The Boob Diaries #1

I gave up bras about 4 or 5 years ago. My boyfriend actually suggested that I stop wearing bras, and I thought he was crazy! I could never go braless. I didn’t want to walk around with people being able to see my nipples through my shirt! I shortly got over that mindset once I actually went out without a bra for the first time. It was so comfortable, and no one even noticed that I wasn’t wearing one (well, no one ever said anything to me about it). Ever since then, I’ve gone braless.


The main reason I stopped wearing bras is because they were uncomfortable and never fit correctly! But never did I think to go get fitted. The process seemed so long and unneccessary. So instead of giving bras one more chance by getting fitted, I just gave up bras all together.


I was really excited when the sustainable lingerie company, Lara Intimates, invited me to join the #TheBoobDiaries Project. Apparently, 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra. Lara Intimates is revolutionizing the bra industry, by providing a super easy online tool, where you can measure yourself to find your correct bra size and it only requires 2 measurements. Super easy! The video above is of me figuring out my measurements.


Stay tuned for The Boob Diaries #2, where I try on the bra in my measured size to see it actually fits. If it fits comfortably, who knows, I’ll probably give bras another chance.


Do you know your correct bra size?
