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
A year ago this post led to my complete phasing out of bras and i couldnt be happier or more comfortable
I could’ve told you guys this
I stopped wearing bras 99% of the time like a year ago and my boobs have never been better
Bras are full of lies
YES ALL GIRLS SHOULD STOP WEARING BRAS IMMEDIATELY. DEFINITELY. IT’S FOR YOUR HEALTH.
YOU CANT JUST NOT WEAR A BRA THOUGH BECAUSE YOU GET CALLED A SLUT
WELL SCREW ANY ONE THAT WOULD CALL YOU A SLUT FOR WEARING A COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY AND IN REALITY HARMFUL ARTICLE OF CLOTHING. JUST SCREW THEM SIDEWAYS WITH A CHAINSAW.
A few days ago in a parking lot in Lisbon wheelchair users and volunteers occupied all the available Non-Handicap spaces to make a point to able-bodied motorists what it is like to have “their” parking places unavailable to them.
On every wheelchair various notes were left like: "be right back", "it only takes a moment", "I’m get something here", etc.
Reblogged this yesterday from a different source, but I think this photograph is more powerful.
I love this so much I’ll reblog it a million times!
