5 Reasons Why Women Don't Need To Wear Bras

5 Reasons Why Women Don't Need To Wear Bras

Even I don't feel like wearing them.


Ladies, I know that most of you CANNOT stand wearing bras for 12+ hours a day. We all have different boob sizes and no matter what kind of bra you wear, we always want to come home and take it off! Here are 5 reasons why women don't need to wear bras:

1. Wearing a bra causes back pain

According to The Health Orange, studies show that wearing a bra can contribute to back pain as it shifts weight to the shoulders and places a great amount of stress on the pectoral girdle muscles. For an experiment, they had participants. Participants the experiment were told to remain braless for 2 weeks to see if it affected their back pain. Participants reported that staying braless significantly reduced or even eliminated their back pain and 79% of them decided to go braless on a permanent basis. And honestly, I feel like they have made the right decision.

2. You can breathe without one!

It's such a relief when we take off our bras! Our boobs are free from the pads and our shoulders are free from the straps! It's one of the best feelings ever!

3. Bras are SUPER expensive

Have you ever walked into Victoria's Secret and asked yourself why a single bra costs $44.50!? It's crazy how expensive most bras are! I'm sure that there are other stores to get them cheaper but to this day, I can't help but to wonder why Victoria's Secret is so pricey.

4. Bras get uncomfortable after a while

After a long day of working, going to school or doing other daily things, we would get tired of wearing our bras for a maximum of hours as it somehow gets uncomfortable after a while. Bras may look cute and pretty but we sure can't wait to take them off when our day is done.

5. By not wearing a bra, you will be happy with your body more

Everyone needs to learn to love their body and be happy with it! No matter what boob size you are, no one should feel ashamed of them!

If a woman is out in public without a bra on, she is doing so because she wants to feel comfortable and she isn't trying to impress anyone. I'm sure that most adults know what boobs look like and people shouldn't put others to shame about them. If you want to wear a bra, that's fine! If not, that should be fine too! All I know is that a woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin and be happy with who she is.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
