  • (Not) Wearing a Bra

    Hey girls and boys maybe
    What do you think of wearing a bra?
    I'm currently 18 years old and have been "braless" for most of the time since I began to have breasts While it surely isn't 'primal' to wear a bra, I wonder if there are some real pros of wearing it. Is there a correlation between sagging and (not) wearing a bra? I reaallyy feel way more comfortable without it.
    What do you think?

    I think any girl 18 or over should totally decide for herself whether or not to wear a bra, and update everyone on her progress on her journey, with pictures as necessary.

      Can Wearing Your Bra Cause Cancer?

      Answer seems to be, potentially, yes. But the jury is still out there on the specifics and whether the increase is large enough to worry about. Plus, there are alternatives that may be safer than traditional models that may work just as well depending on your needs.

      This link has lots of information.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        Hmmm. Good question! I think boobs are similar to balls and if I were a dude id be a boxer wearer not a budgie-smuggler wearer.

        Meaning they shouldn't be squashed, compressed, heated up, compacted, pressed against the body etc etc.
        Its easier for a dude to look after that though.

        I hate wearing synthetic bras for starters. Cotton breathes, less heat- up.
        I mainly wear a shelf tank (is that what theyre called?) While at home but a bra if I go out. Im mainly at home with my son.

        Oh the days are gone where I could go braless in a tight singlet! Lol. Ill never be the same again now after my baby! my body is ruined! *sobs*

          There was some 40-yr long study done in France, I think, about wearing not wearing bras for long term. I think the results were that it's better to be braless. I would be interested in seeing what the success of going braless compared to size of breast would be though. I am fairly small chested, 34A or 32B, so it's easy/comfortable for me to go without a bra almost every day.

            There is too much texture there for me not to go without a bra plus the jiggling is an unwanted distraction for others. If my boobs were smaller and smoother for sure I'd never wear a bra.

                Well mine are certainly small but I like their shape lol that's why I have no probs being braless. And I've noticed that braless girls tend to have less saggy boobs later in life.. Maybe it's similar to feet and shoes and how arch supports often actually weaken your foot, don't help flat feet much and being barefoot is the way to go...

                  Yes there was some French research that concluded going braless is good for prevention of sagging or whatever, but honestly if you LIFT WEIGHTS that would prevent sag better than any bra vs. no bra effect.

                  I know bras can cause cancer (at least the lined ones with foam...this is why one of my friends has a whole line of unlined bras). However, I NEED them if I'm going out in public. Clothes look weird without bras when I'm like...a D/DD (depending on brand). I can't even deal with the unlined bras because they just look weird under clothes. As for cancer...a LOT of things cause cancer and I have to pick and choose what risks I'm willing to take and what I'm not. Bras? I have to wear them to work/school. There's no way around it. If you're worried about cancer, just get unlined bras (i.e. without any foam/gel support...it's the free radicals from these components that tend to cause cancer).

                  I don't wear a bra around the apartment though.

                  TL;DR... if you don't want to and don't need to wear a bra, that's cool...if you do...that's also cool.

                    No way I could get a way braless. Maybe before children, but a D/DD bobbing around would have drawn attention.

                    After having 4 babies...no way. No stretch in this body from genetics. Someday I hope to get a reduction/lift and then if I can braless would be a possibility.

                    LUCKY to those who can get away with it.

                      Bra-less, all the way, baby! And, if you just can't, then make sure it's NOT an under-wire. Or, at least go bra-less when your at home or as much as possible.

                      IMO, a bra blocks the fluid flow in the lymph nodes (your immune system).

                      Take it from a breast CA survivor, it could make a difference. I go bra-less now only because I don't need to wear one due to implants.

                        I read years ago that it's better to go without and that ultimately less sagging occurs as a result of the ligaments not atrophying. I'm small (34B at MOST). I wait until the last possible moment when getting dressed in the morning to put that contraption on, and it's one of the first things I take off once I'm home. Days off at home = braless. It just feels better, even though I don't have much up there. (As much as I wish I were 'busty,' I never will be, and every woman I've spoken to who is naturally busty, not surgically augmented, SWEARS she'd rather be smaller. Go figure.) Bottom line: if you can go braless, do it. I don't believe there's anything wrong with it, nor do I believe you'll sag quicker/younger.

                          This again.

                          If you are small and don't need one, feel free not to wear one.

                          If you are large or saggy enough to fail the pencil test, wear a bra. The style is up to you. I prefer my 36/38 F/G cups locked & loaded when I'm out, but for around home, a tank with a shelf bra is fine. Bra-less is not an option.

                          As for the cancer theory...maybe its not the underwire bras causing cancer. Maybe women with the size or breast tissue type that warrants an underwire bra are predisposed, and would have gotten cancer whether they wore a bra or not.

                            There have been lots of studies on both women AND men about the effects of wearing metal near your body and it's not good. In the short-term metals have been simply placed NEAR the skin to have verifiable and therapeutically relevant effects. Longer-term application of metals near the skin have shown to have adverse effects however, through OVERstimulation effects.

                            From the link I posted:

                            In his 1975 article, Chinese Lessons For Modern Chiropractors, Dr. George Goodheart – known as “the father of Applied Kinesiology” -- explained what he calls the "Antenna Effect." Essentially, he discovered that by taping a small metal ball over an acupuncture point, you could achieve longer-term stimulation to that point in question. This discovery led to what are now known as AcuAids -- small magnetic patches that are used by thousands of doctors across the world.

                            However, just like a small metal ball, any metal constantly applied to any given energy channel or point on your body can have the same stimulating effect.

                            As described by John D. Andre, D.C., N.D.[4], below your breasts are two important neuro-lymphatic reflex points. The one below your right breast corresponds to your liver and gallbladder. The one below your left breast goes to your stomach.

                            He goes on to say:

                            “These reflexes, like all acupuncture points, follow the Law of Stimulation. In the beginning of stimulating a point, it is stimulated - often causing an increase in associated function. Later on, this continued stimulation causes sedation of that point and a subsequent decrease in its associated function. It's a mechanical thing.

                            If a woman keeps the metal underwires on top of those reflex points, over time that WILL mess up the functioning of the associated circuits: Liver, gallbladder, and stomach.”
                            In my opinion, it's not the fact that they're "underwire" bras that are as much them problem as the fact that these "underwires" are usually made of metal. If you want an underwire, go for it! Just make sure yours is plastic or some other non-metallic substance.
                            "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                              When were bras invented?

                              What did busty ladies do before then?
