This week, we’ve been discussing various bra fit challenges in an effort to help you find just the right bra for you. Today we’re going to discuss something that most women don’t want to think about: the effects of aging, nursing and weight loss and weight gain. We all know that the stereotype of young beautiful women includes high, firm breasts. Over time, aging, nursing and weight fluctuations can cause that breast tissue to become less firm. As much as we don’t want to acknowledge it, it’s a fact of life. When this inevitably happens to you, as it happens to all of us, which bra is the right bra to help deal with these challenges?
The Challenge of Loose Breast Tissue
Most women hate to think about a time when they lose their firm breasts. But lots of things in life can contribute to looser breast tissue. This happens naturally as we age. It can be exacerbated by breast feeding, and the changes to the breasts during and after pregnancy. And it can happen in cases of extreme weight gain and weight loss. While it’s something most of us don’t want to think about, it happens to all of us, sooner or later, and shouldn’t be viewed as making us any less feminine or beautiful.
The fit challenge if your breast tissue has gotten less firm is that some types of bras just don’t offer the support and shaping that flatters loose breast tissue. A demi bra, for example, looks great on a woman with firm breasts, but a woman who has loose breast tissue may find that she doesn’t get flattering cleavage, or that a demi cup bra doesn’t offer enough support and shaping. Women with this fit challenge are best served by full-cup bras, push up bras and bras with a rounded, natural shape that provide good support, lift and shaping.
