Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, who is totally not a perv or anything, spent 15 years studying women’s breasts, and in an up-close-and-personal way. His goal was to figure out what worked best for breasts, so he followed 330 women, measuring their breast size, shape and direction for more than a decade. His conclusion? “Medically, physiologically, anatomically” women don’t benefit from bras.
On the contrary, claims Rouillon, who is the main boob guy at University of Besançon in Besançon, France, women’s breasts just get saggier when they wear bras. But that’s only if you’re a certain kind of lady — you know, the kind with perky little tits to begin with. Rouillon admits, “It all depends on the structure of each breast. An overweight, 45-year-old woman with three kids has no business not wearing a bra.” Well, okay then. [Daily Mail; Gawker] [Breast photo from Shutterstock]
Your annual visit to the lady doctor isn’t necessarily the most pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Between the poking, prodding and your casual evasion of pointed questions like “How many drinks do you have a week?”, going to the the gynecologist is a necessary but not entirely awesome experience.

Answers forums and WebMD. It goes without saying that this never really works out for the best. This time, we’ve decided to do the work for you! We consulted the best of the best on the Internet to come up with answers to all those burning questions that feel a little too personal to ask your doctor. Keep reading »

Middle school is rough on all of us. It’s especially rough when the administration at your middle school blames you for the sexual harassment you’re getting because of the size of your boobs.

You knew you should be examining them every month and plucking your nipple hair, but a new study found that squeezing your breasts regularly may prevent cancer. The study done at University of California at Berkeley concluded that compressing breast tissue may prevent malignant cells triggering cancer. “Here we show that physical force can play a role in the growth — and reversion — of cancer cells … Malignant cells have not completely forgotten how to be healthy; they just need the right cues to guide them back to a healthy growth pattern,” said Gautham Venugopalan, a leading member of the research team. Got that ladies? We need to squeeze our boobs to remind them to stay healthy. No problem, we’ve got that covered. And we’re sure the men in our lives will be happy to help.

“These babies are great [points to her breasts]. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”
Normally I think Lea Michele can be sort of insufferable (mostly because she was once rude to my friend at an audition, like, five years ago) but I have decided that I like anyone who refers to her breasts as “prizewinners” and gabs about them at length. Also, “boobs” is the last word that come to mind when I think about the goody-two-shoes “Glee” star, so I’m kinda excited to see what these prizewinners can do. [Marie Claire] [Photo: Marie Claire]
