Many sobering questions have risen in light of this preposterous pandemic, like will I lose my job? When will I see my loved ones? And how will the Kardashian kamera krew keep up?
Among them, I’ve also seen a slew of articles humorously debating the bra question since we're now all working from home: do I actually have to wear one?
Between headlines positing “Should I Put on a Bra to Work From Home?” to “Will I Ever Wear Bras Again?”, it’s an amusing but somewhat serious question confirmed by the sheer frequency of the ask.
Google “wearing a bra working from home” and you’ll find that even experts are weighing-in and purporting that going without wearing a bra for too long may cause premature sagging.
No matter your opinion, every woman can relate to that liberating bra-take-off feeling that signals the end of the day and a little repose from the poke and prod of underwire (or maybe for you it’s the dig of your overburdened shoulder straps).
But I’ve noticed a surprising reversal in this trend has proven true for me. Putting on a bra, despite the temptation paired with countless logical reasons not to, has made me feel a bit more like myself.
Expert opinions be damned! Let’s bucket the bra debate as a silver lining that we can decide without judgment through all this #WorfFromHome hullabaloo.
Wear the thing if it makes you feel good, nix it if nay.
Oh! But if you do decide to wear one, #wearmollyt 😜
YES! In fact, I’m relishing excuses to put on something besides loungewear and that is so unlike me!

I still put a bra on every morning and rip it off when I’m done working! I’ve found comfort in non wire bras that keep the girls up but don’t suffocate me at home.
