I seen this info commercial that was about bras. I had to quit wearing underwire bras many years ago because of dinking too much coffee. My doctor told me to wear sports bras. I love them they are pretty good. But when my husband seen this bra commercial he thought I should at least think about buying one. It looks like a good bra it looks like it would support you pretty good without the underwires. It looks like a fancy sports bra that comes down on your body a little more then a sports bra does. Well I think it would be a nice bra but I am not going to spend 60 bucks on a bra when I can get 3 for about 10 bucks! Would you spend 60 bucks on a bra?

Hi Jennyze. Those that are rich can waste their money on what they want but I am not rich have to struggle to spend every penny I spend. So I am going to get my moneys worth out of everything I buy. I won't waste 60 bucks on something I could get 9 bras for that much money enough to last me for a couple of years...LOL

I hate not wearing my bra just never was one to go without a bra. I guess it was because my mother never wore one and you wouldn't believe the sag she had. I told myself when I was young that I would never let myself go like that. Mom was like me blessed or cursed with with that part of our body large......LOL

wow i thought cysts developed in using under bras are myths? it happened in your case? that is scary because i am always using underwire bras for support and i do not like sports bra because the ones i always see here are styled differently at the back.. i would also not spend 60 bucks in one bra! that is too much...

Hi Jazel_juan. I found out after years of wearing those underwire expensive bras that it isn't good for you. Sports bras here where I live are made like a bathing suit top. I don't like those sports bras that cross at the back straps, I buy the ones that don't cross in the back they give me a lot of support and I don't have pain anymore since that doctor told me to start wearing sports bras.

I have never had an underwire bra that fit right. I pay $6- $10 for bras. I only like sports bras if they still have fasteners. I am having shoulder trouble and cannot pull over my head. I like my bras to have lots of cottony fabric.

I tell you GG I love the way my sports bras fit. They are comfortable. I haven't seen any with fasteners but sure they make them. I pay 10 bucks for 3 and they really make me feel good. What did you do to your shoulder?

Definitely NOT! 60 bucks is just too much for that. I can buy a whole lot of other stuff with my 60 dollars that I really need. I think you can really buy cheap bras with quality. You just have to look.

Hi Pennydavis and welcome to my lot. I think these ladies must be out of their minds to think that any bra is worth that much money. I get 3 good sports bras at walmart for about 10 bucks. And they are really comfortable.

What has coffee to do with underwire bras? I don't see the connection! Whatever! Here we have TV commercials for "Slimming" coffee at 68 Euros plus tax. I'm sure you wouldn't buy that either!

I developed cyst and the doctor said it was from coffee and and wore underwire bras. He told me that the coffee and the bars was causing the cyst. So I quit drink too much coffee and stopped wearing underwire bras at his suggestion.

Was there a nurse in the examining room at the time?

Hi Barehughs. Oh silly yes there was a nurse in the room. I had a great doctor when I was going through all the problems I was having at that time in my life. Nice to see you!

Hi, Sure it may be better quality but a bra is a bra it will last only as long as it last and sooner or later it will break down from just plain wear and tare on it. I don't want to spend 60 bucks for anything that won't last me at least a couple of years. I can spend about 10 bucks once every 6 months and get three bras. I can't justify spending that much money on one bra. Thanks for sharing my friend.

I have not spent that much on anything other than good shoes that do not hurt my feet. I do not pay that for jeans or even for dresses.

Hi GG. I can see spending that much on shoes after all they carry our weight all day and they need to be comfortable. I wouldn't spend that much on a dress or jeans either. I think that it is just way too much money to spend on a bra.

I abhor underwire and the only time I would pay $60 for a bra is if it was wire-free and a Victoria's Secret bra AND it was a special occasion bra. That's it.

Hi Stagnacious and welcome to my lot. I know what you mean I might pay that for something special but not for something that I would wear daily. Thanks for the sharing!

As a senior male I find this question quite entertaining! I never was a coffee drinker, and after reading this post I'm very glad of that, but on the other hand, if I had been gloriously endowed, and needed the extra support(without the underwiring) I just might spring for the $60 bra. After all one has to hold them up somehow!

Hi Barehugs. I drank a lot of coffee because I was in an accident and that was the only thing that kept me awake enough to make it through the day. The accident put me in a coma and the doctor didn't know if I would ever be able to stay awake too much after that. But I am a pretty determined person to stay healthy and to stay healthy I stay active, so I needed to stay awake. I used to spend about 60 bucks on those underwire bras, but later found out that was hurting my muscles it was keeping my own muscles from working harder to keep myself firm. If you don't use what you have then you sooner later loose it. I found that one out from my mother she was a good woman but she got lazy and that is what made her weak. I found out that coffee is good to help prevent some cancers so I still drink coffee but only a limited amount now.

hi free--man I wou ld never pay 60 bucks on a bra no matter how well it fit. thats outrageous . I have never been small enough to get 3 bras for 10 dollars. the bigger one is the more it costs.Us larger people pay so much more for bras and I think they really take advantage of us. I would so like to find a comfortable bra for myself that would fit and cost less then forty dollars. lol lol lol.

Hi Hatley. I wear a 36 DDD and I buy my sports bras 3 on a hanger for about 10 bucks. I love the way they make me feel they are so comfortable. Good luck my friend.

If the cyst is grown then it is better to give up pepsi, coke, sytric acid drinks (ya know those powdered energy drinks), chocolate and coffee. As for bra, i think why compromise on health if it is giving you any comfort, buy it.

Hi TiaSierra and welcome to my lot. I don't drink much of anything but drink gallons of water. When I was a small child the doctor told my mother to not let me drink anything other then water. I had a kidney problem back then. So I have never really drank any kind of sugar drinks. The cyst cleared up after I slowed down on coffee and stopped wearing underwire bras. Thank God. The doctor said I needed to wear sports bras then and have been wearing them for years now. Wouldn't want to wear any other kind now.
