True story, coming down the escalater w/ my wife in a large department store, we encountered a sign, "Ladie's undergarments, half off". I opined as how I'd like to see that. She hit me upside my head.

I know its probably an obvious thing to say - but you have to get the right size.

One day we were in Bakewell and we visited the corsetierre's shop there. Its a lingerie shop but the lady seemed to have some expertise.

My wife wanted a bra and had decided to treat herself to a really nice expensive one. She told the lady behind the counter her size and she said, no you're not!

apparently she'd been buying the wrong size for years, because the new one was more comfortable.

Obviously a tricky business!

Not sure about the logistics of wearing a bra as I am not a woman but I do feel that undoing and removing one that fits well, that feels good, that holds such joy is wonderful. I do hate to see women who wear such ill fitting bras that they appear to have 'overlaps'....is that just me or do other men feel the same?

Kat, thanks for "lifting up" this subject on behalf of "boobs everywhere." This thread has inspired a new "uplift" of creativity for me-- I have been cleaning out a few old "breakfronts," happy to find t-shirts of various sizes and styles that used to fit me once, long ago.

What I've found is that any tight sleeveless tee or tank can be slit in front, neck to hem, resulting in long, stretchy ties to knot snugly like a Shipwrecked Damsel's emergency bra. NO SEWING NEEDED. I now have a men's dago T, a ladies' nylon cami with adjustable ribbon straps, a vee-neck T, and a ribbed tank T-- all cut as described to try out. That will give me an idea how small is tight enough what cut is best suited for modification, and then I'm hitting the Dollar Store to stock up on "temp" bras while I keep looking for my Rescued Damsel model! The ribbed binding seems essential to long-term use and comfort.

These are easy to put on and fasten, and once untied for laundering there's no worry that any sweat, germs, fungus, or soap residue will be left caught in damp fabric folds. ALL COTTON, of course.

Try it, you'll like it. You know where to look-- the back of the closet, under the bed, or snarled in overstuffed dresser drawers-- we ALL have a stash of potential underware somewhere!

If cotton is what you need against the skin, try the "Everlast" underwire. Without the wires, of course. The elastic at the bottom edge is contained in a tube of cotton fabric. The style I like best is actually a pullover, all cotton knit, and comes in black, white, or grey. I don't know which side of the ocean you're on, but in the US, Shopko carries them, and I think Target does, too.

The other day I was out shopping for bras to wear around the house. I no longer like to go braless - it's just more comfortable with a little support. I found these Haynes "Tank style" bras that look kind of like a tank top that ends right at your ribcage with some elastic and there is a kind of "Shelf bra" built in. Sort of like a sports bra but not as constricting. Works great.

Kat, thanks for starting this! I've gotten several good hints I'll be sure to follow up.

I have a drawer full of bras that seemed comfortable enough in the store, but that turn out to be pretty awful by the end of a work day. Most of them end up chafing under the arms -- I HATE getting those red rubbed marks because the bras turn out to be cut too high under the arms. I never seem to be able to spot that in the store.

It never occurred to me to remove the underwires! Duh! (Knocking self on side of head...) I'll try it! If I still have any of those, of course -- haven't bought any with underwires for years.

The best brand I have found that is reasonably widely available and reaonably priced is "Barely There," though I couldn't find a website showing the style I've found best (all stretchy nylon -- I'd love cotton but they don't seem to make it that way -- with very few seams, just a few little tucks in the middle, fairly wide straps and a band of thicker stretch nylon around the bottom, no fasteners -- goes on over the head, or step into it and pull it up). God, I hope they haven't discontinued it. Story of my life: I find something that works for me or that I like and they discontinue it. They don't seem to make "plus sizes" though -- I'm right at the top of their size range, and if I get any fatter I'm in trouble. Another one I found that's pretty good is called "Bra-llelujah" by "Spanx" (who thinks up these names?).

