Potential Health Problems for Ill-Fitting Bras

If your bra fits poorly it isn't just unflattering - it can cause potential health problems, too. These are a few of the health problems related to ill-fitting bras:

Shoulder pain
Neck pain
Headaches
Stretching the breast tissue
Compressing or distorting the breast tissue

If the bra doesn't provide good support, you may experience pain and stretching of the breast tissue, leading to droopy breasts.

If the bra is too tight, it can also cause pain, and it can compress or distort the breast tissue over time.

If the cup is too small, it can compress your breast tissue and squeeze it out around the sides, top or bottom of the bra.

Particularly harmful is compressing the breast tissue between an underwire and your body. Wearing a poorly-fitting bra isn't just a fashion faux-pas; it can lead to health problems and ultimate distortion of your breasts.
