  1. braless

    In Western society, since the 1960s, there has been a slow but steady trend towards bralessness among a number of women, especially millennials, who have expressed opposition to and are giving up wearing bras. In 2016, Allure magazine fashion director Rachael Wang wrote, "Going braless is as old as feminism, but it seems to be bubbling to the surface more recently as a direct response to Third Wave moments like #freethenipple hashtag campaign, increased trans-visibility like Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover ... and Lena Dunham's show Girls."Women choose to go braless due to discomfort, health-related issues, their cost, and for social reasons, often having to do with self-acceptance and political expression. Women have protested the physical and cultural restrictions imposed by bras over many years. A feminist protest at the 1968 Miss America contest is often seen as the beginning of the anti-bra movement, prompting manufacturers to market new designs that created a softer, more natural look.Bras are increasingly an issue for women and girls. In the past, women and school-age girls have been harassed for not wearing a bra. Women have also sued employers for both attempting to require them to go braless, and for harassment as a result of choosing to be braless. High school-age children were also disciplined and humiliated by administrators for going braless. Administrators and faculty were also criticized for failing to educate male students that girls should not be harassed or given undue attention because they are braless.
