I am s 42 J bra size, does anyone know of any cheap bra websites?
I ordered one off ebay & it was flimsy wires and lacked support?

I don't know of any cheap websites but my local Debenhams have a section of reduced bras. Might be worth a look to see if there are any of your size.

Brastop is pretty good.

Our local debenhams stop at a g cup :-(

Just checked out bra stop, they only have a 28 in a j cup, never thought bra shopping could be such a pain lol

I'm a 36G and have seen reasonably priced bras on eBay so might be worth looking there. You can search by size.

What's your idea of cheap though? Larger cup bras sadly do tend to cost more.

Whoops sorry just read OP again and saw you had no luck on eBay! Any way you can try on in person and then search out brands online when you know a style is good?

Bravissimo has great large cup bras but not sure what band size they go to.

I am an H cup and I accepted long ago that there will never be cheap bras for me. There just aren't any - and tbh I think if there were, they'd probably all be flimsy. Large cup sizes are hard to fit and support properly without wires digging in; it's a complex product and inherently expensive to make, I think.

I'd love to be proved wrong, though.

I'm sorry I have to agree with Dirty. At a 34HH and a avid sale shopper I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on cheap bras that just make my norks a weird shape/ painful.
Debenhams do go bigger than a G cup in their own brand to a H cup! Their sizes are all over the shop and the shape can be very odd. They do stock Freya and other brands that should go up to your size.
I used to buy bras at the end of the January sales in places like Selfridges, House of Fraser, basically do Oxford street. That was pre DC. That takes some serious time, frequent trips, some luck, but can save loads.
I've never tried this company but they do your size .

Ooh. I have just had a thought. I think the same company behind Freya and Fantasie has another label..i will check it out now..

warmandwooly Fri 02-Sep-11 20:47:52

The Goddess label I referenced above isn't suitable only goes to a J cup) however
OP- The Curvy Kate label goes from a D-K cups!

warmandwooly Fri 02-Sep-11 20:55:02

goes back re reads thread, slaps head,repeats alphabet rote style Goddess would be suitable as would Curvy Kate. Dunno bout cheap tho.

StressedoutZoe Fri 02-Sep-11 20:59:24

Fantastic peeps, many thanks. Think I will have to just bit the bullet and spend, well good excuse to shop.
I hate the fact that many are internet only, gotta giggle girls x
