Written by Indrani Karmakar  • 

Thankfully, undergarments are no longer a stereotypical hush-hush topic. With the surging awareness about intimate hygiene and innerwear, people are more open-mindedly addressing health problems related to these clothes. Take bras for instance; by now, you know there is no one-size-fits-all, and there are different designs and structural linings for different breast sizes and occasions. That brings us to the question, are bras just an aesthetic appeal to our clothing, or do they benefit our health in any way? Here in this article, we have listed some common health benefits of wearing bras regularly. Read on to know them all.

Your breasts might not be the only cause leading up to your persistent neck pain, but it can be one of the main reasons. People with heavier breasts often complain about shoulder and neck pain, and this is a common issue with people who have larger cup sizes. While a breast reduction could be recommended by your doctor in extreme cases, you may find relief from the immediate discomfort by wearing a supportive and well-fitting bra. Make sure you take assistance from experts in choosing the bra that will suit your health condition and cup size.

2. Improved Posture

Having a bigger cup size often makes you slouch involuntarily. And, of course, gravity spares none! If you’re experiencing discomfort from carrying extra weight on your breasts, your posture may have suffered as an outcome. Wearing a supportive bra may aid in maintaining an upright position, which may lessen the possibility of back pain. Make sure you take the recommendation of an expert to select the right kind of bra for you.

3. Working Out Won’t Cause Any Discomfort

Ask any woman with a larger cup size; they will tell you how uncomfortable it is for them to work out in public. This is probably why they choose to exercise in the solidarity of their rooms or skip specific exercises that will cause them to move more. So, activities such as running, jogging, or even jumping are their worst enemy. However, this doesn’t always have to be the case. Wearing a sports bra is the go-to answer to keep your breasts from jiggling about and causing discomfort or embarrassment.

4. Boost Of Confidence

This might sound weird, but this is actually true. Wearing suitable undergarments gives a boost to your confidence like no other. So don’t store your new and pretty bras for good occasions only. Instead, wear them when you want to. Nothing should dictate when and where you want to feel like the queen of the world.

5. Look More Fashionable

There was a time when bra straps were considered as a disrespect to a place’s decorum. Now we have bra straps defining fashion statements. Many fashion enthusiasts have encouraged trends to display their bras in an unconventional but edgy manner. Choose a bra that flatters your figure, and wear it with a high-waisted skirt or slacks or a layering piece for the upper half of your outfit, and you’ll be amazed at how wonderful you look. You go, girl!

6. Nursing Might Get Easier

A toast to all the mothers in the world! Nursing can be a wonderful experience, but most moms have swollen and engorged breasts that make them uncomfortable in their regular bras. In order to provide enough support and prevent pain, some nursing mothers prefer to use wireless bras that are both comfortable and supportive. You may also wish to try waterproof nursing pads if you are suffering from engorgement. Some have even benefitted from getting into sports bras that are both supportive and can soak excess sweat and liquid that come in handy if you are a new mom.

Bras have earned the reputation for being uncomfortable clothes and are the necessary evils in your life. But it does not have to be this way. Discomfort arises when you wear the wrong kind of bra or of a smaller or larger size than your body needs. The function of a bra is not to somehow fit your breasts close to your chest. Instead, it supports your breasts without putting pressure on the straps on your shoulders. If you feel any pinching sensation or health problems with your bra, it is time to change it and research it. Even the build of a bra or the width of the straps can make a big difference in how you feel in the bra. So, is there something you would like to add to our list?
