Sometimes a woman needs underthings that do more than just lift and separate. The difference between feeling fatigued after only a few minutes of walking around the mall and being able to bop around for hours may lie in a simple switch of your bra, panty, or sock!
If you're having lower back pain, perhaps a little bit of support from your underwear might help to relieve the pressure from your day-to-day activities. Gaiam Lumbarwear Back Support Underwear ($44) serves as a modern compression garment to improve your posture while activating muscles to help strengthen your core. An added bonus is that they suck in your stomach a little bit, too!
Don't forget your gluteus maximus! Butt and thigh muscles need support and attention, too, so if you're finding yourself having frequent cramps, twinges, and pains in this area, consider slipping a pair of Pearl Izumi's Infinifty Compression Short ($40) underneath your skirts to see if it helps. The material wicks away sweat while keeping you upright and sucked in.
If you're feeling upper back pain from heavy, unsupported breasts, try this Glamorise Women's MagicLift Active Support Bra ($31-41). It looks like a chic, regular bra but is as supportive as a good sports bra. It is able to give you a great shape without underwire and while correcting your upper body posture as well to help relieve pain in your shoulder, back, neck, and chest.
Finally, are your feet feeling fatigued too fast? Support hose aren't your only option to keep swelling and aching at bay. These CEP Running 02 Compression Socks ($60) are a cute and comfortable way to support your foot, ankle, shin, and calf.
So what are you waiting for? Change your underwear and see if you don't feel better!
