I’d like to invite you to consider how much you support your girls… your boobs!!!
From my experience as an RMT, the amount of support from your bra that you give your girls is directly related to the amount of tension in your back, neck and shoulder muscles.
If you want to offer your girls more support, please consider these 3 tips when choosing a bra that will help your boobs to be comfortably lifted and separated:
- Your rib cage: Get YOUR proper measurement that fits snug and choose a material that’s comfortable and moves WITH YOU. This area targets the side body muscles that assist in shoulder blade stability and keeps the girls from wobbling to and fro.
- The cups: You know you’ve got the right fit when your cup does NOT runneth over and you DO NOT have a uni-boob. Placing the girls comfortably in their own cups helps the neck and mid back muscles with their job of keeping the upper body lifted.
- Shoulder Straps: Adjustable! One size does NOT fit all! Be empowered to choose how much lift YOU want to give to YOUR back and shoulder muscles. For a little extra assistance to the mid back muscles, give the racer back or “T” style a try. You can even buy a device that clips on to your old school style bra and “ta-da” you have an immediate racer back or “T” style support.
Show your girls some love! Take them to your local department store or specialty shop and have a professional measure them up right so you and your boobs can feel supported all day long!
