I'm so glad to find this 'board' and feel better knowing I'm not the only one dealing with this. I had a lot of rib and shoulder pain and finally had a breast reduction. It didn't fix me. My ribs hurt the referred pain gave me a headache and I got a stomach ache too, from the band. My GI doc suggested fibromyalgia but early last year I got diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. Maybe that's it. Who knows? Shipped hundreds of dollars worth of bras to my sister and have another hundred dollars worth in my drawer right now.
I am having success with a Bestform nursing bra, cheap and from Walmart. The back stays down and the band in front rides up off my ribs. My friend just recommended a Coobie bra, which I just ordered from Amazon. It has great reviews, but we'll see. Take care everybody.View Thread
