The strapless bra is DEFINITELY not an option. Even my sister (who knows I've ditched the bras) who is probably a 32C said it wouldn't stay up on her, so there's no way it would on a 38DD! That's my biggest concern since we live in a very conservative "retirement" community, though there are 50/50 working and retired here now. Thanks for the idea. I'll give that a try.
