I wouldn't be surprised if breasts are larger now than they were in the past, due to the xenoestrogens in the environment. It seems plausible, especially in conjunction with decreasing sperm counts and the increase in "moobs"...

Yeah...I don't go freewheeling unless I'm deathly sick.
Truth be told, I'm not entirely above getting them realigned permanently once I'm certain I'm done having kids. Primal or not, I want my girls to stay perky.

For me yes I am 42D and the girls would be down to by knees before to long if I let them go free. I think for the younger gals though the occasional freedom would allow for pectoral muscle developement but for me not a chance right now.

I'm fairly small-busted. After several rounds of doctors scaring me stupid about lumps and breast calcifications, all of which turned out to be nothing, I did some reading on fibrocystic disease and read about the correlation between bras and breast lumps. Since then, I've stopped wearing underwire up-lifters except for special events, and instead wear either teen training bras (Victoria Secret has a really good one) or nothing. I *think* my breasts are less fibrocystic as a result. They certainly feel better free-range

Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
As far as the "bras not preventing sagging" thing, I don't think it takes into account the toll of gravity on the connective tissue in the breast witch def. causes sag! So I think bras do prevent sag in the long run.
