This very personal decision depends on your comfort.
Many of us have become accustomed to not wearing bras throughout the pandemic. My first thought was, is this for fashion? Or we don’t always need to wear a bra as we continue to work from home. Wouldn’t it be better to wear pajamas?
While some women have forgone wearing a bra, it’s understandable that people completely embrace the lifestyle of not wearing a bra.
However, after a few months (or even a year) of not wearing bras, some women may wonder if the time they do not wear a bra has a negative effect on their breasts.
Whatever the pros and cons of wearing a bra, read on for expert answers to all your questions.
Will my breasts sag more if I don’t wear a bra?
Sure, your breasts may sag for various reasons such as gravity and age. The sagging is the result of the lengthening and weakening of the ligaments that form the supporting structure inside the chest. However, studies have not shown that regular bra wearing reduces breast sagging.
Should I wear a bra to improve my posture?
The act of wearing a bra doesn’t really help your posture. Sometimes we thought that women with big breasts need a bra for support and to properly distribute weight so they developed less severe back problems.
While it may be hard to believe, experts say that wearing a bra does not really improve your posture and prevent back pain.
Dr. Venesy, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Practitioner, states that: “In my clinical experience, wearing a bra does not prevent back pain or improve a woman’s posture. “The benefits of wearing a bra are largely cosmetic,” she adds.
Bra mistakes to avoid
We now know that wearing or not wearing a bra has no direct connection with improving posture, preventing back pain or sagging breasts. So, what are the things that women often go wrong with when wearing bras?
Not choosing and wearing the right bra size
It would be tight or uncomfortable if you’re wearing the wrong bra size.
Make sure your bra is comfortable. A bra should be fitted, comfortable and supportive so that you don’t feel the strain in your back and shoulders.
What are the benefits of wearing a bra?
1. Your breasts won’t hurt during exercise
You might feel uncomfortable and embarrassed when your breasts move up and down excessively during exercises such as running, jogging or dancing.
You do need a bra because gravity and movement can cause breast pain or uncomfortable. A sports bra is enough to support the superior portion of your back and avoid any pain caused by exercise.
2. It can boost your confidence
One of our favorite things about bras is how sexy they can make people feel. Indeed, cleavage is one of the most attractive parts of women. The right bra can make a big difference in how we look and feel, and even enhance our confidence.
3.Give your breasts a better shape
As we all know, the body comes in various shapes and sizes. The same goes for the breasts. Wearing the right type of bra can help you hold your breast in better shape and make your figures look more streamlined.
The bottom line
Do we need to wear a bra? It’s your choice to wear one or not…
Go for it if you feel you need some support and it makes you feel good. If you feel good without it, that’s okay. Do whatever you feel necessary. It all depends on what you’re comfortable with.
