Living in a bra desert (EU brands in store are so bad)
Recently I went to a local department store to try a few bras in store. It was mostly Triumph and one Anita.
Honestly I was shocked at how expensive and bad they were! Horrible hard wires but still super thin and flimsy (no support) cups so shallow even too shallow for me... 80 bands being too long despite me measuring 82cm underbust! Like overall cheap and bad material. horrible fit, no support and bad shape for over 80CHF (like 80$ or 70£)!
I understand now why everyone here hates bras. Those who can get away with wear non or only wireless cotton bras or sports bras! Or they buy cheap bras from H&M or chinese online stores because they can't be much worse for a cheaper price.
UK bras are around 30£-40£ but they are SO much better! Elomi bras fit me so well, they are expensive but the quality is on another level.
I am a bit harsh but I really expected so much more quality-wise... if the bras were like 10-20£ I would not rant and just say it's expected for the price. Also there were a lot of G-cups and F-cups in 70-80 cups on clearance. I wonder why? Maybe because they don't fit correctly even if one measures at that size?
Also I doubt that sales person would sell those size and rather put everyone with larger breast in D cup and a bigger band size.
