    I highly doubt that wearing a bra (or not) has any real bearing on anyone's health ... and question anything that suggests bras are linked to breast cancer ... because ... uh, how?
    I think we might have a troll on our hands here.
    no troll, google it
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      I even sleep in my sports bras, the only kind I own.

      I'm pretty small in that department (thank God) but still can't tolerate going bra-less, cancer risk be damned. I'm a total FAIL in the Grokett department when it comes to nudity or going barefoot - nope, only in the bathtub and then the clothes go back on.

        LJH, I totally understand haha. I'm just looking for some aid in research on the matter.

        The funny thing about getting on and off the wagon for me is, I either dive on or dive off. There is no nice and easy. All or nothing.

          God, why comment if you have nothing even half-productive to add?

            I don't think you're a troll but I agree with Amy and bloodorchid, the breast cancer thing is a bit far fetched. That said I do think that it is healthier, if you have small to medium girls to develop your own muscular support structure instead of relying on a bra to hold it together. Push ups etc. But, if the girls are large, a bra is probably a good idea.

            Getting your whole self down to a healthier weight will make the girls weigh less too unless you have the augmented kind (talk about un-Grokian).

            Personally, I hate bras and wear them as little as possible.

              FWIW, I would not do this in the regular world.

                    I've always had some big boulders even my parents have been pushing for me to get a breast reduction for years, but I'll worry about that AFTER I reach my goal. Now that I've found a new lifestyle that I LOVE. They've already shrank just a teensy bit (so excited!) And I certainly wasn't going to do this as they are now, Christ, I'd get black eyes and knock out children if I went braless in day to day life as is lol. Thanks for the insight.

                      I can't see a problem for smaller breasted gals going braless, but for myelf (sporting a 34H, which is not as glamorous as most people seem to think) I can't go without if I'm doing any sort of activity. For lounging around the house I go without, but since my main activity is horse back riding and involving a lot of trotting and cantering, just.. no. Just no. Not only does it look rediculous to be bouncing enough to knock myself out, even a loose bra that allows some bounce is painful to bounce in, so I actually double sports bra when I ride, and sometimes when I run, too.

                      Edit: I've seen articles about going braless, too. That hoisting the chest in a bra means the supportive ligaments in the breast tissue gets weak from not being used and then actually makes later sagginess even worse. But I guess if you use common sense and support them when needed or for important public get togethers (showing up braless at a wedding or a funeral would be incredibly frowned upon, of course) then there probably isn't much of an issue. Or at least if you can get away with it, a tank top with a shelf bra or something in it.

                        OK. Interesting article. There were some valid points about ill fitting or too tight bras causing lymphatic blockage. While I agree that underwire bras are torture devices, I think that article wanders off a bit into woo-land with the energy fields, etc.

                            Well that's Mercola for ya. He interviewed Mark a while back. Whole thing's on youtube. Great for a listen if you've an hour to spare.

                              Before I lost weight I was about a 40D. Now I'm a 36B and absolutely loving the smaller size. I found Mark's Primal Blueprint Fitness essential movements to be really great for toning up the whole chest/shoulder/back support structure.

                                +1 on the woo-woo factor for that one, JMO.

                                I had an aunt who never wore a bra in her life, only men's undershirts. Come to think, she never wore any womens' clothing nor did she ever marry or have a boyfriend ... hmmmm, you don't suppose ... ? LOL! No one in my (massively biggoted and uptight) family ever uttered the disgraceful 'L' word but I reckon that's what it was. I was too young to understand and she was my favorite relative. Anywho, she died of breast cancer and I guarandamntee it wasn't bra-caused.
