HOW TO REDUCE LONG TERM SAGGING? GET THE RIGHT BRA NOW

bra guide

Rich women in the earlier centuries wore corsets to help elevate, reveal, and enhance the appearance of their breasts. Then, in the 1920s, the bandeau bra was introduced because wearing a bra was said to help improve posture, reduce back pain and prevent sagging. But according to many, bras were created merely for style and not for service. 

I remember the first time I was introduced to the ‘thing’, which would keep my newly expanding chest intact. I was excited. I, all of a sudden, felt like a mature woman because I now wore a ladies bra beneath my school shirt. I wanted to tell the world that I was a young lady now. I would no more be the skinny little girl I used to be. I was transforming into a woman, with a bosom, just like the ones I would admire in the ‘Femina’ magazines back then.

But, slowly, in a few months, I began to dislike the bra I was once so excited about. I felt suffocated every time I wore it. Yes, my bust size had increased, and my mom bought me a size bigger, but that one just ended up being slightly loose and unusable, which would be more irritating than the tight ones. And, loose ones are dangerous, too, especially when you jump and play during the sports period at school. Boys can always add to the discomfort of your wardrobe malfunction. So, we tried various types of bras available then but in vain. Finally, I just stuck to the one that kept my breasts in place though the lookout, for the right one, was still on.

Fast forward to when I shifted to India. India had a variety of different sizes and types of bras for various purposes, and I was amazed at the variations. There were more than 30 types of bras since the first bra was introduced, for different outfits and different events, but what I did was, buy the right bras for the right occasion. Firstly, to avoid saggy breasts, you need to know which bra to wear and when. The four basic ones I use are as follows:

  1. T-Shirt Bra – This is a good bra for daily use. A T-shirt bra is suitable for wearing under simple tops. I wear padded and wired one because I wear a lot of self-coloured tops.
  2. Though the bra strap mark is still visible on my shoulders, this type of bra is apt for stylish tops and tube dresses. The silicone band helps keep the bosom in place.
  3. This type may not be called a ‘bra’ but is fantastic for backless outfits. The only disadvantage is that you can use it around eight times only until you have to buy new ones.
  4. Sports Bra – This bra is the latest trend designed to prevent discomfort during physical activity. Those of you who run, exercise or dance, do read about this and avoid embarrassing videos of you with bouncing mammary glands.

Further, you need to know your exact cup size not only your band size. If you are actually a 34D and you are wearing a 34B, there is high possibility that your breasts will not only lump out from the sides, you will also end up with bruises by the bra strap. You need to make sure your band size is right, cup size is perfect and your straps are adjusted correctly. Then, choose your bra according to your activity, and you will have the perfect breasts until you are 50 years old at least. All the best!

    This reminded me of my first introduction to bra, and how it was a hush hush thing to go and buy from a shop. I remember a lady used to come with all sorts of ladies stuff to our society and every lady would buy her bra from her with out even knowing what are the options available out there
