“Contour” Bras: Holding Us Up, Or Holding Us Back?

Do you find it torturous to go bra shopping because 95% of what’s available falls into the “contoured” bra category? As in: the bras that are supposed to be “lined” when really, they’re just padded, unyielding cups? For some of us with larger breasts..

I let my nips run free without being self conscious until college when a neigbhor would poke at them with sticks when he got drunk.

Padded bras from then on.

I do not want to see other ladies’ nipples at work and do not wish to showcase mine. Outside of the workplace, less of a problem. But again, I see old women everywhere sporting NIPPLES and I just don’t want to see that. Sorry!

However, I don’t like the padded cups either, so there’s a whole nother delemma.

Padded bras get on my nerves too and in that same vein, padded bathing suit tops piss me off. I understand some girls are totally flat and maybe they want to rock the padding, but those things just suck up water and they make your boobs look funny (especially if it’s a triangle top). I hate picking up a cute bathing suit only to find out it’s got those fucking pads.
I’m with you on the padded bikini tops. I don’t particularly like the feeling of wet, leaky sponges strapped to my chest, thank you very much. Also, I don’t mind showing nips when wearing a bikini. If I wanted to be modest, I’d wear a suit with a skirt topped by a muumuu.
I need the little bit of padding because my nipples are super sensitive. It’s fantastically fun in the bedroom, but some shirts HURT my tic tacs, yo.
as someone whose tits ride a little low, I kind of love the contour bra. (and I just got into ’em like, a week ago. seriously.)

let me tell you, nothing make me look amazing quite like the VS infinity edge push-up. NOTHING.

I’ll admit to wearing a contour bra, but that’s because my perkiness turns into cone tit in most non-structured bras.
I wear a 32F…I noticed a lot of the girls with disproportionately big boobs complaining about trying to find something that fits. Can I recommend www.bravissimo.com? They are UK based and ONLY sell bras and clothing specifically for people with boobs. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to order a shirt and not have to slouch for it to fit in front.
I have not worn a bra in years. I found the beauty of camisole/shelf bra-type shirts. I have small tits, though.
Back in the D-cup days, I really liked the Bali Seductive Curves bra. I have one of the Le Mystere contour ones now in a 34F. I like the way they look under sweaters, and they’re certainly better than any VS bra I’ve ever owned.

That being said — my best push-up and supportive bras tend to be the lacy ones. I have no idea why, but they lift and separate better than anything out there.
