Is It Bad That I Haven’t Worn A Bra In 3 Months?
In fact, I was doing just that while on the phone with Melissa Doft, MD, a cosmetic plastic surgeon, when she inadvertently explained why I’d taken to “shelf-ing” my chest. “Going braless can cause stress in the shoulders, especially if you have larger breasts,” she says. “Because of the architecture of the body, they tend to hang and pull down. This can cause your shoulders to roll forward, putting a strain on the neck, shoulders, and upper back. That’s a major reason why people seek out breast reduction surgeries.”
