5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in A Quality Bra
It may not feel like investing in quality underwear makes much of a difference in your everyday life. After all, you're the only one looking at it, so what difference does it make if you're wearing a silky balconette or a heavily stained sports bra? But your underwear has more of an impact than you might think. A properly fitting bra is essential for excellent health, and investing in quality underwear dramatically improves your mental and physical well-being. Here are five reasons why investing in quality underwear is worth your while.
1. Support is Everything
Having a properly fitting bra improves your posture and makes you less likely to develop spinal problems or back pain. This is especially true for larger-breasted women that might require some extra support. If your bra is poorly designed or the wrong size, it could do more harm than good for your back and chest. Our bras are specifically designed with your comfort in mind! The Corin Perfect Bra was designed based on an 18-month oncological study. Using thermovision technology and 3D computer modeling programs and by studying heat distribution on the body, researchers created a bra that provides scientifically proven optimal support without putting unnecessary pressure on the chest.
2. You Will Find the Perfect Fit
Many of the bigger lingerie store chains aren't giving you your best fit on purpose. Victoria's Secret is known for its poor fittings for a variety of reasons, as outlined in an article here. But the main reason you aren't likely to find your perfect match at big chains is because they sell such a narrow range of sizes that they'll try to squeeze you into a 34DD instead of the much more comfortable 38H. They simply don't offer a wide enough range of styles and sizes to give you the best fit. Most big-name bra stores go up to about a triple D. At Bra Spectrum, however, we have band sizes from 30-44 and cup sizes ranging from A-L, and we have a team of expertly trained bra-fitting specialists, so you are sure to find something that fits you correctly.
3. It's Important for Your Mental Health
Not only is the proper bra important for your physical health, but it also affects your mental and emotional well-being. You want to be comfortable in your own skin and like what you see in the mirror! By investing in quality underwear that fits you correctly and flatters your body, you can improve your body image and confidence. Even though your bra is under your clothes, there is a very visible difference through your clothing when you wear a good-quality bra versus a poor-quality one. And if you're feeling better and more confident, you'll look better too.
4. You're Feeding Sustainable Fashion
So much of cheap underwear from clothing corporations are churned out of sweatshops that exploit their workers. They mass produce poor-quality clothing that rips or gets ruined easily, and then it ends up in our landfills only a few years later. The US Department of Labor found evidence of forced and child labor in countless countries including Argentina, China, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam (2018).
According to the World Resources Institute, one garbage truck's worth of clothes is thrown out every second. At Bra Spectrum, we have partnerships with ethically sourced designers and companies that produce clothes built to last. Our Ewa Bien Diamond Collection is even made from
recycled plastic bottles! When you buy a bra from Bra Spectrum, you can feel confident that your purchase is just as good for you as it is for the rest of the world.
5. You're investing in Yourself
Self-care is about more than manicures and face masks. It's about investing in quality essentials that will set you up to be your best self. By getting yourself a high-quality, supportive bra, you are telling yourself that your comfort is worth that extra effort and attention. When you get dressed in the morning, you are starting your day with an act of self-appreciation, and you can carry that same reverence for yourself and your well-being throughout your day. To paraphrase Shakespeare in Hamlet "Clothes maketh the (wo)man."
