Non-Event of the Fortnight

To burn or not to burn...

I haven’t worn a bra in two weeks. The universe didn’t end! Huzzah.



  1. What do you have against bras? I don’t understand, sorry…

  2. Nothing to be sorry for. I just don’t find bras comfortable and I don’t need to wear them. They’re touted as esential for every woman when they’re really not.

    Welcome Eleanor 🙂

  3. Ugh, I hate bras. I can’t even remember the last time I wore one. I don’t think I’ve owned one for years.

    I say, “Go hairy bralessness!!!!”

  4. I have worn a bra maybe half a dozen times since 1996. They are completely unnecessary and uncomfortable. I think because men have sexualized breasts, we are told we must restrain them lest the menfolk go wild with sexual passion.

    My breasts are free range, thank you. I’m sick of men defining my life for me. And I’m sick of men not taking responsibility for their sexuality. If they sexualize breasts, that’s their problem. It’s not therefore my responsibility to keep them confined and contained so that men aren’t aroused.

  5. does that not hurt when you dance/run/jump up and down excitedly. perhaps it is a curse of a large chest….

    I gave up everything but sports bras about 6 months ago. I don’t push my cleavage around for anyone. (in fact it is second to the ace bandage in minimising them) and I get to be bouncy! I’m a very bouncy person.

  6. I wish I could go bra-less…

  7. It doesn’t hurt when I run, but I do bounce (a lot).

    One of the most annoying things about bras is the way they’re pornified.

  8. New reader here–love your blog! Good on you for not wearing an item just because people expect you to!

    I myself love to wear a bra (because it’s more comfortable for me–it really hurts if my breasts are moving around, plus I’m fairly active so they do get a lot of bouncing during the day!), but dangit it’s hard to find a non-silicone-padded/non-padded bra. My breasts are big enough as they are, thank you very much!

    So basically, I wear most of the time comfy sports bras and if I can’t wear them, then the rare ones that come without padding or underwire 🙂

  9. I like going bra-less as much as the next perky early-twenties chick, but I couldn’t live with-out bras. I have to wear two sports bras AND an active-wear shelf tank in order to keep my titties under control during martial arts. During physical activity your breast ligaments can stretch as far as three inches and stress to the ligaments can cause tearing — I’m sure anybody who ever went to the gym with-out a proper sports bra can sympathize with me when I say that floppy boobs lead to PAINFUL boobs later that day. Long-term stress to the breast ligaments can contribute to droopy boobies later in life. Outside of the gym, however, I see nothing wrong with going bra-less in a fantastic tank-top.

    If your major complaint is that bras are uncomfortable, I’d suggest you get fitted. For most of the summer I couldn’t wear bras because mine gaped in some areas and strangled me in others. Turns out I was wearing a waist band two sizes too large and a cup size two sizes too small. The right size bra can make you feel WONDERFUL! They’re also helpful if you have large breasts like mine — they really do help support the girls and prevent lower back pain. ❤

  10. I wear bras for strenous sport now, but I go braless for everyday life.
