Did you know that bras were invented in the early 1920s? Bras were designed to flatten breasts, to enhance the tube-like “boy look”.
Lately I find myself hating my bras, hate wearing them that is. They restrict my movement and because of the hot summer days and humidity boobs/bras get sweaty and it is not pleasant! Also, in the winter when you’ve put on too much clothes….never ending, doesn’t matter what season, if you move, you get sweaty.
I either walk or bike to work, approx 3 km one way and depending on my speed, it’s quite a sporting event! Yes, even the walking! And when I get to work, I just wanna take my bra off. I am also quite active during my workday.
Bra is not my best friend anymore. It used to with the triple push up padding in my teenage years lol but I don’t care about that anymore.
So most days, I will just free the boobs and let the girls loose. They feel so much better that way! Nowadays I am pretty much bra-less and loving it! I opt for tank tops or crop tops under my t-shirts or whatever looks nice.
What happens when you stop wearing a bra….
Contrary to what we might believe, not wearing a bra doesn’t cause your breasts to sag. In fact, a long-running French study has proven that bras most likely have the opposite effect, causing breasts to lose their shape over time. According to the study, the “support” of bras weakens the muscles in the chest, making the breasts droop.
All that tightness and squeezing around your chest can slow your circulation by compressing your major blood vessels. This has actually been proven to create cardiovascular issues down the road, which your favorite push-up is just not worth.
For many of us, it’s comfort. Seriously, is there any greater feeling of relief than taking off your bra after a long day? It is sweet, sweet freedom.
Bras serve no actual purpose. They lift up and squish together our boobs just so that men will like them more lol
Are you bra-less yet? Do you like wearing a bra?
