Now that working from home is the norm for many, not wearing a bra is more and more common. But, could this lead to problems?
The Doctors answer a question for a viewer, who asks, "Should I be concerned that going sans bra will make gravity take effect sooner than I want?" The viewer tells us she wears a bra during online meetings but has been enjoying going bra-free. And the viewer is not alone, according to a poll we took online, 44 percent of people told us they are skipping the bra at home.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon warns it is important to wear a bra, explaining, "If you have larger breasts you need more support."
"As we age, due to gravity and the bigger the breast, the more weight there is, [the breast] ligaments stretch, and you get a sagging of the breasts," Dr. Ordon continues. "It is important to do everything you can do to support the breast. When you add that support of the bra it is making a huge difference."
But should some women wear their bra while sleeping? Dr. Ordon says if you have larger breasts-- a C or D cup -- he recommends wearing a bra to bed.
As for those dealing with back fat and the discomfort that wearing a bra can cause, Dr. Ordon explains even with diet and exercise this can be a tough area to get rid of excess skin and fat. One option, if you are unhappy with your back fat and willing to undergo a procedure, is a combination of liposuction and ultrasound (followed by wearing a compression garment for a few weeks) which can "cause the skin to shrink wrap," the plastic surgeon says.
Or if you do not want to undergo surgery, Dr. Ordon suggests wearing compression garments under your clothes to camouflage your excess back fat.
