7 ways your bra is seriously damaging your health

As women, we can all unanimously agree that almost nothing compares to the feeling of taking off the bra at the end of a long and hard day.

At times, it may also feel like a lot of weight has been lifted off our chest. Have you ever paused to wonder why exactly do we feel this way?

Ill-fitted lingerie can make you feel really uncomfortable and can be actually bad for your health.

We tell you 4 ways in which an ill-fitted bra can seriously mess with your health:

1. Breathlessness

When you wear an ill-fitted garment, it can actually cause shortness of breath. This happens because when you wear a tight bra–which is not exactly your size–it restricts the movements of your ribs. As a result, it makes you a shallow breather instead of being a deep breather.

This does not mean that a wrong-sized bra won’t let you breathe but it would rather affect your quality of breathing.

2. sick damage

Yes. If you are wearing a bra that is a size or two smaller than your actual cup size, it can actually hamper your blood circulation and as a result, it may damage your skin as well.

3. Terrible headache

If headaches have become a regular part of your life, we might suggest you take a second look at the fitting of your bra. A poorly-fitted brasserie can put unnecessary strain on your neck and upper back. This may even result in cervicogenic headaches which can be caused by overworked neck muscles.

4. Back pain

If you have been complaining of chronic stiffness around your neck and back, check whether you are wearing a bra that is too tight for your bosoms. This is because when you wear a tight bra, it puts a lot of strain on your back where it is clasped. When you restrict the movement of your back, it can lead to stiffness.

5. Cut off blood circulation

The tightness and squeezing around your chest can compress your major blood vessels, leading to blood circulation cut-off.

6. Pocket of fat

If you think bras make your breast look toner and perkier, take a look at your back. Everything comes with some consequences behind. In this case, it’s literally ‘behind.’ No matter how thin or fit you are, due to the tight straps of bras, your back skin will form multiple rolls of fat.

7. Weaken the muscles

Bras can also weaken the suspension muscles on your body. Such muscles are in charge of lifting the weight of your breast and averting sagging. So, if you keep wearing bras for a long time, these muscles will weaken over time.
