    I would like to find a store that will measure clients, accurately.
    I've always worn a 34 DD but still bulge out here and there. Even with a mastectomy bra, they don't measure but fit all the bras they have and you get the one that fits closest. That still doesn't fit quite right, but close. Since I'm over 65= SS pays for more than one of these over priced bras, about $60 or so each about 3 years ago when I checked, (I don't go to doctors much) so I take it of course.
    We did have an excellent store here that advertised such a thing, then it closed right after that. So I stuff my right side and my bosom buddy into the other usual "almost fits" bras and try to forget it.

    My sister wears the same size I believe. She has a really hard time too. we spent a good portion of the summer on the hunt looking for bras for her. She ended up finding a bunch at a local lingerie and what not shop. They had a few in stock and were able to order whatever else that she wanted. She seriously looked everywhere. Really hard to find them that small of width with that big of cup. She is also only 18 so she didnt want anything with huge wide straps and full cup bras that she couldnt wear with anything but a tee shirt. The local shop ended up having some really nice ones that were good quality and what she was looking for. 60 bucks a bra though. Good look

    also, consider looking at 36F. they're easier to find and you can take in the back 1" on each side. remember that the cup will also be wider, so be sure to try on. they should also be available at places like kohl's and walmart's and like penney's. it won't be perfect, but it will be better.

    you can retrofit a bra to fit yourself. put padding under the straps, reshape a cup that's too large, and take in a too loose back. i did it for years when times were hard.

    Just found this site online. Know nothing about the company but they have lots of sizes and good prices too! My 16 yo DD wears a 44 H so I've been looking everywhere with no luck. Not even Lane Bryant has them that big.

    Been there, done that. Grooves in the shoulders at least 1" - 1.5" deep, hunched shoulders because when you meet people they talk to your chest not your face and hunching your shoulders helps hide your chest, back aches that only laying down helps. Went to a doctor and after a long talk decided to go for a reduction. WOW WOW WOW - I highly recommend it and because of the above mentioned things the insurance paid for it. I lost almost 8 pounds in "boob" weight. I decided not to go down to a small size but chose a D-DD. I have a small rib cage so going to a 34 D or DD was an OK change. And everything feels normal. I was big from age 15. My sister (10 years my elder) had the same problem (I think we inherited it) and after she saw the results from my surgery she thought and thought about it. But she waited and was 65 when she had it done. She wished she had done it sooner. My daughter (also cursed with a big chest) had surgery at 34. She had another baby at 39 and she was able to nurse her baby.

    The first thing I did was go buy regular bras in a regular store at a regular price. WOOHOO - it was better than buying fabric (LOL). I've never regretted it. And you have right perky girls with no implants. It's been 20 years and I can still wear a halter dress or negligee and look good. And a bathing suit off the rack. Oh my goodness. Got a new lease on life. I felt sexy again. Used to joke that I went to "Omar the tent maker" for my bras but it wasn't funny. It was embarassing for me.

    I know a reduction it isn't for everyone but it was a good decision for me. Good luck in finding your bras. I know what a chore it is finding the right fit. I did it for many years. And if you ever think about a reduction and want to talk, PM me.

    Now if he could do the same thing for my "bottom" I'd be in great shape :lol: :lol: :lol: 'butt' I think that's a lost cause.

    Sorry for being so long-winded. Just wanted to share my experience.
