I went to a breast cancer specialty shop and got fitted for a mastectomy bra, which is basically a grandma bra with some lace and no underwire. My insurance paid for the un-sexy brassiere, and I never wore it. I just could not have thick straps on my shoulders - I felt too aged. One day at Urban Outfitters, while waiting for my twelve year old friend to pick something out, I tried on several bras and this style fit me well and has sex appeal! The lace triangle cups my left breast (with the expander) gently, and it gives my right breast just enough lift. I got them in a few colors - of course red!. Who knows if I'll ever be able to wear the sexy, expensive lingerie I've spent years investing in, but for now, these come close.
