Women with big breasts, regardless of body size, find it hard to look for bras that’ll fit them well. Oftentimes, they’d turn to push-up bras with wiring at the bottom for the support they need. But studies also found that underwires can cause health problems like muscle pain and skin irritation.
Regardless, it’s not the end of the world yet. You can still find bras that will support your breasts without making you feel uncomfortable—may it be for daily or active use. They’ll look cute on you too. Just make sure you get your measurements right so they fit nicely.
