Some fitting tips on arthritis and bras

Having chronic pain on hands, fingers, or shoulders (or both) does not help to put on a bra with ease. It can become a daily challenge. Many women having arthritis experience their bras turn into strangers from them. Not supporting them, but actually hurting them more.

And that’s a normal consequence because a bra that is not well-fitted can sure have a negative impact on the pain. Especially if you’re dealing with a condition like arthritis.

A bra should feel comfortable, NOT hurting you even more

Getting on the bra may be difficult. And what’s more, the bra itself can increase your pain. For example, if the pressure of your bra straps is cutting in shoulders.

Trying to manage a bra can be difficult and you would need one that is very easy to put on and take off. You might find a snap or zip front so much easier than a hook system. See my selection of 7 bra styles for arthritis here
