Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

I need bra/bikini top advice! I have lost weight and gone down a couple of sizes, I have a beach holiday in 6 weeks and I need some new bikini tops. I want to look bigger, can anyone recommend any padded and push up bikini tops? I really like the tops Ronda Rousey wears for her fights, something like that?

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Something that's been on my mind for a few days - not directly related to this thread, but kinda (hoping to drum up some support) is that there's nowhere on EF specifically dedicated to women's issues.
Which I suppose is why some men have complained on this thread (though I can 't see what they're complaining about).
There are threads about IVF, this one about boobs/bras and I wanted to ask a question related to women's health but couldn't find an appropriate (and safe) place to post.
Will any of you join me in asking for a Women's Section ?

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Just start a thread. Apart from boobs, I would think most men will avoid anything women's health related like the plague.

What I saw in sport x (migros sport) is that they offr mix & match bikinis. You may find something there, I saw padded tops.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

We have had several typical female questions here already
And yes, a good way also to find out who is female as that is often unclear from the profile name

I really do think a section would be appropriate. I mean there are lots of threads that would be more at home there. Or is it just me ?

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

What´s the difference? Do you want to lock access to that section to females only?

Even if it is a "female only" question, there can be men who can help as their partner/OH/family member had a similar item

What exactly is the problem you're trying to resolve?

You seem to be wanting a forum of your own where no one is allowed to disagree with you. The world, and the Internet, is not a totally 'safe' place, and most regular posters are well aware that their posts can, and will, be misinterpreted, taken out of context, deliberately misquoted and generally pulled apart by all and sundry.

Looking for a ring-fenced 'safe' area for your personal preferred topics seems to me to go against the whole point of a forum such as ours.

There are threads on Facebook, which are closed groups for certain topics.
Can't really see the point of it here.

Re: Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Britething, if 'women's things' includes question about gynecology in Switzerland, this thread was created (in response to another thread where a poster was jumped on) as a place to give information and discuss concerns - without the usual banter:

Gynecological Exams in Switzerland: What to expect

And so far the tone has kept helpful and respectful.

Well that was nasty. I was suggesting a section where anyone who had a woman's health question might feel safe to post a thread on topics such as :
IVF
Pregnancy/unwanted pregnancy
Sterility
Breast cancer/ovarian cancer
Health checks in these areas
Etc
Many of these topics relate more massively to women than their partners.
I am not suggesting this area 'belong' to any one person, that's ridiculous.
Making your reply mean and personal goes against the desire to do or create something new for the good of the forum.
A very surprising reaction.

I'm all for it if you want to start a separate thread, but don't give it much hope. Many EFers are happy to remain anonymous - it can take years to figure out whether a poster is male / female, and often that only happens through PMs.

That's one of the great things about EF - you select the info. you want - it's not pushed on you, and you can choose the level of granularity you want to get into.

Have joined one or two female closed groups on Facebook over the years and left them very quickly .

Many apologies - I'm an avid follower as both me and my daughter have similar logistical issues.

So, maybe a new thread might be a good idea if there's need for discussion on other more female health problems. You'd just need to be able to distinguish between what's male and female I suppose.

Getting back on track

You may want to see if Hunkemöller has an online shop. I have bought some nice things there (for the also broad shouldered woman)

Do Swiss women have small breasts OR my hunt for a bra

Sorry for the OT, but

To be honest, there is no way I would want a woman's issues thread/section here.

I think EF is a wonderful information source. But personal issues can turn into disasters. Look at the recent thread about asylum. Review threads about family issues.

This is not the place for sensitive personal issues. This is a very open, no holds barred sort of place, where people can be almost voyeuristic in their desire for personal details. I'm sorry, but you don't always need sensitive details to provide an opinion. But it's often what is expected in exchange for advice.

Take the forum for what it is....extremely valuable in some domains, and actually enormously supportive....but not the place to bare your soul.

Oh, and I disagree with Ace1 that you're seeking agreement. But he (i guess) is right in that it's easy to misinterpret, sometimes willfully.
