I would like to know the reasoning behind why you wear a bra, not just that it's comfortable. Or the size of your breasts. The doctor the other day told me that I needed to wear a high impact sport bras for a few weeks because I strained my Cooper ligaments. It was to let them heal and then he said after that I need to wear a bra regularly to support them so it didn't happen again. I did think something like that was possible my breast are very small. If I had to put a size to them maybe aa or a max. When I told my wife about having to wear a bra she was really upset. Any help in this area would be great to. Thank you

Let me startout by saying bras are for breasts. I'm a married man who has worn a bra for almost 30 years now. I'ma man with severe gynecomastia ( meaning female like breasts on a man ). I wear a 36G in most of my bras. I don't go bra less.
A bra helps keep breast tissue from moving excessively.  There is no medical evidence that says you need to wear a bra. However you will probably be more comfortable while wearing one given your condition. Even at my size, I don't need to wear a bra. However I am much more comfortable while wearing one.

A bra should provide physical comfort to you. That's why so many women wear one (and for modesty reasons as well ). I know that the bra  may cause you to feel uncomfortable, mentally. Women don't experience this because it's normal for them while it seems emasculating to us. I certainly to terms long ago that I wear a bra for me and nobody else. I wear it because I am more comfortable with one than without one.

You should at least try wearing a bra. You won't turn into a woman as soon as you put it on. If it works, great. If it doesn't, than at least you tried to follow your doctor's advice.

Even small breasts can and do bounce under the right conditions, you most likely have felt it. Rough roads are the worst and depending on your activity level and type of activities stretching can cause damage to the connective tissues in and around the breasts.
Your wife needs to get on board with the simple fact that men can and do develop breasts for a wide range of reasons. If you have breasts you will need some form of support, compression sports bras are a good start.
How you deal with your wife is your affair, I cannot advise you because I am not nor have I ever been married or in a relationship lasting longer than 6 months.
Many men on this forum have the same issues with their wife.

With this small of a size, I would think a compression t-shirt would be sufficient to keep them in place in the vast majority of situations.

I don't regularly and I never did wear one regularly.   I enjoy mountaineering and the bounce was especially annoying. I wore a Bra when engaged in that activity to stop the annoying bounce.   Now as I am less physically capable due to age, I have only rare occasion to wear some sort of containment garment.

My back hurts if I dont wear a bra, as do my boobs if they bounce too much. I am a C cup though.

Being a 46H I should wear one all the time! I've been more disciplined about wearing one everyday lately because I've been getting the red rash under the BIG fold, so Bobby has been much better about putting on his bras!

Truth is I do feel better with on one, I just haven't got into the habit of putting it on even after all these years! I need to buy more and at $60-70 each it doesn't excite me much, I'd rather buy tools, guns or ammo and fishing stuff not bras!
I'd rather be hated for who I am, then loved for who I'm not!

I am who I am,  and I'm not going to change to please anyone!
