Why It's a Good Idea to Give #NoBraDay a Try

Summer style [1] is often associated with a looser interpretation of the public dress code, meaning bikini bottoms, playsuits, and more are fair game. This year, we noticed some ladies losing another layer, namely, their underwear.

A major street style development — less about the clothes and more, well, about what women are not wearing — took the fashion world by storm.

Going braless is definitely trendy, and it's also now part of a larger movement. Today, Oct. 13, has been christened #NoBraDay. The date was selected right in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness month in order to spread the word about the disease. The idea is that, by going braless, women will think about their breasts, and in so doing, give themselves a self-check or schedule an appointment for their mammogram.

It's a great cause, but going braless may be easier said than done. The au naturel look [2] is a pretty common occurrence in the model world and certainly in the fashion crowd, but with real women taking on the trend, it begs the question: would you do it, too?

Sure, you could wear a bra with a long-sleeved shirt, but she just proved you don't have to.

It's tricky finding a bra to fit with a fitted tank like this, but we'd recommend a good strapless to do the trick.

Even when you can wear a bra, you might just not want to.

She channeled the ease of a nightgown, even forgoing her undergarments.

Keeping it easy and breezy, sans bra.

A deep V doesn't always give room to wear a bra — that's the truth.
