Ladies It’s Finally Time To Take off That Bra… For Good!

By Alanna Ketler –

During the day many women are fantasizing about what they are
going to do as soon as they get home. They are going to reach
their hands up and under their shirts, and grab onto their… bra
clasps! And rip their bras off! Letting their breasts be free!
Unrestricted and able move around, jiggle and wiggle freely.
This is such an amazing feeling of freedom, but it kind of
makes me wonder, if bras are so uncomfortable, why do so many
women wear them so often? Is this feeling of discomfort that
results from wearing these restricting bras a sign from our
bodies that we have been ignoring?

According to the American Cancer Society, there is absolutely
no evidence that leads to the correlation between wearing a bra
and contracting breast cancer. The apparent reasoning behind
this is that there have been no conclusive studies done to show
that there is a link, they themselves have not conducted
studies to disprove this. However there have been several
studies done that do show a correlation between wearing bras
and the development of breast cancer. In the 1930’s there was
“no link” that proved that cigarettes caused lung cancer
either, in fact, doctors were still promoting cigarette smoking
in the 1950’s. It wasn’t until 1964 when the American Cancer
Society finally mentioned that there was a direct link between
cigarette smoking and lung cancer. If they would have found out
the link to cigarettes and cancer sooner, just think of all the
money that would not have been made for the sale of cigarettes
-and the treatment of cancer. Perhaps someday in the future,
this will be the story of the bra, and people will say “I can’t
believe they didn’t realize that there was a link between
wearing bras and breast cancer!’

Another noteworthy piece of information is that much like the
cancer industry, there is a huge bra industry as well. When you
think about how many bras each woman is buying every year, this
is a multi-billion dollar industry in the US alone.

Right now, we do not know for sure that wearing bras causes
cancer, but at least we can look at some of the evidence, and
from there make an informed decision for ourselves.

Evidence To Support The Claim

Wearing a bra can restrict the extremely thin lymphatic
vessels, by compressing the vessels, which then can lead to a
build up of toxic fluid, which would otherwise be drained
through this system. When these vessels are closed there is
less oxygen and nutrients delivered to the cells while toxic
waste materials are not being flushed away. Is it possible that
this build up of toxins is linked to fibrocystic cysts?
Fibrocystic cysts are fluid filled sacks that can appear as
hard lumps in the breasts, medical research connects these
cysts with increased risk of breast cancer.

In a study that was conducted by Syd and Soma Singer in May of
1991, 4000 women in 5 major U.S. cities were interviewed. All
of the women who were studied were of Caucasian descent and
mostly of “medium income,” their age ranged from 30 to 79,
almost half had been diagnosed with breast cancer. The majority
of the women who were interviewed said that they were unhappy
with the shape and size of their breasts and wore a bra for
appearance only. 3 out of 4 of these women who wore their bras
to sleep contracted breast cancer, and 1 in 7 women who wore
their bras for more than 12 hours a day did too. This study
concluded that just 1 in 168 women who did not wear a bra
contracted breast cancer, which is the same amount as men (who
do not wear a bra. :P)

While keeping this in mind, what can you do to potentially
minimize your risk of developing breast cancer?

Minimize Your Risk

For me personally, on a day-to-day basis I do not wear a bra. I
haven’t for about 4 years now. However, I will wear one for
certain occasions and depending on what I am wearing, but this
is very minimal. Up until about a year ago I had no idea of
this potential link to breast cancer, but I stopped wearing one
for the mere fact that it was extremely uncomfortable. I know a
lot of women with big breasts are thinking that this just isn’t
possible for them, but did you know that when you wear a bra
all the time you are actually weakening the ligaments of the
breasts? If you keep your breasts free of support for a period
of time, these ligaments will grow stronger and then your
breasts will support themselves a bit better. A French study
done by Professor Jean-Denis Roullion used calipers to measure
changes in the breasts of 330 women over a 15-year period. He
found that bras didn’t do anything that they were purported to
do, and they didn’t alleviate back-pain, but rather intensified
it! Also, they didn’t do anything to prevent breast tissue from
sagging. In his opinion the bra is a “false need.” The findings
of the study suggest that breasts would gain more tone and
support themselves if no bra were used because as researchers
explain, bras limit the growth of supporting breast tissue
leaving the breast to wither and degrade quicker. Further, the
study found that women who took off their bras experience an
average of 7mm lift in their nipples from each year they didn’t
wear a bra- amazing! An important thing to note is that
Roullion suggests that if you are over the age of 45 not
wearing a bra would do very little, if anything to lift the

I do think that a huge reason why women wear bras is because of
what society tells us that our breasts should look like. If
they are small, we should wear really tight push up bras, if
they are too big, we should wear really tight bras to make them
appear smaller and less saggy. There are plenty of women whose
breasts are so small that they wear a bra for literally no
reason, but only to make it appear as if they had larger
breasts, if only they knew the risk they were taking, all for
aesthetic purposes only. In societies eye, all breasts should
be completely round and perky, but lets face it, for those
women who still have natural breasts, this isn’t very likely.
As of late, more and more people are adopting more natural
habits and practices and before we know it, natural shapely
breasts will be back in style!

If you must wear a bra, consider ones with no underwire and
aren’t too tight. Try to wear the bra for as short of a time as
possible, and give your breasts a good rub and massage after
they’ve been released! By no means should you ever be sleeping
in your bra. If you are worried about your nipples showing,
maybe consider wearing a camisole under your shirt, but even if
they do show, it’s not the end of the world.

Much Love