I used to buy a style that fastened in front, and loved that feature -- SO much easier to put on! -- but haven't been able to find satisfactory ones lately. But it's always possible to do up the fasteners in front before putting the straps on, then turn it around so the fasteners are in back where they belong, and put your arms through the straps.

Good luck, Kat -- I hope you find something that works for you!

Nancy

Kat--

The most comfortable bra I own (though I only ever wear it if my mom is coming to visit, as I'll never hear the end of it if I don't) came from a store that specializes in helping women who have had mastectomies. They're built more for comfort than style, and they also have the option of adding, ahem, inserts. :)

Unfortunately, my mother has had breast cancer twice, and the second time she basically said "Screw this, take it all away, I don't ever want to go through this again." Opting against reconstructive surgery (thank all the gods), she decided to go the padded bra route. When we went to the store to get the bra, she said, "Oh, Molly, let me buy you one--you'd look so good!" I knew that refusing would be like swimming upstream against Niagara, so I agreed. It can be fun at Halloween, though--my friends get to see me go from Twiggy to Dolly P. in about three minutes (she insisted on buying the inserts as well, though I don't wear them).

Anyway, you might check them out. I can't remember what the store was called.

The secret is to have someone in a specialist shop or department in a larger store measure you. I wear a bra only for dancing and I was so uncomfortable in anything I tried until I was measured. And remember a 38B in Marks and Spencer will fit differently from a 38B in BHS so buy in the store where you were measured. A specialist store may well be able to advise for your particular situation.

Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestion, leneeia, but allergy to anything but cotton gives me no choice. I always wash everything, the first time, in vinegar to remove the "sizing," then several good washes after that, with other loads of laundry to save on water. All of my clothing is cotton and, when I buy the good quality, organically grown cotton clothing, it lasts for years. I can also wear hemp. I had a couple of t-shirts of hemp years ago and though they'd never wear out!

Thanks for the other links and comments, folks!

Please rethink your commitment to cotton. Cotton is unyielding and doesn't last. It is not a good material for bras.

Some people think cotton is more "natural" than modern elastic materials. By the time cotton is bleached and finished, it's not natural anymore.

As a size 40F - yes folks F - I commiserate, but can't offer any help with brands.

However I have resorted to making my own in the past - before I found a brand which fitted fairly well.

It is not that difficult if you have a stock of old bras to raid for the strap adjusters - it is not a good idea to make the straps without adjustment, and the height of the sides is important too, it should be high enough to hold things in place, but too high at the front of the band and it cuts in.

I think that it would be easier to get a fit with a back fastening bra - they seem to be the most common, but as that is not acceptable, either get one which would be easy to alter, or resort to making your own.

Metchosin, just a little comic relief, though the VS bras are the ones I like and the Italian photos are very well done, and the goofy lingerie scuffle needed some kind of lead in. Perhaps it all provided a distraction for Gargoyle.

You can search on "post surgery bra" and find a number of sites that might have something useful. You didn't go for a mastectomy, but recognizing the tenderness of the area, perhaps the materials of some of those bras should be considered.

Here is one and another one. This place has a number of attractive bras, and the last entry is for post-surgery.

I don't know where you live and what the availability of these might be, but you might also look into equestrian bras. They have to be comfortable because you don't want to be riding with straps biting your arms off, and I believe that at least some of them are front-fastening. I used to wear an athletic bra that was no actually a riding bra but was very similar and it was very comfortable since it had wide straps and soft material, but held things in place.

I don't mind bras, myself, as long as they're the soft, lace-less, adjustable kind. I've learned that you can't play the guitar with underwires unless you want to hurt yourself.

Thanks, everyone! Great links and suggestions. I'll take some time to look them over in depth and, yes, probably go get a professional fitting, too.

It's not the scar so much as the deep tissue which has mended but every once in a while lets me know it's been sliced and stitched. BUT, I am not complaining! The new valve is working so well, I am off the oxygen a good share of the time, now, AND walking at least a couple of miles a day.

