Do you prefer bras with cups or with very little lining?
« on: October 12, 2020, 07:42:21 pm »
Do you prefer bras with cups or with very little lining that cover the breasts (or very thin cups, definitely not molded or padded)?


Chrissy



Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I'm wearing an sheer mesh bra tonight.  What I wear depends on my mood at the time.

I prefer any comfortable support bra. Currently I  have several  Platex 18 hour bras.

I also have a few special occasion bras and I must admit, they are not that comfortable.

The thin unlined bras can easily show your nipples through them, so depending on what you are wearing for a top your nipple maybe on display for everyone to see.  There maybe times when you may want to show to a little nipple shape but not for everyday wear.

For everyday wear, padded t-shirt bras. they are comfortable and give me great support. I perfer the padding, as it makes my breast appear smooth under my clothes and i dont want the shape of my nipples to show, especially when I am at work. I have t-shirt bras with straps or strapless.

For a night out or a special occasion , the the more fancy lacy sexy bras are worn.

Yes, t-shirt bra's for me.. They give nice support and look nice under clothes..
When I started out, those thinner, no-wire bra's worked well.. but as I grew, the support actually became useful from having a wire and a cup..

I have three styles of bras I wear. None of my bras have an underwire.

95% of the time Anita sports bras. It gives good support and it fits great.
2.5% of the time a shear sports bra (not at work unless I wear a sweater),
2.5% of the time a target bra I forget the name but it is a foam cup padded bra.

I don't understand why some don't like an underwire.

Nearly all my bras are underwired, as I love the definition and shape the wire provides under the bust.

For me, the key feature is the bra band. I find that a deep band with 3 or more hooks provides so much more side support & forward push into the cups.

With these bras, all my wobbly bits end up as booby bits and not fat under the armpit!

Agree fully with you, I also love the underwire bra. All my bras are underwire.. besides a few sports bras.

I tried on some bras a few days ago, bought one, and put another on the “to buy list.”
Well, I liked the first bra so much that I decided to order online a duplicate.  When I did that, I went ahead and bought the bra on the “to buy list.”  And that one is an underwire bra that also has seamless contoured cups.  Same brand.  Same B cup.  It gives me a nice look too.
It fits well.   It is comfortable. 

One happy woman here.   :)

An underwire bra are great many girls, they give good support all over and hold your boobs just how you want them. The biggest problem is find one that doesn't cut in so it is comfortable all day.

I admit I felt overwhelmed this past week when shopping for bras.
There were so many.  Even after you considered that there were many sizes and colors for each particular bra, there were lots.

Some looked nice but did not work for me.  I am going back to look at some more that I have not yet tried on though and see if others will work for me.

Well, ChrissyRyan, you now realize why the bra department are so large in a well stocked store.  They need to have a selection of size-band and cup-, colors and styles, it take a lot of space to display them. Always best when you can try them on to see how they fit specially when you move around.

Thank you for the tips on the T-shirt bras.

Those and the contoured cups seamless bras seem to work out well.
Some bras tend to make my breasts project out a tad more than others
But they all result in me having a nice, smooth shape.

I do not like the mesh bras much at all.

My current feelings are soft cup all the way.  Cut and sewn, no-stretch, soft cup brassiers with no underwire, minimal elastic, and a thin band.  I don't care much for lace either.  Lace seems to get caught on everything and a pain to wash.  The girls and I have been very happy since the change from molded cups.  I don't have near the problem with bra straps sliding, boob sweat, or blouse gapping; not to mention the luxury of so much extra room in my lingerie drawer.
