    COMFORTABLE SPORT BRA

    Kate8941 posted:
    I have finally found a sport bra that I can comfortably wear around the house. In fact, I forget that I even have it on. I found them at Walmart, Fruit of the Loom, 3 to a package and only $10. My greatest pain with regular bras is in the shoulder area and these have nice wide straps. Being I am a "senior" I really needed some support during the day.....I got tired of them getting caught in my pants waist! Hahahaha

    So glad, to hear that you've found something good!

    I know people bash Walmart and for good reason, yet, always there when you need it?


    wishing I could find something like this, for a very large busted woman.

    the ones that I've seen are a joke, no support, etc.

    I know, they say, they are for women like me, but have yet to find one that works.

    I did forget to mention that I bought the sports bra one size larger than I normally wear. This prevents any pressure around the midriff. Of course, I look like a round blob in the front, but at this point, who cares?? Just wear a really loose shirt.

    wolfsong, I hear your story. "comfortable bra" is an oxymoron. I'm tired of the pain, fatigue, never feeling well.
    I am taking control of this...Nov 10 2010 I am going in for a breast reduction.
    Most insurances, if you are blessed enough to have insurance, will pay for it under medical necessity. I've talked to several women and not one is dissatisfied. There is very little pain, some restrictions for 4 wks or so, but then off to buy a bra that is professionally fit and I really don't care if I have to pay $50 or more for it.
    I can't control much about lupus/fibro/kidney disease, but what I can control, I AM!!!
    I hope that you can find some relief.
