I did for awhile one year but then I found a traditional bra I liked better. What I liked about the sports bras I had were that they hooked in front, and that's what my new bras do.

LOL

Please report me.

The fact that the first part of my post was formatted in italics, separate from my own comment that followed, would suggest that it is a quote from an unnamed source.

The fact that you would accuse me of plagiarism is laughable.

They make minimizer bras that are less bulky than sports bras.

I sleep in sports bras.
I want everything to remain where it's supposed to be forever.

Now she raves about how comfortable how bras are. They are cute, sexy and comfortable bras. She wears Elomi brand, but there are similar brands. The clerk said that most stores just sold her the closest size that they had in stock (so that they could make a sale) but they were never her correct size.
Elomi is unfortunately the only brand I can wear because of my cup/band combo. At least huge bras can be pretty now, it wasn't that way when I was in high school. I find when the fit is truly right that underwire bras can be comfortable and not dig. Also anybody who is getting their bra support through the shoulder straps is wearing the wrong size, I don't care how many fittings you've had. In a well-fitting bra, the band does the supporting, NOT the straps, and there should be no spillover or uniboob.

I tend to wear a looser over the head sports bra at home that doesn't give me enough support to go out in, but is very comfortable. I put on the underwire to leave the house. My Elomi bras fitted great before I had the baby, but now the wire is digging in after a couple of hours because they obviously don't fit right anymore. I'm reluctant to spend money on new bras at the moment because I don't know if I'm going to stay this size .

I can't do the Lane Bryant's because the smallest band size is too big.

You're being a bit pedantic since it was easy to see it was quoted material and all ya had to do was give a little google and you found it immediately. The world we live in makes it pretty easy and even though I was in academia for a period of time, "plagiarism" of this material in this "forum" doesn't make me clutch my pearls.

Do you also correct misspellings and grammatical errors?

A mod edited the post to provide the link. So that would be the final word on the matter.

Why would someone choose a pretty bra, over a confortable one.....unless you are an exotic dancer.

Pretty and comfortable aren't mutually exclusive.

Anyway, lingerie of any kind is overrated - expensive and on the floor in 5 seconds. Lingerie is for women, guys don't care.
Have to disagree somewhat--lingerie suited to the tastes of a women's man can spice things up. But yes, they do end up tossed aside quickly. Men in my life have always preferred nice lingerie.
