Women who suffer from breast pain have complained it is one of the worst experiences. There are a number of possible causes for this pain including a clogged or plugged milk duct, mastitis, a breast infection that can develop while breastfeeding, fibrocystic breast tissue, which makes the breasts dense and lumpy and may be more painful around menstruation, a history of breast surgery, using hormone therapy medications, taking certain medications, such as digitalis, methyldopa, spironolactone, diuretics, chlorpromazine, or oxymetholone, a breast injury or even water retention.
Using hot and cold therapy has been a long time remedy doctors have recommended. Certainly, a good bra that offers true comfort is very important in such cases. The new Underworks nursing and therapy bra offers the support, comfort, and adjustability of a sleep and lounging bra while providing the benefits of a multi-functional breastfeeding and hot/cold therapy bra. With built-in pockets to hold the Underworks proprietary hot/cold therapy pads, this bra helps in relieving pain and helps to clear clogged ducts.
Simply place the therapy pads in a bowl of water and heat in the microwave oven for a few seconds and reinsert into the bra pockets for a treatment of hot compress. And to relax any inflammation, place the pads in the freezer for a few minutes and then replace them back in the bra pockets for a treatment of cold compress. The straps are cushioned to prevent shoulder digging and offer you shoulder comfort. Cups are darted for that perfect fit and our 3-row hook and eye front closure offers the adjustability in size and the ease of on and off. Made in the USA.
