Happy No Bra Day! Honestly, I can say Ive never heard of it util my internet friend BeBe Benjamin of Nappy Model told me about it. Some of you may know, Im all about the bra free life but Ms. BeBe has some very opposing views and so this collab was born! Check out our stories and let me know what side you’re on!
Baring the Boobs: loving my breast (and self) without the bra
Your boobs. Your flags. Please don’t drop ’em!

Boobs are like flags in a sense. When everything is good around the nation, the flags are at full staff…exactly where they need to be. Then, where there’s a disaster, the flags are at half-staff position, and God forbid if the flags should ever touch the ground!
I’m a Baby Boomer and an Ole Timer like me wouldn’t be caught in public bra-less. Why?
1. I can see therefore I take cover.
Remember when Eve ate of the fruit and her eyes were opened? She knew that she was naked and did something about it. I’m not sure if that was the beginning of the bra, but I’d be will be bet a bag of apples that it was.
2. It’s the law!
It’s like wearing a seat belt. No matter how uncomfortable they may be at first, you get use to them because they are for your own safety. In case you have to slam on your brakes suddenly, at least your bra will hold your boobs in place and you won’t have to search for them in your console, dash, floorboard, or use your GPS to find them.
3. Wearing a bra keeps other parts of your body cool.
Your stomach will thank you during the hot, humid summer months. Without two heavy folds of skin resting on it, it can receive proper ventilation.
4. Bras keep your ta-tas warm.
There’s nothing more unsightly than headlights, high beam or low and no matter how they may try, men just cannot look away. Do we really want that type of attention? Heck, children stare too and wonder if those are marbles in your top!
5. I like to give hugs.
Sorry, but it doesn’t matter if it’s a long lost relative, I’m just not hugging you if your puppies are loose and running around in the yard. Give me a one arm side hug or no hug at all.
6. Bras are anti-aging devices.
Since most of us are not going to put out big bucks for breast enhancements and since most everything that droops (eyelids, buttocks, cheeks tend to make us look older, what do you think about low-rider breasts? Hoist those bad boys up and take the years off!
7. Wearing a bra helps to even the ODDS!
Bras gives uniformity and shape to uneven breasts. You didn’t really think your breasts were identical, did you?
No two body parts are.
8. Because it’s what girls are taught to do.
Train up a child…remember that? First we had cover ups or “training bras” before wearing the real thing. These pre-bras were preparing us for the days that we would advance from games likes hopscotch and jumping rope to more intense sports where going without a bra could literally be a slap in the face!
9. A job requires it!
Going bra-less could cost you your job. Remember those guidelines in your Employee Handbook that refer to your dress code? Though not specifically outlined, one could conclude that proper attire includes proper foundation garments.
10. At least two parts of me have remained semi- “forever young”.
Now that I’m my later years, I’m glad that I chose to wear bra daily. At my age, there’s enough cheesy cellulite to go around, but my two friends have stayed close to home, because I wear bras…all the time…even to bed!
So, I will be wearing a bra on National No Bra Day and not be a part of a national disaster!
