• Ladies, Ditch the Bra for Your Health

    Article by Louise Kuo Habakus

    I should imagine this enticing headline and sexy picture above would attract even more men than women. It's all good because even though you won't get the expected arousing from such an article, it won't be in vain if you spread the word to your partner, spouse, girlfriend, mother, sister...  For, regardless of the increased lethal risk that should have a sufficiently deterrent effect in itself, it is time to speak out against “this unnatural accessory making life unpleasant for most women” and “obstructing their breathing in every way” according to free the boobies.fr, a French website entirely dedicated to the abolition of this torture device and for those who would like to take the leap but are not sure how to. Having successfully done it more than five years ago, I must confess it wasn't that easy to begin with. For many reasons I shall not list to keep it short and out of decency. However, being lucky enough not to be equipped with Mercedes bumpers (tongue-in-cheek sexist cliché), the adaptation period didn't take very long and wasn't too inconvenient for me. Ladies, please rest assured that if you decide to go braless, your boobies won't sag any further (even for the bustiest of you). Quite the contrary as it did for me even after decades of serious abuse.

    As explained on the above-mentioned website, ”under normal circumstances, developing breasts adapt naturally to gravity strain and movement restriction, which is perfectly normal and even necessary. As a result of these stimuli, breast support (Cooper's ligaments mainly) will strengthen to allow them to maintain a firm consistency. Sadly, out of ignorance and for cultural reasons, humanity invented bras which confine your bust, not allowing these movements and thus preventing normal function... Impeded breasts then get painful, developing various ailments, not by their very nature but simply because they have been kept utterly passive... which turns out to be absolutely harmful”.

    A bit like glasses or crutches.

    However, I should point out that this is a very personal approach motivated by my spiritual awakening and intuitive alignment work to my true self, which necessarily calls for a transformation of my belief system and resulting habits and behaviours. In addition to a natural breast lift, I also gained greater self-confidence and greater body acceptance plus the clear evidence that ageing doesn't have to mean decaying (unless you're willing to buy into this programmed inevitability).


    I realize it may feel some combination of uncomfortable, unprofessional, or unnecessarily provocative to go braless. Societal convention has most of us trussing up before going out.

    If you’re reading this at home, do me a favor and unhook. Then keep reading.

    There’s evidence of a relationship between bras and breast cancer.

    Yes, seriously.

    Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Cancer & Bras

    Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer authored a book called Dressed To Kill. They interviewed 4,000+ women in five major U.S. cities over two years. Half the women had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They found:

    • 75% of women who slept in their bras developed breast cancer
    • 1 in 7 who wore their bras 12+ hours per day developed breast cancer
    • 1 in 168 who did not wear a bra developed breast cancer
    • Within one month of ditching their bras, women with cysts, breast pain, or tenderness found their symptoms disappeared. tenderness found their symptoms disappeared.
