    Its not even the shaping, its the fact they don't last as well. For some reason the cups on larger sizes in Primark aren't washing machine proof! A size B bra lasts about a year or so depending on if the colours run, but an E cup is completley fecked up within a couple of months, they're £2 more expensive so they obviously make them worse quality on purpose to make more money!

    Clothes companies assume that because I've got big boobs, I'm fat.

    I am SICK of buying size 14 clothes, just because the size 10s (that fit my body perfectly) are too tight over my chest. I shouldn't have to wear baggy clothes just because companies refuse to cater to women with REAL CURVES who aren't just fat.

    CURVY =/= FAT.

    OH AND ANOTHER THING. How comes companies that make beautiful lingerie never go up to my size? Apparently girls bigger than a DD don't like wearing nice bras. Or, if they do, they must be rich. I shouldn't have to spend £30-£40 just to find a decent bra. I wear a 32F cup, and I wear size 10 knickers. What does that tell you??

    I swear to God, clothes are designed by skinny *****es who are jealous of girls with real curves, and it goes the same for lingerie. We have to pay a lot of money for a limited selection of underwear. I bet it's a scam. They know that because girls with DD+ boobs NEED bras more than girls with size B boobs, they make us pay MORE. They know they can get the money out of us because we have no choice. I can't pop into Primark and buy a cheap bra. New Look and H&M don't go up to my size. It isn't fair.


    I google image searched "curvy woman" to prove my point.

    Curvy:
    I would argue that I, as a size B/C needs a bra just as much as you do. You're right, it's a complete conspiracy caused by 'skinny *****es' against people with 'curves' :nothing:

    I hear you sister! Most shops don't even seem to stock smaller than band size 32 or larger than a DD.

    Try shopping online - Bravissimo/Fig Leaves/Simply Yours etc.

    Not ideal as they are mostly £25-35.
    Shop online? How do you know they'll fit?

    Because if they did make size 10 clothing to fit your epically large titties then it would consequently drape and look very sad with my tragic 34C's. And that's clearly all that matters :emo:
    I suppose it's just a case of having to cater to the average, and anything outside of that becomes a speciality. I do wonder why a lot of places stop stocking bras in sizes as small as they do though.

    i am a 34 C and i have, quote 'real curves'. just becuase its diffucult for you get to clothes and you're angry, there's no need to insult everyone else. you don't need to have freekishly large boobs to have curves.

    its difficult for most women to get clothes/underwear easily that fit. unless you fit the 'standard shape' that most of them cut their clothes too. i have wide hips and a small waist and its a nightmare. Why do all clothing companies assume that all women have boy hips? HUH???????????
    I am exactly the same! I still find it hard to find a good fit with a bra even at my size, and shopping for trousers is a nightmare. I manage to get things on, they'll fit perfectly on the legs, but will they do up over the hips? Will they hell. But I don't want to have to buy a larger size and have them all loose and sad looking round my bum and legs. Cruel world.

    I have the exact same problem :l students just don't have a spare £25 - £40 for underwear! And big boobs does most certainly not mean that we're fat T_T

    The thing is, I bet you could get away with going out with just a t-shirt, and no bra, and you'd still look great. I'd look like a grandma or something, though.

    I didn't mean to be rude, it just really annoys me.

    No, I suppose they're not too expensive. Perhaps I'll show these to my mum - I'm sure she'll like some of those tops!

    I, however, am an 18 year old. I'd like to look fashionable, thank you.

    Okay, I do get why you're annoyed. Maybe I'm just bitter that I really do not look fine without a bra XD

    I 100% agree with you OP . I am a size 34G ... and it's really depressing. I can't find normal clothes to fit me.. if I try wearing something someone normal would wear, it either stretches right across and doesnt fit under the arms, or it ends up being really low on my boobs, and I look like a tramp.

    I dont know what to do anymore. I'm growing out of my clothes, I hate buying expensive bras because I grow out of them and its just money GONE. If I wear something loose fitting it makes me look huge and hides my figure, if I wear something tight fitting it makes me look cheap... I end up just hiding behind jumpers half the time. Urghhhh!
