This is from a lady who suffered Thoracic Outlet Syndrome pain during pregnancy:

At the beginning of the second trimester of my Pregnancy I started experiencing numbness and very painful tingling in my arms and hands. It got a lot worse at night, so much so that I couldn’t sleep for more than an hour at a time before waking up in pain.

The painful tingling and numbness was caused by a network of nerves being pinched in an area above the first rib and collarbone. This area’s called Thoracic outlet area which is a kind of shared highway for arteries beneath the collarbone that which supply blood to the arms, as well as a network of nerves to the arms and hands.

Unfortunately, the extra weight and downward pull of my breasts brought on by pregnancy were constricting the Thoracic outlet and pinching the nerves painfully.

I desperately needed relief from the constant tingling and sharp pains- and I desperately needed a good night sleep. Basically, I needed to have the weight lifted of my chest. Then I read on the net how another mum-to-be who also suffered from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome found relief when she got a Beauty Bra (formally known as Jeunique bra). Amazed, I went to my wardrobe and got out the Bra I bought for my wedding,(it had given me a great look on my wedding day!) It had become too small because of my pregnancy, but I was desperate so put it on anyway. Within an hour most of the tingling and numbness had gone. I went to sleep that night with the bra on and had a much better sleep than before.

Ah, what relief! As soon as I could I contacted Janice Cleghorn   for a fitting to get the right size bra and within hours the last signs of discomfort disappeared altogether.

Beauty Bras (formally known as Jeunique) really are unique, there’s nothing out there quite like it (believe me, I’ve looked).  The banderine is a brilliant invention which lifts the breast to the position where natured and body mechanics designed then to be. (Before gravity and stretch straps let them down!)  Most importantly where I needed then to be!
