Ladies, we burned the bra in the 70s. Do you still feel half-dressed and exposed if you go out in public without wearing one? (when you're not in your red carpet attire, that is)
Being blessed with no tits I have never worn a brassiere. I am not embarrassed if my nipples show but in public I tend to wear something that conseals them as I don't wish to cause any accidents. They are as they were when I was in my teens. And when did nipples become something to block on TV? The whole breast can be visible but the nipple is the obscene censored visual. What insane logic.
I ditched bras about 2 years ago and it's been an interesting journey. I physically feel more comfortable without one. It's been difficult adjusting to people's reactions but I've learned to ignore them and I'm not as insecure about it anymore. Side perk, my boobs have gotten perkier.
In my 20's, I was having a glass of wine with the Seattle YMCA Camp Orkila Director, when he accidentally called me "Nipples."
"What did you say?" I asked, appalled. "Did you just call me Nipples?" Mike admitted that among the so-called "professional" men at the YMCA, my joke name was "Nipples."
I have been wearing a lightly padded bra ever since.
