Today’s article is going to be about bras, and why I dislike them, and why I don’t wear them, and why I believe that you shouldn’t either. So let’s get started. I have a few reasons to why I dislike them, and why I think we shouldn’t be wearing them as women. It’s been playing on my mind for ages and something I wanted to share for a long time.

Reason #1. They are So Uncomfortable

They are tight and they just there, and you feel restricted, and they’re either too big or too small or just uncomfortable. How many times have you come home from a day out wearing an underwire bra, and the first thing you want to do is take your bra off because then you feel like you can be comfortable, you’re not genuinely comfortable unless you have your bra off?

Reason #2. I Can’t Breathe

Reason number two, which may be fall under the category of number one as well, is that I can’t breathe when I wear it. I feel so restricted, and I feel like I can’t get a full breath in, it feels so tight all the time, and I can’t breathe.

Reason #3. Bras Cut off Blood Circulation

Studies have shown that it cuts off your circulation. You can see when you take off your bra, the lines underneath. That’s all blood flow, important blood flow not getting to your skin and your flesh, and it is blocking your lymphatic system. And the lymphatic system, as we all know, is essential for draining, and circulating, and removing toxins from your body. And you’re blocking the main ones in your exhilarating nodes under your arms. And that can cause breast cancer, and it can produce toxins going to your brain and just so bad for you.

Reason #4. Breast Cancer

It can cause breast cancer. There has been a research showing that it does link to breast cancer and others showing that it doesn’t link to breast cancer. But at the end of the day, what does every large company at their want that makes a commodity? They want your money. They just like any other company that wants your money. So they’re probably making their studies showing that bras don’t cause breast cancer. But you are blocking important lymph node, and that’s usually where breast cancer develops.


Reason #5. Bras are Expensive

Why I don’t wear bras is because of this is so expensive. I remembered last year, I’ve lost so much weight, and none of my bras fit me. And I got to the point where I wasn’t wearing bras, and I thought  “I should start wearing bras again” because I thought that I had to. And, you know, if there’s nothing wrong with wanting to feel feminine, and beautiful, and be sexy in bras and underwear, but at the end of the day, did society create that image for us, that we have to wear bras and underwear like lacy kind of staff to be a woman and feel feminine? You should be feeling female and beautiful naked, just going off what you have.

I had to purchase a new bra, and that cost me like ninety dollars because I have lost my weight. And that’s the thing breasts change so much; they change during your period, they change during pregnancy, they change during weight loss, through you hormonal changes, a lot of things that they fluctuate a lot. So yeah, it’s just a waste of money having to buy new bras all time.
