I'm dating my best friend, and I made a joking comment that I'd be fine if she ran around in her underwear, to which she replied that she didn't have any to run around in, which lead to an awkward silence. I looked up large comfortable bras (she has pretty big boobs) and saw that most are around 50-60$.
Is it really hard to find nice, comfortable bras (that aren't too expensive)? In general, not just for big boobed people
34DD here and YES, it is hard. The best places for cheap bras are Kohl's and Frederick's of Hollywood. Frederick's especially offers a nice variety for busty chicks. I think it's easy to find one until you hit about DD unless you have an oddly proportioned size.
I don't mind shelling out $60 for a bra as long as it's going to last, although I do prefer to have a few bras in rotation so they last longer. And also, bikini tops and sports bras are very difficult to find in larger sizes.
It's pretty difficult and pricey. The most comfortable bras are on the pricey range. It depends on how big her boobs are, and what material she finds comfortable. Also the underwire and some bras have padding. That's why I love sport bras. They're pretty comfy for a relaxing day at home.
