Finding the Right Fit
By Editorial Staff
Experts estimate that at least 75% of American women are wearing the wrong bra, and according to a recent national survey, approximately 59% of U.S. women who wear a bra claim it causes them back, shoulder or neck pain.
While most women (87%) agree that comfort is key when choosing a bra, about three in five (59%) feel their bra doesn't fit right, and approximately two in five (41%) say their bra does not provide proper support.
Common complaints include discomfort from the straps (62%), the band around the ribcage (44%) and/or the underwire (25%). Women in the study tried purchasing new bras and loosening the straps, but only 12% sought professional advice on how to find a better fitting bra.
Like every other item in your wardrobe, finding the right bra requires research and dedication. But it is time well-spent, so make the investment in yourself. You'll feel like a new woman.
