French study shows benefits of going bra-less
It’s always been viewed as taboo — jogging, grocery shopping or sitting in a class, bra-less.
But within the recently released discoveries of Jean-Denis Rouillon, a professor at the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, France, the health benefits of letting them loose might outweigh the criticisms of social normality, according to the Huffington Post.
“Medically, physiologically, anatomically, the breast does not benefit from being deprived of gravity,” Rouillon said in the article.
For 15 years, Rouillon has observed and studied the breasts of more than 300 18 to 35-year-old women.
In his report, he explains his findings of how women who went bra-less experienced a growth in muscle development to support their breasts, which led to perkier breasts and nipples and less noticeable stretch marks.
The study found that a bra’s restricting fabric can deter the breasts from growing the self-supportive tissue, which causes them to sag.
Despite his reports, Rouillon didn’t advise all women to take off the harnesses, for his research might not have been representative of the entire population.
If a bra is part of an adult woman’s attire, Rouillon said there won’t be much benefit to shaking it up and letting them down now.
