littlelifts No Bra Day

Here at littlelifts we are observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October by marking the mid-way point, No Bra Day, an annual observance on 13 October, where usually women nationally are encouraged to forgo wearing a bra to encourage awareness about breast cancer. However, this year, littlelifts is celebrating No Bra Day by asking women to trade wearing a bra for the day with the men in their lives.

We are encouraging women to ask their boyfriend, husband, brother(s), father, friend(s) or cousin(s), to consider wearing a bra under their shirt for the day as a way to show solidarity with women, who have had or are currently enduring breast cancer and the challenges that goes with treatment.

Men can also experience breast cancer too and we hope to support men with littlelifts boxes in the near future.

Why not get your friends to join in and take on this unique challenge together and help raise awareness and funds to support women with breast cancer.   We’d love to have you involved.

Six easy steps to taking part:

  1. Men, it’s important to find a bra that fits comfortably (see below for fitting tips). You want to avoid soreness, red marks and underwiring injuries!
  2. Start a fundraising page or make a donation to acknowledge your amazing efforts and help spread the word.
  3. Wear your bra under your tee or shirt on 13 October. Those feeling bold can wear their bra on top of their clothing if they prefer.(Ladies, feel free to go bra-less for the day if you want to or wear a decorated or sequenced bra on top of your clothing.)
  4. Ask your colleagues and friends to support your fundraising efforts
  5. Capture your experience and take some pics: Guys – what was it like wearing a bra for the day? Surprisingly comfortable? Strange? Supportive? Scratchy? Share with us @littlelifts_uk
  6. Don’t forget to take your bra off before bed!
