Women who wear bras have saggier breasts than women who don’t, according to a new study.

Scientists in France found that bras give no benefit at all in “denying breasts gravity” and claim the underwear is just a “false necessity."

The research suggests wearing a bra could actually be sending our busts southwards and does little to ease back pain.

Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, from the University of Besancon, led the 15-year study into women’s breasts.

“Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity," he said. “On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra”.

Rouillon spent years using a slide rule and caliper to measure changes in the orientation of the breasts of 130 women.

How does this explain when you see 3rd world countries on TV (places they don't wear bra's, dressed in rags and leaves) and they are all extremely saggy.

personally, i prefer the bra's.

[edit] actually, probably something to do with lack of essential nutrients etc...? but still

The majority of women I work with are in the behemoth category. In fact the majority of women you see anywhere anymore are fatter then **** (Seeing a slender nice looking female anymore is like a rare sighting of the mythical unicorn) I hope and pray they don't ever take those giant tarps off.

Child birth man...... child birth expand them, then shrink causing a loss of elasticity bet you anything if you look at tribal girls, their breasts are firm up to the point they have kids then they go downhill from there

I always knew bras were evil contraptions. Free the twins, ladies. Allow them to bounce and jiggle to their hearts content!
