    Well, I meant hold them correctly as in the right size. So where should one go to get sized? Remembering I live in BFAz.

      Even the right sized bra can be uncomfortable depending on materials. Also after an hour of wearing it you may learn the underwire digs into your arm pit just enough to leave a red spot, making it a complete waste of money b/c she'll leave it hanging in the closet never to be worn again.

      Naiad, where do you get sized? I've only been sized at Lane Bryant and Vickie's.

      • See if you have a lingerie shack around. Not a porn shack, but someone that specializes in ladies' lingerie. If you don't, y'all'd be better off doing it yourselves/ herself.
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Home (Geek helps) or a specialty lingerie shack out here (Pennyrich, if Twibble's reading.) Vicky's was the place that told me I was a 34C.

          • I will have to see if there is a reputable lingerie place up in Tucson. Thanks.

            • I know of no reputable lingerie places where I live. We have Vickie's and Fredericks... well, maybe Fred's has closed... Vickie's and Lane Bryant... that's what we have.

              • Maybe Talbots or Penney's would be a better choice, but I haven't seen any women with tape measures around their necks at Penney's lately... and I don't shop Talbots...

                • I was sized at Nordstrom's. Expensive, but worth it. In my experience the lower end bras do not fit as well as the upper end bras.
                  Wacoal fits me much better than Playtex.
                  Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

                  • Never heard of Wacoal...

                    The best FITTING bras I've ever had were Hanes... but they were not very supportive. They just kind of held them in a "smoothed" less floppy version of going braless...

                    My Lane bra is holding me up and in place, but I think it's too big as there is a gap between the cup and my boobie. And it's chafing my underarm. But it's hot pink and black!!

                      Yeah, Fantasie and Freya fit me a LOT better than Vickie's ever hoped to.
                      Jenn, Penney's got closer than Vickie's did. You might just hafta do it yourself with a tape measure.

                        Sounds like the cups are too big and the band size MIGHT be right, so long as it's not the straps holding them up.

                          How old is your son?

                          It is hard to sleep at times with them with us, but I just look at it like its only so long they will even want to sleep with us.
                          Both of my children slept in our bed from birth, then around 2 we began talking about getting their own bed, so went shopping and picked out their bed, and stuff for it. We would lay with them until they were asleep, reminding them we are always not far away, and then would leave once asleep. At first they would come in to us quite frequently, but it became less and less. Around 3.5 ish, my oldest would then go to bed on his own, and rarely comes in to us. He has a little more this last week close to morning, but he did just start school, so probably just craving a bit of closeness, and thats OK with us. My youngest also comes in sometimes. We still lay with him till he is asleep, but he is only 2 years 9 months, but maybe in a few months we will start working going to bed without us.

                          I hope something from there helps you

                          And ask for bras, I am so looking forward to getting decent bras, once I get new boobs some day lol.
                          I just wear soft cup sports bras at the moment, as nothing else is comfortable.

                          • Bra: found out the one I'm wearing is not a Lane Bryant but a Fruit of the Loom... and it's a 38DD, not a 38D, like I thought. Guess I still probably have my D's... and as for the brand... dooooood, it's hot pink and black!!

                            • Ayla, my son just turned 6. He slept in our room, all night, in some capacity or another for 4 years. 1st year in his bassinet. 2nd and 3rd years, in our bed between us. 4th year in his own bed, but still in our room. Last night and the night before he slept beautifully. He still comes to our room in the early morning - like around 5ish. I think that's b/c Brad wakes him when he leaves b/c Brad thinks it's necessary to slam the door on his way out.

                              • Grr men! LOL. He is only a little older than my oldest
                                Thats great he is sleeping better Sometimes it can be as simple as them worrying about something they can't quite articulate, and eventually my son will get it out, once we are talking, and then all is good again. Good luck
