    Drafts, I wouldn't waste your time on Vickie Secret either. The bras don't hold up over time and they cost too much. There's a Vanity Fair outlet on Power Rd in Mesa, but I don't think they carry a lot of the bigger sizes. Anthem has that outlet mall, it's probably your best bet.

    I'm heading to Phoenix today with my mom for a baby shower for one of my cousin's, so I think I might convince her that we need to stop for a minute at the Outlets at Anthem.

    Just wanna say that I hate being a girl!

    Went to the Lane Bryant outlet today. Tried on a half dozen bras. Only one of them kinda fit. I've found that the problem is my left shoulder. I had surgery on it last year and wasn't able to do the physical therapy, so it's muscled/shaped kinda funky. So, bras will fit on the right side (like the one I tried on today), but will be bad enough on the left that I can't stand wearing them.

    Also, what the heck is with bra manufacturers thinking that large-breasted women want to wear a bra with a 1/4" of padding in it?! I have enough padding of my own, thank you very much! Don't need more!!

    I do have another serious question, though. Any other large-breasted women wear bras with no underwire?

    Me. I cannot tolerate underwire. I barely tolerate bra's in the first place. Never wear them at home except to ride.

    I can't not wear a bra. Too much weight hanging off the front of my chest and the sagging is disgusting.

    Hey, Drafty! I didn't read all the other responses, so sorry if you've ruled out Lane Bryant, but I LOVE their bras. Hate their clothes, but the bras are all I wear. I'm an H and it's the only place I've ever found comfy bras that don't cause my cups to run over ;) My favorite are the balconettes and the soft-cup underwires for days when I want the gals not to protrude quite as much

    I'm not as big as some of you (36-38DD) but for my size they're big. Super annoying! I totally agree with the angst at companies putting padding into larger bras. Really guys, really? Ugh. I also, can't Not wear a bra. So I have to have them. Luckily for me though I've found a couple styles of non-padded styles at VS that work. I believe mine all have underwire.

    I can't shop for bras anywhere else because of the size. :s Would be nice if I didn't have to spend an arm and a leg to pay for my boobs lol. Although I did find out recently that Kohls has some sports bras that are on the bigger size so I bought one for riding lessons. Wore it and then realized I think it's making me hunch over when I ride since. Last lesson I just wore a regular bra, not as much flopping around as I was afraid of, thank goodness! XD

    I didn't like the Genie bras at all, and I am the same size. I find Lane Bryant has the best and most supportive ones. The Genie Bras have NO support.

    I can't even get the Genie bra on! Lol

    I liked one bra I tried at Lane Bryant (unfortunately, because I just lost my job, I had to shop the clearance rack only)...and I didn't even really like it. Because the sides are so wide, the underwire pokes into me on the left side because of my stupid shoulder. I have a 2" "flap" of muscle/fat that folds over right where the underwire hits and makes it EXTREMELY uncomfortable.
