4 bra myths we all believed at some point

Believe it or not, these myths about bras you might have heard at some point in your life are actually not true.

  1. Not starting to wear a bra is definitely not the reason your boobs are not as perky as you think they should be. In reality we all have different types and shapes of boobs, and are not all destined to have perky looking boobs. The larger your breasts are, the more likely they are to sag a little.
  2. Sleeping with a bra on will cause your boobs to sag. A couple of things can cause your boobs to sag, like age or breastfeeding or even some diseases, sleeping with a bra is however not one of them. So if you are comfortable doing that for whatever crazy reason you might have, feel free.
  3. Wearing a bra can cause cancer. Everyone I’ve heard this myth from has been unable to explain to me exactly how this can occur. Well here’s the truth; wearing a bra and getting cancer have nothing to do with each other.
  4. They are specifically made to bring pain upon women. Ok even I still believe in this one, and I have a sneaky feeling somewhere out there, is a hidden invention to make them more comfortable. Asides that bras are admittedly uncomfortable contraptions that give our boobs support, except you are an A cup, then it’s a conspiracy, you don’t really need a bra.
