Braless When Reporting On Live TV? 0
Shea Allen, a reporter of WAAY, an affiliate of ABC in Huntsville, Alabama, got trouble at work for admitting that she had gone braless during a live report. According to reports, Allen posted ten things on her personal blog titled “Confessions of a Red Headed Reporter”.
She was ordered to put the posts down, which she did. However, after some thoughts, she put it up again with a revised title: “No Apologies: Confessions of a Red Headed Reporter”. This incident made news, but the WAAY management would not comment on such “personnel” matter. Allen, for her part, was so surprised that something she posted on her personal blog and outside of the WAAY office would make her lose her job. Her co-workers, when asked, offered mixed reviews. Some said that Allen is a ticking time bomb while others praised her good performance, being trustworthy, and being dedicated to her job.
In an interview, Shea Allen said that she believes she was fired more because of the “braless” issue than the other nine confessions she made. What do you think? Is going braless during a live telecast sufficient ground to get sacked?
We have seen plenty braless photos of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Aniston, Lea Michelle, Khloe Kardashian, etc. These people can be very sensual and fearless of what people say about them. They can go braless to up their sexy image while showing off their toned tummies. They can show off more than what people expect of them and are brave to face the scandals of being braless. They can put their nipples in full display and don’t care if they become very distracting.
But TV reporter is not in show biz although being seen by millions, young and old, men and women. Maybe it is more appropriate that a woman reporter wear a bra for her job even if the company has no written policy about wearing a bra when reporting. If insisting go braless, a good cover up may be wearing a vest over blouse, or a camisole under. A good camisole prevents the breasts from bouncing around, and gives coverage to the nipples.
The choice to wear a bra or not is a woman’s preference. Some people do not feel comfortable in public when they are braless, while others never mind whether people say they’re “indecent”. But remember that even if you hate the bra, your job and some social occasions may demand that you wear one.
Nipple Bra, No-Bra-Look While Wearing a Bra? 0
Nipple bra was invented in the 70s that allows women to show erect nipples through their shirt. There were ads in which women's nipples were protruding, making it appear that they didn’t wear any bras. Nipple bra has built-in nipples that provide a sensual and cold-weather look, as the ads say.
Since its introduction, nipple bras have attracted lots of criticism. Even nowadays, it is still considered an extreme case to show nipples in public. So, why do you think anyone would want to purchase and wear a nipple bra? Here are some guesses.
The wearer is trying to attract attention and show the world that she is comfortable and confident with her body. This is a way of making sure that she is noticed. Or, simply because she just loves the nipple bra and thin blouse and doesn’t really care what people see and say about her lack of modesty.
It could be a total style screw up, a fashion mistake. This is what I always think whenever I notice that a girl’s nipples are visible. Even some celebrities become more famous for their bad choices of what they wear. A girl showing her nipples does not always suggest that she is out to seduce anyone, but rather a matter of fashion blunder. In this case, maybe it is a polite thing just pretending that you do not notice.
Perhaps the woman is not happy with her nipples. Nipples can vary in shape and size and point to different directions. Actually there are four types of nipples: (1) normal nipples erect themselves a few millimeters from the areola. During cold weather or when the woman is aroused, they go even further, (2) flat nipples need stimulation or a cold temperature to protrude, (3) puffy nipples are characterized by raised areola, and (4) inverted nipples are those that turn inward. If the inverted nipples have always been that way since the beginning, they could be not much of a problem – the nipple bra will help. However, if they turn inward only recently, it is probably better to have them checked up.
While a nipple bra can make a woman look sexy (it really depends on who sees it), we do not really think that it is a good way of getting a guy’s number. Just imagine the awkward situation once he finds out that the nips are not real?!!!!!!!!!
Peek-A-Boo Bra Is Making a Comeback 0
What is a peek-a-boo bra? It is a type of bra that reveals the maximum of the breasts, including the nipples. It is sometimes called the open cup bra. The peek-a-boo got its name from its style where the breasts peek from the bra cups. Its opening can be on the nipples or on the tits. Some women who wear peek-a-boo bras use nipple pasties or nipple covers.
