I have been bra free for about 6 months now and my boobs have gotten a lot more shapely. Some people think I'm weird but I don't want to wear a bra it's too restricting and it looks weird when you're wearing a a backless shirt.

Anyway I just wanted to see if I was the only one to do this.

I'm a D cup so I feel like I'd look vulgar if I went totally braless. However I rarely wear a real bra anymore, I always wear bralettes. They still give me a good amount of support but don't put so much strain on my back and don't hurt my ribs.

In a rabbit-fear I may hurl myself under the wheels of the car because the lights terrify me, and under the dark blind death of wheels I will be safe. I am very tired, very banal, very confused. I do not know who I am tonight. I wanted to walk until I dropped and not complete the inevitable circle of coming home

I started with those then I was like I'm just not going to wear one. Some times I think it looks disgusting and I think I look like an orangoutang but when ppl look at me funny (normally I just get men looking/drooling) I act French maybe say something in a French accent then it's more socially expectable.

Yep! I heard it'd make my breasts perkier and my nipples higher up- and it totally has! ^w^ Been braless for a while now, I love it! I feel all free and feministic and sexy.

 

I have pretty large breasts, (C's or maybe D's- idk haven't measured in a while but my old C bras are tight). The most I wear is a sports bra when exercising or an undershirt to lessen the bounce/hide excited nipples. I also do exercises to strengthen my pecs.

 

My breast look much better naked now, and they're firmer. The only thing I don't like about going braless is that they seem low on my torso, where they naturally hang, compared to everyone else who wears a bra. I'll have my natural, lower hanging breasts and they'll have their spherical, pushed up boobs. But I like being braless too much to start wearing one again, just because of that. The most I hope for is that my breasts will shrink a bit with my weightloss, but if they don't, I'm fine with that too. I just love my breasts <3

Just remember when they are old the bra wearers they're boobs will sag x2 as much because they're muscles aren't toned to carry the weight of a famine body ;)

I did it once in public. But I wore two shirts and a sweat jacket over. 
 

We had to run some erins for the day and we went to Walmart. It's WALMART so I didn't feel so gross. But My back felt free. But when I'd run it'd hurt. Sometimes I do it around the house if I don't have any clean ones.

I have AA's and hate the shape of them now, so I'd be afraid what would happen to their shape if I did go braless. :(

I only wear sports bras these days thoguh, because fuck underwire.

In my 40's. Haven't worn bra since I was a tween (except exercise bra) I'd say I'm prob a B cup. They don't sag, but I haven't had kids so I know that's a huge factor

I never wear a bra when I'm at home, but I don't feel comfortable without one in public. But how I miss my bra free days! It's the best thing ever. But I was also A LOT lighter back then, and had a A-cup instead of my current D-cup. I'll burn all my bras as soon as I feel comfortable without them.  ^_^

Also, I feel like I should know my bra sizes but I don't know. When ever my mom and I go bra shopping she just looks at my bra size tag and tells me what size to get. I pick out the designs :]

I've had kids and nursed them all and have no sag, but, I do have stretch marks since they get twice as big when I was nursing the babies.

 

I have very small boobs (barely A) and barely a B when I was breastfeeding. It's so embarrassing having teeny boobs, I so badly wish I were a B or C.

 

I did buy a bombshell bra from VS and it does create the illusion of having bigger boobs (large B to small C range) but there's no cleavage and they look kind of like helmets with no natural movement. I hate the way it feels too. But unless I'm wearing that I don't wear a bra.

99% of the time I wear a bralette. 

wish I could go completely braless again but the time will come soon when I lose enough weight.

Sometimes I wear a bandeau, & sometimes skip a bra all together. I have a dermal piercing in a tattoo on my side that gets caught in underwire :-/

I can only sometimes tolerate sports bras and lacy lingerie, but 99% of the time I am bra-less. My breasts are only like A-B at best though.

I only wear a bra when I leave the house! After breastfeeding, they are beyond help without surgery lol so I don't care while I'm at home but would NEVER leave the house without a bra to pull those suckers up!
