    Bev I know what you mean. I was an A before kids (and before gaining any weight). I had 4 kids and nursed them over a year each. I had so much extra milk that I donated also. Now at 54 I am B and they are better then ever. As far as the original question...humm what was the question....LOL. Oh well, I wear one in public but the minute I get home the girls are free to be "primal". If I have clients come to the house then yes one goes back on.

        I hate bras and haven't worn one since the late seventies. My breasts are not huge, but they're not tiny either. I don't know what size they are because I don't wear bras!

        As far as droopiness goes, I am 57 and my breasts are not very droopy. They still kind of stick out.

        I also had no nipple soreness or cracking during breastfeeding, I think because my nipples were already "tough" from not being encased inside a bra for years.

          This is my piece on whether anything in the modern world is primal or not. The only things that would be considered "primal" would be the foods they ate, the little bit of clothing they probably wore, the weapons/tools they used for hunting/gathering and the water they drank. Other than it, isn't primal. We are a modern society so birth control, bras, cars, etc are not primal but we have them readily available to humanity as a whole. That is why we are a modern society.

            @Sigi- So body armor and safety glasses? Safety glass should cover the eyes for #2. ;-) You should like you have bladed nipples.

              BAck in the fifties, my mom wore the really pointy bras that were in fashion then. They looked like guided missiles: a sort of Cold War style. Once I hugged her and I remember the point poked my eye. So it is definitely possible.

                      I'm a 40D so I wear a bra outside the home and when exercising. Around the house (at home with child for now) I'll usually not put one on until late morning when I running around doing household chores. Just sitting on the couch though I let them go free. Mine didn't get big until I started to gain weight in my mid-20's. I was a small B cup and that was absolutely lovely. Bra or no bra it was just great. Now there is no way I would leave the house without some sort of major support going on. No wire bras though, hate those torture devices. My hubby loves them bigger too, so I'm not sure I would want to be a B cup again, but a C would be perfect for me.

                        LOL you basically just posted exactly what I was going to

                        Having said that, I do yoga before bed braless in my jamas. Have to remember to not jump into the postures though lol. And yes my husband does enjoy watching me, I have a white jama top and have been known to joke that maybe I should pour a glass of water over myself lol. I like to change into my night clothes for the evening because the heavy duty underwiring does get a bit annoying by the end of the day.

                        Mine do sag but that's inevitable for someone who was naturally large breasted and then gained a large amount of weight very rapidly, and has the type of skin that forms stretchmarks rather than being elastic. Unavoidable really.

I'm 5'6" and BARELY a B cup now (and very much an apple-shape), but I was that freakishly tall girl in 3rd grade (when I started menstruation and wearing training bras). It seems children with NCAH usually shoot up in height, but wind up shorter than average as adults (I'm not sure if breast size really factors in that much, but considering we're talking about a hormonal malfunction it's entirely possible).

                            Bras are lame. If it wasn't considered crude to flop around, I'd totally ditch mine.

                              I'm a very small person and also pretty much flat chested (I wear a 28B or C, that is the same volume as a 32AA or A) but they are sensitive. It's much, much more comfortable to wear a (well-fitting) bra if I am going to be anything but sitting around, for many reasons. I know of what I speak because I was bra-free or nearly so for the first 10 years of having boobs, out of sheer stubborness. I also find it more flattering in clothes.

                                Very interesting, I hadn't looked into that before. Although I am technically an apple or ruler (by measurement), that is more recent due to the hormonal weight gain, and my actual shape is more pear/hourglass and you can still see that from the front/back profile.

                                I'm technically a D cup but my boobs just don't seem that big, lol. I do remember getting teased about them when I was younger, but it seems like everyone else caught up and passed me by on that too!
