I’ve been hearing for awhile that wired bras, push-ups, padding and all those elastic straps that hold everything in place were incredibly bad for women’s health. This all puts pressure on the lymph nodes and interrupts the blood flow and movement in your body. (This idea is controversial, however, but it certainly makes sense to me.) And it even seems that more women are wearing LESS bra these days instead of MORE – it almost seems that there is a shift in trends.
Though it has taken me a while to actually get rid of the wirey thingies just because I guess replacing all my underpinnings never made it to the top of my list.
But I finally did it.
It took some coaxing.
One of my favorite holistic healers in Manhattan, Maria Petrova, was very convincing in her suggestion to wear softer, thinner, less restricting bras without any metal and padding.
Unfortunately I wore that stuff for as long as I can remember. I guess the reasons WHY could be a whole other post. Something to do with keeping up with an artificial image of sexiness and thinking I needed a little something extra in order to look good. But I’m done with that and happy to finally be feeling good and feminine in my own skin (which actually feels even sexier.)
Let’s get this discussion started. Do you have any opinions on wearing wires, push-ups or padding? Do you feel better/sexier with them or without? And have you also noticed that trends are maybe changing?
