Going braless: benefits and beginner advice

Benefits: comfort - Even the best-fitting bra tends to get uncomfortable after a long day. The underwires are a nightmare, and you’re bound to have the straps firmly indented into your skin.

Benefits: comfort - In the long term, many women report that once they get used to going braless they have a greater sense of freedom and comfort with their bodies.

Benefits: better circulation - Most women know the constricting sensation of wearing a bra for hours. This constriction can impede blood circulation to the chest and back, which can lead to aching back muscles.

Benefits: better sleep - If you’re one of those people who wears a bra in bed, you’re bound to get a better night’s sleep once you release yourself from that burden!

Benefits: less boob sweat! - Anywhere skin touches skin on your body is going to be a sweat factory.

Benefits: skin health - As bras absorb sweat and dirt from the skin, they can cause skin irritation and even acne. Clogged pores in that area are no joke!

Benefits: kill the taboo - Breasts aren’t inherently sexual. Their main function is to produce milk for breastfeeding. People are not “hardwired” to stare at women’s boobs.

Myths: going braless causes sagging - Bras don’t prevent the natural changes that occur with age, despite what many disreputable online articles would have you believe!
