    @ScottishMrs:  He, we’re the opposite. DH wears his bikini cut (is that what you call them?) underpants all the time, even to bed; while I’ve always slept braless. I’d never go braless around anyone except DH though, even immediate family.

    I don’t sleep in a bra, but if I’m moving around at all I like to have one on. More for my ultra sensitive nipples than for breast support.

    I hate wearing bras unless absolutely necessary, like going to work or other times I need to be out in public and not be hauled off for being indecent :-). As soon as I get home I ditch the boulder-holder and totally free boob it. I find even the best made, properly fitting bras to be uncomfortable and I don’t wear them at home, unless we have company over.  Even then, if the shirt has a built in bra and its a dark color, good enough for me. 

    DH laughs and laughs because I love, love, love clothes and am more of a fashion over function type of girl and wear uncomfortable clothes and sky high heels in the name of fashion but I absolutely hate bras. 

    Heaven help me when I get pregnant and my smallish d-cups get out of control.  It will get ugly, I’m sure.

    If I’m wearing a top,  I’ve got to have a bra on for comfort unless it’s a tank top with a built-in. That being said,  I wander around the house naked or topless quite a bit,  and that includes no bra.  Also sleep totally naked.  So,  I’m 50/50.

    I like to breathe, but I do feel insecure about going bra-less unless it is just me and FI because I am larger chested.

    I actually read a study not long ago that found that women who didn’t wear bras as much had perkier breasts than the ones who did. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/11/women-bras-study-france-false-necessity_n_3062114.html)

    I hope that society becomes more “whatever” about breasts. I would really like to not wear bras most of the time but I don’t want to offend :/ I had a friend in my yoga teacher training and she never wears a bra, but she’s very small chested. It seems really liberating…

    I used to prefer wearing them at all times, even to bed, but now I loooove taking them off at night.

    However, that is only around the house. The only time I go out in public without a bra, is in the dead of winter (when you can’t tell through 5 different layers) and I’m just running out to the store real quick.

    @ScottishMrs:  I can go bra-less if I’m mostly lying down all day or wearing a tight tank top/shirt at home… but if I’m upright and wearing anything that isn’t super squeezy, gotta have the support, even relaxing. I don’t feel comfortable without it. It’s not a modesty thing, I lost a lot of weight way back so they kind of droop, and besides looking odd it just doesn’t feel good.

    In public I wear a bra always. My boobs are too big (36D-DD) to let them hang loose around people. If I am home and its just me FI and daughter I might let more than one area breath lol! But if his son is around, he’s 4 years old, its a no no. But I definitely do not wear a bra to bed.

    I remember the first time I had to wear a bra, I told my mom: “It’s uncomfortable..” and she replied “Well, get used to it.” lol..

    I’m a 42 B/C (depending on the style/fabric of the bra) and I take my bra off ASAP. I’ll wear bras to work/school/evenings out, but as soon as I get home, off it goes! I can’t imagine sleeping in it… unless it was a soft sports bra. But I supposed if you’ve got bigger breasts, it would make more sense and even maybe more comfortable to have them in a bra while you sleep.

    I don’t need a bra for support as I’m very flat chested. I tend to only wear one if I’m wearing an outfit my niples could show through. (This is most clothes so I wear a bra more often than not when I’m out but almost never when I’m at home).

    I definitely don’t wear a bra to sleep in – but will wear it around anyone except SO during the daytime. When I’m at home though, I like to be without one for as long as possible as I find it so much more comfortable without!

    I haven’t been outside the house without a bra on in about 17 years! I’ve got huge girls – 36k (uk sizes), so they need the support, or they’d be down by my waist! As a result though, my bra are wonders of structural engineering, and can be pretty uncomfortable, so the first thing I do when I get in for the night is take my bra off! Sometimes I put on a soft cup sports bra thingy I’ve got, but most of the time I don’t bother. I do use it to sleep in occasionally, if my boobs are really tender because I’m pre-menstrual or something.

    I usually don’t wear one around the house but put it on outside about 90% of the time. As a 28DD I can go either way: it’s not uncomfortable to be braless, but they can get jiggly.

    @ScottishMrs:  My girls need to breath. I hate bras (and I only wear a D, so I feel for you!) and I’m pretty sure they were invented by the devil himself.

    ETA: I’m not gonna complain too much though, we could be wearing corsets! Yay for women!
