October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and aNational No Bra Day lands on October 13th. Given that one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in life, National No Bra Day encourages women to carry out regular self-examinations and screenings to identify the symptoms and raise awareness about breast cancer.
Most women are taught that wearing a bra is a societal norm that should not be broken. Not wearing a bra has some amazing benefits: .
Improve Breast Health:
The tightness around the chest area can reduce circulation, due to the compression of essential blood vessels. A French study revealed that women who did not wear bras had improved breast circulation and perkiness. Bras may not be the worst thing to ever come into existence, but not wearing a bra can help reduce the risk of rashes, acne, or infections that can stem from sweat or dirt being trapped between the skin and bra. .
Improve Breast Shape:
The aforementioned French study proved that not wearing a bra can actually help to maintain natural breast shape. Consistently wearing a bra weakens chest muscles, which causes the breasts to droop and lose their natural shape. You can keep breasts rounder and perkier by letting them be. .
Encourage Healthy Breast Tissue:
Wearing a bra may hinder a woman’s ability to continually produce healthy breast tissue. The regeneration of healthy breast tissue is integral for reducing the risk of developing breast cancer or other breast diseases. Healthy breast tissue helps the breasts retain breast muscle strength, and it can lead to stronger, rounder, and perkier breasts.
Leave the bras behind, ladies, and embrace the freedom and benefits of not wearing a bra. It’s important to continue raising awareness about breast cancer and continue educating the masses on how to recognize the symptoms.
