Whyy Girls Should Go Braless

Because bras are cutting into my bottom line and so much more.

Whyy Girls Should Go Braless

Ever since we are young, girls have been brainwashed to think that wearing a bra is not only normal, but healthy and necessary to have a fulfilled happy life. Girls have also been taught that not wearing a bra is somehow "whore-ish" or "wrong". They are taught that somehow, by going bra-less, girls become some kind of 70's oddity or 80's feminist or 50's slutty biker-chick. The only modern time decade in which not wearing a bra, was not only acceptable but encouraged was the bum-chic era of the 90's. It wasn't until the 20-teens that going bra-less become so encouraged that bra-burning is an actual thing and nip-stickers have no longer become a statement, but to an extent, a social norm- or at the very least, nothing too peculiar.

Still, there are some issues tied with the bra-burning ideal, many of which are just misconceptions. However, going bra-less isn't just for celebrities or girls with "perky ta-ta's". Going bra-less has actual physical benefits for females.

Here are 5 reasons why you should let your girls hang free and unrestricted:

1. Bras have no advantage medically or otherwise.

In a medical study done in France, it has shown that wearing a bra actually sags your breasts rather than keeping them up

2. Bras don't allow the breast to develop natural elasticity

Because the bra is holding your breasts up, the elasticity that would develop with time and gravity that keep your breasts from sagging doesn't build up, leading to premature sagging.

3. Going Bra-less makes your nipples perkier.

The same study that showed that bras create sagging rather than helping with its form, shows that women who went bra-less showed a 0.3 inch rise in nipple placement, so your breasts and nipples become "perky"/ standing on their own. Your nipples are happy and thanking you profusely.

4. It is very rare to find a perfect fitting bra

Let's face the facts, unless you're a mannequin or have the market body size, it is very hard to find a perfect bra. As so many people have told you, a wrong fitting bra is bad news. Going bra-less, or even wireless, is a better and safer choice.

5. Bras suck

It is literally wire-cover clothe wrapping itself around your breasts and back, shoving your breasts to unnatural highs, restricting your breathing and airflow. And they are the bane of every girl's existence. What's a better feeling, after all, than flinging the contraption out of your shirt and into the hamper?

Chocolate, Netflix, pizza and sleeping in- but that's besides the point. The point is, other than a social "requirement", there is no good reason to wear a bra. They are more trouble than they're worth. If you are one of the many women who can't not wear a bra because of size or what-have-you, try sports bras or wireless bras and bralettes. At the very least, the wire can go- for good.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
