You wake up...braless
Okay, now I know I'm not the only woman out there that absolutely hates bras and think they were handcrafted by the devil himself. We've always been told they will support our girls, blah blah blah. But what if I told you it was all a lie and plore to keep them captive?! Not that dramatic but while doing some research on bras and the benefits, or lack thereof, several websites claim that wearing one may not be completely necessary. I'm no scientist but I surely know how to use google. Though research conducted on whether bras are necessary or not isn’t definitive, wearing one is known to reduce shoulder pain (duh) but more shocking, induce sagging. And here I am thinking bras will help keep these tig ol bitties stay perky forever, LIES!
After much googling (googling), my first thought was “who’s the asshole (meaning a man) that invented this a torture device?!” But alas, le bra was invented by a woman *cue deep dramatic sigh*. That said woman is Mary Phelps Jacobs . Sister Mary went by Caresse Crosby after she was awarded a bra patent in 1914. So the story goes that she as was going some party and wanted boob support without dealing with the bulkiness of a corset; she used two handkerchiefs and some ribbon and voilà, you have the first bra.
After some time, I thought about going braless for a week. For once I wanted to see how to small boobed guhs feel. Oh and I executed this plan during the workweek because who is ever in compliance with the handbook. Let me preface this by saying I'm a 32DD and very comfortable with my body. This is probs the soul reason I went to work in such a state. And let me also say, it was the most freeing and liberating thing I've done in a while. I think what made this experiment easier was that fact that no one seemed to noticed and if they did, shame!! *rings gong*. By day three, I was pretty over it. Yeah I didn't have the pressure on my chest and shoulders bras attribute to but my boobs had no discipline. These ladies were just flopping around and carrying on without a care in the world or any sense of responsibility so it was time to put the beast back in the cage. Though I would definitely do it again, it wouldn’t be for no more than a day. I have a new respect for bras and I guess we can thank Mary for that *insert upside down emoji smiley face*
