In case you didn’t know, people have chosen a date when women don’t wear bra. Obviously, this day is called National No Bra Day and it is marked on October 13th every year. The idea was promoted by the people who are trying to warn others about the dangers of breast cancer and those who want to increase the awareness of women related to the negative effects of wearing bra all the time.
The basic idea behind the invention of bras was to make women look more compact and to keep their breasts in place. Of course, they are especially useful for women who have relatively large breasts. Jean-Denis Rouillion, a professor and researcher at Franche-Comt University, conducted a scientific study focused on the impact of bras on women’s health.
The study lasted for about 15 years. During this period of time he was observing the changes in 330 women who were between 18 and 35 years old. They all wore bras from their teenage days. The final results of this study were shocking. Bras were actually not supportive for the chest and they didn’t provide protection from back pain or premature sagging of breasts.
According to Rouillion, the fact that women wear bras all the time didn’t help them defy the aging process or the effects of gravity in any aspect, be it anatomically or medically. What is even more surprising is that their breasts were actually saggier.
During the course of this study, some women decided to stop wearing bra and they have noticed lift in the position of their nipples for a few millimeters unlike passionate bra wearers.
According to doctor Stafford Broumand, there is evidence that bras can produce obstacles when it comes to proper blood flow and if women avoid wearing bra all the time especially when they are young they will increase collagen levels and get greater elasticity which ultimately means more elevated breasts.
One of the main reasons why women are fond of bras in the first place is the fact that they don’t want men to be focused on their natural and “untamed” breasts. However, it might be a good idea to get off your bra whenever you want because in this way you will preserve the natural look of this important body part and prevent the occurrence of breast cancer.
