So you type "wow" to be first, then edit your comment to try and get thumbs up. Wow, talk about desperate needs leading to desperate measures.

I'm genuinely curious: does this happen to bras that are the proper size? Cuz when I'm at Walmart, I sometimes see obese monsters who are obviously wearing bras too small for them; it's easy for me to imagine those bras snapping them running off to puke and kill themselves.

25 - yes, it can happen. I've had it happen once with a bra I had bought the week before - apparently it wasn't properly stitched where it closes (i got a refund). I've also heard it can happen to older bras, and judging by OP's financial situation I guess the latter might be the case here.

25- It can happen with any bra, but it's more common with improperly fit or worn out ones. Most women don't realize their bras aren't the right size for them. OP- I don't believe you can't afford a bra. You have a job (even if it's a low-pay). Wal-Mart sells bras for around $10. Sports bras cost even less (like 3 for $14). Sacrifice a little and pick one up. It won't be pretty or fancy, but it'll hold your boobs in.

Some people don't have an extra $10 lying around when they have to pay for rent, utilities and food. When all your money goes into those three things it's hard to find a place to skim money from.

Sometimes, you just don't have enough money to scrape together for anything other than rent, gas, and food. Sometimes you have to drop one of those things off the list too, and it's usually food. You clearly have never lived paycheck to paycheck. I completely believe she can't afford one. Take it from someone who has been there.

I have never even seen a $10 dollar bra even at wal-mart and I know because I was trying to find a cheap one. the lowest they have is about $15.00. how long has it been since you bought a bra?

Well if I needed a pair of underwear and the lowest was 15 dollars and I was living pay check to pay check I would cut out some food. You can live weeks without food and I've survived days without food anyways. Anyone can, but the real question is, do they have the motivation to do it. Well in a situation like that, they sure as hell should.

I agree, I have a very comfortable bra I got for $8 at JC Penney. I typically pay more than that for a single article of clothing. You can find comfortable and reasonably priced bras in stores, you just have to look. Ross and Marshall's are great places to shop for someone on a very limited budget

It is possible, it has happened to people at the weirdest of times. I had an aged bra that was a little worn snap on me while I was at school. It snapped in the front ... which was weird, but it was because I grew out of the bra, and it couldn't hold my new cup size ... it does get weird but it does happen

I agree with ERich, I had no problem finding a job in this supposed bad economy. I think OP has a crap paying job that the CEO is probably making millions off of her bra-less back.

Unless your a waitress who gets to keep her tips you won't get paid immediately after your shift. You have to for the pay period to be over and then wait for your pay check.

Go bra-less until then. Sales will double, and your boss might give you a promotion so you can finally afford that bra. Sales will go down, you will get demoted, your bra will snap again, and so the cycle continues...

Amen! My sewing isn't perfect, but my grandmother made sure I learned how to do basic repairs, & I always keep one of those little travel sewing kits with me. My boss popped a button off his dress shirt at work, & he and all my co workers were staring at me like I was friggin Houdini while I fixed it for him. ( he put on a tee shirt he had in his office)

Also, though in the past it was seen as women's work, I think all kids should be taught basic sewing repairs. It's not just clothes. What would you do if you're on a week long camping trip & your tent pops a seam?

If you know how to sew, you also know the basics of stitching up a wound in case of an extreme emergency as well. Yeah! Survival Skills!

I'm just a DD and finding affordable bras is a bitch. When I finally splurged and bought two pricey bras, they broke the next year. In the same exact place, within a week of each other. My $1 clearance bra from Walmart? Holding up perfectly.

If OP can, she should wait until the day after Christmas. I'm a hard size to fit so I have to buy bra from Dillards, which are $40-$90. I got one for $5. They put most stuff on super clearance
