Bras, bras, bras. They way we put them on is almost as different as the styles available.

I'm curious as to what brands work best for everyone. Some just don't seem to provide enough support.

I have had so much trouble finding the bra that fulfils all my needs, I'm at the point of not wearing the garment. In fact, my chiropractor has told me not to. I wear a 38 or 40 DD, so I don't think going without is an option. But I have a damaged disc in the same spot that a too tight bra pinches a nerve. Wearing a too large bra leads to all the other problems we know about. I don't know how to get support without a tight fit around, so I'm also curious about the styles that work the best.

have you considered a long bra? They provide support but use a longer body to help so it doesn't pinch.

It's one of those time when I have to say "Why didn't I think of that?" I'll give it a try. My back and I thank you.

I hear you, GrannyH! Going without is not an option, but I dearly wish it was. I wear 38 H. But at this point in my life (age 55) I've given up the under wires. So my "girls" don't point up to the sun anymore, oh well. I'd like to know who decided they were supposed to in the first place?

The best time of my day is when I get to take the darn thing off. How do I spell relief? NO BRA!

I am 60 now, and don't require that the girls stand at attention; I just want to keep them out of my waist band. I just got back from the chiropractor - the issue has not changed. I've got to try that other bra or go without.

To return to the original topic. I must hook in the front then twist the bra around cause I can't reach around without hurting myself.

I have been wanting a boob job for a few years now. I don't want implants, just to raise them back up - but I always think of the song from "lil' Abner"

Hello I have a few clients that feel the same way as you. I suggest you get professional bra fitting from a certified bra fitter. My suggestion would be to go to Nordstrom or Dillards to be properly fitted by someone that is certified and educated. From personal experience and experience through my clients, a proper fitting bra is ESSENTIAL! ..if these stores do not have your correct size, try a few places online like. www.Figleaves.com and www.BiggerBras.com. I hope this helps and good luck. Nikki Curry- Plus Size Coach Image Consultant www.MindBodyImage.com
