What’s the first thing you do when you get home? This is a circle of trust, so it’s okay to be honest. A lot of the ladies we spoke to said that once they’re through the door, their bra is one of the first things to go. We don’t have anything against bras, in fact we make some very nice ones. We do think, however, that not only should women enjoy being braless in the comfort of their own homes, but that they should feel that comfort anywhere and everywhere that they please.
A bra helps to hold breasts in place; decorating, supporting and creating cleavage as needed. But bras are not always the most comfortable of garments, especially nearing the end of a long day; and with that, more and more women are regularly opting to go sans bra.
Nowadays, many things are all about being natural. Natural makeup, natural hair, natural food, natural products and natural bodies – just as good ol’ mother nature intended. We think that going down the natural route is a beautiful way to go about life.
Going braless doesn’t have to be a political statement or a body confidence badge of honour – although it can easily be both. In fact, for most, the act of going braless is as simple as feeling comfortable. Of being free of underwire pressing into ribs, or straps flailing off shoulders, or fabrics rubbing into skin.
Going braless can also be the best aesthetic choice for when you wear some of your favourite tops and dresses more comfortably.
Tops with cuts like a racerback, v-neck, racerfront, halter neck and trapeze, all leave bra straps visible. If you’re lucky, some of these styles will anticipate any free-boobing struggles, and will have built-in measures to help manage your breasts, like lining or double layered busts for modesty, or darts and draping for shape.
An easy fix to visible bra straps are the plethora of strapless options on the market. Corsetry in the day-to-day underwear sense may have gone out of fashion decades ago, but the strapless bra is still a boob-corset of sorts, and regardless of ergonomics, padding and technical fabrics, that feeling of constriction is amplified in a strapless bra, thanks to, well, having no straps to support you.
Sticker Your Nips
Other solutions are fashion adhesive tape and the nipple sticker. The adhesive tape is for keeping the fabric of your garment stuck to your skin so there’s no unwanted peek-a-boob. Nipple stickers on the other hand won’t provide any additional support, but will keep the finish of your top nice and smooth; giving the impression that you are wearing something under there. Fabric finish band-aids also do the same job quite nicely.
Free The Nipple
That being said, nipples are trés chic, so if you’re comfortable with yours then there’s no need to cover them up! In the end, it’s your prerogative to just pull your top or dress on over your bare chest and call it a day.
