A 20-year-old female asked:

is it bad to exercise without a bra? is it bad to jump up and down without one on?

Can be harmful: If you require a bra to support your breasts regularly, then wearing an exercise bra is a good idea.Prolonged swinging of the breasts without support over the years will take its toll in later years. There is also the matter of comfort. Some exercise without one is likely OK, but you should be the judge.Running long distances, or short distances very fast does cause significant movement. Good Luck

How can I find the best maternity bra?

Lactation consultant: Most maternity stores that sell clothes have a section for maternity bras that are made weli. In addition, most hospitals where babies are delivered have lactation specialists on staff. Many of those specialists may be able to fit you for not only a maternity bra, but (even more importantly) a lactation bra that provides good support and opens for breast feeding. Buy those after the baby is born.

Yes: You can wear adhesive bras, but you will notice that your breasts may become more sensitive making it hurt more to remove them. Also, the size of your breasts will change and adhesive bras stop working well for breasts larger than a c or d cup.

How can I use an exercise app to prevent cravings?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Seema Patel

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.
