Bras are controversial. Some women are happy to just go braless all the time and others need the support. You can love them or hate them, but if you’ve got boobies, you’ve probably worn at least one in your lifetime. In fact, chances are you wear them every day. As women, we’re very familiar with this little garment. But do we know everything there is to know about it? And more importantly, are all the things we know about bras true? Well, ladies, it’s time to take a look at 10 bra myths you’ve probably believed all your life. Some of these might surprise you.
1. Once you’ve figured out your bra size you’re set for life.
Not true, ladies. Your bra size changes throughout your life depending on how much weight you put on or lose. Boobs are just fat, so it’s only natural for them to change in size as your weight fluctuates. Also, the bra size isn’t the same for every brand. You might be one side at Victoria’s Secret and a completely different size at GAP. So make sure you get measured as often as possible and at every opportunity, so that you don’t end up buying bras that don’t fit you properly.
2. Sleeping in a bra will prevent your boobs from sagging.
Not true. Wearing a bra to bed has absolutely no effect on whether your boobs will sag or stay perky. It’ll just be very uncomfortable. In fact, your breasts will do whatever they want to do no matter what. So it doesn’t matter if you wear a bra at all. It’s just a matter of what makes you feel more comfortable.
