My back hurts so bad I'm usually in tears by the time I can take it off! My pain is across my back where the bra band is & all of the sports bras or shelf bras built in to tshirts hurt as bad as bras, so the only thing I can do is wear a bra with a band that is too big, or on a bad day I just go without. At home I never wear one, & I'm a D cup, but it's not worth the pain. I tend to wear oversized shirts & I'm 69 yrs. old so I figure what the heck, I'll probably never see those critics I see again!
