Wacoal is a very popular brand. Several women I know wear them.

Belk has a fund raiser for breast cancer sometime in the year and their Wacoal bra fitter is excellent. Suggest you ask someone in the Lingerie Department when the next Wacoal fitting will be.

And just how do you know that? My husband has no idea about the brand I wear and have worn for decades and wouldn't remember if I told him!

Well, I have been single since 1994 and have received quite an education over the years. Judith Leiber, Prada, Coach, Longchamp, Ferragamo, Jimmy Choo, St. John, Spanx, Chantelle, La Perla, Armani, Zegna, Hermes and of course Victoria's Secret are all names that have become quite familiar to me.

Default It’s like buying jeans...

I’ve been miserable! Ready to burn my bra! Oh...I think I missed that movement! Nordstrom in NJ! Oprah had a show some time ago all about that. If you have an idea what your size is to begin with, go from there, because different brands all fit differently regardless of their size. Google bra fitting guidelines. I know ‘em all. Bring a good friend to be your runner. After all! That’s what the sales person would do. I went to Soma, and the young lady there was helpful, but all she did was measure me, and I still had to try a billion bras anyway. I’m not crazy about their bras, anyway. The ladies with tape measures are long gone, and the department stores are so short staffed rhat you’ll be lucky if you find one. Find a ‘high end’ department store... typically you get personal attention... splurge on a high-end bra. After all, just like purchasing a good mattress for optimum comfort, if you have to wear a bra for for at least 10 hours of the day, comfort is the key. Softer fabrics; etc make a world of difference in addition to fit. I find it a frustrating task, and I’m still looking. It’s the first thing that comes off at the end of the day, but not by my hubby!! It’s as frustrating as buying jeans...you can try on a dozen pairs of the same jeans; and they all fit differently until you find the one pair that’s perfect... and then buy more than one pair, until you lose or gain weight, then you’ll be back to square one. I know all the hints and tips, but comfort is still hard to find. Good luck! If you find someone to help, along with a wide variety of styles, let me know! The saying goes, “a good man is hard to find.” I have the good man...but the bra search continues...

I find soma just didn’t fit correctly. I use a company called Intimacy. Usually can find them in high end shopping I have one locally up north, and if I go to Chicago I shop there. Not only do they do a custom fit, will make a customized piece, say if you have breast cancer. While starting at. $50 and up, it is the only company I know of that will refresh, new straps, hooks, take in, take out. That service is free. I have some pieces that are over 5 years old, and have been refreshed more than once. When product is at end use, I order new ones. The cost is unimportant compared to customer service, and fit
