'Brassage' pulled from market after 'GMA' report
FROM SUN-TIMES STAFF REPORTS
Maybe it was too good to be true.
A bra offering sexy style, great lift and a built-in lymph node massage is no longer on the market following a "Good Morning America" report questioning the bra maker's claims of improved breast health.
Makers of the "Brassage," once sold by Intimate Health for $59, claimed regular bras trap toxins in breast tissue, the GMA report said. The "Brassage" massage supposedly promoted breast health.
There was no medical science backing up the "Brassage" claims, the show said. One breast cancer survivor called it "exploitative" and a doctor said the idea that the "Brassage" somehow contributes to healthy breasts was "very far-fetched."
Christina Erteszek, "Brassage" inventor, walked out of the ABC interview when the reporter started questioning the idea that a massaging bra could help prevent disease. She said she "didn't imply for a moment this is a cure all" to breast disease.
