    Oh I will definitely look into that! Thanks!

    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.

        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.
        I have rarely worn bras or worn minimalist shelf bra types most of my life and I've had breast cancer. No, I don't think the bras caused it.

            If that was for my aunt, thank you. It was a looooong time ago but she was an awesome old broad and I still miss her.

              At the risk of sounding a bit conspiratorial, I do think there could be a link to high dairy consumption and reproductive cancer.

                I go braless at 34C (i think that's my size anyway, I haven't worn a bra in over 3 years now).

                I do have a 'shelf bra' in my tank tops, but it's not exactly "supportive." I just like having a second layer of fabric there.

                  Pains me to admit it because I eat obscene amounts of yogurt & custard, but that one is easier to accept.

                      I would tend to agree with you if you are talking about hormone treated cows.

                        Yep, I think we should all just go off into the woods with Diana and hang out nekkid. We don't have any woods for that around here but we do have a nude beach.

                          I wear a lot of those tops too. Victoria's Secret.com has a whole line of them and dresses with the built in shelf bra too.

                            It's too cold to go topless here, but in a warm locale, i'm all over it.

                              No science here, just my personal view. i generally try to do/use things that are as natural as possible, but I've learned that I've got to choose my battles (with myself). For example, I tried the no shampoo thing, and my hair NEVER acclimated to it. Sure, I bet Grok wouldn't have used shampoo, but I live in modern times where having chronically greasy-looking hair is really not acceptable. So, I compromise and use a shampoo with no SLS, and I try to only use it 2-3 times per week. Same thing with body care things - I try not to use anything on my skin that I wouldn't feel ok about consuming, because i know that skin absorbs whatever you put on it. Cleaning products, ditto.

                              But sometimes I just have to accept that I'm not living in the woods with a crew of cavemen. I want to both be healthy and look good. And i do not look good without a bra. And I really can't justify going without one just to be more natural, in the way I can justify using baking soda to brush my teeth, or coconut oil on my skin. In my mind, those kinds of choices matter a lot more.

                                No way, my breasts are too big. It gets all sweaty and yucky if I do that, and I can't move comfortably either cause they hurt when they sway.

                                Grokette probably had smaller breasts than me. At least I hope so for her.
