An Ill-fitting Bra Can Cause Health Issues

We love helping our clients look and feel great! So far This year, we’ve welcomed more than 500 new and returning customers from all over the country. That means there are over 500 women walking around with better posture, better support, and more confidence than ever before.

Did you know that an ill-fitting bra can cause a variety of health problems for women? According to former breast cancer surgeon and author of “Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book,” Susan Love, MD, some of the problems attributed to ill-fitting bras include:

Bras that are tight can restrict rib cage movement and accessory muscles used for breathing. Constantly having your breasts pushed inwards can cause circulation restriction, which may damage breast tissue.

  • Irritable bowel syndrome has been associated with ill-fitting bras that constrict too much and interfere with the digestive process by putting undue pressure on the diaphragm.
  • Circulation problems can develop when the pectoral muscles in the chest are compressed, affecting the neurovascular bundle of nerves to the arms causing a pins and needles sensation.
  • Skin problems due to tight straps or hooks digging into the flesh causing lesions or lymphomas.
  • Back problems from insufficient support to the trapezius muscle from an ill-fitting bra can cause muscle strain which then leads to chronic back, shoulder and neck pain.
