      I prefer to go bra-less. I will wear on at work and when Im out of the house but as soon as I get home the bra comes off and the girls go free. Im a 36C and would never workout without a bra but if Im lounging at home there is no need for me to be wearing one.

        even if you don't, gravity ruins everything! especially with a lot of weight loss, or rapid weight loss. mine were toast at age 22. if i don't wear one, I look like I'm 86. I deal with it, but I've been conditioned to think that's not the way they should look at my age, so I wear one.

          I agree 100% Mine arent as pretty as they could be because of big weight loss. Ive found silly amounts of push ups have helped pretty them up a bit. My arms are pretty saggy as well courtesy of rapid weight loss. OH well I would rather the sag than the extra weight!!

            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

              Thank you. Three children and 6 years of BF'ing later I don't mind that my girls are smallish, I'd just like them to be a few inches North where the originated. No migrating!

                Uhhh if I didn't wear a bra I'm pretty sure my house would be covered in breastmilk.

                Anyways, I need to wear some sort of support for my lovely ladies in addition to keeping the THO at bay. I can sometimes get away with a tight tank but have scared a few men when my lovely nursing nipples, errr... pointed at them (sorry random guys in Walgreens the other day.) Haha!

I certainly see that for comfort wearing a bra is the way to go, but if it does weaken the chest muscles, then women should be more actively encouraged to work out those muscles to prevent what I suspect is pretty common sagging with age--or so I heard a plastic surgeon say on Dr.Radio. That's what got me wondering in the first place.
                  Wide hand placement in line with shoulders will work the chest muscles fabulously and help slow down the progression!

                  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.


                  I'm with you, mine comes off as soon as I get home. I tend to wear tanks that have the built in shelf bra just because I'm not a big fan of sweaty underboobage which happens with boobs above a certain size.

                  I'm laughing because this topic makes me think of sooooo many things pertaining to boobage.
                  No, bras aren't primal, but neither is shaving my pits and legs and other types of "scaping" that men seem
                  intensely pleased with. I've yet to date a man who thought the hairy cavewoman leg/pits look was sexy.
                  On the same vein, bathing wasn't exactly primal and I'm mucho happy that this is a cultural norm for us now !

                  PS
                  Unwrapping the present (especially if wrapped in a most attractive way) is always much more fun than it just being handed to you !

                    that's exactly what i was thinking, too. and i HATE bralets. they give me a headache. i think a well-made, properly fitting bra isn't as bad as some may think. my breasts still get a great deal of movement, and none of the tissue is constricted.

                      Me too. There's very few clothes that I wear (save for the baggy sweatshirts I occasionally throw on) that don't look/fit better with a bra. I have a C cup and can be comfortable without a bra when lounging around in my jammies or robe, but as soon as I put clothes on, I also put on a bra. I also feel more comfortable with a bra on. Took me a long time to find a style that I liked - for a long time I avoided underwires because I thought they'd be less comfortable (a bias I learned from my mom, who's not a fan of underwires, and since she was my first "advisor" I internalized her negativity). Finally tried them and realized a well-fitting underwire beats a non-underwire any day.

                      Plus, my nipples are total weathervanes. Going braless would likely create inappropriate situations more often than not.

                      I'm fortunate that my boobs are small enough that tanks with built-in bras can give me enough support, and a swimsuit with a shelf bra is my preferred style.

                        M'kay. But you need to agree to (1) wear some kind of protective gear, and (2) sign a waiver absolving me of any responsibility in case I inadvertently put one of your eyes out.

                          To answer the question: no. I don't think they are really needed. In my personal experience, I have never felt the need for them, and I don't look down upon (maybe just slightly down) upon anyone who doesn't wear them either.

                            Well it's looking like if I continue on with this Primal thing I may need a bra even less then I do now. LOL It's been 2 weeks and I just took my measurements. The scale says very little weight loss but the measuring tape and pants say otherwise. About 2 inches from my hips, almost an inch off my bicep (will be nice to see that underarm flab disappear) and 1 inch off my chest. Pooh on the chest. Why can't it come off my thighs first? Leave the girls alone. LOL Anyways before I got chunky my size was smaller so I guess it's inevitable.... (sigh)

                              I don't care if bras are primal or not - well DUH they aren't, but very few clothes are - bras are comfy, and when you're a 36F and naturally droopy, there are NO clothes that are going to fit and look halfway decent if you don't wear one.

                              Plastic surgery isn't primal either, but once I'm sure I'm done having kids, I'm going to get them shrunk up a bit. I always thought that "Primal" was all about taking the beneficial parts of modern life (like medical advances and indoor plumbing) and combining that with diet, exercise and lifestyle choices that enhance health rather than detracting from it. I'm sure the cave ladies got along nicely with their saggies, and I see a lot of topless African hunter-gatherers on documentaries with boobs like mine - but I don't live in a climate where topless is a viable option, most of the time (it is legal though) and braless under clothing just isn't comfortable.

                                Great way to sum up my feelings on the entire situ! Not only that, but there are stages in your life when it's just plain a necessity to wear a bra. I nursed both my kids, and I can remember what happened if I didn't have nursing pads in place, which required a bra. *Drip, drip, drip* Maybe because I've got such tiny boobs (32B) and I actually produced so much milk that I pumped an extra 20 ounces a day for an entire year that I donated, but I was, erm, quite leaky for about year after each child was born.

                                After going 4 straight years in a bra 24/7 (between pregnancy and childbirth--from 2004 to 2008), I now psychologically need a bra 24/7, usually a sports bra. I'm 40, and my 'girls' are pretty firm for my age, despite breastfeeding each kid for about 14 months. I'm not sure that bras do anything to prevent or cause sagging. I think it's got to be a personal choice on whether you wear one, and it'll also depend on where you are. I can't imagine not wearing a bra to the office. The air conditioning is cold there!
