Coco-Boo’s founder, Alma Brayley-Neale, gives us her top 10 reasons why being up to date with your bra fittings is so important…
1. Improves your Posture
When you wear the right size and style of bra for your shape, your posture improves. Your shoulders shouldn’t slouch and your back will straighten up due to the support that your chest receives. The right size bra will also stop any cinching in the wrong places or add extra layers to areas that don’t need them.
2. Boosts confidence
As soon as you are wearing a great bra that fits you right, you are no longer distracted by it. You can devote all your attention to being fabulous! When wearing the right size and style bra for you, it becomes a great foundation for your clothes, you will instantly notice the impact this has on your posture and confidence.
3. Improves your health
A good bra that supports your breasts perfectly can reduce back pain, skin irritation, and chest pain. This is especially applicable to women with a heavier bust. A good quality bra can work wonders for your health and wellbeing.
4. Makes it easier for you to be active
Whether it’s a supportive sports bra for working out, or a great T-Shirt bra for work, being distracted from an uncomfortable bra is not great for productivity. Your bra and lingerie should be comfortable and like a second skin so you can concentrate on the task at hand.
5. Longer lasting
Spending a few extra pounds on good quality lingerie will save you money in the long run. Not only will it last longer, but but it will also be super comfortable to wear.
6. Improves your outfit
No outfit is complete without the right lingerie underneath. When you wear the perfect style and bra size for you, it will enhance the appearance of your outfit and in turn, will hang better on your body.
7. Improves the shape of your breasts
There are approx. 9 different breast shapes identified and by wearing the right shape and style bra, you can enhance your shape and size depending on the look you desire. Women come in lots of beautiful shapes and sizes and there is no such thing as “an odd shape”, just the wrong type of lingerie!
8. Reduces back and neck pain
If you’ve been facing back or neck pain, it could be the result of wearing an incorrect bra size (particularly for larger busts). This often occurs where the band size is too big and the straps are tightened too much which will pull down on the shoulders. Or the bust is not getting the correct support from the front, resulting in the neck or back bending forward or backward to compensate.
9. Feels like you a not wearing a bra
Once you have been fitted with the perfect bra, it should feel so comfortable that you shouldn’t feel the need to whip it off at the end of the day (unless of course you want to!!).
10. Looks fabulous!
A good bra can be fun, sexy and practical! Not only making it comfortable to wear but also fun to see!
