i roared with laughter when i read dee's description about adding weight to her empty bra, since I just had a masctecomy last week...and i can relate!I was given a tip...which i have to confess I have not tried yet...to stop new boob from taking a hike over shoulder...and that is to use one of those things that are kinda like elastic with clips on the end, and attach one end to bra and one to someting at waist level..like top of panties, or waistband of pants, and this anchors the damn thin, thus keeping it in the generally correct vicinity! A friend is getting one for me, so i will let yu all know what happens...I know you can hardly stand the wait...but my incision needs to heal a bit more first ladies...and I know you all understand that. Here's to keeping boobs under control...Love susan

Hi Susan,
I know just what you are talking about....my husband was totally puzzled when I purchased diaper pins while at the grocery store a few weeks ago. I was using them to pin my bra to the waistband of my pants.....I knew diaper pins wouldn't open and stab me....they worked great and kept the "jiggler" in place. Whatever works! I hope you are doing well and will keep you in my prayers. Take care,
