Question for the void, as Peaches would say: OK, it's been a while since we've had a b&b discussion, and I don't want to activate any of those old threads. Because... I have a bra question that probably wasn't covered, and I don't want to wade through six zillion posts to find out. so. I have recently had two bras go belly-up on me in about a 45 minute period: their cheesy plastic clasps broke. I have questions for Us -- We Who Wear Bras -- about the relative merits of front closure vs. back close, and the kind of bra that's really low cut for a plunging neckline vs "full coverage". Not to mention that I am among the boob-challenged (small, rather than large). I also want convertible straps. Anyone have a suggestion for a front close, secure clasp that won't break soon, convertible strap bra of reasonable cost, "lightly padded" (so no show through iykwim -- every man in my gym knows when I'm cold)? If I have to go to a back close, I will, but I have to be able to wear it with this: http:// ww w. softsurroundings. com/P/Ballerina_Tee_I/ which is my go-to top for lessons. I'd prefer not to buy an $88 Boob Job http: // www. bitasaviss.com/bitasaviss/product_info.php/products_id/64. On second thought, that $88 Boob Job is looking pretty good ATM. Do y'all think the pleats on it would interfere with the Ballerina Tee? The thought of buying an $88 bra sticks in my craw; the last bra I bought cost $12. Then again, its clasp broke. Suggestions? TIA, O Void.
