    I'm having problem posting on this website. User name is MozzGoggs. I meant to add that my bra size is 40DD so the Genie bras and camies work find for me even though I'm well endowed. Also wanted to say the gluten elimination helped be reduce my pain medicine about 1/3 to 1/2. I've had fibro since before Social Security recognized it as a legal reason to allow disability.

    Also, I've tried Lyrica and Savella and not only did they not work, but I had severe side effects. I've also read that Cymbalta has many problems. Some folks cannot eliminate it once they begin because of the problems associated in withdrawal from the medicine.

    MozzGoggs, I've been on all three of the medications. Savella has been the most helpful. I currently stopped taking it in an effort to see if I could live without it. I'm doing pretty well. It's only been a month, but the pain is tolerable. I have had to move to soft bras or sports bras, but I've gained a lot of weight since this disease has reared it's ugly head and I'm down to a size 16 now. I was a 22. Finding bras was horrible. I still prefer to go braless, but being well endowed doesn't allow for that.

    I would agree about the sport bras being the best. The 100% cotton ones you can get at your local department store I find give the most comfort and support. Not sure where you live but I found them at both Macy's and Kohls. Some days the regular bra straps are just to much.
