Ok so I usually just wear a sports bra for compression...none of the compression bras are breast shaped, and I am still DD.

Does anyone wear one that does not totally smush the gals down?

Cookie, Sassybax is pricey, but it works well to compress without smushing:

The straps are just a tad too narrow for me, so I've used those velcro shoulder thingys that make the strap wider over the shoulder. (Gee, that was sure a great description!Tongue out)

Just a thought,

I ment to mention that I found something that will work for the plus size woman.  Catherines sells it in their store and some online just not the one I bought.  It is made by Serenada.  I am a D to a small DD and I was shocked that it held me up like a bra.

This is it.  I took a closer look and this picture is misleading.  lol  It is a camisole and the model has black panties on.
