In Western society , there is an increasing trend towards bralessness among a number of women, especially millennials, who have expressed opposition to and are giving up wearing bras. In , Allure magazine fashion director Rachael Wang wrote, "Going braless is as old as feminism but it seems to be bubbling to the surface more recently as a direct response to Third Wave moments like freethenipple hashtag campaign, increased trans-visibility like Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover Women choose to go braless due to discomfort, health-related issues, their cost, and for social reasons, often having to do with self acceptance and political expression. A feminist protest at the Miss America Contest is often seen as the beginning of the anti-bra movement. Women and school-age girls in China, Malaysia, Canada, England, and the United States have been harassed and prosecuted for not wearing a bra.

Dimpling of breast tissue can happen for different reasons, including inflammatory breast cancer. This is an invasive type of breast cancer. Cancer is not the only reason why dimpling occurs in the breast tissue, but if the breast also feels red and warm, it may be a sign of cancer that needs urgent treatment. Dimpling of the breast tissue can be a sign of a serious form of cancer known as inflammatory breast cancer. Sometimes, the skin can also be red and inflamed. Skin changes : The area around the breast, nipple, or areola may appear red, scaly, or swollen. Thickening of tissue : This can affect breast tissue or the area near the underarm. Dimpling as a sign of breast cancer tends to occur in only one breast. If dimpling affects both breasts, the person probably does not have breast cancer. With inflammatory breast cancer, there may not be a lump.
Breast reduction is a common cosmetic surgical procedure. It aims not only at bringing down the size of the breast proportionate to the build of the individual, but also to overcome the discomfort caused by massive, ill-shaped and hanging breasts. The operative procedure has evolved from mere reduction of breast mass to enhanced aesthetic appeal with a minimum of scar load. The selection of technique needs to be individualised. Bilateral breast reduction is done most often.
