In 1889, at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, Herminie Cadolle, French designer of a lingerie house, presented a corset in two pieces and was thus the origin of the first bra, called at that time corselet- throat. In 1904, the terms "gorgerette" and "throat" appeared in the Larousse; Three years later the renowned magazine Vogue popularized the word brassiere.
This is how the bra became an essential part of the feminine wardrobe. Initially worn as an underwear considered necessary for the maintenance of the chest, it has evolved during the ages and fashions to become a real accessory of seduction. It is now possible to obtain them whatever the tastes, the budget and the forms.
However, a recent study by Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon of the CHU in Besançon, France, highlighted the controversial effects of these fetish underwear. He was challenged by the fact that the athletes do not wear a bra and therefore decided to look into the matter.
In 1997, he decided to undertake a thorough research by bringing together a group of women between the ages of 18 and 35 who did not wear a bra. As it progressed, the nipples of these women turned up and their breasts seemed more firm. Without a bra, these women felt more comfortable and had better posture.
Bra and lymphatic circulation
Two anthropologists recently conducted a study to demonstrate the link between wearing bra and breast cancer. Having a compression effect on the lymph nodes, the bra prevents the natural elimination of toxins through lymphatic drainage. They accumulate in the breast and cause the appearance of masses that can be cancerous.
When the lymphatic capillaries (small vessels in the tissues of the human body) are compressed by brassieres, this prevents the circulation of the lymph in the vessels and causes it to stagnate. The toxins not eliminated then become harmful.
In addition, thermographic studies have established that wrapping the breasts by the bra tissue increases their temperature. A "sick" breast is warmer to the touch than a non-cancerous breast.
Know that when your breast is "free", a natural massage takes place during your travels, essentially during the walk. The lymph circulates freely and promotes the neutralization of the waste, which avoids the appearance of cysts and tumors.
Bra and discomfort
It must be admitted that the bra is really not the most comfortable part of your wardrobe, but many women are used to it and some even feel uncomfortable when they do not. Not in public. The fact of wearing a bra is totally subjective and the choice belongs only to you but know nevertheless that it is essential to give some free time to your breasts to let them breathe.
As soon as you have the opportunity, remove it! When you are at home have the reflex to remove it and most of all do not sleep with it. Not only will you experience discomfort, but the blood and lymph circulation (as mentioned above) will be blocked. Even lingerie manufacturers confirm it, do not keep a bra for more than seven hours and especially do not sleep with.
You must also make sure that the bras you wear are adapted to your morphology, they should not tighten or leave marks after you are stripped.
Bra and support
Contrary to conventional wisdom, wearing a bra on a long-term basis will not prevent your breasts from losing their firmness. If you think that the wearing of the bra will prevent your breasts from falling, it is not! On the contrary, the muscles of your breasts need to be solicited and work to maintain their gold elasticity, being precisely replaced by the bra, they become so lazy and will soften over time.
All the more so as with age, stretch marks, cellulite, aging skin become unavoidable, as well as the famous breasts "in washcloth." Whatever you do, your skin is destined to lose its elasticity and your breasts to fall off. Wearing the bra can slow down this phenomenon but can not make it inevitable.
