Brassiere, or bra, is an undergarment for women to support their breasts. As more than 90% of the American women have been told to wear bras without ever asking why, a common believe is that to prevent sagging, lift, push and streamlines the body.
Should you stop wearing a bra?
While wearing bras symbolise women, some take it otherwise. As the October 13th is the no-bra day, some people believe that women should not wearing bras as it does not provide any health benefits, and may actually harmful to women. Over years, rumors about wearing bras may connect to breast’s cancer, however the fact is, there’s no good scientific study to support this claim. On one hand, a study suggests that wearing bras prevents growth of tissue, and did nothing in reducing back pain, sagging nor supporting chest. Nonetheless, the study does not represent the population as a whole and providing very preliminary result. The issue remains controversial.
Despite of that, most women today are still wearing bras. And we are not anyway near from a complete emancipation, at least in the near future.
But in BoyGadgets, here we have a great smart technology bra for you.
