Attention ladies! Make sure your bras are fitted correctly. British health experts claim a bevy of unexpected health concerns has plagued women with above-average breast sizes who fail to find the right bra proportions.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, skin rashes, tendonitis, and even gastrointestinal problems such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have been linked to ill-fitting bras. Some specialist's even suggest a proper fitting bra can prevent the need for breast reduction surgery.

"Traditional bras are often too tight around the ribs, creating a pivot point in the middle of the back, dividing it into two smaller areas that can't work as effectively," said Richard Moore, a consultant osteopath and sports massage therapist from Nottingham, England.

"The lack of support at the front can also bring the upper back forward and to compensate for this, many women end up tilting their heads backwards."

"All these slight but continuous maladjustments put unnecessary pressure on the diaphragm, which if you are sitting at a desk for hours each day, affect the breathing mechanism and can also be a direct link to digestion problems and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)," he added.

"Overly tight straps not only cause skin irritations but reduce blood flow, affecting the nerves and contribute to tension headaches."

Clothing company Jockey claims its recently unveiled Volumetric Fit System can save the day, boasting a more accurate measurement for bra sizes.

Applying years of experimental research, specialists involved with developing Jockey's bra fitting system claim a sizing kit featuring 10 pre-molded cup sizes makes this wireless bra option the last you'll ever need.
