Busted: British Company Decides Bigger Bras Mean Extra Cash

July 28, 2008 by SheFindsShana
shefinds | Style

If you’re a bigger-busted gal like me, you know that bra shopping can be a major pain. The cutest bras don’t always come in D+ cup sizes. Finding a strapless bra can invoke the needle/haystack proverb.

And now Catwalk Queen is rightfully up in arms at British retail denizen Marks & Spencer, who conducted some spurious research and decided that bigger bras will come with a 2 pound (nearly 4 dollar) increase in price. It’s unthinkable – as unthinkable as charging more for larger sizes in any piece of clothing.

Read the original editorial here – Catwalk Queen – Busts 4 Justice (And trust me, it’s worth the read.)

If this trend comes to the USA, you can bet I’ll be boycotting any store that dares to charge me more – including Nordstrom, my favorite source of all. It would be a catastrophe, though, because Nordstrom, with its expert fitters and wide selection of bras, is home to some of my all-time lingerie favorites:

Wacoal Halo 65449 Strapless Convertible Underwire Bra: This is hands down the best strapless bra I’ve ever had. It provides amazing support without digging into the back. It is perfect for under a summer cami. ($42.00, sizes up to 38DD)

image

Chantelle Intimates Classy Underwire Bra,: In sizes up to 42DD, this bra looks smooth and seamless under thin T-shirts, cashmere sweaters, and sleeveless shells. It’s invaluable, whether you’re a 32B or a 40D. ($55.90 during the Anniversary Sale, $84.00 regular price)

image

Wacoal 85154 Seamless Minimizing Underwire Bra: A minimizer is a girl’s best friend under button downs, and this will hold you in without giving you bra bulge. ($65.00, sizes 34C to 40DDD)
