Leave aside the talking about it, people even hesitate to speak the word ‘bra’. However, some people that not only include women but men too have thought that it’s te to let loose and finally talk about it. In this modern era where if a bra strap somehow is visible, it is supposed to be fixed immediately, people are fighting back to stop wearing a bra and be free.
