TPB (the perfect bra)

I briefly touched on the bra issue in a previous post, Op Shop Days, but here is more.

I am a “big busted” girl, always have been since my late teens, and the search for a bra that fits, looks good and feels great has been a bit of a trial for me (and many others as well, I am sure).

Not for me those pretty, lacy, scanty, single-hook-and-eye, thin strappy pieces of fluff, oh no!

No, I get to wear those awful, huge, plain, re-inforced, 4 hook, inch-wide strap things that strive to uphold all of my womanliness against the force of gravity.  Sadly, gravity ALWAYS wins.

So, in a strike against boring, I was happy to buy this “soft” bra – JUST BECAUSE OF THE COLOUR! (it’s red not pink)  Ok, maybe not just because of the colour as I already have it in beige, but also because of the comfort factor.

Red Bra

I am still on the lookout for TPB, one that looks pretty, has straps that don’t slide off my shoulders (would love one in a racer back style, but sadly not in my size) and yes, I have tried the silicone pads under the straps – ended up with huge blisters from the pressure, and one where the underwires don’t jab into your armpits.  Is that too much to ask?  It appears it is.

The search continues .

thanks for listening

  1. Aha…I have your problem as well and I recently bought a bra from Autograph…sooo shapely and comfortable, and pretty too. My boobs now aim forward with less pudge on the sides and have a lovely profile. Can highly recommend it. 🙂 Oh, and I’m about to make my own after doing some research and drafting. If they turn out okay, I can do some for you…custom made with all the lovely trimmings as well.


    1. Have you got a brand/model name for the bra? Better yet, up load a pic.
