07-30-2012, 06:57 PM
anyone know of any stores both real or online that sell colored bras for reasonable prices? prefereably severely padded, haha. but i have 3 tops so far and have 2 more so far deisnged and mapped out, i've just run out of bras to make the tops out of. bikini tops don't work for me...cuz i have nothing going on upstairs, and the waves here are pretty intemnse and will rip them right off. thanks! lol

Target has some good ones that add like 2 cup sizes I think they're like 10 or 15 bucks depending on color and size I think Walmart might too

Yep yep. My brother gf wears them kuz she has an A cup and loves that they make her look like she's go more goin on in the upper region but she wears hers under a bikini when she swims and says they don't soak up much water at all so that is probably a plus as a mermaid

try figleaves.com

I agree, Target is the place to go.
Walmart is the only place with better prices, but you don't really get much of a discount and the
selection drops off real bad.

HOLY JESUS!!! i looked at figleaves. they are out of their g&^d*%^ minds!! 40-70 dollars for a f^^&*ing bra?!?!? pfft. no effing way. the best bras i have EVER worn i can scoop up at victoria secrets and have in 2 seconds for 40-50 no shipping required, and they have sales all the time. im not paying that for something i'm going to cut up, swim in, sew, glue, and scuff across shells and rocks.

Yah Victoria's Secret is good and just a little fyi, their cheaper at VS Pink! Kohls also has a good selection and Macys.

we don't have half of those stores where i'm stuck currently...but i hadn't thought to check kohls...i think i've been into one maybe twice in my life.

I second Target. You might also want to check JCP or Forever 21.

I third Target. You can also try Marshall's, TJ Maxx, etc...but that's hit or miss. Depends on what they have. I normally get mine from Target.

I would agree about trying Target. They have quite a selection.

of all stores posted since my last comment, we have only tj maxx from y'alls lists. i'm on the canadian border in a tiny tiny city of only 30,000 people. this place sucks for selection. and i've been here for 7 years since the store oprions were just about a full on half of what they are now.
but i ordered one more size bag of shells....and i'll hopefully be starting the new bars next week. :D i can't wait.

I'm Canadian, so unfortunately I dont have a target close by ;)
At Marshalls, I once got bras that were 3$ each! I guess It all depends what they have in stock when! (:
But I agree that Target, Marshalls, or Winners would be a good idea (:

i miss marshalls'...we had them in california..but not where i am now. :(

I used to work at Marshall's. TjMaxx is the same thing. It's just the parent company.

08-04-2012, 11:09 AM
good to know...i might have to make a trip up there later. i've only been into one once.

My favorite place to get my mermaid bras are from wal-mart, BY GEORGE and they are like ten dollars each. They come in nude, fushia, turquoise, white and black so far

Victoria Secret has the bombshell bra style now for swim suits. It adds 2 cup sizes and pushes up. However they're really expensive. If you are worried about water absorbing in the padding too much with cheaper bras, you can always buy silicone push up inserts (JoAnn fabrics sells them for cheap), then take them with you bra shopping. Buy a regular bra (no padding) but when you wear them with the inserts it looks good! Then get some E600 or other strong glue and glue those suckers in there! It won't absorb water, it'll be cheap, and you'll look great!

Ross or Thrift shops, you may not always walk away with something every visit but you can usually find something good for 6 bucks or less
