To Wear a Sports Bra everyday?
AryaStarkWolf · 15/04/2021 11:44
For the past week I've been wearing sports bras rather than normal bras during the day, they're so much more comfortable I don't know why I've only decided to do this now in my 40's. Is it OK to do this or are you not supposed to for any reason?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I would live in sports bras! They are the most comfortable thing in the world, would only take mine off for bed if I could!
I think it's ok, but the problem is they are not always the best match with some of the clothes. They tend to be thicker so take slightly longer to wash and dry (even if I just bang mine in the washing machine, but apparently you shouldn't)
If you are so use to the comfort and support, having to wear something else will be a shock.
I do try to find bras as comfy, I don't wear non-comfy clothes or shoes are a rule.

Oh good tip, thanks I mean, I suppose they're not going to go under every outfit properly but atm I'm wearing jumpers or hoodies most days anyway

I did this for a while and couldn't fathom why my neck was getting sore...they hold you differently so aren't good for wearing non stop, no. I've switched to bralettes which are super comfy but not so strong, so they don't affect you in the same way as a sports bra

I disposed of all my underwired bras before Christmas, having had an epiphany, and now live in sports bras, bralettes and crop tops.
I am genuinely baffled by how much of my life (I'm 42) I spent wearing stupid, restrictive underwear when there was no reason for it.
(See also: stockings, garters, corsets etc)
Do men habitually wear ridiculously tight, testicle-squeezing pants or do they just wear clothes they find comfortable?

I always wear a sports bra. I get a size bigger than I am so I'm not squeezed. Can't tolerate bras AT ALL. It's a real sensory issue for me! As a pp said, blokes would never tolerate being squeezed to the point of discomfort! I've had the odd comment in the past when I've disclosed my devotion to the sports bra along the lines of 'doesn't give boobs a nice shape' etc. Who fucking cares! If someones looking at the shape of my boobs they either like them, or they are judgemental cunts who can't have much going on in their lives!

I'm not sure I've ever really worn a bra, actually. Maybe a little bit in my teens, but otherwise I just wear crop-top bras every day. I have about seven in a color that matches my skin tone and seven in black. I find that they go under pretty much anything and as a teacher they're very useful since you can wear lower cut tops and it just shows through like a vest would. Living in Asia cleavage is not as culturally acceptable, so crop-top bras are also very good for the summers here. I won't even buy crop-tops with bra-style straps. Comfort all the way, tyvm.
