The Research Group in Breast Health at the University of Portsmouth and St Mary’s University Twickenham investigates a variety of important breast health issues in women of all ages. We are interested in the use of bras during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This 10-15 minute survey contains questions to identify changes to your lifestyle before and during the coronavirus pandemic and the perceived effect this has had on your breasts, bra use, bra preferences, and bra purchasing, and whether these changes are likely to be permanent. You have until Sunday 11 April 2021 to complete the survey.

There are no monetary rewards or physical incentives for completing this survey. However, every females experience is helpful!

The more responses we receive the more we will be able to find out about bra wearing habits and how the Coronavirus pandemic may have affected these. With close links to many of the world’s top lingerie and sports apparel brands, our research can inform bras on the market to improve the products available to the consumer. This is of particular importance if new habits will be carried forward into the ‘new normal’, where there may be a call for innovations to bra design!
