they can be horrid if you dont understand how to use them....

step one lay it on the bed so that the back side is facing you.
step two put hands under the bottom and through the arm holes
step three move bra up so that its resting with the elastic just above/ at the elbows the elbows.
step four while raising the arms and spreading the arms wide put head through into bra and through the head hole. as you raise and spread your arms the bra naturally slides down your arms into position resting just above your "girls"

then slip fingers under the elastic and adjust over the "girls".

if you have the right sizing there should be very little struggles.

tip if you have longer hair put hair up in a band before sliding bra on so that hair does not get caught in the elastic of the bra making it harder.

you can also do the "step in" by holding the straps like you would a purse with the straps in each hand and step through the head hole. using the straps pull upwards until its in position to where you just need to slip arms in to the straps and adjust.

Okay, I'll try that at some point. The sports bras are more comfortable.

Shock Absorber sports bra. They are like someone else mentioned - regular closure at the back, but tighter than a normal bra.
I did punch myself in the jaw once when the strap slipped off my thumb as I was trying to slide it over my shoulder, but *usually* they are easy to put on

Well, I think the bigger you are the harder to get into and out of a bra in the first place.

I have intercostal neuralgia, so anything with underwire causes that to flare up. I usually buy sports bras. I recently found one style that is pretty comfortable, so I ordered 3 more online. I figure it's better that I do it now while the style is still available. If I don't and they style is discontinuted, I end up regretting it later.

My favorite most comfortable bra ever died today , the underwire broke.

Of course they donít make them anymore.

I tried on 4 others I have today because I had a medical appt, finally found one i thought I could tolerate.

Iím legit sad over this

It's very hard for me to find a good bra too. I just bought one in the right size, fits well, except the lace is so irritating. The one I used to have isn't there. What's with all this extra lace? Just thinking out loud. They are expensive, and non returnable, I wish a woman who knows large breasts need both underwire support and comfortable straps, no padding etc. would create one. I stick with one brand, but when finances are low...
I'll end up wearing the same 3 or 4 for years. I put them in the wash but hang to dry.

Since having my augmentation and thus needing bras I wa lucky to find a lingerie store that was very friendly and extremely helpful. I was fitted correctly and have always returned to be fitted each time I needed new bras.. I have found that I am for the most part comfortable wearing them which as been a blessing, after hearing a lot of women complain about theirs. for me at least it just takes the time and effort to get fitted and be willing to try on various brands and sizes until you fime one that fits well. It is so true with the above saying about bras but it is also something to be said about taking it off at the end of the day
