I have seen many of us farmgirls posting about bras and how they are not that healthy to wear. It seems the last few years, no matter what I tried, any bra regardless of price seemed like a torture device, so uncomfortable, but girls, some of my clothes NEED a bra underneath. I find most bras very hot, and get too hot for camisoles under everything. I think I might be between sizes too, because 36 seemed too big, and 34 too tight and uncomfortable.

I found these by accident, "Coobies". I was so frustrated and thought, "why not try them?" I love them! They are so comfortable that I forget I have them on, and are not as hot as a camisole. Under lower-cut things they look like a cami with lace. I thought I would pass the info on, because I sure do like mine. I have had them since February and wear them everyday. I have two white, a pink and a black. I bought them when they had a by one get one sale. I hand wash them (I take the "cups" out first) and line dry. They are holding up very well. I thought I'd pass the info on in case anyone else has been on a hunt for something different.

I think the website is shopcoobie.com

Were you named after Lisa Marie Presley? Sounds suspious. I had a beautiful goat named Lisa Marie a few years ago. Love the name.

So glad to hear! Also, Kohlís carries a new one by Olga that is similar. My daughter is large busted and she and I both love them and are comfortable, too. Still love the Coobies, as well!

I just ordered two. My biggest beef with my current bras is the straps fall down and I keep having to reach in and correct it. Another is the chaffing of the under wires.

Nicole,
They do have a size chart but it is only small-large. They do have for fuller sizes but I don't know that a real full figured gal could wear them. I find this to be very comfortable and though I considered myself average, I am glad I bought the large in the fuller size. It is a bit different putting it on. LOL

I still really like them.

I just received mine today so haven't tried it yet. Thing only thing I can say right off is that I don't like padding in mine so those will be the first things I take out. Handy that they are removable. It does say they can be machine washed on the gentle cycle so that is a plus.

Daizy, the website is www.shopcoobie.com. I believe you can also get them at Amazon but I don't know if retailers carry them.

I buy undies in April so I am going to search for these and give them a try. It gets really hot down here in the summer and I work mostly outside. A bra needs to support my girls but also be cool. I am rough on my bras and they go in the washing machine too. A girl still wants to feel pretty, right?

I found them on Amazon but they only have small medium large, etc. How do you figure out which size fits?

So glad I stumbled across this topic! I have a special needs daughter who cannot do buttons, zippers, snaps much less do the hooks on a bra. All the sport bras that looked supportive enough were racerback and I don't like how the bra straps show. But I ordered one of these for her and it's working well. Thanks!

I have been looking for a solution for eliminating under wire bras. So is this a one size fits all type? For us full figure ladies, not sure if it would fit. I have tried several others and nothing fits properly with out the wire.
churunga Posted - Apr 08 2016 : 2:14:23 PM
Thank you so much Nicole. This is exactly what I was looking for. I haven't worn a bra for about a year excepting formal occasions. I am tired of digging under my shirt to pull up a strap and feeling the elastic scratching around my rib cage. I have the beginnings of sag and sweat collections there and gets really smelly. I had gotten some stretch lace camisoles but they just bunched up underneath and wouldn't stay put. This looks to be an excellent solution to all my boobie problems.

Betty, no, that's why I like them. Each side has its own cup, with a little padded cup liner inside that is removable for washing. Very comfortable. I forget I am wearing it, but my clothes have shape and I don't feel exposed like going braless.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Most of time when I get the "soft" bras, it seems there is no separation in the cups. Are these like that?
