Time to Burn Your Bra

This story might incite the biggest bra burning party since the inception of the women’s rights movement.

Ladies, when it comes to the benefits of wearing a bra, you’ve been lied to!

A 15-year study in France has found that bras are bad for you.

Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon of the University of Beseancon in France just finished up a 15 year study on bras. The findings concluded that you don’t need a bra, in fact, wearing one in bad for you.

According to Rouillon, “Medically, physiologically, anatomically, breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.”

During the 15-year study, Rouillon measured 130 women’s breasts. (It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it!) Some of the women wore bras, some did not.

He found the women without bras had less back pain, perkier breasts, better posture and less trouble breathing.

There you have it, the truth is out ladies. It’s time to revert back to the bra burning days of the 1960’s. As the women searching for equal rights during that time period would say, “let ’em hang!”
