Bras have always been an anoyance to me. And I have been facinated as to how women can manage to fasten and unfasten the joins in the back of the contraption...just blows me away.

Any way, why bras? I like women bras-less. So what is the point? It appears they are a relatively recent development in the anals of mankind. Is this commercialism run wild?

I hear they are linked with increased incidence of breast cancer too. Should they be outlawed as a safety hazzard?

If you have big boobs you need the support. If you go bra less they would be down to your knees over time, or so they say. There is no way I could work out bra less :eek: I wouldn't even leave the house bra less. If you have small boobs you can get away with it.

Well why is it women only recently started wearing the undergarment? I am not a believer that they will be down to your knees over time if you did not wear a bra. I have heard women fear that outcome but seen no emperical proof of same. I think breasts just naturally sag over time regardless of what is done short of surgery.

I had to chuckle the gallery where people posted pics of their boobs, and were complaining despite having an awesome pair.

Female breasts are obviously wobbly masses with no skeletal or muscular support, and tend to flop around. The main goal of the bra is to control them .....for whatever purpose.


From the looks of the website, the problem isn't the bra (as far as cancer risk), the problem is the design. Assuming the technical problems could be resolved to permit circulation of lymph (assuming it's 100% confirmed as the real culprit), then bras would no longer be "dangerous". There would also need to be additional redesign to solve the flaws related to weight distribution.

"Bras have always been an anoyance to me." -joepistole

Isn't this the real issue that needs to be analyzed? Your personal issue with the difficulties in unfastening a bra, describing it as a contraption, could this be a case for Freudian fanatics?

By the way, I wear bras every day but my physical outline and even my nipples are sometimes still disernible beneath a tight shirt, and I often get disdainful looks from other women. I have learned to stop caring about their reactions, there are limitations to clothing choices for a woman with 36DD's that they just cannot ever empathize with. ;)

Really???? You thought those girls had awesome pairs??????

I was looking at those pictures and all I could think was total disbelief that this is actually what passes as "normal". I don't mean to sound crude, but I've seen a fair sample size of women's breasts, and every pair I've ever seen has been better than every pair I saw on that website. And I'm not meaning that to brag. I would never say that all the girls I've seen topless have been way better than "normal". But I can say with certainty that I've never seen any breasts like those in my life.

Except for the pictures of Asian girls with really small breasts. That I have seen.

But the ones with huge gaps in the middle? Never. Or those strange ones that are really long but really thin? Never. Or the ones that literally look like a kind of flattened pancake? Nope.

I wouldn't say any of this to those girl's faces - I'm not quite that rude - but I really don't think that's a fair sampling of "normal". If it is, then I've been getting only fantastically hot girls for the last 7 years.

I wear a bra only when I go into town, another person's house, or work. Not when I am in the house or in my flower garden. Same goes for make-up. But I'd go without make-up before I'd go without a bra.

For active women who have larger breasts, it's painful when you are doing something active (I play raquetball, softball, soccer and also workout every day) they bounce hard and slap the skin as well. I've actually thought about breast reduction surgery so I didn't have to wear a bra at all, but I have tested positive for the BRCA2 gene and have a high probability that I will end up losing them both anyway at some point. My mother lost hers at 36, and her mother at 42 so eventually I will just have them out and get a smaller implant that won't require me to wear a bra.

I only wear them at work, or when workin out. I am well aware of the breast cancer risks, and I've always made sure I never wear bras with underwires or that put pressure points on any part of me. I just use them to support evenly, and as soon as I am home, I take it off unless I am doing something really active.

And I'm not a feminist, nor do I wear makeup.

I think some women take wearing bras as femine rather than functional. Do some women feel more sexual wearing bra?

They go get a fancy bra for the beau when in fact he would prefer to see her without it.

As men I think we need to do everything to support women as they deal with the issues of breast cancer. Women are far more than just breasts. But breasts are nice too.

You are of course absolutely right, joepistole, in pointing out that bras are a remarkably modern invention. I put this down to the uninventiveness of women. If men had boobs, bras would have been around since Ancient Egyptian times. Rameses II would have been wearing one! :)

After reading joepistole posts on this thread, I think he could have simplified things and merely stated he didn't like bras. For instance,



It appears they are a relatively recent development in the anals of mankind

Isn't true at all.


