      This would have been a great bit of information for me a couple years ago when I first started Dressing. I sincerely hope other beginners may find this question & answer helpful. I wouldn’t wear or even consider wearing a bra in the beginning (I have NO breast to be wearing one) I was 59 when I started Dressing. I didn’t have the childhood experience of trying on mom or sisters clothing even though I grew up with a house full of them. It never occurred to me to try to wear their clothes or shoes. In the early stages of my Dressing rather than a bra I came across a bralette. It helped fill in the empty spot in my blouses. (But not a bra) then I came a cross s set of b/c filets with adhesive, which adhered to garments rather than my skin. Finally the mirror convinced me .. breast were key to the feminine presentation. I tried several types of bras. First was trying and experimenting. Some for the sex appeal (lace and strings) none really looked good and I definitely considered them too much work … then I discovered the front closure type! Yeah baby … finally! Now I wears bra filled with b/c breastforms which is just right for my build. I had no idea how much liberty Dressing, stepping past some of my closed, preset ways could be. I hope others will be experimenting until they come into their own. I’m a Crossdressing Closet Girl … my Girl is coming together 💋

      I chose padded and full cup. I think my padded bras probably give me a more natural and demure look while dressing age appropriate. I put full cup as my other choice but meant my sheer pocket bras where I can put my forms in and the nips really stand out when I am feeling a little naughty! I have just about all the styles mentioned and really love my matching bra and panty sets.

      I don’t have many bras, but the ones I do have are wirefree and more resemble the bralette. I find them comfortable to wear, but it’s very hard for me to find the opportunity to wear them much.

        Krissi; I also started with Bralettes rather than Bras. I like them because they’re somewhere between a Camisole and a Bra and very versatile.

      I choose wire-free – and essentially I mean bralette – I’m going to start wearing them every day this winter – and I have matching bikini panties for each one – excited to try them out under-dressed. I think I’m going to love them. Wish I had the courage to wear my modest breast forms for them too in public. Maybe one day 🙂

      I picked wire less as I am not a fan of the wire cutting into my chest.

      I don’t have too many bras in my collection, but my go to fave is Amolux wireless pocketed bra.

      Before I discovered Amolux, my fave was Warner, they had a very comfy wireless bra.  It fit like a glove and was a real joy to wear all day.  When I purchased bigger breastforms, the Warner didn’t cut it anymore so I went with a pocketed bra.

      I actually like most bra’s but when I really want to feel sexy I like a vintage bullet bra with an open bottom girdle with garters and stockings. I love the vintage sexy look.

      I ended up voting for what bras I find most comfortable rather than my favourite bra. Hence seamless.

      Original favorite was Playtex 18 Hour. Good quality and good construction, plus the wide padded Straps are very nice. However, the cup sizes stop short for me such that the center panel stands away from the sternum (a no-no for proper fit). However, I still wear them sometimes.

      Next I tried Glamorise as they had larger cup sizes. The construction didn’t seem to be as sturdy as the Playtex ones. After several years, my Playtex bras are still on the first hook. For the Glamorise I have to get to at least the 2nd hook to get a similarly snug fit. That bottom support panel is also a bit of a pain as it is easy to get the forms between the panel and the outer lace. Correct location is to have the forms behind the panel. I wound up stapling the panel in place to prevent incorrect placement.

      Current fave is Goddess underwire. Good quality and construction, as well as a snug 1st hook fit. However, the straps seem to not want to stay in place regardless of how I adjust them. They are comfortable, but don’t seem to have sufficient traction. Present solution is one of those clear plastic attachments that draw the straps together in the back. While this works well, it requires that my wife fasten and unfasten it for me, so I have to make sure that she’s around, not napping, etc.

      Yes, I have favourite styles. I also have a favourite bra. My breasts are my own, grown by me from seed. Like all the women in my family, I don’t create much shade. So my favourite bra is the one that I can fill. Simples.

      Totally agree Carla, I love, love, love Glamorise front closer bras. They fit me very well, show a bit of cleavage and the straps stay put far better than any of my other bras!

      My current go to bras are Bali Lace Desire underwire with prett lace trim on the cups as well as the. I have this bra in six colors and love the way it looks, feels and the way it wears. I wear a 42B and breast enhancers whenever I can. Generally, I’ll wears bras daily in the late fall to early spring.

      I wear back closure. Leave them done up all the time and step into it and wiggle over my hips; put on before panties. My wife had her’s undone, does tt up at the front then twists it around so that the closure is at then back. What performance. We wear the same type bra on date nights out; his and her’s.

      Mariene,

      Sounds like I put on my Bra the same way as your wife does as my SOGGF instructed me.  Saying it is the correct  and proper way to do it with the LEAST AMOUNT of damage to the bra.

