Garment technology expert Victoria Shelton said that breasts should be supported by bras. If not, the breasts can damage the ligaments which are connective tissue to maintain shape. While Dr. Riccardo Frati from Frati Cosmetic Surgery emphasized the importance of breasts to prevent their sagging shape due to gravity and age.
Another supportive expert is Anna Akerlund, head of sales of the Louisa Bracq brand, explaining that traveling without a bra can also have an effect on posture. It was most impactful for large breast owners.
“Our dress needs change because we feel more comfortable at home. But we all still need to wear a bra because our breasts need to be supported because of the weight that might damage posture or make you hurt your back if your breasts are not fully supported,” Victoria said.
“Bra will always support and hold breasts and not wearing them can have an impact on cooper ligaments. Breasts will naturally be loose due to time due to age and gravity,” added Dr. Riccardo.
