Without realizing you will be braless at work; however, it is important to follow the work dress code and keep your outfits within the professional guidelines according to your job.
Try a bralette
If you don't feel confident enough to go braless right the way, you can use a bralette as a tool to get there. It will help you psychologically, making the transition smoother.
Pay attention to your posture
If you depend on the support of the bra to help you with the weight of your breasts, you should practice good posture of your body to avoid back pains. Your back should be straight with your shoulders pulled back and down while standing up. In addition, when you are sitting down, try to do it in a chair with a backrest to support your back, make sure to keep your feet flat on the ground.
Nipple covers can work magic
Of course you can let your nipples show, but most women feel uncomfortable with this. Moreover, concealing the color or shape of their nipples is one of the main reasons to wear a bra at all. If this matter troubles you, a good option is to get a skin-colored nipple cover and your problem will be magically solved.
Anyway, it is important to clarify that nipple censorship is a social dilemma that occurs because of the constant sexualization of the female body. Nobody is horrified when a man's nipple is shown, why should it be different with female nipples? However, this is a completely different debate.
Fashion tape is also a good option
In case you never heard of it, this is a double-sided tape that is safe to use on your skin, allowing you to stick your clothes to it, to keep them in place. Most celebrities use it, especially when they have to wear a low cut top or dress. You can purchase it in a drug store or a lingerie store. All you need to do is tape the edges of your garment to your skin and that way you will be confident your boob won´t pop out.
