Set them free

Since I'm blogging breast related stories, I thought I'd pass this news along.

The conventional wisdom that bras help shape the breasts only applies during the growth period. Wearing bra all day does not lift drooping breasts, nor does not wearing one make them sag. There are no scientific grounds for the widespread belief that wearing a bra changes the shape of breasts.

"A bra can assist in shaping the breasts until the age of 17, when women still grow, but after that physical pressure has no influence on the shape of breasts any more," a plastic surgeon who runs a clinic in Seoul's Gangnam said. "The shape of breasts depends on genetic elements, hormone levels, age, severe weight loss, and the number of children borne."

Should South Korean women listen to advice from a healthcare provider who makes part of his living trying to make female breasts more attractive? He or she could be just be lending their expertise except the article couldn't even name the physician.

Female Wizbang readers feel free to enlighten me on the benefits of a bra wearing. I make a bet no other contributor ever used that line before.

Unfortunately there is plenty of evidence for what happens when women don't wear bras. (Warning: link is NSFW and not safe for those with weak constitutions.)

GREAT SWEET GOOGLY MOOGLY..... (Below threshold)

GREAT SWEET GOOGLY MOOGLY....just by removing said bra will transform you into some earthy dirty hippie war protester..person???.

Thanx a lot for the link I SHOULD NOT HAVE CLICKED ON Michael!! Was on My way to lunch..now however I think I will skip it.

What the doc didn't mention... (Below threshold)

What the doc didn't mention is that size of the breast depends on whether it's going to end up like ones in the link. A bra won't keep that from happening!

Besides, none of the breasts were nearly as disgusting as scrotum dude.

Can only speak for myself..... (Below threshold)

Can only speak for myself... but sagging and bouncing actually HURT. Therefore... need the support of the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder to stay pain-free.

CrankyBeach,I concur... (Below threshold)

I concur. Although at 43, I can barely fill up an "A" cup even on the fullest days of the month.
