Could Kim Kardashian's Bra-less Fashion Statement Benefit Health Too?

Posted: Updated:

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kelly Brook ditched their bras on the red carpet for a more revealing look. However, these celebs might be on to something health-wise.

A French study published last year says that going bra-less is better for breast health. Researchers found that bras actually accelerate sagging and cause back pain, contrary to popular belief.

The researchers at University of Besançon studied over 330 French women, aged 18 to 35, over 15 years. They found that women who did not wear bras benefited in the long term as they developed more muscle for natural support.

However, the study cautioned that women who have worn bras since puberty should not start taking the bras off because their tendons, ligaments, and muscles have been severely weakened from decades of bra use.
