not wearing a bra

To wear a bra or to not wear a bra – that’s the question. For women with bigger boobs, going braless may seem horrifying. And for others with small boobs, like myself, we could potentially go sans bra without anyone realizing.

Regardless of which side of the spectrum you’re on, it seems that society tells us we need to wear a bra. Without wearing a bra, you risk your nipples peeking through your shirt or it being visually apparent you’re braless. But, is wearing a bra necessary? Let’s walk through the benefits of wearing a bra, as well as the benefits of not wearing a bra.

Benefits of Wearing a Bra

The benefits of wearing a bra are centered around enhancing and supporting your bust. Here are some benefits of wearing a bra:

Feel supported

Wearing a bra will provide support for your breasts. All the bra’s parts – straps, band, cups, etc. – work together to distribute the weight of your breasts. And during exercise or high-impact situations, sports bras hold your boobs in place to reduce stress on the breast tissue. Your boobs move around less during strenuous activity, which alleviates post-activity breast soreness.

Enhance your bust

Bras come in various styles and can enhance the appearance of your bust. If you want some good cleavage, opt for a push-up bra. Or, if you want a lifted, rounded look, go for a demi cup bra.

Mood booster

Wearing a perfectly fitting, beautiful bra under your clothes is like your sexy little secret.

Benefits of Not Wearing a Bra

Whether you have small or big boobs, we all agree that taking off your bra is an amazing feeling. So, it’s no surprise some women prefer to braless! Let’s take a look at the benefits of not wearing a bra.

Save money

When you don’t wear bras, you don’t need to buy them. And, when bras cost $40, $60 or more, you can save quite a bit of money by going braless.

Enjoy the “bra free” feeling all day

If a bra is uncomfortable, it’s usually because it’s the wrong size. Regardless, some women prefer going “au naturel” and not feeling contained. Putting on and taking off your bra is just one less thing you have to worry about.

Confidence and comfort

An enhanced bust can boost your confidence, but freeing your boobs can too. When you go braless, you feel liberated, feminine and fierce. That’s quite the confidence boost cocktail, if you ask me.

So, back to our original question: To wear a bra or to not wear a bra. It comes down to personal preference, so do what makes you feel most confident! The benefits of not wearing a bra focus on comfort and liberation. And, though there may not be health-related benefits of wearing a bra, there is certainly instant gratification to be had by putting one on.

Which do you prefer: wearing a bra or going braless?
