Some people have been blaming bras for some time for causing breast cancer. Supporters claim that bras restrict the flow of lymph fluids, thus causing toxic chemicals to build up in the breast area. They also claim that bras cause inflammation in the breasts, which leads to cyst formation and increases the risk of breast cancer. However, this isn’t true.

Plus size women often face the challenge of having their breasts adequately supported while sleeping. With unsupported full breasts, they may find it uncomfortable to change positions, especially if they usually toss and turn at night. An improperly fitting bra wouldn’t cut it, so these full-figured women should consider wearing suitable bras for plus size women. The right bra should also be used during activities like exercising, so the wearer can move optimally and be comfortable in the various positions that are typical in a workout. A full-figured woman need secure support particularly in high-impact exercises like running and aerobics; as well as in workouts that require flexibility, such as yoga or Pilates.

If you had breast reconstruction, wearing ordinary undergarments may not be enough. Instead, you may need special plus size bras for ultimate support and comfort. These bras may be worn throughout the day and even while you sleep, so your breasts are braced against movements that can be severely uncomfortable. A patented plus size bra, such as EmbraceBra™, is specifically intended to be worn after thoracic or plastic surgeries. Its innovative design includes a patented pillow that can be inserted as a cushion between the breasts, lengthened, non-underwire cups where the support band is away from incision sites; and a front zipper made of nylon, so the garment would be easy to don and remove. Its soft, hypoallergenic fabric helps avoid any irritation to sensitive post-surgical skin.

In the past, women had limited choices for their clothing, especially in sizes. Fortunately, the brassiere industry seems to have been aware of this need since there are currently more plus-size bra varieties for curvy women.
Ladies with bra sizes ranging from C to E now have a plethora of shops to visit to buy their intimate apparel. The styles vary from full coverage to demi cups. For the un-oriented, bras with demi cups are those that cover only the bottom part of the breasts, leaving the upper part exposed. Most brassiere experts recommend plus-size bras with full coverage for women with curvaceous figures.

Blaming bras as a contributing factor to breast cancer has been around for quite some time. Supporters claim that bras restrict the flow of lymph fluids, thus causing toxic chemicals to build up in the breast area. They also claim that bras cause inflammation in the breasts, which leads to cyst formation and increases the risk of breast cancer. Ignorance on the proper selection of underwear could be a reason for the spread of the myth, in light of possible physical effects related to brassieres. Dr. Joanna Scurr from Portsmouth University, for instance, reviewed studies and found that constricted movement in the breast area could, indeed, stretch ligaments and place tension on the skin. Bigger women are found to be more prone to this, and can suffer discomfort and pain as a consequence. The ideal and best bras for plus-size women, smaller women, and other body types must offer correct support without sacrificing ease of movement, as failure to do so could eventually lead to health.