      ALWAYS WITH BRA CUPS UPWARDS!  (especially if  bra is a padded or molded cup bra)

      1.  Place UNCLIPPED Bra Back Band  at waist level with Back Clips at Navel
      2. Clip Bra Back Strap clips securely
      3. Twist Bra Cups around Forward at waist level
      4. Carefully place one arm,  thru respective bra shoulder strap
      5. Carefully raise same arm up to pull bra shoulder strap and respective bra cup up, using opposite hand to place cups carefully over respective breast.
      6. Repeat for Steps 4 & 5  for other arm.
      7. Then pull back strap down slightly if need to put breasts (forms) correctly in bra cups.

      My favorite Lingerie Brand:  SOMA Intimates

      My favorite BRA :  STUNNING SUPPORT  (underwired) “Balconette”  style  back closed

      I have the following matching panties:

      1. Floral High Leg Brief
      2. Floral Lace Retro Brief
      3. Floral Lace Back Hipster
      4. Floral Lace Back Bikini
      5. Microfiber Fine Damask with Lace Bikini     in  Medium Slate Grey and  SHADOW  Color

      Color:  SHADOW (basically a light Navy Blue with touch of grey)

      Well my old standby is a Victoria’s Secret 36-C front closing bra into which I sewed ankle socks filled with one cup of red lentils. I bought it at Value Village and years later it still smells a bit of Givenchy…For the right look on occasion I’ll slip in some fake nipple forms.  They have the right weight and a little jiggle and they easily shape to whatever top I’m wearing.  It feels really natural.

      That said, when you go out to stores to try on dresses, swimwear etc. a weighted/filled bra, or  breastforms   aren’t the best idea. For that I wear my new fave: a 36-C  read with black lace HELLO SUGAR  bra from La Senza! It is amply padded with underwires, it stays in place and looks great. I don’t need any breastforms with it and I can easliy push up a little moi flesh for cleavage. But because  it is so light I can ditch the shoulder straps when trying on strapless or spaghetti straps gowns and other sexy stuff without my boobs falling and sagging all over the place.

      It’s laying there on the computer desk right now just begging me to put her on!

      Gotta’ go..you know!

      I love all of my bras. They’re all full cup, padded/push-up, underwire styles. I have one that I wear the most; it’s a Vassarette extreme plunge push-up underwire in black with lace covering the cups and extends up the straps size 38C. At first I didn’t think I’d like it when I bought it, the cups were smaller compared to the bras I had already had. However since most of my dresses are v-neck wrap style, the Vassarette turned out to be the perfect bra to wear. The bra doesn’t show at the lowest point of the neckline. I also use silicone breastforms in my bras.

      I measured myself around the chest and I was 40 inches. I ordered a 40 B because I figured I was a flat guy so why be a flat chested girl. The real eye opener was when I ordered breast forms. When I put those forms in it was one of the exhilarating experiences of my life. There feelings were…just incredible.

      I always go with front closure. I don’t like all this having to reach around with the typical bra that closes in the back.

        Memo Liz Johnson,

        I have already posted on this topic, but wanted to back up your comments about underwire bras. Yes I have soft cups for my 18aa “moobs”, but when in “proper Caty mode”, I would not wear anything other than an underwire.

        They hold my breast forms just right and of course the lacier and more colourful the better. Especially if I have the panties to match.

        Equally “femme” are the full cup underwire bras I have for my slightly larger, (but still C cup forms). (I’m a greedy girl… I have 3 sets of breast forms….)

        Happy (bra) dressing

        Caty Ryan

      Not keen on balcony bras – the forms fall out when you bend over.

      Crop tops not my thing with a hairy tummy, and I haven’t found a wireless that keeps the girls in order.

      Padded are nice and perky, and longline/Triumph Doreen give a fantastic shape, if a bit static.

      I love the really stretchy wired ones. They give a reassuring bounce that you can feel, and are really comfy even with no forms in. They collapse down well, so are undetectable under a jumper.

      I love bras!

      Love Laura

      I’m still searching for the “perfect” bra; but at the moment, I’m really happy with a front-close, lacy bralette I recently found. Don’t prefer them, but an underwire bra makes my girls just barely adequate to get by without padding.

      I love Glamorise front closure underwire bras style #9245. I like unlined cups so my nipples can stick out and show better than using padded bras. I do have a few padded bras that I do wear with some tops though. I currently wear a 44B and fill the cup completely. I tend towards black lace and white lace colors and have found front closure a better fit. The Glamorise is my go to everyday bra the majority of the time.

