No Bra Day was initially observed on July 9, 2011, but within three years it had moved to the 13th day of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Users on social media are encouraged to post using the hashtag #nobraday to promote awareness of breast cancer symptoms. Some women embrace No Bra Day as a political statement while others prefer the comfort of discarding what they view as a restrictive, uncomfortable garment.

No Bra Day was first held on October 19, 2011. The event was spun off a medical event that encourages breast cancer survivors to consider reconstructive surgery. An anonymous individual conceived of No Bra Day as a way to encourage women to enjoy being braless and to become knowledgeable about breast cancer symptoms.

#NoBraDay is a day set aside to encourage women to go braless and to take social media bound pictures as means to raise awareness and to intensify the campaign against breast cancer. Women are also encouraged to visit the doctors and have their breasts examined and survivors who have had part of their breasts removed are encouraged to go bare as a mark of honour and to do away with stigma.

#NoBraDay is one of the days given prominence to by the presence of social media as it was first started by an unknown individual some ten years ago and later got the attention of many on various new media platforms who have since joined the commemorated annual event.
