I'm over weight and can not find a bra that fits and is comfortable. I have tried sports bras but the straps cause irritation and are uncomfortable. They don't rub, or cause rawness/chafing.

so far the only thing I have found that works for me is the cami with built in bra cups things. Im having a hrad time finding them in stores now thougj. i usually buy a 2x  or 3x size. But have a hard time finding anything that doesn't crawl up, dig in, or cause irritation.


anyone care to share the type you wear? Brand? Where you bought it at etc..


THANKS

Goddess bras.  They are one of the only brands I can find that sell my size at a reasonable price.  I used to go to Lane Bryant and get Cacique too.(They don't carry my current size tho).  Get fitted.

Go to lanebryant . No cami has great support , I'd find a bra and not use a cami as a bra

I get my bras at Victoria's Secret. I have to have a bra with an underwire, and those are never comfortable.

i get the underwire bras but thats bc i have DDs lol idk what ur size is in that department, but i was a 2x and i would keep the straps a little loser, i also spend about 20 bucks a pop on bras bc im heavy and my boobs are big.   i never tried the cami ones!!! just try and get a bra with adjustments on the straps

If you have bigger than an A or B cup, your girls need to be supported by more than just a cami.

 I'm a 38D, and I wear all 3. It depends on what I'm wearing and what kind of coverage or support I need..  I also buy my regular bras from Victoria's Secret, they're undewires, but I don't find them uncomfortable.

I'm a D cup and I've been wearing camis as bras for years. I think it's comfortable. I usually get mine at Target or Gordmans.
