I am always in search of a comfy, supportive bra. If it looks pretty, that's an added bonus. I don't mind paying for quality, but when I can get a deal, well, I love that.
Back in the fall I wrote about the awesome red bra I bought while shopping in Chicago. I wish I had thought to buy more than one, because that bra rocks. I should have bought it in every color. I have not been able to find another bra like that one. I even searched Natori brand bras online with the style number and cannot find it. Since I have an aversion to department stores, I have not made it to Macy's to check out their Natori line. Nordies opens soon here in my neck of the woods, so maybe I will venture out when that happens.
In the meantime, I have been checking out bras wherever I can that does not involve a department store. I was online at Land's End the other day buying some duds for my boys. They were having a great Spring Fling sale and I happened upon the intimates link. Wowza, they have a lot of bras. And if I bought two, they would each only be $11.00. Now when I think of Land's End, I don't think of intimates. And when I think of $11.00, I don't think quality bra. However, at $11.00 a bra, I figured if they didn't work it certainly wasn't the end of the world. So I bought two bras, each a different style. What can I say, but I am in love with these bras. Especially the t-shirt bra. It is so darn comfortable and makes my 34Ds look like they are supposed to, which is something of a magical feat unless I decide to have a boob lift. (Three kids, breastfed for a year or longer and these puppies just aren't what they should be. Or maybe I should say they aren't WHERE they should be!) It's very plain and doesn't even compare to my racy red bra, but man, do I love it. The other bra is comfy, too, but not quite the same. However, I won't hesitate to buy another brazziere from Land's End, unless of course, I want a racy red bra, then I will have to go elsewhere!
