When you're an E/F a good bra is a must. Unfortunately decent support comes with a price tag to match.
I have similar issues but surprisingly I bought some in Walmart recently for $17. They seem to fit nicely! Usually I wouldn't even consider bras there.

I bought one at Walmart in Buffalo that I like when we were over last year . Kicking myself for not buying a few since it was about $15.

How did this get to be about bras? Can we get back to the matters in hands?

Great to see a few other horsey folks on here! Several of you have said horses are cheaper in Canada - is this true (I hope so!)? From what I've seen on the Internet horses seem pretty pricey but I'm hoping it's not a real reflection of the market! We're moving to BC in August- is it worth shipping rugs and tack out, and should I stock up on boots and jodhpurs to bring over or buy new in Canada?

I don't think horses themselves are cheaper in Canada. They cost from $750 for a newly retired racehorse upwards, once you get into the tens of thousands then they may be purchased from Europe anyway. What I think is cheaper is board, not at an A circuit barn, but in general.

I suspect tack is cheaper, that should be easy to compare Horseware Ireland and Shires products are sold here and there, both are premium brands here, blankets of similar quality made locally are offered at a little over half the price. Quality tack brands probably unfamiliar to you include Brubachers and Ger-Ryan.

For your browsing and comparing pleasure, these are tack shops with aggressive pricing, not in BC admittedly:

Yeah i have to say i did enjoy Halifax when i was there. Feels more like a big town than a city, way more friendly than your average big city. The upper deck is great for live bands!

Although I did go to a dodgy nightclub in Halifax - it was called Reflections I think....lets just say i was glad my girlfriend was accompanying me! lol It seemed it was a gay/mixed club, but there were quite some characters in there to put it mildly! One of them to took quite a shine to me..... : we didnt stay too long after that.

As for whats cheaper in UK than Canada.......Canadian Cheddar!! unbelievable really....I bought a block of Canadian cheddar in Sainsburys that was actually produced in Campbellford Ontario - just down the road from where i live, and i found it 3500miles away in the UK waaay cheaper than i can buy it here! Crazy!!!
