[QUOTE=eKatherine;1151187]Sports bras are great. They need to come up with sexier styling, with lace and pretty fabrics and cut a little lower, but with sports bra type support.[/QUOTE]Victoria's Secret has a whole line of really pretty tops with shelf bras built in. I usually wear those. I wear a solid sports bra for running sprints but otherwise I like my boobs wild and free. I can see if your girls are on the large side that would be uncomfortable. Mine are only B sized.
[QUOTE=YogaBare;1151194]It's interesting, but the first week of "not wearing" was really uncomfortable. I thought I could feel the weight of gravity pulling at me. Then, suddenly, the feeling changed. It's like my breasts are now actually part of my body, instead of these things I'm trying to compartmentalise.[/QUOTE]

Hmmmm I wonder if I can get away with that. Whenever I don't wear a bra, I just feel these things hanging down and dragging on my chest. I tried for several days not to wear a bra, but haven't lasted a week before. Wonder if that will work on mine? 32/34 C/D here.
bahahahahahahahaha DERP! You crack me up!
I hardly ever wear a bra, and I feel that it's more comfortable that way. I only make sure to strap em in if I'm exercising. I used to wear them all the time growing up, but when I stopped caring so much about being fashionable and spending money on lots of clothes, I started just wearing the necessities. A dress and sandals is cheap and cute, takes the least effort and sometimes looks better than someone who took 2 hours to put everything together. Overall it's one less thing to worry about.
I noticed today, I was walking outside and it was raining, but since I had on an old dress and no makeup, I really didn't care! Lots of other made up girls were throwing fits, haha.
As for the shape... I recently gained significant weight, back to my original healthy size, and they do feel a bit heavier, but not saggy. I noticed that my recent habit of dry body brushing has made them much firmer, also! So until I feel like they're going to sag, or I absolutely neeeeeed to wear a bra all the time for some reason, I'm gonna let them stay free for the most part.
Bras dont fit me properly: I'm a 32B (been measured etc.) but the bras are always too small in the underwire, and too big in the cup. For the last two weeks I haven't bothered wearing a bra. At first it felt weird, but now I definitely feel like my breasts are fuller and more umm... buoyant?! I wonder if wearing bras restricts the natural shape...?
You're wearing the wrong bra.
It doesn't matter what you've 'been measured' at...every brand and style fits differently. I can wear anything from a 34G/H to a 38F/G. [I]I know what size I am in certain brands/styles[/I] but I couldn't buy based on the size on the tag alone.

I prefer the term "lock and load"
Get a sport kilt!
Sigh, my paleolithic man (well, more neolithic right now) would look SO awesome in a kilt and has the ancestry to wear it. But, since we ride our Harleys 99% of the time it's a no go. He has words for stupid people who ride bikes barefoot and in shorts (Roadrash is one of them!). Our son wants a kilt so bad it is killing him. I said I would make him one, but he can't wear it on the bike or to school. His social problems (artistic, gifted, wacko warrior dreamer kid with long hair and grey haired biker hippie parents) are too extreme now. I am proud that he has the cojones to be himself, but...
On the bra issue, in the 70s i never wore a bra despite being pretty developed and doing a lot of exercise. So, they SAG. As a 32 DD I could get away with it. When I gained weight I couldn't. I go braless around the house because they need AIR and at DD size most bras stink. I have found some less structured bras that support without giving you that attractive "UNIBOOB" or innertube look that comes from big boobs and a typical sports bra. I haven't been primal for long, but I am noticing that even in my 50s that they are firming up again. A function of hormones, decent nutrition, and weight loss? Neolithic man insists he likes them best bare, saggy or not, though I think I could sling one over my shoulder African Nat. Geographic picture style and probably tuck a kid under the other one. LOL. Mean old bikers like chicks with hairy underarms too, whatever that's worth.
[QUOTE=Zach;1151052]Bras suck, burn em!
Although, I believe that bras (especially underwire ones) block the flow of fluid through the lymph nodes.
I've had a double mastectomy and really haven't been able to comfortably wear a bra since.
I love the freedom and the feeling. Oh, and I'll be perky even when I'm older :)
Girls have it so easy. They can sit however they want and never get their stuff twisted up. Whine all you want about your shoulder pain and mudflaps, nuts are far more disadvantageous. When planning to move, sit, or climb anything, the first thought is always "will this hurt my nuts?". We live every moment of every day in fear of this pain. Or at least, it's always a threat to be aware of. Throw a hammer at a guy and he's bound to try to block the hammer with one arm, and the other arm will go over THAT area, almost every time.
i'll pity your nuts when you pity my periods :p
