The Nine Surprising Things Women Should Never Do With Their Breasts

 The Nine Surprising Things Women Should Never Do With Their Breasts

Women’s breasts are wondrous devices.  They can be used to nourish a hungry child or wrap your husband around your little finger.  But it’s important to take good care of them and there are 9 things you should always try to avoid:

1. Wear The Wrong Size Bra

1. Wear The Wrong Size Bra

Only 1 in 4 women wear their correct size, most running a bit too small. That extra bit of cleavage might look nice, but on top of being uncomfortable, studies show that squeezing into too-petite cups can restrict blood flow and cause scar tissue to form that potentially leads to cancer.

2. Pluck Stray Hairs

Every time you tug one of those pesky follicles from that sensitive area, you make the naturally thin skin much thicker, which frequently makes the hair grow back with more girth and inflammation.

3. Pinch Too Tight

We know some women enjoy a love bite or too while getting frisky with their partners. But these can also cause the same damage with scar tissue as wearing a bra that’s too small, leading to potentially painful issues. So try not to get too carried away in the boudoir.

4. Get A Nipple Piercing

Any piercing location runs the very common risk of becoming infected, but the nipple’s close proximity to the lymphatic system means that icky bacteria can quickly spread its way through your bloodstream.

5. Smoke Cigarettes

The harsh chemicals you’re inhaling with each puff of a cigarette are notorious for taking a toll on your lungs, but they also seep into the skin and zap the elastic, which is what makes regular smokers start to appear saggy.

6. Let Them Run Free

Heading out for a jog or hitting the gym without a sports bra, even for the most diminutive of ladies, can cause our girls to bounce around and form scar tissue on top of just being seriously painful for some.

7. Sleep Face Down

While this doesn’t make your breast shrink as rumors have claimed, the overnight pressure can still alter their shape over time. Grab a pillow to prop them up, or sleep on your side instead.

8. Let Them Dry Out

Breasts have extremely thin skin, which can be prone to loss of elasticity and itchy flakes. Remember to moisturize regularly with firming cream or lotion, preferably something with UV protection as well.

9. Judge One Side More Harshly

You might be disappointed in the slightly smaller size of your right side and frustrated that they can’t just work together to look normal. The fact is that, statistically speaking, having one bigger than the other (usually the left) is one of the most common things females across the world share in common, so there’s no need to go rushing off to a plastic surgeon for a few ounces of difference.

  • I am a medical anthropologist breast cancer researcher and co-author of Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras. This article is correct about the bra-cancer link. Numerous studies now show that bras are a leading cause of breast cancer. Bra-free women have about the same risk of breast cancer as men, while the tighter and longer the bra is worn the higher the risk rises. Sleeping in a bra is the worst thing to do for your breasts.
    One error in this article is the claim that you need a bra to run. Sports bras are tight and also interfere with circulation in the breasts. Actually, women were not designed by nature to require a sports bra to run or exercise. Women who stop wearing bras discover that their breasts lift and tone without the bra and they can soon run and bounce without any discomfort. Breast movement is necessary for lymphatic circulation, and the connective tissue and internal suspensory ligaments in the breasts strengthen with exercise. Essentially, your breast tissue gets stronger without a sports bra. If you are large-breasted, however, and feel uncomfortable running without breast support, then (a) try using a sports bra for those activities and promptly stop wearing it once you finish, and (b) try doing activities that are more appropriate for large-breasted women, such as swimming, biking, yoga, and other less bouncy activities.

    Finally, be aware that bras also cause breast pain and cysts, in addition to cancer. If a bra leaves red marks or indentations in the skin then it is too tight. To see if your bra is harming your breasts, try going one month bra-free. Your body will know the difference.
