Not my first Bra I bought, But..

Recommended Posts

Guest cerise

Littlr things amuse me and make life worth living.

Today it was buying a Wonder Bra on sale in The Bay.

Ther was a reason I was there and that was to buy a bra for cheap without having to pay duty and shipping.

My fav is a non wire Back support bra up until now.

I was obsessing about a conical bra probably for 2 months at least and almst bought one this Newyears .

It was the second tome I cancelled the order. Why ? I don't know. Didn't want to spend 50 bucks I guess as now that I am used to shopping for my clothes in person I am finding I can get something pretty sweet if I set a limit How Much.

Any way getting to the motivation of the posting. I love how it looks. I guess liking how my bra looks is something I never thought would give me that much comfort.

Plus it was on sale. I am really feeling the girl in me now.

:wub:

A little support does a girl or the girls good. Enjoy. Makes me think mine might be getting a bit tired.

Hugs,

One of the joys in life is finding a bra that fits good, looks good, is priced reasonably, and is comfortable. One usually sacrifices one of these, but the rare finds are out there if you're patient.

My revelation today is as I cleared some boxes from my storage, I donated over a dozen bras and clothes to the gals recovery house. Clothes I don't need??? Amazing! Just like most other women...

As an early CD, it was the dumpster or grocery store parking lot donation bin at night out of guilt and shame.

Later CD, just try to take my bras? We gonna scrap now!!!

Today it is wonderful to give up nice attire I don't need, swapping clothes and openly having fun. Female fits me so well.

For a long time I mail ordered soft cup bras from Carol Wright Gifts. They seemed to fit me well enough and were inexpensive too. That helped as my girls grew. Hug. JodyAnn

Hi everyone. Bra shopping is one of greatest joys. I love going to Kohls or TJ Maxx. My favorite brand is BALI and prefer the lightly padded soft cup styles they give you a nice shape. Hugs. Amber

Mine are definitely getting tired, but I don't want to buy too many since I have a ways to go in the 'growing' department'. My favorite is also Bali :) Once I found the style(s) I liked, I just started buying them from Amazon.

I haven't tried a wonder bra, or any push up bras, but it would be groovy to improve my cleavage.  On the other hand I try to get away without wearing a bra most of the time.  Tight tops do require a bra though to cover up my headlights.  So far all of my bras have come from Target, nice stores with good selection.

hugs,

Stephanie

Because of my slightly different approach than many, of wearing a bra that fits my large band and small cup (no forms), I have found that I can only get bras that fit me online. I have succeeded though and wear a medium padded non wired bra. I find them soft and comfortable and can wear all day without issue. It has become natural to me.

No I have not tried one Amber, but when I look what they are I think they would do the opposite of what I need. They appear to be for reducing the appearance of a large bust whereas I have very little so I need what I have to show. That said, I am comfortable with what I have. Large breasts for me would be unlikely genetically and I have known a number of cis women who have problems with their health  because of their size. Maybe it would be an option at work where I am still presenting predominantly male (although I do confuse some clients I visit :D ) as to show obviously female dress may bring adverse reaction, but as my job requires robust clothing so I just carry on as I always have. I am beginning to miss wearing my bra while at work though. Strangely(?) it feels so natural. I will have a closer look, thank you :)

They do sound like the type of thing that could be used by FTM in marginal cases instead of a binder.

Right now it's a racer back VS sports bra, so comfy, so shapely....

Ohhh, I see. I'm a bit too large for them. They tend to cater to smaller women. One of these days I want to check out my local Soma store.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a fairly big girl, and I've found a wirefree bra from JMS called Pure Comfort, and that's just what they are for me. They're stretchable, no hooks, I like the way they make me look, and I never ever have to adjust the straps! Plus, they're cheap. While I buy them online, I have seen them in stores as well. Love 'em! I've pretty much abandoned wearing my other bra's in favor of these.

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

I get my Bras from Dainty Lady - online here in Uk. They do ship to other countries. Their clothing is probably made to order so delivery times are longer than usual.

Been a while since my last purchase and technically I have enough.

With the emergance of some breast tissue after being on HRT I have been more inclined to find one that works with what I have or will have.

However I have noticed that the HRT has markedly reduced my tendency to dress and am just more content to slop around the house.

Weekends are a little different.

I think HRT calmed me to the point where I became comfortable with my self and I could see who I was.   Did clothing validate that?  Yes clothing made the woman.  But I now had other things to rely on.  I wasn't in a constant internal battle with myself and my body was changing, and that took the emphasis off dressing.  I was me regardless of clothing!  

BTW, I think I probably have too many bras, that actually fit and I wear. :o

I'm so glad to hear that. Even my wife has complained that I don't 'dress' as much since I started hormones. I tried to explain that I feel better about myself and therefore didn't need to dress as much at home, but do need more while out and about.

After a while, dress-up and to cease and you have to start being yourself, at least that's the way it feels to me......

Hi again,

Been lost in endless mixing of songs and day jobs for a while.

It will four months on HRT on Jan 6th and I seen my transition doctor on the 10th.

Curious if my E has gone up at all as it stalled on the last blood test. T was lowered.

I seem to be a little more inclined to dress and think I should as every time I slack off I seem to gain a bit of weight.

Its just that when i am on the computer doing music I just want jeans and a  sweater.

Another reason is most of my girl clothes are a synthetic natural fabric mix and they are not that warm compared to all natural.

Post winter sales are on and it probably a good time to pick up better clothes that I will wear.

Talk in a bit.

Gig tonight and need to get ready.

I am learning Lola as my 60th cover but had a little trouble getting comfortable with the lyrics especially practicing it en femme.

Decided to chop the last verse as it would be a lie for me.

Left the second last verse.

" girls will be boys and boys and boys will be girls

it;s a mixed up, muddled up shook up world except for Lola."

