    Around the same time that my mum was losing the ability to dress herself she also got a nasty case of shingles across her breast so she stopped wearing a bra.
    She still complains of pain in her breast area.
    It could be nerve damage from the shingles.
    One of the nurses said to me that the pain could be from the lack of support from not wearing a bra, (which I hadnt thought of)
    So I found the following product for Mum
    Brilliant ....NO hooks or fasteners at all - much easier for carers
    But I reccomend (sp) that you buy a couple of sizes up cause when I got one to suit size 14 for mum it was way too small and I ended up exchanging for the large size.

    kind regards,

    Thanks for this thread....brought back many memories......some good, some bad.

    I could cope better in the mornings, but oh those bedtimes.

    The first line of my very long prayer each night was:

    "Oh Lord, please grant me patience"
