Edit 2: Holy shit! Thank you! Thank you so much for the awards! All because I like my back scratched LOL!
I know this is the 21st century but I’d love to get some female runners opinion on this.
Overweight beginner runner here in her mid 20s. Slowly progressing and getting better at it. I run in the city streets because I live right in the middle of a city and have no car to drive anywhere else nice to run. I also run as soon as the sun starts to rise - so around 6am or so.
Ever since I’ve started running I’ve been running in shorts mostly because sweatpants suck and leggings make me sweat even more. Lately, and as we progress into the summer, t-shirts have become cumbersome and I would much rather just not have to work out wearing them. And while I don’t mind at all running around in a tight sports bra and running shorts that leave little to the imagination, I fear that this might be inappropriate and don’t want to “shock” anyone.
What are some your thoughts and experiences on this?
Also, this morning I got my first wolf-whistle ever since I started running from three menacing looking... keep reading on reddit ➡

So, the other day one of my flatmates (with whom I have, up until this point, had neither a positive nor negative relationship with) sent me this long text that started with “we need to talk about the laundry situation.” This was a bit confusing, since I wasn’t aware of any particular laundry situation. The rest of the text was her telling me that I need to keep my bras out of the laundry room because apparently, when she had her boyfriend over, he went in there and saw my bras hanging up to dry on the drying rack, and was so shocked?intrigued?whatever that he checked the fucking tags (I have no idea if this is normal male behavior, but it creeped me out to read) to see the size, and then “wouldn’t stop talking about it.”
I responded with, basically, “then tell your boyfriend to keep his hands off my shit and shut up.” Flatmate did not consider this an a... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I haven’t worn a bra in like 3 years, I’m only a B cup and I just find them uncomfortable. It’s not like I’m wearing see through shirts or anything but I guess yeah if you look you can see the outline of my nipple.
I’ve been working at this job for almost two years and it’s never been an issue but yesterday an older coworker approached me and asked if I could start wearing a bra to work because she doesn’t like me “throwing my body around”. I basically told her yeah sorry but no, I don’t even own a bra and it’s not part of dress code from what I’ve ever noticed.
She huffed and walked off but now I’m about to head into my shift today and I’m getting anxious on if I’m in the wrong here. AITA for not wearing bras?
EDIT- I double checked dress code, definitely nothing mentioning a bra or even mentioning under garments in general. Tops just can’t have inappropriate photos/words, can’t be cropped and can’t be off the shoulder.

So, I'm (19f) currently 4 1/2 months pregnant with my (22m) boyfriend and I's first child. Now, my chest was on the rather large side before I got pregnant. Now, my chest area is always ungodly sore and I've outgrown all but one of my bras, and that one bra BARELY fits. Because of this, I like to often go without it. We live in a tiny little town thats about half an hour's drive from the city. I don't often go out into the city, but I always wear a bra when I do. When I'm in our little home town, though, I'm comfortable enough to be without it. My chest also doesn't sag and I do not make it obvious that I'm not wearing a bra. I wear baggy shirts and i will most often wear sweatshirts if I'm letting the girls be free. At home, I don't think it should be a rule that I wear a bra. When his best friend visits, I'm normally laying on the couch covered sith a blanket playing video games. So, its not like he can see I'm just hanging loose, you know?

I spent over a decade in retail and the amount of ladies that would pull cash out of their bra is surprising. Or the cellphone they wanted me to look at to see why the sound wasn't working.
Imagine if a guy reached into his underwear to grab some cash? No one knows when you last showered and half the time it is wet from perspiration. Employees should be able to refuse it. Sure they could just take it out before you see but come on..
This has happened a lot to me. I wear a 32G, so I do have fairly big breasts. I hate wearing bras though. I know many (most) women feel uncomfortable without wearing one, and I totally get it. Wearing a bra should be optional. It's an undergarment. Men go commando, right? That's not seen as 'slutty' or anything, it's just what they want to do with their dick. But breast and the male phallus cannot even be compared to each other. One is a secondary-sexual characteristic and the other is genitalia.
Do my nipples pop out sometimes under a plain t-shirt or something? Yes. But I've grown used to that, I do not care about wearing a bra and it's simple as that. No matter how well it fits me, nothing can beat the feeling of simply not wearing that contraption around you. And the biggest thing of all is that. It's not men who I find staring at me or anything, it's women who not only stare but are happy to comment on my choices.

