Bras in New York??

Hello clever S&Bers.

I got bra interventioned on here last summer and subsequently went to bravissimo for a bra fitting and came away the happy owner of 4 30g bras.

I have a wedding in September for which I need a strapless bra - I would like to go to Bravissimo again but there isn't any near me (had to go to London last time). However I will be New York for a few days just before the wedding so I wonder could I get something similar there?

Reluctant to order online from Bravissimo as it took ages in store for me to find bras I was happy with.

Let me know if you know anything about decent bra shops in NYC!

(Budget similar to Bravissimo so £30ish).

I never had any luck buying bras in the States ((lived there for years and would always stock up at Bravissimo when home on holiday). You could try Macy's/ bloomies, but I'd be surprised if they stocked your size. I do remember walking past an underwear shop on UwS, around Zabars I think. But the prices were much higher than in the UK.

If I were you, as you know your size, I'd order online from Bravissimo in loads of styles and just return the ones that aren't suitable...

Thanks City. That might actually be the best thing. Or I might make it up to Belfast before the date either.
