For Ladies: Studies Reveal Wearing A Bra Is Bad For Your Health

Ladies, most of you would agree that it feels comforting to head home and take off our bra at the end of a long day.

Recent studies by scientists now show that it is not necessary for women to wear bras. Professor Jean-Denis Rouillan of Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Besancon in France also revealed that “bras actually prevent breasts from growing or achieving their natural lift.”

“Not wearing a bra actually protects your breasts from gravity.”

In the study, based on 330 volunteers aged between 18 and 35, had their breast measured over 15 years. Those who did not wear bras had seven millimeter lift in their nipples each year. It also promotes better posture, and develops the muscles that lie under the breasts, which aids in better breast support.

“These bras serve aesthetic purposes that serve only cultural norms and local beauty standards.”

While the study included women aged between 18 and 35, this may not be true for the rest, especially those over the age of 35 or 40, as they have depended on bras for decades. Taking them off would more likely to cause them more discomfort, and getting 10-year-olds to wear training bra at such a young age may stifle their breast growth.

Do you support this bra theory?
