Wearing bra makes breasts sag

Melbourne: Wearing bras make your breasts sag even more and they do nothing to reduce back pain, a French study spanning 15-years has found.

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

On the contrary, Rouillon added, women get saggier with a bra, News.com.au reported.

The study that looked at the changes in breasts of 330 women using a slide rule and calliper 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.

Moreover, the study found that going braless gives women a 7mm lift in their nipples for every year they go without, and aids in fading stretch marks.

But Rouillon noted though they validated the hypothesis that the bra is a false need, it would be dangerous to advise all women to stop wearing their soutien-gorge as the women involved were not a representative sample of the population.
