The subject header is wrong, anyway.

What the scientist actually said was that a preliminary study with an inadequate sample size and an unrepresentative sample (i.e. nothing to place any serious significance on) indicated that wearing a bra doesn`t reduce sagging...for the unrepresentative sample of women in the study. Which might or might not have any relevance to any particular woman. What if, for example, most of the volunteers were young women? That`s quite likely and it would hugely skew any results concerning sagging. Even if the sample was representative, it still wouldn`t apply to individuals. A representative sample of women in the UK gives a height of 5`4", but that doesn`t mean any individual woman will be 5`4".

Maybe not directly, but definitely indirectly. Being more physically active has medical benefits. The results of being physically active without wearing a useful bra would probably put you off that physical activity. Weight training, OK. Swimming and cycling, OK. Most aerobic activity, ouch.

People have measured the forces involved with breasts moving in response to various types of movement (with volunteers and with engineering modelling software). They can be considerable and complex even with average-sized breasts and ordinary movement. Certainly enough to be at least uncomfortable if not downright painful.

Many bras aren`t very good (e.g. wires are a fundamentally bad solution to the problem). Most bras are designed for appearance rather than functionality. Many women are wearing bras that don`t fit them properly. But those are other issues.

It`s a pretty straightforward subjective assessment per individual. Wear one (that fits properly and was designed to work rather than just look pretty). Don`t wear one. Which is more comfortable?

I agree with her. I fluctuate between an E & F cup and I can`t imagine doing more than walking around my house without wearing one. Swimming without a top is great but there have been so few opportunities to do that.

Bras certainly make life more comfortable with bigger tits. Smaller ladies can go without one and not feel the lack- many of us more ample women find it better with one!

I am far from well endowed in the boob department, so I go bra-free when I`m hanging out at home. Otherwise I wear one, `cause it looks nicer under clothes, and a sports bra for the gym is a must. Even little boobs hurt when they bounce!