I’m talking about those really thin cups that are basically just there to hid the nipple let’s be fucking real and honestly I’m a small chested woman and I don’t need the cups so more times than not I just take them out after trying to fish them around to the right way for like half an hour.
And before you say anything...it doesn’t matter about price. Cheap or expensive they all do it!
Usually it boils down to 2 options....nipples on show or uniboob workout. Or I could just like y’know fix it but fuck that when I’m in a rush!

My(27f) gym has temporarily closed down so i'm trying to workout at home. I've been running around 9pm most nights. It's cold where I live so I run in leggings, a long sleeve workout shirt, and a buff to keep my ears warm. When I go to the gym i'll wear a sports bra so nothing is noticeable if you know what i mean. I don't need to wear one. I can jog comfortably without one so when i'm running around my neighborhood I don't put one on.
Last night I passed a family of four (mum, dad, girl and boy around 8-13) on the opposite side of the street from me and I noticed they turned their heads as I ran by. No big deal. At the end of the street I turned and ran up the next street over and at the end of that street I ran into the family again. I had my earbuds in but I could tell they were talking and wanted my attention. I stopped, paused my music, and listened and the parents were quite irritated. They said I should have some decency and run with a bra on because a lot more families are ou... keep reading on reddit ➡
Every fall I have to replace all of my bras, because I wash them every time I wear them due to skin sensitivity and sweat, and the underwire just gets trashed even if I use fancy bra bags and wash on gentle.
In the winter I can get more days of wear out of them.
So me and my sister were jogging.......or well I was she was on her little scooter following me lol. When we got back she was bored when I was watching tv and started to climb all over me. I humored her and we were wrestling for a little bit (I am the tickle attack king lol). As we were wrestling and goofing off I saw her grabbing at my bra, (I was in a sports bra and running shorts) and nearly pulled the whole thing down.
I completely got off of her and told her that taking off girl's bras are a big no no and its like a private area. She didn't really understand what I was saying but she was giggling a whole lot. My mom was in the kitchen and told me not to lecture or parent my sister cause thats their job. I tried to explain the situation to my mom but she didn't want to hear it and then went to tell my sister the exact same thing I was trying to say.
My mom said next time to just call her to parent her cause "its not my job". AITA?

I haven’t been really wearing actual bras for a while now, I started to just wear loose ones or sports bra most of the time (since about 9 months ago till now), my cup size is D (or maybe double D now?).. ever since quarantine started i almost stopped wearing any bra, but lately my chest has been hurting and i was worried that it was because of not wearing my bras often anymore, so today I wore an ACTUAL bra (not sports not loose) and when i took it off it was the worst pain i have EVER experienced in my chest...
So is this because im still growing... or bc i stopped wearing bras... or because i might be wearing the wrong size / the size changed (idk how to check i usually do it at stores) —-
Idk i just want answers.. I’m still young but i feel like i know NOTHING about bras
Since tomorrow morning I'm finally having top surgery
Im not gonna miss them though its going to be weird to not have something to squeeze when im bored
Not at all an important or serious issue but I think my girlfriend is wearing the wrong size bra. She's a very small woman with a small bust.
She wears a 34B but I think they are probably smaller and a lot of the time this causes a gap in the top and on multiple occasions where she's been wearing a dress I've been able to see everything just by looking down.
Is there a good way or even a point in saying anything to her? She's a little sensitive of her size so I'm not sure if I should bring it up. I just want her to have properly fitting clothes and not accidentally expose herself is all.
And just to note her breast size does not concern me at all and she knows this very well. She knows how much I love her how she is. This isn't a "I wish they were bigger" thing.
Even asking about this seems a little silly but any advice on approaching it is good.

