Gun holsters.

Someone wrote…

I was devastated to learn that today I would have to wear a bra for the first time in months. My also genderqueer roommate told me that it’s easier to wear them if you think of them as gun holsters for your boobs. She was right.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Why “have to” wear one?

    Fellow bra-free here. Why would you *have* to wear a bra? Is there any chance you can appeal it, either legally or personally? No one has the right to tell you what underwear to wear…

    But that *is* a very cool way to think of it. And really, if I ever do need to tote a gun to go hunt vampires or some such, a bra would come in pretty handy…

    (My boobs actually get really uncomfortable if they’re not supported by a bra. Maybe it’s like that.)

    I love that idea. :D I often refer to mine as boob armor, as my braless partner often complains about the cold or scratchy shirts while my nipples stay safe and protected. But boob holsters are way more badass!

    The idea of a bra only bothers me when it’s some padded frilled contraption. I wear athletic bras that are more like tight cut-off tank tops. Not only are they a thousand times more comfortable than the bras you’d find in Victoria’s Secret, they compress your chest from movement and flatten it out a bit.

    I couldn’t imagine not wearing one as long as I have breats. I feel extreemely uncomfortable without one, even though my chest is fairly small.

    Softestbullet: I think of mine as armor too. :-D
