Oct. 13 is No Bra Day, an annual “holiday” that encourages women to set the “girls” free in “support” of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While the occasion may be liberating (and so much more comfortable) for some women, the event is not without controversy. In fact, some find the event quite offensive. But No Bra Day helps raise awareness about a very important cause – breast cancer. Adult content Please be advised
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. Despite the many advances in cancer treatment and great progress over the years, the cause of breast cancer is still unknown. According to the National Cancer Institute, it is estimated that more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and 40,000 will die. But many do survive breast cancer. In fact, 89 percent survived five or more years after being diagnosed between 2004 and 2010. Finding cancer early by regular self-exams and mammograms can save your life. Know the known risks and talk to your doctor about scheduling a mammogram.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month helps raise awareness and supports breast cancer research, but also honors those who have lost the fight. Whether or not you plan to participate in No Bra Day by going braless on Oct. 13, the fight against cancer continues.
We took to social media to gather views on what people are saying about the day. These are some of the views we gathered…

Whoever cameup with #NoBraDay in support of breat cancer must be a sexual pervert. How exactly is it helping the campeign? how? really how? it can only assort to time consuming, public discorse, send the langarie business down to the pipe and entertain the hungry men out there in the street. I share the Breast Cancer Campeign but this methodology is absurd and luclustre. Atlist, tell us a better way to make a soft porn.#NoHardFeelings.