Makes such a difference in comfort and ability to breathe fully!
I was trying to explain to an individual of the non-bra-wearing persuasion just how awful salespeople in brick-and-mortar bra retailers can be, and discovered that scenarios we take for granted in bra shopping sound utterly horrifying if you translate them to the other type of garment with a zillion sizes, the one that everybody wears.
26F. Been wearing 34B cheap bras ever since I was 15. My breasts haven’t changed since then, with the exception of maybe growing very very little after I put on some weight.
Here’s the thing. They are tuberous breasts - shallow, very point, not full on the bottom at all, just sort of stick up in a conical way. They are also very wide, as I have a wide ribcage that goes with my rectangle-shaped figure.
As you can see, I have truly been blessed by the femininity gods by being given the worst kind of body and breasts possible. You can only tell I’m not a man because I have long hair.
Moving on. My whole life I’ve worn super push up bras. The reason? Because my breasts are so pointy, I feel the need for a bra that has a lot of extra padding on the bottom so that 1) the cups actually fit and aren’t empty and 2) so that I can give the appearance of round, full breasts. Every time I try to buy a bra online or from any brand I struggle with understanding my size because I feel like bras are... keep reading on reddit ➡
Okay so long story short, I'm basically flat chested A cup. My boyfriend and I argue alot, and one of the things he constantly points out it that I don't wear a bra.
They're uncomfortable for me because they're always too big, they look and feel stupid on me and I just hate them. He commented in an argument that I wore one when we first dated. (I wore a pushup to look good in the dresses I had) ...Which I stopped wearing after he saw me naked. By then theres no point. He'd seen what I really look like.
I lack alot of confidence when it comes to my body, and every time I want to go out he demands I wear a bra, nothing low-cut, nothing tight. He makes comments about not wanting people to stare at my nipples.
I wear baggy clothing around him all the time, and he still complains.

Is it required for bra fitting employees to feel your breasts without asking for sizing? I won’t name the place to slam a brand people might enjoy.. if you are curious you can DM me.. but this employee felt the need to press me boobs, and lift as a “sizing technique”
Is this a true thing and why? Should I say something to them.. is it worth it since it’s her word against mine? I understand I’m a bit petite with large breasts but.. never ever head of this before..
Please and thank you dears❤️
Am I the only woman who hates the sensation of not wearing a bra. I dont have particulary big boobs (36B) and I dont get back pain or anything like that when I dont wear a bra, I just hate the feeling of not wearing a bra so much. It feels ok to not wear a bra while lying down, so I dont sleep with a bra, but otherwise I always wear it. When I see memes saying stuff like "Finally home, time to take my bra off", Im like "what??". I cant be the only one who feels this way, can I?
Disclaimer: I'm posting this on behalf of my friend, who doesn't have reddit and doesn't plan to create an account, but said it was ok to share here.
Friend is a 40-something female living in the triangle area (NC), who frequently jogs in her suburban neighborhood. I'm sharing it here exactly as she wrote it. I found it to be a really thought-provoking interaction about how ingrained some of these issues are, even in other women.
So this woman calls out to me and I stop, and she tells me she's seen me out running a lot and her kids play out there. I'm expecting something about social distancing and am prepared to assure her that I'm being careful on that front.
But no, she asks me if I'd mind putting on a sports bra. I keep my tone light and friendly but tell her I'm not willing to do that.
So then she asks well could I avoid running in that area when her kids are out
I stay light but tell her I don't think that's a reasonable expectation. She asks me why and I tel... keep reading on reddit ➡
As the tittle says, I ordered Aomh 2 Pack Push Up Strapless in size "E".
It was a little bit small but worked out with quite a bit of finangleing to get the shape right. My two complaints:
It's super shallow
I needed it to be a tad bigger.
I currently wear 30GG and I think this bra would be a better fit on a 30FF or smaller.

So story time.
I got up at my usual time (3:55AM) and put on my running clothes for the day (panties, sports-bra, short-shorts, athletic v-neck, running shoes). I threw my breakfast/lunch in my lunch bag, picked up my pre-packed gym bag with my work clothes (socks, panties, t-shirt bra, knee-high boots, high-waisted jeans, top), and drove to work.
After I dropped my gym bag and my purse at my desk (around 4:25AM), I went into my gym bag to find my armband for my phone so that I could listen to podcasts while I run. I found the armband, but I couldn't find the top I packed for my post run workday. I swear I shuffled through the entire bag and found everything but my top. So I was faced with a choice ... run and wear my sweat soaked athletic shirt all day or run in just my sports bra and change into my athletic shirt.
I opted for option two, but I couldn't just walk through my office in a sports bra. So I had to throw on my pre-transition raincoat (I could fit like 2-3 of me i... keep reading on reddit ➡

I’m a self tap dancer and I’ve been tapping for the past year. I have videos in my post history if anyone wants to take a look out of curiosity. I decided to share my talent on another sub. Today just broke me. I got a comment from someone who told me that I need to wear a better supportive bra and I should buy a chest compression because “you never know who’s watching”. The moment I read that comment I bursted into tears. I don’t have money for chest compressions and the best supportive bras.
I was so upset. I’ve been upset for the whole day. Comments on my boobs like that trigger me. My boobs are often a source of anxiety, they don’t cause me back pain thankfully. I feel like if be happier with small boobs. I couldn’t believe someone would just comment soemthing like that publicly. Body image is a very sensitive topic especially among dancers. The person writing the comment claimed to be a dancer as well.

