I would also recommend going to an independent bra fitter with real trained fitters (Vickys Secret doesn't count).
And be prepared to spend over $100 on a really really good bra. I love high quality, expensive clothing because it feels better, fits better and lasts longer. My bras I have from a real fitter still fit the same as the day I bought them, some 5 or more years ago.
I'm not plus sized, bit I have plus sized family and they agree on the bra thing. Get a really excellent bra once, and not a different $40 bra every few months.

I've found that the Freya Active Sports bras are wonderful. I currently wear a 38 G (or H depending on the brand). I wear this under a regular sports bra (you know, the regular uniboob t-shirt type ones?) to take make my boobs look less pointy. I wasn't a fan of the Enell b/c of the way the seams hit me. It just wasn't as flattering. This is my go-to combo.

The Enell bra is the only thing that has come close to keeping the girls in check! They are ugly and can be very uncomfortable at first, but they work!! I can't live without mine. I was so happy to finally find SOMETHING after trying all sorts of other "heavy duty" sports bras. I can actually sit the trot comfortably!

I'm not so concerned about riding since Aires has ridiculously smooth gaits. I'm just looking for a good, all-around bra. I went to Dillard's to be fitted last Saturday and they measures me as a 42G/H. I tried on a few bras, but the majority of them were uncomfortable.

Why are women reluctant to spend a good dollar to get a good bra? We'll spend it on footwear, a great dress or pant suit, riding boots, riding attire etc, and get a so-so bra. Yet a so-so bra can make riding unpleasant and one doesn't have to be big busted for this to happen. Even us smaller gals need good underpinning. My is is quite slim, ok, skinny, with two fried eggs for boobs. She indulged in a custom bra, not loaded with padding, just a real good fit that enhanced her shape and she was very happy with it's comfort.

When I put weight on - which I did last summer and can't shift it always goes 'on top'
What I can't understand is why companies think its a good idea to make padded bras for larger boobs - its not like you need any extra is it?

Saddlebag, it's not that I'm unwilling to spend the money on a good bra. It's that I really don't have the funds to do so. I make minimum wage ($7.80/hr) and there are other things that take priority over spending $60-100 on a bra.

Jaydee, I don't understand that, either. I understand lightly-padded/formed cups for those who want/need that sort of support. What I don't understand are the push-up bras for women my size.

I am not sure if anyone mentioned this store, but Lane Bryant often has pretty good sales on bras. My best friend is a 36G and LB is the only place she can find a good fitting bra. I buy my bras there also...I am only a 40D though...lol. I think they average about $40, but I usually get mine when they are buy 2 get 2 free. Sometimes me and my friend will go in half on the buy 2 get 2 deal so we are only spending $40 on 2 bras.

These are my everyday bras. You can't always find them in stores in the larger sizes, but you can return them to the store and not pay return shipping, if they don't work out. They can also re-order/exchange in the store and you won't have to pay (or re-pay- I always wait to order until I can get free shipping) shipping to your home. Also IME, outlet stores are more likely to carry the larger sizes than the regular stores.
