Which terrifies me, because she's rather, er, large, and it's as though two watermelons have deflated and are laying under her shirt to the sides. Occasionally, when she raises her hand to wave, if her shirt isn't long enough...well....let's just say she could use some band-aids (reference the earlier post!)
unless you are flat chested or have implants, a bra is definitely needed for daily living. seems your chest is more visible and 'OUT THERE' than your pants area. some of you MUST have very sensitive "pants areas" because i feel no pain from going, how you say (?) commando?

I do wear a bra everyday, except a few times in the summer when it's over 100 degrees. I've worn one since the baby's sprouted and most of the time wear one to bed. I agree with momof2dfw, my puppies are still perky even after two kids.
hmmmm, that is very interesting. hmmm, maybe it is because i had twins and gained almost 100lbs during the pregnancy that i am a bit saggy? hmmm, maybe i should wear a bra to bed?
NOT!!!!!
talk about uncomfortable!

Trivia
The terms "going commando" or simply "commando" are often used in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain to refer to wearing no underwear under the trousers. The term originated with American soldiers who preferred not to wear underwear in field conditions because of its tendency to retain sweat and the additional laundry burden. The terms are analogous to the Scottish military term "regimental" referring to wearing no underwear under the kilt.

Here is another interesting read about how "commando" came about. It also discusses briefly the reasoning why the Scots do not wear "regiment" under their kilts.

And one talking about the American armed forces "going commando" and why and the deal w/ women and "commando" and bras.

I can't not wear panties (always cotton! There are attractive, comfy cotton undies out there). On the days I've forgotten to bring a pair to the gym, I've had to sit through an eight-hour day at work experiencing some unfortunate chafing problems from the seams on my trousers.
