    Default Fluff - Underwire bra - vs. not

    I remember from another debate that several of you were size D or larger. Can any of you tell me if there is such a thing as a supportive bra in that size that is not underwire? If so, what are some good brands and where to you buy them? If not, how do you get the underwire to not come out and poke you?

    I have not found one that I really love in a large size that doesn't have underwire. It might be a personal thing but I find that the underwire keeps my shape and without it I get saggy and makes me look heavier.

    This is the problem I have, however, I find the underwire to be uncomfortable and always comes out.

    It took me awhile to get used to them but I've worn them since HS so now I'm good.

    A good underwire doesn't hurt. Might feel different but shouldn't hurt and I very rarely have one pop out unless the bra is old.

    Yes. I am DD and will NOT wear wire. Goddess makes great ones, Warner makes some. Go to biggerbras.com and also Amazon....you will find affordable ones. I hate the wire. I shun it!

    Sing it sister! I also hate the wire and refuse to wear it. I have ONE really pretty lacy black bra that I wear on special occassions that has underwire, but those are the occassions when I've typically thrown comfort to the wind anyway (like, if I'm wearing my lacy bra, I'm also probably wearing heels which are even worse.)

    I can't really help with larger cup size bras since I am a C, but I will tell you that my pain point is that I prefer a (lightly) padded bra (not to "help out" but in case it's cold, if you know what I mean.) and it's murder trying to find a bra that is padded but does not have underwire. I found a couple at Kohl's that I like, but now I can't remember what brand they are. I'll have to look, in case they also make larger sizes.

    I love underwire. Won't buy anything else.

    I also hate underwire! It's nothing but evil torture. A well-designed bra will support you without it. Underwire IMHO is like the flying buttresses used to hold up old churches rather than rebuild them; it's lazy engineering, LOL.

    I love my Goddess bras but they are pretty expensive and I can never find them in stores so I have to buy online; the good news is if you use their sizing instructions and the bra doesn't fit, they'll pay return postage & send the correct size right away. Playtex's 18-hour line of bras has a couple of styles in larger sizes without underwire and you can find them just about anywhere.

    Amazon really does have good deals on good bras with no wire. I bought a bunch there when I lost weight and needed a smaller strap size. They're great.

    This is also my problem. I have (yay) lost about 20 lbs and that is the first place it goes, so I need all new bras. Such a challenge to find something that does not make me sag, does not hurt my shoulders, and does not have underwire. Anyone want to become a millionaire? Design a better bra...
