October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

However, instead of just breaking out your favorite pink sweater — perhaps think about ditching your bra for the cause.

In fact, October 13 is officially #NoBraDay where women are encouraged to leave their bras at home in order promote awareness on the unfortunate disease, as well as to help raise money for research. LOVES it!

It's said the origin of the "holiday" came from the fact that many women are unable to go braless after surviving breast cancer since the undergarments are needed to hold up their prosthesis following surgery. Wow, the more you know!

According to recent studies, around 12.3% of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. Even the most famous of celebrities have battled against the big BC.

Most recently, Shannen Doherty and Sandra Lee joined the long list of A-listers who've faced off against the sickness — including Giuliana Rancic, Sheryl Crow, and Kylie Minogue. Whoa.

Check out the full list (below).
