Freedom From Bras During Lockdown? Research Says NO

Quarantine days are a big relief from the pain of wearing a bra all day!

There are a lot of things you may hate about wearing bras. For many women, the best time of the day is when they throw away the bras after reaching home!

We understand the happiness of not wearing a bra during coronavirus lockdown. You might have even noticed a lot of memes and posts of women revealing their happiness of bra-free lockdown days on social media. After all, working from home doesn’t demand a bra! Do they? 

However, Experts Have Other Things to Say

Women enjoy the freedom from bras during the 21-days lockdown which can have adverse effects on breasts. 

Experts alert that not wearing a bra during the lockdown can affect breast health. It can damage the cooper’s ligament which leads to sagging breasts. Shape and posture could change for larger cups because bras provide ideal support to large breasts. 

What about cooper's ligament when you are in Lockdown

A garment technologist from a UK-based online retail company says that breasts that are unsupported for a longer period could suffer damage to Cooper’s Ligament which is the connective tissues in the breast that help maintain structural integrity. 

Dr. Rccardo Frati, a cosmetic surgeon explains that bras are important to maintain support as breasts them to sag due to gravity and age. 

Anna Akerlund from Lousia Bracq says that ditching bras could affect posture for large breasted women and it could affect the entire shape of your breasts. 

As you get older, your skin turns to be less flexible and the gravity keeps pulling the breasts down. Wearing a bra can stop the skin and tissue around the breasts from drooping.
