Favorite Bras

My baby has officially weaned now so I am in need of some cute non nursing bras. Any suggestions? Would like to spend under $50, the cheaper the better, but I want good quality. I had Victorias Secret cotton wireless bras between DD1 and DD2 and they were ok. Just wondering if there is something better I could try?
I'm fairly large too, a 34 or 36D while nursing. Not sure what I am now though. lol

Re: Favorite Bras

After buying the cheapest bras at Target I decided to splurge on Victoria's Secret bras. I like Body by Victoria demi. I'm not a big fan of the cotton bras at VS either, but the material on the Body is much higher quality. I got two on a buy one get one 50% off sale (around $80-$85 for two). I was measured and wearing the wrong size. The patterns are limited but I mostly get nude anyway. I can tell a huge difference between the Target Gilligan O'Malley and VS Body bras. The Target ones feel like an egg carton.

Re: Favorite Bras

Get measured! After I weaned DD2 I had a hard time finding a bra so I finally went to VS to be measured and it turned out that I was wearing the wrong size! I bought one bra there, then went to TJMaxx and found a couple more there for way less -- I just needed to find the right size. I do like my VS one the best, though.

Uh yeah, I've been measured at VS twice and the first time they told me I was a 38A. . Uh yeah. No! 2nd time (same store mind you) they said I was 32DD. Uh yeah, No again! I'm in between a 34-36 band and at LEAST a C cup. My boobs spill out of a C cup. So yeah, I dont trust VS to measure me. We dont have any specialty bra shops that I could get measured at unfortunately. When I was breastfeeding I got measured at Motherhood and that bra fit pretty good.

Re: Favorite Bras

I love the Aerie bras from American Eagle. They are comfortable and pretty, and cheaper than VS.

How's the quality?

We have an Aerie store here, and when A stops nursing I thought about checking it out. I use VS (when not nursing) and they are nice but I'm not opposed to something else that's good quality and less expensive. They look really pretty.

I like my Aerie bras pretty well, though I don't find the straps to be as quality as VS bra straps.