This type of bras were made famous in the 90s by Tiffani Amber Thiessen. Then it went out of fashion. However, today we are beginning to see people who are taking risks with their fashion. Heidi Klum is an example. She was often spotted wearing a peek-a-boo bra some five or so years ago; and now you can see her again wearing one, either under a sheer blouse or a see through one. It’s not only Heidi Klum. There are also Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, and Lady Gaga who have been stepping out in just their bras, a skirt/pants, and boots or sandals.
Peek-b-boo bras used to be a fantasy costume. These undergarments were best worn during the evening and private parties, and were not seen as suitable for day wear. Only the celebrities wore them, however, today even the ordinary women who desire to fancy themselves are wearing peek-a-boo bras, and even during daytime. How fast the lingerie fashion revolves!
There are varying styles of peek-a-boo bras, with different colors and fabrics. You may consider adding one or two of them in your lingerie drawer for times when you need to wear one. You can choose from a wide variety some of which are decorated with laces, zippers and ribbons, or beads. You can have them with matching panties that have open crotch and accessories including garter belts, socks and others that can add to the spice. There are peek-a-boo bra sets that include a coat and a hat, and you’ll be certain that your look just becomes sexier.
However, peek-a-boo bras are not always welcome to some women who think that fashion is becoming trashier. These people see that even Pinterest boards are full of sexier, shorter, more revealing and inappropriate clothing and undergarments, including the peek-a-boo bras, the sheer tops and the see-through dresses, which could have been worn as an outer cover, they say.
Despite the negative comments, we cannot deny the fact that the peek-a-boo bra is making a comeback, and it is trending. Celebrity or not, the wearer definitely is proud to be seen hitting the streets with almost nothing left to the imagination of those who see them. Are you ready to embrace this trend?
Wearing a Bra on Any Occasion Is Certainly in Order 0
This summer another celebrity was added to the list of Hollywood actresses who is being criticized for not wearing a bra. She is Gwyneth Paltrow, and it was obvious in her attire that she deliberately left her bra at home when she accepted her Annual Renaissance Award at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. Even her modest Alexander McQueen cream, high-necked dress did not help her look less daring. Gwyneth’s boobs are not that large, but still people noticed her obvious lack of support. See photos here.
This incident proved once again that not all celebrities are always ready for the camera once they stepped out of the house. Some of them who have been in the news for not wearing a bra are Miley Cirus, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, Sharon Stone, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Kristen Stewart, and so on. I do not think these Hollywood celebrities looked at themselves long in the mirror before going out their doors. It could have saved them embarrassment in cases of wardrobe malfunctions.
Miley Cirus even tweeted that she is doing a healthy thing by going bra less; and mentioned the study made by a French researcher that bras can damage delicate breast tissues (although she has been going around with no bra even before the results of the study came out). It is apparent that Miley did not read the conclusion of the report saying that the results do not apply to all women.
However, the issue of whether to wear or not to wear a bra is more about style and comfort, rather than damaging breast tissues. When you wear either a suit or a t-shirt or any stylish clothes, wearing a bra will give you your best appearance. In some cases, when you wear an ill-fitting or wrong size bra, there is nothing added to your sense of well being overall, just like not wearing a bra at all. You wear a bra to enhance your look under clothes, in whatever occasion you are going. The bra supports what you put on top of them and assures you that you are looking your best (in addition to comfort and support of course).
It is becoming common among the celebrities not to wear a bra when attending social events, even if people who see them are shocked by their styles. It’s not a problem if they go topless on a beach cause the rest of the world is doing the same. But in a formal occasion especially in your honor, and you are showing a nipple bump, or the shape of your actual boobs, it is natural for people to give you a not so pleasing label. You know, this is how people react when they see things they deem not proper.
Some people wear bras 24/7, but if you don’t want to be like those people, there is no problem. After all, breasts do need to relax and rest a bit. Just don’t forget that if you’re going out the door, even if you just need to check the mail box, or buy something from a nearby grocery store, you must have added a supportive and covering bra on.
Going Braless Becoming a Trend among Celebrities 0
Do you have enough courage to step out in a see-through dress bralessly, like what Anne Hathaway did at the Met Ball? She arrived at the Met Ball red carpet with a new hair color, which shocked some people. But it was her side boobs that showed through her sheer black long sleeved dress that got more attention. The Met Ball theme was punk, and in fairness, Anne looked punky, sassy and confident in her braless attire. What’s more, her side boobs looked fashionable without even trying to.
