    Why is something as simple as getting a seamless, strapless bra so difficult? So I went to VS the other day and got a strapless bra so that I can decide during my first dress fitting which option would give me the most support. So the lady told me that I can get a 32 or 34C, so I took the 34C and figured I would try it on at home, (I have the worst luck with strapless bras and I didn't have time at the time to try it on in the store) So I tried the bra on at home and sure enough it started to slide down. So, I go back to the mall today for a 32C,, Would you believe they don't sell a 32C? Only a 32B, so she tries to explain that it will still fit (I still don't understand her reasoning) so fine whatever I say ok I'll get the 32B,, oh well we don't carry the color (ivory) that you are looking for in this store.. So she calls to another mall and they stock that color, now I have to go to a different mall to get a differernt bra that may or may not fit. SO my question to you guys is this: Why don't they sell a 32C bra? (well she told me they only have two styles in that size, but neither would work for my dress) BUT I'm I the only person in the world that wears a 32C? I would think not..

      i dont have an answer to your ultimate question (I'm a 34C gal), but I too have a problem w/strapless bras sliding. Which is why I am choosing to get cups sewn into my dress - can you do that?

        34C for me too =) I'm getting cups sewn into my dress also. I don't want to mess with pulling at my dress and bra the entire time I have it on.

          I could but I'm so afraid it won't give me the support I'm looking for. That's why I wanted a backup plan just in case.. BTW Ann I found out that I wasn't a 34C by getting re-measured, apperently that's why the bra kept falling down. I bet you have the same issue as I do, besides your my long lost sister so it would only make since if that was the case.. :-)

            I always thought I was a 36B until I got measured at VS to find out I was a 36C - - woo woo!!

            Not that anyone cares.....haha!

              I think it's unfair they don't do certain sizes.. for example I LOVED a bra at VS and they didn't make it in 32A.. it's not fair.. even if I have small boobs I can use some push up to make them look bigger hahahaha

                i did that once too - a little while ago, so i should probably have it redone. i was wearing a 36C and they told me i was a 34C. i should really get remeasured though!

                  I feel certain I must have seen a 32C somewhere before...because I remember seeing it and thinking, "If I met a 32C girl, I might have to slap her for being tiny and cute w/ good sized boobs!" LOL!

                  (I meant girls that are not Tammy or Ann, of course!)

                  But seriously...I think possibly Gapbody might have that size...although their stuff is typically more functional than cute IMO. But if it's seamless you're looking for, that may be worth a shot. Also, sometimes you can buy sizes online that aren't carried in stores. Maybe VS would have the size/color/style you want through their catalogue or something? But that might just be wishful thinking! Also, you may check out Fredricks (of Hollywood) they carry a pretty good variety of sizes, even some that aren't super common. And who knows...you may find some scandalous wardrobe for your honeymoon while you're at it!

                  Honestly, all that bra drama is exactly why I did the sewn-in cups thing too. Because finding the perfect bra for a wedding dress just seems to be extra difficult. . .'cause that's what brides need, more stuff to obsess/worry about!

                    Ann I STG the EXACT same thing happened to me, I was told I was a 36C so I got several bras and they never felt right so I just went and got a couple in a 34C then since I'm looking for a strapless is when they said I'm a 32C, I'm the exact same weight as I have been.

                      Why don't you try buying a boustier (SP)? Usually when you try dresses on, they make you try them on with them. They hold pretty good. I may get one... I have big boobies!
