I'll just tell them I am an old Hippy from the "bra burning" days. It is not far from wrong. |em23|

I prefer no bra but will force myself into one to venture out into public. |em28| You want to talk uncomfortable, try having psoriasis across your bra line and having to wear one. |em17|

hahaha...I was a negative A until my late 50's when I gained 40 lbs. Now they ACK touch my body ACK! I wear a bra, padded cus I'm irregular (you already know that!). If I don't wear a bra, then the sweat gathers and I hate that feeling. |em5| |em3|

Remember back in the 60's we were told if we could hold a pencil under them, then we had to wear a bra? Took me decades to be able to do that!!! |em24| |em24|

Patrice, I woulda found a way to go to work and elsewhere without a bra, if I had psoriasis there!! My elbows and feet have cleared up since winter; but still working on my palms.

I honestly didn't need a bra until I had kids and breastfed... so 60s/70s... I just fit right in with the fashion of the day.

That’s why I like cooler weather because you can wear a bulkier shirt or jacket and not need a bra. :wink:

At this time of year, I wear one. But, once it gets cooler, if I'm not going out among people, I don't normally wear one.

Something I've recently tried which is going OK, is a front-close, back brace bra. Those of us who are well-endowed might find the extra support for those muscles in the upper back handy, as I seem to. Usually wear one for more serious outdoor labor.

But I am "au naturel" as much as possible, just because.

That is why I wear a sports bra when I absolutely HAVE to wear a bra at all. I like the extra support.

I cannot stand underwire bras. And, I can't find the ones I like in the store. The elastic in mine is getting too stretched out. So, I am seriously thinking of just replacing it.

I just found my "favorite" bra about 3 months ago. It feels so good, I went and got 2 more. I came home and threw all of my old ones in the trash. This one feels great. It was actually on clearance at Walmart. It's made by Hanes. It is styled just like a feminine, lacy, sexy, bra.....but out of sports bra material. No wires. It even has a very tiny bit of lace in a couple of places. It has several sets of hooks on the back.
As for the sweat under the boobs.....just this week I got fed up with sweating and my boobs smelling like armpits. I sprayed Secret deoderant under my boobs before I put my bra on. It worked!
