Within a period of about two months I went from “perfectly happy in my underwire bras” to “can’t bear the things”. The wires poke me under the arms and the bands just hurt. Why?
I tried using a band extender, and it didn’t help. The bras in question were about four months old when they began to bug me. I had worn the same model in the same size for several years beforehand.
I’m 35. Hadn’t gained weight. Not light-boned and have always had a high-calcium diet, so osteoporosis seems unlikely. I do have mild scoliosis near the level of the bra band, but isn’t that a fixed thing after childhood?
Maybe I’m just getting uppity in middle age.
