There are a lot of things I could go without on Halloween. Like getting Almond Joys instead of Reese's Cups, or encountering a scary clown in a dark alleyway. On the flip side, though, an empowering braless Halloween costume is one thing that I think could definitely improve this already-awesome holiday. Women deserve the freedom to dress in whatever sexy (Sexy Tofu, Sexy Printing Lab Monitor, Sexy iPhone 6s) or "non-sexy" (Zombie Granny, Carton of Eggs, Poop Emoji) themed costumes as we please. So, whether you go braless every day of the year or just want to try it out for the night, Halloween is the perfect opportunity to let your boobs do their thing.
Embracing your body is important all year round, but who doesn't love a good excuse to show it off for the night? Whether you plan to go fully topless or simply opt for a lowkey bralette, remember that regardless of who or what you're dressed up as, your cleavage is flawless because it's your own! And that isn't something you have to hide if you don't feel like it. Here are six braless Halloween to keep you comfortable whether you're trick or treating or drinking pumpkin beer all night long. Or both.
1. Beyonce In "Crazy In Love"
Everyone loves a good early 2000s throwback costume, and nothing is more slay-worth than a Bey-circa-"Crazy In Love" look. Simple, yet iconic — and you probably have all the necessary components already sitting in your closet.
2. Rihanna In Her CFDA Dress
Because hey, it wouldn't be Rihanna if it didn't absolutely blow your mind and make you reconsider every social norm. Replicate the look with a little pink and a lot of glitter.

Nobody does braless quite like a hippie, right? Silly stereotypes aside, it's easy to channel a '60s Woodstock hippie. With this costume, it's all about some flare jeans, a fringe crop top, and flower crown to complete that carefree vibe.

4. Kendall For Marc Jacobs
Ah, it seems like just yesterday the Internet was blowing up because 18-year-old Kendall decided to go topless for the Marc Jacobs show. The key component of this outfit is a sheer top — with or without a bralette. Whatever you're most comfortable with is the way to go.

5. Miley Cyrus At The VMAs
Although Instagram doesn't plan to #FreeTheNipple any time soon, it doesn't mean you can't follow Cyrus' lead and do it anyway. Grab some suspenders, some double-sided tape, and you're good to go!

6. Alex From Flashdance
Nobody danced around in an empty studio quite like Jennifer Beals — but that shouldn't stop you from trying. Break out that black leotard and some leg warmers, and ask your mom if she can give you any hair-teasing advice. Something tells us she's got plenty.
No bra, no problem.
