Rihanna's Reason For Freeing Her Nipple Is More Practical Than Political

Sometimes a bra just has to go, y'know?

Almost two years ago, Rihanna wore a dress so iconic that VogueVogue!!!!! — is still talking about it. That dress, of course, is the totally sheer gown she wore to the 2014 CFDA Awards.

In her Vogue cover story, Rih revealed that not wearing a bedazzled thong was her single greatest regret in life. One thing she definitely doesn't regret, though? Not wearing a bra underneath the dress.

Though the dress was rumored to be a response to Instagram for disabling her account after she posted a topless photo, Rih explains in new excerpts from the interview that the decision to go braless was much simpler.

She says, "I have always freed the nipple. It was never to get attention. Never sexual. Never in desperation. The bra just fucked up my sheer shirt. I just wanted to be perfect and that’s what I went with and I felt okay with that."
