… is that you don’t actually need one! Surprising, I know, but these are the latest research conclusions issued by a French doctor, Jean-Denis Rouillon who, for 15 long years, studied 330 women’s breast (some job, huh?).
Can you believe his exact words were: ‘bras are a false necessity’? it actually makes a lot of sense to me: the only trouble is outside in, not the other way around. Meaning – I’m fully convinced a lot of women would embrace a bra-less existence if it weren’t for ‘the others’ constantly picking in and picking at them. Simple. We still live in a predators society and bra-less days are far, far away!
If you do need more information from the good doctor, here’s what he reportedly concluded in his study: that women who are regular bra-wearers are more likely to have sagging breasts than women who are regular bra-non-wearers:
Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity […] On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.
On a side (important) note, all the subjects of the French doctor’s study were aged from 18 to 35 – you didn’t actually think he would’ve gone beyond the 35 threshold, would you? Now that! would’ve been revolutionary! But it is somewhat logical, even so: it’s the forming years of the breasts, the years when the ‘training bra’ and the ‘support bra’ get into a young woman’s life, swearing it is the must, the right thing to do!
But what if it isn’t? What then? (freedom, I’d say!)
Notice I didn’t question the aesthetic value of a bra. Or the uplifting, cup-enhancing bra (diplomatic for ‘con bra’) – I just said I was 100% agree with the bra not being a medical necessity as the consumer industry wants us to believe… (images found on Pinterest, please step forward if you have any information about the rightful owner, so I can properly credit them!
