Title: Do you prefer bras with cups or with very little lining?
Post by: ChrissyRyan 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)?

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.

Each style bra has its pros and cons and one can wear what works best for them. If soft unlined bras work for you wear them.

I am just thrilled I can fill at least one “model” of my B-cup bras.
I feel some space unfilled in other B-Cup bras.

So maybe I am a “B light” and not a full B, but I am growing some more this year.
So I am delighted.  I like filling the cup, it feels nice and is affirming.

Now, if I can get my iPad to always work so I do not have to use a friend’s spare one at times, I will be happier yet.  I got a newer one last year but it was not new.  Maybe my next one should be new but I still may try another used one.

Dear Chrissy:
This is great news... I am so very glad that you found bras and bra sizes that work for you.

As you are certainly aware, every bra, even the same size, will fit your unique body differently.  I am a 34 C  C-Cup and I have a variety of bra sizes that fit me well. 

Of course there are what are called bra Sister Sizes so a 36B bra has the same size cup size as a 34C....
and a 34B bra has the same cup size as a  36A bra....  you can also find those bra band extenders that will allow the 34 band to fit a 36 underbust and so on.
This is true for most all bra cup and band sizes.... see the "sister sizes" chart below:

Danelle,

I think I would like the B cup to correspond with my band size, rather than to step down in band size, extend, and get a B cup in the smaller band size, all for being able to be pleased in my mind in reference to “being a B cup.”   I am filling one B cup bra well, and that is exciting!   :)

I am getting there, but if there are no further developments I guess I will simply remain a happy woman, as there is so much for which to be grateful.

In regards to the existing tablet, well, most of the time it works, but there are times when it does not seem to work at all.  Cold booting ignites it some of those down times.  At other times, I need to let it “rest.”  Then it will mysteriously work again after some indefinite amount of time!  Likely a battery problem.

I dislike using my desktop or laptop except for work. 

Have a nice evening ahead!

Chrissy

@ChrissyRyan:
Dear Chrissy:
In my own experience with bras, the bra bands usually have 3 settings so a bra band extender is likely not required if you are just moving one band size larger or one band size smaller.

I wear a 34C bra but I also have 36B bras that fit well and I have a 32C bra that fits well... all WITHOUT a bra band extender.
Trial and error is the routine with bra fittings.

Danielle

True, but bras do stretch and using the outside column of hooks first, before stretching, seems to make sense, then work to inner settings as the bra stretches.  I would really have to stretch a new bra that is two inches smaller in band size to get it to clasp.  For me, I think the extender gizmo may be needed in that case too if I did not want to ruin the smaller band size bra.

I guess I want the current comfort and to fill the cups! 

I am not doubting that what you say may indeed work, at least for some ladies.  I think it depends on exactly where you are for comfort level at the band size:  at the outer hooks, middle hooks, or the inner hooks.

You are so nice to write back with ideas.   :)

Hugs,

Chrissy

I don’t wear a bra, I have found the topic informative though. One day gravity will take over and I will have to wear one. Till then, I seriously hate being bullied and refuse. I did wear a bra, one week I went without and my friends bullied me so much I refused to wear them after. I have larger than average size breasts, so probably I should but no, you know? No one has to live my life, pay my bills, I am not inappropriate as everything is always covered, no one gets to tell me what I have to be anymore, what I have to wear. Now, my boyfriend has asked me not to wear certain tops in public and the fact that he sleeps next to me every night gives his requests a little more weight so I comply.

So not a response of what bra I wear, but still kind of, right?

You may discuss anything about bras you want on this thread, including brand names, model names, cup, bands, decoration on them (such as lace), sizes, colors, support, itchiness, wearability, how you wash them, number of hooks in each row, materials used, what you like about any, what you do NOT like about any, costs, etc.

However, cutting out cups and using them as face masks crosses the line.  Unless it is a really old bra.   :)

I like the smooth foam cups.....  T-shirt bras are a good choice for tops with thin material.
Here in the winter, not so much of a problem.

I was wearing a smooth foam cup style today.  They are comfy.  I got some great pricing this fall for some nice new fitting bras.

I like them both, for different reasons.

A lightly lined bra with underwire makes my breasts feel like women’s breasts.

A foam cup gives me definition and projection.

cups. I'm not a fan of my shape and the ones with very little padding, like T shirt bras give me the perfect shape.

The foam cups do give one a little larger and nicely shaped boobs. Shopping for bras can be fun when you can try on different styles and see how you look in each one.

Depends on what I’m wearing.

If I’m going out, I have padded bras that do make me look a bit fuller.

If I’m just hanging around the house I usually wear a lightly lined bra.

My main thing is to soften the high beam look I still have as I’m still growing.

I love the ones with no cups now.
They are super sexy.
I kinda feel like I can't wear them everywhere because of it!