      My fave is a Prima Donna Madison 42D.  So comfortable I forget I’m wearing it.  I also have several bras by Simone Perele and Chantelle size 40E.  Also very nice.  I’m fortunate I can afford these brands.  They’re pricey.

      Admittedly very new to the bra game (unless you count “borrowed” and horribly-undersized ones I couldn’t stop myself from squeezing into over the years 😉 ) but I’ll have to say my favorite so far is my new padded convertible bra… largely if I’m honest because it probably fits me better than the other stuff I’ve ordered online (still not brave enough to shop in-store) but also because it’s so me.  Gorgeous black lace over a cream background, no silicone, just stays up through good old-fashioned elastic.  Closest I’ve gotten to natural cleavage is wearing it with my forms and a silicone sticky bra… though I’ll likely cave and buy some enhancers soon as the forms are just a bit too bulky for a truly realistic look.  Looking forward to actually doing the full body shave and trying for the whole nine yards!

        Val, you can get bra extensions for undersized bras, also I’ve extended mine with either paperclips, large rubber bands or both. Also, measure your chest size with a tape measure, to get your proper size, Luckily for crossdressers, cup size is whatever you what it to be!

        Hello, Val’sheril Starsong,

        Find a lingerie store that measures males. Phone or email the store. That way you will get you ‘bust’ size and be able to find your right bra. I went to a store a few weeks ago, (in male mode), after a bra I saw online. When I looked in the store, I could not find it. The two young female sales staff were very helpful, courteous and respectful. and I was able to find an alternative bra. Each time you shop in store for women’s clothing, or lingerie, you gain more confidence. Hint, know what item/s that you want to buy, the size/s. That way, you don’t draw attention to oneself. Happy shopping.

        Marie

      I could not help myself. I went to a department store today, (it’s the one where I purchase my lingerie, nighties and dresses). I bought myself two more crop top bras 1 with removable pads and one without. Also bought 4 pair lace panties, assorted colours. I could not find the crop I saw online. The two young sales assistants looked online on the store’s website. The girls were very helpful, and I was able to find alternative sports crop bras. After my purchases, I THANKED them for their help. Another positive experience in male mode And it made me feel good. They don’t see me as someone to call security for.

      May I ask you all a few questions?

      Do you buy women’s clothes or lingerie in male mode?

      Are you confident in buying women’s clothes, lingerie in male mode?

      There is no need to feel nervous when in the women’s lingerie/clothing section. Write down on paper or smartphones nowadays the item/s, sizes, colours etc, that you want to buy. This will give you a bit more confidence. Do not be afraid to ask the sales staff for help. That is why they are there for, Customer Service.

      I have quite-a-few long line Exquisite bras.  Many women complain that they make their breasts look too pointed but I guess, I’m the exception.  I also have several underwire bras in my collection.

      I prefer Bali or Felina, if I want “pretty”.
      If I want “serviceable”, Olga, Playtex, Hanes for her, or Fruit of the Loom are great.
      Fruit of the loom cotton bras are the best! They disappear under your top, & are so comfortable!

      My favourite bras are made by Bali or Maimadenform. My choice of coloure is usually a variant of red, blue, or green. Ive started choosing the bras that snap in front because of shoulder problems.

      I LOVE bras! I wear a bra all day everyday under my male polo tee shirts. I won’t go anywhere without a bra on. I love shopping for, trying on, and buying new bras.

      Sometime back, I found a wonderful little bra shop, that specializes in mastectomy bras and forms. The owner is a wonderful lady who is very knowledgeable, and very helpful. She helps me try on new bra styles, and forms. She gave me a great deal on two little silicone forms that I use just to help fill up my cup.  So, for the past eight months or so, I only buy, and wear bras (with little pockets) that have been properly fitted, just for me! I have about six new “favorite” bras!

      I do have a fav cup bra, it’s a smooth full figure underwire and adequately holds my forms. It fits great and I love the color-black with multi colored polka dots. As far as how often I wear it that depends on what I am wearing.

      I wear full cup underwired bras when wearing “teardrop” shaped forms because they enclose the forms completely and hold them against the chest better.  I have different cup sizes depending on what size breasts i fancy at the time (i have a g cup bra for use with my “h” forms when i am in weather girl Carol Kirkwood (fellow Brits will know who i mean) mood.

      I also have balcony bras for wearing with my “pert”  i.e. rounded, 2xl, 3xl and 4xl forms.  The 4xl forms (38 “f” cup)  are particularly good for getting that jiggle under a loose fitting blouse.

      My favourites though are my Gossard Glossies sheer bra’s.   They are stretchy, amazingly supportive, and see thru, and work well with sheer tops and nighties. To my mind these give the most natural look to most forms.

