The automatic toilets at the schools I sub in flush when you sit down, but don't when you stand up.

Plus, the privacy walls in all the elementary schools are not privacy walls. I understand that elementary students are shorter, but when the teacher's head and shoulders are sticking out, it's too small.

Why are bras without padding so hard to find? Everywhere I turn you either get one or double push-ups, or magic up, or what have you.
I'm not really well endowed in the chest area, but I'm fine with what I have. More power to those who wears them because they want, but I just want a cute bra that doesn't do 'false advertising' where I don't see why it should.
I'm slowly getting used to the idea of real 'lingerie' (you know, lace and stuff  ??? ::) - I'm perfectly comfy in my cotton underpants), I guess it's easier to find non-padded stuff when it's supposed to be see-thru?

I *hate* this.  I'm extremely well endowed in that area, and you'd think that the bra makers would realize that somebody who needs an E cup bra does not need any extra padding.  If I can find a bra that has no padding, it's flimsy and has no support.  I used to buy my underpinnings from an old woman who ran a shop on Miami Beach, and hand made them to fit, but she retired and nobody in her family took over the business.

Add me to the list. I especially hate the neoprene bras that lose their shape if you dare to wash them.  ::)

The extra padding is to help hide "headlights".  Because women are not supposed to have *whispers* n1pples.

Yeah, darned if you do wear a bra with padding "she trying to make her big boobs look even bigger!" or one without "she's showing!"

Try looking at Dillards for Wacoal bras.  Nice, supportive bras.  They are a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

I always have a problem with bra straps slipping off my shoulders no matter how many times I adjust them.

Try the Ahh-Bras.

I am a F-G cup, and wear 2 AhhBras (one over the other) they are comfy, and give decent support.

I swear by them, but I know others who hate them so YMMV.

I'll give them a try.  They can't be any worse than everything else that is out there.  Thanks. :)

I'm also a F cup and the AhhBra gave me absolutely no support at all.

And here I sing the praises of Freya, Elomi and Panache.  I am currently an H.  Yes. (Nursing mom). Normally a G.  I did not know until I tried Freya that the center panel really could sit against your chest, even if you had more than an A cup. Bonus: they're pretty!

They are pricey, but worth every penny, and they LAST. Also once your get your size right there are deals to be had in Nordstrom Rack and online. Especially if you don't care about wearing last season's fabrics.

Piratelvr, straps slipping off = wrong size.  If you ever make it in to B-more I have a great shop to get correctly sized.

If you have to wear 2, it's not doing its job as a bra.

Seconded a vote for Panache; the Tango 2 is the most comfortable and supportive bra I've ever worn. The Melody balconette isn't bad either, and Curvy Kate do some lovely balconettes that also do the job nicely. HH/J cup here, dependent on style.

All this talk of bras reminded me of something that drives me up the wall...why are 99% of bras made for the larger sizes underwire? I have tried dozens of types, and had them professional fitted, and I still hate them! Which leaves me like 2 or 3 options only no matter where I look.