 

I figure thats okay and says where I am at these days.

Not confused anymore:)

 

Love you all!!!

Cerise

I still like to dress-up, but that is for when I am going to a party or other social event.  While I didn't start full time at work until May, I was on HRT in January of 2016. Until going full time, I had the dysphoria kicking in when I was forced to be in guy clothes. Once full time, it became sort of fun still but routine. Some days though it is just nice to not dress up and relax. I still have a blue skirt from my pretransition that is ugly--it will never be seen in public, but comfortable.

My average workday it is a 50/50 chance I am wearing jeans or a dress/skirt and almost always a simple set of ma. I like dresses because I don't have to think about pairing with a top. When I get home though I tend to just dress down and sometime take my bra off .

I now of course have a full wardrobe but still have days where I have nothing to wear!!!

      hey aidan i know this isn't related to this topic but check the new thing i posted on suicide prevention i felt very low yesterday i still feel it today its called why keep living?
    • Markjvp
      i know this cycle will continue for now at least while im in school and im expecting university to be super hard so why keep living? but again i cant kill myself... not yet and i know things im throwing away if i do it
    • Aidan5
      PFFT haha! Whoops!   Thnank you everyone for your kind regards as always!! ❤️   I do plan on keeping in touch, and try to rebuild a relationship with them, thankfully they are willing to help with moving me out.    I also apologize if I am not as active, for I will be busy with things for the move
    • Markjvp
      actually i think i dont have both because even when im super low it can disappear and ive never had mood swing before (if thats what bipolar disorder is) but i have suspected that i have depression because from time to time basically if im not distracted enough and if i start thinking negative things i will get sad maybe feel low    i know you probably understand how im feeling but i keep fighting and every year is kind of like a cycle at this point school gets harder i most likely pass the courses that i take and at home i just watch or play then at the weekends we go somewhere because we need to buy something but also each year i go through something like this at least once when im feeling super low and at least once in the year im so sad that im thinking of... you know... suicide. so we cant just give up? how my life is pretty much a cycle right now a loop theres things added to it like this site but i just dont want to keep living like this im like a wild animal being put in a cage but was fighting before but now giving in or I AM in the cage slowly giving up and i can probably describe my life a couple more ways. ive always wanted to be free and ive always been someone who tries there best at everything but whats the point of moving forward when i almost have no help i know "keep fighting" but again its getting harder and harder and i know the people here can only help so much but not as much as you being here physically for me...   i still cant kill my self not yet and ill probably keep doing what im doing even while sad but why keep living. yes i probably should get professional help but how are they going to help because i can most likely counter what they say "there's people that love me" that's just probably my mom and dad and i cant feel the love from my other parts of my family i dont know what else someone might say but thats how i can counter that. also im not taking any medications right now

      Yeah, I had about a year of peace before they took my off HRT for surgery. There's probably something up with your T-levels. Your endo will take care of it if it doesn't settle down on its own.   Hugs!
    • KathyLauren
      Good for you for doing this!  Public speaking, though it can be terrifying, is a great confidence-builder.  ANd sharing your experiences will help others on their journeys.  Way to go!

      My one superpower is being able to calm babies down enough to go to sleep. Though it has always worked better on other people's than my own. 🥰 I do not miss projectile vomiting and green diarrhoea though! Congratulations on becoming a big sister Emily, and for finding a decent therapist to help explain things to your parents.

      Didn't turn something down yesterday,get to speak out at a local monologue with 11 other post op trans women.An employee of mine told a couple of her friend whom are organizing this about me and asked if I would do this.Looked them in the eye and told them yes.I want to tell my story which is an open book on my life even during my transition and when I had my GCS in January.They were happy I didn't turn this down.Told the news to my mom and 4 brothers and husband,they plan on going to it.Friends found out too,they told me I am doing the right thing and will help out other trans women that are struggling needing help and encouragement.Found out 3 of my friends whom are now post op trans women are doing it too.I am so excited about this and not looking back.Glad I get to let it out in a good way.First meeting is next week meeting the other 8 that are going to be in it and this is going to happen in June.

      my coffee is sloshing and spilling reading this    Arousal happens, even post op, I feel it at times, it's actually a good thing and not a problem for me, more like in internal warmth.    When I still had the "boys" as Kathy eludes to, it was at least a year of HRT to have calm

      "American components, Russian components... All made in Taiwan!", such a great throwaway line - I loved that film!

      It could be that your T is up a bit.  Your labs will show if that is the case, and no doubt your doctor will make the necessary adjustment.   I had similar symptoms lately.  I suspect that my T is up a bit.  My doctor still hasn't quite gotten my levels stabilized after I switched anti-androgens last year.  (Off spiro, onto cyproterone.)  I don't care, though, because in two weeks, the "boys" will be in the hospital incinerator.

      So for most of going 11 months on feminizing hrt, my levels of arousal have simmered down. This has been a welcome effect. I've still been able to get aroused when desirable, but it pretty much stopped happening spontaneously (such as in the morning)...    But for about a week now, I've been getting aroused more spontaneously, including mornings. In a bad way, like it's kinda making me anxious. Is this normal? Should I be concerned about my hormone levels? Getting my quarterly labs done in a month.

      It's a small world Kathy, what a neat story.    Going to be a nice sunny day here.    C

      I had a surprise blast from the past last night.  A musician that I played in a band with 25 years ago found me on a Facebook page for patients of my GRS surgeon.  Yes, she transitioned, too, in the past 25 years.  We have some serious catching up to do.   It looks like it will be a sunny day.  Not that it's going to melt anything.  We had another ice storm yesterday.  I had to wear crampons to take the garbage out this morning, and they were barely scratching the surface.  Ugh!  I suppose it will all be gone by June 😠