      Hi Marie,

      For about two years now, I’ve been a big fan of the pocket bra. My current favorite is the “Amoena Mara Molded Foam Wire Free Bra” (Amazon). I have two of these, one in 40B and another in 40C (for when I feel the need for a bit more bosom). Of course, I would never wear any bra without silicone forms.

      In a non-pocket bra, I like the Playtex Secrets Undercover Slimming with Shaping Foam Underwire in 40C (also Amazon). To me, at least, it gives me a nice shape with 2XL silicone triangle forms, but does not hold the forms as secure as I’d like, so to avoid “form drift”, I wear a shaping camisole over it to firm things up a bit.

      I have also tried two longline pocket bras from Jodee (mail order). I really like the tummy slimming effect the longline gives me, but the cups have seams that show through snug-fitting tops. I really like the “smooth” look, but I never could find a longline with seamless cups.

      I also have a “Sheer Pocket Jiggle Bra” from Glamour Boutique, but it’s so light it can’t seem to handle the 2XL silicone forms — the cups seem to “hang loose” (but it really does jiggle!).

      Also wanted to say that bras (with forms) are my most coveted lingerie item.

      I have only recently discovered full cup undewired bra’s and I love them to bits. Naturana in size 38C’s which fit me like a dream with small forms and are my current fav’s though I can also move to a 40B in other brands and particularly soft bra’s.

      I also have some cheap bra’s bought from an Amazon (spit) trader which fit nice in a smaller cup size and fit well without forms. As somebody on here noted, being able to fill the cups of a bra with your own breast tissue is sublime.

      Take care girls.

      Hugs

      Anne-Marie

      I wear padded underwire bras from Swedish chain store Lindex without breast forms. My own bust is between 36A and 36B, measuring 31 inches below bust and 35 inches across the nipples. If I want to go larger and show some cleavage, I use a self adhesive silicon bra to pull my breasts tightly together and then a padded push up bra upon that, giving me a realistic looking C-cup.

      I wear a 38E and my favourite brands are freya and eloumi. One in particular is a burgundy spacer bra, it is seamless underwired and feels slightly padded even though it’s not. My most absolute favourite is a full cup longline bra which holds a little more of my tummy in place and also has matching briefs and suspender belt, yummy look when worn.

        I was looking for the strapless option. My problem with straps is achieving a natural level of breastline. My fave bra is a strapless that I was fitted for in the store. The shop assistant saw that I was a bit lacking in the boob department and had some broadish shoulders, so found me the ideal combo of size and padding.

      Hi Marie, (From the Big Island!!)

      1/. Fayrefrom Coral Underwires, ( I have at least six and all in different colours, (except white), which I regard as bland and boring.) I wear these with my breast forms and they are very very comfortable

      Somehow Bendon the distributor did too, cos as popular as they were, they trashed the brand via insufficient stock

      It’s a touch “off topic”, but the matching Coral panties are ever so comfy, “down south” as well!!

      2/. Simone Perele “Full Cup Underwires”. (Bought on clearance I hasten to add!!! If you ever use Sky bus when in Melbourne arrive early and go up to the SP store in the Sthn Cross DFO, you are almost guaranteed a bargain)… I have a lovely Wacoal set too, that cost $$, but was my “souvenir”  of a trip to Canada a couple of years back. I use these in another set of forms which are slightly larger than the “Coral” ones, so the Full Cups come into their own here.

      3/. I have 3 16A underwires, with extenders, for “winterwear”. IE I underdress in bra cami and panties under heavier winter clothes and enjoy having my own “breast tissue” (almost!!) fill the cups

      Happy bra dressing

        Hello Cynthia (skippy1965), Sorry about leaving out Strapless. I was writing from memory.  It’s the first Poll I have done for the Group. Oh, I forgot. I also have adhesive bras in sizes A B & C.

      After A long search I have found the perfect bra, it’s an Olga 3502 satin bra. I  now have eight in many colors, they are so comfortable I forget I am wearing A bra. The under wire is padded and the cup fabric is soft as melted butter A dream to wear. I also like Wacoal and chantelle  but my Olga’s are my main choice.

      Hi Marie

      There only 2 types of bra I do not have and they are the crop-top and the balcony. As to a favorite Bra type, that would be a tuff call. I have so many and that can be overkill. The sad part is I may have change sizes. I wear a 40 b or c right now and it is a little to tight. 42b goes real nice with my size 6 Breastform. If I go to 42c then I will have to buy a size 7 Breastform. I will waite on that for now. That means a couple hundred in new bras. A little at a time I guess!

      Love Ya,
      Vicki E.
