Does anyone have an idea where I can get a bra that goes up to a 18FF or G that doesn't cost a lot? I can't afford $100 per bra & I can't find anything suitable.

I last got some from Target but as soon as they are starting to get slightly worn I find that they're not supportive enough & my breasts start to ache.  I'm hoping there is something between a Target cheap and the more expensive ones.

I buy the Fayreform Coral from Harris Scarfe for under $50.  It goes up to 18G

City Chic often has 2 for $50.  I have 20Fs and 18Gs from them in certain styles.

Berlie are pretty good.  I get quite a lot of wear from them (Im not a big cup, just plus sized)

If you know your size in a particular brand I find Bravissimo pretty good, their sales are good

My current favourite is Fayreform Charlotte which goes to 24G, usually try for size in a department store and then buy online form much less (they are currently $30-$45)

You need to go to the BENDON outlets. They have amazing sales....like $20 bras and a lot of larger sizes. They have a website too.

Thanks everyone, I will have a look at all of these. I just walked the dog & am back aching again so I need to get this sorted out!

Years ago I wore Fayreform, I will check this out. It's a shame there is no store near me. Hopefully they do online shopping.

I have worn these before and don't find they fit me quite right. Maybe the sizing is a bit different.

I'll have a look, I have in the past struggled to get Berlei in larger cup sizes. Hopefully the range has improved.

Fayreform Charlotte 20G.

I get them online for about $40 - Boobytrap warehouse.

They have 4 hooks at the back - I don't understand Bras that claim to be for large cups with only 2 width hooks.

Another vote for bravissimo.

I get fitted locally and pay $150 for one bra, then buy the rest for £30 each online at Bravissimo.

I promise I'm not being a pusher but the bendon outlet has these brands like Faye form etc very cheap. They actually supply to the other bigger stores.  I just know the struggle of finding a bra that fits.

Here's a link. You can narrow down by size.

Years ago I got maternity bras from there, I forgot all about that. I will have a look.

Love City Chic bras, and yes, wait for a sale - 2 for $50, 30% off or $60 bra and undies

Fayreform Charlotte and Fayreform Coral, and another Fayreform Profile Perfect Contour. Have all 3 and they are very comfortable.

I got them from the Bendon Factory Outlet. Usually pay about $20-$25 each. Never more than $50.

I suggest buying from the Bendon store online for Fayreform instead of going to their outlets. I went to their outlets last week, and was charged $50 for a bra that was on sale for the site at $20! In the end I bought the other bras I wanted online, and just returned the ones that didn't fit at the store instead. Everything was cheaper online than in the stores (not to mention the two outlets I went in to had a max of two 18Gs in the whole shop, but I had heaps of options online).
