#1 Study: Younger women don't need to wear bras Read more: http://www.myfoxny.com/story06-11-2013, 12:12 AM
Do women really need to wear a bra? A newly released 30-year study shows that no, we don't.
New York women are not ready to say bye-bye to their bras just yet.
French researchers spent 15 years studying the breasts of more 330 French women, and concluded that wearing a bra does not prevent sagging or ease back pain as commonly thought. In fact, in the study the supporting muscles of women who went au naturel had actually strengthened and the nipples were measurably higher.
"I'm skeptical of this study to be honest," said Dr. Kerry Peterson of Lenox Hill Hospital. "The study says that the bras don't work and that gravity really doesn't take its toll on us, but to me, intuitively gravity would pull the breast tissue down if it's not being adequately supported so I don't know if I'm a convert yet."
Marilyn Monroe legendarily wore a bra to sleep to keep hers up high. But what about a bras' short-term day job: keeping things in place?

It's probably true for women who wear A and B cups, maybe even thinner women who wear a C cup.
The rest of us need to wear bras, for our own comfort and everyone else's.

Everyone should wear appropriate foundation garments.

Somewhat true article, so long as you don't fail the "Pencil Test."
Then again, when going braless, is a good idea to stay away from cold environments!American By Choice ~ 1980

One of my college friends wears an M cup-no implants, just nature gone freaky. She has had permanent strap grooves on her shoulders since she was a teen. She wears a bra to sleep, and additionally puts a pillow between her breasts and body for extra support. She has crippling arthritis in her back. There's nothing glamorous about it.
Guys still love to look at her and try to touch them, though. Because she's also 6 feet tall, they only try once.
