10 Reasons Wearing A Bra Is The Worst

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.

    This article is rubbish. I learnt the hard way that wearing bra is soooooo needed if you want to delay sagginess. Everyone said never wear a bra to sleep….ting ting ting, they lied….ALWAYS wear bra to sleep!!

    I have fought this problem for years. Thought I was the only one with this problem.
    good to know I”m not alone. Big boobs suck!!! just sayin.

  • nina judith

    i hate bras! they itch, make marks and shift and are totally uncomfortable!

    My problem is finding bras that fit. I’m not the bustiest girl (a little sparse actually, but I don’t mind), but I have a small rib cage. Honestly, the only bra I ever found that fit was a 30D (and it died last year), and good luck finding many of those. Most of the time I can’t even find a 32C, and end up getting a 34B in a fit of rage. In addition, I hate padded bras, which makes it even harder to find a bra I like. Accordingly, I just go without most of the time. As far as I can tell, no one has noticed.

    I’ve had to wear bras since I was about 12 years old. I’m 46 now, so I think I know a thing or two about them. You cannot just go into any store that happens to sell bras and pick out a “pretty” one and expect it to fit well and hold up in the wash. That just doesn’t happen. Quality bras, like the ones sold at major department stores or specialty lingerie shops, are typically more expensive, yes, but undoubtedly more comfortable and will last longer, provided you take proper care of them. There are bra fit “experts” at these stores who have been trained in knowing how a bra should fit and feel and you need to ask them to help you! NO ONE with a cup size bigger than AA looks good without a bra. Period. It’s tasteless and classless and should never happen. Medically speaking, it’s better to wear a bra during the day to cradle the breast muscles, then take it off at night when you go to bed, to give those muscles (and the rest of you) a welcome break. If your bras hurt you in any way or cause marks on your skin YOU ARE NOT WEARING THE RIGHT BRA. Bras should always be washed by hand (or on the gentle cycle in a lingerie bag) then hung to dry. Putting bras in the dryer not only ruins the padding (if there is any), but will also ruin any elastic in the bra. If you put your bras in the washing machine (on the gentle cycle), remember to reshape the padding or the bra cups by (again) gently stretching or smoothing the fabric then hang to dry. Good bras will last many months, maybe years. And one last thing – if you’re wearing a racerback top, wear a racerback bra or buy some plastic clips (they’re cheap) and DO NOT let those straps show. It’s very tacky, even though I see it all the time. Just sayin’ . . .

    They also show threw white clothing and people look at you like you are a sicko

      If you wear white clothing, buy a bra that best matches your skin color. It’s okay if people can TELL you’re wearing a bra, but not okay if they can SEE the bra through your clothes.

    This ties in with the “They’re to expensive” part. I had this bra that was 4 dollars so we could afford it. But it was SOOOOO ugly. I have really big boobs for my age. I am 13 and they are size 38 D. But this bra was like a grandma bra. One day at school I had to dress up because I had a volleyball game. I was running late so I grabbed a strapless dress and a see through short “jacket” thing to go on top of it. But at the end of the day in math class, the dress slipped down and everyone saw my ugly bra. UGH. Now I have these really cute bras. My favorite one is red with lacy flower designs on the top. I would rather my bra have not shown but since it did, I really wish it had been my red one 🙁

    When you wash a bra and the cup becomes forever deformed. THAT is another annoying thing

    • Jennifer

      Don’t put your bras in the washing machine unless you have them in a lingerie bag and the machine is on the “gentle” cycle. And always smooth out the padding before hanging the bras to dry. 🙂

    I agree!!!!
