I always thought that it is a good idea to peruse foreign websites to see what people across the pond are thinking.
Especially the French! Those untrustworthy mollusks chomping/Beaujolais quaffing rabble-rousers!
Anyway, yesterday I came across an interesting tidbit .
After conducting a study of a large group of women (aged 18 to 35), sports medicine doctor Jean-Denis Rouillon is proffering that wearing a bra is totally unnecessary. At least for young women.
He is postulating that if a woman starts wearing a bra right after puberty, it will inhibit and weaken breasts natural suspension mechanism.
If women start wearing bras at an early age, they will start relying on them and remain hooked for the rest of their lives.
And that’s, by the way, is what Victoria’s Secrets is pushing women to do.
But In fact, says the good doctor, women don’t need to wear bras. It is a scientific fact!
This is a fascinating bit of news and I suspect that the powerful bra-lobby is not going to take this hanging down.
Just like the gun lobby, they are prepared to mount a large twin counterattack.
Victoria’s Secrets and Frederick’s of Hollywood are already saying that “it is the inalienable right of women to keep and bear bras” and “It is not bras that need breasts, but breasts that need bras”.
Breasts in America have acquired an almost mythical status.
You must have breasts, women are told, and the bigger the better.
And if pobrecita, you are breast challenged, we will sell you some.
Young girls already traumatized by the onset of puberty will do almost anything to attract the attention of the opposite sex.
And since in America everything is outrageous, be prepared to see nubile girls sporting gigantic mammary appendages hanging around.
But with these big guns you will need some support and that’s what the bra lobby, working hand in hand with the plastic surgeons pressure group, is pushing for.
Do you need to wear a bra? Judging by their gravity defying attires, Hollywood hotties have already spoken and it is certainly not up to a man to weigh what’s good for women.
