    I hate going braless, hate it hate it. I WISH I was little teeny so I could go braless all the time, but at my size it's much too uncomfortable.

    I presume that had I not grown up wearing a bra that wouldn't be an issue, and I feel pretty certain that if I went braless long enough, it would become my new SOP - I know that bra wearing is a pretty unnatural state. (But I don't care.)

      Bras are optional for me. I prefer to go free bird, but definitely want that support when I'm running or jumping around.
      In honesty I walked around top-half naked during the first few weeks of my daughter's life (nursing, etc). I had 2 great excuses. It gets uncomfortably hot here in Utah, and I had a hungry baby. Good thing it was just me, hubby, baby, and my mommy in the house that first lil while.

        I chose to wear a bra most of the time because it makes me look more shapely and I like that. I'm 50 with A cups, just as perky as they were decades ago (despite 2 nursed babies ~20 yrs ago), and all my extra weight below my waist. If I don't wear a bra, I look much flatter.

          I didn't suggest anything about bras in relation to primal; rather as a fitness issue. I wouldn't not want my clothes either, under or outer. : )

            I'm new here but... and it feels weird to open up in such a way butttt: I'm braless the majority of the time, and that's cause I work from home. I have DD's. Here's the thing: I have cystic breasts, and when I don't wear one it's more comfortable. Make sense? If I gotta wear a bra, it's a smushin' sports bra. I hate underwire... I dunno if I'll EVER like it, but maybe when I'm thinner. I dunno.

            Just my 2 pennies.

              I let the gals loose the minute I get home. I wear one when out or doing work. I am a 40D, so I do like to corral the ladies when need be. I would say though, since I have been not wearing a bra at home, my gals are definitely not as droopy. And I have breastfed 2 babies.

                Wait what did you stop losing?

                  I think you are onto something! Like you, I can't wait to get my bra off as soon as I get home. In the evenings, and on the weekends I don't wear one at all even while running errands, unless I'm wearing a shirt where the bra is a must.

                  For what it's worth, I'm a 38C and for my age (almost 52), I have very little sagging. I can still go braless pretty well, unless the weather is a little "nipply" outside. I think wearing bras all the time makes your boobs dependent on the support. My hubby always marvels that I can go without a bra at my age.

                  And I'd bet my next paycheck that the men here LOVE this thread!

                      I have huge boobs, and I normally don't wear a bra. Do they sag? Well, yeah, but they don't look like Grizz's picture. They sag because they're large, and I've been pregnant twice, not cause I don't wear a bra. I stopped cause when I didn't wear one, my fibrocystic breasts healed.

                      I'm surprised at how staunch the thought is on wearing a bra.

                        Tangent: There's a story passed down through the women of my family that a greatxxxx-aunt, around the 1860s, died from an overly cinched corset. In those days women took exessive pride in tiny waists, and she had gone to visit a friend for a weekend, but had no maid with her to unlace/relace her corset, and as a result of 60+hours she died of "lung compression." Of course, she could have died from any number of things, but the curiosity is that the too tight corset was blamed. Perhaps it was meant as a cautionary tale against vanity, but there it is.

                          My girls like their home, thanks, CW or not. And you really, REALLY don't want to see what happens if I do a sprint/HIIT session without a bra ...
                          I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

                            Oh yeah, well my own skin on skin just ooks me out. Someone else's, not so much. I think it's that double sensory thing. And sleeping is generally just in my underwear. Around the house I wear a stretchy bra thing which basically keeps them from going crazy but doesn't constrict them much.

                              nude olympics! lol
                              I used to go braless whenever possible, undershirts in winter, just a shirt in summer. Then i went to grad school and thought i needed to be a professional woman and wear a bra, and lo and behold, my boobs hurt more pms. That link you gave zoe, is convincing me to go braless more. Depending on the shirt. I've found it harder to go braless in a dress, with the extra fabric movement, ahem, stimulating things. I need to buy more of the bralettes, when i tossed those i ended up in conventional bras more.
