I regularly have a collection of bras in the backseat of my car. Racing down the highway and pull the blasted thing out my sleeve. I really try not to wear them if at all possible. So why would you wear one?

According to Wikipedia bra /ˈbrɑː/) is a woman’s undergarment that supports her breasts. Bras are typically form-fitting and perform a variety of functions and have also evolved into a fashion item. The primary purpose of a bra is to enhance the wearer’s comfort by supporting her breasts. Women sometimes wear bras to conform to informal or formal social norms such as a business dress code. In Western countries, it is estimated that from 75% to 90% of women wear a bra. A minority do not wear a bra, sometimes for health or comfort reasons, or because they believe they do not need one. Some garments, such as camisoles, tank tops and backless dresses, have built-in breast support, alleviating the need to wear a separate bra.

So by not wearing one today do you feel solidarity with our 60’s mothers and grandmothers who burnt them in effigy? I’m just happy to give the girls a little breathing space for a socially sanctioned event.
