Today marks one full weeks since the UK went into lockdown.
The coronavirus outbreak means that huge numbers of Brits are now working from home.
We quickly found that suits were out, and baggy jumpers, tracksuit bottoms and PJs were in.
Women across the country celebrated one particular change in their clothing.
Aanchal Agrawal wrote on Twitter : “We are quarantined, but our boobs are finally free.”
While Rakshana said: “No bra day expended for another 14 days, yay!”
Unfortunately, experts have found that going without your bra could cause sagging breasts, ligament damage and poor posture.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Victoria Shelton, a garment technologist at Figleaves, said: "We all still need to wear a bra as our breasts need to be supported – due to their weight you may damage your posture or have back pain (otherwise).
"If breasts are left unsupported, damage can occur to the Cooper's ligament in the breast, causing them to sag."
If you’re looking to stay comfy at home, she recommends switching to a flex-wire bra.
This type of bra is often used in maternity designs or non wired styles with a seam cup which are made to support bigger boobs.
Victoria said that padded hooks and soft straps can help with comfort.
Head of sales at French underwear brand Louisa Bracq, Anna Akerlund said: "Putting on a well fitted bra should feel like you are not wearing a bra."
Other experts are even saying that not wearing a bra could cause permanent damage to the breasts and back.
Alexandra Thrower, brand manager at Chantelle, commented: "Don't wear (a bra) and you will get saggy boobs.
“It's as simple as that. It's gravity after all, and the heavier the bust, the worst it gets."
So, there you have it.
Bras back on, Ladies.
Unless, that is, you’re pregnant, as underwired bras are a big no-no.
You should be wearing unwired bras in pregnancy as wired can compress the breast and prevent milk ducts from forming.
Sigh, we knew it was too good to be true.
