Bitching about bras

JynxedDraca Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I'm not a big shopper, I don't like to go out shopping, but shopping for bras will always make me cringe and whine and seriously consider to stop wearing bras altogether. I don't live near any good bra stores, I also don't have the money to spend ungodly amounts of money on bras that won't last more than a year at a time without the under-wire snapping (Victoria Secret I'm looking at you) and everywhere else...Well I'll make a list.

1) Under-wire: I like it, anything that doesn't have it I find uncomfortable and not as supportive as I like. But, I have to find one that has a wire that isn't going to sit uncomfortably on my ribcage either, takes a bit of hunting and searching to find a really comfortable one that I like.

2) Bras are fugly. Seriously, I went looking for a plain colored bra and that only thing I could find in my size were lacy shit that I can't run in, or 80s neon bright. Which I hate and think is super fucking fugly. I also wear white t-shirts and they show through quite well.

3) Padding. I wear a size D cup, I do not need ANY help in the boob department, if anything I would like to go down a size. Why is it all the bras that meet the first two criteria, have an inch or more padding for 'push up' appearance? I was shopping the other day and found a bra, that was for my size, and it promised to add two extra cup sizes to my appearance. Uh no. I don't need that goodbye thanks.

4) Sport bras. They should not be lacy, they shouldn't be 'super plunge', they shouldn't be push-ups, and for goodness sake they shouldn't have all three in one fucking bra! If someone is wearing a sports bra, its generally because they're going to work out, not going on a date. Do you know what happens to boobs if not properly restrained while you're running, jumping and generally being active (especially if you have size friggin D cups)? They fall out. And it hurts and is super awkward because everyone can tell when a boob has abandoned ship. I know, because this has happened to me. It is not fun or sexy.

I fucking hate bras.

I want bras to feel comfy :D I have C-cup but my breasts doesn't actually look so big but I really hate push-ups :D I honestly love plain colored bras with lace. They look somehow woman-like and sexy :D But yeah I'm really picky about bras XD

OMG SRSLY.  In addition to padding and ugly fabrics, I have to contend with being a size that's less common.  UGH.

Yeah, it's like they think everyone fits into this one range of sizes, and others just don't exist.

Admittedly, it's partly average sizes and what sells, but then you always hear that many women are wearing the wrong size. But still, bras! :stab:

Besides the whole bra saga, depending on your body type if you lost enough weight you could go down to a more comfortable c cup.

Typically boobs grow and shrink in size depending on body fat percentage.

My girlfriend went from a 10c to a 12d in a year due to putting on weight.

She's trying to get back to what she was now.

I'm really hoping I can go back to a C cup if I can lose the weight.

I hate sports bras. Then again, I don't do running and jumping sort of workouts that require one. But seriously, I gave up trying to find one.
But I actually have no trouble finding bras in my size that I like. I may not find that many, because after C cup it seems like there's a scarce supply of decent bras, but it's not an impossible task if I've determined I'm going to get myself a new bra.
But I agree that padding on anything but a C is ridiculous. :stare:
But, to what you mentioned about your bra showing through a white shirt, try wearing a camisole or tank top underneath.

I found one that doesn't hurt the girls so much, but I think it shrank a bit so now I can't hardly pull it over my head. I have to go find a new one now.

I normally wear a tank top under my shirts but for my ceramics class I just really don't care since I get covered in clay.

But your boobs have to look their best when you're working out!
