Default Oprahs bra advise

Has anyone taken Oprahs bra advice? I bought 4 of the bras that she recommended (they are very expensive). I cannot tell you how big of a difference it makes!!! I thought I was a 38 or 40DD....I am really a 36 E (bra expert just looked at me and told me what size I was)! I cant tell you how much better my back feels. No more 50 lb weights hanging from my chest! I could feel the muscles relax as soon as I put them on. I have been wearing them about a month now. My advice....spend the money. Its sooooooo worth it (at least if your back is hurting).

My fantasy is to have a breast reduction. I want TINY ones, like mosquito bites, at least down to a B cup.

I do not have the same problem as you, but my daughter does. She is on a budget and she has had good success with the bras from Lane Bryant..very comfortable with good support.

www.oprah.comI (broken link) think it depends on what size you are, but the ones I got were made by Wacoal. They were $55 each. I couldn\'t believe they cost that much but I was desperate. I have NEVER bought a bra for over $20. I am so happy I spent the money now! I actually bought mine at a department store. The bra expert handed me 3 different bras by 3 diff makers. She told me to try them on, but that the Wacoal bra would fit best. She was completely right! After I tried them on she said that this wacoal bra is their top seller throughout the country because of the fit. I am always skeptical when someone is making money off of me, but she told me to wear each of them for a couple days and If I didnt like them, to bring them back. I would get 100% refund no questions asked.I have looked all over the internet for them and they are $55 everywhere. They make one new color every season and that one will go on sale at the end of the season but it sells out quick.</p>

If you get a great surgeon you won't have that problem. Much of that is due to old techniques. Newer techniques avoid various nerve bundles so that you not only do not lose sensation, you also do not lose the ability to breastfeed. Personally, I can't wait to get mine done! I'm a 42F (Triple D) and am anxious to get to a C cup. If it means I lose sensation as opposed to losing the pain in my back, grooves in my shoulders, general humiliation when out, buying clothes, or being naked, then honestly, that's fine with me.


Wacoal bras are just about the best I've ever had. Every once in a while, they will do a seasonal event where you can get a good deal (buy 2 get one half off, etc). I would ask every high-end retailer to put you on their list for stuff like that so you get notified. Most of the time they don't make it public.
