and advice on choosing a bra
where, how to wear or not wear a bra.....By
lot of women have approached MYNIPPON with questions related
to how to choose a bra, where to shop for
where/how to wear or not wear a
bra. We organized a
panel discussion and below are excerpts from the discussion.
I have a small bust and frequently donít wear a bra.
This is mostly OK except during cold weather when I have
some embarrassing situations.
What causes this, and is there any way to keep it from
happening or any way to tell without looking at oneself.
I don't mind if people know I'm not wearing a bra, but I
get embarrassed when I "show" and they stare.
Well most of the time this happens if the temperature
is a bit low. Additionally, when you are dressed
without a bra
whatever fabric is in touch will rub more
frequently (as opposed to a bra which does not stimulate all that
much since it is rather tight) and cause the same stimulation that
you will experience during touch. Hence the result, without even your realizing it. So there is really
not much you can do about stopping it from happening.
And even if you realized what was going on, there is no
way you can do anything immediately. The simple and most desirable solution is to wear a bra, of
course. However, if you don't wear a bra, you can wear, for
chemise? Or just wear a top that is made from a
thick rather than a light fabric.

does your lingerie tell about you?)
Yes, I know that if the temperature is low this will
happen automatically and I try to be careful.
This generally happens when you walk from outside to a
store where they keep the air-conditioning really strong.
However, I have also heard that it can happen by looking at an attractive man in a public
place, for example. Is
this the reason why men are so curious to look at us?
Do they think that they are the ones responsible for our
It is true that women
experience this due to visual stimulation but it is not so simple
as just looking at a cute
guy. Therefore, another man or woman would be naive to think that
it is because of his or her
that we want to mention is that many women simply have them very large
(or long, should we say) that either just cannot be hidden
even by a padded bra or they jut out. Depending on your size you have to determine
what bra you can wear, what fabric it has to be, and what type of
tops and blouses would work for you. Well-knitted
fabric is generally the best.
Light, high-quality cotton can be as sensitive as synthetic
fabrics like nylon and silk or satin and should be avoided.
The see-through bras that are manufactured from the thinnest
material are the worst because they are so flimsy. The same
applies for the tops too if they are made from a synthetic fabric.

and then take it off when you wish.

The reasons I stopped wearing a bra in the first place
was that most of the time it looked as if I was not wearing one
anyway, since my bust is so
I know that a lot of women can get away with this.
I usually wear somewhat tighter tops and light fabric
to keep mine in place but that made the problem worse.
How can you really tell beforehand if they are
show through a particular type of bra?
How many layers do you need?
I might add that highly
padded bras actually look unnatural.
Most women are not as precise as the
bra sizes that are
sold. In fact your size is never truly constant either - it can
change slightly for a variety of reasons (whether you have your
menstrual cycle, or how much water you drink, or how often you exercise,
etc.). So what should you do?
Thus, an A cup bra might feel too tight sometimes and a B cup bra
will feel loose. Consult with one of those bra
fitters that lingerie companies sometimes bring to lingerie
We have been told by some women that in cases like yours
they buy a larger size and then stuff the empty space with bra pads
(the ones that women use to show they are bigger than they
actually are) to give the right fit.

Is one fabric better than the other for the
bra and the
top? For example, I
have tried wearing a
camisole instead of a bra but most camisoles
are made of fabric that seems to defeat the whole purpose of wearing it.
Your Mom probably can attest to this but she probably grew up
wearing thick, cotton bras - that covered her completely
and on top of that she probably wore a rather loose
from another thick fabric. Maybe she or her friends even wore a chemise
(or something else) on top of the bra and then put on
their dress. Things are now different. A good brand bra today uses
hardly any fabric and is generally silk, lace, or some other soft
fabric (don't they keep talking about something that is barely
there???). Chemises, the kind your mother and grandmother wore, are
considered old fashioned and the ones that are sold today serve an
entirely different purpose. Thus,
women in todayís world have only limited choices though they can
always go to an inexpensive store and buy the cheapest bras
available. They do a
great job of hiding everything.
wear a bra or not)
Is it considered bad if people can tell you are not
wearing your bra? Of course my mother and I disagree on this.
She thinks that it is bad even if your bra straps show.
My next question is what if you are wearing a bra and still
they show. Is
that too considered indecent considering the fact that you have
taken all the precautions and it is now the fault of Nature.
After all we have no control over it.
Regarding if not wearing a bra is 'bad' - well it depends
on the situation. For
example, a lot of evening dresses are designed to be worn braless
and no one would even care. During summer months, most of the
tops/blouses etc. can be worn without a bra
and it is then that trouble happens
because the fabric is just too flimsy, but
people are far more forgiving of such instances. However, if
you are in a professional or formal situation, not wearing a bra
is considered unprofessional (of course it should also be clearly
apparent to other). The same applies to gatherings
of men and women - many of whom may not be your intimate friends. Would
you rather not invite any attention at all? Then make sure you
take all the precautions that we mentioned to Mary (wear a jacket,
scarf, wear a thick bra and a thick loose top, etc.).
Otherwise just enjoy the attention!
