    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!!

    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 !

    *snort*
    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.
