If you’ve ever been inclined to go braless, but were met with shrieks of disdain from your mother or your best friend, don’t give up hope. While it’s true that some women really need to wear a bra due to breast size or comfort, many others may find it quite possible and quite liberating not to do so. Here’s why:
One of the problems with wearing a bra, especially in the summer, is the amount of underboob sweat it produces and then holds against your skin all day. Without a bra, you can air it all out and be free from having sweat trapped against your body.
Your True Chest Shape Can Be Seen
As a culture, we’ve all grown accustomed to seeing breasts in the shape of a bra – perfectly round and padded and lifted. Going braless allows the real you to come out and be seen.
You Are One of a Kind
Since many different women are choosing the bra-free look, not just ones with perfect natural breasts, we can see how unique every woman is in her body shape. It is a great reminder of how we are all individuals with different shapes and sizes and one is not better than the other, just different.
That “Just Took Off my Bra” Feeling
You know what I mean – that amazing feeling when you first take off your bra at the end of the day. There’s nothing quite like it and you can live in that feeling all day long without a bra.
Bras are expensive. They have to be replaced on a regular basis, thus ensuring a regular expense. Not wearing one eliminates this expense altogether.
Rock the Crop Top
The crop top continues to be a fashion staple and one that lends itself well to a bra-free look. If you haven’t tried one before, you may want to check it out and see how great of a look it can be.
No Pressure Lines
Even the best, most expensive bras can leave uncomfortable marks and impressions on your skin every day. No bra – no marks!
A Little Adventure
If you’re the risk-taking, adventurous type, going without a bra can provide that rush of stepping out into new territory or flying without a parachute. Yes, it can be a risk, but one that can also provide great rewards.
Your Boobs Won’t “Sag”
A fifteen year French study concluded that women who don’t wear bras actually develop more muscle tissue, allowing their bodies to support their breasts naturally. Hooray for boob muscles!
Being Comfortable with Yourself
If you feel free and good and confident without a bra, don’t let society dictate to you that you need to wear one. You are the one living with your choices, not anyone else, so make the one that’s right for you.
Feeling of Power
It takes an adjustment, but once that happens, the empowerment that comes with it is pretty amazing. Be yourself, choose what’s right for you, and if that means ditching the bra…go for it.
