GIRLS ONLY! Brassiers… a ‘delicate’ question.
Girls… can we talk? *lol*
I just don’t know how to put this delicately, but, I’ll try. There is an off-shoulder blouse I want to buy. But, in order to wear it, I would also have to wear a Strapless Bra. I’m old… 62… and not only have a large bust, but one that’s down-to-there… if you know what I mean, (and I KNOW you do! *lol*). No augmentation for me… at least, not yet!
As such, I’m in need of a Strapless Bra, but don’t know where to go to get one. The stores cater to smaller-sized, (and, might I add, more perky), busts, *lol*.
If any of you could steer me in the right direction, I would be forever grateful!
Was I delicate enough? *lol*
This question reminds me of the time I worked as a floor sales clerk in Mervyns of California when I lived in MN. An older female walked up to me, lifted her blouse right in the middle of the store, and said to me, "Do you have anything that will fit over these boulders?"
Unfortunately, with bras it’s a lot of trial and error. Soma Nadine is supposed to be a very good bra for larger gals.
Ok, same boat…work from the waist up and you may even wear more of off the shoulder styles. I like some of the simple ribbed tie-up underwear garments! Have fun and you just might!:smileywink:

Miss Maiden, yes the long line style in your picture is a much better choice if you decide against a traditional strapless bra. Either style will work beautifully with that blouse and both options usually come with removable straps. I really think you will be pleasantly surprised when you try these out. Do you have a SOMA near you as they have the largest selection for full busted women?
:heart:?´¯`*•.¸¸?:womanhappy:Yesterday, I had 3 doctors appointments, in Jersey, it’s all Malls, and each doctor was near a big mall or strip mall, so I took the time to see who measures good, and who had the product of possibility. Pretending I needed a strapless and fitting, I went a huge mall ~ Macy’s and Nordstroms have the product, Macy’s gave me a so so fitting. Next, I went to Lane Bryant, they only went to trip D, and she was incredible with my measuring and very polite and knowledgeable steering me away from Sexy Bustier and one Piece Sexy, she went for a nice fit and a pretty bra. actually she suggested an to try OLGA from Sears, yes they do fittings, and ask you to bring your clothing in that you will be wearing for the best fit. I went into the Avenue, which is sister store to Lane Bryant, and I knew the staff from a few years ago, She gave me a fitting, and they are only up to a more roomy triple D. I never had so many fittings, to keep it Yeah, I’m in the Mall, we shopped, some great sales OY VEY!! With each store, didn’t even feel like it added up to much,(ps yes, shopped, big sales) LOL. Ok my Dear Friend, I have a early morning dentist appointment, so right after I will hit the TJ Maxx, Burlington, Marshalls, and a few other womans stores, hubby goes his way, I go mine. I will look for something and try to get another fitting, and suggestions galore for YOU. Have a Beautiful Day, dreaded dentist is the worst, so early in the morning. OH Ladies, been using Club Sig A argan and 5 essential cream, and her last special of the capsules, I got so many compliments on my skin. Ok, back to the "GRIND" and then check out what’s good for YOU:):) xoxoxoxo ToffeeDude, you’ve got a friend ~ ?´¯`*•.¸¸?:heart:
Faire, what a beautiful blouse! You’re going to look gorgeous…no wonder you’re seeking the perfect strapless bra. Wish I knew what to advise. Hope you find something relatively comfortable.
FM, I would stay away from any bodysuit style. Those will definitely slide down! There are long line and corset styles that will stay in place. BTW, the blouse is fab!
Okie dokie… I went shopping online and found a few designs that surprised me! When I think of a strapless bra, this is what I imagine…
The ‘Curvy Couture’ line here at HSN… 357-481
But then, I saw all these and, boy, so much to choose from. Who knew? *lol* Not me, who only ever wears the comfort bras!
<<<— I think this one is my favourite!
it is cute. I am older than you so with that sheer fabric more than my upper would show. Girl that color of lipstick is delightful on you.
You just need a boost of attitude and you will wear it beautifully. You do have an enchanting spark in that eye.
Have you thought of tossing a boho scarf in a similar style that would lay over the uppers. You got style an you will rock it.
:heart::womanhappy:Definitely Loving this Top!!!!! WOW, it will look beautiful on You, it’s very Oooh LaLa Sexy, and I hope you take a picture wearing this and share:) You will look enchanting, and ready for the Red Carpet, Love It!! :heart:Wear with much happiness and in good health and fun, xoxoxo TofDude :heart:
Lets us know how it works for you. That top is so sexy! You go girl:heart:
I bought sports bra @ Lane Bryant. I was shocked how many bra varieties they have – and as someone mentioned, helpful staff. Good luck to you
FM, I’m pretty sure Angiklco is talking about double sided security (fashion/lingerie) tape. They sell it here at HSN. It’s great to have on hand.
