The No Bra Phenomenon: Why We Love Going Topless! #FreeTheNipple

Last updated by Katie M.

While the one-piece jersey is coming back in force, we see the no bra trend is definitely also on the rise, and we’ve got coronavirus lockdowns to thank for that. Our boobs have never felt freer and are living their best lives under our t-shirts and layers of loungewear, but does that mean we should expose them on the beach too? In any case, long live this wind of freedom that blows gently on our boobs.

Why I like to go topless

Going topless is becoming less and less popular and there are many good reasons for that, but let’s face it, there’s nothing better than tanning topless.

For or against toplessness?

In the 60s, being topless on the beaches of Saint-Tropez was trendy, so much so that topless tanning was almost the norm in the 80s and 90s. Now the era has changed, and we see less and less women daring to whip off their tops. From fear of being harassed or fears for one's health, we all have our reasons for keeping our breasts away from the glaring sun rays.

On the other hand, if you sunbathe on the beach, there is as much risk in exposing your breasts as there is in exposing your stomach. A good sunscreen will always do the trick. And then, we are not going to hide it, the tan marks left by swimsuits don’t exactly make for the cutest look.

Wave goodbye to your complexes!

I must have been about 20 years old the first time I went topless. In fact, I was just really fed up with seeing those two white breasts in the shower. I had always had a problem with my, mini boobs, but it was at this point that I realized that if I could share my naked body with someone, then I shouldn’t be ashamed of my anatomy. I finally stopped worrying about what other people thought of my and decided instead to give them an eye full.

Today, if I tan topless, it's not to turn on the man reading under the umbrella next to me or to avoid people ending up with unsightly white patches on my chest, no it’s because I like it. I like the feeling of freedom.

I hate wearing a bra and always have. So much so that one day at work, I had to go to the bathroom to take it off because it was making me so uncomfortable. It was so sore, and yet it fit me well. So, when I top it off, I felt good and free and on the beach it's the same. I like the feeling of not being hindered. Not having a knot putting pressure on my neck, a strap that goes into my shoulder or a wire in the ribs. And above all, I’ve learned to love my breasts, just as they are.

>>>> How can I learn to accept my body and love myself?

In toplessness, I believe and adhere

Yes, when I'm topless on the beach, I feel very womanly. A mini Femen, but still! No one seems to be offended by the fact that men put their entire torso on show, nipples included, whether they are hairy, fat, skeletal or very muscular. So, I, as a topless woman, want to say no to the patriarchy and its demands. I now decide to refuse to hide my body and my supposed sexuality.

Of course, my idealistic thoughts are often shattered when I’m confronted by unwanted stares, but after all, whether we are on the beach, in the subway or in the street, the glances are always there, the thoughts and insults too. Street harassment exists no matter how we dress.

Boobs just aren’t (that) erotic...

If I like being naked so much, then why aren’t I a nudist? Quite simply because I distinguish boobs and genitals. I have absolutely nothing against nudists, but I could never tan naked because I place my vagina is an intimate realm, and my breasts aren’t.

Anyway, the problem is not really our boobs. They are exposed everywhere, all the time, on social media, in magazines... no, the issue is the nipple and more particularly the female nipple, which is unfair and sexist! Why does a woman’s nipple have to be portrayed as a sexual object?

Topless

This summer again, I will go topless on the beach, it will be my little revolutionary act and my way to re-appropriate my body. After all, no one is better placed than me to tell me where my complexes and modesty should lie.

Editor's note – Shirtless everywhere!

Like the Femen, a woman with her breasts exposed in public can be condemned. However, at the beach, being topless is still tolerated yet at the same time, many seaside towns also prohibit men from walking shirtless, away from the beach
