5 Tips for Going Braless This Summer

Whether your cups runneth over or hardly runneth at all, it's the perfect time to let your girls loose.

As we arrive upon the hot, sticky months of summer, you're probably itching (literally) to release the hounds from their cages—i.e. take off your g-ddamn bra. But what if you—like so many women—feel completley naked without your front-cups? We hear you!
That's why we put together this super helpful list on how to liberate the girls while keeping your self-assurance on point. 


Dim the Headlights

Rather not #freethenipple? Invest in discreet covers like Commando Low Beams adhesives ($10 for 5;, which blur nips and are particularly handy underneath superlight materials. In a pinch, a large Band-Aid can get the job done.


Snap a Selfie

Because staring into a mirror doesn't always give you the clearest view. Stylist Anita Patrickson, who works with Chrissy Teigen and Julianne Hough, advises taking a picture of your get-up before leaving the house. If you don't like how the bralessness looks in the photo, you won't like how it looks in real life either.


Wear a Halter

When in doubt, halter. Not all styles lend themselves to bouncing bosoms (a white silk button-down, for example). But halters—whether in dresses or tops—practically beg for it. They give you a built-in boost.


Perk Up

Sag happens (to all ages and sizes), but that doesn't mean your bra-free days are dunzo. Patrickson swears by Fashion Forms Superlite Adhesive Bra ($17, Sure, it has the word bra in it, but it doesn't have the pesky band that you spend all day dreaming about unlatching.


Make Ta-Ta Friendly Adjustments

If you plan to do this on the reg, Patrickson recommends having a tailor take in the bodice of your dress, which creates built-in support, and adding lining to any ensembles made with sheer fabrics, which will prevent the look from revealing too much.
