Gillian Anderson has ditched bras, and this could be your sign to do the same.
"I don’t wear a bra anymore. I can’t wear a bra. I’m sorry,” the 'Crown' actress candidly said in an Instagram Live video on July 12. "I don’t care if my breasts reach my belly button. I’m not wearing a bra, it’s just too f–king uncomfortable.” She was met with praise from her followers in the comments section, particularly as many women are facing the reality of going back to bras after the pandemic freed them from any perceived need.
