Breast Research Australia (BRA)

BRA aims to develop research, educational, commercial and clinical strategies to improve bra fit and bra design so that all females, irrespective of age, breast size, or disease status, are able to participate comfortably in physical activity and enjoy the health benefits associated with an active lifestyle.

What do we do?

Breast Research Australia (BRA) is an internationally innovative centre of excellence, which is committed to providing coordinated evidence-based research, education, and commercial and clinical services to decrease breast-related discomfort and injury so all females can participate comfortably in activities of daily living, work and recreation.

Working closely with the Biomechanics Research Laboratory at the University of Wollongong, BRA has developed an internationally unique and active research program examining the biomechanics of “Breast Health & Bra Design”. This research has investigated effective bra designs, aspects of improving bra fit, and innovative ways of educating females on how to purchase a well-fitted supportive bra for their needs.
