@SilleeMee - have you tried Soma?????


MickD, no I have not. But I just looked at their site and they don't carry 30s either. I really don't think they exist.


@SilleeMee

I did a 2-second Google search....tons of places carry 30DD.  Wacoal popped up first.  Love that brand!  Well worth the $.

 

A fitting tip I learned long ago is,

the straps should be there for 'decoration only."

IOW, no weigh should be on the shoulders.

You should be able to slip the straps off and

the breasts should still be well supported without sag.

So true!  A couple,of years ago I went to Nordstroms, Macy's and Lord & Taylor the same day.  At each store I had a,"professional" fitting from a certified bra fitter.  Yup, I was told three different sizes. These people are a joke!

I'm not surprised!   

 

A Nordstrom fitter (the idiot) decided what size I was a went out & brought back a few to try.   They were so tight that I couldn't fully exhale, and I told her this was definitely the wrong size .... and very uncomfortable!  Well, she told me that  I WAS WRONG .... and was just one of those women who couldn't be pleased!

 

To this day, I still regret not reporting her.   What a snippy salesperson!   Funny thing is, the following week I was in a Macy's lingerie dept dressing room, and heard a woman telling her friend that she had a very bad experience with the fitter at Nordstroms!

Re: Helpful Bra Sizing Tips That I Discovered

My experience has been different.

 

I am a proud member of the itty bitty club.  Haven't worn a bra since 1968.  Then last year the "twins" decided to take a trip south & never returned "home." 

 

I discovered a bra speciality shop near my home & went there to get fitted since I had no clue what size bra I wore.

 

I discovered what worked for me regarding fit & comfort were bras that snapped in the front & no underwire.  I had cleavage!!!!

 

The twins returned home.  I can wear any brand as long as the bra snapped in the front.  I perfer the boyfriend bras because they make feel I am not wearing a bra.  Perfection when it comes to comfort & perkyness for us itty bitty club members.

 

 

I am 65 (66 next week) yrs young.

I asked the same question.  Sales clerk told me that I hadn't realized bras now have "names" since the 60's.
