A French researcher embarked on a 15 year study to exclusively find out if bras are a woman's boon or bane. Surprisingly, his preliminary findings after measuring 320 women between the ages of 18 and 35 revealed that bras were not helpful in preventing sagging.

Contrarily, he found out that there was more breast sagging as result of trying to defy gravity. Apparently, those women who did not wear a bra regularly had more perky breasts compared to those who did.

Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon was reported as saying, “Medically, physiologically, anatomically - breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.” He realized that nipples of women who never wore bras were an average 7mm higher in relation to their shoulders each year compared to bra users.

The women were measured regularly at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, Besançon for 15 years. Rouillon's study proved that a lack of bra did not deteriorate or orient breasts. Moreover, he found 'widespread improvement' in the breasts' orientation.

However, Rouillon did agree that the sample size was too less to be a representative of the population and a larger study involving thousands of women is needed to validate the findings. In his preliminary findings, he merely confirmed his belief that women do not actually require a bra.
