What is a comfortable bra for an elderly woman?
Usually, it a bra without the wires, because they may hurt. Personal preferences also count. Maybe you want a cotton-only bra or you may like other soft materials as well.
With aging you might also struggle a bit with the fastening of your bra and look for an alternative, like a bra with a front-closure.
