No Bra Day: See Seven Benefits Of Going Braless
As women, we are have been taught all our lives that wearing a bra is the ‘proper’ thing to do. Wearing a bra under your clothing keeps you looking put-together, and just all-around more appropriate.
This pro-bra message has been preached to women worldwide for centuries. But you may be surprised to hear that there are some unexpected benefits to ditching your brassiere once in a while or for good! Here are nine ways your health, your life, and your br*asts can improve by saying adieu to your trusty old bra.
1. Improve your br*ast shape
Contrary to what we might believe, not wearing a bra doesn’t cause your br*asts to sag. In fact, a long-running French study has proven that bras most likely have the opposite effect, causing breasts to lose their shape over time. According to the study, the “support” of bras weakens the muscles in the chest, making the br*asts droop.
To keep your br*asts rounder and perkier, it’s actually best to let them do their own thing! Your bra is just keeping you back from having more beautiful br*asts, truth be told.
2. You sleep better without a bra
We’ve known for some time that sleeping with your bra on isn’t something scientists approve of. Rumours of this habit causing br*ast cancer have spread from this notion, but this severe consequence is highly unlikely and has never been proven true. However, it has been proven that wearing a bra to bed is more likely to cause discomfort and disturb your sleep cycle.
3. Boost your circulation
The study mentioned above briefly covers the effects of clothing (especially tighter clothing) on blood circulation. Frequently wearing tight clothing, especially tight bras, is not so good for your circulation.
All that tightness and squeezing around your chest can slow your circulation by compressing your major blood vessels. This has actually been proven to create cardiovascular issues down the road, which your favourite push-up is just not worth.

4. Improve your br*ast health
The same French study that proved going bra-less improves perkiness has also proven that, on the whole, bras are not fatally bad for your health. Basically, they’re not going to cause br*ast cancer all on their own; there are many genetic and environmental factors at play when it comes to that.
However, not wearing a bra WILL improve your br*ast health in other ways! Besides improving blood flow, sweat and dirt are no longer trapped against the skin by your tight bra. This makes infections, rashes, and acne less likely on your br*asts.
This is especially true is you wear bras that don’t fit quite right. Bras that don’t have the right fit, or have painful underwire, are going to cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and all sorts of discomfort. You could skip the step of finding an appropriately fitting bra and just not wear one at all; just saying.
5. Save you money
Let’s face it, bras are not cheap. Especially nice, comfortable, stylish ones. No matter the amount of money you spend on a bra, consider that money saved is money earned. The money you would have spent on a new bra can be pocketed for another time or spent on something more important to you.
6. Encourage healthy br*ast tissue
As a part of the 15-year study previously mentioned, scientists have found that wearing a bra may be hindering your ability to grow healthy br*ast tissue. Br*ast tissue help strengthens br*ast muscles and, this leads to naturally larger, stronger, rounder, and perkier br*asts.
For many ladies, this could be the biggest reason to dump your bra: comfort. Seriously, is there any greater feeling of relief than taking off your bra after a long day? It is sweet, sweet freedom. Especially if we wear lacy, itchy, or tight bras, the daily discomfort can be enough to distract you all day long. A quick fix? Taking a bracation, if you will.
