Sick of Wearing a Bra? Research Suggests There's No Need for Them

October 17, 2015 1 min read

Bras are both a blessing and a curse. They keep our bosoms supported, protected and perhaps emotionally secure, yet they also dig into our sides, leaving us feeling utterly uncomfortable. Sometimes we throw them off in a desperate plea of liberation after a long day. "Who needs a bra anyway?!" we say.
It seems to be a constant battle between our breasts and our bra. Can we just give them up already? According to new research, we might just be able to. Science HQ recently revealed that bras actually have no benefit for women. Sport-Science researcher Jean-Denis Rouillon published the results of a 15-year study regarding the effects bras had on 330 women aged between 18 and 35. The results proved  “medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra."
While the findings may not matter to some, who wear a bra for other reasons than to simply prevent sagging, perhaps it will make you feel less obligated in the least. The belief behind this study's findings is that bras can hinder circulation to the breasts, which in turn harms the production of collagen and overall elasticity, causing a decrease in breast tone. Are you throwing off your bra as we speak? Source: Viral Thread
