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.

What is better, bra or no bra?

Not Wearing A Bra

While we all dream of being unconstricted, going without a bra is only an option for women with tiny boobs. For those with larger breasts, being braless can cause permanent damage to the cooper's ligament and give you neck and back aches.

Wearing A Bra

What are 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 use your body to move and groove.

The Truth

It's your body, and you know what works for you. It comes down to comfort and what makes you feel confident and fabulous in the clothes you love.

Variety Is The Spice

Whether you are anti or pro bras, one thing is for sure – A single type of bra is not your breasts' 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 for all life's doings.

Let's Talk 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 significant consideration, and feeling secure, poised, and positive can be closely linked to a great bra.

Active Life

Here's a massive stat: Approximately 75% of women wear the wrong sports bra. Being indoors most of the time, you've probably carved out dedicated time for moving. And when you do, you want to be rocking a bra that supports you while you're sporting. Our Triaction Seamfree Top and Moulded Sports Bra are all built to brave high activity levels. Keep your breast tissue buttressed while you get your exercise. It's important.

Maternity Fit

When you're expecting, one of your priorities is a properly fitting bra. At a time when your breasts may be tender, you need our specialised Cotton Candy Nursing Bra, which will carry you through the changes in your breasts from the first trimester to six months postnatal. And postpartum, the last thing you want is to be fiddling with uncomfortable cups and annoying clips. With our clip-down nursing bras, you can feed at need – wherever, whenever. For smooth, sleek support, our no-stitch Seamless Nursing Bra is all kinds of comfy.

Home Comfort

These are your favourites, the ones you hope are clean and ready to go whenever you open your draw. Why not start with neutrals, then throw in a couple of wow pieces? Try our selection of crop tops, smooth-cut t-shirt bras, and bralettes.
