  2. I hear you sister. If you're ever in Toronto, there's a store called "Change Lingerie" and they have a wide selection of sizes. Check them out online. They are a bit more pricey, but their stuff is of excellent quality.

  3. That is a really weird size... I have no idea what you're body shape is, but maybe you could try slimming down a little? 34A is much easier to find.

    1. OP here. I'm tall and thin. I've got no extra weight to trim off. But, yes, 34A is much easier to find.

    2. haha wow fuckin' rude

    3. @3a: Sorry if I came off rude as 3b thought... It was a serious suggestion. I'm a 34A myself and even that's a headache sometimes, since I don't like push-ups. There are times when I've had a grand total of 3 bras to choose from in the store. :(

      (Also, I derped and meant "your body shape".)

  4. Just for You Fine Lingerie in uptown will be your heaven sent. You'll get PROPERLY fitted, and they will have your size. Chances are you're probably wear the wrong bra size because I wear a 36 band and I'm overweight. Also if you do try a 34 band, try a 34 B because band size and cup size are relative to each other.

    1. Unfortunately, I don't have enough breast to fill out a B and believe me I've tried fitting into a 34, but it's just too tight. I'm a bit bony around the rib cage to begin with so there's no hope of ever fitting into a 34. When companies design bras they don't typically have awkward women like me in mind :( I'll check out that shop.Thanks :)

    2. 4 is correct. Bras have sister sizes so a 34 B = 36 A in size and shape. Give it a shot. It should help.

      Delete
    3. Well, I'll give a B a try, but I don't know. The last time I tried on a B I had a lot of extra empty space.

    5. In a 34 it should be fine (unless store like la senza or victoria secret build their bras weirdly) but really go to Just for you Fine Lingerie for a free fitting first and get properly sized, it's not worth the hassle. Also, when trying bras, remember to swoop and scoop!

    6. I'm also a 36A and 34B doesn't fit me....

    7. Just For You is the best bra place I've been to, the staff were so helpful. Can't believe I dropped $100 per bra tho. WORTH IT.

      Delete
  5. Try being a 34GG, I pay approx $120+ per bra.
    If you want a higher end store with more selection you can probably find something that fits at Just For You Lingerie in Waterloo Town Square or Vicanie's on the corner of King & Stirling.

      Try them for cheaper bras, as another GG,I feel your pain.

  6. I'm a 30DD and it's impossible. Everything that fits properly is massively expensive, and places like VIctoria's Secret and La Senza just don't work. I feel your pain.

  7. Start bench pressing if you want to increase your size

  8. aerie by american eagle just started to carry 36A!

  9. 36A?

    Wow, lose some weight and maybe you can get into normal people clothes.

    Unless you are amazonian, in which case just beat up the sales people until they get you your size.

    1. How does a 36 band imply fatness? I dont understand. I'm a 36C and definitely not overweight at all.

      Delete
    2. Well, either the OP has uncommonly wide shoulders (hence the amazonian bit) or that fairly large chest size is coming from pudge.

      It turns out the OP is indeed on the uncommonly large side of things.

    3. ^ quit hollering at all the gyaldem. nobody wants ur dick

    4. Or they could be just wearing the wrong band size... Most conventional bra stores add inches (2-6) just you can actually buy a bra from their store as opposed to carrying more sizes. Don't be an ass about something you don't understand.

  10. 30B here and I completely feel your pain. I would suggest you try to find LaSensa outlet malls - they still have a couple of their discontinued sizes lying around and they are cute and dirt cheap!

    1. Wow I'm kinda surprised that LaSenza carries 30's. I'm a 32 and I can almost never find my size there.

  11. I'd rather be 36A anyday than 30AA =/

    1. You don't need a bra if you're a 30AA!

  12. 36A doesn't need a bra. Stop complaining. Try being a 34F.
