As seen in The Daily Mail!

I was recently asked to comment on a news article in The Daily Mail about the impact that ill-fitting bras have on health. You can read the full article here: Is your bra making you ill?

Impact of bra on health

On many occasions I have been able to link women’s back and neck complaints directly to badly-fitted bras that not only offer limited or no support but creating visible problems in posture, resulting in pain and tension.

Traditional bras are often too tight around the ribs, creating a pivot point in the middle of the back, dividing it into two smaller areas that can’t work as effectively. The lack of support at the front can also bring the upper back forward and to compensate for this, many women end up tilting their heads backwards.

All these slight but continuous maladjustments put unnecessary pressure on the diaphragm, which if you are sitting at a desk for hours each day, affect the breathing mechanism and can also be a direct link to digestion problems and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Overly tight straps not only cause skin irritations but reduce blood flow, affecting the nerves and contribute to tension headaches.

If you’re concerned that this might be an issue, give me a call and we can discuss it further. In the meantime, getting measured up by a reputable store such as Bravissimo or John Lewis could have a massive impact on your comfort, posture and, ultimately, health.
