Why has wearing a bra become so painful for me?
Q: My bra is killing me. Wearing bras has become quite painful for me. I have tried different brands, different sizes, bigger sizes, tried wearing it lose but they hurt my shoulders, breasts and my upper back. What should I do? I am scared if I wear a lose bra or don't wear one at all my breasts will look out of shape and will start sagging early. What should I do?
A:It is difficult know the cause of the pain. I wonder if the breasts are large. Heavy breasts are a common cause of pain due to sagging and weight. A firm, tight bra usually results in pain over the clavicular region due to gutter effect. Very tight bra can cause pain due to pressure on the breast tissue. I do not see any other reason for pain unless there is breast pathology.
