Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

For a good plunge bra I always look for Freya or Fantasie--they are UK brands and my absolute favourite. I wear a 34G usually and I find they are supportive even in the plunge and low cut styles--no double boob and usually nice comfy shoulder straps.

Perhaps the war on Science by "Catholicism" does, religion as a whole--not so much. While I agree that the catholic church did in some cases patron the sciences and does quickly adopt new scientific discoveries--they completely ignore others (say the efficacy of condoms).
