→The health and sexy benefits of not wearing a bra
According to an article entitled: How to go Braless by Vanessa Raymond
- 1. Breast Health. Circulation within the lymphatic system is an all-important part of maintaining breast health. And, you guessed it; bras compress the lymph vessels that are close to the breasts surface, preventing the flow of the lymph fluids that help to clear out toxins. In their book, Dressed to Kill: the Link between Breast Cancer and Bras, authors Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer contend that regular bra-wearing may well be responsible for the huge increase in breast cancer in modern times. So, many women choose to forgo bras for reasons of health and not just comfort. To women who feel compelled to wear a bra, consider massaging your breasts at the end of the day to increase lymph fluid circulation. (To the guys who are reading this, were talking massage for the purposes of health and not arousal.)
- 2. The Nipple Factor. Ever heard of fripples? (Hint: Its not the name of a new Starbucks drink.) The possibility of prominent visible nipples is one of the biggest deterrents to many women who might otherwise go braless. Here are a few solutions to embarrassment over visible nipples:
- 1. Nipple tape. Nipple tape comes in several different shapes and sizes but the primary idea is to compress the nipple to the level of the surrounding tissue, thus making it less distinctive. There are variations to the nipple tape theme, such as pasties or glue-on cups. Beware that some of these products are designed for function and others for decorative effect.
- 2. Remember your jacket. Do you remember the boys in high school who liked to turn on the fan and watch the results? When shopping for frozen foods have a jacket or wrap close at hand. In a similar vein, you dont want to get caught braless in the rain.
- 3. Vests. Vests are wonderful accessories for going braless with ease. There you are beneath your vest–fashionable, comfortable and braless–with no one the wiser for it.
- 4. Dont look down. Lets face it. There will be eyes glued to your breasts, whether youre wearing a bra or not. But just because theyre looking doesnt mean you have to.
- 3. Size Matters. Girls who are AA on a good day can wear just about anything without support but those who are more well-endowed have a different, um, set of problems.
The flop factor. One issue for women with large breasts is that movement of the breasts can be painful, particularly at times of the month that breasts tend to be swollen or sensitive. Good posture can help to offset this effect.
The modesty question. Big mammaries tend to migrate more than the smaller ones do….out of ones shirt, into ones face when you lean over, and so on. Your choice of clothing makes a big difference in this regard. Get a sense for which articles of clothing contain (but dont restrain) your breasts. Practice at home until you feel comfortable being out in public without a bra.
Chafing. Large breasts can chafe the skin just beneath the breast. Sweating, rashes and even fungal infections are also possibilities. Many women find that silk and cotton camisoles worn next to the breast lessen these issues. Some women also apply antiperspirant beneath large breasts or carry a small towel to dry the area beneath their breasts on occasion; an item one friend of mine affectionately calls her “titty towel.
Shelf bras. Shelf bras are pretty much what they sound like–a support built into an undershirt that basically provides a shelf for your breasts to rest upon. Unfortunately shelf bras tend to make your chest look like, well, a shelf, but they do provide some support.
- 4. Breast Fetishists aka “Breast Men. Most women are all too familiar with the mannerisms of this particular breed: During conversation, the mans eyes are glued to your mammaries to the point that youre tempted to start using sign language. Sociologists and anthropologists remain unsure as to why breast fetishism is as pervasive as it is (sounds like a topic for a government study). Meanwhile, get used to it…….breast men are ubiquitous.
- 5. Breaking In. A week on a topless beach can do wonders for your self-consciousness about going braless. But if youre not planning a trip to the Mediterranean anytime soon, try starting out in the winter when youll be wearing layers anyway. Get used to how your breasts feel hanging loose–remember that women had been living that way for years before the invention of bras.
There are many ladies and actresses that preferred to show themselves to the public and without wearing a bra. They might be thinking that by doing so it will make them look sexy, though some really look awful. Anyways, according to many that wearing bra is a proper way to protect your breast and it indeed a proper way, but some experts would not say that it is unhealthy but instead just making your self comfortable in sexy manner.We all know that we can not always go braless, but if we do go braless at home and other times when a bra is not needed, will it affect our health? Is it better for our health or worse?
I decided it was time to find out. Sure all us women have grown up to believe that our breasts will sag and the ligaments will stretch out if we do not always wear a bra. I am sure you have heard this rumor, but is it true? Here is some information that I have found by searching for an answer:
Women with cups sizes larger than a DD should wear a bra throughout the day. Any size smaller than DD can get away with wearing a bra only when they want to, like when they are out of their homes or in the public eye. Bras are made to lift the breasts, shape the bust, and support the bust so that you will have a better shape and look in all your clothes. A good fitting bra with plenty of support can alleviate back and shoulder pain in women with larger busts. So yes, a bra can be important to your well-being. But should you wear a bra all the time, even at home or even to bed? No this is not healthy.
Read on to understand why:
**Many natural-health experts encourage women to not wear bras, and a number of women who follow this advice report that they don't suffer from breast pain, even during PMS. One therory:
Without the daily constriction of a bra, circulation to the breasts is optimal. So even if hormonal fluctuations trigger an increase in pain-causing breast fluid, the body is able to reduce discomfort. And some experts take this a step further, theorizing that a buildup of waste-carrying fluid can lead to cancer, making proper circulation a must. Still, no studies confirm this.
The bottom line:
It's perfectly fine to go braless, but there's no bona fide health reason to do so. Instead, simply make sure that the band of your bra (especially if it is underwire) isn't too tight. You should be able to comfortably fit two fingers between your chest and the band, and there should be no dent in your skin when you remove the undergarment. This might alleviate some of the tenderness you've been experiencing. Elizabeth Gunther Stewart, MD, FACOG. (First Magazine).
Make sure you buy the right size bra (not too small, too tight) for your body. Measure properly and often. Your bust can change with weight loss, weight gain, PMS, Menopause, water retention, body building, and exercise. Therefore, at least measure your bust each time you buy a NEW BRA. This will help guarantee a proper fit. Wearing a bra that is snug, constricting and one that makes you pull at the girth will not allow you ample circulation. A proper fitting bra is best for better health and and a better fit in all your clothes.
Go BRALESS at home and when you can and never wear your bra to bed. Give your body the comfort it needs.
And when you do need to wear a bra, get the right size and a comfortable fit. Take a look at my other guides to get the proper fit by using the proper measurements. Then come check out my auctions for bras that you will love to wear. - by Sharon pokerqueen2win
