As she sat on her couch in Atlanta, she explained, ‘It’s probably the same as mine out of the lockdown outfit.’ I mean, I’ve gotten so lazy, and I don’t have a bra anymore. I can not wear a bra. I can not, no, I can not. Sorry.
‘I do not care if my breasts reach my navel, I do not have a bra anymore. It’s just too fucking uncomfortable.
‘So yes, comfortable black track pants and a matching hoodie. I would wear it every day if I could. ‘
Her words have since sparked a stream of people on social media explaining that they plan to follow in her footsteps and ditch their bras.

‘Now that I’m older, I can put it all into perspective. The rewards I have been blessed with for following my instincts are many and I never got to the point of considering moving back to America, ‘she added.
