I find that if a bra fits well an underwire can offer a lot of support and not be uncomfortable. I have been seeing lots of bras advertised without underwires showing support with all sized models. However, IRL I have never tried on a bra without one that offered the same support which for me adds comfort.

My go to is Wacoal Sports Bras. I get them on sale. They last a long time and donít ride up, straps donít fall down or dig in etc. They arenít lingerie but they fit well.

I have taken to wearing a cotton cami around the house under my blouses instead of a bra. It is comfortable and is respectable to open the door to anyone who comes calling. But out in public, I wear balli. My mother was very well endowed and swore by Lilly of france.

I love these bras, kinda pricey but worth every penny.

Good gosh, I hate wearing them and shopping for them now.



They dig into my shoulders SO MUCH, even when I let out the strap length as maximally as possible.



What I would like:

1. Strapless

2. Or, with straps that I can swap out for longer ones purchasable on eBay

AND (key!)

3. Front closing



Size: Not sure. Usually 42-44, and D-DD. However, this week I tried on a strapless (back closure) 44DD at Soma and it was way too tight. So maybe in a strapless, I would be a 46.



I liked the Soma bralettes that they had 3 years ago, but the newer ones have (you guessed it!) tighter straps again. I don't care about wire-free vs. underwire or materials, as long as they aren't horribly itchy. I don't want to be padded, but a light smoothing action is my favorite.



Does what I won't even exist???

Not yet. My girls are also uneven. The left one is larger than the right one. Even when I was younger and thinner.

I have considered breast reduction, but my back does not bother me.

I wear a Bali 0180 underwire. I have worn them for many years and wouldn't know what to do if they discontinued them. I usually have to order them from a kiosk at Kohls cause they never have my size in stock. They can also be found at Hanes outlet stores.
