Comfort and health must go hand in hand, this balance must be perfect when a woman uses a bra, bustier, bra or bra . The circumference of each breast has different receptors that make them sensitive to variations in heat, pain and pressure. The following article shows a series of signs that indicate that the bra hurts you so that they can be identified and avoid an irreversible effect.

Signs that the bra is a problem

Below you can find out if the bra hurts you, and what the signs may be that indicate it and what kind of problems it can cause. You will also find some tips to know how to choose the right bodice for you.

Tighten too much and create stress

The visual trend – and why not say it, sexist – of today has caused the uncovering of female attributes to be greater, and how could it be otherwise, the breasts are not far behind. This is how the trend of using bras of smaller sizes to lift them has gained traction.

The problem with using this type of bra is that it causes friction in the peripheral part of each breast causing discomfort and later stress. If the feeling of discomfort increases it is clear that the pressure receptors are saying “take this off me now.”

Inadequate support fabrics

The female bra is a garment that must provide protection to both breasts . However, and due to the type of fabrics with which it is manufactured, this is not always the case. The products that have the most difficulty are those that do not have cotton or wool, basically they are too synthetic. Non-perspiration in this area is dangerous because the pores can close causing the appearance of benign masses.

They don’t hold enough

Another of the signs that the bra is hurting you is improper support. Failure to choose a correct size causes constant breakage of the closure or that the upper part of the bra is repeatedly rising, which is torture for the back. It is advisable to choose a size that covers the entire chest.


It doesn’t make you feel beautiful

Health is essential in these sensitive parts, but beauty should be synonymous with comfort, if the bra does not make you feel beautiful, perhaps the change is necessary. Sometimes finding a bra made of excellent material, comfortable and inexpensive is difficult, but a little patience is enough to find the right one.

The filling must be adequate

This specific point has to do with aesthetics, there are women who want to increase the size of their breasts and for this they resort to using bras with too much padding. The problem with this decision is that the padding causes excess heat that damages the tissue that surrounds the nipple, also known as the areola.

Tips for choosing a good bra

  • Choose the size of the bra well : to achieve this, wrap your back below the bust and get the average in inches. Now measure the middle of your chest in inches and subtract this measurement from the previous one, the result is your cup.
  • To know if it fits properly you must know how to place it, for this you just have to tilt your body 45 degrees forward and adjust from behind.
  • The straps must be snug but must not leave your silhouette marked on the shoulders.
  • The hormonal change in women causes the bust to increase or decrease according to the menstrual cycle. As is evident, the bra must adjust to these changes, being a process that is suffered every month, buying different sizes for each period of time is more than necessary.
  • Wearing the right bra for every occasion should be a rule. There are different types such as the preformed ones that are the most innovative and leave the bust as you have it, the sports ones that are ideal to support the little one during constant movement. The underwire that help lift heavy breasts, the movable cup bras that help breastfeeding women. Among many others.

We hope these tips help you identify the mistakes when choosing a bra . If beauty is important, health is even more so. Forget the myth that the bra causes cancer, it is the misuse of it that causes alterations in health.
