Why Do Naturist Girls Wear Bras By Liberty Braless:
Naturist Women and Bras – “Why do naturist women wear bras?” is a question that has been around for quite a while, girls tending to have a love-hate relationship with the garment in question. The replies to this question are complex, but why should it be of special interest to nudists? While comprehending the dangers of generalizing, naturists are usually more aware of their body and to spend more time unclothed. So we might expect them to be less wedded to things like a bra. Yet, naturists are inclined to move in two worlds, naturist and fabric, and because of perceived stigma to naturism, they regularly go to some lengths to keep the two separate.
The bra has many parts in women’s lives. It was initially conceived instead to the corset as women became more active openly in the early twentieth century. It was mainly a cover, and among the first models was just two handkerchiefs sewn together by a corner to make two diamond contour breast covers. As the undergarment industry became a multibillion dollar international industry numerous means were found to marketplace bras to girls – function, icon, privacy, fashion statement, allure and maybe most significant of all, necessity.

Among the promised functions of the bra is to ‘support.’ If naturists appear to want little support when bare, why would they want support when textiled? The notion of support is obviously entirely fictional. Whether evolutionist or creationist it is difficult to believe the human female was created in ways that required her to have her breasts cantilevered to prevent losing them, or damaging them. Breasts are nicely supported, attached to the chest wall by a broad base and by a skin cover. In fact, what the bra does is elevate the breast to a horizontal position, mirroring pubescent breasts, therefore throwing the entire weight onto the back, neck and shoulders, sometimes with serious health consequences.
In the search for new markets, producers, having used every colour, shape, style and cloth, developed a new thought. Possibly, they wondered, they could be persuaded to buy yet more bras to cover every time of the day and action, and thus the sports bra was created. Breasts move with exercise they said, which is not an extremely surprising finding. The next step was to argue that this was unwelcome. Moving breasts might draw attention to you personally, and worse might really damage these organs, hence girls must command their breasts with scientifically’ proven products. In practice breast motion is not that important, being good-anchored and usually firm, and most sports bras do little to reduce movement .

Naturists are generally associated with wholesome outdoor, physically active lifestyles, and for many, playing sports in the nude comes naturally. The fact that naturists usually are not afflicted with damaged breasts raises serious questions about the justification for the sports bra.
We have been seeing a progression towards more top freedom lately, and if it continues, it is a serious risk to the lingerie industry.
Also, nudists aren’t by nature unduly modest, but by simultaneously moving in a dominant fabric world they might internalize those values and possibly overcompensate to protect their hidden naturist lives. The modesty argument for bras is inherently contradictory. While supplying cover’ and disguising the real contours and elements of the breast, they’re also sold as items that accentuate the breasts, and as sexual baits.
Given that that there is no societal or scientific logical for a bra, that there are important worries of harmful effects, and that they’re expensive, uncomfortable and seldom healthy, one might expect them to go down the historical route of many earlier garments like corsets. Nevertheless given the extreme advertising and societal pressures this is unlikely to occur in the immediate future. Two factors in women’s lives and health might make a difference though – raising topfreedom, and by expansion normalizing nudism and removing the stigma that creates an existence of two isolations.
What do my female naturist readers think? Are bras crucial? Do you go ? Can you run or play sports totally unclothed or don a sports bra?
