Silly Rant but I wish Bravissimo would come to the USA.

Just ordered a much stalked & coveted tankini from Bravissimo (I'm in Seattle) and I wish for the umpteenth time that it was cheaper to ship from the UK store or that Bravissimo would branch out to the USA. It's such a wonderful store for my type of body, and for some reason there is nothing like it or remotely as good here. Why is this? There are at least 100 million adult females in this country and yet a good bra is murder to find.

I find it interesting that I can get many styles in the UK at the 28-30-32 band width (I'm a 30-32 DD depending on brand) but almost never here in the good ole' USA. Rant over. I have concluded that British women seem to be slimmer and yet more voluptuous from my bra shopping experiences (I'm British as well). End of rant. Hope I didn't waste your time reading this.

We have a boutique bra store here in town (Northern Canada). It caters for my 32Gs in something nicely lacy that isn't modelled on a parachute harness. Sets me back about £50 at current exchange rates.

I'm not flat chested enough for Victoria's Secret. What her secret? Her bras are shite.

I'm a 32G as well and I hate shopping for bras. It's hard to find them here (US) and even harder to find them in my size! I understand about not being able to find bras.

Oh I know, my 30Fs hear you loud and clear. Even on the odd occasion I've asked for assistance in a store here in Nevada they just look at you in disbelief! They've never heard of a band width less than 34" sometimes! Grrrrr!
Shall we get together and set up our own store? BRITVISSIMO!

Iam a 32f. When I lived in the states only two places to get underwear for big boobs small backs. Places that cater for strippers (mainly found in the valley la), and places that cater for black ladies. Weird shopping experiences,but worth it.
