The Custom Fit Bras support the bust
without underwires 

What some prominent female physicians say about the
relationship between the use of underwire bras and the risk of disease.

   Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D., Univ. of Vermont College of Medicine author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom,  (Bantom Books 2002; page 344)  writes "Stop wearing an underwire bra." Too often this kind of bra cuts off circulation of both blood and lymph fluid around the breast, chest wall, and surrounding tissue. She goes on to say how important it is to "learn about your breasts" "Understand your breasts' anatomy... Gently massage your breasts at least once per month, making sure to sweep your hands up into your armpits (where the lymph nodes from the breasts drain). You might consult with a massage therapist for help in learning how to do this."

    Dr. Jesse Hanley, M.D., in her book: What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause, (Warner Books, 1999),  Dr. Hanley encourages her patients not to wear underwire bras or even tight bras, except for special occasions because they block the lymph glands under the arms, around the breast and chest wall. "Lymph glands play an important role in draining toxins from the breast."

The evidence for a connection between wearing bras and Breast Disease is certainly sufficient for further study by the medical community. Meanwhile, individual women with or without fibrocystic conditions have promising alternatives to consider.

    Nina L. Diamond in her book Purify Your Body: Natural Remedies for Detoxing from 50 Everyday Situations recommends:

  • Wear the correct bra size. Make sure it's not too tight.
  • Never sleep with a bra on.
  • Go braless as often as possible.
  • Wear a bra less than 12 hours daily.
  • Do self massage of the lymph glands under each arm, next to your breasts, at least a few times a week.

    The Bust Has NO Muscle, The muscle lies under the breast. Without the proper support during physical activity, apart from the discomfort, in time, the bust will elongate until it rests on the abdomen. It is the opinion of many medical professionals that heat build up may be a contributing factor of a variety of breast conditions.

    The Custom Fit Bras offer lift, and support of the bust, without the use of underwires. Each Custom Fit Bra is designed with a patented support system. This patented support system consists of a shelf like support. This "Shelf" consists of a firm fabric which lifts the bust UP, and OFF the abdomen, keeping the bust and abdomen cooler. This patented support system achieves maximum support without the use of underwires.

    The Custom Fit Bras offer the Largest Cup Sizes, in bands 28 to 52. The larger cup sizes, available in most brands of the Custom Fit Bras, offer full coverage of the larger bust, and enhancement for the smaller bust. This removes the overflow, underflow, and extra lumps and bumps often associated with improperly fitting department store bras.

    Bras are worn to improve appearance, self confidence and comfort. For clothing to fit properly, the bust line is built into dresses and other clothing, with the bust line midway between the shoulder and the elbow. Bras with underwires leaves portions of the bust resting on the rib cage and, in most cases, causes heat build up, rashes and other irritation under the bust where the breast tissue is forced to lie on the rib cage, creating a "dumped in front" matronly appearance.

    An attractive, lifted look, can be achieved by the Custom Fit bras without suffering from the pressure of the underwires on the lymph nodes under the arms and along the breast bone. Some fuller busted ladies need the bust lifted to allow circulation of air between the bust and the abdomen. The underwire bras, do not lift the bust off the chest wall, contributing to perspiration and heat build up.

    The Cups of the Custom Fit Bra, drop down, allowing all of the breast tissue to fill the cup. The drop down cup allows access to the lymphatic vessel massage and makes the custom fitted bra an ideal choice as a nursing bra. The bra becomes a more efficient containment and support system when put on properly. Lowering the cups allows the breast tissue to be completely contained in the cup, rather than compressing the breast tissue onto the rib cage. To take full advantage of this feature, the wearer will Bend over, lower the cups, allow gravity to help the breast tissue enter the cup. The cups will then contain the entire bust. Insert the opposit hand through the support triangle of the bra, gently knead (don't pull) the breast tissue forward into the cup, the tissue will fill the cup, and the lymphatic vessels receive an important massage.
