Bras are the second thing that comes off as soon as I'm at home (shoes being the first)...

Yep, same for me Chrissi!  I can't wait to take the damn thing off.  Growing up, I remember a friend's mom telling us we should wear bras even while sleeping! She always did because she had the idea that she could defy gravity as she aged by wearing a bra 24 hours a day.

Did yall ever try the line of bras by Olga?  Those are the most comfortable ones in the world.  (Of course, the line got discontinued. :(  But when I heard it was going to go, I stocked up.) 

But in general, not every bra has to have underwire and all that.  If you try on different brands, you can find some comfy ones.  Warner's and Playtex bras are really comfortable.

I think the humidity where you live makes a big difference.  Here in Colorado, you feel your bra less.  When I lived in the humid Southeast US, bras could feel "sticky".

I'm small too.  But when I run, go down stairs, or jump, it feels much better to be wearing one!

Ah, how I envy you! I also hate those damned things. I never wore one before my first child. The first bra I ever bought was a nursing bra. But now I am some sizes bigger in every department ( :laugh:) and have to wear them. :P
Bras are the second thing that comes off as soon as I'm at home (shoes being the first), and in winter I often skip them completely.

Same with me, Chrissy.  First off shoes then bra quickly to follow.  I never wore a bra except to work before my child was born.  For some reason after she was born I need the support.   ???  Underwires and all!  It was awful.

Today I where only sports bras.  I wear them everyday except when Im not going out.  Then its a tee shirt and shorts with NO bra and NO shoes!  ::)

Do any of you ladies take HRT? 

I started HRT going on my second week now.  My night sweats have decreased until today when I woke up at 4:30am.  Not a good day to loose some important early morning hours of sleep since Im leaving today to go out of state.

HRT has helped me sleep the whole night through..  I was waking up at ungodly hours of the early morning.  like anywhere between 2:30 am and usually 4.  Then couldnt get back to sleep until a late morning quick cat nap

Im still hot all the time.  Not really dripping wet hot flashes, I just feel hot all the time.  I have to dress really comfortably.  Now that its summer (here in FL its already summer)  I choose to wear skirts with tank tops and sandals

Its funny, but the slightest bit of cold makes my teeth chatter.  Its like one extreme to the next with me. 

SO far im liking HRT.  It seems to be adjusting well with me.

Those hot flushes WILL go Dev......just give it a bit more time.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Absolutely.  Annually, every year, without fail.

And mammograms...at least every other year after you're 40.  Your doctor may advise more often or earlier based on your family history.  Do it.  No excuses.  It's inconvenient, but do it anyway.

While you're at it, ask your OB/GYN about the HPV vaccine.  It's mostly only being given to preteens and teens now, but many scientists think that is not adequate.

About hot flashes...I get them every once in a while. I've had them off and on for the last five years. When they occur at night, it's usually a good thing because I keep my bedroom on the cold side. Just throw off the covers and the problem's solved!

One time I was walking the dog and was puzzled because all the people I saw were wearing jackets. Then I realized that it was cold outside!! I hadn't noticed!

The way I deal with insomnia is just to keep to my regular schedule, building up a sleep debt of a few hours, and then I hit the hay a little earlier and sleep 10-11 hours to pay it back. This works better for me than giving up an hour or two everyloving night.

Once, I took progesterin several years ago for heavy bleeding, but its benefits wore off after a year or two and I just lived with it. I can't take estrogen at all,  it gives me high blood pressure.
May 2019 be better for us all.
