How do you wear your bras?

Do you like to wear them super tight so you know they are there and leave bra marks when you take them off, or have them at a looser more comfortable setting? Im asking this because i have realised all of my old bras are pretty super tight on me, but my new ones are so comfortable and no way as tight but i wonder if they will still support my bust the same?

I have read the whole thread with interest - I have NEVER felt comfy wearing a bra, they always seem to rub or gape (or both). I have been wearing a 38D. Now I know you all say no-one measures a 28, but I am a size 16-18, and I measure just under 38 under bust, and 45-46 over.

A few days ago I tried a 36E, band felt fine, but it rubbed between my boobs and under my arms, so I have now ordered some in a 36F from Simply Yours, should arrive tomorrow.

Will let you know .....!

Silverstar it's not that nobody is a 38 - more that most people who think they are, aren't! And we see a lot of threads where people post saying "I'm a size 8/10 with a 36/38 B bust" and that combination normally jumps up, waves and shouts "oy, wrong bra" to a few of us.

At the sizes you give, you could well be a 36 - I measure nearer to 32 than 30 but wear a 30. However, on a 36 I suspect an F is still too small - I would suggest you try an FF and a G as well.

Thanks SC - I have ordered some 36's, so we will see. May have to go up again from the F I have on order, but I am determind to get this right!

My dh just annoyed me; when I said that I had ordered new bras, and they are a F cup, he just looked at me and said 'no way are you THAT big!' <sigh> should get him to read this thread!!!

grrrrr argh lol. I am half tempted to set up a website where people who have been fitted properly can post anonymous pictures along with their bra size! Some myths need dispelling!

Liking that idea very much SC. You would have course have to lead the way by posting your own pic first grin

There are some great photos on here if you scroll down of good and bad fitting bras, some with sizes too.

Ha ha! Joking apart, I wish something like that existed. There are a few big-boob blogs around but they tend to be ~g+. I tried to find a photo of a true 30C for the other thread and I'll be buggered if I could.

There are so many myths - this for example and there was a story in the DailyWail the other day about the average bra size having gone up (based on the sizes Debenhams sell) and the comments underneath were infuriating, people ranting about how they were all fake boobs or because women are so fat. Grrrrrrr.

I think that's a great blog Dolly.

Sc that is a great idea. I wouldn't have known any better if I hadn't read the thread. Is there any one who would host it on their blog as a separate page? It's be handy to dispell some myths.
