Women better off without bras: French study
TheLocal.fr ^ | 4-11-13 | Dan MacGuill

According to Rouillon, a sports science expert, the lesson to be learned from the preliminary results of his marathon experiment is that “bras are a false necessity”.

Using a slide rule and caliper, Rouillon spent years carefully measuring changes in the orientation of breasts belonging to hundreds of women, at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (University Hospital) in Besançon.

All the women involved in the study were aged between 18 and 35, although the professor was keen to stress that the group were not a representative of the global population of females.

Ultimately, however, he feels his work is not complete, since the findings are not definitive.

“We will simply have to recruit a larger sample of the female population, and conduct further research,” Rouillon added.

Get me a grant to quantify with “calipers and sliderules” (aka my hands) the shape and size of 18 to 35 year old demographic female breasts.

Thanks in advance.

I'm an idiot. I could have had a university job doing that.

Without doing our own research we’d have to be real boobs to believe that.

I thought Paul Potts was really great when he sang Nora Desmond on Britains Got Talent.

Well! If you consider that women survived for thousands of years before bras were invented, then I guess that the French scientists are correct.

Women look better with bras on IMO.

And it stands to reason that large breasts dangling down with no support just have to stretch the skin over time...unless that skin has some magical property of which I am unaware.

For jogging a sports bra is simply a must! No way around it.

So the researcher needs more time to get “abreast” of the issues at hand?

You just can't make this stuff up.

Please keep me abreast of the situation as it develops. I’d also see the results of this study in order to get my mind around it!

Finally, a scientific study that’s worth the money.

Do you know the German word for bra is "Holdsemfromfloppen"?
