  • I wear a bra at all times except in the shower, and swimming.
    However, I'm not flat chested. 38 DDD, it's better for me to wear a bra at night then to roll over on one of'em LOL.

    Proper fitting...just go get measured

  • First you can go to Victoria Secrets and get fitted properly without even buying anything. I have big ones and I always wear one when I leave the house. When I am home it comes off immediately unless someone is visiting.

  • My mother always told me that if I didn't wear one, when I was older they would hang down to my waist. Well, being small chested myself, that could never happen. But I too have the same problem, I fit between an A and a B. I don't wear one most of the time. I am now 45. They do sag, but I have had 4 children and with age, I don't think it would have made a difference. Not only is it the fit, but my breasts actually ache after wearing one for a few hours. There is no health reason why you need to wear one, it's only to keep from seeing through your shirt, and to keep them lifted up.

  • I am bad about wearing no nips and no bra. I am a b cup and unless I run, you can't really tell the bra is missing. Unless you are a c and up, there is no medical reason to wear a bra. It mostly vanity.

  • I wear camis with the lining inside for the most part, I'm very small chested. I still wear bras cuz I don't want the nips to show.

  • I hate bras! but will only wear one when you can see my nipples. They were invented by men to torture women.

  • I wear one for comfort reasons. If they're not comfortable to you don't wear them! Some tank tops come with built in bras and those might make you feel a little more secure with out having to deal with all the straps and what not.

  • I absolutely hate bras, but I am also a 40DD so I have no choice but to wear them :( ! I have read that underwire in bras leads to cancer as it traps cells causing masses causing breast cancer. I am not sure how true this is but Im quite sure there is a link, so most of my bras do not have underwire in them.

  • When I was BF I often went without, especially in halter tops because they don't make strapless nursing bras lol. Now that I'm not BF I wear one everyday but mine are comfortable and they give me a little lift.
    I see nothing wrong with a woman who does't want to wear one either in public or at home. Screw society and do what is comfortable for YOU

  • thank for the good comments. I just do wear one since small chested and very comfortable so maybe I have not found the right one or in the summer just to hot to wear.
