Did you know you could prevent back pain through a well-fitted bra?
Wearing an ill-fitting bra could lead to real back pain and shockingly, around half of women have said they’ve suffered from back pain at some point in their life and have claimed that their breast size was a contributing factor.
Making sure you wear a properly fitting bra could eliminate much of the pain, so next time you’re purchasing a bra, remember these key points as they will come in handy:
- You need a well-engineered bra so your shoulders don’t take all of the strain and end up doing all of the work; spreading the weight bearing is important
- Bras that don’t fit will affect the shoulders and chest and may cause back pain, as you get older; it is important to make sure a bra gives you as much support as possible
The key things to remember are: make sure you get properly fitted bra and replace old ones once they start to lose their supportive properties!
