After two years of surgeries and a TRAM reconstruction, I am finally able to get new bras.  It seems that there are none available that are wireless, do not provide full coverage, and that come in colors, have lace, etc.   I have radiation burn damage from 12:00 to 3:00 on one side that will be fixed eventually, and had a 9:00 lumpectomy on the other - bilat clevage disfigurement.

Does anyone know who makes the pretty ones I used to wear.  Who would think that size is almost non-existant?  They make them for 8 year olds now.  With all of the surgery that is done these days.

Hi Nancy......Try Dillard's or Macy's......I buy Wacoal brand bras from Dillard's and i saw they had 38 A and 38B bras......Also go online to have the size you are looking for too...In the meantime you can try using bra extenders....You can buy them at fabric stores..They just hook onto your existing bra strap in back........Good luck to you........I had a TRAM also and it took about a year and a half for me before I could get fitted.....They do a wonderful job fitting bras at Dillard's...They measure you really well and help you find what you need..........

I don't know if you're still looking, but I received an email today from VS announcing their clearance sale. I entered size 38A and got these results:

They're nice, don't you think?