I know there are a lot of opinions out there on whether or not women should run in just a sports bra or stay covered up. I’ve always been in the camp that if men can run topless then women should be able to run in a sports bra without judgement. I’ve just never had the confidence to do it. I didn’t want stares to to be honked at.
But, today was so hot and sunny and it’s unbelievable how much COOLER I was without a tank top on. My run was significantly improved and I’m sure I got some looks, but I don’t care because my run was awesome.
I wear a 32D and I'm petite. Everytime I go searching for a bra or sports bra - I always find out they are marketed to be sexy! I don't want a push up sports bra, I don't want a bra that's designed to be sexy, I want a sports bra that provides support and comfort when I'm working out, running, and doing yoga!
Sorry for my bad grammar, I'm extremely frustrated after I excitedly ordered adidas's sports bra (that is highly reviewed) and it was just a bra with some push up cups. Ugh.
This is pretty self-explanatory. I was working out in my living room when I heard something on my back porch knock over. Thinking an animal was getting to some of the vegetables I had in pots out there, I quickly ran outside without thinking to put a shirt on (since I've been working out at home, I don't feel the need to put on a shirt and I'm more comfortable that way).
Found an overturned pot, put it back up, made sure everything was good and went back inside to finish my workout. I wasn't outside for more than five minutes. Well my next-door neighbor saw me out there, and I guess it made him uncomfortable. He complained to my mom, and she told me just to try not to do it again. I still think thats unfair. Even though I usually wear a shirt, its my back yard and I should be comfortable. I'm not walking around the neighborhood or anything. Plus, I'm sure he's taken off his shirt while mowing his lawn or doing yard work. My mom says to just let it go, but I'm pretty pissed about being... keep reading on reddit ➡
Apologies for throwaway.
I'm short and overweight and have massive breasts. They are soft, huge, and saggy – not attractive at all. I wear bras from a specialist shop and they can get my heavy sagging breasts to be relatively well-contained and lifted. They're not comfortable, and they're not easy to get on, but they rescue some dignity for me in every day life.
My husband and I have a close, intimate relationship. We share space, don't keep secrets, share finances, make decisions together, etc.
I get embarrassed and self-conscious about putting on these bras in front of him. There's twisting and grimacing, random fat bulges appear, I have to push and pull my breasts around to get them to sit in the cups just right, lots of tugging and adjusting until everything is good to go for the day. In my head, it's bizarre-looking and laughable. I don't even do it in front of a mirror now, because it grosses me out so much. I want this daily writhing to be private.

I may have posted about this before but it just messes with me every time I think about it.
Years ago I had a bra. It was a fantastic bra that did everything right (women know what I mean by that) but it was a random brand I found at like TJ Maxx so it wasn’t easily replaceable.
One day I couldn’t find it. I tore the apartment apart multiple times looking for it. Looked in every closet, drawer, luggage etc. My boyfriend convinced me I must have lost it while traveling and left it in a hotel room or something. Never found it.
My boyfriend and I got married, I got pregnant, we bought our first house in a different city and packed up and moved out of the apartment. A couple years after living in our house I pulled a load of laundry out of the dryer and was folding it.
At the bottom of the fucking basket
WAS THE BRA.
it’s one of the absolute weirdest things that has ever happened to me.
I had been wearing a 32DD/34D since like grade 11, I'm 5'8 and hover in the 120lb region so I'm kinda lanky and I've just always been that way. I hated my boobs and thought they made me look fat and they threw my whole lanky look off in my teens. In my early 20s, I was SO happy to find this sub and found that a comfortable bra size for me was a 30FF which was pretty life changing.
I was trying on wedding dresses and the lady asked what bra size I wear so she could put me into one of those longline strapless bras for fittings. I prefaced by saying "it's a really weird size, I currently wear a 30FF and it fits me perfectly." She was hmm-ing and haw-ing over what "normal" bra to put me in when a co-worker walking by overheard our conversation. She came up to me with a measuring tape, wrapped it over my sweatshirt and around my upper chest and bust (unasked), then said definitively "she's a 34B!" and pranced away like some super hot shit measuring tape wielding fairy.

