Who Should Wear a Bra?

Bras provide a lot of great benefits that make them very popular among women in western cultures. Statistics say that as many as 90% of women wear bras, so the answer to 'who should wear a bra' is: pretty much everyone!

Women with large breasts who want some relief from the weight of the bust

Women whose breasts tissue is loose or 'agging' and want support and shaping from a bra

Women who want their breasts to stay put and not bounce or move around when they're working out

Women who want to preserve modesty with a bra that prevents nipple show-through and provides smooth, feminine shaping

Women who have had surgery and need a bra for medical reasons

Women who have aches and pains caused by their breasts, particularly shoulder pain, back pain, or muscle tension headaches

Women who have dress codes at work and need to wear a bra as a part of the work wardrobe

There's really no-one who shouldn't wear a bra - it's just a matter of picking the right bra for your body type and activity.
