I am a 40A, which I cannot find anywhere. I have resorted to a 40B which creates lumps of extra fabric under my clothes. Any way to decrease size of cup without taking the entire bra apart.

Thank you

Could you purchase a 38B (that would be the equivalent cup size) and use a bra extender ? I would suggest a professional bra fitting. Most women wear a band size that's too big and a cup size that's too small.

Have you tried Fresh Pair? I'm at the other end of the spectrum (small band, large cup), and always find a good range in my size.

wow misschris - I haven't seen that many bras modeled together for a long, long time (no Sears catalog shopping anymore!). I never noticed that the models all seem to have very square shoulders! And there are a few with VERY square, broad shoulders and very narrow chests - quite a unique look. I will go back and shop when I have more time because they do seem to have an amazing selection!

I'm not sure how their prices compare with others in the States, but I can buy 2 bras and pay for shipping, for less than, or equal to, the price of one bra here in Australia.

NAYY, just a happy customer.

Bare Necessities (online) also has a great selection.
