For better boobs take off that bra!

So apparently it is all just a big money spinner! That bra you spent a fortune on - yeah well, it is actually making your boobs saggy.

A French study spanning 15-years has found that not only do bras make your breasts sag even more, they do nothing to reduce back pain.

"Medically, physiologically, anatomically - breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity," said Jean-Denis Rouillon, Research Professor on the French study, told Counsel and Heal.

"On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra."

The study looked at 330 women and the changes in their breasts over time using a slide rule and caliper, and concluded that breasts naturally become more toned and supported if no bra is used. When a bra is used, the breast becomes dependent on the artificial support, making them degrade more quickly. Going braless gives women a 7mm lift in their nipples for every year they go without, and aids in fading stretch marks.

Well I am SHOCKED!  There is no way in hell you would get me to ditch the bra. Ever! *shudder*
I would never leave the house if I had to burn my bra. 

Although in saying that, if we didn't know any different and that was the "norm" then who would really care? Everyone else would be tripping over their boobs too so it wouldn't be embarrassing at all.

I would like to know what "size" breasts they used in the study. If it was a good mix or just a smaller cup.  Interesting indeed!

Do you always wear a bra? Or do you ditch it as soon as you walk in the door?

I always wear my bra, from the second I get dressed in the morning to when I have a shower at night. I couldn't imagine not wearing one when I leave the house. The only time I don't wear one is when I'm in bed at night sleeping.
