    Ladies Only - bra recommendation

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and one of the areas affected is my sternum. Standard bras can be very uncomfortable. I have found wearing a snug tank top works fairly well, but after three or four washings the tops have stretched out. "Sports" bras are too tight - at least the ones I have found. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    I do not have arthritis but even though I'm size 2, I still can't find a sports bra that doesn't drive me crazy so I "stretch" them hard before wearing. I soak the bras in cold water and stretch them while wet, which makes tiny interior rips, not visible at all. I hang dry and they always feel great afterwards. I'm constantly in sports bras.

    Have you tried going an inch up in size in sports bras? I wouldn't buy the ones with cups, but more the plain tank style. Old navy has them cheap. Have you tried old navy tanks tops? Mine haven't stretched out at all and I have both the spaghetti strap type and wife beater type.

    I only buy online when shopping at Old Navy, online sales are very common. I don't know your size but I usually wear everything XS but my sports bras are usually Medium (thinner straps) for B cup, should give you an idea on sizing more or less.

    When I was my bras and tops, I never put them in the dryer. They last so much longer that way, and don't shrink up lengthwise. The elastic in the bras seem to last longer when not put in the dryer. My trouble with sports bras is that they give me a uni-boob. I'm going to try the Old Navy ones, and see if that is better. I like the wide cuff under the breasts. That would be more comfortable than the ones I have.

    Thanks for the tip! And I hate shopping too. Unless it's for another horse
