Julia Barretto On Why She Goes Bra-less: "Cause I'm Flat-Chested"

Yup, she went there.

Small-boobed women unite! The gorgeous Julia Barretto just 'fessed up to why she prefers to go braless, wearing nipple tapes instead: her boobs are "too small" for bras. The subject of Julia Barretto outfits came up in an interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, when her onscreen partner Joshua Garcia was asked about his thoughts on Julia's so-called "daring" style.

The actor said that he was concerned about how much skin Julia usually shows (we know, we rolled our eyes too), saying:

Si Julia di siya nag-iingat minsan sa susuotin niya [sometimes Julia isn't careful with her clothing choices],” he said. “Tapos minsan wala pa syang cycling, tas minsan di sya nag-aano [bra], nipple tape lang nilalagay nya. [Sometimes, she doesn't wear cycling shorts (under skirts), and sometimes, she doesn't wear stuff (bras), just nipple tape]"

Flat chest problems? Julia Barretto just owns it

Julia's response? It reminded us why we stan her:

"Ako naman Tito Boy, bilang babae, maiintindihan ng lahat ng babae na di talaga komportable magsuot ng bra [like many women, I don't think wearing a bra is comfortable at all]," she said.

But here's the clincher: "Ako naman din, walang kakapitan ang bra [plus in my case, bras wouldn't have anything to hold onto]."

This is exactly what we love about cool and candid Julia, whose outrageous answer had Boy Abunda literally screaming with laughter.

She continued:

"So, mas masakit talaga. Kasi nagttry talaga ang bra ko pero wala talagang nakakapitan. [It hurts. Because my bras really try, but there's nothing for them to do.]," she joked, adding that cycling shorts aren't comfortable, but she learned how to wear them under short skirts because of Josh's feedback.

Julia said that her outfits make her feel comfortable, confident, and happy. "This is how I express [myself]," she said, saying that sometimes she likes dressing sexily, sometimes she likes covering up.
