How Your Bra Can Ease Back Pain

When it comes to your bra, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all. Whether a woman chooses a particular bra to help support her breasts during pregnancy, to stay comfy and secure at the gym, or to help ease back pain – there’s a bra to suit every body shape and size.


Pain in The Back

A good bra does more than protect your boobs. When fitted correctly, it also helps keep your back pain-free. Because we’re all different, the right bra will differ from one woman to the next. If you’re honest with yourself, do you know if you’ve got the right bra for you boobs, back and body? If you’ve got bad posture, back pain, or even pinched nerves, your bra might be too tiny or tight.

If you live an active life and like to keep moving, a professionally fitted bra can make all the difference. An inadequate bra can set up a terrible cycle – ‘Women limit themselves from doing exercise because of their breasts. They deprive themselves, and the less they exercise, the more obese and buxom they may become,’ says sports physiotherapist, Deirdre McGhee. 


What to Look For

Try this stat on for size: a pair of D-cup breasts weighs between 6-10 kg; that’s a lot of weight to carry around. It stands to reason that the bigger your breasts, the more they move and the more uncomfortable you’re likely to be.

The answer is almost always as easy as a really great bra. A bra designed with your boobs in mind is purpose-made to support the weight of your breasts. When your bra does its job, it can prevent strain in your neck and shoulders and even stave off terrible tension headaches.


The Fabulous Fit List

To save your bra from being a pain in the back, here are some things to bear in mind:
  • Make sure there’s a thick, strong band that fits like a glove
  • Wide straps can better support bigger breast sizes
  • Separated cups with a tall centre gore will keep your breasts apart
  • A front-closing bra can lessen back pain
  • If your straps are digging into your shoulders, you need more lift
  • High back support is better
  • Avoid styles with no support structure

Easing The Pain

You deserve to wear the perfect bra, so if you don’t know how to find it, have a professional fitting where they’ll look for:
  • That it’s a cosy-fit around your back
  • That it sits evenly against your body
  • That the underwire sits flush against you
