23. Amen, Bertha...
I swear, they sized me wrong, because the size they told me makes me look like an old woman. I can't find a bra that doesn't hurt. And I can't find one that will hold me up!, together!, or at all. I'm stuck in a sports bra that isn't quite right. I hate it. Have you tried something with a wider strap? They're supposed to be better.
