Are there any health risks associated with not wearing a bra? As someone with a small chest, I feel like I rarely need one unless exercising.

Great question! No, there isn’t any scientific evidence to support that by not wearing a bra, a person could be at a higher risk for developing things such as breast cancer. In 2013, a professor from France, Jean-Denis Rouillon, completed a 15-year study that looked at the benefits of women wearing bras and he didn’t find any! However, some teens my find it more comfortable to wear a bra, depending on the size of their chest. Bras aren’t all bad, as they can be helpful in reducing pressure off of one’s back. Wearing a bra or not wearing a bra is totally to you and what feels comfortable for you!