During recorded history, women have used a variety of garments and devices to cover, restrain, or elevate their breasts. Brassiere or bikini-like garments are depicted on some female athletes in the 1400s BC during the Minoan civilization era. Similar functionality was achieved by both outerwear and underwear.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brassiere

Prior to the 20th century women occasionally wore strips of cloth under or over the breasts. But that is far from the contraption we refer to as a bra today.

While it is true that I do not like bras. The question is why do women wear them, given that they have been linked to cancer and given the fact that they can be difficult to wear and expensive. We know some women think, especially if they are well endowed, necessary to keep their maiden form. But I think that is an idea reenforced by the marketers of bras rather than on reality. Has anyone done any emperical study to prove the value of the bra, other than psychological? And why are some women offended when they see others without bras?

in fact my ex always liked me to leave my bra on so that he could undress me. walking around with everything hanging out just takes some of the intrigue/romance/fun out of it!

Or to appear much larger then they are, or give you cleavage you don't have yourself. Ever looked in the bra department?
The bras stand up by themselves. They have so much padding, inserts called cookies, little balloon pillows etc. It is the scenario where the girls boobs fall to the ground with the bra.

It is almost hard to find a bra when you have larger breasts because with all that extra shit in them there is no room left for your actual breasts. :mad: Although I must say they have come a long way and make really nice bras above a C cup now.
Before D-DD used to look like utility garments, now they are sexy looking.


Have you seen the padded asses they sell too? For anyone who wants a J-lo butt. It looks absolutely ridiculous.

HAHA Why do women wear nearly anything?

To LIE.

They aren't that tall, their calves not that strong - high heels.

They got shitty hair they cover with a hat or buy hair someone shaved off their head in India for 2 bucks.

They want to change their boobs - bra(padded, too small, etc) ya sometimes to preserve the perfect...

They might be fuckin homely and cake a bunch of makeup on their face, spreadin red lipstick to make their wimpy lips look big, blue eye stuff to make beady eyes big.

They even pad their asses now that they know men sometimes jack off to fat bottom girls.

Bzzt wrong..

I feel bad for women, I do. After a so-called liberation, they still feel like they gotta wear all this shit to get a man. I'd rather a natural, real beauty and that's what I got.


Will and willingness.-- Someone took a youth to a sage and said: "Look, he is being corrupted by women." The sage shook his head and smiled. "It is men," said he, "that corrupt women; and all the failings of women should be atoned by and improved in men. For it is man who creates for himself the image of woman, and woman forms herself according to this image."
"You are too kind-hearted about women," said one of those present; "you do not know them." The sage replied: "Will is the manner of men; willingness that of women. That is the law of the sexes - truly, a hard law for women. All of humanity is innocent of its existence; but women are doubly innocent. Who could have oil and kindness enough for them?"
"Damn oil! Damn kindness!" someone shouted out of the crowd; "Women need to be educated better!" - "Men need to be educated better," said the sage and beckoned to the youth to follow him. - The youth, however, did not follow him.

I wear a bra because my breasts already bounce enough with one just when I'm walking, it hurts if I don't wear one and if I have to jog or run I'd have to hold them with my hands. Bras are much more convenient if I have to run and carry things.

Well both women and men wear pubic undergarments. I don't wear tight undergarments. And except for the occasional misalignments, I am good. I don't wear things that are too tight. I am not trying to impress anyone...don't need to advertise. I only wish I had an extra 20 feet or so, then I could go to the bathroom while sitting in my chair. :)

Well made bras are also not "tight". If they are, there is something wrong with the construction. They are supposed to support the breasts, not strangle them. Many women under/overestimate their bra sizes and wear the wrong size. Plus, sizes are not consistent across brands and style. A "full" bra is different from a demi and a balconet or a pushup. What you wear for support is different from what you wear for style. Unfortunately, the most attractive bras are also the most unhealthiest. C'est la vie.

But my point is that women are more attractive without the bra and unless one has huge breasts seem to serve no good purpose...except style and tradition. But maybe it is a good thing that women wear bras as men would most likely be extremely distracted. There is a hormone that is released when we are stimulated that severly constrains are abilty to think logically.

