During the latest studies, scientists came to conclusion that wearing a bra from a young age doesn’t actually provide support to the chest and neither does prevent sagging or reduces back pain. In fact, wearing a bra doesn’t have any impact to tone of the breast tissue.

As the sports science researcher Jean-Denis Rouillon explains, in period of 15 years he conducted a study on the effects of bras. 330 women at the age between 8 – 35 participated in this study and the results showed that breasts have no medical, physiological or anatomical benefit from being denied to the gravity. On the contrary, as Rouillon exemplifies, the breasts become even saggier when the woman wears a bra.

In addition to this, the study showed that the women who didn’t wear a bra had much perkier breasts compared to those how were wearing a bra. As Rouillon explains, bras actually impede the proper blood circulation and significantly decrease the tone of the breast, over time. Well, Rouillon is not the only expert that is against wearing bras. Namely, Dr. S. Broumand stated that younger women who don’t wear bras, have substantially increased production of collagen and improved elasticity, which results in lifted and more toned breasts.

At this point it is important to mention that there are always two sides of a story, so, some people don’t agree with the above-mentioned claims. D. Orr from the Guardian explained that women who don’t wear bra for medical, physiological or anatomical reasons, but for psychological, aesthetic and practical reasons. In other words, bras prevent the wobbling of breasts and otherwise, women’s breasts would be in their hands whenever they try to catch a lift.

In his research, Rouillon came to conclusion that the nipples of women who took part in the research rose by an average of 7 mm when they stopped wearing bras. When it comes to this topic, Orr explains that what Rouillon actually failed to understand that one of the best things about bras is not thinking about where the nipples might be.

Well, what is your opinion regarding to this issue? Do you prefer wearing a bra or you avoid it?
