The PERKS of Going Bra(less)

Today’s post is very important to me because of it’s power in my own life.

For the past 4 months I can probably count on 2 hands how many times I’ve worn a bra. #freethenipple It’s been THE BEST. I will say, it’s something I wanted to do for a while but felt self conscious about. If you’re not ready to let it all out in public, you can still get the benefits during down time in the comfort of your home.

Setting aside some intentional time to take care of your boobies will add to their health, wellbeing, and give you an extra dose of self love.

In addition to these tips you should visit your doctor for regular check ups, self screen at home, eat a diet high in nutrients, get your sweat on regularly, and manage your stress levels.

1. Take Time Away From The Old Cup & Wire

Benefits of spending more time out of your bra include:

better circulation

more comfort

no restrictions

way less boob sweat in the summer

freeeedom

2. Massage Yo Self

In addition to letting the girls out of the cage, I started practicing regular self breast massages. This doesn’t have to be a sexual thing, just an act of self care. Some benefits include:

decreasing edema/lymphedema

relieving premenstrual congestion or swelling of the breast

decreasing upper back and shoulder pain

creating a feeling of well being and induce relaxation

enhancing your relationship with your body

Here are steps I followed to get started. It’s nice to have a little guidance, but always follow your intuition and do what feels right for you.

3. Get Naked, Girl

This last step was uncomfortable for me when I tried it a few years ago, but now it provides daily self love & confidence. (Because confidence is a daily choice… but that’s another blog post.)

When you wake up in the morning, after your shower, before bed (whatever time floats your boat).. stand in front of the mirror completely naked and smile at yourself. Look into your eyes and say something nice. Dance around, be silly..just take some time to appreciate your body. If you’re feeling bold, and have the private space, get outside & let the sun hit your lady parts too. You’d be surprised how much a simple action like this can change your life.

Whether you try all of this or leave the post thinking I’m crazy, the big message I want you to take away is this.. LOVE ON YOUR BOOBIES and every other part of yourself daily. You’re worth it.
