Questions and Answers about Bras

Can Bra Cause Lump?

There is no definitive answer to this question as there is no concrete evidence that bras cause lumps. 

However, some women report experiencing lumpiness and discomfort after wearing a bra, so it is possible that they are sensitivities to certain materials or tightness of the band. 

If you experience any discomfort while wearing a bra, it is important to consult with a medical professional to rule out any underlying health conditions. Additionally, make sure you are wearing the right size bra and that it fits comfortably. 

if you are still experiencing discomfort, there are many brands of bralettes and sports bras that are designed for comfort and support. Experiment with different styles until you find one that works for you. Laceland Lingerie takes care of that. Our bras are perfect.

Can Bras Cause Breathing Problems?

There is some evidence that wearing bras can cause breathing problems, especially for women who are larger-breasted. Bras constrict the ribcage and restrict breathing. They may also cause the breasts to sag over time, as they lose their natural support.

Alternatives to bras that provide similar support without restricting breathing include sports bras and bralettes.

Can Bra Cause Breast Cancer?

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that wearing a bra can cause breast cancer. Some people believe that bras constrict the breasts and prevent lymph drainage, which could lead to the development of cancer. However, there is no concrete evidence to support this claim.

Bras do not seem to have any correlation with breast cancer incidence rates, despite numerous studies on the topic. In fact, one study even found that women who did not wear bras had a higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who did wear bras. This may be due to the fact that women who don't wear bras tend to have less dense breasts, which are also at a higher risk for developing cancer.

Can Bra Cause Back Pain?

Yes. While there are many potential causes of back pain, wearing a bra that is too tight or does not fit well can certainly be one of them. A correctly fitting bra should support your breasts without putting excess pressure on your back or neck. If you are experiencing back pain, it's a good idea to visit a lingerie store to get fitted for the correct size and style of bra.

Can Bra Cause Rib Pain?

It's very possible that your bra is causing rib pain. A poorly fitting bra can cause all sorts of problems, including rib pain. If your bra is too tight, it can put pressure on your ribs and cause pain. It's also possible that your bra isn't providing enough support, which can lead to tension in the muscles and ligaments around your ribs and cause pain.

If you're experiencing rib pain, it's important to get fitted for a new bra. A professional fitter will be able to help you find a bra that fits properly and provides the support you need. You may also want to try a sports bra, which is designed to provide more support than a regular bra.

What Bra Size Am I?

There is no one definitive answer to this question. Bra size can vary depending on a number of factors, including band size, cup size, and the shape and separation of your breasts. 

Are you struggling to find the perfect fitting bra? You're not alone. In fact, according to a recent study, an estimated 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. But with a few simple measurements, you can easily find your perfect fit. First, start by wrapping a measuring tape around your chest, just under your arms. 

Then measure around the fullest part of your chest. Next, subtract your band size from this bust measurement. The difference denotes your cup size. 0=AA; 1=A; 2=B; 3=C; 4=D; 5=DD; 6=F; 7=FF; 8=G; 9=GG; 10=H; 11=HH; 12=J; 13=JJ; 14=K and so on. Combine your band and cup size, so you have a number followed by a letter, for example: 34F. This is your benchmark measurement. Now that you know your benchmark measurement, you can easily find bras that will fit you perfectly. So next time you're shopping for bras, don't be afraid to take out that measuring tape and find your perfect fit. With a little effort, you'll be sure to find the right bra for you.

- To find your band size, measure around your torso just below your bust. This number should be the basis for your band size (e.g., 32, 34, 36 etc.).
