What is the best part about getting home (besides not being at work)? Taking off the bra and getting in to your pajamas. What if you can feel this way the whole day?
I never really thought about going to work without a bra. It was always just something you have to wear. Then I read a Buzzfeed article where one girl went braless for a whole workweek. On to Youtube I went and I saw a video of another woman going braless. I thought, why not me?
The Monday morning after that I was getting dressed all confidently without a bra, then I caught sight of my boobs and thought, you can totally see I am not wearing one. So I took off the shirt and sweater and sadly put the bra on. Thinking that I lost a battle somehow.
Next day I tried a different sweater shirt. You could totally not tell that I was braless. Hooray! I went my first day without a bra at work. I had however quickly run across the road and felt like I was totally flopping around. That was not so cool. Otherwise I felt like a total rebel. Stepping out from the norm.
I have not gone without a bra every day, some outfits just wont allow it. I have chosen the days with the most layers to do this. I think going in to summer I will get myself some sports bras or bralettes. One, summer = more sweat. I don’t want to feel sweaty under my boobs. Two, I will probably be wearing a thin shirt. Nobody want to see nipple stand at work. That’s just wrong.
My overall experience from my few braless days: I feel more confident with my boobs. I also think my posture has improved. No bra to help if you don’t stand up proper! No scratchy material bothering me THE WHOLE DAY (my prettier bras were just not nice to me).
National no bra day is coming up on 13 October. Try it out and see how free you feel. If you don’t like it, your trusty cups will always be waiting for you.
