BAD WRONG

Are you wearing the wrong size bra?

* If the bra band is rubbing, your breasts are too big for the bra.

* Similarly, if your band is on the tightest hook and you can still slide it easily, then your bra is too big

* Check your straps: if they are stuck in your shoulders or fall constantly and need to be tightened, then your bra does not fit properly.

* Just because it's one size in a store does not mean it will be the same size in all stores.

* If you have a "boob" bulge, either on the front or on the sides of your bra, then it does not fit well.

* Try to get professionally every six months, and use your bra firmly to ensure the best fit and room to move.

* Increase the life of your bra by washing them inside a laundry bag and avoiding the dryer.

When it comes to our underwear, even if you think that what you wear does the job, in fact, 80 percent of us wear a wrong size bra.

And the wrong size bra can put pressure on the shoulders and cause pain in the lower back in the long term.

"The most important thing with fasteners, besides getting the correct cup size, is to get a bra that fits properly in the back," said Dell-Maree.

The expert added that too tight bras tend to "sit" on the back and pull him forward. "

"Too thin straps can also push the shoulders forward," he added.

If you are looking for the ideal bra, look for something that fits well on your back and that has wide straps, that will firmly hold the upper part of your body and ensure that the spine is seated in the correct position.

The band should also sit tight against the body for a close and proper fit.

LARGE SIZE POCKETS

Many of us are guilty of throwing everything we own into the bottom of our purse.

But carrying a giant bag full of everything you have can cause health problems such as shoulder pain and discomfort along the way.

"Carrying a heavy bag constantly on one shoulder should be avoided," Dell-Maree explained.

You will drag your shoulder down so that it is sitting and out of alignment with the other shoulder.

The first thing the posture expert recommends is to remove the hindrance from your bag.

& # 39; Nobody needs to carry a lot of things & # 39; said he.

"If you really have many things to carry, consider changing to a backpack, which will not generate as much tension in the shoulders as a bag that pulls the shoulders down."

TIGHT JEANS

They are a trend loved by women around the world.

But any clothing that restricts your movement, particularly tight jeans, can affect your posture and eventually cause problems in your neck or back.

"I have a real bee on the hood of tight jeans with a low shot," said Dell-Maree.

"Low-rise jeans can drag the pelvis almost backward, which is really bad for the sacroiliac joints: the joints of your sacrum that are connected to the bones of the ilium by strong ligaments.

"Putting stress on this area of ​​load support can lead to low back pain."

If you must wear tight jeans, the expert recommends that you choose a pair that is higher in the waist and have a little spandex, so that the material is more elastic than restrictive.

UNDERWEAR

They can flatten our stomachs and smooth out any lumps and lumps.

But the underwear that shapes the body could also cause acid reflux, heartburn and excess pressure in the stomach.

"In terms of support summaries, although they should be firm, you still need to be able to breathe," Dell-Maree said.

"Support garments that really restrict your breathing and compress your internal organs can cause tension and pain in all kinds of different areas of the body."

Dell-Maree warned especially against the support garments that compress the ribs.

– Anyway, use these undergarments every once in a while for a special occasion, but do not make them something everyday.

SKY-HIGH STILETTOS

The stilettos high in the sky can be striking, but they are doing their health and the posture does not favor.

"To balance on stiletto heels, most people are a bit stooped," said Dell-Maree.

"Your head will also move a little forward, which can create pressure on the muscles of your neck."

If you swear by the stiletto heels, then put them sitting as much as possible, said the expert.

"Standing for hours and hours in a cocktail can create a lot of tension in the joints and muscles when the feet are not flat on the floor and the weight is easily distributed."

In addition to this, the expert warns about the excessive use of slides or straps (flip flops), which include little support and can affect the way he walks while making up for it by holding the shoes while walking.

How to counteract the damage that fashion does to your health?

"The best thing you can do to improve your posture every day is to learn how to sit, stand and walk properly, you can do this when you're sitting at your desk, walking to a cafeteria or waiting for a bus," said Dell-Maree.

HOW TO SIT:

"Move your spine from the back of your chair and sit in the front half of the chair." Place your flat feet on the floor directly below the knees with a fist-sized space between your feet and knees.

& # 39; Look straight ahead and sit as tall and relaxed as possible. Do not forget to relax your arms. As you do so, you will notice that your spine has been stacked completely so that the natural curves of the spine are restored. This is something simple that you can do frequently on your desk. As your spine builds up, transforming your posture, there will be a reduction in the compression and distortion of your joints. This is the key to eliminate discomfort and pain in your desktop.

HOW TO STAY:

"When you stand still, look forward with your feet at a distance of 10 cm." Stand as tall and relaxed as possible.Since the advent of smartphones, the standing posture for many has really gone downhill since the people are constantly looking at their phones, this pulls the neck forward resulting in a hunchback, always look forward if you can.

"You will instantly see yourself and you will feel thinner as your lower back and upper body live and your shoulders relax.This will reduce tension throughout the spine, especially in the upper torso and neck."

LIKE WALKING:

& # 39; Walk high, looking forward in a relaxed manner. Take the longest step you can comfortably. While realigning your body with "still postures" is more effective, it is still a good idea to practice a good walking technique by stretching your hamstrings.

& # 39; You will burn more calories because the longer your step is, and the higher and relaxed you are, the more muscles you will use. It will be easier for you to walk and your posture will be better. "
