  • Gillian Anderson said she's bid farewell to bras in an Instagram Q&A with fans Tuesday.
  • "I don't wear a bra anymore. I don't wear a bra. I can't wear a bra," she said.
  • "I'm sorry, but I don't care if I reach my belly button, my breasts reach my belly button. I'm not wearing a bra anymore. It's just too fucking uncomfortable," Anderson continued.
  • The X Files icon also shared her daily ensemble of choice, in and out of lockdown: "Comfortable black track pants and a black matching hoodie. Every day, if I could."

    If you're a bra wearer who found respite from the tyranny of the underwire during lockdown—and dreads the prospect of returning to daily underwear-induced discomfort as things begin to open up—you might look to the iconic Gillian Anderson for inspiration. The X Files legend spoke to fans on Instagram Live Tuesday, revealing she's renounced bras altogether.

    Asked about her preferred lockdown ensemble, Anderson responded, "I don't wear a bra anymore. I don't wear a bra. I can't wear a bra. I can't, no. I can't." She continued, "I'm sorry, but I don't care if I reach my belly button, my breasts reach my belly button. I'm not wearing a bra anymore. It's just too fucking uncomfortable."
