The findings from a 15-year, longitudinal study of more than 300 women in France, suggest that breasts would gain more tone, and would support themselves, if no bra was used. Why? Bras appear to limit the growth of supporting breast tissues, leaving the breast to wither and degrade more quickly. In fact, women who stopped wearing bras experienced a 7mm lift in their nipples each year that they did not wear a bra, and bra-less women developed firmer breasts, and stretch marks faded. And, in direct opposition to the myth that the bra eases back pain for women with larger breasts, not wearing a bra actually eased the pain, while wearing a bra did not.
holy shit what have we done to ourselves
This is a huge deal folks. We have literally been told that not wearing a bra is the worst thing a woman can do to herself. And I’ve always embraced that since I am a pretty big girl and I enjoy not having my knockers knocking around. But this….Well I don’t feel like I can go around outside without a bra, but I will from now on take it off at home (which i usually keep it on until bedtime) and where i’m comfortable…This really…is one of those things that changes everything.
as i read this aloud me and emma took off our bras
I almost never wear my bra at home. It’s uncomfortable and gives me shoulder/neck pains. I gotta wear it outside though because OH HEY NIPPLES. The damn thing also gave me an awful rash on my left side that lasted for over two weeks. This is apparently rather common, just never had it happen to me until now.
THE MORE YOU KNOW.
Reblogging for my gals
Everything I thought I knew about bras is a lie :U
i’m the only one in my family that wears undershirts instead of bras, and my family girls are always bothered by how I’m the only one with breasts that support themselves without a bra. now I finally know why!I knew tata prison was evil!!
ok but I am still wearing them outside because I am not a part of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee and those things like to swing around, ya dig?
The story behind lobsters
is that they weren’t thought of as cuisine
until the 19th century. Before that
they were considered peasant food,
and most often served in prisons.
The story behind diamonds
is that they were just rocks until 1938
when there was a marketing campaign
that forever linked them with love.
The story about you is that you thought
I was so much more than I was.
The story behind art
is that it’s never a masterpiece
until it’s already been sold.
Once it already belongs to someone else.
The story behind us
is that once you finally had me, you had
no idea what I was worth.

“The way the animals live, everybody envies them, because look, a cat, when it walks—did you ever see a cat making an aesthetic mistake. Did you ever see a badly formed cloud? Were the stars ever misarranged? When you watch the foam breaking on the seashore, did it ever make a bad pattern? Never. And yet we think in what we do, we make mistakes.”
