I don’t have the hardest time finding my size(34-36C) but I used to have a hard time finding cheap bra’s. The best advice I can give is to shop around. My current favourite bra cost $5 CAN on sale at wal-mart. I found it after giving up on finding anything under $20 at the mall. Oh and putting them in the washer is fine-just avoid the dryer and instead hang it on the back of a door to dry.
