Do we really need a bra?


A few years ago I was told by a self proclaimed ”health warrior” that she is never wearing bras. My first thought was, no way! But I asked why and slowly but surely it all made sense. Because lets be honest (big breasted women), don’t we girls just all relax best when the bra is off? Bras are not really natural, it can be too tight and I started wondering: do we really need a bra? So a few years ago I decided not to wear them anymore. What do I wear then? Do we really need a bra?

What happens if you wear a bra?

  • Wearing a bra can easily cut off lymph drainage due to breast compression. As such your body will have difficulties excreting toxins.
  • The type of a bra you wear can affect how much or little the lymph drainage will be blocked. The tighter it is, the less these toxins get excreted from your body.
  • Which bras are the worst? The metal underwire bra. These can cause the most health problems, because of the nature of the metal itself.  Not to mention the rashes, cuts, discomfort and skin irritation. Also, push up bras are not the healthiest ones because they are often too tight.
  • Most of us don’t want to have saggy breasts. However, you need to know that when our breasts are bouncing (walking not while running), it gives them a perfect natural massage. This will help increase lymphatic flow and get rid of  toxins.

What is the solution?

There are ways to go through life without feeling naked in a tight summer shirt. Especially if you have a bigger cup, the idea of leaving the house without a bra can be terrifying. So, if you must wear a bra, find one that is not too tight, don’t go for the push up bras or bras with a metal wiring. But the best, go for sport bras. It’s so much more comfortable. I would never be able to go back to a bra with a metal cup

Could you ditch your bra?