I flit between C and D bras (different shops, different sizes) so I would not consider myself 'big-bosomed'. Nevertheless, walking briskly or jumping without a bra can be pretty painful for me.

It's first and foremost a comfort thing. Then, since we need to wear them anyway, we have made them pretty and provocative - so they are also a fashionable item.

But that's a social construct, S.A.M.

I think what joepistole is trying to say is that if it contributes to higher incidents of breat cancer, and it's uncomfortable and unhealthy, why prop them up for display as if they should be on a shelf and just looked at. For excercise and activity, I think that it's best to bind them in a way that would prevent injury, but for average day-to-day, we've made women feel like the average breast should look like a perfect breast every time. If this weren't the case, cosmetic surgeons wouldn't be such a popular field to go into.

In my opinion, natural is always best and healthiest. Caking your face with makeup, wearing clothes that are too tight (like corsets and bindings), dying your hair, painting your fingers and toes are a social ritual abused by capitalist pigs as a way to make more money, no matter the cost to a woman's self esteem. It's the same social construct that makes girls stick their fingers down their throats to lose five stone, or do their hair, clothes and makeup to make them look like they are 18 when they are only just 10. It borders on insanity, and any healthy adult can see that and avoid that. But a lot of people honestly believe they have to live according to the ideals set forth by the media even if you lose all your dignity and become ashamed of the person who's underneath all the facades you feel you have to build for society's sake.

Breasts are beautiful, and it's more comfortable to not have them bound up like criminals. So what if a woman is older and they sag a bit? Mine do, but I've also nursed two healthy boys with them. No matter what they look like, they are an amazing piece of our anatomy and should not be treated as something to improve about yourself. You are what you are given, body and mind. You can't paint the exterior to make it a better house, you can only take care of what's inside to make it a great place to live.

I agree with the natural stuff, I rarely paint my face and then it always looks painted unnatural to me. But have you tried running without a bra? Its uncomfortable and even painful. And my breast size is average [36D]. Can't imagine how fuller women would do it. Besides, it looks ungainly.

I turn it around. Its not that big a deal, but I used to have a stiff back and its become habitual. Its much harder to button a choli or zip up one of those hard to pull zips than it is to hook a bra. They are constructed to be easy to put on and take off.

I have D's as well, but I don't see the need for bras other than when doing physical activity. There is no evidence that it keeps your skin taut or in good shape at all, it doesn't train them to not sag either, only exercises will do that. It's all just a myth.

I can't exercise without a bra either, it just plain hurts to do so and the skin will chafe as well against whatever shirt you are wearing anyway. It's important while exercising with women who are larger than a B.

As soon as I get home, and don't expect to be working out (I workout in the mornings before work at 4 am) the bra comes off and doesn't come back on until the next morning. It's much more comfortable.

I have D's as well, but I don't see the need for bras other than when doing physical activity. There is no evidence that it keeps your skin taut or in good shape at all, it doesn't train them to not sag either, only exercises will do that. It's all just a myth.

I can't exercises without a bra either, it just plain hurts to do so and the skin will chafe as well against whatever shirt you are wearing anyway. It's important while exercising with women who are larger than a B.

Yup, but I wear it for comfort, not as an alternative to exercise. I just cannot leave the house without a bra.


As soon as I get home, and don't expect to be working out (I workout in the mornings before work at 4 am) the bra comes off and doesn't come back on until the next morning. It's much more comfortable.

Agreed. But I usually wait until I am going to sleep. I do know that some women wear bra tops to bed as well. They feel uncomfortable with the sense of looseness.

Erm... not wearing bras is uncomfortable for most women.

I flit between C and D bras (different shops, different sizes) so I would not consider myself 'big-bosomed'. Nevertheless, walking briskly or jumping without a bra can be pretty painful for me.

It's first and foremost a comfort thing. Then, since we need to wear them anyway, we have made them pretty and provocative - so they are also a fashionable item.

Oh and on a last note, can I just point out that for anyone with half a brain they are VERY easy to undo. I submit, joepistole, that you only made this thread to broadcast to the forum that a woman has let you take hers off. Cesspool?

I'd consider anything from C and up large.

And yes, they are very easy to undo. You can undo them using only 3 fingers.

