Why A Good Fitting Bra Is Essential For Every Woman

Just about everywhere you look these days, you can see a little pink ribbon as a reminder for breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer is so widespread that there are many organizations that are dedicated to finding a cure. The media campaigns have become extremely effective in bringing this often deadly disease to the attention of those who may never thought of it and hopefully a cure will soon be found.

Women are instructed to pay close attention to their breasts, examining them for lumps and irregularities and encouraged to visit their health care professional for an expert evaluation. With all the attention that is given to the health of a breast, surprisingly little is given to how an ill fitting bra can adversely affect it.

Good circulation in the body is essential for good health. Unfortunately today’s ideas of beauty can cause a woman to choose a bra that is too tight or not supportive. You can look at the women that are displayed in television shows, movies, commercials and music videos and see that they are all slim and wearing tight fitting clothing. Because most women want to emulate that look, they may choose a bra for its fashion appeal but neglect to consider its health implications.

A bra that is too tight around the waist can cut off the circulation of blood and nymph. Similarly, a bra that does not give the proper support can also cause too much stress on the back and spine and cause a woman to have backaches. Many women may get breast reduction surgery to stop the pain in their backs when actually wearing the proper bra may go along way in solving the problem.

Another common mistake that women make is they will put on their bras but not adjust the breasts so that the nipples are centered in the cups. It’s important for the breasts to be centered in the middle because this also helps to increase the flow of circulation, as well as giving them a more appealing look.

Cleavage is something that most women want to display at one time or another and those women who have smaller breasts will often buy bras that push the breasts together and lift them up. These bras should fit comfortably so that the circulation can freely flow but many women will buy ones that are too small because it makes the cleavage appear that much greater.

Whenever possible a woman should be professionally fitted for a bra by a woman who is trained in this area. This way she can buy the ones that will contribute to the health of her breast instead of the ones that may affect them adversely.
