Letting the Girls Loose… Top Tips for Going Braless (or not)

**BLOG POST WARNING** this post has images of a disturbing nature.

Going braless. Some women love it and others don’t. There are women out there who have never worn a bra in their life, and other’s that just think it’s totally unacceptable. Every woman, no matter what size she is, will come home after a long day, take her bra off and siiigghhhh. So we clearly all enjoy the feeling of being free…

Here are our Top tips for going braless.

1. If you are over the cup size of D, it’s just a NO (well, just in public.) Unfortunately, the larger the breast, the more gravity kicks in. As women we have responsibilities to keep the girls looking perky at all times!

2. The only exception to rule 1 (again depending on your size) – take advantage of shelf tops. These are the tops that have built in support. The elastic at the bottom is what gives you the extra support and keeps the girls in check without wearing a bra!

3. Take a jacket. If it gets a bit nippy, it won’t be just you that sees it. Or alternatively buy nipple covers, to avoid any embarrassing situations.

3. Sagging. There is no concrete evidence that suggests not wearing a bra increases sagging. However, it is a known fact that your breast ligaments slowly break down when doing exercise (or anything that makes the girls jiggle) which causes the breast to sag over time. So going braless, every day will have an effect in the long run.

4. Choose your outfit well. If you are small busted AA-B, then consider strapless tops/dress or even halterknecks. Never wear a baggy top, because as soon as you drop something and go to pick it up, anyone in eye distance will get a cheeky thrill!

5. Choose your timings to go braless. Going braless to meetings, professional events, first dates, or meeting the parents…it’s just not advised. We live in a very critical society and looks say everything about a first impression or how people view you. So make sure you are well supported!

6. It is a known fact that if a man knows you have gone braless (and we still agree that this is for C cups and below) it will drive him wild. So, going braless could be a special treat for a loved one (and super comfortable for you!)

7. Wear a big sweatshirt, and no-one will ever know you have gone braless (so this goes for larger breasted women too!)

8. It is not all fun & giggles going braless. There are situations such as running up (or down) stairs at a more than walking speed…ooouuccchhh.

9. Breasts come in different shapes and sizes so you are the only one to decide. Be comfortable, and remember going braless is different for everyone

10. Finally,  if your not brave enough to go braless, wear cute little lace bralettes like Only Hearts Women’s Stretch Lace Bralette, feels like you’re not wearing a bra and is very much this season!

    I totally disagree with rule 1! I’m a G cup, I’ve had a child, I’m almost 30 and my breasts are as perky as they were when I was a teenager (they started developing when I was just 7). Not everyone with big breasts have saggy breasts, and not all small breasts are perky. I’ve seen 20 year olds with B cups down to their belly buttons!

      Angel, more power to you! Only a DD here, but much more comfortable to go without a bra than to wear the crazy asphyxiating harness they make for those of us larger than a 36C.
      I wish we weren’t such a judgmental and puritanical society that felt that breasts are something to hide away and be ashamed of.

        Hey CJ,

        Thank you so much for your comments :) You know what, at the end of the day, it is whatever you feel comfortable with. If you want to let loose, then you go girl! The society we live in does tell us to keep your breasts perky and up, but this is one of so many pressures for women in the modern day!

        We just want to make as many women happy as possible, by giving some facts we found! If you want pretty, supportive, sexy, sport, you name it, kind of bra, then brayola will have it for you!

        Lots of love

      Agreed, but for a dif reason. We do not have a “social responsibility”to “keep the girls looking perky” Utter bull.

    NONE of the photos posted were of disturbing nature. They are pictures of women. There is nothing disturbing about the female form, with or without a bra.

    In what way should a woman be responsible for making her breasts “perky” at all times? Should she never be without a bra? For whom are her breasts supposed to be perky?

    Why are bras so damned uncomfortable? Because they’re unnatural to our bodies and unhealthy for our breasts. Why do so many women suffer from back, neck and shoulder pain? Could it possibly be because they are confined to a bra? Why is it that it is only proper to show oneself in public with the aid of unnecessary “support?”

    There is nothing shameful about being yourself, as you are naturally, no matter your size. Be comfortable. Life is too short to be bound by an ill-fitting garment that serves no natural purpose.

        Oh shut up, Fiona!! How can you pretend to agree with her and be all cheery after all the crap she said? You did not even ADDRESS anything she mentioned. And she is right. Your post is sexist and implies that women should be ashamed of their bodies. You body shame large-chested women and force society’s beliefs in what is “acceptable” on other women. It disgusts me

    You said, and I quote:
    “However, it is a known fact that your breast ligaments slowly break down when doing exercise (or anything that makes the girls jiggle) which causes the breast to sag over time. So going braless, every day will have an effect in the long run.”
    But research suggests the opposite.
    “The researchers involved in the study suggested that bras — which Rouillon now calls “a false necessity”— discourage the growth of supporting breast tissue, leaving the breasts to sag more quickly.”
    (this is part of an article found at livescience dot com – enter “Bras Make Breasts Sag, Study Suggests” in the search box)
    Not to mention bras, especially underwire bras, are horrible for the lymphatic system.
    Why do we have to have boobs up to our chin anyway?
    I personally did not enjoy wearing a bra, and so I did not, for the first 25 years of my life. It was a boss who said I needed to at work, and I did for the next 11 years. But I am back in that place where unless I am working, I do not see the need to. And I am a DD. The girls may not be perky, but they are much more comfortable when allowed to be free. And they don’t look half bad.
    I think it is sad when girls are telling other girls that they cannot go bra-free because “we have responsibilities to keep the girls looking perky at all times!” I would think the only reasons to wear a bra are for modesty (certain clothing and styles will show all if there is no bra) and personal preference (you simply cannot imagine not wearing a bra). And the modesty part need not be an everyday thing. If you have on a decent supportive camisole, there may be no need for a bra.
    But again, to each her own.
    Just don’t let the girls reading your blog be shamed into wearing a bra (because bralettes don’t come in sizes above 36C) just because you make false claims to causing sagging or needing to be perky.

    This is my fifth week to go brafree and it is so much more comfortable. I am a 44D and I believe after doing research that it helps your ligaments to leave off the bra. When you walk and they jiggle it’s like getting a massage. If my nipples show, I have decided that’s okay because everyone has nipples. I don’t pan to wear a bra again and that is my decision.
