Bras are something we are forced into thinking are doing good for our bodies, why do we wear them? What do they actually do?
Going without a bra is something that will benefit you greatly. We are forced by society to think that if we go out without one is unacceptable. This is something that needs to stop, we should not be damaging our bodies for the sake of everyone else. If you are content wearing a bra, by all means, do it, however, be aware of what it is not doing for you and what it is doing to your body.
Why you should go braless:
- Bras do not prevent sagging.
- Going braless improves circulation.
- Going braless boosts collagen and elasticity.
- Going braless will make your boobs perkier.
- Wearing bras can increase your risk of developing breast cancer.
Now, sometimes going braless may not seem like an option but there are alternatives that will still let you reap some of the benefits of going braless.
You could opt for one of the following options:
- Underwire-free bras
- Sports bras
Jean-Denis Rouillon a sports science researcher and professor at the University of Franche-Comte conducted a study for over fifteen years on the effects of bras. The subjects included 330 women who were from the age of 18 to 35. He was able to conclude that women who did not wear bras had much perkier breasts along with the fact that wearing a bra from an early age did not help support the chest at all as we are often told.
“Medically, psychologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.”
This group believes based on the information the acquired that young women would gain more tone and supporting breast tissue if they did not use a bra at all. Whether you choose to continue wearing bras after learning this is up to you. However, I strongly suggest you ditch the bra when you can.
