No Bra Day is an annual observance on October 13 on which women are encouraged to forgo wearing a bra as a means to encourage breast cancer awareness.
The day was initially observed on July 9, 2011, but within three years it had moved to the 13th day of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October.
The movement started in 2011 and largely takes place on social media, where women use the hashtag #nobraday to the campaign.
The aim is to raise awareness and encourage women to carry out self-examinations, screenings, and make sure they know the signs of breast cancer.
On their part, women who don’t want to go braless are encouraged to take part, by wearing something purple for the day.
During this day, Ladies are also encouraged to get a mammogram screening, which can help detect breast cancer up to two years before it can be felt by the patient or a doctor.
