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.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

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.
