Tips with Bras & Breast forms

Recommended Posts

**Angela Charlotte **

Hello. I’m now have been on hormones for 11 months. I’m starting to like the changes I’m seeing. I now have small breast what I  Measure is 40 chests and  44 across the fullest part  but not a full cup I think yet. My question is when should I think about getting a bra for the the real me. Will a sports bra work as a trainer?  2, should I stop using my breast forms?

Over time i got smaller silicone forms....."chicken cutlets".  They actually offered a bit of protection from the edges of doors.

I never really used a training bra and now for the most part i'm braless.  I have decent development but the gals are rather pert and don't bother me by bouncing etc.  Perhaps i'm just a child of the 60's.   I normally dress in loose clothing in the summer and have been enjoying the freedom.

The other evening when i went out in a cotton T i noticed that the headlights were blaring but i just smiled and kept going.

You may well want to wear one to start but i'm sure that in the evening you'll be happy for the freedom in time.

 

Hugs,

My breast forms became uncomfortable pretty fast when I began HRT.  Charlize idea about the "adds one size" type of silicone enhancers did work for a time as well.  Another product that I used are called petals which have s sticky silicone  surface on one side that keeps the nipples from being as obvious when you are not wearing a bra.  An old riddle that I have posted here a time or two that does have truth to it:

What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF. 

 

I have maxed out (after 10 years) at a B and find the front closing bras to work better for me.  Part of my tissue is under my arms and the Front Close pushes that forward.

I never used forms so no commentary here.  As to a bra, for me the answer at first was more emotional than physical as there wasn't much there to support, but a sports bra felt good.  They became old fast as they were the pull on type and not comfortable to wear all day or to take off.  I went shopping for a "big girl" type with clips.  As to when physically, when you need protection as Charlize noted.  I found as I grew the tendency to bump and nudge was quite painful.  

 

The long and short of it is when you feel you've outgrown the forms and you want/need a bra.   My best to you!

I just heard a comedian taking about his daughter"s "training" bra.   He had to ask his wife about how wild they were when young.

I laughed, after all we don't want them running away!

A year in and I still don’t mind wearing a bra. At the start I liked the bralettes best. There still my go to for pjs on super hot nights too. Underwire isn't comfortable, but it sure does a great job of pushing everything where it belongs. 

I use the little add a cup chicken cutlets still at times. Usually with something that shows a lot of cleavage cause the rest of the time I just don’t care.

I still wear my breast forms whenever I feel like that I need a little help.  My natural size is a 38B and my breast forms are a B cup so it does help me when I am feeling like I need a little help.  But there are some times I sleep in my breast forms and some times I dont.

 

But to me it is all about comfort and how realistic you look.

 

What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF. 

          I love Vicky's quote here and I guess that I am a Trans individual cause I will admit that I love wearing a bra but OMG it feels so good to take it off when I get home.

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      My opnion is. They should man up and play Rugby Union.  It's like this you speak of but without all the cotton and bubble rap.   Proper mans game 😉

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
