Why wear an Underwire Bra

As per the Wikipedia, An underwire bra (also under wire bra, under-wire bra, or underwired bra) is a brassiere with a wire built into the underside of the cup intended to lift, separate, shape, and provide additional support for a woman's breasts.

The underwire bra is designed to provide additional lift to the breast. Underwire Bras can be found in many different styles and colors. Given below are some benefits of wearing Underwire Bra.

Benefits of Wearing Underwire Bra

Everyone who has tried different types of bras would agree that underwire bras are a good choice and are comfortable and make the busts look better. The reason for it may be the better or added support these bras provide to the breast so that it looks in shape.

However, many people say that these bras are uncomfortable or even painful. I guess the reason why they may feel so is because they may be using the wrong size. If you find a size uncomfortable you may try a few different sizes and brands on until you find one that fits comfortably. It is every important to wear the right sized bra as a wrong fit can cause damage to the breast tissue and the back. Tissue damage can eventually result in sagging. In fact, going bra free can also cause sagging. Many people relate wearing underwire bras with increased risk of Breast Cancer. According to a study done by researchers in Harvard in 1991, those who wear bras are more prone to the risk of breast cancer than those who go bra free. But the fact is that wearing any wrong sized bra for prolonged periods can cause such a condition. If you wear a bra of the correct size this does not happen. When you wear a correct size underwire bra, it offers more support to the breasts and also prevents the bouncing of breasts reducing the chances of tissue damage or pain.

Since going bra free can cause our valuable assets to sag, it is in our best interests to wear a bra and of the right size. However, it is better to sleep braless and wear camisoles or tank tops with built in bras while at home or relaxing to ensure proper circulation of blood in the area.

      People find underwire bras uncomfortable NOT ALWAYS because they're wearing the wrong size. Think about it: it's a tight fabric thing wrapped around your ribcage - which extends with every breath! The mere concept of a tight-fitting (and this is what a "well-fitting" bra means for bra fitters) bra is not to be comfortable but to push the breasts up and to the middle of your chest. If underwire (or other typical) bras were meant to be comfortable, they'd be LOOSE and THIN and SOFT - as this is what comfortable underwear is! Our bodies don't like tight-fitting things on them. And they don't like hard, metal things on them (like wires). Just think about it for a second. You wouldn't wear panties with a wire in them, would you? Hell, you wouldn't wear any panties that cause any sort of discomfort, excessive heat or anything like that. Wearing bras all the time, we get so used to the PRESSURE they put on our bodies that we hardly notice it. But it's there. And it's dangerous (blocking the lymph flow).

      THINK. The look of perky teenage breasts is not the most important. Grown up women have grown up breasts, and grown up bodies in general, it's time we embraced this radical notion that our body is our temple, our home, everything we have. No sacrifice is needed for it to look HUMAN.

      I prefer an underwire bra too. When I wear it without forms it fits better. And if the size is right it not uncomfortable at all.

      Thanks for the comment GmaGoldie. Breast implants for army women? That is something new I am hearing. Personally. sleeping with bra on makes me uncomfortable.

      My mother's doctor advised to sleep in a bra. Sadly I was not blessed with her proportions - one thing I may never need to worry about.

      Funny thing, I was told about the Australian army - for females, they give free breast implants. Studies have shown increased confidence when the bust is larger.

      Personally, the under wire is the very best for me. Wearing the right size is sometimes difficult. Men have it way too easy. No bra, no make-up - oh my!
