WHY SCIENTISTS ARE TELLING WOMEN TO STOP WEARING BRAS
Yet, a sport science researcher, Jean-Denis Rouillion, who is a professor at the University of Franche-Comte in the town of Besancon conducted a 15- year study on the effects of bras. His study included 330 women between the ages of 18-35 years. His findings were devastating, to be true: he found that wearing a bra from early age did nothing to support the chest, reduce back pain or prevent premature sagging.
"Medically, physiologically, anatomically, breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra." - he adds. Namely, those women who stopped wearing bras during this study had a 7-millimeter lift in their nipples when compared to a regular bra user.
Moreover, scientists now state that we lack a development of supporting breast tissue when we wear a bra and that without one, we would gain more tone to support our breasts. "For younger women, not wearing a bra will lead to increased collagen production and elasticity, which improves lift in a developing breast," said Dr. Stafford Broumand.
Researchers also claim that bras could also hamper circulation and reduce the overall tone of our breasts.
