I only wear sports bras myself : https://poshmark.com/listing/2-CUTE-girls-sport-bras-size-1012-5d0569317f617f490d5bf582

I feel like most other bra types are fetishistic and serve more to cater to the male gaze than to make women more comfortable especially lingerie... 😣

I especially hate the ones who separate the breasts from each other as I feel like they call a LOT of unnecessary attention in addition to being uncomfortable for me... I once decided to try one and when I arrived home my chest was hurting so much... :(

I have had a veeery turbulent relationship with my breasts and wanted to remove them during my teenager years but these days I am more ok with them...

I try not to. I almost never do at home. Depending on the weather and what kind of layering I can do I may not when out either. I put on one of the old sexy underwire bras that was hanging out in the back of my drawer and I can't believe I ever wore that for hours at a time. It felt like a mild torture device.

I love that walking around braless is good for my health, as the sway of them helps my lymphatic system move. I also started doing some breast self-massage, and I feel like my breasts are happier and I feel more connected to them than I ever had before.

Breast massages are indeed awesome! I enjoy them a lot myself! It has helped me let go of some of the hate I had for my breasts during my teenager years significantly... I wouldn't say that I " love " my breasts now but I stopped hating them at least... I became more " ok " with them you may say...

Yes. I wear tee shirt bras which are lightly padded as to avoid nipple exposure under tee shirts. They aren’t uncomfortable for me. (I have worn the same brand/model for over a decade now). They are supportive. My ex told me I needed new bras that “gave more support…..which was just his way of saying they weren’t sexy enough for him. They are plenty “supportive”. He also hated the fact that I wear camis 24/7 for anxiety relief as he didn’t like the “uniboob” look. 🙄

exhibit A of males prioritising their own pleasure over women's comfort.

I wear similar style bras but I remove the padding because I've never managed to camouflage the lines where the padding ends. I don't really care if my nipples stick out because I usually wear pretty loose fitting dark shirts.

Another size G here, so hell to the yeah - the only time I’d take it off is when I’m horizontal. And maximum separation as well, to stop that in-between sweat.

Yes. I feel uncomfortable without a bra on. I wear a bra at home because I don't like walking without one on. I also don't like my nipples being in a direct contact with my shirt - they get sore.

That said, I'm extremely picky about my bras. I like maidenform

I retrained my muscles to comfortably hold my breasts without a bra. I haven't worn bras for so long now that I don't even know what cup size I am. I wear camisoles mostly! If I was going to wear a white or blue dress shirt, I would just wear a bralette or a sports bra. There is no way I will ever put on an underwire ever again.

I only wear bralettes. Nothing padded or with an underwire. If I wear a baggy top I can go braless.

this is what i do. just round the house or if i'm only popping out a short distance i don't wear a bra at all but if i'll be walking around a fair bit i need some support.

i didn't stop wearing bra until covid hit and i couldn't see the point having them on for sitting round the house. it was such a revelation and i will never buy an underwired bra ever again.

Oh bralettes seem awesome! I think some of my bras could already be considered bralettes... I'm not very familiar with bra terminology since I never cared much about it since I hated my breasts though most of my teenager years... XD

And yes padded bras and underwires are the worst! Underwires are so complicated to put on!

I like these ones. I have a bunch and rotate them. (I'm not advertising for them).

I nurse and don’t want my breasts to leak on my shirt. So yes.

I didn’t realize how many of us only/typically wear sports bras! I do that too. I would feel somewhat uncomfortable being out and about without a bra on. But to be fair, a lot of it is probably more about wanting my nipples covered, you know, so I don’t “nip out” rather than comfort in the support sense—but honestly I don’t know what the difference would be like. Basically I’m always in a sports bra unless I’m in pajamas or whatnot

i want to get some tape or something to cover my nipples. i really don't need a bra, my boobs are too small for even the smallest size I saw.

people need to stop sexualizing women's nipples.

I wish I didn’t have to worry about my nipples poking through my clothing. But of course it’s all about how men see us and not what’s comfortable for us.

Once sweater season hits, I don't wear bras when I'm not working. Screw it! I spend months in sweaters and coats in Canada during the winter season and if someone somehow notices that my bras aren't shoved up to my chin they can keep their opinions to themselves. I don't care!

I only wear sports bras, regular ones hurt and make me feel like a piece of meat at market tbh, and I try not to wear the ones that are too tight because I used to do that as my own less dangerous version of binding but it still hurt my ribs.

I occasionally go out without one as I am trying to deal with the dysphoria and have promised myself to exhaust all other measures before pursuing something like a reduction.

The whole gross shop teacher thing has actually triggered my dysphoria worse than it's been for a while and I'd dearly like to "yeet the teets" lol but I know the health risks and drawbacks aren't worth it.

I only wear sports bras too. The other ones are uncomfortable and too sexual looking. I used to not wear bras but I have decent sized breasts so I couldn’t get away with it and I got sick of my breasts getting sore from slapping up against my body. To me sports bras are the only good bra.
