is it safe to wear underwire bras everyday?

I bought some new bras yesterday as a bday present for myself, but they are underwire. I'm a size 40d...should I invest in a non-underwire for everyday use or are the underwires ok?

  • Why would underwire bras not be okay?

  • well I've read about the pressure against the body how they can cause bad circulation or something like that? That might be more for the ladies who wear them overnight though? I dont do that lol. The bras are pretty comfortable so far

  • I've been wearing an underwire bra daily for almost 20 years. Wear what fits and is comfortable for you. I've only heard that underwire is bad if you're nursing, and even that is anecdotal.

  • Of course it's safe. I think underwire gives better support...

  • I've been wearing 'em daily for about 6 years. It's hard to find any that AREN'T underwire nowadays.
