Arrow bra advice? - September 13th 2014, 06:32 PM

Hello, so abit of an awkward question,
I just realized I kind of need a bra, since I've just been wearing bandaues for a good year and I find them inpracticle, so I measured myself and found out it's editAA
The problem is, I can't find any store that sells them for under $15 dollars!
does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not willing to pay $50 for a freaking bra

Pretty much if you're not the "target" bra size, it's going to suck in either in price or availability. Since I recently switched sizes, I've had to buy all my bras online in places such as Amazon. While you don't get the advantage of trying it on first, they are usually much cheaper than the ones in stores and you can find reviews that let you know if it might fit your specifications. It also helps sometimes to watch out for sales and clearance racks such as those found at the mall, as they're the places most likely to have hard-to-find sizes for cheap.

Hey there,

I agree with the above advice about looking in sales and online places, but I also wanted to add, if you can find a fit in a "sister-size" bra. These are bras that may also fit you, and are easier to find and perhaps cheaper. Try looking online to find your sister size and see if they fit? However, it is also important to buy a good fitting bra too, even though it may be expensive.

Since you measured yourself, it might be an idea to double check your measurements by going to a bra-fitter and they may also be able to help you find a good fitting bra.

Hope I helped!

I know that Target has good bras that come in almost every size. You could also try looking in stores in the mall such as Macy's or JcPenny, which also have a lot of bras that come in many sizes. However I'm not sure if you'll find it under $15, but I'd say Target or Wal-Mart would be the best bet on that. Hope this helps.

I found my bra at Target, and I'm a rare size too. Rue 21 also has AA bras. At worse case, lower the band size by one size, and up your cup size to an A. That sometimes works if you can't find your size, but make sure you try it on at the store first!

Target has a good selection and they are relatively cheap. I would definitely try it on before you buy though. If you go for a different size than what you measured, that's really important.

Honestly, I would pick quality over price in this situation. If it is possible, it's better to choose a good fitting bra instead of something you bought because it was cheaper. Bras are way too expensive.

I'm pretty sure Target has AA bra's and there not that expensive so I would try there.

It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are
