We all know that we can not always go braless, but if we do go braless at home and other times when a bra is not needed, will it affect our health? Is it better for our health or worse?
I decided it was time to find out. Sure all us women have grown up to believe that our breasts will sag and the ligaments will stretch out if we do not always wear a bra. I am sure you have heard this rumor, but is it true? Here is some information that I have found by searching for an answer:
Women with cups sizes larger than a DD should wear a bra throughout the day. Any size smaller than DD can get away with wearing a bra only when they want to, like when they are out of their homes or in the public eye. Bras are made to lift the breasts, shape the bust, and support the bust so that you will have a better shape and look in all your clothes. A good fitting bra with plenty of support can alleviate back and shoulder pain in women with larger busts. So yes, a bra can be important to your well-being. But should you wear a bra all the time, even at home or even to bed? No this is not healthy.
Read on to understand why:
**Many natural-health experts encourage women to not wear bras, and a number of women who follow this advice report that they don't suffer from breast pain, even during PMS. One therory:
Without the daily constriction of a bra, circulation to the breasts is optimal. So even if hormonal fluctuations trigger an increase in pain-causing breast fluid, the body is able to reduce discomfort. And some experts take this a step further, theorizing that a buildup of waste-carrying fluid can lead to cancer, making proper circulation a must. Still, no studies confirm this.
The bottom line:
It's perfectly fine to go braless, but there's no bona fide health reason to do so. Instead, simply make sure that the band of your bra (especially if it is underwire) isn't too tight. You should be able to comfortably fit two fingers between your chest and the band, and there should be no dent in your skin when you remove the undergarment. This might alleviate some of the tenderness you've been experiencing. Elizabeth Gunther Stewart, MD, FACOG. (First Magazine).
Make sure you buy the right size bra (not too small, too tight) for your body. Measure properly and often. Your bust can change with weight loss, weight gain, PMS, Menopause, water retention, body building, and exercise. Therefore, at least measure your bust each time you buy a NEW BRA. This will help guarantee a proper fit. Wearing a bra that is snug, constricting and one that makes you pull at the girth will not allow you ample circulation. A proper fitting bra is best for better health and and a better fit in all your clothes.
Go BRALESS at home and when you can and never wear your bra to bed. Give your body the comfort it needs.
And when you do need to wear a bra, get the right size and a comfortable fit. Take a look at my other guides to get the proper fit by using the proper measurements. Then come check out my auctions for bras that you will love to wear.
