Take your bra seriously!
Did you know that most women around the world refrain from doing any sort of physical exercise because of excessive breast motion? However, did you think that this could be just because you haven’t worn a fitting bra? Bra is quite important no matter you realize it or not. If a bra can make you confident then it can also make your look entirely disproportionate.
An unfit bra can lead to musculoskeletal problems (Neck, back and upper limb neural symptoms) and if your breasts are supported by straps then a lot of pressure would build-up on your shoulders leading to back ache, instead find a bra which supports from beneath and not by straps. Wearing tight bra can stop blood circulation and can lead to breathing and skin problems whereas a good fitting bra can decrease fatigue and prevent damaging the breast tissue.
