Jan 24, 2023

I've been having a lot of mysterious medical issues lately and my bra search has effectively been put on hold.

One of the symptoms has been a condition called anasarca, which is an all-over edema caused by low blood protein, specifically a protein called albumin. Anyway, medicinal factoids aside, I've been putting off buying a bra because my body keeps fluctuating in shape and size, and I'm not even going out in public much anyway, so I tend to go braless 90% of the time.

Putting on bras and taking off bras (and all clothing) has also gotten significantly more difficult due to joint inflammation and limited range of motion. So I tend to forgo them. I'm hoping that once all of this has passed, I can see where my weight and body shape settles and finally get myself one or two new bras that (hopefully) fit right.

  • If you are interested, this is the company I bought bras from before i came here and was able to find underwire bras that fit me - and i still always own 1 or 2 of these for wearing on weekends and work-from-home days. They are sized but stretchy - esp in the lycra - and you can order them with a front closure. Not cheap but possibly an option if you are interesed