Interesting links SRS, possibly intended to titilate the male posters here, but hardly intended to keep one abreast of the problem at hand. LOL

kat, I agree with previous suggestions to go get fitted at an exclusive or high end store that specializes in larger sizes. Its worth the extra bucks and you will be amazed.

I recently went with my eldest daughter who required new undergarments as maid of honour at her sister's wedding.

She's built like a mac truck, naturally overly endowed by some conventional standards, has exremely sensitive skin (this was a baby who, when she was born even in the hospital, had to be specially attired with cloth diapers, because of an allergic reaction to disposable ones) and she loves sexy things.

I was not looking forward to the trip, because from previous experience, when she was younger, any such outings were usually pretty tense as her frustration levels started rising and as "Mom", I quite often took a lot of the heat.

There were tears this time too, but it was of absolute joy and relief, she couldn't believe what she had been missing all these years.

Hiya Kat!

   I'm partial to the Just My Size bras and lately, Champion makes a sports bra, no tag and that is ultra comfortable...not the usual sports bra where you are squeeze so tightly that you wonder where the heck your breasts went...this one offers decent, flexible support and it goes for about $12.00. Of course, this is NOT a front closure...but it does go on fairly easily and I'm thinking because it is soft cotton without all the lace and trim, it might not be too uncomfortable on your scar. If you decide to go the catalog route, Lane Bryant and Romans have plenty. I'd steer clear of the Leading Lady bras as they have a funky rubber smell to them that never does go away. Anyway, those kinds of catalogs offer the plus sizes in all kinds of styles....including a more "leisure" bra that is meant to be really comfortable...although lacking in support...but it's better than nothing (ok...well, not really...but you know what I mean....don't you?....it's not the white, scratchy, super industrial over the shoulder boulder holder type!!!!)

Good luck!!!

I hate bras too! The most comfortable bra I have found is the Elita plus (slip on) but you might also try the Grenier (back clasps).

Now for a funny granny story:

My mom who was fighting the very hot, Arizona summers liked to walk around with a face cloth under each breast. She claimed that the cloth absorbed the sweat and cut down on the friction between her breasts and her ribs. I had to try it and guess what! She was right. Instant relief.

Only try this if nobody else is around. Its definitely not sexy!

I've been ripping the wires out of underwire bras for years. The style is fairly supportive even without the wires, and MUCH more comfortable.

As for the scars, you might consider a longline style. There is less pressure right below the breast, and you might actually find it supports the scarred area.

I've had good luck over the years with Warner styles. Also, I have a front closure longline from Exquisite Form called the Ful-ly bra #7530. Its very supportive of the upper back, and the torso in general.

Decent Exposures might fit the bill for you, all-cotton or other options, lots of sizes, and custom sizing available, as well. Pull-over, or front-opening.

I got two bras from them when I needed something for breast feeding my son (that is to say, to hold the leak pads, between nursing sessions!), otherwise I'd do without, if I had my choice. I still use those bras, 10 years later, as a hot-weather undershirt under a couple of jumpers. (I removed the little ring of fabric that makes the "cups".) They're comfy! Not like the bras I've been wearing lately since I've taken to working full-time in the world and feel a need for some more modesty. I'm small and I can't get normal bra straps to stay up. (I know, I need T-backs, but they're hard to find in something lightweight.)

But even with those nice folks at Decent Exposures, what is the deal with bra prices??? It's ridiculous.

And can I confess, after years (44) of wearing no or minimal bras, recently I bought a contemporary underwire+foam (nothing fancy) bra. I've yet to use it. When try it under something and I look in the mirror, I think, "who's boobs are those? they're not where they usually are, and I think someone cut off the nipples!" It's a very strange sensation. I work on a university campus and can see that smooth and round is the fashion, but I think that I agree with Guest 5:12. I suppose most of them make up for it by exposing cleavage and lots of other skin. (Plenty of opportunity to show skin in our climate.)
