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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
