Bra Wannabe's are totally O.T.T

I recently read an article called “Why a new bra could change your life” I read the title and thought “I totally agree!” so I was eager to read on.
It was THE most over the top article I have read in my life listen these absurd statements.

•“When your bra is too tight around your back, this can restrict the movement of your diaphragm; In turn this squashes your oesophagus, leading to restricted digestion and reflux.”

HOW TIGHT WOULD THAT BRA HAVE TO BE SERIOUSLY?

•The Cure:
“Ditch the restrictive bra and wear a supportive singlet instead,” says Cooper. “This will reduce the band of tension wrapped around your body.”

SURE LET YOUR GIRLS HANG FREE THAT WILL DO WONDERS FOR YOUR POSTURE! NOT TO MENTION THE VISUAL.

•“If you experience pins and needles in your arms or hands, try loosening your bra straps. “Straps that dig in to your shoulder can cut off the nerve supply,”

HOW TIGHT WOULD THE STRAPS HAVE TO BE?

•An errant underwire poking into your chest is doing more than just irritating you. “Breast tissue can become congested when it’s compressed like this. When toxins can’t drain from your breast, small harmless lumps may form. This doesn’t cause cancer – if you’re used to lumpy breasts, it makes it much harder to detect when something is really wrong.”
I’M SORRY; I’D THINK YOU WOULD KNOW IF THE UNDERWIRE IS WRONG WHEN IT’S DIGGING INTO YOUR FLESH! WOULD YOU REALLY CONTINUE TO WEAR IT?

The Cure:
“Go braless when you can,” says Cooper. “Allowing your breasts to move naturally helps toxins drain.”
PLEASE DO THIS AT NIGHT, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOUSE WITH OUT A BRA ON.

She did have one point I do actually agree on that isn’t totally over the top.

Let the Bra Queen tell you the facts, I’ll keep it real!


If you DO NOT wear a supportive bra, your back WILL over compensate for the weight of your breasts causing your to slouch. This in turn will over stretch your muscles and put your back out. It MAY cause you headaches.
If you are just pulling any old bra off the shelf and saying “Yeah that looks like my size” then I guarantee you you’re not.
Look in the mirror on your side, if your boobs are still heading south WITH a bra on then you are wearing the wrong size NO MATTER what your size is.
If your bra is ridding up, straps are falling down, you have 4 boobs or your boobs are falling out of the bottom for the love of god GET FITTED and you really won’t know yourself!

Can't tell you how many times I've heard that urban myth that underwire gives you breast cancer! I'm sorry - what a crock.

I'd hate for my breasts to go free, or even just wear a singlet - that would be PAINFUL!

I have been 'fitted' by young girls in bra shops that know how to put a tape measure to your body but then don't know what to do with the numbers!!! I still end up badly fitted/wrong size bras....go figure :(

Sany, I know Professional Fitters my A ;-)
I was measured by the Store Manager she measured me as a 12D and I am a 10G, she couldn't read the tape.
