For thousands of years women have been relying on the good ole bra to shape ourselves. In the 3rd century Roman women used to use bandages to secure their “girls” during athletics. And now they’re a staple in our wardrobe.
But they don’t have to be a necessity! Set those babies free! Go ahead toss those bras! According to a new study, bras aren’t helping anyways. At least that’s according to my peeps, the French.
After 15 years of thoroughly studying 130 women’s breasts, a French sports medicine scientist says: Bras are Bogus!
They don’t help you defy gravity, nor ease back pain. That’s what professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, from the University of Besançon in eastern France, a sports science expert claims.
Professor Rouillon says, “Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra,” The Local reports.
One participant in the study told The Local she can “breathe more easily. I carry myself better and I have less back pain.”
But I don’t think going braless is for everyone. You almost wonder what type of women were in his study. Just look around the world, do you really think the Russian women want to let those DD loose? Me personally, j’adore this new development. I’m all about being natural and free!
And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
