I have discovered on how a good bra can help-with neck and back pain-one that gives good support and doesn't dig in , and also no over the shoulder boulder holder-needs to be feminine-straps that don't aggrivate my trigger points-any suggestions?need :?:

Good Morning!!

Most brands make a version of their bra in "T back" form. What this means is the shoulder straps end in the middle of the back (sometimes they actually cross, sometimes not) instead of a straight line from the shoulder. They are actually designed for women who have slumping or curved shoulders and have the problem of their bra strap falling off their shoulders throughout the day. What this does is alleviate the pressure from one point and distribute it throughout. Vanity Fair and Playtex have the most comfortable ones that I have found. Would never go back to a traditional bra. I too have problems with trigger point pain. If I don't wear the t-back, by the end of the day points are screaming.

Hope this helps.

If you don't have trouble getting them on a sports bra is very good
it's comfortable , is distrubuted so it doesn't dig in .
my only prob though is I have to have help putting it on because of my right arm so , if my daughter or hubby isn't around i just say the heck with it and wear an undershirt , (which isn't very pretty when your a C :oops: )

Hi,

I found this on the Rachel Ray show. It is not a bra, but it helps with posture and support, gives good girly lift.

I think this may help with back and neck pain.

Good luck,
Nan

It looks like you wear it in addition to wearing a regular bra or strapless bra. Still seems interesting though and may be just right.

Take care,
GOD Bless!

I gotta get me one of those! :o

I always wear Victoria Secret bras. They are soooo comfortable, like you aren't wearing one at all.

Ditto on that Glenna . Victoria secret is where I go too.
I choose not to place "DIS" in my ability.

I'd love to shop at Victoria's Secret to buy one of those sexy, 'hold-'em-place' bras, but unfortunately, I've never found anything in there for the 'ample-bottomed' lady. I've had better luck at places like TJ Maxx or Kohl's.
