5 Reasons Why Women Don't Need To Wear Bras

Even I don't feel like wearing them.


Brooke Cagle

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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
