Some fashions are all about clothing. Just think about boots, scarves and body conscious dresses. Other fashions are all about accessories. Perfect examples would be statement jewelry, bulky handbags and hipster glasses. And some fashions are focused on hair. Brown is the new blonde, wavy is the new curly, and thick brows have replaced pencil thin ones. But fashion also extends to our bodies themselves. Big booties and thin waists are all the rage, as are pearly white teeth and bronzed skin. However, there’s one look that trumps them all – going braless. It’s a perfect marriage between styling one’s wardrobe and styling one’s body. And of course celebrities are at the forefront of this trend.
More and more often, we see stars walking around braless. It doesn’t matter if they’re taking a selfie in their pajamas, running errands in a T-shirt, or walking the red carpet in a haute couture gown. They are all bra-less, all the time. And it’s undeniably hot. If you’re looking for an eyeful, we’ve got it here for you. This is the list you need to see in order to ogle all the braless wonders that call Hollywood home.
15 Rita Ora
Rita Ora gets more press for her fashion than whatever it is she does for a living. A perfect case in point is this get-up. She’s a beautiful girl dressed in duds that are surely worth thousands, but all anyone can focus on is her chest. She’s like the Mary Poppins of boobs – she’s practically perfect in every way! She’s got size and symmetry. No wonder she’s photographed everywhere she goes.
This look, while hot, is also a little hilarious. You know how a mullet is business in the front and a party in the back? The same kind of goes for wearing a suit without a shirt or bra. It’s like she’s ready to go from a business meeting straight to the gentleman’s club. And for all we know, that’s exactly where she’s heading. Her hair, makeup and red nails are definitely not office casual.
14 Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow has gone without a bra since the 90s, and she isn’t about to change any time soon. This picture is a prime example. She gives us a perfect glimpse of side boob…and front boob! As if that weren’t enough, the seam on her dress aligns perfectly with where her nipple would be, giving the illusion that we can see it poking out. Mistake? We think not! This is better than any nip slip, for sure! She was even smart in picking a light shade of satin to wear. It highlights her skin, which attracts the eye to the body underneath the dress – not the dress itself. Paltrow has mastered the art of showing off her body in a hot way, while still being classy. That’s no small feat.
Of course, fans are quick to point out that her chest seems to have enlarged over the years. She actually walked the red carpet without a bra in a sheer black dress one time, and was flat as a pancake. In this pic, her chest is bulging which is highly consistent with implants. No wonder she doesn’t need the help of a bra!
13 Britney Spears
Britney Spears looks like she burned her bra in this pic! She’s hanging out all over the place. Her breasts look jumbo sized. Maybe it’s because her shirt is flesh colored, but it’s hard to tell if her breasts are too big, or if her shirt is too small. Her swollen breasts look like they go from clavicle to navel, and from armpit to sternum. Spears could stop traffic while walking down the street. Frankly, she looks like she needs a little support. Still, there’s no denying this pic is hot. It’s Britney Spears being Britney Spears. We love to see her in all her crazy glory. She still looks great when she’s all dressed up at the VMAs and on the red carpet, but in those cases she looks artificial and uncomfortable in her own skin. Everyone prefers seeing her in off the cuff pics like this one.
12 Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne has modeled for Victoria’s Secret, so she must have a ton of swag (including bras). Still, she eschews support garments for the natural look as evidenced by this pic. In the frontal shot, we get to see some awesome cleavage. So often starlets wear bras that push their breasts together in an unnatural way. Here, we get to see what a real woman’s cleavage looks like – including the chest bones in between the breasts. In the side shot, fans get a bird’s eye view of her boobage. Delevingne has wonderful curvature, which is in proportion to her frame. There’s no question that she isn’t wearing a bra, but we do suspect she’s at least sporting some tape to keep everything in place.
So, why the braless look? In this case, we think it’s a comfort thing. Delevingne is wearing sneakers, modified sweatpants, and low key makeup. It looks like she just wants to take a break from getting dolled up.
11 Emmy Rossum
Emmy Rossum is just about always braless on Shameless, so it’s only fitting that she’s braless in this pictorial for Esquire magazine. Audiences see her bare breasts on Showtime constantly, but somehow this pic is way hotter because it leaves a little something to the imagination. The bottoms of her perfect breasts are peeking out underneath her cropped top, and we get to see how lovely they are. They are plump and curved. The rest of her body is just as exquisite. Her stomach is toned, her legs are lean, and her face has a look of ecstasy. Rossum’s chest is almost too good to be true, but savvy fans of hers know that she’s all natural. She’s constantly moving and shaking on her hit series, and her breasts bounce in all the right ways. It’s easy to see why she doesn’t wear a bra, because she’s so ideally shaped that she doesn’t need one to mold what she has up top.
10 Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson left her bra at home when she left the house when this pic was taken. It’s definitely refreshing to see a woman in Hollywood that is more on the small side. Many find it really alluring, or at least appreciate seeing someone who hasn’t yielded to the pressures of Hollywood conformity. Johnson has a quiet beauty in this pic, and it’s because she’s letting her more subtle features take center stage. When we aren’t distracted by a large chest, million dollar jewels or overly done makeup, we can appreciate her supple skin, high cheekbones and sparkling eyes.
Johnson did take one misstep in going braless, though. Since she doesn’t have the extra padding that a bra provides, the cups of her dress aren’t full enough so her breasts look deflated. She should have been wise enough to hire a good tailor.
