Dare to go braless

I almost never wear a bra. I find them uncomfortable and oppressive. I believe that beauty is all about what makes you feel confident and comfortable (it’s all for you!). To me, bras are a (literal) booby trap, so I usually feel better braless. That’s just me; it’s every woman’s choice. What worries me is when women feel they have to wear a bra because that’s what’s been deemed “appropriate.” From a very young age, girls are told to be appropriate by wearing a bra, crossing their legs, shaving, and hiding their tampon when they go to the bathroom. Then paradoxically they’re encouraged to show off their boobs to attract the opposite sex. Growing up is hard, confusing, and insecurity ridden enough already. The last thing a girl needs is someone teaching her to be ashamed of her boobs, or any part of her body for that matter. (I’ve been there.) Why should we have to alter the natural state of our bodies to be deemed socially appropriate?

What’s “appropriate” is what YOU decide

It’s not about what society has deemed appropriate. We’re feminists. We’re equal. We choose. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Anna Frances Wood in FEMINIST shirt, "Braless" Brains over Blonde article

Bras or braless?

If you love bras, you do you girl. Lingerie, mom bras, push-up bras, sports bras, bralettes — pick your poison. If every day when you get home you whip off your bra and yell “FREEDOM!!!!” — you might ask yourself why you’re wearing that bra in the first place. There are plenty of options out there, from sticky bras to pasties to petals to the comfy True Bra. Bodysuits are my (minimal) support method of choice. Unless I’m working out, in which case I practically strap ‘em down with duct tape. Again, because that’s what makes me feel good. Bras or braless (or something else)? Regardless of which side you support (sorry… couldn’t resist), I have a challenge for us. Let’s change the way girls are taught to think about their boobs and bras as they grow up. Teach kids to wear whatever makes them feel best. We want them to love their bodies. I’m open with my own body evolution story in hopes that it will inspire someone else to love his or her body, and I hope others will do the same. #FlexYourFemale, ladies!
