Please help me! I had my baby nearly 8 months ago and from the moment I got pregnant I have found almost all bras uncomfortable. I hoped it was just a pregnancy thing but no.
I now can't abide underwiring and all the wireless bras I have, despite being more comfortable than wired, still seem to rub around the underarm area.
I have tried on so many bras that I feel like I'm going insane. The latest was Wonderbra's wire-free bra and despite being quite a nice fit had slightly rough material on the band which I could tell would start to rub.
I'm looking for a t-shirt style bra that's slightly padded but most importantly is made of incredibly soft fabric and wire-free. I'm hoping someone out there has experienced a similar sudden aversion to the brassiere and can recommend something!
Since having DCs, the only bras that give me comfort and good shape are those from Triumph. I know it's a bit of an old fashioned brand but there are some really nice styles (alongside the old lady stuff) and they never let me down. I try other brands from time to time but keep coming back to Triumph
After years of uncomfortable bras, I now have several of these Charnos Everyday Bras. It is underworld, but I find it very comfy. They also do a non-wired version non wired Charnos bra, although I have never tried it.
Have you been to a proper lingerie store to be fitted. That makes a huge difference!
Primark!! For 5 quid they have a new none wired lightly padded bra. I bought one yesterday and it's like my boobs are wearing a cloud. Not the Bralett Lacey kind, it's a tshirt kind. I'm goi back today to buy 3 more
Triumph Doreen, I wear them secretly. If I was ever taken to A&E in an ambulance I'd be cutting it off on the way and throwing it out the window so as not to be caught wearing it but by God it's comfy. I will wear one forever - except on dates
