I know we had quite the discussion going a while back about bras, so I wanted to share this information with you.

I heard about a company called True&Co. and after investigating, I thought I'd give it a shot. Here's how it works: you answer some questions on their website about your current bras and how they fit, some questions about the shape of your girls, etc. You never have to measure! They come up with several bras suggested for you; you pick 3 and the company picks 2. You pay a $45 deposit and all 5 bras are shipped to you for a 7-day trial. You are free to wear them as much as you want just don't take the tags off.

Before the 7 days is up, you go back to the website and let them know which bras you want to keep (if any) and which ones you are returning and why. Put the bras you're returning back in the box, take it to UPS, and you're done. They charge your card for the balance if you're keeping any of the bras.

I just did this, and it was great. But they don't have anything bigger than 38 right now. They are planning on carrying bigger sizes at some point. If you're interested, here's their web site:

I have been 'fitted' for bras so many times, and this is the best I've ever found - there were 2 bras that I bought and one of them is really, really comfortable; the other is okay and still way better than any other bra I've tried. I will definitely buy my bras from this company again!!

That's amazing, Yonuh! Thanks for clue-ing us in on this company. I'm going to have to check them out further... If I could only remember what bra size I am!

Thank you, yonuh. I've spent years looking for the proper fitting bra. Still haven't found it. Terribly disappointed in the Genia. I'm gonna check this out. I too have been fitted for bras. What the so-called experts recommend is too uncomfortable.
Can't wait to try this. Thanks again.

You don't have to know your size, Anne, just what bra you wear - the size should be on it. If you don't know, then I guess you'll have to measure! And good luck, jabber, hope you find one that fits!!
