It is likely that you have heard that 80% of women out there are wearing the wrong bra size. So why is it so important to go get a bra fitting?
Wearing a badly fitted bra can actually make you feel ill; it is common to experience headaches and neck pain from wearing the wrong size bra. When wearing a bra with too large a band size and too small a cup size, the breasts are supported by the shoulder straps. This causes unnecessary pressure on the shoulders, which can result in head and neck pain. Circulation and skin issues can also be the result of poorly fitting bras, as well as breathing problems.
In addition to health trouble, a bra that does not fit can affect the way your clothes fit, making your bust look bulky and strange. It also will negatively affect your posture. Alternatively, a bra that fits properly and supports the breasts can make you look slimmer and enhance the fit of your clothing.
So head on over to your local lingerie boutique and get fitted! Psst - Forty Winks is one of our very favorites, located in Cambridge ;)
