QUESTION: Girls, where are you buying your bras? After all the comments about $10-15 bras I am seriously curious. Not a fan of la senza bras but are there other places you can buy such cheap bras?? This has blown my mind.

  1. You can get really nice CK bras from winners for 8.99 (reg price 54.99)
    (conestoga winner is awful, but on sometimes if your lucky you strike gold!)
    I recommend the Winners at Young and College

    1. I also recommend Winners! Agree with the location info too. I got lucky at the Conestoga one but the one at Yonge and College in Toronto is gold!

  2. I shop at aerie...I've never had trouble, the bras have lasted me for years (I still have some from 5+yrs ago) and they have a great buy 5 get one free program with their (free) rewards card.

    That being said I'm an average (34C) size so it's easy to find sizes there for me...which I know is the complaint of a lot of friends I know who don't go there.

    They also have a lot of sales on that make it cheaper throughout the year...like BOGOs on bras, or 40% off, etc.

    1. OP here. I buy my bras at aerie. On sale. And I have never spent less than $25. Even with all their awesome promotions ive never seen them as low as 10 or 15. When are you going??

    2. I buy my bras at Aerie for $10-$15 all the time. You need to subscribe to their sales. And you need to sign up for the reward card which really brings down the cost. Sometimes AE has like 70% off sales where good quality bras are literally dirt cheap. But sizes may be very limited so you have to get lucky. I have bought 3 bras in the last 4 months from them for less than $15.

    3. If you decide to shop at Aerie, note that their sizes are really weird compared to places like La Vie En Rose and La Senza. I was in there with my mom one time and it was her first time in Aerie but wanted to see what the commotion was because my sister always shopped there. I held up one to my mom and she guessed it was an A but the tag said 34C. So just be careful and try them on. They're all super comfy though!

  3. I'm a 32 DD and I used to wear cheap bras from La Vie En Rose and the sales rack at La Senza but I find padded bras with underwire uncomfortable in general. I have since switched to sports bras and it has changed my life. If you are bigger up top, try sports bras; you will be amazed.

    1. Second this. They are less expensive, give more support and you can sometimes get them cheap in packs.

  4. I agree with 1, Winners is where I go for all my cheap bras! I'm a 32 A and when I've been lucky and they had my size I got two KC bras, one for $4.99 and the other for $8.99! They're incredible and so comfy!

  8. I'm a 30C so I'm pretty limited as to where I can go. Occasionally I'll find some at la senza for $12 during their boxing week sale, otherwise I need to pay the full $25+
    Pink has some really cheap packaged bras that I used to get, I think it was like $16 for a pack of two (no padding/underwire).

  9. There's also a great La Senza outlet just outside Toronto on the 401.

  10. For those of you who have odd sizes (30D, 34FF etc.) if you truly want a good quality bra that will last you for years and actually hold your boobs up where they're meant to be you should go to a shop like just for you fine lingerie in uptown Waterloo (in the shops). They give you a professional fitting, a lot of people are wearing the wrong sized bra. The bras are expensive (cheapest around $80) but once you've found a brand and size you like you can usually find them online for much cheaper. If you have a large chest a bra that gives you a proper lift can make you look a lot less top heavy, it's definitely a worthwhile investment.

  11. I was on a trip out of Canada and went to a bra store and stocked up, had a proper fitting and everything! Way cheaper than buying one from here , bought at least 10 :)
