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!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
