    Default Bras for full chest?

    My DD1 has my genes, I'm afraid, but mixed with her dad's it's given us a strange problem...She's quite thin (98lbs, 5'4") so her frame is tiny, but she's full busted. I did her measurements today and I came up with 30 DD. I can't even find this as a size at the places we normally shop. Does anyone know where I can find bras in this size that are appropriate for a 12 year old? TIA!

    Bare Necessities online is a great resource for bigger cup sizes. Their customer service is great, and they'll help you find the right size and type of bra. You can keep making exchanges until you find a good fit. Of course if you can find a brick and mortar store that can do a proper bra fitting, that's ideal, but if not, contact Bare Necessities and ask for help.

    I have found Nordstroms (not a place I normally shop...) to be really good at both measuring and stocking a wide range of sizes. And I think they have a bigger selection online if they don't have what she needs in store.

    Amazon. Go to Nordstrom and see what fits then shop on Amazon when you need to replenish bc they sell so many bras at good prices.

    ITA. I'm a 32FF and Nordstrom has been the only place I can go for accurate sizing and selection. I also agree with PP on restocking from Amazon once you find a style that works.

    Another vote for Nordstrom. Their associates are extremely knowledgeable and will know exactly which styles and brands will be best for her.

    Love Nordstroms for bras. That is all I buy there, but it is the only place I can find my size (and even then, they only have 2-3 that actually fit me)

    DD is 13. At 12.5 took her to Nordstrom and she's a 30DD. They had several in her size. She liked/got the Chantelle convertible to wear when she needs a "real" bra. For everyday she wears decently supportive cami style sports bras from Target.

    The Chantelle are *expensive* but unfortunately they all are in those sizes.

    Good luck.

    Nordstrom is great. I'm a DD and I love my Chantelle bra. Off to check Amazon. Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks everyone, we hit Nordstrom today and bought her a couple that work for her. I'm relieved to have a solution, but ouch on that price! LOL
