5 COMMON UNDERWIRE MYTHS BUSTED

BODY & MIND

At Bendon Lingerie, we're all about embracing and celebrating every aspect of women's intimate wear. In this blog, we're diving deep into the world of underwire bras to debunk some common myths. Get ready for some eye-openers and learn why underwire bras might just be the missing piece in your lingerie drawer.

But First, What Exactly is an Underwire Bra?

An underwire bra is a marvel of lingerie engineering, designed to provide support and a beautiful shape. It features a sturdy wire, expertly encased, that contours the base of the breasts, offering a mix of comfort, shape, and support.

Why is the Underwire Bra So Misunderstood?

Underwire bras often get a bad rap. Let's set the record straight and explore why these bras are much more than they're made out to be.

The 5 Most Common Myths on Underwire Bras

Underwire Bras are Uncomfortable

Think underwire bras are uncomfortable? It's all about the right fit. With a correctly sized underwire bra, comfort and support go hand-in-hand. Let's break down how to find your perfect fit.

The underwire is the Only Part of a Bra That Provides Support

It's a common belief, but the truth is the support of a bra comes from its entire design – not just the underwire. Let's explore how different parts of a bra contribute to overall support.

Underwire in Bras Can Cause Breast Cancer

This myth has been a topic of discussion for years, but there's no scientific evidence to support it. We'll look at why breast health is much more than just about the type of bra you wear.

It's Common for the Underwire to Poke Your Skin

If your underwire is poking you, chances are it's a sizing issue or wear and tear. We'll guide you on choosing the right bra and when it's time for a new one.

Underwired Bras are Not Safe While Breastfeeding

There's a misconception about underwired bras and breastfeeding. Let's bust this myth by understanding the difference between unsafe and unfit and how proper fit is vital.
