Back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches … can we really place the blame on the weight of your breasts? If, like me, you have wondered how much your treasured boobs actually weigh this answer may astound you!
If you wear a size 12 - 14 back band, check out the approximate weights of your breasts in a few different cup sizes:
- Your D Cup breasts weigh about 920g which is equivalent to a pineapple!
- Your G Cup breasts weigh about 2.1kg which is the equivalent to two litres of milk!
- Your K Cup breasts weigh about 3.4kg which is the equivalent to a newborn baby!
Now that you’ve visualized how much your breasts might weigh it’s pretty convincing why having a properly fitting bra is so crucial. In fact its likely to be 'a weight off your chest’
A snug bra band with well-fitting cups will lift and support your breasts, giving you a shape you are happy with while also relieving your annoying shoulder and neck pain that often happens if your straps are forced to take the brunt of the support work.
Your bra straps should only ever support approximately 10% of the weight of your breasts! If your back band isn't firm, the weight of your pineapples (breasts!) can make the back band ride up which brings your shoulders forward, creating bad posture. When you consider how much your boobs weigh it’s no wonder a lack of support can result in back, shoulder and neck pain or even headaches. You just need to get fitted by our expert Brava fitters and you'll be supported and able to stand up straight, thanks to our amazing bra fit magicians.
To really understand the needs of fuller busted customers, our friends at Prima Donna had all the males in the office willingly wear the weight equivalent of an E Cup bra for a full day. By undertaking this exercise the men have been through it all and now completely grasp the importance of having a properly fitting bra!
