Favorite strapless bra

I need a good one. I tried the one from the Gap and Victoria's Secret and they work just fine. However, is there one that blows these out of the water? I want a really great one--I'm willing to spend up to $50.00. Maybe the "really great ones" are a lot more expensive but...maybe not. Let me know what your favs are porfivor.

I got a strapless last year after not having one for years and year b/c they didn't stay up and were generally a pain in the a$$. I love the one I bought. I just checked the tag - the brand is Delicates (??) I've never heard of them, I just found it at Nordstrom and it's great. It has this sticky backing around it that keeps it in place - and it came with convertible straps. HTH!

I'm large chested (DD) and have never been able to find a strapless bra that stays up. I've bought all sorts of expensive ones which I never kept for long. But I got one at Target about a month or 2 ago and love it! It's a bustier but only goes down about 4 inches from the cups. It fit about one size smaller than I normally wear (I usually wear a 36, this worked better in a 34). I just looked on their website and I don't see it anymore. The brand was gilligan and o'malley, maybe their other bras are similar?

I don't know which one you tried at Victoria's Secret, but I've been using the Body by Victoria for years and love, love LOVE it. it come with convertible straps to wear 5 ways (including strapless), and also with the clear plastic straps (which I don't like, but some people do.) I find it very comfortable and you can rarely see the bra line underneath anything I wear it with. I think it was 60-ish dollars, and well worth it.

bra for large breasted women

Anyone know if there are any exercises that help reduce the size of breasts. Losing weight helps, but I really need help. I am only 5'4 and wear 38 F!! I can't afford surgery. Also, any tips on how to dress if you are cursed with too big boobs?

Losing 75 lbs made me go from a 38 DD to a 34B/C. However, there are no "exercises" you can do that will make you lose weight specifically in your breasts. Breasts are composed mostly of fat so you either may be genetically predisposed to very large breasts (hard to tell not knowing your general size otherwise), or that is just where you gain your weight. If that is where you gain your weight, that is also where you will lose it. If you have always had breasts of this size, losing weight may not help as much.

Cardio will help you burn fat, building muscle through resistance exercises will help you burn more calories when not doing activity. Good luck! I know how much stress having very large breasts can put on your body and on your mind!

A good place to buy sports bras for a big chest-- check out title nine. It's on the expensive side, but you know it's worth it.

I know how much it hurts. The only way to reduce them is to a) lose weight, b) get a bra that makes them not hurt you as much--at you'll feel like they're reduced.

Good luck!

fyi...many insurance companies will pay for a reduction now days. I had one. Except for my deductable it was paid for. Of course really a person should lose all their weight first. When I got mine, I had 3 children and wasn't having any more. Then I got married to a man with no children of his own and we had a baby...50lbs and a pregnancy later, my chest is huge again...altho not quite as big as before. Of course the baby is totally worth it...
