Diane,
Thanks. I'll check it out. Don't go to Kohl's that often, but
will see what bras they're stocking.

yonuh,
See that's my problem. I'm NOT sure what size I take, even after being measured by a JC Penny expert. I took her word for it; bought several, but they were uncomfortable after wearing
for any length of time. I've tried a number of sizes but still
am not happy with recent purchases.

jabber, the problem is that bra sizes aren't consistent. Different styles and different manufacturers have sizes that may be off from what your size actually is. I have to try on a bra then sit, stand, bend, stretch, etc. to make sure it's going to stay in place and be comfortable. Even then, there's no guarantee that it will feel as comfortable at the end of the day as it does when you first put it on. As I said before, I hate wearing bras!

yonuh,
I agree: I hate wearing bras. But if I go out in public, I don't feel comfortable without wearing the darn thing. So I like to have a few on hand when shopping, eating out, and on vacation. We go to concerts, too. So I really need to have a supply for the times we do go socializing. But I haven't found any I really like in a long, long time. I guess these genie bras are okay, just have to get used to them. Everything you said in your most recent post, I certainly agree with. Thanks for the input!!!

Dianne,
Thank you for the info about Kohls selling Maidenform. I stopped, making the discovery that Maidenform has a new product. The "Extra Coverage Bra" is comfortable and nicely fabricated. Appreciate the tip!

I wonder if Chatty ever got her Genie Bras? I'd be interested to
hear her opinion of them!

Chatty...
Did you ever receive your Genie Bra order? If so, what's your
opinion about 'em?

Jabber, since you hate wearing bras, then you might get a kick out of this video about undergarments in the Victorian era:
Victorian Era Undergarments

Our bras aren't so bad!

Sandy N.
That vintage underwear is something. I'm very grateful I don't live in that era. It's not that I hate bras, I'm just looking for comfort. I've been unable to buy bras I can wear for long period of times. Some of the reason is since I'm not working, I don't wear one around home. Then finding comfort when I need to don one in public is difficult. I'm not happy with the look of some and the feel of others. I did find a few at Kohl's I like reasonably well. Thanks for posting the video. I enjoyed that!

Yes, we have come a long way from having to wear all those clothes! I can't imagine!! I understand that wearing those cinched-in corsets damaged internal organs, which is part of the reason so many women fainted at the drop of a hat and died in childbirth back then.

Oh wow Yonuh, I can't even imagine wearing those old time garments. I have always looked for comfort in clothing which is not always easy to find.
