The Truth About Tits – Breast Myths Debunked

When it comes to breasts, there is as much utter nonsense out there as there is reality. What is the actual average cup size? Will wearing a bra to bed prevent saggy breasts? Do guys really prefer ladies with larger knockers? Here are a collection of myths surrounding breasts that we hope will put an end to misconceptions!

Myth: Men would rather have a woman with larger breasts.
Numerous studies have shown that the amount of emphasis that ladies assume men put on breasts as a key to attraction is grossly overestimated. Men have shown that they would rather have breasts that are in proportion to the rest of the body rather than larger, enhanced breasts.

Myth: The average cup size is a C.
According to the lingerie and underwear industry, more bras are being sold with DD cup size and up than any other aspect of the market. This is an increase in size in the last few decades. Numerous theories have been bounced around as to why breasts are getting bigger, including increased hormone use in foods, childhood obesity, or purely the fact that women are becoming more aware of their correct breast size and are buying bras that fit.

Myth: Your breasts stop developing a few years after puberty starts.
Thought that your boobs were done developing when you hit around 16 or so? Not the case! Your breasts don’t reach their ‘full’ maturity until a woman is in their mid-20s, but will still continue to grow and change all the way through to menopause.

Myth: Wearing a bra all the time will prevent them from sagging.
Wearing a bra 24/7, including to bed, will do nothing to keep the normal, biological course of action that a pair of breasts will follow. It also won’t reduce their size or keep them perky. Another myth surrounding continual bra wear is that is causes cancer – another complete myth.

Myth: Most women who get breast implants do so to increase their original breast size.
The average breast-enhancement isn’t looking to increase their size – they are looking to replace tissue that they have lost to regain their original size. This includes women who have been pregnant and lost volume due to body changes, as well as women who have gone through breast surgery and are looking to return back to their pre-op size.

Myth: Society is causing more young girls to get breast enhancement surgery.
In 2010, less than 5% of all breast implant surgeries were performed on 18 and 19 year olds. In fact, more young women went through breast reduction surgery than young women went through breast enhancement.
