After a daunting 15-year in-depth study, science has deduced that wearing a bra is not only pointless but also bad for boobs. French professor and sports science expert Jean-Denis Rouillon examined the breasts of 130 women before coming to the preliminary conclusion that “bras are a false necessity.” The professor spoke of his study during a radio interview on Wednesday with France Info. “Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra,” said the professor.
One 28-year-old subject, who hasn’t worn a bra in two years since participating in the study, agrees with Professor Rouillon. “There are multiple benefits: I breathe more easily, I carry myself better, and I have less back pain,” she told the station.
No word on whether or not more women plan to follow suit.
