Women Reveal How They REALLY Feel About Going Out Braless

To free the nipple or to not free the nipple?

It seems to be a major topic of discussion for many women these days, as we've all started to realize not being able to walk around without a shirt on is somewhat sexist. If a man can show his nipples, why can't we?

Though walking around without a top on is (fairly) too much for some, many women are ditching their bras to roam wherever they please without their boobs being stuck in a cage like a zoo animal. (Let the record show we don't support zoos.)

Many women have fully embraced doing this, while others are still on the fence. The subreddit AskWomen wanted to get to the bottom of whether or not going out braless is something all women should consider.

Plenty of valid points were made, so let's not dilly-dally and get into them now!
