Today Is National “No Bra Day”
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and with that comes an awareness day on October 13 that has garnered continued discussion over the last few years — No Bra Day.
The day was apparently created in 2011, and its audience has continued to grow to the point where it is sweeping social media. However, there has been some debate as to whether or not No Bra Day has the intended effect of raising awareness about breast cancer, or if it is just an excuse for women not to wear a fairly restrictive piece of underwear.
Of course, there are alternatives for those who either must wear a bra or for those who simply do not, such as men. To support No Bra Day, this unique group can wear the color purple to help raise awareness about breast cancer and its effects. Pink is also the universal color for breast cancer support and awareness.
