Also known as: "the moment we get home from work" day.
What is National No Bra Day?October 13 is National No Bra Day, also known as: “the moment we get home from work“ day. Today is not just about comfort, though. National No Bra Day, which falls right in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is a time for women (and men!) to learn about breast health. It helps remind people that breast cancer is a potentially fatal disease, but also highly detectable and treatable. National No Bra Day is all about learning to spot early warning signs and get an edge in the fight against cancer.
History of National No Bra DayNational No Bra Day’s origins can be traced back to two days in history: July 9, 2011 and October 19, 2011. The latter was founded in Toronto, Canada where it was originally titled BRA Day by Dr. Mitchell Brown. BRA (Breast Reconstruction — An Event of Learning and Sharing) Day was celebrated to raise awareness for women who undergo a mastectomy and encourage self examinations. In July that same year, a person using the pseudonym Anastasia Doughnuts conceived National No Bra Day to raise breast cancer awareness, along with a website to help promote the event’s occurrence. Three years later, the two days were combined and pushed to October 13 to be celebrated during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
How to Observe National No Bra Day[list="holiday-list holiday-list-celebrate"][*]
Learn how to perform a breast self-examinationAccording to Johns Hopkins Medical Center, “40 percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump,” and the key to beating cancer is to catch it early. There are helpful infographics on the internet about self examination, and you can also consult a physician for further details. If you feel a lump or notice any irregularities (such as discharge, dimpling, or puckering), consult your doctor immediately.
Participate on social mediaShare your support for your lawless, bra-less comrades by documenting your experience on social media. Connecting with others who are also observing this holiday can lead to helpful conversations, tips on great cancer charities, or even new friendships!
Buy a new braMaybe it's counterintuitive, but National No Bra Day is a great excuse to treat yourself to a more comfortable bra. A bra that doesn't fit can be a real pain, so use the spirit of the day to treat yourself to comfort!
Why National No Bra Day is Important[list="holiday-list holiday-list-loveit"][*]
It raises breast cancer awarenessSince it is customary for people with breasts to wear bras every day, setting aside a day for purposely not wearing a bra helps make people more aware of breasts in general. Cancer, as a disease, relies on people not paying attention to it until it’s too late. But by paying attention and being aware of your breasts, you minimize the risk that you will be severely affected by breast cancer.
It raises breast awarenessWe're just going to say it—breasts are a taboo subject. But, if no one talks about them, how are we ever going to lower the risk of breast cancer? National No Bra Day is a day where it's okay, and even encouraged, to talk about breasts. This normalizes them, and de-stigmatizes getting checked for cancer.
It’s the most comfortable day of the yearNon-bra-wearers may not realize this, but bras have a tendency to be hideously uncomfortable. National No Bra Day is a great excuse to throw convention to the wind and go without a bra! (Only if you want to, of course.)
