A bra is no different than any other support garment, if you find you need one then wear it.  In my opinion if others have an issue with you wearing a bra just because your a man it is their problem not yours and they are the ones who should seek professional guidance.  Good lumbar support is vital to good health and living a full productive life.  After observing me flip and bounce and sensing my discomfort my trainer recommended that possibly I could benefit from a good sports bra or similar support garment and though taken a bit aback after I had time to think about it I agreed.  I could tell she was a bit uncomfortable broaching the subject but I also realized she felt it was her responsibility to offer me any help in achieving the goals we had set with the least discomfort and it was the same advice she would have given any women with the same issues.  And trust me after researching available support garments especially for men (which by the way are extremely pricey) I readily opted to buy a woman's sports bra.   It seems to me that I needed the support and the a sports bra was the most affordable option, the fact that I iwas a man was inconsequential.  Ultimately though it is a personal decision and it is only your opinion that counts.

I wear a bra and breast forms most of the time. I am a cross dresser and I love the way my bra and forms feel on me. I have not had any negative reactions just a few strange looks but that isn't my problem.
If men want to wear bras and breast forms or even have implants I would say go for it and enjoy who you are.

Yes of course it's fine for a man t o wear a bra. I'm very proud of my boobs. I used to be embarrassed to show in public, but now I wear a bra frequently and don't care if some men stare at me. I find women more accepting of my breasts than men.

I own a pair of forms, a 38D is the size, as I am 207 lbs. My wife bought them for me as a gift on own 5th anni. Since that day my wife and I have gone shopping together many times looking for lingerie for both of us. I do wear them in public. When shopping for a new bra & panty set, it's so much easier to find the right fitting bra if I have them on. I have yet to get weird looks and people who just stare at me. I also have many women's jeans (low rise), shirts, shorts and skirts. My wife and I agree that it has brought us closer together having this intimate detail in our marriage. So I say, flaunt them proudly!! Be secure with yourself and be free from the social disagreement on this subject.

I have worn breast forms in my bras in public for many years.  Most people don't even look at me funny any more and if people ask me why I have large female breasts I just tell them it is because I like haveing them.  In this day and age why not do what feels good.

Well in fact there is a boom in the last 20 years of men growing their breasts on purpose and the most intriguing part is that over 80% are straight and married, many with their wives approval! Oh and by the way, men that have "Man Boobs" have Gynecomastia and many are not even close to obese! So being "Fat" as it was put earlier, is not generally the reason have them! Times are a changing! It always does and not always to the liking of society!  What is the big deal? It's an article of clothing! It hurts no one! I am sorry but I don't see it being a topic of any concern!

I agree with most all who have previously responded.  I am not fat, but I have small boobs and my wife thinks that is great.  So from the start she encouraged me to wear a bra and once I did start I wondered why I hadn't before.  My cup size is a little bigger now, but I am not sure if that is to wearing a bra or just genetics.  But one thing I have found that is interesting is that women or more likely to notice, yet they are much more approving ... Go figure.

Why should Men not wear Bras if they are happy wearing one then so be it let the men wear whatever they like after all women wear all the mens clothes and no one says anything to them. Men just demand your rights and wear all the clothes you want to any time you like just have respect when doing so and do not broadcast it openly .

Yes. There are social ramifications to this but if he is secure in himself, then go ahead.
I wore a bra for a day - wanted to see what it was like to wear one - so I did some research on bra fitting and purchased several bras to try out. I found that the Bali concealers wire-free bra, size 44B fit me best. The cups flatten out pretty well, and the straps adjusted easily. I realized I liked the feel of the bra, it somehow felt good for my chest to be 'held'. I finished getting dressed and put on a flannel shirt and coat to hide any bra lines, then did my errands for the day. As I was running errands, I got used to the feeling of the bra on me and stopped thinking about it. I now know what my wife complains about when she is wearing her bras. Sometime, after lunch, I started to itch on the sides of my bra. I re-adjusted my bra but was itchy again within an hour. I took off my jacket and that seemed to bring some relief. Later, I was stacking firewood and found that heat and sweat was starting to collect under my bra cups. I had to reach under my shirt and wipe my chest with my hand to make it go away. I also had to move my shoulder straps a few times to find comfort (I can see the value of padded straps!). At the end of the day, when I took off my bra, I found that I had a light bra impression on my upper torso. I enjoyed trying a bra on for the day, but found that I was relieved to have it off of me as well.  I ended up washing my bra, then giving it to GoodWill - I just wasn't interested in putting it back on. I, however, am more intimately aware of what my wife goes through when she wears her bras, and my experience has helped me pick out better bras for her (my wife likes me being a part of her panty-bra shopping).

Yes, and all the lingerie and dresses and heels etc.  Heck, women get to wear whar they want why not men.  There are as many feminine men as there are butch women.  I love it when I am dressed as a woman and feel more feminine than most women I see on the street.

I'm a 44 year old heterosexual male who wears a bra 23/7.  This is to say that I never go braless unless I'm bathing.  My Fiancee is very accepting of this, and actually encourages me.  I first started wearing a bra when I was 12, just because it felt "right".  This progressed into a 23/7 basis in 1996.  I haven't went a single day in over 16 years without wearing one.  Wearing one is NOT a sexual turn on of fetish, and it's not because I want to be a female.  It's just a personal preferance.  I simply feel more comfortable while wearing one.  I have no inhibitions about it.  I'm not ashamed of it.  As a matter of fact, I'm very proud of wearing a bra...

There is nothing wrong with it!  I wear a 36C and have silicone breast enhancers to give me a fuller look. I love to wear my filled white lace bra under a tank top or a thin white t-shirt so it is always kinda showing and I have had girls even tell me that I look really good in a bra.  I am also shopping for a set of "full silicone breast w/high pretruding nipples" and maybe even moving up to a D cup.

When they have to, yes, of course. As I can see in some comments people don't know anything about the problem when have to wear bras or when it is required when going to swim.

I know a 35 yr old male and he needs to wear a bra as his boobs are a 40DD. They do look quite pert and feminine though.

Why don't all men who want breasts get breast implants and show them off.  Come on it is time now.

Sorry to say but many women do not think men should wear anything deemed exclusive for women.  I think they feel like that because many are narrow minded.

Sure, if they need too. Some men have big breasts. If they don't, there really is no need to. They are uncomfortable.
