I don't hate them but there was a short time in my 30's when I did go braless. My boobalas have always been small to medium and at the time my dress size was 4. Wearing one at home would be annoying but since the braless phase, I always wear one away from home. My posture is always very correct and it just doesn't feel that way without the bra holding those things in a firm position.

A bodacious woman like that comfortable in her own skin wearing the right sized bra is uncommon and a dream indeed. Most of the times they get told they are fat and just have to have a reduction in order to be acceptable in society. Just not being able to find 36J bras on any rack in most stores makes most women that size hate bras because they are almost always wearing the wrong size.

You women should be thankful! Having big breasts and wearing beautiful bras and panties is a crossdresser's dream come true! Many crossdressers wish they had natural boobs!

Uh... I LOVE lacy, sexy bras! I have wayy too many though (my secret guilty pleasure). Could go a couple weeks without repeat wearing one. Although I admit push ups get uncomfortable, thankfully I don't wear a push up the majority of the time.

I agree with other posters who say you should get fitted again. Keep in mind though, Victoria Secret does the WORST fittings and their bra sizes actually tend to run small.

Try a fitting at Nordstroms, they tend to be the most accurate. Just like shoes, you'll just have to try them on Although I know VS has the Incredible bra that is supposed to fit exactly right, so it doesn't have any adjusting straps, etc. < if you're looking at that I'd advice going down a band size such as getting a 32 instead of 34.

Or maybe it's the underwire that bothers you... Test one out at those places like target where they have absolutely no padding or underwire, just white simple cheap bras.

Only when I was younger and dating. Trying to remove a women's bra in the dark & crowded confines of a car when drunk was a real PITA.

You could try sports bras if you haven't done so already.

Ah, so true. A friend of mine was fitted at two upscales stores and she was a 32b. Vicki's fitted her as a 34D. So she tried on a 34D...way too big. Ended up buying a 34C that fit tightly, but still her other bras are 32b and fit perfectly.

I won my wife over by removing her bra in the car, under a sweatshirt, in the dark, with one hand. She said she only heard of guys who could do that, but never experienced it before.

To "go free" or not should be strictly a personal choice. I am frankly upset at some of the judgmental posts in here. There is no medical necessity to wear a bra, it is a fairly recent invention. Reading through all these posts, obviously some women love bras and love wearing them, others of us not so much. In recent years I have mostly given up wearing them, I don't work outside the home and live in a hot climate, and am so INCREDIBLY more comfortable without. I am however, somewhat modest and wear them under any type of possibly revealing clothing. I do try as much as possible to wear clothes that either have built in support/coverage, or are easily covered up with vests or little jackets. At this stage of my life I feel I have earned the right to dress however I want and if anyone has a problem with that it's THEIR problem