Bras are extremely uncomfortable. Any woman would agree with me. First off, there are sweaters and jackets that are thick enough to prevent nipples from showing. And even if a woman’s nipples did show who cares? Why do people want to get triggered so badly over a female nipple? Since when has anyone fever been harmed by seeing the outline of a female nipple? I’ve seen women go outside without wearing bras and you can tell. You wanna know how many people that harms? Literally no one! The outlines of male nipples are seen numerous times through shirts but god forbid we see an outline of a female nipple! Do you seriously want women to be uncomfortable because you have this irrational fear of female nipples?
Edit: I’m not saying that all women should go braless. I’m just saying that it should be acceptable for women to be braless if they want to. Wear a bra if you want to.
The situation:I am a 17 y(f) and my mother just insisted I had to put a bra on because my dad was home. I was dressed. No, I’m not going anywhere out of the house, I wasn’t doing anything. I was sitting in my room on my phone, I’m wearing a long sleeve, plain black T-shirt.
My father was not paying attention, I genuinely believe that he has never looked at me in this way Unpopular opinion: If you do this to your child, you’re saying they aren’t safe in their own house, because you’re implying that their family members are staring at their bodies- making the teenager feel paranoid or uncomfortable. What do y’all think?
Edit: I would like to emphasize that I was sitting in my room, with a loose black T-shirt. I wasn’t running around or jumping. Literally sitting on my bed.
I just made this throwaway account to post this cause I don’t want my main account being bombarded with people asking my reasons for this unpopular opinion. As hated as it is for being horrible at sizing their models and customers, and for having a very low size range, they’re literally the only company that I can stand to wear for longer than a few minutes. They have comfy materials, multiple amazing styles, almost any style range you can choose from, and I barely ever think my boobs look bad in a VS bra. Before you say “You just haven’t found the right style/size”, I very much know what my measurements are, and every style I’ve tried that I can AFFORD has not ever worked for me in the almost year long journey I’ve had searching for even one bra that doesn’t make me feel like I’m being killed by some form of chest compressor.

I was sewing another one of my old bras when my mom walked in and suggested looking at aerie because they might have something. Now before I found this sub I was wearing a 32A which was actually a horrible fit for me because the band size is too big. After finding this sub and using the calculator I found out that I was actually a 26DD.
I had never shopped at aerie before so I checked their size chart. What even is there size chart?? For my measurements (25” underbust 30.5” bust) they would have put me in a 30A/B!I’m no bra expert I highly doubt that would be the right size considering there is literally a 5” difference between my bust and underbust.

There’s no excuse for sock people but for bras I kinda get it, I mean, maybe you don’t have pockets on your pants and you don’t have your purse. You really can’t hold it though? This being said I’m hit with bra money much more often than sock money.
The money just gets so warm and sometimes even moist from sweat if kept in either place. It’s really gross.

This weekend, I was in one of my best friend’s weddings. The bride, my friend, is diabetic and forgot her insulin when we went to the church, so technically, diabetes is the villain of this story.
No problem. I volunteered to go back to her house to pick it up. I like a mission. Me against diabetes. After a morning of bridal stuff, my adrenal glands were more than happy to kick some dust off.
The bride says the back door is unlocked, so I dash to her house, drifting the corners (in my mind), finding the apex in the road. The back door is not unlocked. No doors are opened, but I am NOT taking the L on this.
All of us bridesmaids had gotten ready at her house earlier, and one of the other bridesmaids was leaning out her window on the 2nd floor smoking. I gaze up at her window, praying that it’s still unlocked. I know this house.

When I picked up his phone, he had an email notification and so it opened his gmail when I unlocked it (relevant) I closed it and went to his photos.
As I was scrolling through his photos I guess I was just kinda browsing them, he had some cute photos of him that he’s never sent me, so I was just being nosy I guess.

So when looking online for bras, I stumbled across a Japanese bra website and fell in love with the styles they had. Sadly, they don't ship to the US. I found some on Amazon Japan that were cute but I would prefer to try and find a place in the US to buy from as shipping is expensive.

