It is not essential to the health of your
breasts to wear bra. They are for comfort, changing
shape or fashion.
An estimated 60-80% of women are wearing
the wrong size bra. This may not seem a major concern
but it is very important for healthy breasts. Wearing
an ill-fitting bra can lead to surgical intervention
or other treatment.
You would not think of wearing clothes
that are the wrong size so why bras? Wearing the right
size bra can only enhance your bust. Imagine wearing
trousers that were too tight or tops that are too big.
It would look very unflattering. Wearing the right size
bra can make the most of a flat chest.
First of all, the band should be lower in the back than
in the front. And when you buy a new bra, the band should
be on the loosest hook, while still feeling secure,
so you can allow for a little bit of stretching to occur.
Some girls just tighten the straps to make up for a
loose bra, but that just results in the band rising
up in the back. A band that is too high can cause neck,
shoulder or back pain, and can leave indentations on
your shoulders. The bra cup, should hold your entire
breast, with no tissue being forced out of the top or
the sides. You may also run into situations when you
need a special bra to wear with an evening dress, halter
or tube top. In this case you should bring the dress
or shirt with you to ensure a good fit. And with all
of the new trends in bra styles, sometimes it's hard
to figure out if a bra that looks neat in an advertisement
will be comfortable or appropriate for every day use.
So next time you need to buy a new bra, use this sizing
method and check to see if the bra is comfortable, and
fits all of the above-mentioned characteristics. You
will most likely find that you feel better, look better
and are a lot less fidgety during the day!
