I thought good sports bras had no wire, either under, or over.

I'm an actual expert "in this area". My expertise results from decades of intensive study, and practical "hands on" experience.

note:
While brassieres have long been promoted for helping to prevent sag, recent study indicates going braless may help prevent sag even better.


I would love to be an expert. Dream Job.

Talk about whistle while you work. Everyday I would do free overtime with a big smile on my face. Not an easy job for a male to get I assure you. You can offer to work for free and still get knocked back. Go figure. I want to work in this industry, but people wont give me a go. Men get so discriminated against! It's a joke!

If my body gets cut up and used to support breasts I am good with that. I reckon that beats rotting in the ground. :w00t:

I used to wonder why they thought to try whalebone... I mean... who's ever seen a whale with an hourglass figure?...

Shark Tooth Corsets did not take off too well is why.

Just a thought, perhaps all the 'drooling and panting' puts off potential employers?

It's funny...I mean, I'm ok with having boobs and all but there are times (when trotting behind my dogs, at the gym, not being able to wear little tank tops in the hot weather) that 'the girls' become problematic. When I hear the words, 'proper support' I don't think of a building or financial assistance!

I recently made a list in my blog of women I'll never spend the rest of my life with.
Now I have to make a list of dream jobs I'll never have. :(
