Ladies, it’s time to let go the expensive BRAs we keep as they seem to have no real benefits— except probably being s3xy lingerie…
Wetin we no go hear?
According to scientists, brassieres increase sagging of our “oranges” and they don’t alleviate back pain, contrary to what we have known for years.
Wearing a bra does nothing to decrease back pain, and the support offered by a brassiere actually encourages the breasts to sag. So, if you are worried about sagging, it is time to dump the bra.
A 15-year study led by Jean-Denis Rouillon, from the University of Besançon in eastern France, found that “bras are a false necessity”.
“Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra,” Rouillon, a Sports Science expert, told France Info radio.
To come to this conclusion, Rouillon spent a decade and a half measuring the changes in breasts of hundreds of women- between the ages of 18 and 35 using a slide rule and caliper at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire in Besançon.
Of the braless women, the researchers concluded that “on average their chests lifted on average seven millimeters in one year in relation to the shoulders”.
A 28-year-old woman who took part in the study and who has not worn a bra for two years now, says there is no way she will be going back to wearing a bra.
She told France Info Radio: “There are multiple benefits: I breathe more easily, I carry myself better, and I have less back pain.”
“I am not buying any more bras again and in fact without them, my nips are able to stand up straight— bringing me all the attention I deserve.”
