Men don't wear bras

<< < (26/27) > >>

For me, I stay out of them as long as possible.  If I can go a week or 2 and never wear one,I'm happy.  I have breast canver in my family, so I try to stay away from bras and aluminum deodorant as much as possible.  I make my own deo..  Its easy.  I did have a professional fitting once.  I barely fit into a c cup, there is a lot of room left over as I'm not very busty.  The lady fitting me said I should be in a D cup. I tried one on, giving her the benefit of the doubt.  My SIL and I were rolling laughing when I did, a whole roll of TP coulda fit in there with me.    Needless to say, from then on iI try them before I buy them and go with what's comfortable.  When I am comfy,  hubby says   I glow and we both like that:-). My advice?  Try on several different types/styles/sizes, and go with what works for you.  Some bras look better in certain clothes than others, don't be afraid to take that special dress with you  to try  on bras for the perfect look. Everyone is different and has different likes.  Dare to be you.

Thank you!  It was because of this thread that I gave the Genie Bra a try.  I am currently going their radiation for breast cancer and I can wear this bra!!  My "regular" bras actually hurt at this point.  I am a "well endowed" woman, and usually like an under wire.  I love the idea of sports bras, but um....the "girls no fit!"  The modesty pad in the Genie bra is a God send......it's a big part of the reason this bra is working.  Comfy enough that I don't even feel like it's on!!!

Um, so I have to jump on the Victoria's Secret bandwagon. The prices and overall atmosphere of the store were always so...off-putting to me. But after going there I may just never bother with anywhere else again. The employees are incredibly helpful and not pushy at all. Yes, they're expensive, but I have a properly-fitting bra for the first time in, well, ever. They did feel a bit tight at first, but I think that was more just me being used to the looser sizes I had been wearing for so long. I have a hard time finding the right band size now as I went down a size and the only ones that most stores seem to carry in my size are directed at teens. While the prices on those are great, I'm not a fan of neon polka dots, nor the stupid "crossover" style that seems so popular lately (the little hook in the back drastically reduces the amount of strap adjustment, which sucks when you have narrow shoulders).

The irony here is, it was at the behest of the BF that I should get some different sized bras. He was the one that noticed my old bras looked off...though he probably spends more time looking at them than I do ;)

I just don't know why I am here at the end of this thread...I just could not look away    :o
But I am sure that a double dust mask or 550 survival bra ,would be a great item...  :knitting:

If McGyver had one available ,his shows would only last 15 minutes and Gilligan would have made it off the
island 'cause the professor would have had material to patch the SS Minnow and  the whole
world as we know it would be different...the possibilities just won't stop.....

This thread deserves a video...OH ,I have one...

OK ,look it up,YOU TUBE,  Rodney Carrington "Show Them to Me"
