Here’s Why Women Should Ditch Bras… According To Science.
For hundreds of years women have been told to wear bras. Different variations of what came to be the bra today have been used as far back as ancient Greece. The goal of wearing such a garment is to provide support to a woman’s breast.
Despite the fact that every woman’s bosom comes in different size and shape, brassieres are pretty standard without much variation. And women don't always have the exact size cups. And yet, female consumers spend a lot of money buying the bra that promises to keep the bust in perfect shape, avoiding the sagging prospect.
Researchers from the University of Franche-Comte spent 15 years studying the benefit of wearing a bra. Trying to keep the muscles of the mammary glands full and perky has nothing to do with the bras you buy. The results of the study may surprise you and save you money in the long run.
330 women from the ages of 18 to 35 were studied over 15 years in the French town Besançon.
The changes of the mammary glands were recorded every year.

It has always been said that the benefits of wearing a bra are to prevent sagging, avoid back pains, and support the chest.
A bra in essence is holding the mammary glands up. The belief is that by keeping the muscles in place, the fate of gravity will be avoided in the future.

It's all about training the muscles on the chest the moment breasts begin to grow.
"If a woman begins wearing a bra from the moment breasts appear, the suspension muscles don't work correctly, and tissues slacken," says the professor and lead researcher Jean-Denis Rouillon.

Women in the study were not forced to stop wearing bras. It was a choice.
Those that went braless had a 7-millimeter or 0.3-inch increase in their nipples in comparison to those that wore bras.

The study suggests that wearing a brassiere impacts circulation in the chest area.
Wearing clothes that trap the oils in the body also increase the likelihood of odor, acne, breakouts, and even fungal infections.
