Does anyone know where I can buy a racerback bra in 34hh or 36hh? I have brought those little circle gadgets that can pull ordinary straps into racer formation and it has really taken the strain off my slopey shoulders (I sound lovely, don't I?) However it is really difficult to put it on by yourself and I had hoped I would be dressing myself in my 30s.
I have seen the sports bras but really want a normal underwired bra to prevent the whole monoboob thing. Can anybody help?
I have a couple of bras that have straps you can cross over (ie they unhook at the back so you can hook them onto the opposite side) which would have a similar effect? I think they're Lejaby, from Figleaves. Search for multiway bra.
Thanks Hopefully and Unexpected. Bra def right size but just have very slopey narrow shoulders so straps slip off easily. I automatically roll my shoulders forward to try and counteract but that and the general weight of the damn things are playing havoc with my posture wrecking my neck and back.
Will look into the suggestions as new bras may reduce my osteo bill!
Bravissimo have brought out a multiway which goes up to an H but might be worth a shot - I can't vouch for it but here it is
There is also this strapless which comes with detachable straps - they may be able to be crossed over.
Also, have you tried the alana. It's not a crossover/racer back, but I'm a bit slopey of shoulder myself and this has never, ever fallen down. Don't know if it's strap thickness, level of elastic......but they stay put on me.
I'd say Bravissimo is worth a try - they will also know which others are worth trying on as there are definitely some which are far better from a staying put perspective. I find Panache really bad for going walkies on me. Admittedly though, it is also something that is much much worse if my back is even remotely too big. So possibly worth getting it double checked too. I have a Curvy Kate Tease Me which I love, but I should probably have gone down a back size and the straps are quite far apart anyway so they keep either sliding or folding over, it drives me crackers!
I think the straps on the Alana are further in than others which might be why they stay put.
They also have this which might be easier to attach yourself than the circles.
