I have absolutely no idea why women wear bras?

Disclaimer. 🙂 These are the private musings of a middle aged Englishman, me Andrew, also note this Post contains NO nudity, call it my final ‘Just For Fun’ Post. (Maybe 😀 ) and please remember I have a good heart and mean no disrespect.

Two reasons for writing this evening, my Followers already understand I’m slightly obsessed with boobs well least I’m honest! Jo knows I’m currently single at present and I miss squeezing a breast :D, the second reason is I enjoy Cosmic Colette’s YouTube stream and she was kind enough reply to my Comment, even laughed, truth be known hardly any YouTuber’s reply to video comments, why? Btw I have asked permission and she is fine with my Post.

Colette’s YouTube (link left) is themed fun entertainment travelling veganism body image bullying relationships mental health and much much more 🙂

My YouTube is andschannll

I thought I’d write something a little more light hearted today after my rather sombre and serious previous 10 Downing Street posts, truth be known politics is a dirty business and I’m glad not to be a part of it…………………… then again ‘big sigh’ we are all intrinsic to politics 😦

Enough politics!

Breasts and bras!

I’ve had the question ‘Why do women wear bras’ playing on my mind this past few days, such a weird contraption dreamt up by a bridge engineer (a man) in ‘ye olde’ Victorian England, so the story goes, mind you the design resembles a suspension bridge, seems logical or maybe “fake news?”

A woman I uhmm used to be ‘friends’ with likened wearing a bra similar to ‘unprintable’, the soreness from underwire’s were truly horrendous, she was one of those girls who’d unclip her bra, give a huge sigh of relief and say “thank God that’s off! Now I can breath!” 

I don’t think the video maker Cosmic Colette would mind me sharing her YouTube video, hell I might even tell her I’m sharing her “I haven’t worn a bra in one year!” video because I enjoyed watching and seeing as I’ve commented below her videos before……

So what did you think to her video? She’s lovely (attached 😦 ) and I’ll be honest and agree I can’t understand why women wear bras, they look SO much better without one, in fact Colette’s views and opinions seem pretty compelling reasons why not to wear one!

……. and if you’re saying to yourself ‘so tell me Andrew why an earth are you so interested in bras all of a sudden?’, well think back to my post Helen’s Striptease, the moment where my middle aged neighbour Helen unclipped her bra, well the seed of a post was born there and then……….. plus I’ve gotten nothing better to do this afternoon and boobs are fabulous!

Incidentally I don’t wish to offend anyone and because I’m a perfect gentleman I’m attempting to be both serious and sensitive at the same time and certainly don’t wish to come across as condescending, call this hopefully fun and amusing.

braless22

After watching the fascinating video where the lady gives her personal reasons for going braless I decided to do a little research of my own (science fan me) and where do you go if you want to find out a fact or two? Why the internet of course, dig deep enough and it’s surprising what you might learn!!

I Googled ‘reasons not to wear a bra’ this evening and happened across research conducted at a French University, turns out a sports Doctor named Jean-Denis Rouillon spent fifteen years studying the effect bras had on 330 women aged 18-35 then came to the earth shattering conclusion bras are useless!! A bold statement if ever there was one and as you can imagine he created one hell of a worldwide Sh**storm media frenzy!

Fifteen years is a long time to research bras and their effects on boobs, a study which concentrated on understanding ladies yearly breast changes when a bra is worn regularly against never worn and his preliminary results suggested, contrary to popular belief, when a young girl wears a bra from an early age, the bra doesn’t support the chest or reduce back pain or prevent breast sagging, in-fact ‘medically, physiologically and anatomically’ breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity………… the Professor went on to say when interviewed by French media “supported breasts get saggier over time”.

Here’s a useless piece of information for you, many years ago a lady by the name of Rachel (blonde attractive and age 25) and myself were undressing in her bedroom, a casual relationship, well without being indiscreet she was a ‘big girl’ and there we were sitting on her bed together and cometh the time she reaches around her back unclipping the strap of a rather large bra holding rather large boobs, and at the same moment her underwear garment was removed her boobs dropped ‘a mile’, that was a shock and a half I can tell you…. but don’t worry I’m NOT being disrespectful or abusive, both Rachel and her boobs looked absolutely stunning, so very feminine and sucking saggy empty boobs is wonderful……. just thought you’d be interested to know!

