When I was 12, I worried that I might never grow breasts. There I was, all of 80 pounds, nothing but skin and bones, bruised shins, a mouth full of braces, and not a curve in sight. Although I had my older and younger sisters, the person I needed most was my mother. She had died three years earlier in a car accident, leaving me with an aching pit in my stomach and too many unanswered questions in my mind. I just knew that she would have known what to do. Before gym class, I would surreptitiously look around the locker room to see who had developed. How I envied those girls whose large perky mounds were barely contained in their T-shirts. Thank God for flat-as-a-board Mary Jane Geller, who, like me, turned her back when she changed into her gym uniform under her clothes, hoping no one was looking. To make matters worse, two lockers down from Mary Jane and me was popular Linda Turrow with her 38Ds. What did it feel like to have breasts like that, to be the fascination of all the boys in middle school?

I didn't want to have breasts and wear bras.

In Western society , there is an increasing trend towards bralessness among a number of women, especially millennials, who have expressed opposition to and are giving up wearing bras. In , Allure magazine fashion director Rachael Wang wrote, "Going braless is as old as feminism but it seems to be bubbling to the surface more recently as a direct response to Third Wave moments like freethenipple hashtag campaign, increased trans-visibility like Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover Women choose to go braless due to discomfort, health-related issues, their cost, and for social reasons, often having to do with self acceptance and political expression.

Women and school-age girls in China, Malaysia, Canada, England, and the United States have been harassed and prosecuted for not wearing a bra.
