I wanted to know what it was like to go bra-lefor three days and share my experience. I'm not used to talking publicly about my body, and I'm sure most people aren't either. Our bodies are a taboo subject despite all of us owning one. In Western society, bras are ss becoming an increasingly optional piece of underwear. With movements such as Itfreethenipple, some groups are encouraging acceptance for women to leave their at home and follow similar modesty guidelines as men. I'm not sure how I feel about the greethenipple movement in particular, but anyone who knows me will immediately say I am a creature of comfort. This means the less straps and cups I wear, the happier I am. In preparation for this experiment, I laid out some ground rules: No bras of any kind (sports bras, pasties, tape etc.) No hiding under baggy hoodies or the like Go about business as I normally would (no skipping classes, appoint- ments, work, etc.) For the duration of the ex- periment, the only people who will know are my editors, photogJ apher and husband. Day one It was a bad week to commit to going to the gym every day. I always wear a sports bra to workout, but I opted for a tight workout tank and another shirt layered on top. When it came to cardio, that was still not good enough. My girls were flying around like caffeinated kids in a bouncy house on the treadmill. I didn't feel like I got enough numing in because I was worried about people seeing the uncontrollable jiggly jello that was my chest. When it came time for weightlifting, I was much more at ease, which helped me forget the traumatic treadmill experience. The rest of the day was enjoyable. One of the daily annoyances of getting dressed is worrying that my straps will show. I wore a top that otherwise would have shown bra straps, which was refreshing. The top was snug enough that it kept everything in place.
