How much for a good bra?

I have a confession: I haven't bought a GOOD bra since before Lydia was born... she just turned 4. I'm going to Nordstrom to be measured tomorrow and I am going to buy a couple of good bras. I've gotten measured before so I kinda know the drill. The lady will ask me what I'm looking for [push up, underwire, padded, etc] and she'll bring me some to try on. What is a reasonable amount of money to pay for a good quality bra??

I was talking to 2 of my friends today about it but they're no help, they both said they buy bras at Target. But they have great boobs, I'm assuming they can wear anything. Mine are pathetic, I need some serious help. BFing 3 babies in 3 years has taken away my perky C cups.

Re: How much for a good bra?

  • I basically wear something that stops short of armor...they aren't cheap. Check out They have all sorts of bras. I would never consider Target a good bra. I pay around $60-$70.
  • If you can wait, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts in a few weeks though it can be a bit crazy during the sale, so you may still want to get measured tomorrow.

    I usually stock up on bras during this sale. I love the Natori and Wacoal bras and I can usually get them for about 40 dollars compared to 60 dollars.

    They also do a presale if you have a Nordstrom charge, so you may be able to get them a little sooner.

  • My favorite brand is Warners. They vary in price quite a bit.
  • After I was done nursing DD and had gotten pretty close to my pre-pg weight, I went to Nordstrom and got fitted - they are the best.  I bought three really good bras at about $60-$70 each and they are worth every penny.

  • I actually just bought two at VS, they were $30 each AND they were promoted 2/$45 AND they let me use a $10 off coupon.  It was a sweet deal, but I would have paid up to $50 each.  Of course, now I'm pregnant and they don't fit well anymore.  Go figure.
    Hallelujah, it's a miracle, I have children AND a signature!

  • I get my bras at Nordstrom and pay anything from $50 to $80, depending on the brand. My favorite is Chantelle, which is pricier.
