Go Bra-less, and Feel the Joy

Need good reasons to go bra-less?

It seems that we may have been suffering for little benefit in the gazaba department. Here’s why…

1. Bras do nothing for your breasts, apparently. If you’re like me, you might be under the impression that wearing a bra may keep your bouncers from sagging over time. In fact, it seems the opposite is true! In a study at France’s Universite de Franche-ComtĂ©, professor Jean-Denis Rouillon found that muscle tissue was stronger in women who did not wear a bra. The same study, which tracked women over a 15-year-period, found that bras don’t actually do anything to improve the overall health or appearance of your breasts.

2. Going bra-less improves circulation. All ladies know that when you remove your bra — and thereby remove the constricting band constricting your chest — your circulation will improve, and it’s a great relief. Better circulation equates to healthier and firmer skin, and who couldn’t use a little bit more of that?

3. Your breasts will be “perkier.” Rouillon’s study found that the nipples of women who went bra-less were an average of 7 millimetres higher than those of the women who did wear bras.

4. It just feels better. Why not enjoy that end-of-the day comfort all day long by skipping the bra, even if just for one day? If you’re worried about how it will look, try wearing a top with a built-in shelf bra to get the benefits of support without the constriction of a bra!

5. Going bra-less gives you a chance to check things out. Ditching the bra for one day will give you a better opportunity to get up close and personal with your breasts in a way that you would not if they were ensconced in fabric. Now is a good time to do that self-exam you keep forgetting about and to make that mammogram appointment you’ve been meaning to schedule all year.
