But even a few well-endowed celebrities are leaving the underwire at home, leaving onlookers wondering: Won’t they sag?
We’ve all heard the tale that bras supposedly ward off sagging with age, but the theory isn’t backed by experts.
“Wearing a bra doesn’t affect the risk of breast sagging, or what is called ‘breast ptosis,’ ” breast health specialist Cassann Blake, MD, told the Cleveland Clinic, adding that bras won’t change the shape either.
“It’s OK to do whatever is comfortable for you. If not wearing a bra feels good to you, that’s fine,” said Blake. “If you feel that some support is needed, then maybe a bralette or a wire-free bra would be a happy medium at home. It all depends on what you’re comfortable with.”
She also assured that wearing a bra or opting not to wouldn’t impact breast-cancer risks – so a little extra cleavage won’t kill anyone.
