    Getting stuck pulling off a sports bra

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    You know, small breasted women who don't wear sports bras, miss out on the experience of others getting stuck when trying to take off their sports bra.. (For troll heads, no photos. Just stories of getting stuck..)

    I guess it's because it's racerback or very tight?? Clue me in. I wish I could share unusual experiences of being small boobied....the only thing is the hassle of finding bras that fit and abit lined. Life is pretty boring otherwise for small folks. (Fine by me!) To me, spending lots of money for small bras..it's abit nuts. But hey tons of money for pretty lingerie that might fall apart, is itchy, etc.

    But getting back to sports bra question..

    I have gotten stuck. The getting stuck recently has not been from a sports bra, but in tank tops that have a shelf bra, with liner pads. There is one particular brand/style that looks really good on me, but is really, really tight to get off. I've figured it out, though, as once I find something that fits well on a small person, I tend to keep buying that brand. This is stuff I wear to the gym, not cycling.

    All the time. I get stuck in my tankini all the time too, so much that I can wear it if I'm swimming alone, I have to wear a one piece that I can pull down my body.

    Only "cure" I've found is to wait until I'm completely dry and try again, or take it off in the shower, sometimes the water lubricates things enough to wiggle out without pulling my arms out of the sockets.

    All the time, but that's when I try to pull it off when I'm sweaty. Just waiting to cool down and dry a bit really helps. To be honest, though, I often go bra-less, up here, where I have only deer and bears to see me. I'm also at an age where ... let's just say my movie star days are well behind me. Support is not much of a concern.

    On another note, I do wish someone would make a heated bra.

    Yep, when sweating and trying to remove a tight one. I have yelled out loud during the gyrations!

    Would chemical toe or hand warmers work...??

    I was thinking a battery heated vest would work nicely: https://www.amazon.com/Volt-Womens-C.../dp/B010HFULYM
