From an energic pov, the way bras cross energy points, they cause blood sugar issues (in an acupuncture point).
Bras don't allow for proper lymph movement through the breast - there's a book out there called "Dressed to Kill" that shows the evidence of breast cancer correlating with bras - the fancier the bras, the more likely one is to get cancer.
Bras damage subcutaneous tissue under the breast, causing sagging.
I would/will actively discourage my daughters from wearing bras except in situations where their breasts are truly uncomfortable and get in the way.
Interesting. I never thought about it but it makes sense. All I knew was that they are incredibly uncomfortable and confining (and insulting imo).

Yes, same here. I remember the embarrassing and humiliating "bra snap" given by the boys in 7th and 8th grade.

When I was about 15 my mom literally cried about the fact that I refused to strap down my 36D breasts and the fact that my knees were "scraped up" She was horrified that my girlhood included a very free body and lots of tree climbing and hiking around the rural area I grew up in.
Gosh?!? How do we want our girls to be or think???
I find this a very very very relevant question as the mother of a 10 yr old. I still rarely strap down my now 42DD breasts and I betcha I'll never be in a fashion magazine (maybe Nat'l Geo). But I am a healthy and happy and tanned lover of creeks and forests and children and gardens and animals and all that...I would NEVER pass dress code and honestly I cannot imagine enforcing bra wearing on any person ever! ( and I do realize that the mama who started this thread had no intention of "forcing " anything..."

I just wanted to point out that if you want to go braless, that is your choice, but there is no evidence at all to support the claim that wearing one causes or contributes to breast cancer.

Not from a mainstream pov - as I said, it's an energic thing, you can choose to discount that if you like. Lymph is meant to move throughout the body, bras prevent that bounciness in the breast
