    Great article Beth. My current favorite bra is the Third Love line…and I finally got myself a Lacey racer back to wear with a sheer upper back t-shirt I picked up. The combo is pretty and tasteful and I feel good in it. And I don’t feel like I’m trying to compete with the twenty year olds…a line I am consciously avoiding! Lol
    Love your stuff…keep it up! lynn

    All excellent suggestions! I wear the Wacoal sports bras and they are simply the BEST! I have “substantial girls” and they don’t move! I have two nudes, a navy and red. Now I want the berry color! 🙃

    I like what you said about carving out the time to shop for bras. After YEARS of naively wearing the wrong size bra, I went to a small shop that was renowned for its bra fittings. But to my dismay, despite its reputation, I didn’t get a good or accurate fitting at that shop. Like many women, in addition to front cleavage I have “side cleavage” and every bra I tried resulted in a lot of overflow under my arms. When I pointed it out to the clerk, she snapped, “There’s no way around that!”. So I went home and spent a fair amount of time online learning how to accurately fit a bra myself. When I’d done it according to the terrific online instructions, frankly, I didn’t believe I was the size that my self-measurements indicated I was, but I then went to a department store and spent a couple of hours trying on various bras in that size and voila! It was indeed my correct size. The correct size not only eliminated the underarm spillover, but it made a huge difference in how I looked and felt. And I agree with you that bras are like jeans: when I find something that fits, I buy several.

    I have the Wacoal Minimizer and love it. Had it fitted by specialist and it is very comfortable. Expensive but with proper care they last a long time and don’t stretch out, etc. like cheaper bras.

    A good reminder that I want some new bras. I think when you have a good bra and a good fit, you don’t even think about it–it’s comfortable and you forget all about it.
