I've always felt like bras feel like a cage around my chest. But my boobs are too big to go without. If only they were weightless. Actually, it feels good in a swimming pool because then they just float weightlessly. Too bad gravity wins out on dry land. I used to wear the wrong size bra until I went to the lingerie section of a department store in Paris while on vacation. The language barrier wasn't an issue. I just asked the clerk for the size I had been wearing, but she just glanced at me (fully clothed) and told me the size that might fit better and she was right! I was impressed. The size tag had the European size as well as the American size on it. Although I wear the correct size, they still feel confining. I don't care if my nipples get hard and show, in fact, I like it. All I care about is taking a load off my shoulders. Underwire bras give me some cleavage, but wireless don't for me, but underwires are very uncomfortable for me, so I only bother with those if I'm dressing up. At home, I usually wear tight camisoles with a built-in shelf bra. It does the job for those with big busts, but is still somewhat more liberating and is very versatile. I even tend to sleep in them.

Nope. Only if they don't fit. In fact I sleep with a sports bra so I can give myself a squeeze.

sounds to me that you need to get a professional fitting. You may be wearing the wrong size and not even know it.

TRUE...one is always bigger than the other so yes, you do have to get fitted

Yep every woman has uneven breasts if they're natural. Heck I bet you anything that even fake ones can be uneven.

the fake ones are usually even and identical ...so the bras fit better...usually the right side is larger than the left

For me it's the opposite. My left one is a little bigger than my right one. But you know what? I wouldn't change them unless I had a mastectomy. I love them so much I give em a squeeze.