Well.. fair enough. I imagine it is somewhat different when you're the one removing it from yourself.

However, when one is removing it from another, it can be done with 2 fingers. The method is very similar to yours: reaching around, the forefinger is used to hold the eye strap down, and the thumb is pressed against the hook strap, then simply squeeze. Bringing the two together lifts the hooks free of the loops. Let go, and commence fun.

Training bras are actually unnecessary, they train little girls to get used to wearing a bra. But they usually don't need a bra yet, they just want to feel grown up. I got a bra when I was 9 before I actually really needed one, but I now I wear one because it's to annoying and painful not too. The only time I take it off is when I go to sleep. Because the only time they don't bounce around and hurt.

Why do guys wear jockstraps? It's uncomfortable to have your shit bouncing all over the place all the time. Not to mention, for women, quite obvious when this bouncing occurs and attracts unwanted attention. I have always been larger then average for my age. My nickname in high school was 'Chestica'. When I was younger, kids made fun of me because of my breasts! Then when we all got older, they all were jealous and I secretly laughed inside. Bras are a personal choice, but for me I wear them when I feel bouncing should be limited (like work or the gym), but other then that, I rarely wear any underwear.

Actually, I think that most women would find that letting them be natural, is preferable to bras if you let go of the social stigma and if they weren't taught at the beginning that they must holster and support.

I still think that bras for everyday use were a social construct that cause more harm than good, and also lower womens self esteem by pitting ithem against one another for who has the most ample bosom. Hence, push-up and padded bras.

Not true. The mammaries and surrounding tissue have many lymph nodes that can have circulatory issue when too much pressure is applied unnaturally. It is definitely indicated in a higher instance of breast cancer in many studies. So it's not like a back or knee brace at all, because it's not supporting muscular tissue, just propping up breast tissue which is mostly fatty except when engorged with milk after pregnancy.

Women were not meant to sit there and "look pretty" their biological function is that of motherhood, with the breasts being a very central part to that purpose.

The idea that bras are needed for a woman to look more beautiful is oppressive even, to the point of actually harming your body in order to fit some social norm.

Do you think that women in rural Africa, South America and other tribal units where women do not wear bras find it uncomfortable, or their men find them unattractive? I am fairly sure that you would find that the thoughts didn't cross their minds.

Bras are an oppressive social construct, and that is why feminists used to burn them. I do feel the same way about high heels, and so does every podiatrist I've ever spoken to. Bunions, hammer toes, corns and deformities only high heels can give all to make the calf of a woman look leaner, or "more pretty"... it's sad really.

Bras keep woman's breasts firm and high, mimicking a youthful fertile woman. In societies with a larger population than a small Amazonian tribe, woman need to be more competitive. Bras are justified in your primitive, biological reasoning.

Show a Tribesman an American woman with decades of bra defining fertile, vital, energetic breasts-
and he will surely much rather 'use' her,

If you get a bra that fits properly then surely the pressure/restriction issue is no longer an issue. People like Trinny and Suzannah have run endless campaigns to try and motivate women to go and get themselves measured and fitted, as a surprising amount of females walk around in the wrong cup size.
So perhaps its not wearing bras per se that carries the risk, but wearing bras that are too small. After all, you're talking about bras as if they're some horrific contraptions made out of steel - a well-fitted bra is VERY comfortable.

In science you need data to prove causation....you need a study group and a control group. A group of braless women with saggy breasts does not mean the saggyness was caused by the lack of a bra.

Citation please? There is no evidence that a bra prevents sagging. Apparently, you've never seen a lean 70 year old woman naked. The reason why the women in National Geographic look saggy is because they've had children and while they had children their breasts were engorged with milk and heavy causing skin stretching which happens with a bra as well as without. But because they are lean and lacking in excess fatty tissue, once the milk has dried and the hormones change, the breasts appear deflated and they sag. It is natural for a woman to look that way, and no bra is going to prevent that. Without surgery, most older women in first world countries who are thin and have had children will look the exact same way even though they have likely worn bras all of their lives.

