Hi there,
Thank you for contacting Ask Alex with your concern. It’s really important to feel comfortable asking questions about your body, and we’re here to help you with any issues you might have. It shows you’re taking your health seriously, which is great.
To answer your question, most professionals say that wearing a bra does not prevent your breasts from sagging, and not wearing one does not cause your breasts to sag or droop. It also won’t impact the shape or size of your breasts. However, if you have a larger cup size, you may feel more comfortable wearing a bra or a sports bra.
Having someone you trust to talk to about these topics, whether it’s a parent, a guardian, or another trusted adult, can be a good idea. They can provide you with support and guidance tailored to you and your personal situation. If you feel insecure or have more questions, seeking advice from your trusted person can be helpful.
