Alleviating Back Pain

Having large breasts causes back pain for many women, even after a proper bra fitting. This blog on Venusian Glow has bra tips that'll help ease back pain caused by heavy breasts and/or bad posture caused by them. More hooks, a tighter band, and wearing a soft, lightly supportive bra to sleep are all ideas that can help.

"For a lot of people, finding the proper bra size is enough to prevent back pain. Unfortunately,this isn’t the case for everyone. Some women will still experience those discouraging backaches no matter how well-fitted their bra is. There are many causes for back pain, but having heavier boobs, or posture that is bad because of them, can really exacerbate these issues.
   Breast reductions are often touted as the only solution for breast-related back issues, and for some women, they are the best choice. But if you DON’T want to have a reduction, there are a few other tricks you can use to ease your pain."
