A posture bra is an exoskeleton. It’s an external cover that provides additional support and protection for your torso. The external support helps distribute your front weight (tummy and breasts) more evenly throughout your frame. You will notice a more upright and aligned posture, with additional back support. You will no longer feel the need to lean forward or slump. Your spine pressure and muscle strain are greatly reduced. A posture bra makes it easier to sit, stand, or stoop. Your back gets more strength and support.
The bra’s signature design feature is the wide pair of crisscross “swooshes”, which are added to its full-coverage back panel. Each swoosh starts near the shoulder and spreads its support downwards across the back. This is not like traditional bra straps which can dig into your shoulders. This design, along with its wide sides, is key to shifting your front weight towards your waist and back, pulling your shoulders back to support your spine, and allowing you to stand straighter.
The Benefits Of A Posture Bra
A posture bra has many benefits. This bra style is popular with large-breasted women because it reduces breast weight. Women with weak back muscles, back pain, and tension headaches as well as those suffering from shoulder pain or back pain will also find relief. Styles with full-torso coverage, such as the famous girdle, not only make it easier to stand straight but also give you a flattering and natural shape of your torso. Many claims that wearing one makes you look taller. It is not a crutch to reduce muscle tone. Wearing one consistently can help you and your body improves your posture.
Many posture bras have wide straps to help with weight displacement and avoid strap digging. The bras are most snug in the front. This means that women with tight breasts might not find the right fit. To provide strong coverage and reduce back fat and bulges, the sides and back are significantly sized. They are often wireless to provide comfort and wider to capture all of your breast tissue. This bra is great to wear underneath button-up blouses because it tends to be a minimizer. It’s wireless and minimized, so if your center panel doesn’t look tacky, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re not the right cup size. This bra style has a tall back and wide coverage.
How To Wear A Bra With Posture?
Many women use their posture bras as their daily bras. It is a great idea to have one in your bra collection. It is a great option if you suffer from sudden shoulder or back pain. If you are a weightlifter, it’s an excellent choice. If you are going to be sitting for a long time, it is worth considering wearing it. It is great for long car rides. It’s great to have when you are doing any activity that requires you to bend forward, such as sewing or cooking.
It should be used as a preventative. It stabilizes your posture and reduces micro-injuries from incorrect movement.
