bra.

    FYI.... Most push up bras are made with underwire and those type of bras are the worst. They can cause scar tissue in your breasts and can cause other issues as well. Stay clear of anything with an underwire.

    I have had my $10 bra for almost two years and still going strong. I also have some $40 ones for going on 5 now, so maybe I'm just easy on them.

    I get mine at Target and I think they are like $15.  They aren't fancy but I don't like the push-up frilly crap from Victoria's secret or wherever because they don't offer any real support, they are just for looks.  The one I buy at Target is meant for women with curves (I believe it's called curvation, actually) and it has larger cups to hold it all.  I'm a 36DD.

    And their are probably other good bras out there but I hate clothes shopping so once I find a product I like I just stock up and don't have to deal with it again.  LOL

    I buy VS, but have had other brands before.  I usually pay around $45, unless I catch a sale.  I'm a 36C, had three kids that I breastfed (sagging..ugg) and I am old. lol.  So I am about comfort at this point.  I don't buy push ups..can't stand the wires.  But, if I'm working around the house I prefer sports bras.  Very comfy and if I break a sweat (which I usually do while cleaning), I don't have an issue with washing them with regular laundry.  I wash my VS bras on delicate, by themselves and line dry.  That keeps their shape and they last longer.

    I get my bras from Kmart. Two pack for like 15 bucks. Soooo comfy and tons of support. They're fruit of the loom. Light padding, no underwire, and no frills lol.

    About every month kohls sends a 10.00 giftvcard, I go to khols and buy the candies brand bra... 14.00 basically I pay 4.00 +plus tax. I wear a 34 b on a good day. I hate padding or push up.... but I have to have a nice lining since after babies my nips tend to be sensitive :-) lol. I need something substantial between me and my clothing that moves.... other wise dh would be in a predicament constantly :-) hehehehehe

    I wear a 42/44 C. Hard size to find in styles I like. Some of my favorite bras have cost $10-15 and have lasted years. I know because it's been over a year since I bought any bras.
