I have been wearing the right size and haven't had ANY shoulder pain, and my bra straps aren't tight either, they tend to slide off my shoulders too But it's tough finding the right size in stores.
I stopped wearing bras about 2 months ago, I'm about a 34C, and at first it was very weird, but I think it was mostly in my head since I don't think it was ever noticeable (I often wear some kind of camisole with a shelf layer or I wear several layers.
Now that I'm used to being bra-free, I don't think I could deal with wearing them again, I never realized how restrictive and uncomfortable they were.
I made my decision after reading about how bras restrict lymph flow (and therefore may be linked to cancer and cystic fibrosis) and weaken the Cooper's ligaments, which supposedly causes drooping.

I wear sports bras most of the time, have plenty of cleavage even with them, but I still have some of my lower cut lacy lifters if the occasion comes up. The sports bra comes off as soon as I get into the house though ... at 38DD, my shoulders start aching after a while. I have noticed that they are fuller than they were prior to going paleo/primal.
Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

I wear bras... then again I've always had sort of saggy breasts even when I was young and not particularly large. I find it physically uncomfortable not to wear a bra... so I do. However, I hate uncomfortable bras, and lately I've just been wearing those Ahh Bras (or variations thereof... there are a zillion brands of them now). They don't provide a lot of support - just enough so I'm comfortable. I wouldn't want to run in them though!! The only time I ever slept in bras was when I was lactating. I don't have to worry about jiggly breasts in bed and I don't know why you'd sleep in one!!
I wear bras outside of the house all the time. I am about a 34DD and prior to eating primal my breasts always had a sort of deflated look to them. Since going primal, my friends all comment at how great my breasts look They are much fuller and nicer now.
I am most comfortable around the house wearing a tight tank top with those built in shelf bras, but I still feel uncomfortable going out in public that way.
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
If I could look decent without a bra I would be totally thrilled about not having to wear one. My Mum always had a little saying about braless big breasted women.... "Black eyes and bruised knees"...
