70% of women are wearing a bra that is too small for them, and 10% are wearing a bra that is too big for them.
Unflattering bulges and red marks might result from an ill-fitting bra, but that's not all. The simple truth is that bras that do not fit properly will not provide you with the necessary support.
Bras that give adequate support, such as therapeutic bras, not only help you feel more confident, but they also have numerous health benefits.
1. Get rid of your back pain and headaches.
Plus-size women with larger busts are less likely to wear a bra that fits properly, according to studies. When your bra isn't strong enough, your back and shoulders bear the brunt of the tension.
"Bra Strap Syndrome,"
The medical disease known as costoclavicular syndrome is known as "bra strap syndrome," and it occurs when tight bra straps compress the veins and arteries in your shoulders.
Tight bra straps put downward pressure on the clavicles, narrowing the costoclavicular passage and causing significant neck and shoulder pain. Tight bra straps can also induce 'rounded' shoulders by leaving indentations where the shoulder tissues have been injured.
In addition to shoulder pain, straining your upper back and shoulder muscles can induce neck stress, which can lead to cervicogenic headaches.
2. Reduce Irritation on the Skin
Do you ever experience itchy, dry skin under your busts, armpits, or shoulders? It's possible that your tight bra is to blame.
Rashes and Eczema
Chafing around the band and straps can lead to dermatitis and rashes if your bra is overly tight. Contact allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, and skin infections can all be caused by rubbing the tight cloth against your skin.
Lumps and Lesions
When the hooks on an overly tight bra dig into your skin, sores and lumps appear where the tissue has been harmed.
3. Increasing Circulation
Blood circulation is restricted, lymph function is impaired, and blood vessels are compressed when the band of your bra is overly tight around your chest.
Compressed Lymph Nodes
The lymph nodes are in charge of creating white blood cells and removing poisons from the body.
Wearing a restrictive bra, particularly one with an underwire, can hinder your lymph nodes from functioning properly. Even more concerning, compression of the lymphatic veins has been linked to bust cancer in investigations.
Needle and Pins
A tight bra can squeeze your blood vessels, causing ‘pins and needles' in your arms and other cardiovascular problems.
4. Increase your range of motion
Bras that are overly tight around your shoulders, upper back, and ribcage might put strain on your nerves, muscles, and blood vessels.
Crushed Acromioclavicular joints
Tight bra straps can cause the acromioclavicular joint (at the top of the shoulder) to be crushed over time, affecting arm function and range of motion.
Your bra should never obstruct your range of motion. When you twist, move, and bend over, the band of a well-fitted bra should stay in place. It suggests the straps are too tight if the band rides up your back.
5. Work on your posture
A well fitted bra can provide additional back support while also avoiding neck and shoulder stress and muscular problems.
Slumping vs. Slouching
If a woman is unhappy with her shape or size, she may arch or slump her shoulders, resulting in musculoskeletal pain and poor posture.
Wearing a properly fitted bra improves your posture by equally spreading the weight of your busts across your shoulders and aligning your muscles and spine.
6. Improve Digestion and Breathing
If larger busts are not adequately supported, their weight on the ribcage might limit the diaphragm, causing breathing and digesting problems.
A properly fitting bra elevates the breasts away from the diaphragm, allowing you to breathe more profoundly.
Heartburn and IBS may be exacerbated by the weight of unsupported busts, as well as the poor posture they can induce.
7. Increase your level of activity.
Finding a bra that provides proper support when exercising, such as a decent sports bra, will help you get most out of your workout.
Bust Structure Damage
You can harm the internal structure of your busts if you don't use a correctly fitted sports bra while exercising.
This is because busts are supported by a network of skin and connective tissue rather than muscle. Exercising can strain the skin and supportive ligaments, causing your breasts to change form and look.
Furthermore, because your back and neck muscles must work harder to manage the weight, your workout may be more difficult.
Bust Pain and Discomfort
Bust discomfort or soreness affects 72 percent of women who exercise regularly, and 85 percent of women think that having the correct amount of support makes them enjoy exercising more.
8. Boost Your Confidence
It goes without saying that wearing the right bra can boost your self-esteem.
You won't have to worry about uncomfortable chafing, insufficient support, or ugly bulges on your shoulders and back if you wear a bra that fits right.
No matter what dress you're wearing, the appropriate bra will lift and contour your breasts. Furthermore, the appropriate bra will elevate your bust, displaying your waistline and making you appear thinner.
The Most Important Takeaways
There are numerous advantages to selecting a bra that is tailored to your size and shape. Back discomfort and headaches can be relieved, circulation improved, and posture corrected with the suitable bra.
It's no secret that if you feel good, you'll look good, too! Being comfortable can have a huge impact on self-confidence.
