Different sort of bra intervention

Looking for advice...

I want to give up wearing traditional bras and use stretchy crop top types instead. However I am large of nork (32HH). Is it possible? Can anyone recommend something?

In my experience no (I'm 36G). The closest thing to a crop top I can wear comfortably is a shockabsorber sports bra.

Bravissimo have started selling sleep bras that look comfy. However, being large in the boob department myself, I can't imagine not wearing underwired bras - they'd be round my knees!

Falke Sports Bra Top Verstatility Maximum Support (the one with the zip front). Am 34GG. They are great. My massage therapist has commented that since I started wearing them that she no longer has a lot of tension to deal with between my shoulder blades and along my shoulders. Instead, she notices that my back muscles are just getting stronger, especially at my lower back/waist level.

I no longer get tension headaches, my posture has improved and no red marks round rib cage or on shoulders- it had to be one or the other with underwire bras. Shape of boobs looks better with bra off now too.

If you don't mind me asking Chortled what size did you go for (I'm 34 as well) ? I googled the bra but they seem to be in Small, medium, large etc so not sure how that works when you're FF

There's an XL size too. They usually have it on Amazon.
