Best Bralette?



Recommended Posts

OK ladies - I'm headed on vacation. Bras take up a lot of room, so I thought about traveling with a bralette or something without an underwire/non-molded cups. But, I have the typical WLS problem of SUPER droopy breasts that are still decently large. So, anyone have a rec for a bralette or something similarly easily packable that is still supportive? Thanks!

Sports bra may have more support.

True, but I have a hard time wearing sports bras under real clothes. And for some reason my back usually hurts when I wear a sports bra (probably because I have the wrong ones, but how does one find the right ones?)

Some stores provide a bra fitting service

I can only think of a sports bra, one that doesn't much your boobs together like a uniboob. I have the same problem you do, they're still decently large, but sagging with gravity and in my case, age. I think I got a decent one at Lane Bryant. But of course the problem with sports bras is they make you sweat more and if you're going somewhere tropical you don't want to sweat. Sorry I don't know anything about bralettes.

I have a couple of Shapewear tanks with no wire or molded cups but they are made in such a way that they do provide support and are pretty comfortable. It is important to try them on since you want a pretty snug fit. This one is from Maidenform but I got it for cheap at Ross Dress for Less. I actually apply antiperspirant under my boobs after a shower and then use some Gold Bond powder to prevent itchy boob sweat when wearing these. I also have a couple of non padded underwire racerback style bras that work well and take up no room at all.

Maybe a t-shirt bra? Bras are hard. I go to a local bra shop with fitters even after PS

If you have larger breasts, a bralette Isn’t a good choice. No support

My normal bras all have support. I just like being a little more comfortable when I travel. And I like bras that are easier to pack than my normal bras.

I understand the convenience of them, I was weighing in from a larger breast point of view. I have Ds and a bra lette makes them look saggy and droopy

Oh, the girls will 100% look saggy and droopy, I just don't care all that much when I'm on vacation :) My #1 priority is packing a little as possible in as small a footprint as possible :)

I would recommend Torrid for a good bralette. My friend has a problem of dealing with larger breasts, and she absolutely loves their bralettes. Plus, they are super cute and super comfortable!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
