Are there any health concerns amongst women that are associated with not wearing a bra?
To bra or not to bra, that is the question.
It seems there are quite a few. The links at the bottom claim that wearing a bra will increase the chances of breast cancer by a large margin. The blood flow increase by not wearing a bra will also reduce the chances of fibrocystic breast disease. The evidence is preliminary but either way it doesn’t mean that wearing a bra isn’t doing some damage anyway.
A bra is or at least can be a very tight fitting item of clothing. Often the skim around and under the breast is red and depressed, like when you fall asleep with your face on a fridge magnet in the shape of the letter L, hopefully you’ll not do this with your forehead. Putting your skin though that kind of pressure for many hours a day can’t be good. There is a lot of blood flood in that area as well and I know it’s never good to impede blood flow.
Wearing a bra also does not help the muscle stay strong, the stronger this muscle is the less sag a breast will have. Lets face it bra burning wasn’t just an act of feminism; it was an act of health!
