Girls, we’re going braless.
It’s not a popular opinion that bras are annoying. It’s a fact. If you love the pleasure of removing your bra after a long day out, you’re not alone. There’s no denying that you feel more comfortable without a bra.
While going out braless is getting widely popular in Western countries, it’s still a hot debate in the local scene. For cultural reasons, it’s very uncommon to see braless women in public. And that’s because of the two small raised flesh in the center of the chest: nipples.
Elderlies will tell you, “Dress appropriately. People will look at your nipples.” But truth be told, the way your breasts sit in your chest isn’t your fault. It’s totally natural. One shouldn’t worry about going outside and enjoying the day without the discomfort of underwires and bra straps.
Believe it or not, going braless can make you feel better. And here are four main reasons why you should try it too:
1. It doesn’t cause sagging
Contrary to popular belief, there’s no strong evidence that leaving your bra behind can cause sagging, which is the loss of skin elasticity in the breast area. In fact, it’s due to various factors such as aging, genetics, and lifestyle.
2. It improves your overall health
You read it right. Wearing a tight bra obstructs the blood circulation below your chest, that’s why some women feel pain and discomfort. As a remedy, going braless is a good solution if you need to better your blood circulation. Plus, it reduces your chances of getting breast cancer. In case your breast needs support, it’s fine to wear underwire bras, but only for a few hours.
In a study on brassiere wearing and its correlation to breast cancer risk, it showed that wearing bra for more than twelve hours and sleeping with a bra on, and incorrect bra wearing have a significant association with breast cancer.
3. You save money
Honestly, having a self-care session from time to time can be expensive. And in today’s economy, we have to prioritize where we spend our money. Nobody woke up when they were eleven and wished to have boobs. So, why stress yourself in buying bras that annoy you if you can spend it on something else, like high-quality clothing?
4. It uplifts your self-confidence
That’s what liberation exactly means. If you have the freedom to go braless, then everything follows. If you’re at home most of the time, start going braless at home. Challenging the norms can feel fantastic, and it’s a kind of empowerment that gives comfort in many ways.
But it’s totally fine if you are unable to let go of your bras. Just make sure that they fit correctly and you feel better wearing them.
Now if you decide to go braless but are worried that judgmental people will bother you, feel free to wear outfits that have thick material or start investing in padded tops. Yes, padded tops will be your new bestie if you hate bras!
