Here is what happens to your body when the breast is free from the bra
In 1889, at the Paris world fair, Herminie Cadolle French designer from a lingerie company, he presented a two-piece corset. This marked the origin of the first bra, called at the time corset-throat . In 1904, the terms ruff and bra appeared in Larousse ; three years after the famous magazine Vogue made the word bra popular.
This is how the bra has become an essential part of the feminine wardrobe. Initially worn as an intimate garment deemed necessary for maintaining the correct chest posture, it has continued to evolve over time and in fashion to become a true seductive accessory . It is now possible to get a bra for any taste, budget and size.
However, a recent study by Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon of CHU Besançon in France highlighted the controversial effects of this accessory . The professor assumed that sports women do not wear a bra and therefore decided to examine the issue.
He then decided in 1997 to start a thorough research by bringing together a group of women from 18 to 35 who don’t wear a bra. As time went by, it turned out that the nipples of these women were rising and that their breasts looked firmer. Without a bra, these women felt more at ease and adopted a better posture.
Bra and lymphatic circulation
Two anthropologists have recently conducted a study to demonstrate the connection between bra and breast cancer . Having a compression effect on the lymph nodes, the bra prevents the natural elimination of toxins through lymphatic drainage. The toxins accumulate in the breast causing the appearance of cancerous masses.
When the lymphatic capillaries (small vessels found in the tissues of the human body) are compressed by bras, this prevents the circulation of the lymph in the vessels and causes its stagnation . The toxins not eliminated therefore become harmful.
Furthermore, thermographic studies have shown that wrapping the breast with the bra tissue increases their temperature. A “sick” breast is warmer to the touch than a non-cancerous breast.
Know that when the breast is “free” during your movements a natural massage is practiced, especially during walking. The lymph circulates freely and favors the neutralization of waste, preventing the appearance of cysts and tumors.
Bra: better to wear it or not?
Bra and discomfort
Of course, the bra is not really the most comfortable accessory of your wardrobe, yet many women have become so used to its use that they feel uncomfortable when they don’t wear it. Wearing or not a bra is a highly subjective choice, but keep in mind that it is essential to dedicate a little free time to the breast to let it breathe.
As soon as you have the opportunity, take it off! When you are at home, have the reflection to take it off and not sleep with it. Not only will you feel discomfort, but the circulation of blood and lymph (as mentioned above) will be blocked. Even lingerie manufacturers confirm this and advise not to wear a bra for more than seven hours and above all not to sleep in.
Also make sure that the bras you wear are adapted to your body, they should not tighten or leave any signs of compression when ti spogli.
Bra and support
Contrary to popular belief, wearing a long-term bra will not prevent the breast from losing its tone. If you think wearing a bra will prevent the breast from falling out, that’s not it! On the contrary, the muscles of your breast must be stressed and work to maintain their elasticity, being precisely replaced by the bra, they become so lazy and soften over time.
Especially with age, your skin is destined to lose its elasticity for which stretch marks, cellulite and your breasts tend to give way. Wearing a bra may slow this down but it cannot be made inevitable.
