Women need to stop wearing bras.... NOW!

Recommended Posts

Source: HuffingtonPost

Women who go braless may actually have the right idea, new research suggests.

According to the results of a 15-year study in France published Wednesday, bras provide no benefits to women and may actually be harmful to breasts over time.

"Medically, physiologically, anatomically, the breast does not benefit from being deprived of gravity," Jean-Denis Rouillon, a professor at the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, told France Info.

Conducting the study at the university's hospital, Rouillon measured and examined the breasts of more than 300 women, aged 18 and 35, taking note of how the additional support provided by bras affects the body over time. (It should be noted the study does not mention breast size.)

Overall, he found that women who did not use bras benefited in the long term, developing more muscle tissue to provide natural support. As France's The Local notes, Rouillon also noticed that nipples gained a higher lift, in relation to the shoulders, on women who went braless. When bras are worn, the restrictive material prevents such tissue from growing, which may actually accelerate sagging, the study concluded.

Capucine Vercellotti, a 28-year-old woman who participated in the research, found that she breathes easier without the constraints of a bra.

"At first, I was a little reluctant to the idea of running without a bra, but I got started and after five minutes, I had no trouble at all," Vercellotti said, according to the Agence France-Presse.

But don't throw away your bras just yet, ladies.

Despite the findings, Rouillon said it would be dangerous to advise all women to take off their bras based on the study's sample, which may not be representative of the population.

Speaking to France Info, Rouillon cautioned women who have worn bras for a long time -- several decades -- from following the recommendation since they would not benefit from taking off their bras now.

 

So tell your girlfriends, your wives, and every woman you know that's not a grandma... to take them BRAS OFF!

Speaking of which, I'm still waiting for the 15-year panties study, where it also tells women to take it off (to increase booty size maybe? :lol:). Okay, this post sounds just perverted now, but overall this study is pretty awesome. :woahman:

I worry though, if women really do stop wearing bras... will their boobs start resting to the opposite sides and not together? Like the educational videos from the tribes in Africa and/or Australia? Hmmm. :lookaround:

Must be I'm 38d and they hurt when I jog. I wear about 3 sports bras to get around.

In my army uniform I look like a boy so they're snug all day.

Wow! What are your thoughts on women who get breast implants for overly large breasts on their bodies (as seen in a lot of porn)?

 

Personally, I never understood the fascination for large breasts on a woman. If it looks proportional to the body, IMO that's all that matters.

Well if you need implants and can afford them then go for it.

 

I personally like real better than fake breasts.
