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.

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)
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)
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)
