Reasons Why Women Wear Bras Apart From Fashion
Not every woman chooses to wear bras. Even those who do wear ones most likely have a lot of complaints and would want to take them off even before reaching home. The bra fitting is tricky and, with an ill fitting bra, the wearer is forced to keep on shifting, pulling, and adjusting it. It seems that bras do not offer any good benefit to us except for fashion and appearance, right?
Bras were created because they have a purpose to serve. When we’re still young, our busts are also young and perky. As we age, the girls begin to sag. Do you know why? It’s because the pull of gravity is taking its toll. Our breasts are upheld by the internal scaffolding, the ligaments, and the skin covering the breast tissue. Over time, these natural supports lose their strength. However, gravity is not the only cause of breast sagging: there is also the weight of the breast tissue. So, what was once up, should naturally come down.
We need the support of a bra to counteract the pull of gravity. Granted, we cannot stop our breasts from sagging due to the weight and the gravitational pull, but the process can be delayed. Just always remember to wear a bra regularly. We don't mean you wear one round the clock, even when you’re sleeping. It may not help if you sleep with a bra on (there has been different opinions regarding to this). Gravity pulls only when you’re up and about. When you are sleeping, it goes away. Breasts that are supported early on will not droop fast and it does not matter what your cup size may be.
We need to wear bras also for health reasons. Wearing a bra helps prevent back pain and spine issues, and also correct the posture. Especially for the well endowed women, the front bumpers can take a toll on the back, and this may cause pain and discomfort as we move about. The right bras can even things out and promote comfort. We need the support that bras can provide when working out, in fact, even when just walking. Honestly, we can move jiggle free, because the bras counteract the discomfort, soreness and damage to breast tissues.
We can get the most benefits from wearing a bra if we only have the proper fit. If we experience ill fitting straps, poking under wires, bulky bands, etc, it is certain that we are among those 85 per cent of women who are wearing the wrong size bras. If we submit ourselves to professional bra fitting, we are doing ourselves and our breasts a very good favor.
So women wear bras more for health and practicality and less about looking like a lingerie model. Bras provide support and comfort, improve posture, and prevent health conditions. Unsupported breasts get stretched out of shape, which all of us would not want to happen. As a result, let us all wear bras.
