According to studies, the National No Bra Day on October 13th shouldn’t be the only day for that matter. In fact, scientists are urging women to stop wearing bras immediately.Scientists claim that wearing bras from a young age does not help support the chest, prevent breast sagging, nor reduce back pain. In fact, not wearing a bra promotes more tone and supporting breast tissue.
After a long 15-year study on the effect of bras conducted on 330 women aged 18 to 35, a sports science researcher Jean-Denis Rouillon told in an interview, “Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.”
His study found that women who didn’t wear bras have perkier breasts. Bras, he claims, could hamper blood circulation and reduce breast tone over time.There are also other professionals who agree with Rouillon. For example, Dr. Stafford Broumand told Refinery29, “For younger women, not wearing a bra will lead to increased collagen production and elasticity, which improves lift in a developing breast.”
