As someone with ridiculously large boobs, I couldn't do it. Going without a bra does actually hurt, especially when I'm doing physically demanding things or activities where I'm hunched over (sewing). Beyond that, I tend to let them freeeeee.

I'm a DDD cup, but don't have the same problem with pain. My girls are free anytime I'm at home.

I wish I was brave enough to ditch the bra totally, except maybe for when I'm riding my bicycle.

Usually I am not on this forum, but I stumbled upon this thread on the overview page and thought, gee, this sounds interesting

I agree, girls should never even start to wear bras, so they won't need them later on, either. Seems like one of those odd female automatisms like wearing high heels, make-up and what not...
With all those flat women these days I have always wondered what the bra is supposed to do, other than merely hide something that is barely present in the first place

Duplicate thread.

But regardless, I'm a GG. I'll go ahead and continue wearing a bra. Not all of us are A cups.

Well, mine aren't big but I hate to go braless because I find it incredibly irritating when materials rubs my nips. And when I'm out and about I prefer to have some "shape". I'm a gal of the 60's, too, but have never been impressed with the braless idea.

Someone tell all of the designers and manufacturers of tailored clothing. They'll need to adjust their patterns. Also, those who are uneven are basically obligated to go under the knife. Also, all of you who experience pain when your breasts bounce during exercise are to be dismissed as data that didn't fit someone's predetermined conclusions.

One study does not constitute literature, nor is it basis for making sweeping recommendations.
