How To Get Away With Not Wearing A Bra
Have you ever had one of those days when you just didn’t want to wear a bra? Where you were fully prepared to breakup with your bras and deliver the best breakup speech of all time? Maybe you’re ready to free your boobs from boob jail (they’re served a long enough sentence). Or maybe you’re going on a trip and you’re concerned your bra is going to set off the metal detector (we’ve all been there). Whether you’re looking to go braless for a day (your boobs deserve a break) or you’re ready to swear off bras for the rest of your life (remember that breakup speech?), here is how to get away with not wearing bra:
1. Cover your nipples (or don’t).

If you don’t want your nipples to show, try adhesive nipple covers or even pasties (if you’re bold). There are many options for stylishly concealing your nipples.
2. Fashion tape is your new best friend.
Wearing a dress or top with a tricky neckline? Fashion tape can help keep everything in place on the days you go braless. No nip slips!
3. Try a bralette.
There are so many cute bralettes out there that provide decent to excellent support (like the Molly Triangle Bra from Affinitas in gorgeous teal). Best of all, you don’t have to hide them because they’re meant to be shown!
4. Rock a bodysuit.

Bodysuits can provide an extra layer of coverage in place of a bra. They’re quick and easy and can be worn year round.
5. Wear a top with built in cups.
You might not get the best support from a top with built in cups, but they do create more of a rounded look and give the illusion that you’re wearing a bra.
6. Choose a dress with some structure up top.
Dresses and tops with embroidery, lace, and bold patterns will take the attention away from your boobs. For the most supportive fit, look for dresses with seams below the bust that are fitted throughout the top. Loose fitting dresses are more comfortable, but won’t be as supportive for those of us who are larger busted.
7. Add layers.
Wearing layers can help with hiding the fact that you’re braless. Layering will also keep you warm and comfy when the temperatures drop.
8. Wear a pretty camisole.

Camisoles are perfect on their own or layered with a slouchy sweater. If you’re going braless in the summer, look for paper thin camisoles in light, breathable fabrics or opt for structured camisoles that fit more like bustiers.
9. State the obvious.
A braless option for those of us who are feeling daring and carefree. Make everyone wonder if you’re actually braless!
10. Embrace it.

Rock those shoulder dresses and backless tops (finally!) Embrace the braless look and don’t worry if your nipples show. If someone stares at you, stare back! If you’re not feeling as bold, ignore them. You don’t need to apologize for choosing to go braless – it’s your choice, not theirs!
What’s the #1 secret to pulling off the braless look?
Confidence. If you present yourself with confidence, you can pull off pretty much anything. Just remember: Choosing to not wear a bra is nothing to be ashamed about. While society sometimes dictates otherwise, no one is forcing us to wear a bra every day. We have so many other choices that don’t involve padding and underwire. Go out and own it!
