  • Hi mason- if you can go to a famous M&S store their ladies are fabulous at fitting and choosing correct bras for ladies all shapes and sizes. I.ve had similar problems because I lunge forward my bras tend to dig into my hiatus just underneath, I,ve got one good brand was shown how to adjust and put one on so that things "stay put" as much as possible.

  • hi caz54 i cant get out for a while i have fractured my spine its agony i can never work out my bra size i am 32 under my bust and 37 on my bust at the moment i wear a 36 B with on of those bra extensions that hook onto to make the bra bigger if you know what i mean i need advice xx

  • from memory mason M&S have a measuring guide on their web sight that will show you how to get cup and bra seize correctly and then advise on stock available, a purchase can be home delivered.

  • Hi mason

    Have you ever tried MandCo? They sell bras that are not under wired and you just pull on over your head so there are no clasps at all.

    They don't give the greatest support but they are extremely comfortable - which to my mind is the main thing.

    You can order online so it doesn't matter if you don't have a store near you.

    Wishing you much peace

  • hi blue mermaid3 not heard of this store i live in the uk take care ,

    Lu xx

    PS I can pm you a link to their website if you like?

  • hi bluemermaid 3 that would be grat thank you ,xx

  • I think m & Co used to be called mackays? Love their stuff. I get similar pull on bras from b&m. Again they don't give great support but are so comfy and elasticated so no hooks or wires. The only sore bit is pulling them on and off as the top if my back is always tender to the touch. X

  • Yes I agree. Sometimes it takes all my energy to pull it over my head! Still, they are very comfortable :) xx

  • I had that problem. I now step in to them, much easier 🤗

  • Knowing me I'd end up losing my balance and going head first into my wardrobe 😅 xx

  • That made me laugh !! I do the same lol

  • I have a pull on bra and it is really comfortable. It is fine to wear around the house but no good going out as it has no support. Being a larger busted lady, my boobs would not stay put!

  • You're just showing off now! From now on BB will have a whole new meaning 😃 xx

  • I thought it was just me ...I wear the sports type now as the clasp ones hurt my back

  • A subject dear to my heart but not to my bosum. Haven't been able to wear one in nearly 7 years. Trouble us I have costo chondritis and also the skin around that area is particularly tender. I have literally tried every one known to womankind. Had expert fittings and they all ended back at the store after sometimes less than half an hour. Tried pull on ones even the very soft kinds and have literally picked all around the bottom band so in the summer if I gave to go somewhere special I can wear them in agony for an hour or two and have regretted it for probably the next two weeks. I have a multitude of vests but some days even those make my skin tender, grhh. I am glad I am reasonably small breasted. Hope you are successful in getting one that fits.x

  • I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck my friend.

  • Hey there I've got to the point of not wearing one at home, at first I felt like a right old skank but it's more comfortable & I live alone so what the heck. My poor mum would be turning in her grave haha take Care

  • I have found Debenhams do two bras that are reasonably comfortable, they are both non-wired. One style comes in a pack of two and the other one is the non wired mastectomy bra which is lovely and comfortable. The shape is not too bad and good underneath t shirts as they are slightly padded. I know it is a problem and I love flinging my bra off as soon as I get home, don't tell anybody will you!!

  • Hi Mason

    I have the same probs the wire ones dig in underneath my boobs so I wear non wired ones - it's hard for me at the mo as I am losing weight - so I don't want to pay too much out on new bras until I'm at my weight. I've looked at the site mentioned not heard of it before - only downside to it is that it doesn't give prices - have also looked in Marksies and neither have my size at the minute so will just have to wait good to know the info though so thanks. Take care 🤗🤗🤗😘😘😘
