Episode Info: (0:41) Welcome Welcome back listeners to The Paleo View to episode 355! We are glad you are here! This week's topic is one that Stacy asked Sarah about long ago, and it has taken her that long to do the research There are a lot of myths around this topic, so this show is more of a myth-busting discussion Be warned listeners, Stacy and Sarah may agree to disagree on various points within this discussion This show is sponsored by Butcher Box, one of The Paleo View' longtime partners on the podcast Stacy and Sarah are so glad to have them back and look forward to telling listeners more about their products You can get $15 off your first order plus free bacon by visiting The topic this week is wired bras, shapewear, and compression stockings This has been a blog post topic bubbling in Stacy's head for two years However, when Stacy started staying home and left her corporate job, she started wearing wired bras less often and made a statement regarding how she had lowered her risk of breast cancer - which wasn't a true statement, as addressed by her followers Stacy thought it was a scientific fact because it is mentioned so often that wired bras increase your risk of breast cancer Where Stacy thinks that Sarah and her will have some nuances on their discussion is on Shapewear because Stacy has personally worn body shapewear on almost a daily basis, which she found did have positive impacts Sarah found that this was a challenging topic to research To ease the research process, Sarah divided the topic of compression garments into three main areas Shapewear Bras Compression stockings From here Sarah tried to look into what research has been done on each one of these individually Tangent - corset wear and corset training can cause a lot of health issues, which has been known for a long time now This is a different thing because it is no longer a normal fashion anymore Shapewear today doesn't compare even close to the same level of compression that corsets did/do So for today's discussion, corsets are not a part of the discussion Stacy just wants to take a moment to honor Sarah's soapbox about women's appearances Stacy is living for that and is here for it There is societal normalcy that you may want to participate in when it comes to wired bras and shapewear Stacy lost a lot of weight and had a lot of sagging skin; her shapewear gave her comfort during a certain time in her journey (14:05) Research on Compression Garments There is a difference between low-pressure compression garments vs. medium compression garments High pressure would be corset training There is some science that separates out low pressure vs. medium pressure garments There are some documented effects of shapewear, specifically with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease There have been studies comparing individuals wearing compression garments on the abdomen and those who experience rapid weight gain, as the symptoms are very similar What h...
