Now, you may not have all the cash in the world, or you may not have any space in your life for more pretty smalls, in which case it's time to cull the shopping bag.
In the event that there's nothing in your faves that even vaguely fits your budget, your job is to find something that approximates your desired object. If you want this Agent Provocateur, maybe this Passionata will fill the same niche. There's not a massive difference in price between these bras. I mean, neither is cheap, but you might find the Passionata on sale for a very good price. Regularly well-priced online brands include Cleo, Curvy Kate, Gossard, Midnight Grace, Lepel, Figleaves brand and, by degrees, just about anything on sale.
Before closing the deal, I urge you to check out reader reviews associated with the online item. Or to search out additional reviews on lingerie blogs. These reviews may show you real people wearing the bras (those whose shapes you can relate to) who speak insightfully and honestly about the fit and quality of the bra in question. Bratabase might also be of interest to you. I can't really get into the site (it's a database in the midst of being populated) but some people swear by it.
Hopefully, your needs will align with your budget for this exercise, at which point you might want to see if you can save a little extra, just cuz.
And to assist you with this, I'm thrilled to say that the good peeps at LCL (Large Cup Lingerie) have offered to provide my fabulous readers with an additional 20% off all merchandise between now and Oct. 31! Just type KLINE into the discount code field. This is super useful because - between the free shipping you always receive from LCL, and this extra 20% discount - you're going to be able to save some serious cash! (FYI, LCL sells bras starting at a 28D and going up to 38HH / 40G. That's a pretty sizable span.)
Or how about this awesome, sassy (but also daily wearable) bra:

This brings me to my next point: I never buy online without seeking out a promo code, just like the one above. I use a variety of search terms i.e. promo code (insert name of shop), and I am frequently enough rewarded by an exciting discount.
Since I don't need to buy at any given moment, I can afford to wait for a good deal to come my way. And when it does, I POUNCE. Which is just what I did a few days ago. Wish I'd waited for this sale, in truth :-)
In closing, I speak to so many women who tell me how they'd be buying fabulous, perfectly-fitted bras like hot cakes, if only they weren't so pricey. I truly hope these women will avail themselves of this opportunity. And then comment or write about it!!
Next up: The gory details of my own online shopping trip.
