Mission: Fight my way through the semi annual sale crowd and see if any Victoria's Secret bras work for me. I do enjoy some of their panties so I'm there either way. After some digging through bras I started to go by feel - I know their padded bras aren't going to work for me since I need that space in the cups. And most of their bras are super padded, so this quickly narrowed things down.
The result: This bra
This bra definitely doesn't have enough cup depth for me, but I like it pretty well. Similar fitting bras from other brands become uncomfortable due to the too shallow/too ... small fit, but this one is pretty comfy and provides a good shape. The cup is open enough on top that there is minimal cutting in on the tissue that doesn't fit in the cup.
This bra does make me realize the quality of other bras that I take for granted. After about a month of wearing 2-3x a week, this one is looking a faded along the wire and armpit areas. Meanwhile my beige Wacoal bras are hardly faded after 8+ months.
I would never pay full price for a VS bra, but they have pretty good sale prices so I would recommend exploring if you can sister size into their sizes. Plus, they're everywhere online for cheap - though being able to try them on makes it way easier.
