Wearing the Wrong Bra Size Damage Your Health!!!

Women, who want to look full-breasted wearing tight bras, may need to think twice as the new study reveals that it can lead to breast

Scientists at the Harvard University found that the wrong-sized bras can confine blood circulation and damage lymph flow. 

When a woman is wearing a tight bra especially for long periods of time, the lymph circulation is restricted with less oxygen and nutrients being delivered to the tissues and more waste products accumulating in the breasts. This may eventually lead to such conditions as anoxia (low oxygen level), which has been linked to fibrosis, and can increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

Shapeless Form
If you wear an ill-fitting bra, you will not have the sleek, elegant look that you want. Instead, your whole form will look shapeless and unattractive. An ill-fitting bra will also draw unnecessary attention to the bust area.

Scarred Breasts
Wearing the wrong bra size can cause scarring underneath or on each side of the breasts, which is not immediately noticeable. But over time, a bra that is far too tight will end up creating a scarring effect, where the bra has dug into the flesh.

Inadequate Support
Large breasted women often have a battle on their hands to find bras that fit well and provide them with the correct amount of support for their shape. All too often, many large breasted women opt for a smaller size bra, which might look more attractive than a "granny bra", but a smaller size will actually cause more problems than it solves. A bra that fits properly should not ride up at the back; nor should bra straps dig into the shoulders, leaving behind red marks. An ill-fitting bra will not provide enough coverage for the breasts. If your breasts are spilling out of your bra from all angles, then you are wearing the wrong size bra.

Bad Posture
Women who wear the wrong size bra often have problems maintaining correct posture. This can lead to slouching rather than sitting and standing upright, as well as unexplained back and neck pain.

The best solution to wearing the wrong bra size is to visit a department store and have yourself measured, not once every few years, but every single time that you go shopping for a new bra. The reason for this is that a woman's bust size will change throughout her life due to hormonal reasons, pregnancy, weight loss and other factors. Wearing the wrong bra size can cause health problems, but allowing yourself to be measured each time you go bra shopping will ensure that you buy the correct bra size. This will eliminate the health problems that can occur while wearing the wrong bra size.

Here are the following recommendations on how to preserve your breast health wearing and choose the right bra:
  1. Try to avoid wearing bra at least 12 hour a day.
  2. Do not wear bra at night to allow better lymph circulation.
  3. Do not a buy a bra without trying it on to find what fits you the best.
  4. As woman breast undergo certain changes during breastfeeding, pregnancy, weight loss, so does her bra size, which means that you should get fitted more often.
  5. The back band should be firm and comfortable to provide the necessary support, but should not rise up the back.
  6. To find out if the bra is fitting you right, place one or two fingers under the band, you have the right-sized bra.
  7. If you wear an underwire bra, the wire should lay flat comfortably against your rib cage.
  8. The breast should fill the cup and not bulge at the top or have too much extra room.
  9. Try different styles of bras to find what fits you the best.
