    Good Bras? Where are they? Help!

    I started at a B cup before I was pregnant. Pretty comfortable with that. During pregnancy, gradually went up to a C cup. Then, after the son was born and my milk came in I went up to DD cup!!! Breastfeeding is far behind me and because of recent weight loss I'm back down to a C cup and may be a B cup again soon. So....

    Where can I buy a good bra in Hong Kong? I checked some of the bra stores here--Samtami etc. but found that the width that the bra cups are set apart fits a the smaller Chinese lady ribcage but not mine. It's very weird.

    I need a good bra with good foundational support. I usually buy my bras in the States at a really great bra boutique where the salesladies know how to fit you correctly. This is the bra that I currently wear and I love it. It's by Vanity Fair.

    Anywhere that sells simple underwires that are good quality and built for a western woman's frame? I'm pretty desperate at this point so any suggestions will be really appreciated! Thanks!

    Clearly I'm biased but, there's not a British woman who hasn't got a Marks and Spencers bra in her collection somewhere. Lol!

    I doubt they offer a measuring service in the store here but they will offer different back measurements.

    HTH.

    Definitely try Bralicious - a HK company that operates out of mid-levels. They specialise in breastfeeding and bigger sized bras imported from the UK, NZ and USA. See their website Bralicious - lingerie solutions that fit your lifestyle (Powered by CubeCart). I got some lovely Hotmilk stylish breastfeeding bras from them.

    I tried Bralicious for breastfeeding bras - I think they have some regular bras too don't they?? I LOVED the bras but they were going to get more stock and call me back. That was something like 4 months ago. I called them back once (still no stock), but then I had an unplanned trip back to Australia so I just bought some there. I dunno if she lost my number or something. But anyways - great bras!! Maybe I just had bad luck with the service or something... *shrugs*

    That is no good nicolejoy. I have only had good service from them but they do have to sometimes order in if they don't have something that you are after. And yes, I believe they have other stuff too, not just breastfeeding ones and bigger cup/back sizes. I love that Hotmilk stuff for breastfeeding, so much more stylish than the usual black, white or nude ... and cool feeding PJs too!

    If you would like to buy Hotmilk urgently, you can try the Zodee website as well. I have bought the Nearly Nude range from Bralicious, love them, they are cheaper on Zodee though. Worth making a comparison on prices before you buy :)

    Thanka2 - you may want to check out Private Shop (there is one in Landmark) to see if there is anything that you like. They sell regular bras, don't think they stock maternity bras though. You can then also check out Marks & Spencer across the street :) Lane Crawford has a lingerie department but they mostly sell fancy bras (La Perla, Agent Provocateur, Elle Macpherson etc).

    Have fun!
