Drew Barrymore presented an award at the 2006 Golden Globes in a lovely green dress with a modest cut. But the prestigious gold award statues werenâ€™t the only, uh, globes that were distracting viewers. Barrymore, who is not exactly light in the chest area, chose to go braless that evening. Even if you missed the awards, chances are you’ve heard about this faux pas, she’s been ripped in every tabloid, gossip rag and blog out there.
What is this no bra trend? Young alternative fashion divas like Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst have been spotted countless times without underwire. Their distracting flappy fronts are usually offset by a carefully cultivated slouch to compliment their vintage gear. Is this a trend that you should be following? Not unless you work in the adult entertainment industry. Even if your A-cup is perky, there’s the nipple factor to consider. Going braless is rarelyphotogenic – remember Gwyneth at the Oscars in 2002? Keep the braless moments private and throw on some support when you leave the house. I love Cosabella’s Soire ultra-smooth bra available in basic nude or black. Wear a bra but feel bare with the Soire soft triangle bra. Find them both at figleaves.com.
