What is a Posture Bra?
Do you suffer from shoulder or neck strain because of the weight of your breasts? Do you have a job where you sit or stand all day, and find it hard to maintain good posture? If you want to reduce bra-related pain and boost your quality of life, a posture bra may be a great addition to your wardrobe - particularly if you've got heavy or full breasts that cause you discomfort.
Posture bras are bras that are specifically designed to support the weight of your breasts and provide relief from shoulder strain, neck strain and muscle tension headaches. Because they're designed with support in mind, posture bras are great for full-busted women who find that the weight of their breasts causes physical discomfort.
In a posture bra design, the band of the bra - and the bra back - carry the weight of the breasts. This prevents unnecessary pulling on the shoulder straps, and also helps distribute the weight of the breasts more evenly so you're less likely to slouch or feel like you've got a heavy weight pulling at your chest. Posture bras are designed to make it easier to stand or sit upright, and they can provide a huge boost to quality of life.
