For all of their wonder and allure, breasts can be painful and misery inducing. My adolescent years were the often heard mix of hormones and first times. In my early 30s a woman became my wife and brought with her something I was clueless about. As our relationship advanced, I saw the toll that my wife was enduring. I learned all the signs: daily aching back, grooves in shoulders from bra straps, rounded shoulders and an overall miserable feeling. Shopping for bras was frustrating and almost tear inducing for her and left me avoiding making some surprise purchases.
