I’m a 37-year-old mom – I proudly go braless in public, people can judge away | The Sun
The ‘ditch your bra’ movement has gained another convert.
This time it is TikToker Flower Child (@theflowerchild11) who goes bra-free.
She is loving the sense of liberation and it shows in her video.
But to make the move she has had to confront her self-consciousness about going out in public with no support.
It can be intimidating and might draw uninvited comments and slurs.
After all, she's going against the age-old expectations of women everywhere.
Nonetheless, this 37-year-old mom, wife, and artist, finally frees herself of rigid cultural standards and ditches her bra.
In her post, her arms are folded over her braless chest, and she looks awkward.
She captions her post: “Old me, embarrassed to go braless in public. Scared to go against ‘societal norms’.”
She has a change of heart, however, and the video skips.