Where was I?

Bra research!

Returning to that French sports Doctor. According to his research, young women’s breasts were firmer, ligaments stronger, more toned due to extra breast tissue all because they never wore bras, and better news was to come, women who did NOT wear a bra experienced a 7 millimetre (that’s 0.3-inch) lift in their nipples compared with the women who wore bras……… pretty compelling research and now you’re wondering as to the reasons why?

Well according to the Doctor, he claimed bras have a way of slowing down blood circulation, which therefore reduced breast tone over time so the reasons are as simple as that! Some time after a British Doctor confirmed the research stating:

“For younger women, not wearing a bra will lead to increased collagen production and elasticity, which improves lift in a developing breast.” 

Hmm, I’m wondering whether the more mature woman, who’d worn a bra all her life, could suddenly burn her bra and get away with it? Then again do having children rubbish all his data?

One note of caution, the research team did add an important caveat stating women in the French study were not a representative of the population as a whole, which seems right and fair, mind you interesting research all the same!

:/ perhaps the more mature woman should keep her bra on!

To add further weight to the no bra argument if you write why I went braless’ into YouTube’s search engine Google will ‘so I’m told’ display hundreds of videos made by hundreds of women sharing their no bra life stories similar to Collette’s…………. what was life like before YouTube?

So ladies if you’re brave enough comment as to why you wear a bra? Support? Modesty? Attracting men or women or teenage (16+) girls or boys.

Braless 2Referring to the photo opposite, in my humble opinion going braless can be classy tasteful and yes elegant. I live in the University City of Oxford, a City of ‘year on year’ eternal youth, and every day I’ll see female ladies and students go braless :/ fine by me. However I guess for any of you ladies with exposure on the mind  I’d agree with you braless, for obvious reasons, does attract a little more attention, but having said that if more women threw their bras in the bin then both men and women from my parent’s generation might say “what’s all the fuss about?”

So you are maybe asking “what conclusions have you drawn Andrew?” 🙂 None at all except ladies be yourselves, if you like to wear bras ‘wear’, if you prefer not to wear bras ‘don’t’, it’s all good to me………….. but I prefer the ‘don’t wear’ simply because a lady’s natural profile is more feminine flattering and beautiful.

Please comment? Hmm should I stop these ‘amusing’ types of posts and please remember I have a good heart and mean no disrespect 🙂

3. A hate crime? Really? You’re kidding me!

🙂 What is the World coming to if you cannot legally stare at a woman’s boobs?

I’d better very quickly qualify that question by saying if you’re going to glance in her direction she must be over age 18 and fully clothed!

So is there any harm looking at her boobs? Enjoying a female’s figure? And at what point does a stare become sexual assault? At what point does noticing appreciating an attractive figure become wrong?

She dresses for male attention, doesn’t she? (Please bare with me!)

Today has possibly been the hottest day this year in the UK, so with sun and ‘fashion’ in mind you may have guessed where this Post is leading :/ Hmm :/

Anna+Friel+Actress+Anna+Friel+nips+out+stage+Kz0w0Mcrnsml

Anna Friel is looking stunning these days isn’t she and I’m old enough to remember her as the good looking schoolgirl in the long running soap opera ‘Brookside’ or better affectionately known as ‘Brookie’! I’m not a soap fan but you have to say Anna’s still a handsome attractive woman at 40, confident, beautiful, sexy………..  and I see her bra 😉

I might add this picture of Anna’s see-through blouse and visible underwear is selected not just because she’s gorgeous.

Oh yes reasons to be happy! Travelling to work by bus is usually torture, slow traffic, people coughing sneezing in wintertime however today’s journey was notably enjoyable, the sun was shining in fact unbearably hot and consequence many ladies were wearing summer dresses, crop tops, sheer blouses and more worringly female students wearing tight fitting tee shirts, but I wonder at what point does admiring an attractive profile become wrong? Become a crime?

