What are the Disadvantages of Not Wearing a Bra?

To Bra or Not To

Wearing a bra is very important for girls and women after and sometimes even before puberty. The bra's main function is to support the weight and structure of the breast while keeping the breast tissues in place.

While loose bras can damage and spoil the appearance of breasts, bras that are too tight can severely affect the ribcage, as well as cause back and neck pain. Since 80% of women out there are wearing the wrong bra size, the first step will be to size right.

While the pandemic has made a lot of us shed worry and bra altogether, we’re going to be telling you all about the disadvantages of not wearing a bra.

Disadvantages of Not Wearing a Bra

  • Not wearing a bra can cause major muscular discomfort in areas like the back, neck and shoulders, esp. if you have bigger breasts.
  • Breasts do tend to sag due to a lot of reasons like age, weight loss or gain and health issues. Not wearing a bra can further worsen the condition.
  • Not wearing a bra with certain outfits especially if they are body-hugging can ruin your overall look. It will wreck your otherwise perfect outfit and might work negatively on your confidence level.

Different types of bras come with their own set of benefits, and we’re taking you through them all to find your perfect fit.

The push-up style bras provide more support, ‘lift’ and comfort than regular, traditional bras. The additional padding and lining help breasts feel supported, while giving a naturally ‘fuller’ look, so you can ease through the day and rock your look.

3. Cotton Bra
