    Go to Victoria's Secret, there will be some one to help u choose the correct size. Its very costly there but u can know the correct the size from there & purchase it from the other store(like walmart, target.....).

    I had different problem(elastics in the Indian bras became very loose after couple of washes) so I did this(the above).

    Hope this helps

    I did try the Playtex brand. After about 6 months ,it becomes too loose and looks awkward. I was hoping to find good lace bras and dont have an idea where I can find one. Any help?

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TD class=textGray12px vAlign=top align=left colSpan=3>
    1. <LI class=textGray12px>Wrap the tape measure around your chest, just beneath the breasts.
      This is your band size (example: 38").

      <LI class=textGray12px>Wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your breasts. This is
      your bust size (example: 41").
    2. Subtract the band size from the bust size (example: 41"-38" = 3").

      Match your final number (example: 3) to the corresponding cup sizes
      below. (example: 3 = C cup. This bra size is a 38C.)
    <TD vAlign=top width=33>[​IMG]
    <TD class=textGray12px vAlign=top width=170>2 inches = B cup
    [​IMG]
    3 inches = C cup
    [​IMG]
    4 inches = D cup
    [​IMG]
    5 inches = DD cup
    <TD class=textGray12px vAlign=top width=215>6 inches = DDD cup
    [​IMG]
    7 inches = F cup
    [​IMG]
    8 inches = G cup
    [​IMG]
    9 inches = H cup


    Thanks

    Re: Right bras

    Hi

    When i check the stores i find all the bras(usually the bigger size) has a thick base and i feel it will irritate the skin, so any ideas for that?

    Hi SanRavi,
    When you buy cotton ones they will make the strap as thick to provide enough support.No they will not irritate the skin.
    Thanks

    I usually buy from Sears or JC Penney too. Even though I like the fit and the seamless cup that we get here in US, I sometimes l don't like the underwire. But then if they are the right size and fit, it is good for support.
