I'm a member of a group called Men Wear Bras (MWB)...there is often a lot of discussion on the proper fitting of a bra, and the value of a professional fitting...along with discussion of shops that are sissy/transgender friendly and are happy to do a proper fitting...

I've never visited this shop, but for those who are in Chicago area or plan to visit, it's called Bras Galore, and on their "about" page they specifically state that they are "crossdresser and transgender friendly"...

Perhaps some other members have had good experiences with brassiere fittings or buying and might like to share where they shop!?!?

Here's the link to their page...

It's been quite a few years but my first bra fitting was at a Belk's store.  I finally worked up the courage to tell one of the sales girls that I wasn't exactly sure what bra size I should be wearing and told her the bra size I usually wore.  She didn't hesitate to offer to measure me for my proper size.  I was in heaven as she was beauty queen gorgeous.  I bought two bras and paid almost double what I usually paid for my bras at WalMart. but I have to say the bras I purchased were much better quality than the less expensive WalMart bras.

Since then, I have also been measure or fitted for a bra at a JC Penney store during one of their bra fitting promotions.  The sales girl wasn't as eager as the Belk's sales girl was, but she didn't show any sign of disgust in fitting a guy for a bra.  I absolutely love doing girly things like this and being treated as just one of the girls - nail salons, lingerie departments, beauty shops, makeup counters or makeup stores like Merle Norman, etc.
I have had both good and not so good experiences buying bras. Generally speaking department stores have staff that don't care so much about making a sale and thus when they see a transvestite they can be rude and I have experienced this even though I have been with my Wife.

High end lingerie shops are much better, the owner needs your business and is very keen to have her staff be friendly and non judgemental to the transgendered community. I have had wonderful experiences buying bras and other lingerie in such shops. I have never been fitted for any of my bras but it has been offered. Unlike women who have trouble finding a bra that fits well my band size has never changed and cup size really isn't an issue.
Never having been fitted professionally, I imagine one would have to take whatever form(s) they might wear with different outfits. I do have a variety of sized bras: some that give me that wonderful feeling of uplift of my own breasts, others that take small or larger, heavier (home made) forms.
Since my original posting, I've learned that Torrid and Lane Bryant stores are also very accepting and willing to fit "girls like us". And yes, Gina...you'd certainly want to take along your forms for a fitting.

Best advice...call ahead to the store you plan to visit and ask about bra fittings for "males". Stores like Torrid, Lane Bryant, Bras Galore and others have learned that sissy/transgender money is just as good as GG money!

Calling ahead is excellent advice and not just for buying bras. Some shops offer less busy times for those who are not comfortable in public yet and some will even stay open after normal hours. It is the respectful thing to do, it gives them the opportunity to make things comfortable for them and you but just make sure you buy something.

Indeed Jennifer...if a sales associate takes the time and effort to fit you, and they have bras that work for you, it's always best to make a purchase...this will show the shop that we are serious customers and worthy of their time and effort.  And, even if they don't have any bras that appeal to you, you can always buy a pair of panties (or two)...

Of course, we can never have enough panties can we? Wink
There are lots of wonderful YouTube vids featuring bra reviews. I've been watching for a while now and have learned so much.

Very nice Gina...education is important, bras are not inexpensive so getting it right the first time is .  And remember...although you may wear a 38 B in a particular make/model of bra, another make/model in the same size may not fit the same.  I don't hesitate to take bras to the dressing room and try them before I buy...I absolutely love the feel of a well-fitted brassiere!
