I’m a 10E in Aus which I think is a 32DDD in USA (?) so the chicken cutlets are not an option for me. This is something I’m very self conscious about, so I rarely go out without a bra and at hone I usually wear a croptop of sorts. With the said seeing other girls nipples doesn’t bother me at all… 

 

Now the 12 Year old me is going to go laught at the amount of times the word nipples has been used in this thread :D.

Although i know they are perfectly natural, I would be very self conscious if my nipples showed.

I don’t like lined bras, don’t like to add more to what I already have. So if the high beams are on, they are on.  Guys are going to look, whether they are sticking out or not. It’s their nature. LOL  

Only time it bothered me was when I was nursing and had to wear a nursing bra, those aren’t padded…so I wore the padded inserts in my nursing bra, and incase of leaks.

This just popped up on my FB, a recent pic of me wearing a dress with no bra. Getting ready for a wedding with my girls. If you think this is immodest, that I look like I have a screw loose, or my family didn’t raise me right because I’m not wearing a bra then we have very different views.

I don’t understand everyone saying it’s easy to avoid. I don’t really consider wearing those cutlets “easy” — they’re not exactly comfortable! And I suppose the other way to cover them at all times is to wear a padded bra, but I’m also not really interested in making my boobs look bigger than they are. I don’t exactly walk around with them poking out all willy-nilly, but if it happens, it happens. I’m not going to make myself physically uncomfortable because people are disturbed by something as innocuous as the barely perceptible outline of a nipple. Please.

@gingerkitten: “in theory, if you are already wearing a bra,  there is no way we would see your nipples.” <— Yeah, that’s just not true. If you wear a thin t-shirt bra, for example, and it’s cold, you’re gonna see something.

@FauxBoho:  I wish I looked like that w/o a bra! IMO, if a girl is a big B or more….she needs a bra in public. I was on line in a store yesterday and a 50 something year old lady had SUPER saggy boobs just hanging….no bra…and it was pretty gross. I have DD’s and literally wear a bra until I am in bed with the lights off, and then it goes back on the minute I’m getting dressed after a shower. I hate not having one on…I feel like I need them secured!

Prude or not I don’t want to see man or womans nipples in certain circumstances. Plain and simple. Places like work and religious places, school etc. Beach, out at a club, bar etc do what you want but in the professional circuit I think all nipples should be propperly covered to reduce them showing. It’s a distraction to say the least, and like it or not people are going to look and it will be sexualized, it’s the way the culture is and as such it needs to be kept out of professional places.

See, I don’t get this and it bothers me.  For a great majority of women, sagging breasts is inevitable. And, sometimes, that’s how your breasts are to begin with. But why is it considered “gross?” Because they look different?  Why is it “gross” unless breasts are perky, pushed up, perfectly round and with no obviously outline?  That’s not how breasts look – they come in hundreds of different shapes and sizes.

It kills me that girls are questioning their attractiveness because of percieved breast aesthetics when the things they are worried about (breast shape, size, areola color/size) are completely normal, but society says “No, all breasts are suppose to look like *this*.”

@Extension54:  In general, when I think of bra-less larger boobs…I think of sweatty underboobs and sloppy-ness. I just don’t think it’s “put together” or civilized looking when I see the entire side profile of her boob sagging down to nearly her belly button. I know boobs naturally sag…mine are, and I don’t have kids yet, but I just think there’s a way to package yourself to appear more polished and going bra-less with large ta-tas isn’t it.

I just don’t get why are men allowed to show their nipples but women can’t. Like someone else said, breasts have been sexualized, so yeah, I feel uncomfortable when my nipples might be showing and I generally have a lined bra (I’m larger busted so I am not comfortable without one) but intellectually I know I shouldn’t be so embarrassed.

It is never okay to have nipples showing.  Get a lightly molded bra!

@starbuckslover:  This times a bunch.  Sloppy, unnecessary and distracting.  Am I going to get all *gasp* offended?  No, but to me it’s like going out with stains on your shirt – it takes two seconds to change your shirt, or throw some type of bra on.  

I think our society has lowered our standards to basically nothing.  Do I want to see a dude’s nipples on the beach?  Fine.  At the grocery store?  No.  As for bras, there’s thousands of styles out there; more than likely you can find one that’s comfortable AND decent.  It’s not that hard, if you care to make the effort.  

@FauxBoho:  From the looks of this picture it doesn’t seem like you have a lot to worry about – it’s like the poster above who said it’s more of an issue if you have B+ cups.  (Not meaning to offend just pointing it out – I have B-Cish cups and would look kind of loose and “swaying in the breeze” in the dress you’re wearing there)  

I think if you can do braless without being distracting, then go for it – it’s just that most women I don’t think can pull it off without looking really sloppy and messy.  My two cents.

@DaisyBelle:  This is my exact point. I don’t have big boobs so I’m not wearing a bra just because someone thinks it’s immoral.

Personally, I find visible nipples more provacative and distracting than most “immodest” forms of dress (short hemlines, lots of cleavage, etc.) To my mind, it’s the equivalent of a guy walking around with a tent in his pants (also a perfectly natural bodily function, but not appropriate for public display). If they show while you’re wearing a bathing suit or something, it’s not a big deal–most swimwear doesn’t leave much to the imagination anyway, and expectations are different at a pool or beach. But in normal settings (the office; the grocery store; going out to dinner) I don’t think it’s appropriate.
