Should I wear a bra at school?

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.


The decision to wear a bra or not is a personal one. It’s natural to want to make sure your chest is protected and supported. But it’s also good to remember that you’re allowed to make your own decisions about what you wear. No one else should be able to tell you whether or not bras are necessary for school. However, if you do want to wear one then go right ahead!

No, you don’t have to.

You don’t have to wear a bra. It’s your body, so you get to decide.

But before you start wearing one without a second thought, here are some of the pros and cons of going braless:

  • Pros: You’ll never have to worry about “wardrobe malfunctions.” Plus, no one will be able to tell if your nipples are perky or puffy (unless they’re using x-ray vision).
  • Cons: Your boobs may look saggy—and even worse than that, there could be an embarrassing nipple slip (or two!) when you’re not paying attention. Some people even think that if girls don’t wear bras their breasts will get bigger over time because they’re not getting squished by straps all day long! But maybe that’s just wishful thinking?

But if you do want to, go for it.

If you don’t want to wear a bra, that’s absolutely fine. If you do, go for it! Just remember that your comfort level is important.You shouldn’t be pressured into wearing a bra if you don’t want to.

There’s nothing wrong with either option. Just make sure it makes you feel good about yourself and confident in what’s underneath those clothes!

It’s probably more comfortable not to wear one.

You should wear a bra if you want to, but it’s not required. Wearing a bra can be uncomfortable, especially if you have to wear one for long periods of time. Bra straps can dig into your shoulders and back, leading to chafing and skin irritation. Bra straps are also difficult to remove quickly in case of an emergency (like during a fire drill).

These straps can be hot and sweaty when worn in warm weather or during exercise classes like P.E., which means that they could irritate sensitive skin on your back and shoulders even more than usual. Finally, bras are expensive! Also, if your school allows them in the dress code then it might be cheaper just going with what works best for you instead of spending money on something that may not fit right or cause discomfort over time.

If you have larger breasts, it may be easier for them to sit comfortably in a bra.

If you have larger breasts, it may be easier for them to sit comfortably in a bra. Also, if your breasts are large enough, you will likely find that wearing a bra is more comfortable than not wearing one. You can also try wearing a sports bra if you want to go without the traditional undergarment.

In addition to the fact that they’ll feel better without a bra and won’t attract any attention from fellow students or faculty members (unless they’re looking at your chest), this style can also help prevent back pain: “Sports bras are known for their supportive structure,” says Dr. Zaher Sahloul of Chicago’s NorthShore University HealthSystem’s MacNeal Hospital & Health Network, who has studied women’s bodies and exercise extensively over his career as an MD/PhD candidate sponsored by American Heart Association Leadership Development Award Program since 2012 – including being named one of TIME Magazine’s most influential people online in 2019!

Don’t let anyone tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear.

You are the only one who has the right to decide what to wear. No matter how old you are, if someone tells you that your outfit is inappropriate or that it’s “too revealing,” listen to them and then tell them why that isn’t true. If an adult is making you feel bad about yourself for any reason, there’s probably something wrong with them and not with you.

Don’t let anyone tell you what to do, ever!

It may make your chest feel more secure and protected.

When you wear a bra, it might make your chest feel more secure and protected. It can also help prevent sagging breasts and back pain.

If you’re worried about getting breast cancer, wearing a bra may help prevent breast tissue from moving around too much. This will make it easier for cells to grow in new places (and possibly become cancerous) if they get caught up in the movement of your breasts when they’re not supported by a bra.

In addition to preventing the growth of new cancers, wearing bras can also help with other issues that come with having small breasts: they reduce nipple pain; they provide support during exercise; and they keep nipples from rubbing against clothing if you’re not wearing anything else underneath your shirt (like sports bras).

Make your own decision about what to wear.

Ultimately, there’s no one right answer to this question. It’s important not to let anyone else dictate what you wear—whether it be your parents or friends at school who try to get you to conform.

If you decide that wearing a bra is something that makes you feel good and comfortable, then go for it! You should never feel obligated or pressured into doing anything that doesn’t make sense for your body type or personal style.

The same goes for choosing not to wear a bra: if going braless is something that makes sense for your lifestyle and self-image, then do it! That said, if the idea of going without makes you feel uncomfortable (or even just plain weird), don’t do it just because someone else tells you that they think all girls should do so as well.


I think it’s great that you’re considering your options and asking questions like these. There’s no one right answer for everyone, but hopefully this post helped you think about the things to consider when making a decision about whether or not to wear a bra at school.
