This isn't vey helpful but women Snooker players (or any cue sports) can have similar issues because to cue well you need to rub the cue against the side of your chest against the ribs. This keeps the cue straight and promotes consistency. This is why you don't see large breasted players at the higer ranks.

memo to self: piano not snooker piano not snooker.... laugh

Another old fashioned way: bind the whole body together (as) in a corset ?

Saw the 'shock absorber' physics simulation - nice idea, still the least... interesting option. Depends on the beholder's eye's gender...

The corset is a very good idea, and not old fashioned at all!
There're really nice and modern designs, and it will add a gothic touch to your recital attire thumb

Well, if all else fails there's always the old standby, multi-purpose, highly popular remedy known in the trades as "duct tape".

You scoff, but if it's good enough to hold together fenders and side panels on cars . . .

First of all, La Campanella is not a song... However, moving on, Champion, Lilyette and Wacoal (recommended) make good minimizers.

well...

you do have some serious, helpful suggestions here. I am a bit offended by some of the lesser comments and am a bit surprised. I hope you are not so thin-skinned.

I feel the same, Apple.
This person has a legitimate question/issue.

*(By the way, I think it's fantastic that she's playing "la Campanella" .
Go for it, girl!)*

I might be too - except I can't figure out which were the "helpful suggestions" and which were the "lesser comments" confused :p

Regards, JF

P.S. after more than 14,000 posts in the various Forums you're offended and surprised by some of the light hearted humor in this thread?

Are you suggesting that she wear it on the outside, a la Madonna?

Seriously, a good sports bra, as suggested, is likely your best suggestion.

Of course!

Not like Madonna (her corsets are just underwear), I meant the ones that make (us) gothic girls look so gorgeous laugh

You can wear them over a blouse or whatever. Of course it's just a matter of taste, but dependeing on how you combine it, you can be very original (and elegant!). Sometimes I wear one with slacks, a white blouse and a tie.

This is a random pic. You can easily find designs heavily reinforced in the inside but with nice brocade/satin/leather/whatever on the outside.


[EDIT to add]

Obviously, if you prefer or if the situation asks for anything with a more classical look, the sports-bra is the best option.

Corsets can be worn under clothing too, of course smile
But I'd suggest a good sports bra too. Duct taping it is going to be painful because you'd rip off little hairs when you take it off. And those plastic-reinforced breast holders might be too uncomfortable. But as a guy I don't know for sure, so might be better if you try it anyway.

It all comes down to the size of your breasts though.. It can only be compressed to a certain size without getting unhealthy/uncomfortable smile

To add to the discussion: Another idea is to walk into a GOOD bra store, and ask them for advice. They might have some advice on reducing width, even if they don't have a bra to do it for you. They're the experts.

Well, I can relate to that problem, being rather generously proportioned in that area. Forget the duct tape, and Phonehome's suggestion. I think I will try Auntie Lynn's suggestion---Champion, Lilyette and Wacoal.

O.K. you guys. Stop snickering. In your next life you may come back as well endowed females trying to play La Campanella. Gaby Tu

For some strange reason, Gaby Tu, I thought you were a man. Thanks for the clarification. smile

In my humble opinion, the men are ill-equipped to give advice on this thread.

I think I'll stay out of this one (oops, too late). smile
