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

Strap Perfect. I swear by them (https://www.strapperfect.com/).

Oooh, me likey! I have slim shoulders and am not very well endowed so the fact that they'll even give a bit of a lift is nice!

I have some of those. Unfortunately all my bras are adjusted to the very end of the strap so when I add these I feel like I'm being choked.

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.

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!"

Add me to the group who doesn't need, and hates padding. I finally have found one style that fits, AND doesn't have padding. And I also use something called DIMRS, as I have, ahem, a rather annoying headlight issue. They're round silicone pads you put over the offending area, under your bra, and they really work well! They aren't meant to be worn sans bra, and are bit pricy, about $30 a pair, but I've had mine for several years now, and they last well. i prefer them to the adhesive thingys you stick on.

My other driving pet peeve is people who get in the middle lane, and tootle along well below the speed limit. I get that you might not be comfortable driving the speed limit, esp when in some areas its 70, but please move to the right lane!  You're impedeing the flow of traffic!!!

I love ice cream but due to some tooth sensitivity it hurts to eat anything that cold. *pout* Milkshakes don't bother me though, thankfully.

When info-mercial wares are ONLY 19.99 plus 9.99 P & H  But wait!  Order now and you get a 2nd doo-hickey for FREE, just pay separate P & H.  So, it's not really ONLY 19.99 and it's not really FREE either!
Ugh!  Just pick a pricepoint and sell it from there, people.   ::)

I use round cotton pads made for cosmetic use.  They can move around, so I check the mirror whenever I'm in the restroom.  The silicone ones sound interesting, though.

This link did something that drives me crazy--a LOUD yammering commercial that started the second the website loaded up.  I'm at work web designer.  I don't want a loud commercial about bra straps echoing through my office!  I instantly closed the website and will never access it again, just because of the loud, annoying commercial.

I use these under a bra:

I love them. They stay put, they're easy to clean, and a single pair has held up for more than 2 years so far.

I just saw a post in the mac & cheese thread that deserves mention here:  People who can't stop bringing up a stupid and embarrassing mistake you made as a child or a teen.  I don't care who they are or what else they know; this is rude and insulting.

I knew someone who worked for one of those businesses.  She took phone orders.  She was supposed to offer all the freebies because the company made its money by charging an arm and a leg for shipping and handling of those freebies.

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.

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


Except for people who have significant differences in size between breasts, which is not uncommon. One is almost always bigger, and in a good chunk of the population, one is a cup size or more bigger. Until designers start making custom swap-out cups, wearing two is the only option.

But the PP said she wore two because one didn't give her enough support, in which case, it is not a bra she can really 'swear by', because one of them isn't doing its job. I don't see how one can swear by something that you need two of them to achieve what one is supposed to do. That's not a great product endorsement right there.

In my area, it is better for slower traffic to be in the middle lane or lanes, since we have both exiting and entering traffic on the right and passing traffic in the left. Unfortunately, we don't have a minimum speed limit, but it generally works well.
