We recently wrote a blog about our bamboo bras (you can read it here), which includes lots of reasons why they’re an excellent option for anyone who chooses to wear a bra.
In honour of International Women’s Day, we thought that we would delve further into this area and talk about how our range of bralettes can improve your breast health, whilst you enjoy non-padded, non-wired comfort!
Bamboo Bras Aid Lymphatic Flow
The lymphatic system is part of the immune system, and works to help protect the body from infection and disease. It does this by flushing out cellular waste and maintaining the body’s fluid level. Wearing a padded or underwired bra can create internal congestion due to the constant pressure that is exerted, even if the garment is not too tight.
Our bamboo bras offer adequate support and avoid this problem, allowing your immune system to keep functioning properly.
Bamboo Bras Can Help You Sleep Better
The unnatural design of padded and underwired bras has been suggested to negatively impact upon our sleep. An experiment conducted by doctors Lee, Hyun and Tokura found that wearing this style of underwear resulted in lower levels of melatonin.
Melatonin is the hormone that regulates our sleep/wake cycles. Those with reduced levels are more likely to wake up in the night, experience difficulty drifting off and have generally less restful sleep.
Breathe Easy With Bamboo Bras
This one is perhaps more obvious, but is definitely worth mentioning. Wearing a poorly fitting underwire bra can restrict your breathing and put pressure on your diaphragm.
Whilst uncomfortable for everyone, this may be particularly problematic for those who struggle with anxiety, as difficulty breathing is a common symptom of this condition.
People who suffer with Panic Disorder may be particularly strongly affected, as this restriction may trigger ‘catastrophic misinterpretation of bodily sensations’, or the perception of innocuous bodily sensations as dangerous.
The rubbing and irritation from clasps and wires can be incredibly annoying, and if you wear underwire bras you have probably experienced the dreaded stab of metal when the wire breaks through the fabric. A sharp scratch and a bra in the bin.
You can say goodbye to all of the hassle with our bamboo bras. No hooks, no fuss, just beautifully soft material. (This also means that they may last longer as they withstand washing better.)
It’s time to end your relationship with uncomfortable, unhealthy bras!