9 Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato was slammed for this pic when it first came out. Fashion critics said that her breasts were too wide set to be wearing a dress that was this deeply cut. We couldn’t disagree more! This is what an authentic woman’s breasts look like. They’re real, and they’re spectacular! Lovato has every right to show off her best feature, because her chest won’t be this perky forever. And she’s just the right size – each breast is exactly a handful (no more, no less). If Lovato was still holding onto being a child star in any way, this pic definitely solidified her role as a grown up. Even the way she styled herself was mature. A smart woman knows to show off only one feature when dressing up, or else she will risk looking trashy. That is just what Lovato did, since she showcased her chest, but covered up her arms, torso and legs.
8 Kendall Jenner
There are so many bra-less photos of Kendall Jenner it's ridiculous. What is it with this girl? We know she can afford a bra. It’s like she’s begging for a purple nurple or something. Maybe she’s just trying to find her niche in the Kardashian household. Kim is famous for her butt, Khloe is famous for her size, Kourtney is famous for being the boring one, and Kylie is famous for her plastic surgery. So, we guess it’s only normal in that family to want to be known as the bra-less wonder. At least she does it well. Her breasts are proportionate to her body, and her wardrobe is tasteful, so she doesn’t look like she belongs on a street corner.
7 Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley looks like an ethereal goddess in this pose. Her face is angelic, her skin is porcelain and her thin body is at its best. But all anyone looking at this pic can focus on are her breasts. They may not be full, but they pack a punch. With a smaller chest, she looks delicate. This is quite a contrast to most starlets that walk the red carpet with inflated breasts that enter a room before they do. Knightley takes all the tackiness out of not wearing a bra. She can thank the dress’s designer for fitting her gown so perfectly to her body, because she looks effortless. The draping of the gown across her front seems like it just found its way onto her shape organically. Lucky for her, too – because this is one look that could have easily evolved into a wardrobe malfunction. Knightley is always known for her class, so we surmise that she would have had the forethought to wear pasties underneath, though. She’s not a desperate type like Anne Hathaway who leaves the house without underwear, only to be photographed in a compromising position and then get mad that she’s being compared to Paris Hilton.
6 Sarah Hyland
Sarah Hyland is often criticized for dressing too maturely on the red carpet. Critics complain that she has the rest of her life to be covered up, so she might as well take a page from Sofia Vergara’s book and glam it up while she’s still young and relevant. It looks like Hyland took the hint with this pic. Hyland has one of the most enviable chests in Hollywood. She’s super petite, so her perky breasts contrast really well with her body. Her chest is so full that she actually doesn’t seem like she even needs a bra. If every girl was as blessed as she is, Victoria’s Secret would be out of business. Hyland has the smallest breasts of all the women on Modern Family, but if you ask us, hers are the best.
5 Kate Upton
Kate Upton has one of the most talked about pairs of breasts since Pamela Anderson’s. Their size and shape fluctuate just as wildly as her body weight, sparking debate about whether or not they’re real. Still, whether she’s au naturel or nipped/tucked, it’s undeniable that her rack is head turning. People must find it hard to keep their hands to themselves when they’re around her. Upton is overexposed, but it isn’t hard to understand why. With assets like hers, she can command attention in just about anything.
Upton’s so top heavy, though, that we think she must wear a bra in real life. She definitely needs a lot of support. Yet, that didn’t stop Victoria’s Secret from slamming her and publicly stating that she has looks that anyone with money can buy.
4 Hailey Baldwin
Hailey Baldwin is quickly becoming an “it-girl.” She models for major brands, and has become fast friends with models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Here, she’s sporting the bra-less look for the clothing company Express. This is bra-less-ness at its best, because her shirt shows off her body’s natural shape. It leaves almost nothing to the imagination. We can see the outline of her mounds, and the peaks of her breasts. The only things we can’t see are her nipples, because she was smart and wore a textured shirt that obscures peekaboos.
Baldwin shows us in this pic that 90s fashions are totally back. And with the varying clothing trends comes a shake-up in what sort of bodies are considered “hot.” It looks like we’re moving away from overly plumped busts and booties, and are moving towards more slimmer, trimmer physiques.
3 Paris Hilton
Most celebutantes wear pasties underneath their shirts in case of wardrobe malfunctions. Hilton is just as fame-hungry as ever, so she’s totally exploring ways to keep getting attention other than by showing off her boobs and ladybits. It’s starting to be a little hard for her, though, because she’s just about out of ideas. It seems that her only options now would either be to get the skin removed from her abdomen so that we can see her organs. Hey, that’s what you’ve got to do to keep up with the Kardashians.
2 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner hasn’t required a bra since before her “transformation.” Now that she’s been enhanced, her breasts sit perfectly at attention. They don’t need any lifting. They don’t need any squeezing. And they sure as heck don’t need any padding. She’s practically ready to fall over due to their size in this pic. Whoever said that bigger is better must’ve been thinking about bank accounts rather than boobs. There is too much of a good thing, and this particular Jenner found it out the hard way. For god’s sake, her father got a better boob job than she did. And she’s just exacerbating her plastic looks by posing her lips like a blow-up doll.
1 Kim Kardashian
When you look at as many bra-less pics as we do, you will quickly realize that Kim Kardashian is the queen. In fact, it’s almost easier to find a pic of her without a bra than it is a pic of her wearing one. And when she does something, she goes all out – so most of her bra-less pics actually show every bit of areola and nipple. This pic of hers is extra sweet because she’s definitely bra-less, but it’s hard to make out what’s poking through. Basically, this is like a Kardashian magic eye poster – stare at it long enough, and what you’re looking at will eventually appear. The cherry on top is her gorgeous face. She’s totally teasing us by licking her lips – and we love every bit of it.
