Bra vs free-boobs? That is the question. There are good points on either side of the debate, so let’s get abreast of some of these.
While we all dream of being unconstricted, going without a bra is only an option for women with very small boobs. For those with bigger boobs, being braless can cause permanent damage to the cooper’s ligament and give you aches in the neck and back.
The pros of wearing a well-fitted bra? Firstly, unsupported breasts are heavy and can negatively impact your posture, putting stress on your upper back. When they’re free n’ easy, braless boobs move around, especially when you’re active. Keeping them secure in a quality bra protects your breast tissue from tearing when you’re using your body to move and groove.
It’s your body, and you know what works for you. It comes down to comfort and what makes you feel confident and fab in the clothes you love. What makes you feel like you.
Variety is the Spice
Anti or pro bra, one thing’s for sure – A single type of bra is not your breast friend in every situation. Like you, your boobs experience different aspects of life: lounging around binge-watching your favourite series, walking with purpose as you get on with your day and exercising and moving with vigour. Your best bet is to own multiple bras, purpose-designed for every part of life. No matter your size or shape, there’s a bra out there for all life’s doings.
Talking Cup Size
If you’re a woman with a smaller cup size, you’ll know that choosing to either wear or bar the bra isn’t that big a deal. It’s more of a preference, and you may feel you can ditch the bra without feeling too uncomfortable. But for those with larger breasts, opting to go braless may not be an option. Keeping your girls in place is a big consideration, and feeling secure, poised and positive can be closely linked to a great bra. Again, it’s a you thing.
