Wow! If I'd ever spent that much on a bra I'd wear it on the outside of my clothes.

My experiences so far about what is cheaper in the UK:

1. Food
2. Used cars (who would have thought I'd also miss the MOT to filter out some of the junk?)
3. Food
4. Income taxes
5. Food

$2.99 unless on sale is pretty much the price. (They are on sale alot, until I specifically want one of course) and to add, I am referring to English cucumbers not the horrible field ones

I don't really see those others ones here. Unless I just don't notice them anymore!
I'll send you some English ones tomorrow 😉

$1.50 to 1.99 at the mo, or 4 for $5. I don't buy them in the winter.

Same here for a decent one. My daughter can wear the $10 Kmart ones, but unfortunately I've been "blessed" with massive knockers.

When you're an E/F a good bra is a must. Unfortunately decent support comes with a price tag to match.
