Should I wear a bra in isolation?
To wear, or not to wear a bra!
It is one of the most debated loungewear subjects of self isolation! And ladies, you know what we are going to say – keep that bra on!
We found this quote from the Mail online which gives us even more reason to wear one:
“Dr Riccardo Frati of Frati Cosmetic Surgery told FEMAIL: The bra will always support and hold up the breasts and not wearing one can affect the Coopers ligament. Breasts will also naturally sag over time due to age and gravity. “
Curvy Kate Bra Whisperer, Katie Weir continues as to why we shouldn’t go braless for the entirety of self isolation:
“Without a bra we bear the entire weight of our boobs, which can lead to premature sagging, poor posture and neck ache. D cups weigh in at 1150g, G cup weigh 2300g, and J’s 2990g – you sure need to give the girls a little support so that they aren’t self isolated for the long run!”
Our Curvy Kate Bra Whisperer has seen many comments on wearing a bra vs not wearing a bra whilst in isolation and so we have compiled, our top tips for finding the right bra for you whilst you #StayHome:
“I’m not leaving the house, so why wear a bra?”
During uncertain and forever changing times like we are in, it is so important to keep a level of routine and self care. Especially for those who are now working from home at perhaps a desk which isn’t their usually set up, we need to ensure we do everything we can to maintain good posture throughout.
If you do find yourself sat down a lot opt for a our lightweight mesh Lifestyle bra, it is underwired but the bra is such a light frame that when perfectly fitted it really does have a barely there feel.
