I am taking this opportunity to replenish my bras.
Empriente's bras hover in the $200 range. A specialist told me that the workers must apprentice for 3 years before being permitted to make them, and that each bra is hand cut. Also, the materials tend to be better.
But all bras wear out. What is your price range that you are comfortable with? I won't go over $100.
I'm an odd size so the only b&m stores I go to are in NYC. The rest of the year it's shopping via the internet, which is still always iffy, as I am inconsistent in sizes even between brands.
