Q. I saw you on The View the other day. I'm having a hard time finding bras to fit me right. I order out of Blair's Book but I'm still not happy. I'm on the heavy side and I take a 48 DD but my bras are tight around the middle plus it's extremely hard for me to turn them around after a shower. I have crippling arthritis with deterioration of the bones. I would rather have a bra with a front closure because my hands cramp and my fingers stiffen up as well. Can you suggest a store here in St. Louis, Missouri where I can get measured? I went to JCPenny's to get fitted but the sales lady said I didn't take a double just a D. I'm not sure I believe that. I don't like under wire so if there is a brand that will fit me without one I'd be very happy.

A. I suggest you try the Playtex 18 Hour Style 4695 Front Close with Flex Back, which is wire free, has a front close with easy-to-close hooks and eyes, and comes in a 48DD. You can go to Macy's for a fitting, and they should have the product there or they can order it if they don't. Alternatively, you can order it from onehanesplace.com. Unfortunately, it only comes in white in that size (just one band size down, a 46DD, comes in Black, or up to a 44DD also comes in Beige. Hope this helps!
