The first rule for going braless is to love your boobs and be confident. The underwear industry have warped our ideas about what breasts are “supposed” to look like. Without a bra, breasts will hang lower and be less centered and less round than they would with a bra. Although, these changes may be less noticeable in smaller breasts or breasts that have been surgically altered.
Therefore, if you go braless and your boobs hang lower than they normally do, it’s not because they’re too small or too big, or imperfect, it’s simply because you’re not wearing a bra, period.
If people stare at you, stare right back.
If you are new to going braless, you may just be more aware of your surroundings or even projecting your anxieties about your bra situation onto other people — just because you know you are not wearing a bra doesn’t mean everyone else does, especially if you are relatively covered up. Just say YOLO and go on your merry, braless way.
Use pasties to prevent your nipples from showing through your clothes.
Paper or cloth pasties are great under thicker fabrics, although the hard edges and opaque coloring can make them stand out under thinner fabrics and lighter-colored garments. Silicone pasties are more expensive, but work under any garment, particularly sheer and lightweight fabrics.
They are thicker and more opaque in the center, thinning out toward the edges to create a seamless look on your body when viewed through clothing.
Tape them up
Avoid accidental nip slips by taping skimpier garments directly to your body. The pros use strips of toupee tape along the necklines of garments to keep them from gaping, but tape can only do so much. It is essential that your clothes fit properly so they don’t move around on your body, which can make even the strongest tape come unstuck.
Find the perfect fit
Tape is no substitute for fit. Seriously, people, a trip to the tailor will do more to prevent a nip slip than any amount of tape. Reduce uncomfortable bouncing around by only going braless in fitted, structured clothing, the tighter the better.
The larger your chest is, the tighter your clothing needs to be in order to keep your breasts in place without a bra. There is no boob magic that will make large, unsupported breasts stay perfectly still (unless you get surgery, which comes with loads of complications).
A lot of brands make tape bras, but, most times these tapes do not last on their own, especially if you’ve got a large breasts. Surgical tape is strong enough to lift your breasts and hold them in place without a bra, but it is also a lot of pain in to get off. So why not mix tapes with tight fit for the best result!
However, if a set of ‘bouncing twins’ is what you actually want, then loose the tape!