A full breast is a sign of fertility during the child bearing years, and does attract the male almost instinctually in the hunter/gatherer aspect. Trust me when I tell you that when your balls are creating less sperm... they'll sag a lot too. And no amount of tidy whiteys will help prevent that either ;)

CutsieMarie89
02-20-09, 12:16 PM
Bras don't prevent sagging. Doesn't aging decrease the elasticity of your skin anyway, which is why people's entire bodies can eventually be covered in saggy skin? Bras just make life more comfortable. I run, walk, go down stairs...etc. with little pain or discomfort.

"We have no evidence that wearing a bra could prevent sagging, because the breast itself is not muscle, so keeping it toned up is an impossibility. What it can do, particularly for larger-breasted women, is obviously to provide the comfort and the support."
executive John Dixey at Bras, Bare Facts documentary (http://www.007b.com/bra_sagging.php)

So perhaps we should only wear them when we start to sag? Otherwise they're not needed.

Liebling
02-20-09, 01:50 PM
There is zero scientific evidence that bras prevent breasts from sagging naturally. It only supports the breast while it is worn, but once removed the breast will naturally return to it's regular state. There is very slight evidence that it actually causes more sagging because it reduces the muscle underneath from working to support the breast tissue.

The ball of ignorance is in your court there, eddie.

it seems to me that a bra that is too large will also have constriction issues.
the reasoning is that a woman will tighten the straps in order to achieve a fit.
since the cup size is too large they will over tighten the straps.

in my opinion a good fitting halter top will serve in most cases and have no constriction issues.

Halter tops provide very little to no support unless they have bras built into them.
If the cup size to to large it won't sit on your chest right, it'll just look weird. And tightening the straps won't make it fit better. It'll just pinch your shoulders, more than your breasts. I think most women, unless they are planning on stuffing their bra, probably by a their bras too small (on accident of course, they don't know their size, because they weren't measured) than they do too large. Because bras that are too big are obviously so, even underneath clothes. At least that's what I learned when I was modeling. Designers and photographers have fits when bras are too big.

Reading this initiating thread, I just realized. There is no hope for answers, nor backup scientific genius to call for a witness for me in court.

Internet sites are sometimes "unusual", almost seeming intentionally contrived. For instance, if I emailed you the print out I made when I noticed the bizarre consistancy of this site's threads' numbers and the views' numbers from a few nights ago they were almost identical in certain topic threads. Not all topic threads, but consistant within certain threads geared more toward social views and personal opinions.

Most women who are used to wearing bras feel uncomfortable without bras, but this is a question of habit and of individual perception. Your body likely feels most comfortable without any clothing on, assuming the temperature in your environment would allow that. Also, most women are so used to bras that they don't even notice the possible slight discomfort from bras.

But if you think about it, you might be able to sense some discomfort and tightness from your bra. When you take your bra off, do you feel something similar to the feeling when you have eaten your belly full at a restaurant, and you loosen your belt a little? Can you possibly even see little red marks on your skin after taking bra off? If you answer yes to these questions, your breasts may be trying to tell you something!

"Asked if a bra is uncomfortable, most women will respond "no", even though the evidence is there. This may be the result of conditioning towards certain social "rules" actually outweighing the physical discomfort. In other words, it is more uncomfortable to be braless in today's society."

Bras are an excellent idea, as long as they are from Victoria's Secret (http://www2.victoriassecret.com/landing/?cgnbr=OSBRPZZZZZZ)...

Caution: While this is a catalog site for a mainstream woman's clothing store, some of their advertising material can be a lot of fun to view...

I guess Victoria's Secret scared off even the heartiest of the SF members... :shrug:

Or maybe everyone is busy perusing the catalog (http://www2.victoriassecret.com/landing/?cgnbr=OSPTYZZZZZZ)?

I have noticed that some women get angered when other women do not wear bras. I think bras may have a legitimate function for some women. But in many other cases I think it is more a matter of habit and perception. I think some women may identify their sexuality with the bra...just an opinion based on my perceptions.

I wear a bra in public because I have a very large pair that would be a major negative attention-getter if I didn't. Lifting them up a little bit makes my clothes look/fit nicer, too. I take it off the second I get home. My really pretty, nice bras can make me feel a little friskier, too.:D I like La Perla the best. This one is kind of fun:

A lot of the girls in my grade honestly don't need bras, but wear them only because if they didn't gym class would be a lot more embarrassing (changing, not the running or something).
