In the past three years, the number of D-cup bras sold in the UK has doubled, and now accounts for a quarter of all bra sales. Interestingly, at Life Chiropractic we’ve also seen a similar increase in the number of female patients presenting neck and upper back pain; and it’s not hard to see a link between the two.
So, we’ve partnered with specialist lingerie boutique Bustles, and created a Ladies Posture Consultation service designed to remedy D-cup+ neck and back pain for good. Available from Bustles’ luxurious Chartwell Square boutique in Southend the 30 minute consultation is just £19, and will be provided by Jess Kenney, experienced Chiropractor at Life’s Southend clinic.
Why do large breasts affect the neck and back?
According to research breast cup sizes D and above can cause neck and upper back pain by altering the curvature of the spine, and having a negative impact on posture.
Jess Kenney explains; “Large breasts usually cause a significant shift in the centre of gravity, resulting in a number of effects on the musculoskeletal system. This puts massive pressure on the spinal column, and over time can cause long term back problems. To begin with this initially presents as nagging neck or back pain, but over time may lead to more serious spinal complications and nerve problems such as a ‘pinched nerve’ or ‘bulging disc’ (herniation).”
Top 5 causes of D-cup+ neck and back pain :
- Protruding chest and increased back curve
- Postural adaptations
- Shifting of the centre of gravity
- Ill-fitting bras providing little or no support
- Weight of breasts causing shoulder strap indentions
