DEAR ABBY: Regarding the teen-age girl who is being called a lesbian because she finds wearing a bra uncomfortable -- at age 66 I have grown weary of people whose only exercise is jumping to conclusions!
I do not wear a bra because the straps hurt my pacemaker site. (My "alien implant.")
I wear clothing with double chest pockets, or T-shirts with wonderful, happy designs so my braless state is not obvious. At my age, if I did wear a bra it would be a 34-long! -- GLENNA MAHON, CONCORD, VA.
DEAR GLENNA: I agree; there may be mitigating circumstances for going braless. Your letter reminds me of this old joke: "When is a brassiere like the Salvation Army?" Answer: "When it uplifts the downfallen."
