Do Bras Help Or Hurt Your Breasts? The Answer Might Surprise You

For years, women have worn bras to keep their breasts from sagging. Some women who are well endowed have even been told to sleep in their bras.

As it turns out, this was bad advice.

The best thing to keep your boobs from getting droopy and starting to sag might be to go braless. At least, go braless as much as possible.

A 15-year French study conducted by Jean-Denis Rouillon, a sports science expert from the University of Besançon, found that bras lead to sagging breasts and loss of supple shape. The support of the bra weakens the chest muscles that are meant to naturally hold up the girls.

The more you wear a bra, the weaker your chest muscles become. The weaker the muscles become, the more you need a bra. It's a vicious cycle.

Shedding the bra is the best way to allow those muscles to strengthen and naturally do their job.

This will help your breasts eventually become rounder, perkier, fuller and they'll hold up a lot better in the long run.

Shedding the bra is also good for your circulation. If you're used to wearing it at night, you will probably sleep much more comfortably without one.

It might be time to hang loose. After all, it's for your health.
