    Stand alone is a good name for them.

    I thought that was what bandaids were for-to hold in the nips!

    The only kind I buy now is "stand-alone" bras. I love them. To me they are great for no nippage, and I find them to be very comfortable. I have a friend that is a "D" cup, and she thought she wouldn't like them because obviously she doesn't need the help but now those are the only kind she will wear as well. She says for her they help hold everything in place, not relying totally on the strap.

    As for storing them, they do take up more room in the drawer, and in the luggage, but well worth the extra hassle.

    What about cost? I don't think you should be afraid to pay good money for a good product....especially a good bra. Walmart will not get it.....and even if it does at first, it won't for long.



    Does everybody's screen look differently (color wise) this morning, or is it just mine?

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I just stumbled upon this thread, and -- lo and behold -- here I find a topic near and dear (and frustrating!) to my heart: housing for the twins!

    Here's my story: I lost over 200 pounds and have managed to keep it off for well over 5 years (it's fun to have stopped counting!). My challenge is finding the right size band to go with DD cups -- yet still have a wide enough (four-hook) band to deal with the loose skin issue.

    I found a bra I like -- a very comfortable underwire (yeah, I know -- sounds like an oxymoron): Vanity Fair's "My Satin Fantasy." It has criss-crossy thingies in front that make the cups easy to adjust to wherever the twins happen to be sitting that day. The only problem is that my size isn't a big seller, so the stores don't like to stock very many, and when they do, it's only in white.

    My newest quest is to find a comfortable underwire with transparent straps so that I can still get support under a tank top without going for the trailer trash look. I know they make them for bodies that don't need bras; I wonder if they make them for girls upwards of a D?

    Anyone know of anything like that?

    P.S. I've been meaning to try out a "stand alone." Your posts have been encouraging!

    Ellen, I can't help you with the bra question, but congrats on your new body! I bet you feel like a million.

    Here's another question on the stand-alone types. I do like mine very much, but have discovered that the edges of the cups along the topstitching are beginning to curl out ever so slightly. No problem under a blouse or sweater, but under a t-shirt you can definitely see a ridge. Should I try another brand or is it just the way they are?

    I've never seen these "stand alones". Can somebody post a pic or a link?

    It is everyone. There is an explanation in the Announcements thread.

    Ellen you have me about the "housing".
    Also big congrats on the weight loss. I too have lost a great deal of weight and my problem is the opposite. I can't find a C cup anywhere. Seems most of my weight was in my chest as that's the first place it disappeared from.

    PR, you've seen the stand alones, you probably just don't know you've seen them. They hang on the shelves and look like you could put one on a 5 year old and give her the chest of a playboy bunny. Actually they look as if the invisable woman is wearing it already before you even put it on yourself.
