Eleven Annoying Things About Wearing Bras That Men Will Never Understand
Let's be fair, if we didn't have to wear a bra, 90% of women probably wouldn't. Unfortunately, we do and there are certain occasions when it certainly adds a certain, shall we say, lift to the entire outfit. But still, don't we just hate them? Here's why...
1. They HURT!
Unless you're wearing a bra that has cups like the cushions of the Gods, they are bloody restrictive. Most women can't wait for that moment when you get home and you can rip it off. FREEDOM!
2. The Wire
When that wire breaks, there is no pain like it on earth. It's almost like it is trying to deflate your breasts.
3. The Airport Security Test
Just how much metal is in that bra? Well, you will find out in the airport. Embarrassing strip search anyone? I HAVE TO WEAR THIS THING!
4. The No-Sports-Bra Problem

9. Eyes in the Back of my Head
We don't know about you, but we certainly can't see our backs. Luckily, we have perfected the art of tying our bra straps without looking at them.
10. Falling Straps Fiascos
There is literally NOTHING worse than a falling bra strap. There are you are, walking down the street, fixing your underwear in plain view of everyone. Just... charming.
11. Bra Shopping
If you're small, you will never find one small enough. If you have larger boobs, you will never find one big enough. No one likes getting measured either. The entire affair is just a horrible experience.
