Benefits of Sports Bra

According to the arguments of the textile industry, women who play sports should wear special Bras to protect their breasts.

A study somewhat tempers this assertion.

Sport, But Not of BRA: What Impact on Breasts?

In 2003, a young athlete, PhD in medicine, Laetitia Pierrot is interested in the question of if there was a real interest to the breasts of a woman whether to wear a bra during sports practice (1). To this end, she realized a study of 33 regular active volunteers who she asked to unhook the top for a year. Subjects were between 18 and 25 years old, were in good health, did not smoke, and practiced a sport of at least four hours per week. It is differentiated between vertical mobility, for example the gymnastics sport or running, as opposed to lying down like swimming disciplines. It should be noted that these women stop completely wearing the BRA, not only for sport, but also in daily life. The Protocol provided for a biometric check and questioning of subjects to 4 times during the study.

Healthy Breasts

During the first evaluation that occurred at 6 weeks of the start of the pregnancy study, a majority of women reported some discomfort to go bare breasts ; Indeed, it is not easy to get rid of a habit so ingrained in daily life. This complaint faded at the end of six months, and disappeared at the end of the study, with 88% of women who reported feeling more comfortable and more gestural freedom. As for purely physical parameters measured during different balance sheets, there was an improvement in the quality of the tissues of the breasts and a better muscle development for all rotators of the shoulder and the pectoralis muscles. Plus a significant reduction of stretch marks in the first six weeks. This was explained by the lack of compression of the BRA on the skin and vascular pedicles and better venous and lymphatic drainage. Other measures confirmed the advantage of not wearing a bra. After a year, there was for example a net loss of height, nipple-acromion. The breast was slightly enhanced. Other measures did abound in the same direction: height increase nipple-base of the breast and nipple-horizontal angle. However, there was no significant difference concerning the type of sport practice.

These biometric measures, it is ultimately that, unlike the misconception, the breasts do not fall without support. After an adjustment period, women who participated in this study did not have to complain of discomfort during sports practice and even earned a positive image of the aesthetics of their breasts. Something to think about.
