October 13th is a Braless day! For real! It’s called National No Bra Day, invented by those who promote breast cancer awareness and help raise money for research. This days purpose Is to make you realize the seriousness of this disease and to bring your attention to the cause.

Nonetheless, apart from it, it has been confirmed that wearing a bra can lead to breasts cancer in fact.  What are the risks of wearing a bra? While the bra was originally designed to hold the breasts in place, it turns out there are some science-backed reasons why wearing a bra can be harmful.

Medically, physiologically, anatomically, the breast does not benefit from being deprived of gravity,” stated Jean-Denis Rouillon a sport science researcher and professor at the University of Franche-Comte.“For younger women, not wearing a bra will lead to increased collagen production and elasticity, which improves lift in a developing breast, “said Dr. Stafford Broumand.

What actually was discovered is that bras actually interrupt blood circulation and women not wearing bras will experience increased collagen resulting in better elasticity.So not wearing a bra is actually far better and will improve the condition of your breasts.

However, as mentioned earlier, women wear bras for esthetic reasons such as reducing the sag of their breasts.Bras are very important part of every woman’s closet but we hope that after knowing the risks, you will rethink your decision to wear a bra tomorrow.
