Need recommendations for a good bra please.

Want something that gives smooth outline, and lifts. Really need the lift bit. For a C/D cup, that hopefully doesn't cost a fortune. But I am willing to consider all options.

Berlei Barely There. They're not cheap, but you can generally get them on sale somewhere. I resisted for years spending the money on them, but they are so worth it

What suits others may not suit you. Some won't give the right shape to another person.

But...

Personally I got lucky with Targets own branded 'Remarkable Bra'. I have bought 4 now. Has a smooth line under clothes, lifts, is comfortable and best of all, cheap at $30. I'm a C/D cup.
Give this one a go to see if it suits you.

Ended up getting a $25 Hestia bra from Big W as I happened to be there. Very happy with it.

I love the Hestias from Big W. They are the only ones I have used to restrain my 20Ds for a couple of years now. Have just bought three new ones recently.

Yes I will go and get a couple more I think. I think my chest is about 2 inches higher :)

Another vote for the Berlei Barely There. Amazing bra, smooth under my clothes, great support.

I love Bendon Damask bras.  Good support, comfortable and have you 'pointing' in the right direction! ;)

Some reviews I found online:

Another who loved her Berlin barely there bras!

Only reason I'm not in them now is because they don't make a maternity version!

Calvin Klein Tshirt Bra. Comfortable and gives the right amount of lift. I think they're about $50 although you can get them at Costco for less. These are the only bras I own other than sports bras.

Freya bras are the best for me. But they are $$$. I am a G cup though

I love the Hestia ones too, they last well and I have them in all the colours

As much as I loathe the branding, by far the best bra I've ever had are the Playboy 'bunny' bras from Bras n Things.  Some are a bit fussy, but I've got a couple of generally smooth ones.

^funnily enough my favourite bra is a few years old and it was $15 from Aldi. It is way past it's prime though.  And the newer Aldi ones are not suitable.

Eta. Googling your suggestion

I love my Victorias Secret - Body by Victoria Demi.  I used to have the Berlei barely there but love this more.


If you are in Melbourne a trip to Chadstone to the store is great.

I'm loving Fayreform at the moment, gives good lift and separation - No uniboob! They stock a large range of sizes and are often on sale.

Another vote for these. I am a larger cup and they are great.

I have a number of Corin bras (I'm size 34H) style number 17871.  I tend to buy bras especially designed for larger cup sizes but you could check whether they make C/D cups, they probably do.  Lifts, supports, separates, great.
