9.5 Million British Women on Their Way to Sagging Breasts


A team of researchers from Portsmouth University claim that 9.5 million women in the UK could be irreversibly damaging their breasts by practicing sport and not wearing a proper sports bra.

The study shows that as a woman jogs a mile, her breasts bounce in a 3D figure of eight for over 135m, a movement the team points out strains fragile tissues and ligaments and eventually leads to sagging breasts.

Researcher Dr Joanne Scurr said "People rightly spend time and effort to get the right footwear for exercise and it is equally important to wear the correct sports bra.” The report recommends wearing a sports bra manufactured by the studies sponsor.

i never understood how some women can play sports or exercise in the gym.
I mean, doesn't it hurt? don't they feel the muscles being pulled? no wonder mny women need breast plastic surgery!

Hopefully the research will be used to advice and encourage women to wear the right bra. there's no point wearing a low support or underwired or push up bra in a gym!
1. it is bad in the long term and
2. it just looks sore to other people's eyes!

"i never understood how some women can play sports or exercise in the gym" without the right attire.

Of course they recommend buying the bra that their sponsor makes.

Hmm, conflict of interests much?

  It's Not..  
A study, it's a paid for advertisement, masquerading as a study.

"The report recommends wearing a sports bra manufactured by the studies sponsor."

  its not even a study..  
... but its still legitimate. Its common sense. Also when is hanes going to come out with studies analogous to this that show that millions of men are permanently damaging there testes and scrotums by wearing boxers. Whitey tights are a must... frankly its just too sore on everyones eyes to see saggy nuts.

  ok, the sponsr bit sounds like an advertisement  
but this is common sense; i mean i have seen it first hand. Women who know and wear the right things have firmer breasts than those who dont and i haven't seen any exceptions to this rule until now.
  by: DarkAngelJG     09/12/2007 06:55 PM     
  I just throw mine over my shoulders  
and tie them in a knot behind my neck.
I know that's a visual that has all you guys hot and sweating. Unless someone finds a way to reverse gravity, sagging is going to be part of life. I'm to sexy for a bra, to sexy by far!

Send pics! You want to be my man bee-ach!
  by: valkyrie123     09/12/2007 08:38 PM     
  I for one...  
find sagging breasts better than one filled with "silly cones" In fact I find them sexy. Keep burning them bras ladies

Pics or it didn't happen.

  ive been wearing a bra everyday for over 20 years  
and the damn things STILL sag half way down my torso when I take it off. I don't care how good of a bra you wear, all kinds of things cause sagging breasts from gravity to breast feeding...there is NO WAY to stop this from happening. People should just learn to love them no matter what they look like and stop cutting themselves up to make them look better. They are just going to sag again in 10 or so years anyways!

  @ ladie  
"stop cutting themselves up to make them look better"
you are right, it is inevitable but can be delayed by wearing the right support. Many sport bras are not what they claim to be. Same way someone shouldn't jog in high heels i think this issue should be addressed better.

  a bit rude but had to post it!  
  by: DarkAngelJG     09/13/2007 02:03 AM     
I had something to put in one i would wear a bra too.

Hope you changed it a couple of times at least! :P
  by: captainJane     09/13/2007 02:08 AM     
  haha captainJane!!!  
i knew someone was gonna go there! ;o)~

I'll tell you what though, at any given time I own 2 regular bras and 2 sport bras...the good ones are expensive and the cheap ones dont wonder my mother changed the song to "Do you boobs hang low?"!!!
  by: ladiedragonfli   09/13/2007 06:32 AM     
Thanks for the laugh!

  I knew a lady who bought one of those  
24 Hour Living Bras.
It starved to death in one day because she had nothing to feed it.

  LOL Dark  
That was funny as hell. Thank you for the laugh.

  I hope people dont take this seriously.  
If running can sag breasts, then what about sex. Next they will be telling girls to look sexy, dont have sex. =)

I know they bounce in a figure 8 for more then 300m during a good roll in the hay. in fact we go for a figure 9, and 7, 3 and 4. i don't know, you could mix it up a bit.

Honestly what does that leave, missionary style thats it... go slow Herald, don't want them to bounce.
  by: soda1   09/13/2007 06:24 PM     
  It's also a matter of comfort  
I don't understand how women can do active sports like running whilst wearing a standard bra, they just aren't designed to provide enough support.

DarkAngelJG - You can get underwired sports bras, I have one, it fits far better than my non-wired one.
  by: TabbyCool     09/13/2007 06:31 PM     
  interesting, but not surprising  
in high school gym, i was always embarrassed doing jumping jacks and things like that because i'm a D cup, and i wasn't wearing a good bra. not only did i feel silly without support, it hurt!

when i got my first sports bra, it was the most amazing feeling to be able to do anything without excessive bouncing and pain in my breasts.

take it from me, ladies. get the sports bra. not even for the anti-sagging protection, because it's true that you'll end up sagging anyway, but for the comfort!

i love the way wired bras make you look but i hate the fact that i have to keep buying them because every 4 months the wire comes out.
