Why Hollywood is Going Braless. And Would You Ever? Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Even Behati Prinsloo Have Ditched Theirs

Getty ImagesGetty ImagesIt's come to our attention that young Hollywood is going braless more and more these days. Let's take a look at the evidence, shall we? First--and perhaps most famously--there's Miley Cyrus, who wore a knit black dress, sans brassiere, as Danica reported.

Then there's Rihanna at the Chanel Haute Couture show, leaving little to the imagination in a long ivory cardigan and seemingly nothing underneath.

Despite the fact that she's an Angel and has nearly 50 bras in her lingerie drawer, she said she would rather go braless. "I don't see the huge hoo-ha around it," she told the New York Daily News.

"Everybody has the same. It's a body, it's beautiful," she told us, though we beg to differ on all bodies being equal. She says, "Don't go naked, but if you're not wearing a bra and it's appropriate, totally."

Breast size is obviously a huge consideration when going without a bra. All these ladies have smaller chest sizes, but I can't imagine a woman who typically wears a larger bra size being very comfortable walking (let alone running!) without some support.

I have a friend on the other end of the spectrum who refuses to take her bra off (she even sleeps with it on!), and she claims her boobs are perkier because of her constant bra wear.

Behati's recent interview on the subject got me thinking: Would I be willing to go to work or out for the night without a bra? For me, the answer is definitely no. But how about you? Would you give up your bra?
