I wonder what would happen  if I bought one of those and strapped it around my aching butt!  I'm not exactly into fashion anymore and it might just hold up those painful butt cheeks!  Really...I'll try just about anything!  LOL!

I would love a butt bra!!!!! Gravity is starting to take it's toll everywhere and the cheeks could stand being hiked up about an inch or so.

I hate how heavy the "big" ladies are. The underwire drives me nuts, especially when my stomach is acting up or just the plain old pain I get in my back/shoulders AND the the straps that dig into my shoulders from helping out the rest of the bra to keep them in a "normal" position. I don't think letting them hang natural with no support would scare the pa..jee..baz out of my boss.LOL! Or my co-employees may think I'm playing hacky-sack when I walk. Lol... ;-b

wow, those things are $64 a piece! O.o I buy sports bras from Wal-mart for 3 for $10... Sure they may not have all the bells and whistles, but they're good enough for me - mostly because they're about what I can afford. ^.^; (oh, I'm a 38D)

Butt bra - y'all are making me laugh!! I know what you mean about the shoulder straps and all the wire digging into you - the bra was always the first thing off of me when I got home! I had a reduction a few years ago and what a difference - did you know the wires in the center are actually supposed to touch your breast bone?! tongue   That was actually hard to get used to, I guess I never had one that fit before.

Bras don't bother me now unless my ribs are acting up - then nothing can squeeze me anywhere around the ribcage.

Lori - have you ever tried any of the sports bras without wire? I had a couple that were comfortable without digging, but they do tend to mash you.

Thanks for the laugh ladies - I needed that!

I love the 3/$10.00 Walmart sports bras for when I am on the treadmill. I got stuck on a treadmill in front of a mirror and couldn't believe how much I was still bouncing despite wearing a sports bra. That certainly explained the extra chest pain from the gym.

I was all set to spend money I don't have to buy something expensive to keep me from endangering those around me when someone suggested wearing two sports bras at once. I bought two different styles from Walmart (so the straps don't line up so much) and it works like a charm. Of course the lovely uniboob look is still there but at least I can afford it.

Upbeat - I didn't know they even made sports bras with wires, that's got to be uncomfortable.

Enell sports bras do not have underwires. In addition, they do not give you a uni boob look. Amazon sells the bras at a discount. I wear the Enell lite $79.00. thought about asking my son for them as Christmas presents. lol

Is the sizing correct? I mean can I get the same size I usually get and it will fit?

Dagger - I meant a sports bra instead of a wire bra - I think you are right, wire in a sports bra - not good! :)

My mom would to wear two bras to play tennis and it worked well for her. I used to have something called a frog bra to run. It was like 98% spandex, and it held them well enough i didn't give myself black eyes!

Have a good weekend!

Hope this isn't too personal...But, I  have to find a way to get new bras because my "ladies" have grown a whole new cup size...lol. I have been wearing a comfy sports bra. I am wondering if the other bras were causing pain because they were too small or if they were just the wrong type of bra. I am not rich...Actually, I am dirt poor. Are there any good comfy bras out there that aren't expensive? My mom said that she would try to buy me a few...so any advice on that would be great.

Sassy,
You can sometimes find great bras on the clearance rack at some of the more expensive department stores. I've gotten $60.00 bras for under $10.00 when they have half off the clearance price. Most stores have clearance racks. You have to work for your savings by digging around and they may not have the one you like in your size.

I only shop for bras when I have energy because I end up trying on more than 30. Once I start, I won't stop until I find a bunch that feel comfortable. I never buy a bra without trying it on even if I'm buying two of the same. Sometimes they aren't cut the same way and there is enough of a difference to make one uncomfortable. I wear them for a few minutes and move around a lot to see if I'm getting poked.

If you have a T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, or Ross Dress for Less, you can find great deals.

If you are unsure how your bra should fit, some stores have expert fitters either on staff or they come in every few months. If you've never had a professional fitting, it's worth it. You learn so much about how a bra should actually fit you. This service is free in my local stores and should be free in the chain department stores too. I always feel a little awkward when I don't buy the bras right then, but I've never been pressured. I thought they'd always recommend the most expensive bras but the last lady found some really comfy ones in my price range (around $15.00 on sale.)

Thanks Dagger. I generally shop at Walmart for my bras because they are cheap and I can usually find a few that fit me comfortably. I have never had a professional fitting. I went into Victoria Secret once, and they fit used a tape measure OVER my clothes, which I know is not the right way to do it.

Sassy,

Body by Victoria are comfy.  Those are my at home comfy time bras.  I have some that a little more fancy  that I bought at a vic secret sale, but don't like them as much as the body by victoria.

I also was measured at vic secret and the woman put me in a bra that was two inches two small in the back and one whole cup size smaller.  I put it on and asked, "are you sure, I can't breathe!"  I got the size I usually wear.  Maybe she was going for the boobs spilling over the bra cuz into the room look.

 

Donna, if you buy ennel online, how do you know the size?  Is the sizing the same as  your other bras?

Enell has their own sizing.  I bought my first one at Fleet Feet because it was the only place in my area that carries them in-store and I wanted to be able to try them on.  According to the Enell size chart I should wear a size 6.  I tried on sizes 5 through 7.  I bought the 6.  So yes, the sizes are accurate.  But they're not your normal bra size.
