Title: My First Elomi Charley Stretch Lace
Post by: MychalBloodwing on November 02, 2021, 05:19:13 PM
So, I'm officially an Elomi Charley believer! I got my first one delivered today using Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy. I figured I was a 38D but also ordered a 38DD just to see how it fit. Nope, DD is too big. So I'm officially a 38D. Here are the three sides for you to see, and I included one of me wearing it under a Lands End Women's Long Sleeve Polo shirt.

Thank you, bustymale. I like the feel of lace underwire bras.

I like the better support, shaping, and uplift I feel with an underwire bra. I also like the fit  of lace cups, as they seem to adjust well to my breast size,  assuming of course, that I have gotten the right cup size to start with ha ha.  I do, however,  have to be careful about nipping out in a lace bra, so, depending on the top, I may use nipple petals. Do you and your wife ever discuss the various styles of bras and what works for each of you?

Unfortunately, my wife doesn't want to talk about my breasts and/or bras. She accepts that I have boobs and need bras, but turns a blind eye in that she doesn't want to have discussions about them. She accepts my need to buy women's clothing because of how ill-fitting men's are on my feminine shape, but I make sure not to push any of her buttons by choosing non-masculine colors...even for lounging around the house in tops and/or bottoms.

MB your breasts are basically invisible contained in that bra under that polo shirt. That must give you a lot of confidence in public.

The bras I'm wearing lift up my 38Ds so that they basically look like well-developed pecs. Without a bra my nipples strongly poke through my shirts and my breasts are definitely noticeable.

 Plus, the bra holds your breasts nicely in place avoiding all that noticeable movement that draws attention to your bust

Yes, exactly, bustymale! My chest draws more attention without a bra than my wearing one. (https://abs.twimg.com/emoji/v2/72x72/1f60e.png)

There are more than a few guys out there that look unsightly with their braless breasts bouncing around. If they only realized that it is so much more tasteful to keep them under control with a bra on.

I have had two of my female friends who know I wear a bra admit to me, even as a male, presenting male, I look better when wearing a bra than when I don't.

As I've lost more weight, it seems that my waist has shrunk, but my breasts have stayed the same size. So, when I had to go down a shirt size from a men's Large to a men's Medium, my girls became even more visible when I'm not wearing a bra (see photo).

Your breasts are very noticeable, perky, and feminine liking in that top.

Thank you, SideSet & bustymale! There's no denying my girls, whether I wear a bra or not. So, I prefer to shape them in the most attractive way. I'm full on bottom, so I'm looking for a balcony bra with strong side support.

So nice to know what types of bras work best for you.  Many women don’t

I too prefer ( and need) side support myself. I am wideset and my arms seem to forever be hitting the side of my breasts as I walk and it gets annoying after a while so the girls have to be pulled forward some to get out of the way of travel of my arms. I find that bras with external support bands and/or internal slings work the best. They also give my breasts a better appearance and some projection as well, but for me, my chest is more comfortable as well in this configuration. They feel very lifted, supported and contained and give me a lot of self confidence when in public.

Johndoe1, you accept you have breasts like a woman and need to wear a bra like one.  You have studied bras and what you need and want from a bra.  You didn’t say the word, but it sounds like you look for nice shaping form your bras, do you?  How about modesty, nipple concealment?

You are right I do. For years I was so afraid of what people might say or do if I wore a bra for support of my larger than normal chest. But after I started, the thing that surprised me the most was how people stopped acknowledging them either verbally or visually. I do want them to be shaped and modesty is always top of mind and why I wear peddles if my bra is unlined so I don't nip out. Oh sure, people will still try and catch a side glimpse, usually women who are more than accepting the vast majority of the time, but I am not feeling them jiggle and jossle and it gives me peace and it all has stemmed from treating them as women do. Our breasts are no different than a woman's.

 I think all the jiggling and nipping out draws attention and bras stop that

Definitely I find that with a bra controlling these issues and the overall improvement in my out line with a bra on, I just feel more confident in public with wearing a bra than if I were braless. I think just as most women would feel conspicuous without a bra.

I know several women who publicly complain about wearing bras but they are never without wearing one nor would they consider not wearing a bra. It just wouldn't happen.

I would have to agree also.  Holding and containing the movement is first and for most.  Shaping and nipple concealment is next.  I have heard it said also, I cant wait to get this thing off.  You should try one.  Well here we are and it feels right and looks much better.

Most women (according to expert fitters) are wearing the wrong size bra, and don't understand how to measure themselves.

And then there is us. We have breasts like women.  Wear bras like women.  And know more about bras than most women.  Quite impressive, if I do say so myself
