To Bra or Not to Bra
A woman’s breasts are made of fats and glands. Even though there are already ligaments that provide the necessary support, in due time, breasts eventually sag in almost every woman. To delay this eventuality, many women choose to wear a bra. Breasts are held up biologically in two ways: by the internal suspensory ligaments and the skin outside that contains the breasts. Wearing a bra lifts the breasts and helps prevent the sagging as much as possible.
If you feel uneasy and uncomfortable in your bras, most likely the problem lies with the bra itself. Perhaps you are wearing an ill-fitting bra. Or maybe the quality of your bra is not good enough to provide the support and comfort you need.
When you wear a bra with a good fit, you should feel lighter and more secure. The right bra should feel almost like a second skin. While many women think that bra straps are the most important element of a bra in providing much-needed support, it’s actually the back fabric that matters more.
Benefits of Wearing a Bra: Finding a Good Fit
According to Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, a Specialist in Sports Medicine at the University Hospital of Besancon, “In reality, the bra preserves the subtle connections that lie between the basal plane of the mammary gland as well as the pectoral muscles known as Cooper’s ligaments.”
