A. It doesn’t say you have to stop wearing a bra. Feel free to bind yourself.
B. The thing about finding the ‘right-fitting’ bra is bullshit in my experience. When I had a fitting they sent someone who was so off I had to laugh in her face. ‘Looks like you’re a D’ (I’m a B+).
C. If it fits the way it should, it’s uncomfortable. Like high heels.
D. I don’t know what a “jumper” is, apparently; is this Brit for sweatshirt?
E. I think many of you are so used to the pain you don’t notice it anymore - or else you have very thick skin. There’s a definite stigma to showing nipple in public. But think about it — there are approved and unapproved displays of sexuality in our society. Cleavage OK, nipple not. Why? because it makes men have lustful feelings? So many people don’t even consider how arbitrary it is. Think men would go for it if we told them to cover their bulges under a layer of fabric and wire, cram their feet into pointy shoes on stilts and wear shorts that covered half their asses?
F. The average woman has proportionate breasts. The exceptions are artificially augmented or ‘bustier than usual.’ But my guess is MOST women wear them to hide their nipples, and I think that’s bizarre.
