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.
