Avoid wearing tight clothing and this will help the free flow of the lymph channels.  Even a small restriction causes a drastic reduction in the amount of fluid that gets through.  This can result in congestion.  This is especially true of bras that can not only restrict the flow of lymph but blood too. Research suggest that 70-90% of us are wear the wrong size bra! If they are too small or lack adequate support  we have the shoulder straps as tight as possible to take the weight.  Would you consider walking around in the wrong size shoes? Nearly every bra on sale these days is underwired, this causes further problems. The metal can affect the delicate electrical currents that control the distribution of lymph between certain ribs.

From the book Dressed to Kill by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer where they state that : –

*Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer.

* Women who wore bras more than 12 hours per day, but not to bed, had a 1 out of 7 risk.

* Women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 52 risk.

* Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer.

They also found that women that exercised had a reduced risk of breast cancer which could well be because of improved lymph flow.  Breast movement is important as every bounce as you move about gently massages the breasts clearing out toxins and waste where you have the free flow of lymph and blood.
