Cotton T-shirt bra with lace trim

I have 4 old Cacique bras that I purchased a few years ago that have been absolutely great. I felt like this was a brand that was going to give me great quality and durability based on that experience.
However, when I went into the store and tried on my regular band size, I could barely even get it hooked in the back on the largest setting. It was very tight and not at all properly fitting. I tried on quite a few Cacique bras in different styles and found them all to have this problem... not to mention that my choices were limited as most of the bras in the store were push-ups and contained a lot of extra padding that I as an already DD-sized woman do not need or want. So then I went up a band size and tried that on and it fit perfectly in the dressing room, so I bought that one. The overall style and color were nice, but I didn't love it because there was an unnecessary 5th hook on this size that is not there on my usual size bands that made it difficult to close the bra.
Within the first day of wearing it, the band had stretched out so far that even moving it to the smallest setting left it riding up my back and caused bunching at the edges of the cups because the band was in the wrong place. It shrinks back down when I wash it so that it fits when I first put it on, and by the end of the day it always ends up stretched out and traveling upwards on my back.
Since I have a much larger than average chest I have depended on Lane Bryant for quality supportive bras for years, but if this is the quality I'm going to get now, I see no reason to spend between $30 and $50 on a "good" bra and will go back to shopping for these at less expensive department stores.

Well one complaint, when you cross the straps in the back for use with a t back shirt...it's a little hard to get on and off. Otherwise lovely bra and very pretty and simple. Mid comfort level because all bras are uncomfortable to me...
