Let’s talk bras! I can’t find one to fit my sagging bust lol



Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

So since I have lost 149lbs (woot woot!), I am unable to find a real bra that fits. My loose skin under my armpit (side boob) and my now empty sagging boobs don’t fit comfortable in any bra. There’s always a huge gaping cup and I even stuff it but to no avail. I’ve gotten fitted many times but I swear they are wrong because it still doesn’t fit. They say I’m a 38C which is what I was before kids and before all the weight gain but I was much much fuller.

I’ve resorted to living in sports bras but you can’t wear nice shirts with a sports bra! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Pls let me know I’m not the only one not wearing a real adult bra! Lol

Thanks in advance:)

Excellent topic! I am so frustrated. Anxious to see what recommendations folks have.

I get fitted by the same nice, older lady at Bloomingdale's and have for the past 10 years! She gave me some options that have more coverage on the side to reign in the side boob. I also needed a smaller band and a larger cup size. Chantelle and Wacoal seem to fit me best. If you can afford it, my recommendation is to get fitted at a high-end dept. store by someone with a lot of experience, not a place like Victoria's Secret or similar.

I use Cacique brand bras from Lane Bryant and so far am not having any problems with fitting in the sagginess.

Floppy 1 and 2 inton near as I can figure a 36 between B and C cup. That's what we are missing, as the. Mom-and- Pop small local department stores phase out for Target and Wally World and their lower prices, the personal
touch is gone. And life is sadder for it. Z REMEMBER back when you sent a piece of paper in to find your ring size? Sure can't do that with boobies, I would LOL but it's a Sad state of affairs!

Try ThirdLove. They're really awesome and have half cup sizes too and a LARGE band and cup range. Plus you can try it and return it even if you've washed it, and they'll donate it to a women's shelter.

I go to a Soma store and have them fit me. Their bras are awesome !

I second Soma. The underwire in the bras that I have are high enough on the sides that it holds in all the side boob. And they hold their shape for a decent amount of time. And the outer side of the cups are firmly structured so that it gives your boobs a nice shape. And the straps are comfy.

And no, I do not work for Soma, lol.

Victoria secret fitting was way off. I walked out in a c cup and the girls were almost to my chin and looked like a shelf to set your coffee on. Soma fitting was great. Double D hides the side boob situation.

I also go to Soma. The vanishing back bra and the T-shirt bra are my favs.

Thanks for your help! I’m in Canada so we don’t have a soma...sigh...you guys always get all the good stuff. It may just be an excuse to take a mini road trip for the sake of the “girls” lol.

I’m gonna check out Walmart to see if they have that tshirt bra and convertible back bra @greentealael was mentioning!

Fellow Canadian, and Soma bra-wearer here :) Yeah sucks no stores here, but if you ever get to a chance to go on that road trip and get fitted, you can buy online after that :)

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
