However, once I mentioned this they were quick to ask... what bras would I liked to see stocked in my size? Being a 28J (more or less), I pretty much never get asked that question. Actually, some major brands just assume I'm a junior and refuse to cater to my size range at all, so actually asking me that question earns some serious points in my book!
A problem that I often have with lingerie buying is that because my size is so hard to find no stores can cater to all my needs. Maybe I find the bikini I want on one website or the bra that I'm lusting over on another website. However, because shipping costs are so high to Brazil I end up ordering nothing at all because I figure, what's the point? While a UK woman might end up spending 30 GBP for the full-priced bra, I'd end up spending 45 GBP with shipping costs and that's not even counting the possible 60% customs fee that Brazil slaps on every now and then!
So if a company offers free delivers that cuts down on costs for me and I'm much more likely to order from them even if it's just one bra. :)
Ok, but let's get to the list of bras that I'd like to see stocked in my size. Granted, my size does change per brand so I'll also include the size I wear in each respective brand. From looking at their site, they stock Fantasie, Freya, and Miss Mandalay, since Freya is the only one that carries my size, my first few choices will only be from Freya. The rest of my choices will consist of other brands that carry my size in case Large Cup Lingerie decided to branch out into other brands. ;)
|Ellie Orchard Balcony Bra. 28HH/J (I'm not 100% sure of my current Freya size) but I really love this bra. It has an adorable pattern and I love the green lacing.|
|Luisa Blue Balcony Bra. 28HH/J Another great cute pattern. Purple and blue are probably my favorite coloring for bras so you can't go wrong with this!|
|As discussed yesterday, I have my eye on the Freya Active tankini+briefs. I see that they already have the one-piece listed on their website so this wouldn't be a huge switch for them. Also, being that I can pull of a 30H or 30GG in Freya Active it would fit into their current size range. ;)|
|Another from yesterday's post. I 'd love to see the performance top with a built in sports bra stocked once it comes out in July!|
|Edina Grey Balcony Bra. 28J I have a weird thing with this one. I know it's supposed to run big in the back so it might not be the best fit but I WANT this one. Something about the monochrome look just won't leave me alone. ;)|
The rest of the bras mentioned here are only if Large Cup Lingerie started to carry other brands, but I figured I'd mentioned them because I always love posting bras that I lust after. ;)
|CH Biszkopty. 28J I seriously NEED this bra and will probably end up buying it soon.|
|Caribbean Curve. 28JJ Another swimsuit that I just can't take my eyes off of (but I would get this with the brief, not the side ties).|
|CK Fleurty. 30J (really I would need a 28JJ but they don't carry that in Showgirl styles :( ). However, pretty much any of their Tease Me/Thrill Me/Fleurty/Smoothie/Entice I'm interested in. I'm definitely a big fan of padded bras.|
|Cleo Alexa. 28HH, possibly 28H. Shoot, almost all of the Cleo's are on my radar after my great success with the Cleo George.|
I'm sure there could be more added to this list. I have a Masquerade Rhea coming in the mail in the next couple of weeks and I have a feeling that's going to be a great fit for me. But for now I wanted to stick with brands and styles that I know work well for me.
