Thanks @Susan R. You understand exactly what I'm going through. The straps on my bras can be hooked together but then they are too close and you can see them unless I wear a crew or v-neck. Those strap holders may be the answer. I've looked around thirdlove. I heard they're really good and I should give them a chance.

 

Glad I could help. Let us know if the straps work for you if you go that route.

 

Good Luck,

Susan R?

I had the same problem for a while and I ended up having to just wear sports bras for a while or I did have one racer back.  I looked at third love several times and it looks like they have very nice bras. I would also try soma if they have one near you. They are super comfortable and the associates were happy to help.

Some good information there.  I wear Soma all the time .  I like their softness and side coverage.  But admittedly I also have the falling straps issue.   I’ve considered Third Love and Pepper but since I’m in a growth phase I’m going to hold off.

Oh oh, am I wearing bras wrong or wearing wrong bras? Have not had any issues with straps yet, now I feel like I am in for a big disaster ?

It's a size vs. manufacturer expectations thing. If you're huge (5'11", longish torso, 42 inch band, A cup breasts) you get trouble with things like, "42 inch chest? She must have HUGE tracts of land!" or "Women are small, so these straps can easily be adjusted to any length from 6" too short to 2" too short."

 

I think you're just lucky enough to fall into what manufacturers consider "normal female range."

 

Hugs!

Bought a new bra today. I reluctantly bought one with a bigger size cup. My tape measure said I needed bigger but I’m not completely filling what I have so would I? Turns out it fits a lot better, doesn’t smush my nipples, top of the cups lay flatter and my increasingly frustrating falling strap issue has gone away. I should’ve listened to my tape measure months ago.
 

I would still like a little more but regardless..thank you boob-fairy. ?

I'm about 2 and a half months in to hormones, and I have definitely have some growth now. My first sign was last week. I don't wear a bra yet, so I was hanging around the house, and I caught my self in a mirror. I definitely looked like a typical woman not wearing a bra. At least in the chest area. 

 

So I grabbed a bra, and I filled the cups perfectly compared to 2 months ago. I'm excited, but also pissed ill probably have to buy new bras in a few months.

 

I don't know which way my breast will go through. One grandma has about a c, and the other has bigger ones now because of putting on weight, or they were always big. I haven't seen any young photos of her. My mother last time I saw her probably around a c also. No sisters, or blood aunts also. That leaves out female cousins, and even if I could use my female cousins for reference. Apparently all four of my uncles are breast men, so that skews that.

      Good morning all, coffee’s ready   We went to the mall yesterday and I got some long tops to wear over leggings.  Wife got one also.     I would normally love for Ian to come visit (that’s our son’s name) but not this time. Hurricane Ian is getting stronger and the cone of likely direction is pointing this way.  It would have to be greater than the category three before I’d leave.  But it does give me concern.  I’ll have to increase the number of dock lines on my boat and get my dinghy out of the water.  It’s in a relatively safe place but you never know.   Our condo association had a party last night. We had a band and potluck, and byob.  Our next door neighbor was looking for a table and we invited them to sit with us.  We had a fun time.   our plan for today is to go see as the crawdads sing.     I am very happy for each and everyone of you who are coming out at work, getting name changes and getting your surgeries accomplished.  Congratulations!  There have been so many recently that I can’t keep up.  Just know I congratulate each and everyone of you.   Hugs   Willow

      I was once told that when the men in the room start to cross their legs in self protection i've shared too much.  That same group was a LG meeting but by group conscious became LGBTQ.     Hugs,   Charlize

      Yeah, I can see how that would have been a positive! My siblings are all much older than me (I’m closer in age to some of my niblings  than to my siblings!), and my sister is super feminine and very opinionated. When I was a teenager, she was more likely to be pushing me to do things she ‘knew’ would be good for me (by making me fit in more, by making me more sociable, etc) than backing me up in my own brand of weirdness.    As a side note, I always find it interesting how many people praise ‘individuality’ as a concept, yet try to dissuade individuals they know from being different in any way. The body hair discussion from this thread is a perfect example. It literally causes no harm to anyone or anything if someone who is AFAB walks around in public with unshaven legs, and it’s completely illogical that ‘male’ hairy legs are seen as acceptable and ‘female’ hairy legs as unacceptable. Yet there’s an enormous weight of social pressure/expectation out there which lands on anyone who doesn’t conform.    At least now - as an adult, accepting myself as a trans guy - I can see things more clearly than my confused younger self, who vacillated between desperately wanting to wake up in a male body one day, and wondering why I was such a failure at being a teenage girl when it seemed to come so naturally to the girls around me.    Anyway, I seem to be rambling again (sorry about that - so many thoughts tumbling through my head, and this forum is the only place I feel comfortable airing them right now). It’s awesome to hear about people who had support to be themselves when they were growing up, and I hope that becomes more and more common as people become more aware of gender identities beyond the binary.     Sam