Standing- 37.5 in/ 95 cm----Leaning- 39 in/ 99 cm----Laying- 37 in/ 94 cm
During quarantine, I went nuts and turned into a wireless bra monster. I spent about $450 to find my holy grail bra (most got returned of course). I tried Sugar Candy, Bravado body silk seamless, Kindred Bravely simply sublime nursing, Kindred Bravely french terry racerback, Kindred Bravely extra soft organic cotton, Bali women’s comfort revolution wirefree, Bali women’s comfort revolution shaping wirefree, Bali comfort revolution easylite seamless wireless, Hanes ultimate women’s comfy support wirefree, and Hanes women’s cozy seamless wirefree.
I am 34H/I US size. 5’7” 145lbs. I am narrow root, projected, full on top and center full, more on the relaxed side. I am not pregnant nor breast feeding, but I wanted a comfortable wireless bra for working from home and grocery shopping. I, first, tried sugar candy’s non nursing bra and got sucked into the world of nursing bras. A lot of them accommodate bustier women and pregnant/nursing women want to be supported and be comfortable! Besid... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm so excited and my husband doesn't seem to understand, but I hope you will.
While I was pregnant early last year I quickly outgrew my bras (not talking about cup size). For those of you who don't wear them, a bra is as unforgiving as a pair of jeans. Sure there is some leeway, but if I'm gaining weight, my bra will tell me.
I bought some cheap elastic sleeping bras online, they were so comfy and stretchy! After I gave birth and started to work on losing the baby weight, I was trying on my pre-baby clothes and eyed my old bras. I loved the comfort of my sleeping bras, but while wearing them I always felt a little sloppy, like going out in sweats instead of proper clothes. I took a chance and tried a bra on. It cut into my back fat something aweful and I quickly took it off. I hid my real bras in the back of my underwear drawer, and every couple of months as I lost more weight I would try them on to see how they felt.
I wasn't planning on trying one on today. The embarrassing fact... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was on Poshmark (I know, I might as well live in a cardboard box) and all of their summer blouses show a shocking yet alluring amount of shoulder. I’d be the sickest city slicker on the block in such a blouse, but I’m pushing ~gasp~ 30.. and if anyone sees one centimeter of bra strap, they’ll think i’m a 13 year old snot-nosed runt and they’ll send me back to the eighth grade a-la-Billy Madison.
You know how people talk about the joys of whipping your bra off at the end of the work day? And then in this community, we talk about how that probably wouldn't be the case if the bra fits properly? I've been searching for ABTF for almost 2 years and dozens of bras later, I still haven't found that moment of actually feeling comfortable while wearing a bra. Forget wanting to rip it off when I get home; I want to rip it off the second I get dressed and put a shirt on.
Take this one for example. This is me wearing the Panache Envy in 34E. It is the best fitting bras I've found for my immediate projection, and I think it fits pretty dang well. It's completely in my IMF, the shape is great, my boobs don't fall out and are very happy here, etc. But I can't escape feeling like I'm wearing a straight jacket.
Even if the fit of this bra is slightly off, I don't see how that would cause the level of discomfort and annoyance I feel while wearing it.

I've now shopped twice at The Pencil Test's Portland location. Once about 8 months ago, pre pregnancy and again now at almost 19 weeks pregnant.
I can not believe to express how much I loved the store then and even more so now! My 36H sizing has definitely changed since I got pregnant and I was floored at the options I had to choose from and the prices! I wanted wire free opinions that included nursing bras and the staff gave me so many wonderful options it was hard to choose! I walked out of there today finding 3 amazing fitting bras (2 wire free and 1 wire free nursing) and can't thank the staff enough for helping me with their knowledge of their selection.
I know the Portland location is currently open for appointments and can not recommend enough that if you are in the area, book an appointment! You'll be so glad you did! I know I'm going back when I need more nursing bras. I'm already washing them so I can start wearing them!
I started trying to lose weight about a month ago. I don’t have a scale yet but remembered what worked for me last time before I ballooned back up. I’ve been managing my portions and eating around 1300-1400 calories per day with a 16:8 intermittent fasting schedule.
I told myself I wouldn’t see results for a couple of months because that’s just how the human body works. Then I put on my bra yesterday. It’s one of those SheFit ones you see on Facebook all the time (they’re great for women with larger chests, I have chronic back pain partially because of said chest). Before, the Velcro back strap would stop just barely after the center of my back.
Yesterday, it started to go under my arm.
This is huge. I’m not a tiny girl (28f, 5’4”, original starting weight estimated at 210), but that band is a good 4-5” further along my back than it used to be. The position finally started to look like what’s shown in the ads.
It’s the first win I’ve had during this journey. I just can’t believ... keep reading on reddit ➡
