The Bra strap syndrome is now recognised by clinicians as an entity.Wearing the wrong style or poorly fittted bra can lead to major complications like chronic shoulder pain and back pain. A classic symptom is pain in the shoulder, arms and hands and classic sign is indentations in the shoulder area.
With its’ unique design the optifit bra deals comprehensively with this syndrome. We have helped many of our clients with these symptoms. Don’t take our word for it. Here is one of our clients:
Optifit has made a huge difference for me. I was resigned to the deep indentations in my shoulders; the sheer weight that they were attempting to hold up. This was an ongoing problem all of my adult life and I just tried to cover up as best I could. The Optifit has changed all of that. Before, I had neck and shoulder pain and sometimes back pain but with Optifit this all ended with shoulders being pushed back instead of pulled down which took all the pressure off the shoulders and neck with support across the back and opened up my chest cavity so that my lungs now have space to open up and I can breathe more naturally. But most important of all I feel properly supported and this has made my confidence bloom!
It will take a week or so to adjust to the very different positioning of the Optifit and there is some tightness in your ribs as the day wears on but the body does adjust as it adapts to the new correct posture and breathing. I had to watch my bad habits didn’t creep back such as slouching and wanting the Optifit to move into the old position I was used to so I had to be be especially vigilant to check the Optifit 2 to 3 times a day. The golden rule is never pull down at the front! Instead pull up, roll over and pull down at the back and the Optifit stays in position.
The price of the Optifit is a bargain for a custom made product. I found the pre and aftercare service was excellent. Sue from the Optifit team is extremely dedicated and committed. If at all possible, try to go to the Optifit shop in person to be measured and fitted by Sue. It is very definitely worth it and if you find you are quite a distance away then consider visiting the village of Uppermill where Optifit is located as a tourist. Uppermill is nestled in lush green hills on the borders of rural Yorkshire and Dovestone Reservoir is just down the road!
