Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj decided to stop giving an eff (but I mean, did she ever?) and walked around on the set of The Ellen Show, wearing a small jacket that not only showed off the majority of her stomach but also basically all of her boobs because she wasn’t wearing a bra. When she made her appearance on The Ellen Show, she explained her actions by saying, “I don’t like bras. I hate bras. Don’t you? Bras are, like, the devil.”
That they are, Nicki. That they are. Look, I’m super appreciative of the fact that bras hold up my breasts and make them look better and give me support and all that, but at the end of the day… man, those things are annoying. I still wear them because I have to, but that doesn’t stop me from being annoyed about it. Why are they the absolute worst? I’ve got 10 reasons for you.
They easily dig into your skin and leave marks.
Even when they fit properly, bras can leave marks in your skin if you wear them for a really long time. Ugh.
Finding a proper fit can be so difficult and, anyway, almost every brand has different sizes and fits.
They only help to collect boob sweat.
Which is one of the worst feelings ever.
After a while, the underwire starts to poke out and it’s painful.
Somehow, this ONLY happens in the middle of the day when there is no way you change bras, so you just have to deal with this stabby feeling for hours.
Two words: Strapless bras.
Do I really need to elaborate?
Most of them are pretty expensive.
Every girl should have good bras because they’re obviously better than cheaper ones, but man, those things cost money.
You’re constantly adjusting them and then creepy dudes stare at you.
Somehow, the straps always manage to slide down your shoulders.
It’s awkward to fix them, but SO necessary.
Washing them is not easy. Not easy at all.
They have the potential to ruin your whole outfit idea.
If you can’t get away with no bra, wearing backless, very low-cut or even one-shoulder items gets that much more difficult. Also, if you want to wear white but don’t have a tan bra, WTF are you supposed to do?
Basically at the end of the day, you’re just like…
And it’s AMAZING.
Do you agree that bras are the worst? What are the other terrible things about bras? Which of these is the worst? Tell me in the comments.
