Its liberating for me to knowing that I can pull off an outfit with no bra. I feel such freedom and control since I’m not dictated by public opinion of what is “kosher” to wear. For fear of being condemned for going outside of what is proper and what is not.
The idea of breast feeding in public alone is straining social norms which should be normal behavior. Especially for those who believe they evolved from monkeys, why aren’t monkeys banned from breastfeeding. Also, I don’t see the monkeys being ridiculed for publicly feeding their young while in the wild or in a zoo.
Is it the issue of nipples that bring ire or discust in social media? Celebrities strut their nipples in see through attires in the red carpet its accepted. However once breasts are used for nurturing human babies its a public outcry! Come on people!
Anyway enough of my rant because in this episode, blazers is what got me to be comfortable this weekend.
Yes! I am loving another weekend of trying on my quest to no bra wear weekend. This episode deals with layers. It gets tricky because I live in a tropical heat area with humidity, so dressing in layers needs experience and a wannabe fashionista degree.
I found that layering even in the tropical heat can be done, as long as you don’t mind getting several quiziccal looks. For instance, I wore a clashing of prints to layer over my jumper with a bold printed turtleneck with shoulder cut-offs. Finally, I finished it off with a pair of classic Espadrilles.
I love how the double-take looks I get are not towards my chest.
Every weekday my chest is subjected to sports bras even if I am only blest with a humble cup size, the likes of teenage girls before hormone altered food was sold in grocery stores. I mean a NEGATIVE-A cup size. I used to buy my bras at the girls section frequented only by teenage girls and their moms, shopping for their first pair. Here I am a 30+ old woman shopping for the same thing but like everything in life change happens, meaning motherhood and gravity took over so now I have to resort to sports bras just to feel comfortable.
With my weekday restrictions I felt the need to literally “free the ta-tas” by going bra less every weekend. Thanks to my chest size still being the same but non-perky, I figured I share my tips with each episode.
For episode 1, Ruffles! I successfully worn colorful ruffles around my chest area with no issue. The ruffling is somewhat similar to the curve of a bust is expected so I managed to make it work twice already.
