Your morning class starts in 15 minutes and you overslept. You quickly grab your trusty t-shirt bra from your drawer and put it on quickly – except it snaps and the only clasp left breaks. You look around for another one, but the ones left are either too small, too itchy, or too uncomfortable.
Does the above situation sound at all familiar? Are you tired of wearing sports bras every day? Do you want nice bras that last but don’t want to pay $65 for just one? Luckily for you, here’s a nice list of options that I’ve tried and liked – going from least expensive to most expensive (which still isn’t very expensive)!
Price: $8-$10, on sale they can be as little as $2.50

Brand(s): Bali (especially great for large chests), Maidenform, Gilligan & O’Malley
Price: $10-$20, could be less if on sale or if you are very small chested

Brand(s): This varies because Marshalls has many different brands. Look for brands you already like because they will be cheaper than normal.
