Alright, ladies, I’m about to talk about something a little sensitive—boobs. As great as they are, they come with lots of struggles. The added weight, the back problems, and running—they definitely don’t make everything easier. Another thing that makes them a drag is bras.

 

Bras are extremely overpriced, fairly uncomfortable, and I won’t even divulge into some of the awful conditions of bra factories. Yet 75-95% of Eastern Women still regularly wear bras. Which would make sense if we really needed them, but the reality is that we really don’t!

Professor Jean-Denis Rouillan, of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Besancon in France has done a study that revealed that not wearing bra might actually give you better, long time support for your boobs. The study was conducted on 330 women age 18-35 for 15 years. The results were that the women who had not worn a bra had firmer boobs, less stretch marks, and even more lifted nipples.

 

The study showed that women who didn’t wear bras developed more muscle underneath their breasts. This helps protect your boobs from gravity and forces you to have better posture. The study also found that women older than 35 who have relied on a bra their entire lives might not have the ability to develop these muscles anymore, so ditching your bra sooner than later might be the right move.

 

If these results are surprising it might be because we’ve been programmed since pre-adolescence that we need bras for posture and support, but we might want to throw these ideas out with our bras. If you are particularly against this motion I must ask you, why? If it’s simply because you don’t want to be seen without a bra,

“I challenge you to forget the notion that other people’s perspective of you is more important than your own comfort.””
