    Mythbusting: Shaving your armpits is not linked with breast cancer, hairy armpits may require shaving all the way to the sides of your breasts, that’s normal and has no side efffects.
    And not wearing bras does not cause sagging. Sagging just depends on relaxing of the epidermis, inner structure of breast and the breast ligament that looses down, the only thing bra can do is keeping up the breast and gently (sometimes not at all, too bad) squeezing your breast in a particular shape and has no positive role in the atrophy of its ligament.
