Yesterday, we looked at why women wear bras and the role that bras play in modern society. We briefly touched on women wearing bras for support, but that’s a topic that certainly deserves more attention. Anyone who’s above an A cup can benefit from wearing a bra for support. Women with smaller busts may only need the support when doing vigorous exercise, but women with bigger busts need good support at all times!
A good supportive bra is more comfortable than no bra for women with big busts, as not wearing a bra or wearing a bad bra can cause back strain. But failure to wear a bra can also lead to some serious long-term consequences for your breasts. If you’re a big busted woman and you don’t regularly wear a bra for support, maybe you should reconsider your position!
Find Comfort in a Supportive Bra
First and foremost, when you’re a big-busted woman, a bra that doesn’t offer good support or no bra at all can be really uncomfortable. Whether you’re just walking around, sitting at a desk, running errands or driving to work, you may be uncomfortable without a supportive bra. Big busts put a lot of strain on your back and shoulders, and may cause headaches and fatigue just from the weight of carrying them around.
A good, supportive bra reduces this type of strain and shifts the weight of your bust to your core muscles; muscles that support your body every day and are perfectly capable of handling the load. If you often find yourself with a sore back, a stoop or other fatigue and discomfort because of your big bust, you might be able to fix that with a more supportive bra.
Stretch Marks, Ligament Strain and Long-Term Damage
Many women don’t realize that a failure to wear a bra can actually hurt your breasts. If you’re a big-busted woman, not wearing a bra during workouts can cause ligament strain and tearing. You may develop stretch marks over time as a result of this strain, and those stretch marks never go away!
You can also suffer long-term damage from a failure to wear a bra; over time, if your breasts aren’t getting enough support they can begin to sag. The ligaments that support them will stretch, and they’ll lose their perky, pleasing shape. If you’re a big-busted woman, plan for the future: wear a good, supportive bra to keep your breasts looking great for a long time to come!
Many big-busted women have trouble finding appropriately sized bras that fit. That’s one of the things we focus on here at Big Girls’ Bras; we understand your difficulty and carry many bra sizes that you’ll never find in a regular department store. We carry cup sizes up to JJ/N, so we’ve got something for even the biggest bust. Don’t let your breasts go unsupported; give yourself the comfort and love you deserve in the form of a good bra!
