Title: First day of wearing a bra to work
Post by: Puppies on January 11, 2021, 04:53:35 AM
Well, finally taken the plunge and wearing a bra to work for the first and no doubt not the last time. 

I've deliberately worn a fairly thick rugby shirt which I think hides is pretty well. 

Have to say it feels very comfortable and I really like the shape it gives me. 

I'm not going to say anything and will be honest if anyone raises it.

Looks great!!!   Hopefully, you feel comfortable and ready to take on the world.  I remember my first time going to work wearing a bra.  I felt afraid and nervous, but very comfortable.  I wore my first bra I purchased out the store that day so start getting used to it.  Let us know how you make out.

Looks good Gary. I would be careful wearing horizontal stripes though. The wrong width or placement will emphases the chest. Dark solids and patterns help to confuse the eyes.

Enjoy your first day! Only you know you are wearing a bra!

Congratulations! I remember (it wasn’t that long ago) my first time as an anxious time. Now I’m almost militant about it! The comfort and control far outweigh the possibility of me being noticed. 
I have a sizable chest and no one’s said a word to me. I have gotten a smile or two from women who have noticed, but that’s it.

Gary,
You look great!  I agree the patterns and style will impact the bra’s stealth.  I tend to wear printed pattern button down shirts.  I have convinced myself they hid the bra the best.  At least for me.

Once I started wearing, it was hard for me to go without.

Looks good! I don't think people would notice. If anything, you might get a complement on having better posture now that you can stand straight and walk with confidence.

Looks stealthy. 

Most of us present with visible bumps anyway that we can not hide. If we feel more comfortable in a bra then it is great we accept that and wear one as much as possible to feel our best. With the right shirts the bra itself is virtually undetectable and the bumps on our chest may even look a bit smoother and have less bounce movement to attract attention. Only an unplanned back rub or hug may give away that we are wearing a bra. I try to avoid those hug situations.

Well it all went very well with no embarrassment or awkwardness. 

Neither were there any inadertant back pats to give the game away!

Think I'd like to have some acknowledgment from co-workers, but will wait for that rather than trying to force it.

Ill quickly retell a story from earlier this year. 

On co-worker saw me walk in and I wasn't wearing any bra. 

I was "protruding" greatly! 

He looked and said rather bluntly... 

"I want those! "

I have not gone braless since.

I recall my first day with a bra. I pick and choose when I wear one as I’m not busty and can be ok on some days without one. And with an office job not too worried about the bounce and jiggle as I’m often sitting except for my lunch runs. But my first day I was so nervous. I had to have looked at myself in mirrors and cameras at home in various lights and angles like how do I not see this. First one I wore was a favorite of mine now and a nice burgundy push up and figured if I can wear a push up bra and be ok surely my t shirt bras will do just fine. I was paranoid the first few hours but it quickly subsided as I walked around and such on breaks and lunch and no one seemed to notice look or care. Following days I’d do the same with my t shirt bras and noticed some showed more than others and other shirts did better with those that did show more I’m not showing so much. I quickly started to understand why women have so many bra styles and often have heard many say they spend so much time picking which outfit can go with the bra. Realizing doubtful to emphasize their bust but simply to give a good look. Some shirts showed more protrusion than others but I still wear and wore cause I just quit caring at this point and have come to realize a 34b cup isn’t Dolly Parton and I should be comfortable and proud not uncomfortable and guilty. I have boobs I wear bras it is what it is.

Your profile pic is great. The hardest part to stepout while wearing bra, for me, was the self consciousness.  I thought it was going to be so obvious. 

The bra I wore actually tamed my breasts a bit. You could still tell that I had "manboobs" but they weren't so right in your face. The bra actually smoothed things out and made them not so obvious.

Also, I thought someone would see the bra. After a day of being in public and no one even looking at me funny, I realized that they didn't know or they didn't care. i don't really care what people think most of the time but I don't want to make a spectacle out of my self, either.

Just enjoy the support a bra can give and drive on!

(being a post-surgery guy, I hope people don't mind me adding my 2 cents)

I have been wearing this compression vest for over 3 weeks now. It bugged the hell out of me at first, but now I can't stand when it's off. My (shrunken) boobs are very tender and when that thing is off, I feel every foot step. I feel everything and it's maddening. After a shower I can't wait to get things back where they belong, secured and safe. I might wear the vest in the future when I want to look and feel my best. At 57+ I'm getting droopier in every aspect.. 

I just wanted to say that because I think of guys with the big chests and how much of a difference the support garment (bra) makes. There's nothing like the feeling of when it's fitted right, and positioned correctly. Your brain can stop focusing on chest discomfort and you can live your life.
