I would speak to a doctor about it, especially if you're not transsexual.
Wearing a sports' bra - where it doesn't compress so much as hold in place is likely harmless.
However, have you considered "wireless" bras ? I find sports' bras don't offer enough support (unless they're very tight - bringing you back to the "binding every day" issues), but many "wireless" ones are just as comfortable (if not more so) and offer more in the way of support. I would never wear an underwire every day - "wireless" bras are great and really comfortable if that's what you're looking for.
I know I'm gonna sound stupid for asking...but what exactly IS the breast elasticity? I can only assume based on what I googled but I think I need more of an explanation>.< Does it mean I'll sag more early for my age?
I never tried wireless bras but I'll look into it. Thanks for the info!!
