If they don’t flop, bounce or sag, then why should they be contained? A lady breaks it down on why she thinks the bra isn’t really necessary…
I can list a thousand reasons why I don’t wear bras. They are constricting, the underwire digs into my sides, the tag on the back is always scratching my skin, the feeling of wearing a bra on a hot day is like sticking your breasts inside a toaster oven, etc. The list goes on. But all the complaining aside, if I’m being actually honest here, the reason I stopped wearing bras is because my breasts are just really freaking tiny.
So after coming to terms with the fact I’ll never have more than 10 likes on IG with #NairobisSexisetGirls, I’ve actually embraced the small-boob lifestyle and it’s pretty awesome.
I stopped buying bras because there was really no reason for me to be wearing one. My breasts are so tiny that they don’t sag and they don’t jiggle when I walk. And I refuse to pay 3k for an elaborate push-up bra because everyone will obviously know that I am wearing a push-up bra.
When I am not wearing a bra, I am so much more comfortable in my clothes. I think every girl can attest to that amazing feeling you get when you take off your bra after a long day. You just want to run around, be free, and let them flap in the wind. That’s me all the time, but minus all the flapping.
Once I stopped wearing bras, I learned how to dress for my body type and I’ve grown confident in what I look like. I don’t need big breasts to feel sexy. Once I stopped obsessing over my cup size, I discovered that my body looks good in cutouts, deep V-necks, and backless tops, things bustier women can’t always get away with. Also, I have minimal wardrobe malfunctions such as pesky bra straps sticking out or bra colors showing through my shirt. And of course, I never have to worry about matching my bras and underwear together. If any of you ladies have your life put together enough to match your bras and panties, I applaud you.
I have no problem telling absolutely everyone I know when I am out that I am not wearing a bra. It happens so often that now my friends just reply, “Obviously.” And when I don’t tell people that I’m not wearing a bra, it’s like having a little fun secret that no one else around you knows. Hehe, I’m half naked and you don’t even know it, I’m thinking while everyone’s walking around carrying on with their day. But sometimes on the off chance that I do wear a bra, I’ll send out Snapchats to best friends letting them know and it becomes my own little version of Kim Kardashian’s “Break the Internet.” JENNY IS WEARING A BRA!!?? WHAT!?????!?!?!
So simply, I’ve stopped wearing a bra because I just don’t need to. People can think it is weird or inappropriate, but at the end of the day, I don’t need to dress them up, push them up, or tape them up because they are really small and that’s OK, because they are all mine. I decided to free myself from the horrible boob constriction we ladies are forced to face and now I am living a happy bra-less life.
