Please remember that finding the right size for you is not an exact science, you must try each bra on in order to get a feel for what is comfortable. Be prepared to stay for some time.

The best place would be a speciality shop that sells women's foundation garments.   
If it is a busy place the best times would be at the start of the business day or at the end of it.  At such times you would have the fitter and the dressing rooms to yourself.

This is an absolute MUST! If you're looking for a bra that you'll  usually be wearing 16-18 hours at a time, you'll want it to be comfortable. It will get easier after a few formal fittings. You'll begin to learn which brands and models suit your style and your shape and which ones you'll steer clear of. But be prepared when starting out to spend at least a couple of hours trying on bras till you find a few that do the job you want them to do. Also have an idea of what you need them to do. I recommend having at least 3 every day bras along with a couple of sports bras in different colors.

This is an absolute must, the garment you put on in the morning might not be the same one you take off in the evening. You wouldn't wear a suite and tie to garden in nor would you wear a swim suit to a formal dinner. The type, style and color of bra that you may wear at any given time will be dependent on what you are planning to do.

Fine what is appropriate and comfortable for you which also reflects your lifestyle and activities.

Absolutely agree! You must have a few for day wear plus some sports bras for other times. I wear a sports bra at times during the day and in certain circumstances, while at other times I wear, and prefer, an underwire support bra. I wear a bra at night to keep things where they belong. The point is, you cannot just have one or two or three bras but you need a number for various times and circumstances. Besides, what are you going to wear when you need to wash your bras and you do not have one that is clean? Be well all!

Setting up a bra fitting with someone I read about in the local weekly. "The bra chick" on Fb. She's got over 20 years experience fitting bras and seems very understanding. 
Went shopping today with the wife and kid at a few places that were open on Easter. Got a new sports bra at old navy on sale. Size 2x. It fits perfect around the band and is high support/compression, so even though the cups are not filled, it doesn't look too loose alone and looks fine under a shirt. I also got some yoga pants and active wear tops that look good on me. I'm in another weight loss challenge trying to lose about another 20lbs by June 11th... Motivation! I've lost about 5lbs and 3 inches around my belly button in about 2 weeks. I've upped my yoga game and added light cardio. Since mid January I've lost 21lbs and 9" around the belly button. I'm about 41" band and 46-ish around nipples. (as of March 11th, will measure again tomorrow).  Seems my breasts are growing, but it could be pec muscles growing and the rest of me getting slimmer, with my actual breasts staying about the same size. Not sure. Women's tank tops and t's are fitting better than men's now though.

Be advised that while shedding the extra weight is always a good idea you may not loose anything in your breasts. In fact you might actually appear bigger, this is because the body is predisposed to keeping the Aptos fat over normal body fat so unless you drop below 5% body fat you are not going to loose any physical size in your breasts.

Over the years, I have learned that most of the clothing that fits me best, comes from the ladies side of the department store. I was just at Lane Bryant yesterday and picked up a couple of new bras  (36G ). Prior to a recent weight loss, I was wearing a 38E/38F. I didn't lose any bust measurement, only underbust. I would definitely track my measurements with your weight loss. I ended up appearing more busty than before. But that's ok, I'm more healthy and feel better as a result.
