I have some pretty severe damage to my lower neck/upper back.  I won’t bore everyone with the details of that, but I’ve been miserable since early May.  Lots of pain and burning.

 

And, to just put this out there honestly, I’ve had a hard time tolerating wearing my bra for any amount of time. Even on the loosest hook and with the straps loosened. I’ve even tried a racer back bra and can’t handle that either. Going without a bra outside the house is not realistic.  So, I’ve been spending a lot of time at home.

 

My sister found a new bra at Target.  She loves it and wanted me to try it.  It’s by True and Co.  She bought me the v neck.  I wore it for the first time today and so far I’ve been in it for 6 hours and am doing well with it.  Don’t know that I’ll make it till late tonight, but I was able to wear it while running errands this morning and early this afternoon.  

 

It does not have underwire, but has good support. I’m a 36 DD and wear the XL. No clasps, no adjustable straps.  Put it on over your head.  I was so thrilled this morning that after lunch, I went to Target and bought a few more. It’s $21.99. It comes in S, M, L, XL and 1X and 2X.

 

So, if you have trouble tolerating your bra, for whatever reason, you might give this one a try.  


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Thank you for the “heads-up!”

I always appreciate receiving the opinion of someone who has actually tried a product.💗

So sorry that you have had all of that pain.😢

Thanks for the recommendation.  I have neck and shoulder pain and I gave up traditional  bras years ago.  I also don't like the look of metal fasteners and hooks showing through my clothes.  I only wear stretchy bras with no hardware that I can step into but I have to have some support in them.  I'll stop by Target tomorrow to check these out.

@chrystaltree - fake an order on Target online first to see if your Target carries them. I went to one Target this morning and they told me their store didn’t carry them but it turns out (they searched for me) that one close to my house does.

@gidgetgh   Thanks for the recommendation.  I dislike wearing bras...so difficult for me to find the combo of comfort and support.  I'll check it out!

@gidgetgh, I'm sorry to hear that you've been in such pain. Good that you've at least found a bra that you can tolerate.

I just recently started purchasing and wearing some sports bras.  I get mine from Juno Active. Took a bit to find which ones worked for me and they  have very very good customer service.  If you exchange items for different items, they still give you the discount/shipping on the new items.
