Tips for Women Daring to Go Braless
For many women, the thought of going out in public without a bra is unthinkable. On the other hand, some women find that leaving off the bra is a good option that may complement their look for the evening or simply lead to a feeling of comfort. If you dare to go braless, the following tips can help you look and feel your best.
Many women feel conspicuous about their nipples should they go braless. Hardened nipples can attract unwanted attention, after all. Wearing nipple concealer adhesives prevents the nipples from showing through clothing. The concealers easily stick and conform to the breasts to flatten the nipples. Not all women care for these products. If you don't feel too risqué with your nipples noticeable beneath your garments, you can avoid these concealers.
Many tops and dresses today are designed with built-in bras. You can still "enjoy the comfort of bralessness" (1) without foregoing the important support you need. You might find that a camisole with a built-in bra is ideal for those days when you simply don't want to feel bound up in a bra.
Whether a bandeau bra is technically a bra at all is debatable. Essentially, it's just a narrow tube-top band that wraps around your chest and back. Although it provides some support, it isn't ideal for working out. Many women find them comfortable and prefer wearing them to going completely braless.
Consider the Dress
If you want to wear a dress with an open back, you may as well completely omit the bra and simply enjoy the freedom that the dress affords. Going braless can enhance a sexy look and is quite fitting for certain garments.
While going braless isn't for everyone, it has been growing in popularity once again as evidenced by models and "celebrities" (2) that are omitting their bras for certain outfits. Of course, most women don't go braless every day since bras provide them with the comfortable support they need. If you choose to go braless, however, consider these tips that can help you feel comfortable about the way you look without your bra.
