In yet another case of science benefitting humanity, a group of French researchers have found that wearing a bra actually makes women’s breasts saggier over time. SOLD! No more bras!

The study followed 330 women over 15 years and found that, contrary to popular belief, those women who went au naturel had stronger muscles around their breasts, actually raising their nipple levels slightly. Those who consistently wore bras, meanwhile, not only  saw their breasts droop more than those women who went braless, and did not have any significant reduction in back pain.

The study focused on women ages 18-35 and it remains to be seen if those trends will continue as the women get older. In the meantime, let’s give it up for the group of scientists who not only figured out how to get grant funding to do nothing but study young women’s breasts, but are also using their knowledge to make the world a better place. Well done, science.
