The Benefits of Wireless Bras for Breast Health

Starting from adolescence, girls and women are bombarded with the message that sexiness requires push up bras, boosting cleavage, and making our breasts look and feel as unnatural as possible. However, with the rise of the bralette, the standard for beauty is shifting and focusing more on natural beauty and comfort, and in turn, better health as well.

Wireless Bras Don’t Impede Proper Lymph Drainage – Holistic health pioneer Dr. Joseph Mercola and other documented studies warn that restrictive bra usage may be correlated with increased breast cancer risk. When worn all the time, underwire bras can prevent the drainage of lymph fluid from the lymph nodes, which are along the breast bone and by the arm pits. Without adequate flow of lymph fluid, our bodies cannot properly get rid of toxins, which may contribute to a higher risk of cancer. Wirefree bras do not contain the hard metal lining that sits beneath the breasts and constricts the flow of lymph fluid. Allow your body to detox as it should by taking your underwire bra off as soon as you get home from a long day at work and wearing a wireless bra more often. 

Wireless Bras Don’t “Over Stimulate” the Breasts – According to John D. Andre, D.C., N.D. and the “Law of Stimulation,” the frequent and consistent placement of metal against acupuncture points on the body can cause an overstimulation of these reflex points, leading to the eventual exhaustion and reduced function of their correlating organs. There is one reflex point under each breast, and they correlate to the liver, gallbladder, and stomach. Due to their exclusion of metal wiring, wireless bras contain only unrestrictive fabric that has been designed to naturally support the breasts. Feel great about wearing a True Body bra in place of an underwire bra more often, whether to work, when running the errands, or meeting the girls for a lunch date.

Wireless Bras Can Help Prevent Sagging – The usage of underwire bras may contribute to sagging breasts by restricting natural movement. A 15-year bra study in France found that women who did not wear bras, or did not wear restrictive bras, developed more breast muscle tissue for natural support and higher nipples for perkier breasts. Wirefree bras aren’t nearly as restrictive as conventional underwire bras and allow for the natural movement of the breasts throughout the day to give them the “workout” they need. As often as you can, do the “boob dance” and let your breasts jiggle and swing to support muscle and tissue strengthening.

The Bra Balancing Act: Underwire + Wireless – Breast health is just like healthy eating: it’s all about moderation. You don’t have to give up your favorite flattering, posture-enhancing underwire bra to have healthy breasts. Simply aim to rely on an underwire bra less and add in a seamless, comfortable, and wirefree bra more often into your schedule. Investing in a variety of wireless bras makes it that much more likely that you’ll reach for a bra sans wires. Our designers have made it our mission to combine comfort and style for options you’ll love wearing every day.   For all day wire-free comfort and seamless silhouettes, we highly recommend our True Body Collection
