    Bra Issues

    Hi. I'm a C5 Quad and am having issues where my bra won't stay put. I went for a fitting but if I spasm or lift my arm a lot the edges rise. It's frustrating because I can't fix it myself. I resorted to sports bra's but there not flattering. Any suggestions?

    I know exactly what you mean. Don't have any really good suggestions, but just recently saw something on tv called the Ahh bra. Looked interesting. Here's the site:

      Try a bra with a wider band under the cups. You want the band snug, but not too tight. See how you do with a racerback style. It keeps straps from falling off your shoulders by design.

          Yeppers. Go down a band size and up a cup size.

            A well fitted bra should not rise, even with a couple of spasms, so try to find a good store where they can help you to find one that fits you.

                  I like the camis with support in them. They won't be enough if you are busty though. I am a B cup, and they do the trick most of the time. The added benefit is that they are very long these days, so they stay tucked in to my pants, even with multiple transfers.

                    I like the Bali longline style of bra.

                      is it possible the spasms may be triggered by tight bra band?
                      i'm a woman with c5 incomplete sci from 1970.
                      several years ago i starting having autonomic dysreflexia symptoms that were being triggered by pressure from clothing and jewelry. it wasn't an immediate onset of symptoms, but after several hours of wearing anything tight that put pressure on my skin ( a bra, an elastic waistband, ring, watch) i'd start to get the pounding headache and the flushed skin that precede a full a.d. episode. as soon as i removed the tight items, the symptoms would stop.
                      i looked for a long time and finally found i could tolerate wearing a cotton nursing bra by lamaze, in a size larger than i would normally wear.
                      it provides adequate support, but not too much pressure on my skin, is comfortable for all day wear.
                      a side benefit is that it slips on easily over my head and arms and is much easier to
                      put on and take off, plus it stays cool, unlike most bra fabrics.
                      very comfortable, wish i'd known about this bra when i was actually nursing my two children, 21 and 18 years ago... ; )

                        Some bras now have a thin transparent "rubbery-band" material along the lower band that does a great job. I no longer think about my bra throughout the day because it stays put.
