I can not speak for all women. I can just tell you that the ones I have known absolutely hate wearing a bra but see it as a necessary evil. My wife gets out of hers first thing when she gets home from work. This new study may set women free from this constraint.


This new study comes from the University of Besancon in France. Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon spent 15 years regularly measuring 130 women's breast to come up with these facts(you know he hated all that tedious research.) For this study some of the women wore bras and some did not.

Here is a quote from the professor "Medically, physiologically, anatomically, breast gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra." He found the women who did not wear bras had less back pain, perkier breast, better posture and less trouble breathing.

I'm sure this story will generate lots of comments on facebook. I'm not sure it will result in any woman ditching her bra.
