GUEST,Eliza BS: Women Only Please (97* d) RE: BS: Women Only Please 12 Jan 16

I have ten white bras and have a clean one every day.
I wash them at 30 degrees and dry them on a radiator in winter or outdoors on the line in summer.
They are a cotton/polyester mix, and underwired.
But I have never found a really comfortable bra. I am size 34F, and need quite a wide band/straps to prevent it riding up/cutting in.
Now I have an added problem in that my tendonitis means I can't reach behind to fasten the bra, and my husband has to 'do me up'.
I've been looking online for ages for front fastening bras, and there are lots. BUT size 34 band ones only go up to a cup D. I've even considered sewing a fastening into the front by cutting the material between the cups.
My husband goes away for 5 weeks this summer, and I can hardly ask my neighbours to 'do me up' every morning. And I can't wear the same bra until my husband gets back. I shall have to go bra-less and they will be swinging round my knees after 5 weeks.
I can't even do it up in front then slide it round to the back, as my arthritis/tendonitis makes this far too painful.
Any ideas anyone?
