    As a woman, I'm displeased with the brassiere industry. I can talk to a person in Japan from the very chair that I sit, yet I can not find the perfect cross your heart support my breasteses long for.

    So I started thinking, what needs to be improved? What kind of suggestions could I submit to the titty commitee? my boobies have done so much for me, what can I do for my boobies?

    What about an anti-gravity bra? l;ike have this force field around them that relieves them of gravity, making those puppies just float around in weightless bliss. It'd do wonders for my shoulders. Man that'd be cool.

    Might be a nice idea, an anti-gravity bra... but just think about those with larger breasts, and all those double-F's or trip-D's floating around, getting in your face all the time...

    You're in that size area? Your last paragraph suggests it.

    there are probably a few companies out there who can custom make brassieres at a reasonably good price, assumming the size is within reason.

    Tho, you'd be amazed at how many porn starlettes silicone and saline sweeties there are who virtual trustee's to such manufacturers.

    But if you have a family history of having this developement, (so to speak) then it's worthwhile.

    Annie Mae--

    My wife's very large & has had her bras custom made for years. she says that comfort-wise it's the only way to go. She now has them made by a woman who originally got started in the business because she couldn't find anything comfortable for herself. Makes sense to me.

    Wife's advise is to try a couple of good corset shops in your area. They should be able to put you onto people who do custom fitting. She shopped for quite a while before finding the right person, but says it was well worth the effort. Good luck.

    I'm not that big, but I find that Frederick's has the best off-the-rack (so to speak) selection of bras for larger breasts than anyone else. The problem is with most of the manufactures is that once they get up to size D or larger, there's no more padding (which greatly adds to comfort) and many of the bras are actually minimisers! I'm not ashamed of my boobs, nor do I want to make them appear smaller just because they might make someone else feel uncomfortable. I want them supported and looking full (support is very important for your back as well as avoiding stretch marks).

    Custom made bras would be great, but I've been able to repair and alter my bras from Fred's and get pelnty of use out of them for much less investment, but as I said, I'm not exactly huge.

    For a woman, you sure talk about your breasts as if you were a teenaged boy.

    Thank you, the niavity of this board astounds me at times... let's see... joined yesterday, on a larger penis newsgroup, and the first post is about breasts, circa my rack is so big I'm having a tough time finding anything. Much less the vernacular choicing, and mistaken 3rd person referencing.

    Workin' on it.
    Proto-type model batteries only last three hours, then the invisible superstructure
    becomes visible and re-acquires it's 12 pound weight. So far no-one has gotten hurt when the weight manifests.
    More later.
    :D
    P.S. The male part support unit is already in production.
    Cost to follow (once determined).

    petite_asianbabe: I found the new IPEX bra from Victorias Secret to be a pleasant surprise, they fit my almost C's perfectly. Some of those padded underwire bras really hurt after a long day.

    You women have my sympathy regarding underwires, although I know that in many cases they are a necessary evil. One year in college I dressed as a (female) field hockey player for a Halloween party, complete with a kleenex-stuffed 34D bra that I borrowed from a friend. Man oh man, I think I had marks on my lower chest from those underwires for *days* afterward!!

    LMFAO !
    My wife, however, doesn't think it's funny at all. That's one of the major reasons she gets only custom made bras. She can't stand underwires, and just about anything she can buy "off the shelf" has 'em. In her opinion they're absolutely not necessary.

    I'm not large but one boob is at least a half cup size larger than the other so finding a bra that fits correctly is almost impossible. Maybe the industry could do something about that.

    No smack coming there, Alley- you're hardly a noob! Unless of course you were hoping? I'm a 36DD, but that size is still easy enough to find in ready made bras, they even have a select few at Walmart. Anything over DD is where women have tremendous difficulties with bras, being in the strip club industry I get to hear it all.

    By the way, I didn't find the fact that Annie Mae had a sense of humor to mean she is a man! You guys are harsh. Having dealt with the lack of availability of large size garments myself from only being my size, I can totally see how rough it is for the truly endowed woman to find the appropriate bra, and if the fit isn't perfect, the pain can be intense. I like the support I get from underwire bras, but as I said the perfect fit is crucial and it took me quite a while to find it. I don't get to buy the $6 bras from Walmart, I have to suck it up and get the $40 ones from Fred's, but they leave less scars (I have permanent scars under my breasts from bras over the years) and feel better on my back. If I were a little perkier I would just go without, but at my age that's just not a good option.

    It'sjustme, most of us have that issue- here's my best advice: buy a bra with pad inserts and take out the pad in the cup side of the larger breast. It will help give a more even appearance and feel a bit more comfortable as well.

    Great advice about the padded bra, MZ, and I can't believe I never thought about that before. Thanks!

    My pleasure! It's so funny, I talk to hundreds of strippers a day sometimes and very seldom do I find them wearing the proper bra size. It's just something we don't talk about, so most women buy the same bra size that was the last size their mother bought for them. Most women do have one breast noticably bigger than the other, yet we all think we're a freak of nature because of it. I discovered the pad thing by accident and it's worked wonders for me, so I like to share that tidbit with anyone who will listen. If bras are ever too uncomfortable, treat yourself to a proper fitting at Frederick's or Victoria's Secret, even if you don't buy anything. Knowing your size can go a long way to improving comfort.

    Some clues: If your bras ride up your back, you either have the straps too tight, or they are too wide (the bras, that is). Try a bra one size lower but the same cup size (34C instead of 36C).

    If your bra make a crease across your breast, the cup is too small, go up one.

    Dont just put your bra on and let it smash your chest. Once on, grab your breast under the bra (first one then the other) and pull it inward toward the center and slightly up to fit it properly into the cup. Tighten the straps to the point where you have a gentle lift, but not a crease in the breast. This will give you the best look and make the most of what you've got.

    My work here is done! :D
