Why is wearing undergarments making me feel sick?

28 posts in this topic

Dear Amanda Thorpe,


I understand what you're going though; I usually wear a sports bra so I don't have that feeling. 

Usually I have to wear bigger then my size bras but that doesn't help my figure at all because I'm a big busted women.

When I first needed to wear a bra it hurt a lot and I was constantly looking green  and throwing tantrums  

saying stuff like " can I please take this death trap off '' or, '' this is worse the corset"

and believe me it was.


P.S. I have worn a corset and it hurts.

Hope you get well.

Hello Anastasha2


Welcome to the forums and thank you for your post.


Unfortunately I have not found a solution to this problem other than a rather impractical one. Last time I travelled to my specialist in London I had my husband undo my bra once in the car to try and give the "girls" as much chance as possible to stay in the bra. I also wear a cami type top to aid this and just sit still. When we arrive at the rest stop my husband has to re-hook me so we can get out of the car, the only problem is that I have to surreptitiously scoop the "girls" back into the bra! When we visit the rest stop on the return journey the bra comes off and all I can say it thank goodness for the cami top! 


I have thought about a longline bra and if I can find one in my size may well do. At the moment I have been going up a band size but this creates another problem, the impact of which I underestimated, the "girls" trying to escaping from the bottom of the bra! Not cool!


One day I will remember to actually ask my specialist about this.


Take care.

Amanda, here in the States, there is a bra that you step into, there are NO wires or hooks to fool with!  I have found it difficult to wear "regular" bras for a while now and have been quite thrilled with this bra.


Hopefully you can find it online or something similar in your neck of the woods. It's like a sports bra, but has more support. Good luck with your search!
