Happens to me A LOT. I have a huge chest, my bra rubs and I get rashes/sores. It sucks.

That happens to me and it does go in cycles, weird. I try to buy shorter under wires or soft under wires and wear those the most. I have a few non wired ones, but I keep those for the days when I am not leaving the house because they are really not that supportive.

Oh no! Would getting measured for a different size help?

Since I got pregnant even a sleep bra causes me discomfort and pain around my ribs. I try to take it off as much as poss but I have a Dirty Delete chest now so need one to leave the house haha!

Victoria secrets is notorious for not fitting larger breasted women well, so it might still be a sizing issue.  I have a larger chest, and I found that if I’m wearing the right size bra it doesn’t rub or leave crazy red marks.  The only time I have a problem like that now is when the bra gets older and stretches out so it no longer fits properly and then it does start to rub and irritate my skin.

I am SO glad I’m not the only one… not that I would want anyone else to have to go through the annoying irritation and ungodly sight, but it just makes me feel A LITTLE better.

I’m currently wearing a 30G, but I’m pretty sure I’m bigger on both ends now that I gained my weight back (probably more of a 32H or something).  A few years ago (probably when they had a growth spurt), I noticed the skin underneath the girls was red and almost flaky.  Just looked very irritated.  Didn’t get super itchy, but sometimes it did.  I talked to my doc about it, and she prescribed me an anti-fungal cream with steroids in it.  Using it as prescribed, it would go down, but never go completely away.  I think it’s just something I’ll have to live with.  It’s more of an eye-sore these days.

If it’s that painful, I would ask your doc about it.  I would also go to a better bra store and get properly measured.  I was wearing a 34Dirty Delete for the longest time, wondering why my straps were falling down all the time and I was falling out of everywhere…

I have this problem too… I pretty much have permanent red marks under my boobs now from bras. My SO actually asked me the other day if they were scars and wanted to know what happened…