So the bus now full winds it’s way through Country lanes into Oxford where first stop excited students alight at the College only to be replaced by shop assistants going farther into Town , I just couldn’t avert my gaze watching from afar, I didn’t know where to look all these beautiful yes scantily clad women and hold that thought!

Btw what’s with this under garment call the tee shirt bra? My Grandmother would have been horrified with all this underwear on show!! And I’m not joking, she’d tut tut just at the sight of a visible bra strap delicately perched on bare shoulders!

Sheer blouses are my favourite ladies garment, take sophisticated Anna looking so sexy in her pink see through top and wow you can see the out line of her bra, my eye line’s drawn through opaque silk as if by a magnate, I just cannot stop myself looking! So ladies is Anna inciting a crime by wearing clothes so revealing?

Again hold that thought.

Let’s return to my bus journey, I’ll leave the fact a ladies boobs bounce when the bus hits a speed bump in the road too quickly, oh yes us guys are watching and waiting, well I am! Err I’ve gotten distracted! AND I’m going staying well clear of the ‘slut shaming’ debate, you know whether a lady is ‘asking for trouble’ if she dresses overtly sexual, I’ll not go there, except ask the question is admiring the female bosom wrong? Maybe soon!

Ok OK yes I’ve possibly been sexually over gratuitous with descriptions so far, some verging on misogyny but I’ve written overtly sexual for a reason, don’t judge me too harshly I love ladies whether age 18 or 44, slender or fuller figure!

Sarah’s story

Now I hope after reading my exaggerated wordplay the image pictured across your mind is of a ladies prominent boobs visible through tight clothing, yes? Well as of last week a guy who stares at a bust bosom boobs for tooo long could be guilty of a hate crime. Oh yes. Don’t believe me? Nottinghamshire Constabulary has just announced staring at a ladies breasts can be classed as a hate crime alongside hatred of race, religion, sexual orientation and colour of the skin. Admittedly the Police Commissionaire speaking at her Press conference was more specific, she said suggestive remarks, a wolf whistle would have to accompany a stare in order to bring about a prosecution, however no getting away from the fact overtly looking at boobs is now a hate crime. Really?

Bloody hell I’m gonna be sent to jail now!!!!!

Only joking!

Confused? We in the UK are, the tabloid newspapers have gone apoplectic, wolf whistling builders are angry and the general public is left thinking ‘isn’t Police time better spent catching paedophiles rather than men enjoying a ladies boobage’.

Btw I unashamedly look at breasts through women’s clothing, absolutely guilty as charged! And a prominent nipple will nearly send me into orgasm!

Back to said Press Conference, alongside the Policewoman sat a young lady called Sarah who helped bring about this change in the law, though her case was a little more specific. A good while ago she was standing at a tram stop and this guy on the other side of the tracks was staring at her boobs, she said making her feel uncomfortable, and as they both boarded the tram he commented “nice boobs” then proceeded to stare at hers for the rest of the journey and of course she was terribly upset.

Ok this case maybe a clear cut ‘hate crime’ under the new rules, but every case will be different and varying in severity. The Policewoman basically said a prosecution would definitely have been brought for the remark alone, however I had the impression Sarah was more angry with his stare, was he enjoying her femininity? Or was he a sadist knowingly trying to make her feel uncomfortable, the latter is clearly wrong, but he stared all the same!

So staring at boobs is now a hate crime? Hopefully common sense will be applied but I can’t help thinking, knowing how high sexual abuse is on the political agenda, this Law will be applied rigorously and across the land not just Nottingamshire.

Back to sunny days sitting on the bus and I’ll admit to being guilty as charged when it comes to err boob observation, I glance, I look and maybe out right stare when the lady turns her head, and when I’m walking on the pavement and a lady passes by I’ll maybe take a sideways glance, lingering look, or maybe a brief stare but being honest women don’t seem to be offended and how on earth are Police going to enforce this new hate crime?