The Met Ball was not the first time Anne tried braless. Her nipples also showed at the Oscars last February 24, and she showed much more, although accidentally, in December at a premier.
It looks like that going braless to red carpet events is becoming a trend among the celebrities. Besides Anne Hathaway, Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rhihanna, Miley Cyrus and others are only some of the celebrities who were spotted to let their nipples slip into view as a part of their fashion statement. What do you think? Is it okay for these people to dress like this in an event?
It might be OK for celebrities to dress according to a particular event. It is not a thing that they do everyday, hopefully. But for other people who do not belong to the entertainment industry, I believe it not proper to have bare chest and nipples underneath a sheer dress viewed by many onlookers.
Women should wear bras for three main reasons – for modesty, support, and attention from a man. So, if you decide to go braless, you will not get the support that the breasts need, besides being viewed as someone who is not so much concerned about modesty. There is also the fact that going braless will attract people’s attention, so get ready to hear some bold remarks, especially from the men who you come across in the streets.
As the shape of our nation continues to change, women are getting bigger. The lingerie size which was an average 34B has become a 36C during the last decade. Therefore it is more important today than ever to give your breasts support and comfort by wearing a right fitting bra. A good fitting bra can improve your appearance and a real boost to your confidence. Breasts need to be supported because they are mainly composed of fatty tissues that lose elasticity over time. Wearing a bra everyday can also prevent sagging and stretch marks.
Some women don’t want to wear bras because they believe that it is a pain in the (not ass, but) bust, with the clasps, straps and under wires coming into the picture. For these women, going out sans bra feels much like getting your feet out of your stiletto after a tiring and long day. However, going braless sometimes could be perceived as immodest or trashy. So a good advice is to maintain some levels of modesty when you want to go out sans bra.
Braless Wardrobe Malfunction 0
Olivia Munn is not the only star who experienced braless wardrobe malfunction. It has always been dangerous to combine sheer tops and bright lights, but the “Newsroom” actress proved that she was not deterred by this, and she braved a see-through crochet sweater. When she left the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, Olivia posed for the photographers who got an eyeful when her see-through top malfunctioned under the flashes of light. So, what the photographers saw was her braless chest.
The wardrobe malfunction term started to become a special vocabulary when Janet Jackson’s right breast made a cameo appearance in the half time show. While that story has long been forgotten, the term has stayed as relevant as before, many thanks to the stars and starlets who have carried the torch of malfunction upon themselves. Unlike the celebrities, regular folks will never have to worry about braless malfunctions becoming the trending topics on social sites, or going viral on the Internet, still they can cause too much embarrassment.
The daughter of presidential nominee John Kerry, named Alexander, also had her moment of wardrobe malfunction when she went to the Cannes Film Festival wearing a long black dress. It would have been looking demure and classy but the spotlights turned the dress translucent and revealed her white panty and bare chest. Poor girl, but the incident was not as notorious as that of Janet Jackson’s, though.
It may feel liberating to go braless and it appears to be the only option that you can take sometimes. However, going out without a bra may put you at the risk of your nipple showing through your top, like Olivia Munn. This is the most common malfunction among braless celebrities. For certain ensembles, a double stick tape may work, although its staying in place cannot be guaranteed, especially during the summer months. A nipple that does not have the protection of a bra can make an appearance even if it doesn’t pop out through a hole in the knitted sweater. A crueler kind of braless wardrobe malfunction is when it goes unnoticed until the photographers started flashing their camera, or there comes a sudden burst of lighting that’s very bright. And only then you begin to realize what is happening.
Even for simple girls who do not have photographers following their every move, experiencing a braless wardrobe malfunction can ruin the photo shooting moments. It can also cause you humiliation once you find yourself standing under a bright light. But this can be avoided if you examine the garment thoroughly. Putting your hand inside the clothing and holding it up against the light is a good trick. If you can see your hands it means that your whole body will be visible through the fabric when subjected against the light, and there’s a need for you to saddle up with the appropriate underpinning.
On second thought, why don’t these girls just wear a bra? Perhaps making their boobs a subject of people’s talking is exactly the attention they want.
