Being Bra less, Panty Less or Topless

In the Mens Room, there is a discussion about naturist men going, "Commando," and not wearing underwear for the sake of comfort and its relationship to feeling nude. I wonder what female nudists views are on going bra less, panty less or topless. Why would you do so or not do so and why?
I think if I was a woman, unless I was particularly top heavy and had back problems or something, my bra at least would come off the moment I came in the front door of the house, and it would be pretty hard for me to get me back into it. I'm sure most women dress down in other ways into shorts, sweats or whatever, so why not lose under clothes while your at it for even more comfort?
Also, I would be really tempted to go bra less outside of the home quite a bit.
I hope you ladies will help me understand the female mindset on these things.
Finally, let me say that I find it absolutely ridiculous that it is socially acceptable for men to go topless in so many environments, but it's almost considered evil if women do it.

RE: Being Bra less, Panty Less or Topless

At home, nudist beaches and resorts I am obviously nude.
In my day-to-day textile life I am always braless and try to be 'commando' when suitably possible. Being braless has many advantages. It is much comfier, it's much better for breast health and it's cheaper (bras cost a fortune!) so unless you have massive boobs it's pretty much a no brainer to me.
As with many nudist related activities there are a few confidence issues to overcome. I used to obsess about my boobs moving or bouncing and also about the dreaded poking nipples. But I soon realised that i was probably being over vigilant and nobody else would even notice.
With regard to textile beaches; in Europe being topless is definitely accepted so it's not an issue at all. In the UK I think being topless is becoming more accepted and popular now. It's still only a tiny minority, but it's more than it used to be I think. I go topless when I can depending on who I go to the beach with (friends/family etc).
All of the above is just a guide not a rule, there are always circumstances where dress codes need to be followed but I try my best to dress as I feel most comfortable.
I think the brafree movement (as well as the topfree movement) is gaining in popularity and support. Dressing for comfort rather than conforming to outdated standards is hugely important and is another step in the right direction towards complete equality. I think that if people can (and want to) support these ideals then they should be promoted as much as possible.

I have to ware a bra, ever since my wife found one on the back seat of my car. I'm just glad she did find any pink panties.

My wife will go braless when we go out but only if the dress hides any erect nipples. But won't go out without panties unless she forgets she doesn't have any on, but that's very rare.

I hope you'll friend me, so we can share thoughts even more. I am harmless.
I'm glad you're able to be comfortable, and that's what being a nudist is all about for me.
How is being bra free good for women's health?
My wife has always been fairly large breasted, and she would be bouncing and swinging everywhere, if she didn't wear a bra. When she doesn't around the house, I love it, though.
I lived in England for 4 years as a boy and US Air Force brat. I was really young, but I have such fond memories of it. I wish Dad had kept us in Europe the whole time. During the Cold War, there was certainly a demand for him to do so. Anyway, being bra free was quite normal in the village that we lived in off of base, and top freedom was a given and public breast feeding was non-issue.
The way that breasts are over-sexualized and public breast feeding is demonized in America is really, really stupid; I think. In the case of the later, it downright pisses me off!

I go topless when I can and nude when I can. Fortunately, I can do it very often. I hate bras and just have one or two. But I really pay no attention to them. Very much the opposite.When I visit the underwear section at the store, Im impressed to see how evil bras are, pushing, hurting and pressing just to make our breasts look what? "firm and big and tight"?..Honestly, I think it is our fault (womens fault) to let Fashion Industry to play with us like that.Although we should say the same about plastic surgery, etc etcI am 41 yrs old. I am a bit overweight and have important breasts. Now, I wont go into any stupid bra to make them look what they are not.I am a woman, I have given birth and breast feed. I love my natural breasts as they are, no need to get them tortured suppossedly to look what? "more atractive?"..Honestly, to be atractive to someone who expects my breasts to look 20 when Im forty one its not something Im crazy about looolId look into his eyes (while he looks at my breasts lol) and say: "listen boy..you and me shouldnt even be talking" hahahaha!Panty less: Quite the same thing. I forget about them during the whole summer time. They are just useful during my period that is.Cheeersss xxWow, you ladies are being so open about these issues with me, and I really appreciate it. I love getting females' perspectives on these things outside of mine and my wife's families. Adults should be able to talk about such things without them getting twisted.
My wife turned 50 last summer, and she is overweight, too. I'm sure doctors would say she's "obese," but she looks fine to me. I like the way her body has changed over our 25 year long marriage. She wears a C cup, but she definitely looks like a D, to me. She's always worn a bra except for when sleeping and a little but not a lot around the house, and her breasts look very similar to what they did when we married. We've had three kids, and she breast fed all of them for extended periods of times.

I love going braless and pantyless. Gives me freedom.Yours is a very good point, too...freedom or rather a feeling of freedom, and many of the guys brought that up in the men's forum as feeling the same way.
I was raised in a strict, Christian home with two sisters and a mom, of course. The ladies always war bras, or if they went braless like in their pajamas after reaching puberty, I didn't notice. I mean, I like boobs as much as the next guy, but I didn't and don't loose my mind just because I see a tit. We've all got 'em...even us guys, but I'm trying to loose my man boobs.
I hope you'll add me as a friend as will the other ladies. These discussions are really great.

I really don't give a damn. if anyone sees my anything, anywhere (except church or a client maybe).

A recent study found that 35% of men have been injured while undoing a woman's bra. That's correct. While unfastening a woman's stabilizing device, men have received strained tendons, scratches, and other similar injuries. Actually, I can vouch for that. I got injured today while trying to undo a woman's bra. When I undid the woman in front of me in the checkout line, she turned and hit me with a can of peas.

Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used to define bra sizes? It is about time you became informed!
{A} Almost Boobs {B} Barely there {C} Can't Complain! {D} Dang! {DD} Double dang! {E} Enormous! {F} Fake {G} Get a Reduction {H} Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up!
Then there's the German bra: Holtzemfromfloppen

I never wear bras. I have one, I wear it VERY occasionally and usually with one specific dress I have. I don't really care if people can tell I'm not, so what if my nipples are poking out, we all have them!

But science says that bras are pretty much useless for many people, I agree wholeheartedly!
