No bras on October 13th!! This is true! This day is called National No Bra Day and is invented in order to raise awareness about breast cancer as well as to collect money for research on breast cancer. Surely the ladies without bras will attract people’s attention but are you aware that bras can damage the breast?
Bras are invented to keep the breasts “in place” especially the large ones which is a good thing. It is quite unpleasant feeling when every movement you make emphasizes the size of your breasts which move as well.
Though, Jean-Denis Rouillion a sport science researcher and a professor at the University of Franche-Comte in the town of Besancon conveyed 15 year- long study on 330 women from 18-35 year old and he concluded that wearing bras didn’t reduce the back pain, didn’t support the chest nor prevented breasts from premature sagging .“Medically, physiologically, anatomically, breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.” Oh no!
The scientists now claim that when we wear bra we prevent the development of supporting breast tissue and if we don’t wear bra our breasts will not get saggy. During the study in women who didn’t wear bras, the nipples lifted for 7 millimeters unlike in the women who were wearing bras all the time. This is good news as we can do something about the way our breast look like. The study has also shown that the bras reduce the blood circulation which affects the skin tone on the breasts.
“For younger women, not wearing a bra will lead to increased collagen production and elasticity, which improves lift in a developing breast,” claimed Dr. Stafford Broumand.
Yet, women wear bras not only to prevent saggy breasts. Many wear them to keep them still so they wouldn’t attract too much attention. Bras are very important part of every woman’s closet. But after reading this text you may want to consider if you still want to wear them.
